Any National Chains That Serve gluten-free Breakfast?

Recommended Posts

Any National chains that serve gluten-free Breakfast?    I'm talking real breakfast including, but not limited to gluten-free waffles or pancakes.  I hate eating breakfast out because I'm tired of being relegated to eggs and bacon while watching my loved ones down a large stack of pancakes.  I can't believe all the gluten free pizza and burger options out there and no chains have picked up on pancakes or waffles.

We can't/won't even eat anywhere for breakfast because of cross contamination issues.  A chef told us that even some oils they use for eggs/hashbrowns/bacon has gluten in it.  He offered to cook our eggs in a skillet using butter.  We felt comfortable with him, but that's rare (at least in our experience).

Some chains also use pancake batter in omelet preparation to make them fluffier.  It is written in the description so check carefully on all egg mixture breakfasts.

 

Like cyclinglady, I don't eat breakfast out or any meals out if it can be avoided.  CC issues are everywhere except in my own kitchen.

I have never seen one, but would love to know also if there is one that exist!  We have to be so very careful also with gluten-free and cross contact. But I would love a restaurant that does it right! We have a local restaurant here that does pancakes, but they are not a chain.

Waffle House (depending on the location) can be terrific. They don't have gluten-free waffles or pancakes, but will change gloves, clean the grill and use a clean pan to make eggs, bacon or sausage, and hash browns.I have never had a problem with breakfast there. I know they are not national, but that is one good thing (among many) in the South.

i have not a good opinion on waffle house, even before i was gluten-free.  cleanliness was an issue, and that's not good.  and they always mixed up/messed up orders, so i would be worried because the people preparing your food have to pay attention to all the details.  not just my local waffle house, i have been to them all over the country.  just beware and do your homework  :)

I believe that the Original Pancake House has gluten-free pancakes but they use Pamela's which has almonds in it, so not for us.  Plus I can't do dairy or eggs so they seriously have nothing for me there.  They may be a local chain.  Not sure.

I've had Waffle House several times and they have cleaned the grill and switched gloves on request - very accommodating.  But unfortunately, no pancakes.  I guess since its batter-based, they would have to worry about cross contamination.  I've heard of Original Pancake House, but unfortunately there is only one or two in Texas.  I need to buy a franchise!

My biggest concern about any b'fast out would be the cross contamination.  Breakfast anywhere is always such a rushed event.  Seems like errors would be too easy.

The only three places I have eaten breakfast out  were: a totally dedicated G F bakery/cafe in Latham,NY run by my friend Sherry Lynn, Friedman's Lunch in NYC (they are great! G F bagels and lox and cream cheese, oh my!) and a local cafe near me (Jensen Beach, FL) that

does breakfast in a skillet. G F toast from a dedicated toaster. No CC, no worries.

I wrote about all 3 on Find Me Gluten Free.

 

Someday, I dream of places that can do right by us--breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

It's coming, guys. Hold fast to the dream!

 

We do need to buy a franchise--a gluten free franchise.  :)

Hope you live close cause I'll be there on a regular basis.  I used to love b'fast out.

Going out for breakfast is a rarity but believe it or not, I go to Chick-fil-A... order a bacon/egg platter with hash browns & yogurt with strawberries (no granola) & if u ask them to change gloves, it is a safe bet. Note they don't cook anything on their grill except eggs, the hash browns are cooked in a fryer that is only shared with fries (which are also gluten-free). It's not pancakes, but it works.

I had good luck at Denny's the other day... I really miss greasy spoon diner food sometimes, but this was a decent substitute.  The eggs/omelets and hash browns were fine.  They have a pdf allegergen list on their website, and I spoke with the server before taking the plunge.  I'll admit I was scared because of the cross-contamination potential, but that was a couple of days ago... I'm feeling good.

Denny's has a gluten free English Muffins now.   It's no pancake, but it's great to have an additional option on the plate from a national chain.

In case you are ever in the Orlando area the Kona Café in the Polynesian resort has WONDERFUL gluten free waffles.   They also have pancakes and French toast as well, I just haven't made it past the waffles.     I am sure they are sold on all the Disney properties serving breakfast, but I can go to the Polynesian without entering a park and without staying there so it is the only place I have had them there.

I had really good gluten-free Mickey Mouse waffles at one of the imexpensive Disney non-resort hotels on the property .  I believe it was the Doubletree.
