The Green Olive Diner
At The Green Olive Diner in Meriden, you can eat or cheat all you want, safely. They have a dedicated prep area, a dedicated griddle/grill, and a dedicated gluten-free fryer. They even make their own gluten-free pizza dough. Know what this means? This means the biggest GF menu we’ve ever seen. Here’s just a sampling: pizza, calzones, mozzarella sticks, fried dough, wings, chicken tenders, calamari, chicken parm, burgers on GF rolls, and pasta dishes galore. They also have GF pancakes, waffles, and french toast, along with GF toast and home fries. The owner takes pride in his GF menu. He adds to it regularly, and his pizza is a local favorite.
So if you miss going to an traditional diner, The Green Olive can probably help you scratch that itch. And, with a huge regular menu, you can bring the whole family, whether they eat gluten free or not. Just remember to balance all those starchy carbs with some veggies!
*The Green Olive Diner is not a dedicated gluten-free facility. Please use your own judgement when eating out, and always ask lots of questions.
