Gourmet Girls Gluten Free Bistro

Rating: A/A-

I was so excited to try Gourmet Girls Gluten Free Bistro.  I had read about it before and made a special trip to go there.  The people there were really nice, and the food was pretty good, but not quite as great as I was expecting.  I LOVE the fact that everything in the restaurant is gluten free.  Such a stress-saver! I honestly think my expectations were just too high. It kind of reminded me of Rose's Wheat Free Bakery in Chicago where some things are awesome and some things are just okay.

Breakfast Sandwich

I think this was my favorite thing on the menu.

The bread wasn't amazing, but it was pretty good, and who doesn't love a gluten free breakfast sandwich?!

Gluten Free Quiche of the Day

Waffle

I wasn't really that impressed with this waffle.  The flavor was just okay.  I also ordered a lot of food though, so you might want to take that into consideration.

Raisin Challah French Toast with Fresh Fruit

I also wasn't really that impressed with this dish.  I just felt like the flavors could have been better in addition to the texture.  It wasn't bad though.

Coconut Cream Pie

The filling on this pie was AMAZING!!! The crust definitely could have been better.

Overall, I think Gluten Free Girls is definitely worth the trip.  A lot of the food was great, and you can really tell everything is homemade.  I think, like I said before, that I just had my expectations a little too high. I will definitely be back though.
