Despite that loss, Collingswood continues to be a bastion of gluten-free-friendly businesses. Sweet Freedom Bakery is planning a mid-November opening at 577 Haddon Ave., and El Sitio Grill & Cafe (729 Haddon Ave., 856-240-1217) can accommodate guests looking for South American cuisine. The kitchen maintains a dedicated fryer for appetizers like empanadas and plaintains, and the menu also includes salads and grilled meats.
Northern Liberties' vegan-friendly Soy Cafe (630 N. 2nd St., 215-922-1003) has gluten-free wraps, soups, smoothies and salads.
Rittenhouse Square New American restaurant REX 1516 (1516 South St., 267-319-1366) has just updated its gluten-free menu for the season. The kitchen's juicy burger remains on the menu, which also features a sweet potato panna cotta for dessert. (Read my review here.)
Eatery on Main Cafe in North Wales (104 S. Main St., 215-699-8097) can prepare gluten-free breakfast and lunch wraps and sandwiches.
Also in North Wales, Wegmans will open its newest Philadelphia-area market on Sunday (500 Montgomery Mall, 267-677-0700).
I reviewed southern New Jersey's only all-gluten-free bakery and cafe, WildFlour in Lawrenceville, in Tuesday's post.
Mi-Del's limited-edition Candy Cane sandwich creme cookies are making their way to supermarkets now in time for the holiday season.
Look for Post's limited-edition Sugar Cookie flavor Pebbles cereal, which is gluten free.
The Celiac Center at Paoli Hospital (255 W. Lancaster Ave.) is hosting a free class, "Living Gluten Free," on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. Online registration is available.
Have a great weekend!
