10 Best Gluten Free Travel Destinations for Celiac Travelers

The original version of this guide was written wayyy back in 2019, at which point we were still living in San Francisco, working full time, and saving for the round-the-world trip that never quite materialized in 2020. But that’s a story for another time. 

Since then, we’ve quit our corporate jobs to focus full time on this here website, spent a collective five months in Europe over two years, settled in Portland, Oregon full time, and, most importantly for the purposes of this guide, eaten A LOT of gluten free food.

When we revisited this guide, we realized it needed some serious revising to make it reflect our most up-to-date experience.

So, over the winter of 2022, we did a full rewrite for this guide to bring you our top 10 gluten free travel destinations for – and this is crucial piece – foodie travelers with Celiac Disease.  

As we cover in our guide to gluten free travel, we truly believe you can travel anywhere gluten free provided you have access to a kitchen.

We know because we’ve spent a significant amount of time in both Colombia and Mexico, both of which seem like they’d be safe, but neither of which is particularly easy for Celiacs thanks to all sorts of hidden gluten. 

In this guide, you’ll find our top 10 gluten free travel destinations (cities, specifically) for gluten free travelers, ranked from 10 to 1. For each city, we’ll cover why we love the destination along with a few of the gluten free places we think you shouldn’t miss. 

By the end of this guide, we hope you have a couple of new cities to add to your (gluten free) bucket list, along with a few new bookmarked restaurants around the world. 

It’s worth noting here that we haven’t been everywhere in the world. Not even close. If there’s a place that you think belongs on the list, we’d love to hear it! Leave us a comment below and we’ll add it to our own bucket list.

The 10 Best Gluten Free Travel Destinations for Celiacs

Without much introduction or fluff, let’s get into our rankings!

This is all, obviously, really subjective. But that’s sort of what you’re here for, right? Our “professional” opinion on the best Celiac-friendly travel destinations. 

Well, here it is. We’re going to go from lowest ranking – which to be clear, is still a relatively high recommendation – and work up to our absolute favorite places to travel with Celiac Disease. 

10. Denver, Colorado

The vast majority of Alysha’s extended family lives near Denver, which means we’ve been out to Colorado’s capital fairly often over the past several years. 

We used to rate Denver more highly when it comes to its gluten free options, but after being on the road for a few years and experiencing a whole lot more of the world through a gluten free lens, it’s missing…something. And that something is hard to put our finger on. 

Denver sort of reminds us of a bigger Portland (where we live now) with a downtown core full of tall buildings and business suits surrounded by more residential areas with commercial strips with restaurants, bars, shops, etc etc. 

However, the one thing that stands out about Denver is how much it has changed over the past decade or so (and still is changing, evidenced by all the cranes around the city). 

And that change has brought a significant increase in the cost of living, which we think is one piece of the jigsaw puzzle that explains why a city is a good gluten free destination.

It’s the primary factor, we think, why Portland is so great while its bigger, more prestigious neighbors in Seattle and San Francisco are largely very “meh.”

Still, Denver deserves a spot on this list because there are a bunch of good dedicated gluten free restaurants in the Denver area (especially if you include nearby Boulder). 

The one thing that Denver is missing that every other city on this list has is a world-class gluten free bakery. Someone should start that!

Here are a few of our favorite gluten spots in Denver. 

  • Quiero Arepas: If you know us, you know we’re huge arepa people. Specifically, the Venezuelan kind that are cut in half and stuffed like a sandwich. And Quiero Arepas are the best arepas we’ve had in the United States. They have two locations, one standalone restaurant south of downtown, and one in Avanti Food & Beverage in the Lower Highlands, which has a fun food hall vibe. 

  • River and Roads Coffee: Come for the coffee, stay for the excellent baked goods and BREAKFAST FRIES. 

  • Super Mega Bien: Great Latin American-inspired food right in the middle of the action in RiNo (so many acronyms! This one means River Arts North). Double check, but there is usually only one item on the menu – a dessert – that contains gluten.

9. Montreal, Quebec

Montreal was an extremely pleasant surprise in terms of both the city itself, which quickly climbed our list of Canadian cities (sorry Vancouver), but also in terms of the gluten free scene. 

There’s a certain youthful energy that exists in cities with a big student population (and a relatively low cost of living), and Montreal has it in droves. It’s hip. It’s happening. The nightlife rivals cities like Las Vegas. It’s a good time all around. 

