The Coven, located in dowtown historic Salem, MA offers innovative sandwiches in a cozy space with kitschy decor. It’s a cafe and dessert bar with gluten-free choices!
Bread and sweets are brought in from the dedicated gluten-free bakery Glutenus Minimus and include Brioche bread, Carrot Cake cupcakes, White Chocolate bars, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars, Apple Cider Donut Muffins and a variety of cookies. All of these treats are kept in their own enclosed gluten-free case!
The variety of lunch and breakfast sandwiches is almost overwhelming yet also entertaining. With such names as Farrah Fawcett, Fraggle Rock or the Ricky Ricardo, ordering a sandwich can become a nostalgic event. On our visit we ordered the She-Ra which combined roasted turkey, avocado, bacon and a balsamic onion jam. It was a heavenly combination. We also brought home a cupcake, Pumpkin Bar and Brownie, which pleased everybody!
Soups are made daily and, at times, are gluten-free. Some of these include the Tomato Zucchini Soup, Tuscan White Bean Soup with Spinach, and the Tomato Spinach Florentine Soup. These soups are also dairy-free and vegan!
Breakfast and brunch items are served 7 days per week.
This place is great for take-out too, or enjoy your meal by one of the (few) window front tables. Couches and tables are also situated for playing board games. Local, free delivery available!
They also sell market items such as locally sourced and organic products as well as gluten-free bread crumbs, pasta and mixes.
