Does anyone know of any gluten friendly restaurants in the St. Paul, MN area? Please let me know. Carol

Timberlodge, Outback, Good Earth (also has lots of organic and vegan choices), P.F. Chang's, Pei Wei, Bittersweet Bakery is totally gluten-free in Eagan (suburb). I recommend checking out the Northland Celiac's webpage before you go-they list a lot of these here and also it might be handy to know if there's a nearby grocery store you can use-they list those also-here's their site: http://northlandceliacs.fastmail.fm/dining.html

Do stop in at the Bittersweet Bakery in Eagan if you get the chance. Their carrot muffins are truly excellent and it is great to go to a bakery where it smells great and you can actually eat everything in the store. (Assuming your diet is just minus gluten) Don't be put off by the items in the display case the good stuff is all in the back. (Refrigeration issues)

Enjoy your trip.

Thank you both so much, this is great information. We are actually going there the week of Thanksgiving, my husband has family in St. Paul. While we're there we're going to go to the Vikings game, so I'm looking forward to that.

Have you tried the Chianti Grill or Good Earth in Roseville? I was wondering which one was better or if they both were worth going to?

Thanks again for the information, :)

I've never been to the Chianti Grill myself, but I've heard they have great ambiance, their steaks are supposed to be good, and they make a lot of their stuff from scratch so you can talk to the chefs to get what you want. It's pricier than Good Earth, maybe you could do lunch instead of supper there if you wanted to keep it less pricey.

I'm partial to Good Earth myself, my college roommate used to waitress there-we all went there often (good sign when you like to visit the restaurant your roommate actually works at!). Their place at Roseville doesn't have the greatest ambiance, but they have good vegetarian selections and organic food options, and the food is great. I always get the tea also-smoothies are a good choice if you're in the mood. I recommend calling ahead, especially if you are going Sunday lunch-it tends to be packed then and you can expect a wait during busy times if you just show up-I'd call ahead and they take your name, then you don't have much wait time. They opened a new place in Edina that I haven't been to yet-just checked out their website and they have photos-looks nice. If you want to check out their menu and prices ahead of time here you go-have fun!

I am going to be traveling for two weeks on buisness, the first part of the trip takes me to Minneapolis this weekend for a convention. I have been really stressing about what I am going to eat the entire time.

I was so excited to see the post about the Bittersweet Bakery! I will definitely be stopping in and stocking up on my way to the hotel. Thanks!!


Gluten free since 10/05

Let me know how your trip went. Did you have any good or bad experiences at some of the restuarants. And how was the gluten free bakery?
