As I visit Sacramento restaurants with a good selection of gluten-free menu items and try more locally produced gluten-free foods, I’ll be adding to the links on this page. and posting Sacramento gluten-free restaurant reviews here on the blog and on Yelp.
Where to find great gluten-free food in Sacramento restaurants
- Babe’s Ice Cream & Donuts
It used to be we could only get Pushkin’s gluten-free donuts on Sundays. But now, thanks to their team opening this stand-alone donut and gelato shop, ANY day can be a donuts for breakfast day!
If you are looking for a good place in Midtown for dinner that can make your non gluten-free friends happy, this is your place. WHIle the pizzas are hit-or-miss depending upon who is in the kitchen, their gluten sensitive pasta entrees are always worth ordering.
Whether you need gluten-free cake for a party, a pie for the holidays, or a grab-and-go sandwich on gluten-free bread, Pushkin’s has got you covered.
- Selland’s Market
This fast casual chain has a number of gluten-free sides and entrees for those nights when you want a healthyish dinner and don’t want to cook.
- Sibling by Pushkin’s
This casual restaurant from the Pushkin’s crew has the best gluten-free lunch/brunch menu in Sacramento. And they have a ton of vegan options, too. While anything you order will be delicious, I’m partial to the fried chicken and waffles and the Eggs benedict.
- J.J. Pfister Distilling
As a bourbon lover, we headed here for the tasting flights. But we stayed for an almost entirely gluten-free brunch menu. I can’t remember the last time there were gluten-free biscuits and gravy on a brunch menu! (spoiler alert: they are delicious, too)
- Seasons 52
I wouldn’t normally put a national restaurant chain on a local gluten-free restaurants list, but their flatbread means I really have to include them. They always have a good amount of gluten-free options on their seasonal menus, but I always order one of their flatbreads, often with the hummus appetizer with the plain flatbread for dipping into it.
Mexican food is always a great option for gluten-free food. But I’m calling out Zocalo for being good about not sneaking in undisclosed wheat where you wouldn’t expect it (like in corn tortillas. why??)
- The Coconut on T
Thai food is another solid choice for gluten-free entrees. But Coconut on T gets a special mention for actually listing on their menu which items are safe for those of us who can’t eat wheat.
- The Rind
Who says it’s impossible to make a fantasic gluten-free grilled cheese sandwich? Not the folks at Rind, who build theirs on a Pushkin’s Bakery bun.
- Revolution Winery and Kitchen. Just around the corner from Pushkin’s Bakery, this urban winery pairs their proprietary flights with a wide range of gluten-free and vegan entrees. The patio is the perfect place to linger for brunch or dinner.
My favorite Sacramento gluten-free food sources
While gluten-free food has become a lot easier to find in the grocery store, these stores offer the best selection of the brands I love:
