I have lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest for the last 2 1/2 years, 5 years all together in my life. Something about the green trees and friendly people always pulled me in here. However, this time around I am gluten free and the food has been the best parts. Seattle is full of amazing gluten free food and most restaurants have options for those who are not celiac. My friends and readers who are traveling up here always ask me, “Where to eat gluten free in Seattle?”. I knew I need to summarize for you The Best Gluten Free Seattle Eats.
Since I am not from the area and I am still learning about everything- there are likely going to be a few places I miss in this post. Please, if I missed any, comment or message me! I want to try them all. Living about 45 minutes south of Seattle, so just roaming the city looking for food isn’t an option. I go with a destination in mind because I need the drive to be worth it. These restaurants are oh-so worth it and I keep going back for more.
The Best Gluten Free Food In Seattle
I am also going to add a few places that are not directly in Seattle, but not too far off either. If you are a local, or travel here often, then you might consider stoping by one of these places.
Writing this post is somewhat bitter sweet for me because in less than 2 weeks I will be moving from Washington to California where we are originally from. We are excited about this move, but Seattle will always and forever hold a special place in my heart. A lake house in Washington is in my 5 year plan because I can’t stay away from here forever. I hope to spend summers here and then maybe live here part-time when we retire.
If you have the opportunity to travel to the gorgeous Pacific Northwest give yourself plenty of time to eat through Seattle. The food, people, and sights will not disappoint you. So, what is gluten free in Seattle?
Here are The Best Gluten Free Seattle Eats.
Revolve Food and Wine- Dr. Dusty, the passionate and vibrant founder of this grain free haven has a passion. She knew that is was possible to create a restaurant with a sexy atmosphere that created gorgeous delectable dishes that are entirely grain free. Food that is made with good for you ingredients that is locally sourced and organic, even serving water that has been filtered using reverse osmosis. This restaurant is considered primal as they do have options with dairy in them. However, they are extremely accommodating to food restrictions, but I did not feel restricted because of what was available to me. Whether you want some comfort food (fish and chips, crispy chicken sandwich on a paleo bun), or a delicious glass of wine with an appetizer (bacon wrapped dates are AMAZING), you will find what you came for and then some.
This entirely gluten free restaurant takes all the worry away while you dine. Brunch, lunch, and dinner options are available. There is an amazing Mimosa flight coming soon. With a full bar that creates amazing cocktails (tell them you need gluten free alcochol) you can bring your non gluten free friends and they will come back time and time again because the food and the atmosphere is that good.
Grain free restaurants are very close to impossible to find. This place is a true gem where you can be free to eat all that your heart desires without having a single worry if you are grain free, gluten free, primal, and even paleo. I’m telling you my friends, grain free never tasted so good.
Capitol Cider– Capitol Cider is a casual, yet upscale dining experience with a warm and romantic ambience that you crave as an adult. Since it is an entirely gluten free kitchen there is no need to fret. You can enjoy all of the goodness the menu has to offer. They also have dairy free options and they are still looking to expand the dairy free offering. You can come in and nosh for brunch, lunch, dinner, or enjoy a night cap in the ballast bar downstairs with the weekly shows and activities they have going on. There is a plentiful selection of ciders on tap, along with wine, cocktails (ask for gluten free alcohol), and regular beer if you are bringing your friends along who are not gluten free.
For brunch you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a mimosa. They have plenty food to choose from, but to stay dairy free I enjoyed a traditional egg and potato breakfast, which was delish. My husband is not dairy free, so he enjoyed the biscuits and gravy. My son loved their vegan oatmeal and said it was the best he ever had.
I have not dined for lunch, but the must haves for dinner are the Fried Cauliflower, Kale Caesar Salad, Fish and Chips, and Sweet Potato Fries. You can pair your meal with a delicious cider on tap. It is just magical!
Razzi’s Pizzeria– Razzi is amazing! He is so sweet and everytime I have eaten there he recognized me, greeted the table, and made me feel welcome. Where do I start? This place is truly amazing. They have a dedicated gluten free kitchen downstairs where they make all of their dough from scratch to make bread, and its flipping amazing. Anything Italian you have a hankering for- they have got you covered.
An extensive menu front and back with appetizers- Vegan and GF Mozarella sticks, garlic bread, chicken strips, salads, bread to dip in oil and so much more. You can order some gluten free beer, or organic wine to go with your extra large pizza, calazone, pasta, sub, or whatever you want. If you are vegan- no problem. They have vegan cheese and vegan meat. If you have room for dessert try their vegan and gluten free cheesecake. Kids a little cray? They have a game room downstairs. We took the kids for the first time and it was a huge hit. My son said it was the best pizza he ever had (pizza is his fav by the way) and I must agree.
Razzi’s has to be at the top of your list when you visit Seattle. Tell him Living Freely Gluten Free sent you!
Franki and Jo’s- This vegan plant based joint is entirely gluten free and absolutely delectable. Get a gluten free waffle cone and load that bad boy up! The Salty Caramel Ash is my absolute favorite, but you really can’t go wrong. They even have date shakes! Make sure to save room after dinner at Capitol Cider and head over here. It’s about 6 minutes away (walking).
NuFlours- This sweet little café is entirely gluten free with vegan options. They have bread, sandwiches, lemon bars and so much more! I was very excited to find that they had gingerbread men and gingerbread house kits that were also dairy free. It was so much fun to build a gingerbread house with the kids. Stop in for a cup of joe and grab some pizza dough to go.
Ghost Fish Brewery- If you love beer and good food this brewery is your place. They have an extensive line of amazing gluten free beers and delicious food to soak it up. It is an entirely gluten free restaurant!
Outside of Seattle
Viva Tacoma- This entirely gluten free restaurant is vegan as well. Indulge in the nachos, cauliflower wings, mac and cheese, and breakfast options. They make a cashew based ice cream and always have a seasonal cheesecake that is to die for. This place is truly one of my favorites and the entire family loves it. You must have the nachos!
Glory Bucha- This is not a restaurant but a kombucha brewery based out of Arlington, WA. I am throwing this in because if you love your buch like I do, then you will want to venture out to this cute town. This handcrafted kombucha is low in sugar, low in yeast, and full of amazing refreshing flavor. It is literally the best kombucha I have ever tasted and I have tried them all. No vinegar or tartness. It is just perfect. You can buy a growler to go and you will want to!
Those are my favorite gluten free restaurants in Seattle. Have you dined gluten free in the Pacific Northwest? Did I miss any amazing gluten free restaurants in Seattle?
