More and more restaurants in the Fort Myers area have become more and more accustomed to accommodating diners with special dietary restraints and choices. Gluten free (GF) has become one of the fastest growing eating categories and local restaurants and café have been jumping on the culinary trend.
The Veranda is one of the oldest, most prestigious dining establishments in downtown Fort Myers and one of the few in the neighborhood to produce an entire gluten free menu. Enjoy choice meats, veggies and traditional dishes prepared sans the flour and wheat, while served in a romantic setting.

The cafe at Ada's Fresh Market has a large selection of gluten free options with a variety of spices and ingredients, all served in a casual, market atmosphere.
