Does Milestones have a gluten free menu? You bet they do

A funny thing happened, Amanda went to visit Milestones to meet a friend for lunch during our visit to Toronto.  She found out they had a gluten free menu.  So obviously, after her meal their I was like "So you're going to write a blog post now right?".  Funny enough, when we got back from Toronto a reader wrote us about a great experience she had at an Edmonton Milestone and how she was happy to order off their gluten free menu.  So me being so excited every time we get an email from a user, I asked if she wanted to guest blog, and so.....

A couple of weeks ago I had my first gluten free burger at Milestones. I haven’t been to Milestones for years, mostly because I didn’t think they had much to eat that was gluten-free except for salads, but now they have a small gluten free menu with just a few items.

I started reading their menu preparing to be disappointed with bland offerings like plain grilled chicken or fish served with steamed veggies and rice, but what immediately caught my eye was their gluten-free burger. I knew I had to order it. The description is as follows: “Lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and your choice of inspired burger toppings on a gluten-free bun. Served with crisp mixed greens in our house-made lemon-chardonnay vinaigrette.”

Now that I am reading the description again, I don’t remember being asked what toppings I wanted on my burger, but I do remember how it tasted – it was really good. The burger patty was thick and juicy and cooked perfectly, the gluten-free bun was soft and toasted lightly and the lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle made it perfect. I looked inside the bun to see if there were any condiments and I couldn’t see any, but I didn’t care because the burger was so juicy and even though the bread was toasted it wasn’t dry at all. It was the best burger I can ever remember having in my life (even when I could eat gluten)!

Gluten free toppings available:

  • Californian - House-made avocado salsa, tomato and double-smoked bacon
  • Four Cheese - Cheddar, pizza Mozzarella, Goat cheese, Feta cheese and roasted garlic
  • American  - Double-smoked bacon and Cheddar

The salad however, left something to be desired. It was basically spring mix (you know the mix you can get at the grocery store), with a tasteless dressing and nothing else. I took one bite and left it. But don’t let that discourage you, the burger is excellent and quite filling on its own so you won’t even miss the salad – I didn’t.

  1. I asked Fiona and she it is their own proprietary product made by Cara (whom operates Milestones).

  2. And don't forget the Ganache Torte - it is awesome!
