Waffles & Wedges in Center City Philadelphia (1500 Pine St., 215-309-3222). As the name suggests, the menu will be comprised of "Liège" Belgian-style waffles (the gluten-free versions will be made on a dedicated iron) and baked potato "fries" (all gluten free). Many of the sauces and toppings don't contain gluten either.
Opening this summer in Wynnewood is a second area b.good (280 E. Lancaster Ave.). Ninety-five percent of the menu at this healthier fast-casual restaurant chain - another location is in Marlton - is gluten free, including Udi's buns, all fries and several desserts.

We recently sampled both of the all-natural bagel sandwiches and were suitably impressed. If you have the luxury of time, you can heat them in the oven, but we opted for the microwave at a minute and 20 seconds. The savory meats blended nicely with the mildness of the cheese and egg. The bagel was spongy, but that's to be expected from microwave preparation.
The bagel sandwiches can be ordered from Sweet Christine's, which offers nationwide shipping. Both the bagel and bialy sandwiches are also sold in larger quantities from Start Healthy.
