Corner Bakery is a tricky one for us gluten-free folks. So what is so tricky about the Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu? Well, they don’t really have one.
When I went to order at Corner Bakery I asked if I could see their gluten free menu. This is what they handed to me:
The menu is from 2010 and it’s 2014. I hope they update it soon. having that said, here is what they have that is gluten free:
Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu -
- Fruit Medley Salad
- Breakfast Potatoes
- All American Scrambler with Egg Whites – No Toast
- Anaheim Scrambler with Egg Whites – No Toast
- Farmers Scrambler w Egg Whites – No Toast
- Oatmeal without Sweet Crisp – Any toppings are good
- Swiss Oatmeal without Sweet Crisp
- Three Lentil Vegetable
- Chicken Tortilla
Lunch / Dinner:
- Chopped Salad
- Santa Fe Ranch Salad
- Mixed Greens Salad
- Tuna Salad
- Greek Vegetable Salad
- DC Chicken Salad
- Ceasar Salad – no croutons
- Roasted Potato Salad
I ordered a cup of the chicken tortilla soup and a chopped salad. Both were good. The one thing I will note is that everything at Corner Bakery comes with a side of bread. I specifically ordered no bread, but I received a piece of bread on top of my salad when it arrived. Make sure you are extremely explicit about this when ordering.
Because Corner Bakery is a bakery with lots of baked goods, there is a high risk for cross contamination here. The location I went to even had staff that admitted this. So, if you are celiac or someone with extreme gluten sensitivity you might want to think twice before eating here.
The other thing about the menu I was unclear on is why the eggs aren’t gluten free but egg whites are. They may use flour in their batter to make the eggs fluffier. I have yet to confirm this. If you are reading this and know, please post in the comments.
Overall, Corner Bakery is not the easiest place to find gluten-free foods but they still have a gluten free menu you can look at and you should be able to grab a salad or soup or egg white dish that will be a good choice.
