Wheatless And Wonderful: Ten Top Spots To Indulge Your Gluten-Free Sweet Tooth

Who says you have to forgo flavor when you're following a gluten-free diet? Especially when it comes to sweet treats. Luckily, for those with a celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, more places are offering interesting and diverse gluten-free options to their repertoire.

First up is Unrefined, one of the first dedicated gluten-free bakeries to open up in the metroplex. Aside from excellent breads and colorful cakes, expect to find cookies, pies and even freshly made sandwiches.  

When it comes to gluten-free cinnamon rolls, no one is doing it better than Hannah’s Gluten Free Bakery, located in the Dallas Farmers Market. But the shop's offerings don't stop there, you'll also find doughnuts, cookies and an amazing selection of cakes. Then there's Reverie Bakeshop, Dallas' only vegan bakery. This place boasts a wide range of delicious gluten-free options that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the stomach. The raw pina colada cake here is definitely what gluten-free dreams are made of.
Don’t bother scanning the menu for gluten free items at Company Cafe, because everything here is made without gluten, including pancakes, sandwiches, cocktails and desserts. The cafe also operates an online bakery that delivers GF breads and sweet treats to your location.

And if you want to buy straight from the source, then hit up Local Oven, one of Dallas' largest dedicated gluten-free bakeries that supplies crusty baguettes, artisan breads, pastas and sweet treats to grocery stores, restaurants and hotels nationwide.
