As many of you know, eating out can be a tremendous challenge to those with Celiac Disease. I’m not asking for a pity party. It’s just an “is.”
But that hasn’t stopped me from touring Milwaukee’s dining scene. I keep an eye out for new places that pop up, or old favorites that start accommodating the gluten free crowd. And I’m blessed with friends and family who are always on the lookout for new places to try out.
So, I was thrilled after receiving a text recently that said- New deli. gf. Bay view. Nice!
I put it on my list of places to check out. Last weekend I found myself out and about and very hungry. (story of my life) I took a detour to the Bay View area to check out Cafe Tarragon.
It’s a new café that opened up in the Future Green store @ 2352 S. Kinnickinnic Ave in the Bay View neighborhood.
98% of their menu is gluten free. (they do offer a regular Italian bread for gluten eaters) You can build your own Panini (which I did, pictured above) or go for a tasty salad. They also have other sides available in the display case. Including bakery items!
Their slogan, “Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw and Gluten Free…Unite!”
My Panini was delicious, and a little messy. Perfect. I topped mine with Portobello mushrooms, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil spread, red pepper and spinach. Served with a homemade pickle and your choice of a side, I went with the coleslaw, but they also had sweet potato salad. And chips of course. A nice mix of three different gf chips.
Cassie (chef) and Lisa (one of the owners) were open and friendly and welcomed all others on the gf diet. They are just getting started, but are on the right track!
