It’s an awesome time to be on a high-gluten diet. (It’s also a great time to be gluten-free, but I’ll leave that celebration to someone who actually is.) Recently, Starbucks turned every one of its 430 (!) San Francisco locations into a mini bakery when it introduced La Boulange breads and pastries like open-face ham and cheese croissants and mini chocolate marble loaf cakes to its stores.
Those products haven’t hit my local Starbucks yet (they arrive in New York in September), but here are nine great new places for me to get my gluten fix on, plus one where I can experiment with a gluten-free diet.
