At Grilled Cheese DC gluten-free options achieve the trifecta: delicious, safely made, and worth going back for seconds. Sandwiches are made with bread from local producer Goldilocks Goodies, sliced thick to support all of the tasty fillings inside. Gluten-free preparation already appears to be a well-oiled process, as sandwich makers automatically change gloves before handling bread and prepare each sandwich on a separate tray. Of course, it’s always important to ask about gluten-free preparation and confirm your needs with the staff when placing your order.

  1. My husband and I are often in DC. The last time we went, we hit up Wicked Waffle for gluten-free waffle sandwiches, but I am MUCH more partial to grilled cheese. We’ll have to keep this place in mind for our next DC trip. Thanks for the tip!

    1. Thanks for reading, Kelly! GCDC has kept their GF sandwiches quiet for some reason, as if they don’t know how hungry the GF crowd is for a good grilled cheese. Hope you love it!
