Picnik is truly a one-of-a-kind coffee shop, serving a Paleo-inspired menu, which means gluten-free, corn-free, peanut-free and soy-free. They serve healing broth, chocolate chip cookies made from coconut flour, and fresh juices for enhanced brain health. Their specialty, however, is their coffee. They make their coffee with unsalted, grass-fed Irish butter and add just a dash of coconut oil extract.

Olive and June

Finding gluten-free Italian food is not always an easy task – especially gluten-free pasta that compares, if not exceeds, regular pasta in taste. Olive and June do a great job at accommodating gluten-free customers. Enjoy some Italian wine alongside their gluten-free pasta made in house, and finally satisfy that craving for Italian carbs.
