If you are travelling to Toronto for vacation, business or to see family, you do not need to worry about gluten free restaurant options or gluten free shopping options because there are plenty.
Gluten Free Eating in Toronto
Eatings out in an unfamiliar city trying to find gluten free friendly options always seems difficult. After all, it can sometimes feel frustrating finding where to eat gluten free in our own city of Edmonton.
Here are some places to try out while visiting Toronto:
|South St. Burger on lettuce with several toppings|
and guacamole on the side
Multiple locations including: Yonge Street, north of Eglinton Avenue
South St. Burger is a concept from New York Fries! Fantastic burgers! This concept has not made it to Edmonton yet, but there is one in Calgary. They do not have gluten free buns, but they will put it on a bed of lettuce for you. Here is the catch, we all know New York Fries are gluten free! However, South St. Burger serves up onion rings :-( So there can be cross contamination in the fryers. We were told the onion rings are done in separate fryers but we didn't wish to take the chance because we were travelling and didn't want to be sick on the road. South St. Burger has over 25 toppings to choose from including some unique ones like goat cheese, guacamole, garlic mayonnaise, and mango chutney.
Here is a must have while staying at a hotel or even walk in. Pizza Pizza is the sister company to Pizza73 here in Edmonton. The big difference is that Pizza Pizza has a gluten free crust! It is an additional $3.25 on a medium pizza, but atleats they have it! You also get a discount for pick-up, so it worked out to just over $11.00 for a two topping medium pizza. This is one of out must haves everytime we visit Toronto because Pizza Pizza has great pizza. Pizza73 could learn a thing or two from Pizza Pizza who has had this gluten free crust available since 2008.

Located just a few store fronts over from Duff's, Hollywood Gelato's is one of the best Gelato places in Toronto. Gelato itself is gluten free, however you have to be cautious of the specialty flavours. All teh fruit flavours here taste great and will be gluten free. Be cautious when choosing the chocolate bar flavoured gelato's as you need to know your chocolate bars and which one is gluten free. All their gelato is made in house so if you have any questions about ingredients, they should be able to show you.
