As anyone with an allergy or special dietary needs knows, it's rare to discover a place outside of your own kitchen where everything is edible. I've walked into my share of bakeries and coffee shops where I could find nothing to eat. I usually grin and bear it. This weekend, however, I didn't have to.
Wildflours Bakery. Why are the flours at this particular eatery so wild? Because they're all gluten-free!
Kelley Hughes, the owner of the bakery, said she opened about 2 years ago, and that the response has been positive. She is on a gluten-free diet, so she understands the yearning for picking up a treat from a bakery.
Brunswick is also the home to other gluten-free friendly places. Each Saturday, the mill on Main Street fills with local farmers and their produce. Diagonally across the street from the bakery is Morning Glory Natural Foods, which is the host of a large bulk section and local produce. They also have an excellent tea assortment. Whenever I go there, I need to treat myself to a kombucha. Gluten free friendly restaurants include Gelato Fiasco, where the spicy food lover can find flavors like ginger, chai, and cinnamon. Bombay Mahal is an Indian restaurant with lots of gluten free options, such is paneer and curries.
Brunswick has always been one of my favorite places to visit for a day. After visiting Wildflours bakery, my appreciate for the town has been taken to a new height.
