Over the last 5 years, there have been increased diagnoses of celiac disease; the number of you, our customers, who are looking for quality gluten-free dining options has increased as a result. We get it. Finding gluten-free items at restaurants is tricky. Many restaurants compromise quality or price when adding gluten-free items to their menu.
At Spoons, we will always be happy to cater to dietary needs and provide gluten-free options for our customers. And not only that, but we ensure our classic and homestyle recipes will create a satisfying menu, even for the gluten-free eater. This month is Gluten-Free Awareness Month and we want to give you a glimpse into what we do at Spoons to make sure the gluten-free food you order is truly gluten-free.
Our founding chef, Tom Stoner, is a former Five-Star Chef who works hard to provide you with many delicious options from our menu. From our Apple Poppyseed Salad, to our Chicken Sweet Potato Stew, you are guaranteed to find gluten-free soups, salads, and the option to make any of our sandwiches on gluten-free bread.
Our team is committed to provide natural and fresh ingredients and to remain transparent with customers about the ingredients included in each menu item. We pride ourselves in being transparent with nutritional information and ingredients because frankly, we have nothing to hide. All of our menu items are made with the freshest seasonal ingredients from local growers, ensuring you the best quality from preparation to presentation.
Our owners have always cared about putting in the extra work to serve the best menu to our customers. Several years ago, our team at Spoons worked with one of the leading soup production companies in the country to create a soup base that was gluten-free. In a way, Spoons was the guinea pig for some of the gluten-free soup base products and over a few years the gluten-free bases were reviewed and revised until perfected for customers.
Over the last 13 years, Spoons has grown from the strength and support of our community and it is with great gratitude that we serve you through knowing you and accommodating for various dietary needs.
When new team members are hired we train them how to carefully handle gluten-free requests. We ensure they know the safety protocol to wear new gloves and use separate utensils to ensure what you order remains truly gluten-free. It is also important for our team members to understand that a gluten-free sandwich cannot be cooked in the oven with a regular sandwich. This means the sandwiches have to be cooked separately, which may add a couple minutes to production, but fully ensures you get the food you ordered.
You deserve to know both where your food comes from and how it was made. We want you to know that you’re not an inconvenience, you are our family. We have worked hard for the last several years to bring you more options of quality food so you can enjoy our classic and homestyle recipes with full satisfaction.
