The 10 Best places to get gluten-free goodies

No more do you have to watch your friends and loved ones ooh and ahh over some kind of dessert that is off limits for you because of a gluten allergy. Nashville restaurants have been serving up delicious gluten-free options all over town, and bakeries are following suit. And it's not only bakeries that will do gluten-free upon request, like Crumb de la Crumb, but it is bakeries devoted to GF items only, whether they are special-order only locations that also deliver to area restaurants and coffee shops, like OMG That's Gluten Free?, or open all day, every day places like Khan's Desserts, people who can't gluten have many amazing options to choose from. There are even restaurants making their own creations to complement their more accommodating menus. At The Frothy Monkey, not only can you get a strong coffee creation, but you can also order up gluten free meals and desserts. Of course, this list is just the beginning as there are so many more places adding GF options without batting an eye, like the GF batter at The Pfunky Griddle or crepes at The Red Bicycle. So no more tears over those lost food memories. Now is the time where you can sink your teeth in and make everyone else jealous.
