Yonge & Eglinton, though sometimes a little heavy on the construction (hey, we’re getting that new line eventually!), is actually an amazing area of Toronto to find gluten-free restaurants!
From fancy, dine-in spots to quick n’ easy gluten-free takeout, if you frequently find yourself in the Yonge and Eglinton area you’ve got plenty of gluten-free food options to choose from – most of which are just a short walk from Eglinton subway station!
Whether you’re a full-on vegan or a die-hard meat lover, Yonge and Eglinton has so many incredible gluten-free options to explore!
Kupfert & Kim
No gluten-free list is complete without mentioning Kupfert & Kim, a 100% gluten-free and vegan chain with multiple locations throughout Toronto. Kupfert & Kim really go hard when it comes to ensuring their ingredients are gluten-free, specifically sourcing their oats and tamari (often contaminated with gluten) from certified gluten-free distributors!
Located at 2313 Yonge Street, just a short walk north of Yonge & Eglinton, Kupfert & Kim’s healthy options will make you feel good about eating there…even if it’s multiple times a week!
Check out some of their burgers if you’re looking for something a little heftier like the Tahini Burger or the Guac Burger. If you want something a little lighter, they’ve got plenty of delicious bowls and salads that will satisfy your taste buds without feeling too heavy in your stomach!
It makes sense that Burger Tree is next on our list considering they share an address with Kupfert & Kim at 2313 Yonge Street! Don’t be confused – they are actually located inside of the Kupfet & Kim – like a sneaky little gluten-free secret for those of us who want to be a little more indulgent!
There are some similarities between Burger Tree & their sister Kupfert & Kim, for one, they also happen to be 100% plant-based and gluten-free! But, their menu does look a little different!
At Burger Tree you’re going to find diner-inspired classics; burgers, fries, crispy “chick’n”, waffles, “cheez” fries…
Seriously, this menu is insanely mouth-watering! They even have some amazing shakes to choose from to complement the classic diner vibe: from Salted Caramel to Milk N’ Cookies, all shakes are made with vegan dairy options!
From their nachos to their Bahn Mi fries, this is a gluten-free spot in Toronto not to be missed!
The Burger’s Priest
The Burger’s Priest is one of the best burger spots in the Yonge & Eglinton area. They’re located right on the north-west corner of Yonge & Eglinton – you can’t miss them!
They offer gluten-free buns (which, don’t fall apart by the way!) and several of their burger options are gluten-free. Even their vegetarian burger option is gluten-free!
As always though, we recommend being cautious when ordering gluten-free at fast food spots due to the risk of cross-contamination.
Salus Fresh Foods
Salus Fresh Foods are another great option if you’re looking for some healthy, gluten-free options in the Yonge and Eglinton area. They’re located right by The Burger’s Priest and a quick walk from Eglinton subway station.
We love Salus because they have so many options for customization, allowing you to ensure everything that goes into your meal is gluten-free and safe for you to eat!
From salads, to grain boxes, to smoothie bowls, Salus Fresh Foods at Yonge and Eglinton has gluten-free options that will leave you feeling satisfied and healthy!
The Keg Steakhouse
If you’re looking for a slightly heavier meal, in a nice, dine-in environment, The Keg Steakhouse at Yonge & Eglinton is the perfect option! Located at 2201 Yonge Street, just a short walk south of Eglinton, the Keg Steakhouse has plenty of gluten-free options for you to enjoy.
The Keg’s variety of gluten-free options are quite impressive, from appetizers (shrimp cocktail, cobb salad…), to classics (top sirloin, filet mignon), to sides (garlic mashed potatoes…) there are numerous gluten-free options to choose from.
You can even enjoy a gluten-free crème brûlée if you still have room for dessert!
