This post has been updated. Transcend use to offer a wide selection of gluten free items as indicated in the original 2011 blog post below. However they have now changed suppliers and are unable to offer such a wide selection.
Currently, as often as they can Transcend will have some gluten free cookie options and soups that vary. Please contact the store location before visiting. You can visit their website at: http://transcendcoffee.com
I have never went to Transcend for coffee or pastries in the past, but I know they are quite the swanky place to go visit to baked goods and a coffee.
Out of the blue I received an email from Transcend's Executive Chef. Apparently one of our readers told them to contact us about some new gluten free menu options they will be serving.
Here is the low down on what's available gluten free:
2 versions of Pao de queijo, which is a Brazilian cheese bun, one traditional and another with guava baked in
Pupusa, both pork and vegetarian
Arepa con chicharron using local pork
Many daily soups are gluten free as well (be sure to ask)
Also's Transcend's sister company New Level Bakery at the Argyle location does made to order gluten free baguette's and pizza crusts.
So if you are near one of the three Transcend locations in Edmonton, drop by to check out some of their gluten free items.
