That is - until I stumbled upon Wild Wood Bakehouse and their Sunday all-you-care-to-enjoy brunch. They are a 100% gluten-free cafe and bakery in Austin, TX, so no one has to worry about cross contamination. They also offer some dairy-free and egg-free options as well.
Their fluffy waffles are made fresh, one at a time. The light, airy French toast was so good that the gluten eater with me couldn’t tell the difference The carnita meat had clearly been braised in spices for a good long time – I was impressed with the burst of flavor. Despite my dairy intolerances, I had to try a little of the Mac & Cheese with the large round noodles and it was well worth any discomfort later.
And the fried chicken - please just do yourself a favor and GO... NOW! Run, don't walk!
There are brunch standards of bacon, scrambled eggs, veggie medley, rice pilaf, fresh fruit, and black beans. The meal includes a mimosa, orange juice, or sweet tea and the service is very friendly and simple – help yourself!