Oh, and the relatively low cost of living compared to other major Canadian cities like Vancouver or Toronto means that there is plenty of innovation to be had in the food and drink scene, which includes gluten free food. 

I guess it shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise that the French speaking part of Canada would have its pastry game on point, but there are several gluten free bakeries in Montreal that I wish I could pack into my suitcase and bring home with me. 

Unsurprisingly, there is also a great place for gallettes – essentially a savory crepe – that I went to on three separate occasions on one trip (so much so that they basically knew me by the third time). 

The point is that we spent a week in Montreal, and we fell in love. 

Here are our favorite gluten spots to eat in Montreal. 

  • Crêperie du Marché: It is not an exaggeration to say that I went to this stall in the Marché Jean-Talon three times over the course of a week, and that they knew me by the third time I showed up, this time with Alysha in tow. Their specialty here is the savory galettes, which are traditionally made with a buckwheat batter (all crepes here are gluten free). They also have a nice selection of cider to go with them. 

  • The Bakeries: There are two excellent gluten free bakeries in Montreal that are worth visiting, and they’re a few blocks apart (near Marché Jean-Talon). The first is Boulangerie Le Marquis and the second L’artisan Délices Sans Gluten et Sans Lait. Both have excellent pastries, though the sheer amount of choice at the latter option was mind-blowing (everything from pain au chocolat to eclairs and tarts). 

  • Krapow: Great southeast Asian food out of a compact spot on Ave. Mont-Royal. The beef krapow, their specialty, is amazing, and we went here multiple times too.

8. Paris, France

For a variety of reasons, Paris – and France more generally – is the place where I get the most questions in real life. Paris is on a lot of bucket lists, and people have dreams of gluten free baguettes and crepes at a cafe along the Seine. 

It’s also one of the most controversial destinations – gluten free or not – because people have such high expectations of Paris going in.

Here’s the thing – France is TERRIBLE for Celiacs… with exactly one (okay, two or three, but that’s not nearly as dramatic or impactful) exception. 


French food is a nightmare for Celiacs. Between the love of fresh bread, contaminated fryers, and flour added to basically every sauce, French food isn’t even a little Celiac-friendly. 

However, Paris is actually a pretty good gluten free city. But the one thing you’re not going to find is gluten free French food (aside from bread and pastries – more on that in a second). Which, depending on what you’re looking for, may or may not be something you’re excited about. 

Paris, like many big cities around the world, has plenty of gluten free options. So many, in fact, that you probably won’t be able to make it to all of the places you’re excited about on a 3-4 day trip. 

Here are our favorite gluten free spots in Paris. 

  • Boulangerie Chambelland: “I would go back to Paris just for Chambelland” -Alysha. This place is the real deal. They’re experts at both bread AND pastries, and we would put Chambelland in our top three gluten free bakeries around the world. It’s near Canal St. Martin, which is a little bit of a detour, but it is WELL worth it. Every day, if you can swing it. 

  • Little Nonna: This Italian pizza spot near the Arc de Triomphe rivaled the best gluten free pizzas we had in Italy. Of the many 100% gluten free pizza spots in Paris, this was by far our favorite, and makes a great dinner option near the Champs-Elysees. 

  • Cococo: This is a 100% gluten free Japanese joint in Le Marais, and after visiting twice over the past two years, it’s easily the most fun I had eating in Paris. They do gluten free bento boxes, which means a small bite of a bunch of different things, including fried chicken (which is the star of the show, we think). It’s right in the center, perfect for a lunch before or after, say, the Louvre.

7. Los Angeles, California

When you boil it down, there are two types of people in this world. Those that prefer the vibe and layout of San Francisco, and those that prefer the vibe and layout of Los Angeles. 

Full disclosure – we’re very much the former. We lived in San Francisco for nearly a decade, and it’s one of our favorite cities on the planet.

And we’ve gotten comments and emails from people on the other side of this perpetual debate calling us typical snotty Northern Californians.

The one thing that we absolutely cannot stand about Los Angeles is the fact that you HAVE to get in a car and drive 30+ minutes to go ANYWHERE. 

