June 2014 I traveled to Atlanta for a few days for a conference. I had a little time the day I flew in and out to visit some restaurants. Unfortunately I didn’t get to all the gluten-free restaurants I wanted to or really get to see many Atlanta sights. There a couple things I wanted to see (Coca-Cola Museum, Aquarium, History Center, etc.), but I only had time to visit Piedmont Park. A few links below to my Atlanta post, including some of the gluten-free options in Atlanta:
Restaurants (* special gluten-free options):
- Bantam + Biddy (Midtown, Ainsley Mall, Avalon)*- gluten-free options, including chicken, cornbread, and meatloaf
- Bocado (West Midtown)– farm-to-table restaurants that reasonably affordable. Some delicious, fresh, and healthy options.
- Chick-a-biddy (Atlantic Station)*- highly recommended restaurant for gluten-free! Have gluten-free chicken tenders and mac & cheese.
- Goldberg’s Bagel Company & Deli (Atlanta Airport and other locations)*- uses Udi’s gluten-free bagels that you can order with cream cheese or on a breakfast sandwich. Certain locations have gluten-free bread and waffles. A high risk of cross-contamination, but after a night in the Atlanta airport I needed a bagel!
- Jason’s Deli (Midtown and other locations across Atlanta)*- national chain that uses Udi’s gluten-free bread, but makes some delicious sandwiches with it!
- Mia Arepa (Sweet Auburn Market and Decatur)*– Venezulean restaurant with arepas (corn pancakes stuffed with meats and fillings), cachapas (sweet corn pancakes), and empanadas. Everything on their menu is gluten-free.
- Stationside (West Midtown)*- cafe that is open for lunch and during concerts at the Terminal West concert venue. A lot of their menu is naturally gluten-free (like tator tots) or can be made gluten-free (like their sandwiches with decent gluten-free buns).
- Yeah! Burger (West Midtown and Virginia Highland)*– an absolute must do for gluten-frees in Atlanta. Gluten-free fried chicken sandwiches, plus gluten-free burger and hot dog buns. Buns have a separate toaster and fried chicken and fries are made in a dedicated fryer!
- National Center for Civil and Human Rights + Centennial Park– a museum on the American Civil Rights Movement, as well as other civil and human rights movements and present abuses around the world.
- Piedmont Park– Atlanta’s version of Central Park
