Sassy Spoon (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

    So when a restaurant is 100% gluten you don’t have to go through the 100 questions game. You can sit back and just enjoy the experience. Now add that the food and folks working at the restaurant are awesome and you have a place you want to go back to over and over.

    I brought a visiting relative (who also has Celiac, but being German I think it is called Zöliakie….but I digress). He was so amazed with the Sassy Spoon that he asked if we could comeback before he left (it was a weekend stay). He does not have anything like it in Germany. I also have brought folks that do not have a restricted diet and they loved the food too. My wife thinks the food may be a little too fancy for her, so if you are looking for bar food, it may not be your cup of tea. The owner has a background in nutrition and has a way with creating healthy (soul and body) super tasty plates. I’m not sure if we can post websites on the forum, so look up Sassy Spoon (Minneapolis, Minnesota) and give it a go. Cheers!

    That should read ,”So when a restaurant is 100% gluten FREE you don’t have to go through the 100 questions game”. Apparently I need to wear my cheaters all the time now. You might ask, well why not just edit it…believe me I’m trying. I did an edit yesterday, but I’m having an issue figuring out how to edit it today. Sometimes I’m not the brightest when I can’t find the light switch.

      You know what’s funny? I read your first post as “100% gluten free” … funny how the mind can fill in when reading. Anyway, wanted to thank you for the post about this restaurant. I will be visiting a friend who lives near Minneapolis in the near future, and she doesn’t understand this disease at all, so being able to go to a 100% gf restaurant with her will take away any need to go into explanations with her. We have not seen each other since high school (a VERY long time ago), so being able to just enjoy dinner out together will be such a blessing!

        Hello Deebee1, Make sure to check their website for hours that they are open as they are some what limited (but expanding). I just tried Sassy Spoons yucca crust pizza last week. It was awesome and had a perfect crunch. Have fun catching up with your friend and enjoy!

    Do you have any other restaurant recommendations in the Twin Cities? I was diagnosed this summer and eating out is the most scary part for me. I would love to hear if there are additional places where you feel comfortable eating. Thanks!

      Hello Corrieo,

      Here is a short list to get you started, there are more out there. I usual go to sassy spoon because I love their food.

      Always do your due diligence and ask the questions you need to to eat safely. Try to avoid going during busy times. Remember it’s your health, you are your best advocate.

      My experience is these restaurants seem to understand. Just let them know you need to eat GF for health reasons and they will prepare it safely.
      Foxy Falafel (St Paul)
      Brasa (St Paul and Mpls)
      Big Bowl (Roseville)
      Mad Jacks (Vadnais Heights)
      Crazy Puppy Goumet workshop (100% GF food truck)

      Feel free to contact me if you need advice. Let me know if you need someone to walk you through a grocery store or where I find GF products in the Twin Cities.

        Thanks so much. That’s really helpful. I have done a ton of reading and think I’ve got the grocery store thing figured out. It’s just restaurants that I’m finding challenging. Its hard to feel safe.