However, it is absolutely undeniable that the gluten free scene in L.A. is miles ahead of San Francisco and the broader Bay Area. L.A. has a (large) handful of great, innovative dedicated gluten free restaurants, along with a couple of the best gluten free bakeries on the west coast (according to us). 

Our feelings on L.A. as a city remain mixed, but we concede that as a gluten free travel destination, it deserves a spot on this list. 

Here are a few of our favorite gluten spots in Los Angeles. 

  • The Gluten Free Bakeries! Los Angeles is #blessed with a handful of great gluten free bakeries, though you’ll have to spend hours in traffic trekking across the city to get to them all. Of the many options, Kirari West was probably our favorite because of the texture on their pastries (particularly croissants, which are hard to nail!). Modern Bread and Bagel (which we’ll talk about below again) also has a location here, and their bagels are out of this world (particularly the sandwiches). Wow Bakes is a wildcard – it’s a one person operation, and you’ll have to reach out in advance to see how to make it work, but her sourdough bagels and doughnuts are great!

  • Ecco Un Poco: Authentic Italian gelato right in the heart of L.A., and everything is gluten free (yes, including the cones). Last time we were here, we had a pretty extensive conversation with the people who turned out to be the owners about sourcing Italian ingredients like hazelnuts and pistachios. Delicious!

6. Florence, Italy

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, also belongs on this list. Matt spent a week in Tuscany with his mom for her 60th birthday recently, and fell in love with the rustic nature of Tuscany’s food. 

There’s something special about a cool evening spent with good conversation, red wine, and pappardelle al cinghale (a thick pasta with a wild boar ragù). 

Florence is definitely a different vibe than the more rural parts of Tuscany. It’s a compact city that is perpetually full of tourists, but if we’re talking on a per capita basis, it probably is the best gluten free food city in Italy. 

From bustling pizza spots to traditional Tuscan trattorias lit by candlelight, there’s a wide range of gluten free Italian options to enjoy in Florence. 

Here are our favorite places to eat in Florence. 

  • Sgrano: A 100% gluten free spot a few blocks away from the Uffizi Gallery, there are three things to know here. First, the street it’s on – Via dei Neri – is known for schiacciata, a Tuscan flatbread sandwich. People line up for hours to get their hands on one of them around lunchtime. Sgrano offers that experience, but 100% gluten free! Second is the restaurant, which offers a more robust menu including pizza. Third is their new osteria a few blocks away, which is a good place to go for a sit down lunch or dinner. 

  • Da Garibardi: This is a cozy trattoria in Florence’s historic center that focuses on Tuscan cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here, and would recommend it. Especially for the pappardelle alla cinghiale. 

  • Bottega Artigiana del Gusto: It’s a bit of a journey to get here, but this cozy little gluten free bakery on the other side of the river is worth it. They have a wide range of sweet and savory pastries, including ready-to-eat flatbreads and pizzas and great gluten free bread.

5. Barcelona, Spain

Spain, like Italy, is a great gluten free destination.

Like Italy, it’s partially because of the almighty tourist dollar – the scene is generally best in big tourist destinations like Madrid and Barcelona – but also because there are active Celiac associations operating in both of those cities that provide resources to both locals and visitors. 

In particular, we used the map of certified establishments created by the Associació Celíacs de Catalunya (Catalonia’s Celiac Association) to help us find a few places in our gluten free Barcelona guide

We went back and forth between Barcelona and Madrid, and which city has a better gluten free scene. Ultimately, they’re roughly equal, and many gluten free restaurants and bakeries have been expanding to include a location in both, which is an interesting wrinkle. 

Barcelona slightly edges out Madrid in terms of the number of really good gluten free bakeries, so we’re putting it near the top here. 

Here are some of our favorite places to eat in Barcelona. 

  • Jansana: Our favorite of the many gluten free bakeries in Barcelona! The pastries are where they really shine, and we were lucky to have stayed basically around the corner from them on our first trip, so we visited early and often. 

  • The Fish & Chips Shop: IMPORTANT – ONLY ONE LOCATION IS DEDICATED GLUTEN FREE (THIS ONE). Things we didn’t expect to find in Barcelona (or anywhere else in Spain): gluten free fish and chips. However, this place makes some really good fish and chips, along with a bunch of other fried goodness in a similar vein. Get the coleslaw! 

