Gluten Free In Sf

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I didn't have much luck in SF other than two places.  One is the Mariposa Bakery located in the Ferry Bldg.  It's in the Embarcadero District on the bay.  The entire bakery is gluten free.  The other place is called Pier 21 - it's also on the bay.  Not a great location for kids, but they do have burger and fries, so maybe you could order to go.  It's more of a sports bar.  I was very discouraged, but my husband walked in there, told them what we were looking for, and walked out with the manager who wanted to meet me. She has been eating gluten free for years.  That place was a life saver for me.  Several places along the bay actually told me that I should move out of line because they didn't have anything for me.  I was dumbfounded and disappointed.  Good luck, and if you find something, please post it as I'm in SF a few times per year.

Mariposa has 2 locations - Ferry Bldg & the edge of Berkley.  You can get bakery stuff & sandwiches.  We had good luck with IN & Out burgers.  There are all the usual chains.

If you want to visit Pacifica (lovely coastal town about 12 miles south of SF), The Surf Spot is an excellent place for gluten free dining.  They are closed on Mondays.  I know you specified no pizza, but they do make an awesome gluten-free pizza in addition to other lovely foods and desserts, and gluten free rolls made in-house.  There is an outdoor area in the back of the restaurant, with a volleyball court and a grass area where kids can run and play, if you don't want to sit indoors.

 

In Half Moon Bay you can eat at Fish and Frites, on Main Street.  I was so excited to be able to have real fish and chips, all gluten free.  They use a rice based batter for the gluten-free version, and a dedicated fryer.  You have a choice of fish, fresh from the fishing boats at Pillar Point Harbor. (and it's two shops away from a really cute toy store...)

 

I don't eat in SF very often, but San Francisco is a very gluten free friendly city.  Many restaurants have gluten-free menus and vegetarian, vegan, etc options as well.  As long as you aren't craving clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, you should have little trouble finding places to eat.  

 

The Find Me Gluten Free app is a good resource for safe restaurants.  

 

I hope your trip is great and healthy!

Also, I second the Mariposa Bakery.  Their gluten-free cinnamon rolls are eye-rolling, stop what you are doing and enjoy them, tasty.

I'll third Mariposa Bakery....my kids love their chocoloate pumpkin muffins and just about everything else we have had from there.

 

The Bay Area is awesome for gluten-free dining -- try checking the find me gluten free website or app -- should find lots of options where sillyaks have left safe/not safe details.

 

Have a great trip :)

We went to Fog Harbor, The Daily Grill and Sausalito's Crab House and Prime Rib. I was able to find something gluten-free at each one. I do suggest these restaurants. The best was Nordstrom Cafe. The best service and they really cared. I hope this helps someone else on their gluten-free journey in SF. Also the Mariposa Bakery was good for bread and rolls. Yumm. :)

Its a bit spendy, more of a date place than a family placce. But the Stinking Rose has always been my stop when I visit SF. (I used to live there before I "knew" I had to be gluten-free)

 

And if you like Garlic, this place is great.
