I had breakfast again with some Celiac friends - this time at the Rutherford Pancake House (40 Park Avenue, Rutherford, NJ 07070 - open for breakfast and lunch daily, open for dinner Thursday - Saturday). The restaurant is a large storefront on Park Ave and the menu is a dream for anyone who is gluten free, dairy free, vegan or any combination thereof!
|Gluten Free / Dairy Free / Vegan Belgian Waffle |
(w/ Home Fries at Rutherford Pancake House)
The menu over all is quite extensive - gluten free pancakes and waffles, quesadillas (with Daiya cheese if you need dairy free/vegan), pizza (again Daiya available), turkey sausage (I can't be the only person in the world who can't digest pork), lots of vegetarian and vegan options, soups, and my favorite: gluten free french fries (fried in a dedicated fryer)! [Since it was 8am and there were home fries available, it seemed wrong to order french fries but I was tempted.] With so many options I didn't get to try this time, I'm looking forward to going back.
I do recommend getting there early however as they can get quite busy!
Update 5/31/12 - Open daily for breakfast and lunch. Open for dinner Thursday - Saturday.