  • Manioca: Brazilian tapioca crepes are another food group that we’re obsessed with, and this was a find that was facilitated by the map from the Associació Celíacs de Catalunya. Everything is gluten free, and the star of the show are the tapioca crepes, with the pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread made with tapioca) and patacones (fried plantains) as worthy sidekicks.

4. Rome, Italy

I know what you’re thinking. Rome? Isn’t that the land of pizza, pasta, and all things gluten?

I know that because that’s exactly what I thought before I had ever been to Italy. 

Turns out, Italy is one of the best countries to visit with Celiac Disease, provided you know where to look (which is what we’re here for). They have an active Celiac Disease association (the AIC – Associazione Italiana Celiachia) that helps educate and train restaurants on how to 

provide a safe gluten free meal when there’s all sorts of gluten flying around. 

For more on why we love Italy for gluten free travelers, head over to our guide to gluten free Italy

Essentially, we like Italy because their gluten free food culture is relatively inclusive. At restaurants that cater to gluten free folks, you get to eat basically the exact same menu including pizza and pasta, prepared separately and safely, versus getting a small choice of salads (which is common in the US and other places in Europe). 

But now, let’s talk specifically about Rome, which we think is probably the best gluten free city in Italy (you’ll also find another one on this list). 

Rome is undeniably charming and romantic, but it’s also a massive city. Which means it has a nearly unlimited number of restaurants. Including a bunch of restaurants that are set up to serve safe gluten free food. 

Roman cuisine is equal parts simple and delicious, which is somewhat counterintuitive because we think of Rome as this rich, historic place. Which is true, for a small subset of Romans.

The vast majority of Romans a couple of thousand years ago were relatively poor, making do with simpler, cheaper ingredients. 

The four Roman pastas – carbonara, cacio e pepe, amatriciana, and pasta alla gricia – are all made of similar ingredients with small twists that differentiate them from one another.

We like amatriciana (the only tomato-based sauce) and carbonara (which should NOT have cream in it). 

  • Mama Eat / Mama Eat Lab: While not 100% gluten free, Mama Eat is a pioneer in the gluten free dining scene because they take serving Celiacs so seriously (at least partially because the owner’s daughter is a Celiac). Separate kitchens, separate equipment, separate staff. They do it right. The result is safe, delicious Italian food with a focus on Roman cuisine. Get the amatriciana (a tomato-based Roman sauce) and the pizza, whose crust is the best we had in Rome. The original location is in Trastevere, and Mama Eat Lab is a few blocks from the Vatican (great option for lunch post-Vatican). 

  • Le Altre Farina del Mulino: There are a few 100% gluten free bakeries in Rome, and this one is our favorite. Mornings bring cornetti con crema di Pistacchio (our favorite), while lunchtime brings pizza al taglio (pizza by the square slice, a Roman specialty) and other savory lunch items. 

  • All the 100% gluten free gelato shops: If you’re in Italy and you’re NOT doing a gelato a day, we’d argue that you’re doing it wrong. Luckily, while normal gelato shops are a bit of a minefield of cross-contamination, there are at least three great 100% gluten free gelato shops in Rome, all right there in the city center. We love Grom, which has locations all over Italy and the rest of Europe (the gelato is really good), but Fatamorgana (near Piazza Navona or in Monti) and Fiocco di Neve (near the Pantheon) are also great options. All three are gluten free, including the cones. 

  • El Maìz: As we’ve already covered, we love arepas, particularly the Venezuelan version which is stuffed like a sandwich. Who would have thought we’d find a 100% gluten free arepa spot in Rome? It’s in Prati, near the Vatican, and it’s well worth a visit for something a little different than Italian food.

3. London, United Kingdom

Ah, London. Coming in at second in our gluten free city ranking is one of the best cities in the world, gluten free options aside.

It’s massive. It’s diverse. There’s a nearly unlimited number of things to do and see. And there’s a great selection of gluten free restaurants and bakeries. 

A few years ago, we took an impromptu two week trip to London in the springtime with plans to get out of the city into the broader U.K. for a few day trips. 

By the time the two week mark rolled around, we realized that we still had things that we wanted to do, see, and eat, and we never quite got around to leaving the city. 

Putting the lack of a language barrier aside, the pure volume of gluten free restaurants in London means it has to be somewhere on this list, and it’s the quality and diversity that really brings it up near the top of the rankings. 

