Amsterdam Falafel – Adam’s Morgan
Fresh falafel with no pita, plus unlimited amazing toppings (hummus, beet salad, cucumbers) for $5.
Baked and Wired – Georgetown
Best baked goods in DC, hands down. I’ve had a delicious blondie and caramel bar there so far, but they also have cupcakes and cookies (usually at least one gluten free of each). They also have really solid coffee/espresso to wash them down.
Churchkey - U Street
Six gluten free beers, including Estrella Damm Daura, my fave. They also have great cheese platters, and will bring up chickpea crackers from the restaurant downstairs, Birch and Barley, if you ask for them. Just added flatbreads to their menu.
District of Pi - Penn Quarter
Delicious salads, big enough to share, and thin crust pizza.
Ella’s Pizza – Metro Center
Pizza that tastes “just okay”, with gluten free beers and appetizers.

Pizza that tastes like heaven, with a great atmosphere, gf beers, and quality ingredients.
Pulpo – Cleveland Park
Gluten free eggs benedict (served on rice) and great brunch.
Red Velvet Cupcakery – Chinatown
Best and most chocolatey cupcake I’ve ever eaten.
Ripple – Cleveland Park
Almost all of the menu is gluten free – including the french fries and soft shell crab. Plus a great offering of $6 glasses of wine.

Massive chocolate chip cookies full of brown sugar, wraps, sandwiches, and pancakes on the weekends.
