Experts estimate that 1 in every 100 people have celiac disease - a digestive disorder related to the consumption of gluten - and a much higher percentage of the population has gluten sensitivity.
In a related but unofficial study, our travel experts estimate that a full 100% of those with gluten sensitive stomaches enjoy taking a trip from time to time. But where to eat? 10Best will show you the way!
Whether you're allergic to wheat or just enjoy the benefits of gluten-limited diet (we hear some people report feeling less fatigued after making the switch), you should add Santa Barbara to your list of a delicious dream destinations. This small city by the beach has multiple restaurants with gluten-free options to delight your taste buds throughout the day. Enjoy gourmet breakfasts, lunches and dinners that meet your dietary needs with ease.
For breakfast, we recommend that you head to Backyard Bowls for a refreshing acai bowl or hot quinoa bowl topped with fresh, local berries. At lunch time, check out The Natural Cafe in the heart of downtown and do a little sightseeing. For dinner, enjoy a steaming hot pie from Persona Wood Fired Pizzeria. Ready for dessert?
