We just returned from a week in Atlanta and I’m excited to share all the gluten free restaurants and cafes where we ate! I’ve even included a couple places I wanted to try but wasn’t able to for lack of time. If it’s your first visit to Atlanta, this list of restaurants is organized from North to South. I’ve included the MARTA stops and local attractions. I find when traveling it’s best to know where to eat when you are attending an event or tourist attraction. If you are looking for a well organized list of things to see and do during your visit, check out my blog 5 Days In Atlanta: Where To Stay and Play.

1. DaVinci’s Pizzeria

If you are in the mood for pizza (who isn’t?!), you must try DaVinci’s Pizzeria. They offer a 12″ gluten free crust with your choice of toppings. We split their pizza a couple times. DaVinci’s Pizzeria is one of the best gluten free pizzas I’ve tried.

1. Bareburger

An eco-conscious burger chain with loads of personality. Bareburger was such a fun restaurant to visit and the staff were friendly and helpful. As it was a Monday night when we visited, they were short staffed. However, the two waiters working the floor were patient and kind despite it all.

We ordered two American Burgers with fries and sweet potato fries. To finish off the evening, we split a Mix Your Flavors Milkshake with organic vanilla ice cream and strawberries. Bareburger offers gluten free buns, organic grass fed beef and gluten free fries.

downtown

1. Southern elements

This was an easy to access restaurant as it was in the lobby of our hotel, Hilton Atlanta. Unfortunately, Southern Elements does not have a designated gluten free menu or denoted items on the menu. You do need to speak to your server to learn what options you have for lunch or dinner. There is gluten free bread for sandwiches. We had the Turkey Bacon Club with a side of fresh fruit.

  • MARTA: Peachtree Center Transit. Southern Elements can be accessed by entering The Hub, entering the Marriott Marquis, riding the escalator down two floors and walking the skybridge to Hilton Atlanta.
  • Nearby Attractions: World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Centenniel Olympic Park and Skyview Atlanta.

2. Sear

A fire-inspired steakhouse in downtown Atlanta. We saved our date night out for Sear Restaurant. As we daily walked to The Hub at Peachtree Center, we would pass this restaurant in the Marriott Marquis. It’s a beautifully decorated location with a menu including several gluten free options.

We each ordered the Prime Cut Filet Mignon and shared the whipped potatoes and jumbo asparagus sides. The side options are large enough to share between two people. To finish off the night, we enjoyed the Strawberry Pana Cotta. Be sure to order this gluten free as it normally comes with a crumbled, cake topping.

  • MARTA: Peachtree Center Transit.
  • Nearby Attractions: World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Centenniel Olympic Park and Skyview Atlanta.

3. Aviva by Kameel

The #1 rated Atlanta lunch destination! This Mediterranean fast casual restaurant lives up to its accolades. Aviva is a busy location and there will be lines. However, don’t be discouraged as the line moved quickly. We recommend the Lamb Shawarma with grilled vegges, brown rice and falafel. When the soup of the day is Creamy Chicken, GET IT! If you are in the mood for something sweet, try one of their smoothies or gluten free desserts.

Aviva by Kameel is vegan friendly, only uses EVOO and 100% USA produce. Almost everything on the menu is gluten free.

  • MARTA: Peachtree Center Transit. Enter The Mall at Peachtree Center via the Marta station. If staying at Hilton Atlanta, enter via skybridge and Marriott Marquis.

  • MARTA: Peachtree Center Transit.
  • Location: 133 Luckie St NW, Atlanta GA.
  • Nearby Attractions: Super close to the World of Coca-Cola, Georgia Aquarium, Centenniel Olympic Park and Skyview Atlanta.

A casual Mexican eatery located in the Ponce City Market. We have also eaten at their Charleston location. Most items on the menu are gluten free and with a little help from our friendly waitress, ordering was easy.

I ordered the Chopped Salad: tomato, radish, pickled red onion, chickpeas, cucumber, gf tortilla strips, queso fresco, avaco, avocado vinaigrette dressing and grilled chicken. My husband ordered the Burrito Bowl: queso de Oaxaca, crema, hoppin john, cabbage, avocado, poblano with grilled chicken.

2. Five Daughters Bakery

In a small corner of the Ponce City Market, there is a bright spot where Five Daughters Bakery is located. They are smack dab in the middle between a candy shop and an cookie dough vendor. Five Daughters Bakery offer a few gluten free donuts to choose from. We tried the Chocolate Glazed, Chocolate Chip Doughnut.

After a bit of shopping at Ponce City Market, pop into Bellina Alimentari for gluten free dessert. We devoured a gluten free Panna Cotta: vanilla bean, lemon curd and mascarpone. I also ordered the gluten free Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles to go. They were amazing with the decaf latte I picked up across the way at Revelator Coffee Company.

h*** yeah gluten free

Since I’m not one for swearing, I’ll call them Heck Yeah Gluten Free. ha ha! This place is amazing but $$$. Be prepared to spend a bit of cash on some gluten free treats. A Biscuit with Egg, Sausage and Cheese plus a gluten free Cinnamon Roll will cost you about $25.  Both are amazing in every way. My husband also ordered a gluten free Blueberry Donut that was moist, sweet and flavorful. Tip: This restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday. If you are looking for coffee to go with your breakfast, walk around the corner to Dekalb Athletic Club.

conclusion

I’m hoping this list of allergen friendly, gluten free restaurants will help you out as you plan your visit to Atlanta, Georgia. If you have any questions, let me know. I am happy to help you plan your next trip!
