restaurants with Gluten-Free items


Amerigo

If you’re craving Italian, Amerigo has a separate gluten-free menu so you can enjoy your entire meal—it’s full of appetizers, pastas and desserts.

See the menu.


Avo

The bulk of this plant-based and certified kosher menu is gluten-free. Try the pad thai (with kelp noodles), smashed avocado toast (on GF bread) or squash quinoa bowl.

See the menu.


Coco Greens

Highlights from this full-service wellness shop’s vegan cafe include mac ’n’ squash and mushroom alfredo, both made with rice pasta.

See the menu.


EIO & the Hive

At the acronym-loving EIO, everything is organic…and many things are gluten-free. A sampling: the quinoa frittata, the cauliflower hash and the Bell’s Bend burger.

See the menu.


Fido

Come to Hillsboro Village hungry, leave full of gluten-free sourdough French toast, buckwheat pancakes or any of the sandwiches served on GF bread (for an additional $1.50).

See the menu.


Farm Burger

At this farm-to-table joint, you can build your own gluten-free burger with a Mountain Farm bun (for an additional $1.35) plus a zillion delicious toppings.

See the menu.


Germantown Cafe

Many menu items here either come gluten-free (like the meatloaf and meatballs) or can be modified upon request (like the roasted chicken and black bean quinoa cakes).

See the menu.


Kayne Prime

Kayne Prime is one of Nashville’s most popular steakhouses, but they are also know for tasty starters (like cold water oysters), greens (like black kale and shishito peppers), and market-fresh options (like Scottish salmon and snapper).

See the menu. 


Local Taco

Both local outposts of this friendly chain—there’s one in East Nashville and one in Sylvan Park—offer tacos with gluten-free corn tortillas.

See the menu.


Little Mosco’s

This luncheonette’s menu changes weekly but always involves gluten-free variations. (You can, as owners Lauren Moskovitz and Alex Grainger call it, “GF yourself” for an additional $1.50.)

See the menu.


Little Octopus

Gluten-free options at this standout Gulch eatery range from eggs Benedict with pork to lentil bowls to cornbread made with plantains.

See the menu.


Mafiaoza’s

Order a 14-inch gluten-free pizza and stack it with toppings like basil, artichokes or Spanish chorizo.

See the menu.


Mangia Nashville

Pretty much everything here—starters, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, desserts—can be made gluten-free for an extra fee.

See the menu.


Margaritaville

If you find yourself hungry and on Broadway, don’t panic. Margaritaville’s burgers are available on a gluten-free bun, and modifications can be made to most of the salads and entrees.

See the menu.


Mellow Mushroom

Transform any pie by selecting the 10-inch gluten-free crust, available at both the Broadway and Vanderbilt locations.

See the menu.


Pfunky Griddle

The Griddle’s main attraction—pancakes with a glorious selection of toppings like fruit, Nutella and Reese’s Pieces—can be served gluten-free, as can its French and regular toasts.

See the menu.


Porta Via Ristorante e Bar

Substitute gluten-free bucatini (for an additional $3) in any pasta entree, or create your own pizza with gluten-free crust (also an additional $3).

See the menu.


The Post East

Gluten-free items abound at this cozy East Nashville spot. Treat yourself to the vegan waffles with berries or the buttermilk biscuit topped with vegetarian pecan sausage, egg and cheese.

See the menu.


Red Bicycle

The Germantown location’s impressive roster of crepes—from barbecue chicken to banana peanut to egg-and-cheese—can be made gluten-free for an additional 75 cents each.

See the menu.


Sunflower Cafe

It’ll take you a long time to taste-test every gluten-free item at this vegetarian cafe. Choose from entree salads, quinoa and rice bowls, and wraps and veggie burgers served on either a housemade vegan bun (for an additional $1.25) or a brown rice wrap (for an additional 75 cents). Round out your meal with a gluten-free side like sweet potato casserole or curried chickpea salad.

See the menu.


Tavern

This ultra-popular spot in Midtown is known for their top-notch brunch offerings, as well as menu items like their Tuscan kale and parmesan salad, tacos de casa on corn tortillas, and “Bazooka” guacamole. For heftier options, try the Tavern Burger without a bun or steak and eggs.

See the menu.  


Two Boots

Your best bet for pizza in Midtown is at Two Boots, which offers gluten-free crusts for its small and medium pies (add $2 and $3.50, respectively). Non-dairy cheese is also available here, FYI.

See the menu.


Union Common

This restaurant singles out its gluten-free items—which include wild boar sausage, chicken confit and steak frites—and encourages diners to share.

See the menu.


Vegan Vee

Go ahead and order anything here—from muffins to cupcakes to donuts, the entire menu at this takeout vegan bakery is gluten-free. (It’s only open Friday through Sunday, but you can also find Vegan Vee goodies at The Produce Place, Thistle Stop Cafe and Wild Cow.)

See the menu.


Whiskey Kitchen

Make your way to Whiskey Kitchen for elevated pub grub and modern American cuisine. The WK Edamame, WK House Wedge, and fire-roasted salmon always deliver a flavorful punch, but you really can’t go wrong here.

See the menu. 


Wild Cow

Naturally gluten-free items—like tacos and wraps made with corn tortillas—are noted on this vegetarian restaurant’s menu, but make a point to address gluten allergies with your server to avoid potential cross-contamination.

See the menu.


Wild Eggs

Gluten-free eaters, Wild Eggs has a whole GF menu ready for you. Take your pick from frittatas, omelets, pancakes, French toast, sandwiches and much more.

See the menu.


The Wild Muffin

This dedicated gluten-free (and peanut-free) bakery doesn’t disappoint. Muffins, cookies, brownies, breads—you name it, they make it GF.

See the menu.
