Gluten Free Guide to Eagan
It’s so easy (and tasty) to eat out in Eagan, even with dietary restrictions! Here are 6 delicious dining destinations that have you in mind when eating gluten free.
1. Bittersweet Gluten Free Bakery
This bakery has the words ‘gluten free’ in their name, so you know that’s their jam! This cute and unique spot has specialized in gluten free and dairy free baked goods since 2004 and the deliciousness has no end in sight. From breads to birthday cakes and pizza crust to muffins, you’ll be in GF heaven here. Tip: their donut drops are INSANE!
2. Granite City Food & Brewery
Granite City is known for its craft beers and made from scratch food, so it only makes sense that it offers a vast gluten free menu as well. Favorites include the City Wings, bone-in jumbo chicken wings available in Fiery Buffalo or Old Bay Dry Rub – they are perfect for sharing and getting messy with! If you prefer a more refined meal, the Mediterranean Chicken served with a balsamic glaze will please your GF palette.
3. Jensen’s Food & Cocktails
Jensen’s is an institution here in Eagan. Known for being a wonderful place to celebrate special occasions, the romantic and classy joint also celebrates gluten free dining. More than half of Jensen’s menu is GF including their Cedar Plank Salmon glazed with apricot mustard sauce or the famous Lobster Bisque – a warm and comforting start to a relaxing and delicious meal!
4. Doolittles Woodfire Grill
Famous for their signature, succulent wood-roasted meats, you don’t have to miss out on the fiery goodness just because you’re gluten free. The Spit-Roasted chicken should be your go-to if you want the quintessential Doolittle’s meal, but you can’t go wrong with the Maple-Bourbon Pork Chop or Braised Lamb Shank if you want to be a little more adventurous.
5. The Mason Jar
When we describe the Mason Jar, we think of words like ‘classic’, ‘comfort food’, etc. Most people don’t associate comfort food with gluten free, but at the Mason Jar they combine the two into some amazing dishes! Indulge in seared scallops served with a lobster, tomato and asparagus risotto or go a little lighter with a roasted pear salad dressed with spiced nuts and bleu cheese. Don’t forget that the Mason Jar is attached to Cupcake and guess what? They have GF cupcakes!
6. Wyatt’s Twisted Americana
Another comfort food expert, Wyatt’s specializes in “twisted’ burgers that are out of this world. Have you ever had a BBQ Cheddar Flytrap or a Cajun Gator Burger? Well, you can have both at Wyatt’s! With every sandwich, you can request a GF bun that is baked fresh right from Bittersweet Gluten Free Bakery (see #1).
