Rose’s Wheat-Free Bakery and Café delights patrons with distinctive dietary requirements by whipping up an array of gluten-, allergen- and dairy-free noshes forged from organic, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. A mouthwatering café menu complements a bevy of baked goods, and many of the toothsome noshes also cater to vegan and sugar-free needs. A gluten-free french-bread loaf renders mouths speechless with its soft gallic crust and its ability to quote Voltaire ($10), or teeth can mine through the gluten- and sugar-free double-chocolate cookies ($7.95 for six) sweetened with agave nectar to uncover precious dark- and white-chocolate nuggets burrowed within.
Chefs cloak rice noodles in cheddar and soft goat-cheese sauce while assembling the mac ‘n’ cheese entree ($8) that transports mouths back to a simpler time when blanket-fort construction was at its zenith. Thin crust pizza is made to order ($11 for a 9”; $14 for a 14”), and diners can opt to accessorize their circular comestibles with a bevy of toppings ($1.50–$3.50), such as grilled pineapple, avocado, chicken, and bacon.
Rose's Wheat-Free Bakery & Cafe
Rose’s Wheat-Free Bakery & Cafe was founded on the principle that dietary restrictions shouldn’t get in the way of enjoying the finer things in life—namely cakes, cookies, sandwiches, and pizza. Every pastry and lunch item on the café’s menu is completely gluten-free, and the bakers also go out of the way to use organic butter, eggs, and tapioca flour when crafting their recipes.
Wheat allergies don’t take time off, and neither does Rose’s. The café and bakery is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. Even if you can’t make it up to the small Evanston bakery, there’s a good chance you’ll find some of their goodies elsewhere. They’re carried in many restaurants and gourmet food stores in the Chicago area, including Whole Foods and Café Ba-ba-Reeba.
