This past weekend, I was taken to brunch by some family members. Aware of my gluten restrictions, they decided to take me to Draeger's in San Mateo, a wonderful market that not only sells produce, but also has numerous amounts of gluten-free items for purchase! A gigantic banner on the front of their store even proclaims that the store is a supporter of those who are gluten-free.

On the second level of the store, above the shoppers and tucked away in a little corner, is a magnificent restaurant that serves an unbelievable brunch. The staff is acutely aware of the need to be gluten-free, and I had no problem ordering a delicious omelette with a side of herb-roasted potatoes. What sounds like a decadent dish that may encounter cross contamination was absolutely gluten-free and just wonderful. I enjoyed my meal, and I was very comfortable that those who ran the establishment took care of my needs.

If you are ever in the area, Draeger's is not one to miss. Take a little time out of your weekend and visit their restaurant. It is well worth it!
