Connecticut Welcomes THREE More Dedicated Gluten-Free Restaurants


Connecticut just might be leading New England when it comes to dedicated gluten-free dining. With 5+ dedicated GF bakeries and 5 restaurants, the Constitution State’s gluten-free community is eating well.  Listed below are the three newest GF restaurants (one has two locations), as well as one that recently moved and expanded.

To see all of CT’s dedicated GF places, visit our dining directory or Connecticut Gluten-Free Dining Guide. And, as always, email us with corrections and additions. We don’t do this alone!
