UPDATED MARCH 28 2017 [GF DINER IS NOW CLOSED] VISIT THEIR WEBSITE FOR FURTHER UPDATES www.gfdiner.com
GF Diner has been a great addition to the Celiac community in Edmonton since it opened. For anyone not familiar with GF Diner, here is a little bit of back story. Ted & Chris Wolff opened GF Diner located at 10015-82 Avenue Edmonton in order to create a 100% Gluten Free dining experience and adjoining retail store.
They have endeavored to continue adding delicious fresh baked goods and frozen entrees all made in house to their list. They also sell various gluten free pre-packed items from other companies in the retail store. I encourage everyone to check them out. They informed us that they are changing the store front somewhat more into a bakery and Take out retail section. Which is excellent news, since their bakery and ready to go meals are amazing.
Various flavors of cupcakes are made daily (changing daily) in house and sold in the store including:
- Raspberry Chocolate with Raspberry Buttercream
- Celebration Chocolate with Chocolate Buttercream
- Celebration Chocolate with Vanilla Buttercream
- Celebration Vanilla with Chocolate Buttercream
- Celebration Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream
- Cherry Chocolate with Cherry Buttercream
- Lemon Poppy seed with Lemon Buttercream
- Chocolate with Cookies & Cream Buttercream
- Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Buttercream
- Key Lime with Key Lime Buttercream
We were told that a specific flavor may be pre ordered in quantities of a ½ dozen or more.
GF Diner offers daily baked breads and buns, which are also available frozen. They typically bake for the day only. They also make Artesian Sourdough style breads & buns that require no toasting as well as country style and multi-seed handcrafted breads, reminiscent of old world sourdoughs contain no dairy or eggs though they do contain soy & corn.
The team at GF Diner is in the process of adding some new specialty breads including pumpernickel, cheese breads, poppy seed rolls, naan bread, focaccia and soft pretzel buns.
They carry cinnamon buns, fritters (varying daily), doughnuts and cookies and they are looking to add pies, tortes, bars and quiches to name a few additions in the works.
As mentioned GF Diner carries a variety of frozen entrees such as:
Beef Lasagna, Meatball stroganoff, Masala butter chicken, Creamy chicken alfredo, Veggie lasagna, Baked mac n’ cheese, Beef & chicken Enchiladas. As well as soups like cream of broccoli, mushroom or creamy potato leek soup.
As some of you may recall, most recently GF Diner introduced their own in house made pizzas; Egg free crust is available. On Fridays & Saturdays from 4:00pm to close (7:30) they are available for take out of eat in. During the rest of the week you can purchase premade frozen pizza in the retail store.
I am certain there must be items that I am missing in this list, so go and check out GF Diner located at 10015-82 Avenue and see for yourself.
