And there are some great Tarpon Springs restaurants that offer gluten-free options.

Historically, Tarpon Springs was founded on the sponge industry and you can still watch the sponge fishermen at the docks and buy the natural sponges in Downtown Tarpon Springs.

Eco Bean Coffee

While most of the restaurants on this list are Tarpon Springs Greek restaurants, this amazing coffee shop, Eco Bean, deserves to be placed first on my list of Tarpon Springs restaurants! 

Eco Bean is 100% gluten-free.  And they have MUCH more than coffee.

Eco Bean’s menu boasts many options for light breakfast and lunch fare, as well as a juice bar, delicious baked goods, and hand-crafted energy balls & candies.  And yes, all gluten-free. See their menu here.

note: their vegan options are EXTENSIVE.

I tried their café mocha, iced coffee with almond milk, banana bread, and a peanut butter cup. 

This is a MUST visit place in Tarpon Springs.  Plus, I love supporting 100% gluten-free eateries!

Hellas Tarpon Springs

Hellas is probably one of the most popular and best restaurants in Tarpon Springs.  Despite not having a separate gluten-free menu, they DO have quite a few items on their regular menu, such as the chicken kabobs, that are naturally gluten-free.

In addition, waitstaff are trained on which items are appropriate for those with food allergies & sensitivities and the kitchen does guard against cross-contamination.

View Hellas Tarpon Springs menu here and contact them to discuss gluten-free options.

Spirou’s Cookhouse

This diner is not something to miss among all the restaurants in Tarpon Springs, especially if you’re gluten-free!

Not only can you eat their massive Greek salad, but they do have many other options including gluten-free bread for their sandwiches.

I tried their Greek salad with grilled chicken and the Rueben sandwich on gluten-free bread.  Both were delicious!
