Gluten-free travelers will love the Space Coast. This beachy stretch of Florida has plenty of top-notch restaurants, and healthy ones, too. This health-conscious and diverse spread means plenty of gluten-free menus.
Some restaurants go full-out, with completely gluten-free fares, like our favorite, Happy Healthy Human, which is raw, organic, vegan and naturally gluten-free. Rodizio Grill is nearly 100 percent gluten-free, as well as free of peanuts and MSG. This Brazilian chain specializes in meats, carved at your table, and also has an unlimited salad bar with dozens of options.
Other restaurants, like D.I.G. Bistro, aren't completely gluten-free, but offer an impressive selection, from smoothies to salads to quinoa recipes. In fact, smoothie options – gluten-free, of course – abound at many coffee shops, like the Sunrise bakery, which also prepares gluten-free baked goods daily. Juice N Java Cafe serves up smoothies for breakfast and even sells gluten-free beer for later.
Want a bigger, sit-down meal? The Jungle Organic Restaurant is known for its gluten-free veggie burger. Most items here can be prepared gluten-free, and often for no additional charge, which is a rarity. When it's time for dessert, head to the Fat Donkey, where gluten-free diners can indulge in a jumbo peanut butter cup.