We ate almost every single meal out over those two weeks, from street food (arepas!) to sit down restaurants (almost all were 100% gluten free), and barely made it to all the places we wanted to eat. 

Here are some of our favorite places to eat in London. 

  • Pabellón: Excellent Venezuelan-style arepas – we walked a couple miles along the Thames to get here one last time before leaving London on our 2022 trip. It’s that good! 

  • Niche: Our favorite sit down meal at a dedicated gluten free restaurant in London, Niche is excellent. We enjoyed the parmesan cheddar doughnuts and the pot pie (the fillings change seasonally). I have plans to make it back here for a Sunday roast on my next trip later in 2024. 

  • Ceru: Our favorite gluten free meal in London! Although it’s not dedicated gluten free, the vast majority of the menu is gluten free (watch out for the pita bread, which is not gluten free). The sides changed our lives, introducing us to the pleasure that is oven roasted parsnips and polenta fries.

2. New York City

If you’ve spent any time reading our guides, you probably already know that we’re very much city people. But New York City is A LOT, even for us.

Coming from cities like San Francisco and Seattle (and now Portland), where we’re used to a small downtown core with big buildings, it still impresses us that basically all of Manhattan is more than five stories tall.  

However, that “a lot” has plenty of benefits, one of them being the diversity and volume of people. And a big, diverse population usually means there is great food to be had! 

New York City probably wins as the best gluten free food city in the United States by volume. We still think – SPOILER ALERT – Portland is better on a per-capita basis, but in terms of the total number of safe gluten free spots, New York City is hard to beat. 

From gluten free bakeries with some of the best gluten free bagels we’ve ever had to 100% gluten free sushi spots and, of course, really good Italian food, New York City is a delight for gluten free foodies. 

Here are some of our favorite spots in New York City (there are way too many to list here, so read the full guide for more. 

  • Modern Bread and Bagel: We’ve already mentioned one of our favorite gluten free bakeries in the world (Chambelland), this place also deserves a spot on the top three list for the bagels alone, which are pretty solidly the best gluten free bagels we’ve ever had, but also the rest of the baked goods. 

  • Keste Pizza e Vino: In a city full of pizza, it’s actually kind of hard to find a good gluten free pizza in New York City. Enter Keste, which is our favorite of the few options in the city. One thing to keep in mind: they use gluten free wheat starch, which we’d consider safe for Celiacs (provided it’s labeled gluten free, which the one they use is) but NOT safe for people with a wheat allergy.

  • Nami Nori: You know what we love? Places that make it fun to eat. Nami Nori is all about the temaki, a specific kind of sushi hand rolls. Their rolls are kind of like a taco, but sushi. The interior is nice, and we’d sit at the bar if we were to do it again to watch the artists create their little masterpieces. They now have three locations – the original in the West Village, plus Williamsbury and Montclair, NJ.

1. Portland, Oregon

Listen, we’re almost certainly biased here given the fact that we moved to Portland a few years ago, with the excellent gluten free food scene (not to mention the great gluten free beer and cider scenes) playing a major role in that decision. 

We love to eat. More specifically, we love to try a lot of different types of food.

And if you’re a gluten free foodie, we strongly believe that Portland is the best city in the world for eating a wide variety of gluten free foods, from Burmese to Indian to Colombian, and just about everything else you could possibly think of. 

We have a few hypotheses for why Portland is at the top of the list in terms of gluten free food (and, we’d argue, food in general).

Our favorite – and the one we spend the most time discussing amongst ourselves and with friends and family – is the food truck to restaurant pipeline. 

For whatever reason, Portland has a very established food truck culture that has become famous. That thriving food truck scene has opened up a relatively low cost option for purveyors who are looking to try something a little different. 

Combine that expanded opportunity with the lower cost of living than other cities on the west coast like Seattle and San Francisco, and you have a fertile breeding ground for innovation in Portland’s food scene. 

There are countless examples of this phenomenon in the Portland food scene. Some of the city’s most famous restaurants today (Fried Egg I’m in Love, for example) started as food trucks, and have slowly expanded into brick-and-mortar. 

Portland is a great food city, gluten free or not, and you can spend a whole lifetime eating and drinking your way through the city and never run out of new and exciting things to eat. 

That’s our plan, anyway. 

