The Best Gluten Free Breakfasts in Carmel Indiana
Cafe Patachou in Carmel, Indiana
Cafe Patachou has 2 locations in Carmel! (and a couple others just outside Hamilton County) What makes them so special is they serve Native Bread. This bread is made locally in the area! It’s gluten free, doesn’t fall apart, thick and tasty! They will make cinnamon toast on Native Bread for you at Cafe Patachou!
They understand food allergies/sensitivities and your food comes out marked with a red flag to designate allergies. My favorite item is their Vegan Chickpea Crepe!
It’s a hot spot for the locals and often busy! Try to be on the later or earlier side of popular meal times.

Rize is another great breakfast spot if you’re looking for gluten free restaurants in Carmel, Indiana. They have fresh squeezed OJ, delicious coffee options, build your own omelet’s, breakfast sandwiches on gf bread and a delicious avocado toast.

Bru Burger Bar – Carmel, Noblesbille
Bruburger has several locations around Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio which offer gluten free buns, vegan cheese and the Carmel location has safe fries! (Not all their locations have safe fries due to kitchen space so ask at each location)
I typically build my own burger (adding some peppadew jam) or have the Valencia salad. I’m also dairy free so I ask to swap out the cheese for the vegan cheese.
Check out the Bru Burger Gluten Free Menu here.
Divvy Carmel, Indiana
Divvy is one of my newest favorites! I’m not a vegetarian or vegan but I always get their vegetarian board because you won’t find a single “boring vegetable” on the plate! It comes with Buffalo style spicy cauliflower (not too spicy), delicious glazed brussel sprouts, cashew cheese with gluten free pita bread. The whole board is gluten free!
Divvy also has delicious drinks and cocktails and let’s not forget about gluten and dairy free desserts that aren’t just a fruit cup!
Field Brewing in Westfield
I can’t let you go without sharing what’s booming in Westfield!
Check out Field Brewing for some delicious farm to table style with gluten free options! The owner’s wife is a dietitian so you get fresh and healthy meals! The menu item’s change from time to time but the times I have been, the fries have been safe. I’ve also had a delicious egg sandwich on the Native bread. They have an outdoor patio with a kid friendly space.
Rail Cafe with Cone + Crumb in Westfield
Find Rail in Westfield, which has combined Cone and Crumb with some fresh lunch and dinner options! The Cone and Crumb side has ice cream with a few gluten free flavors, plus a dairy free ice cream that rotates in flavor and is gluten free. They also serve a gluten free waffle cone.
On my most recent visit the cashier excitedly told me the extra care they provide if you have celiac! This includes sanitizing and cleaning a special prep area when you order food.
My favorite part is the dairy free ice cream comes in fun flavors you don’t find in many places!
