If a sign reads "gluten-free," it's safe to assume that someone is either selling gluten for zero nickels or celebrating the delayed emancipation of the lone citizen in the land of Glute. Viva la evolution of eating with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of baked goods at Tu-Lu's Gluten-Free Bakery, located in the East Village.
Gluten-intolerant dessert connoisseur Tully navigates dietary obstacles with Tu-Lu's Gluten-Free Bakery’s dazzling menu of morsels. The confectioner's cases are sprinkled with sweet standbys, including cupcakes ($3.15), cookies ($2.20), and muffins ($2.75) in varieties including raspberry-almond crumble and white-cheddar-jalapeño corn muffins. Each day's batches bring surprises, such as individual coffee cakes ($3.95), carrot morning glory loaf ($3.65), and elopements by love-struck cookie sheets. Sweet-seekers can also fill up on agave-infused treats, such as vegan brownies ($2.95) and cinnamon granola with almonds and cranberries ($8.25), before moving on to a savory bag of homemade croutons ($7). With iced or hot coffees ($2–$2.50), wash down culinary cargo and half-formed sentences not quite ready to be spoken.