Here are our favorite spots in the city. 

  • New Cascadia Traditional: I think it’s rare to find a gluten free bakery that excels in both pastries and baked goods like bread, bagels, and pizza crust. Most of the time, with a few exceptions (many of which are in this guide), usually you’ll find that bakeries tend to specialize in one or the other. New Cascadia’s specialty is their breads. Their Farmhouse bread is our go to gluten free bread, and their bagels and pizza crust are also divine. That’s not to say their pastries aren’t good – their maple bars are excellent – but they really shine in the bread department. Go when they have their pizza oven going and you can get their pizza hot straight out of the oven!

  • Groundbreaker Brewing and Mutantis: Two of the top five gluten free breweries in the country are a short drive apart from one another, and they’re both worth a visit if you’re into gluten free beer. And we do mean gluten free – meaning made with gluten free ingredients in a dedicated gluten free brewery – none of the gluten-reduced stuff that has made Matt sick many, many times. Both have a good gluten free food option onsite too (Groundbreaker has Salvi PDX, whose pupusas are a great companion to a beer). Mutantis has…

  • Honey Butter Country Fare: A few years back, Honey Butter Country Fare was located up near Mississippi Ave, a few blocks from where we lived. We would go here once every other week or so, and it was a magical time to be gluten free and alive. Their specialty is gluten free fair food, like corn dogs, funnel cakes, and fried Oreos (but not real Oreos, because oats). Now it’s right outside of Mutantis in Northeast Portland, which is perhaps the best 1-2 gluten free punch in the city right now. 

  • Kann: The most hyped restaurant in Portland history? Seriously, there was a full court PR press happening when Kann opened a few years ago, and we managed to snag a hard-to-come-by table one night by showing up at opening and waiting an hour or so. The food is Haitian cuisine with Pacific Northwest ingredients, and we’ve been twice now and would happily go a third time if we had a reason (and fourth, and fifth). This is probably the best place for a gluten free sit down meal in Portland (though it depends on what you’re looking for). Everything is gluten free and dairy free, including the desserts. Order the cauliflower, if they have it. 

  • Berlu Bakery: Portland is blessed with a bunch of great gluten free bakeries, but this is by far the most unique. They make gluten and dairy free Vietnamese pastries every weekend (pre-order by Wednesday if you want the best selection!). Our favorites are Bánh Khoai Mì Nướng (a cassava root cake with seasonal fruit) and the mango or kiwi roll, if they have it. Their savory noodle soups are also excellent, and are a recent discovery of ours that we look forward to every time we order (which is about every other week, depending on whether we’re around or not).

  1. Hi Matt
    GF in Slovenia is easy and coeliac disease is well known. There may be issues with fried foods and potential cross contamination. Some dishes are prepared using flour as a base.

    Vietnam is easy as well, with rice being the base grain for most meals, either as rice noodles or rice grain. The cuisine does not use soy, rather fish sauce which is naturally GF. Obviously, fried foods are no go, but it depends if rice flour or normal flour is used. Soup is fresh and most are clear of gluten.

    Two easy places fir coeliacs to travel

    1. Croatia and Slovenia were incredible food spots for myself (Celiac) and my SO (lactose intolerant) everywhere we went, people helped us find things on the menus and while there aren’t a bunch of dedicated GF places, we never had an issue, we just told them and they said “no problem” and brought us delicious food. We also ventured to our first Michelin star restaurant in Rovinj, Croatia (Monte) highly recommend!

      1. Slovenia was on our list for last year before we had to postpone indefinitely! I totally didn’t know about that spot in Rovinj – I’ll have to add it to our list. We’ll make it to both of those places at some point, it’s a matter of when not if. Thanks for your comment!

  2. If you haven’t been to San Diego recently, it’s great! Citywide, most restaurants are mindful of the GF diet. Little Italy has some of our best restaurants in the city and they all have gluten free options and menus! Even our dim sum spot has a GF menu. Overall, I think it’s easier & safer to eat than LA, because LA only has some areas & then the hipster restaurants.

  3. My husband and two kiddos have celiac. We just returned from a trip to Costa Rica and were thrilled with all of the GF options. We found a lot of GF food (pasta, cereal, crackers, etc.) in the grocery store, and a lot of restaurants had the GF symbol next to menu options. It was fantastic!
