Wild Wood Art Cafe

Yesterday for lunch I decided to try Wild Wood Art Cafe, a local gluten free bakery! While we will be trying out different recipes for making our own gluten free bread (though my wife will probably do more of the experimenting than I will), I love living in a city that has an eclectic art gallery/gluten free cafe combination.

I decided to get the hot roast beef and cheddar sandwich on their whole grain bun. (They had had a refrigerator go out, so cheddar was the only cheese they had at the time.) The sandwich was absolutely delicious and the whole grain bread had a delightful nutty flavor and great texture. The tortilla chips were a bit stale (minor quibble) but I ate them anyway because the salsa was quite good. While I was waiting for my order, I read a story clipped from the local paper about the owner and the gluten free ding dong alternative she had created. I saw them in the display and will have to try one on a later date.

I also bought a loaf of their basic brown rice flour bread and had a bison burger with swiss and dijon on thick slices of the bread last night. Obviously, without gluten it’s dense and somewhat crumbly. But it held together really well and had a very pleasant, mild flavor. I definitely recommend it.

With the economy the way it is, I’m sure it’s a tough time for many small businesses like this one. I certainly hope they’re around for years to come, though. They certainly have my business.
