Dose Coffee and Tea offers delicious house baked gluten-free coffee cakes, muffins and bars.

Just because you are averse to gluten, doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a delightful snack along with your cuppa.  Here are some of our favorite coffee shops with a good selection of gluten-free goodies. 

With three full-service locations in 12 South, Franklin and Downtown Nashville plus their own bakery and a limited menu at Grimey’s II on 8th Avenue, Frothy Monkey offers plenty of spots for good food and drink from breakfast until dinner. Gluten-free options include a popular low sugar cookie plus muffins and bread that can be substituted for any of their sandwich or bagel items.

Sylvan Park residents depend on Dose for their daily...err...dose of caffeine in addition to a rotating selection of baked goods made in-house each day. You can always expect several gluten-free options on the daily menu.

Eighth and Roast outsources most of their gluten-free food options, but that’s ok because their specialty suppliers concentrate on delicious gluten-free desserts.  Vegan Vee provides the doughnuts and Gretchen's Gluten Free Goodies bakes up a wide variety of treats for Eighth and Roast customers.
