About Us
Dining away from home can be a challenge for those managing food allergies and intolerances or special dietary needs. As a registered dietitian, as well as a mother of children with food allergies, I am always on the lookout for a safe place to eat. This site came about due to the necessity of finding restaurants receptive to serving customers with food allergies and special dietary concerns. Our goal is to increase the awareness within the restaurant community so that we may once again experience the freedom to dine away from home.

This site is to be used as a reliable guide. It does not guarantee a safe dining experience. Chefs, menus and policies change regularly. Verify all information for yourself.

Veggie Planet

At Veggie Planet all menu items are vegetarian, almost all can be made vegan, and many are gluten-free!  Located in Harvard Square, they are proud members of Cambridge Local First which enables them to network and procure supplies from other local businesses.  There is not a specific gluten-free menu but I was told that the entrees are gluten-free (over 10 to choose from!) and can be served with brown or coconut rice (the pizza crust option is NOT gluten-free).  I’d love to try the Henry’s Lunch/Dinner which is a mixture of roasted butternut squash, carmelized onions, rosemary and sage, goat cheese and asiago cheese.  Any item can be made vegan (dairy-free) by switching out the cheese for Teese brand soy cheese or their homemade tofu-basil mash.  The salads are also gluten-free as well as all of the dressings. Vanilla, mint-chip or soy vanilla ice cream is available for dessert.  After 5 pm “smaller bites” are available such as the gluten-free Seasonal Crudite which is an assortment of seasonal raw vegetables served with a choice of dips.  Wine (the beer is NOT gluten-free) is offered evenings and weekends and each night the restaurant is transformed into Club Passim with live entertainment!
