On a recent trip to my hometown of Boston, I discovered several eateries worth sharing:
On the menu is a single gluten-free item, their flourless chocolate cupcake. Frosting must be purchased separately by the “shot.” Though rich, the ones I tried on my visit were slightly dry. *Bliss is not a gluten-free dedicated facility, though the flourless recipe itself has no gluten ingredients.
I’ve always loved sweet things in the morning. But after going gluten-free, brunching with friends requires I avoid the beloved pancake menu completely. Not at The Friendly Toast, which just introduced gluten-free pancakes in late May. The chocolate chip and banana King Cakes are served with a dollop of melted peanut butter in between, with whipped cream and bacon. Had the peanut butter not been the sweetened ice-cream sundae type, it would have been perfect. But this came pretty close to perfection. And fit for a king.
Get there early to grab a seat. Their weekend latin brunch boasts molasses-sweetened plantains, spicy hot selections, and a raw oyster offering. I recommend the Yucatan breakfast platter with eggs, beans, mango and avocado. They take great care of patrons with food allergies.
