Pete's Frootique opens Gluten Free Eatery & CoffeeBar

Pete’s Frootique (1515 Dresden Row, 425-5700) has opened its new Gluten Free Eatery & CoffeeBar. Because the store can be a hectic spot, Pete’s acknowledges the risk of cross-contamination of food, something sufferers of celiac disease may find worrisome. That’s why the eatery operates as a separate entity, close but away from the bustle of the shop floor during meal hours. Just a short trip up the escalators towards the Dresden Row Market, you can enjoy the coffee bar’s modest but tasty 100 percent gluten-free menu, all prepared in a gluten-free kitchen. The restaurant uses local favourites Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet and Odell’s Gluten Free products to offer three types of sandwiches, as well as salads, soups and pastries. Pete’s operations manager Holly Chmelyk says her menu favourites are the pear and pecan salad and the chicken avocado sandwich made with potato millet bread.
