Gluten Free Washington, DC

The awesome US Capitol

Who are you and where are you?
Hi! My name is Anna and I live in Washington, D.C.

Tell me about your relationship with gluten..
11 years and going strong. I went “cold turkey” and never looked back.

Why should gluten free travellers visit your town?
Washington DC is the heart and soul of American politics. There are so many (free!) things to do here, and there are tons of restaurants that accommodate the gluten free diet.

Tell me something fun about your town..
There are so many museums here. The Smithsonians are all free, you can take a tour of the Capitol, go to the zoo, see plays, listen to music at the Kennedy Center, shop in Georgetown, rent bikes to tour the city, explore historical Alexandria, and so much more. My favorite museum of all time is the Newseum.

The White House!


Where is your favourite place to eat out in your town and why?
We have so many places to chose from! Oyamel is so much fun for trying Mexican “street food” and they are very accommodating to those of us on a gluten free diet. I also love Bus Boys & Poets, Rosa Mexicana, Ella’s pizza grill, Jaleo for tappas, Roti for quick Greek food, and Protein Bar for lunch. I think the best gluten free cupcakes are Red Velvet or Hello Cupcake.

Do you live in Washington DC or have you travelled there? Where is your favourite place to eat gluten free?

  • Love this! Just finished a weekend in DC and manages to hit Rosa Mexicano, Busboys & Poets and Ella’s pizza! All were great and I especially lived the fried chicken at Busboys made with cornmeal. Bummed I missed the cupcakes though…

  • Have you tried the Happy Tart in Del Ray? Its a GF bakery – the cupcakes are fabulous. Better than Red Velvet’s and I LOVE red velvet’s GF cupcake.

  • My brother and I tried the somewhat off-the-beaten-path Ghana Cafe and loved it! Here’s my review. Thanks again for your suggestions. 🙂
