Good News for Gluten Free Chicago Loopers!

Earlier this morning I received La Voce, the Caffé Baci newsletter, and was thrilled to see this little tidbit:

What's Cookin'?

Look for the following exciting changes to Baci's menu - COMING SOON!

Gluten Free: we’re pleased to announce our first foray into gluten-free pasta! Look for this healthy new addition soon.

Scones: our esteemed pastry chef has been hard at work developing the “perfect” scone in several varieties.

Gelato: you’ll think you just stepped onto the Via Veneto after tasting our new gelato - made in-house - that rivals any in Italy!

Gluten free pasta AND gelato?! OMG...I WILL eat Italian and dream Italian! I'm a big fan of Caffé Baci (their salads are delicious) and cannot wait until the GF pasta hits! Woo hoo!

Caffé Baci has five locations in downtown Chicago, but don't worry if you don't work downtown during the week. When you're in the city on the weekend visiting the Art Institute or Millennium Park, there are Baci locations right across the street on Michigan Ave.

This is great news - thanks for posting, Betsy! Our office gets catering from Baci for tons of meetings, and I'm glad to know I could order GF pasta!

Hannahs Bretzel is is another gluten free place I recently found in the loop! Their sandwiches look amazing and they prioritize the environment by using sustainable matierials and organic ingredients. Yumm!
