Sometimes, a girl or a fella simply wants a gluten free donut or muffin with their cuppa joe. Or tea. Or beverage of your choice. Sharing my compiled list of Michigan coffee shop gluten free offerings across the state!

Michigan Coffee Shop Gluten Free options

My husband has three foodie loves in life. Beer. Cheese. Coffee. We have a deal. When we check out a gluten free restaurant or bakery, he gets to visit the nearest coffee shop. However, I always lament that there are no safe gluten free “goodies” around. After reaching out to my baker friends, I realize Michigan baristas offer lots of options!

**Note– Please know that those baking under Cottage Law, from their home, are prohibited from selling their baked goods at a commercial business. Why? Because their kitchen has not been inspected by the health department. Only baked goods made in a commercial kitchen can be sold in additional locations.

  1. Also, Saunder’s Bakery on River in Holland! They have a lot of gluten free options AND just launched a brand new lunch menu!

  2. None in the UP? I beg to differ. I know of at least three, all in the Keweenaw.

    Café Rosetta in Calumet is fantastic! Great coffee, a lot of gluten free and vegan options make in-house, including gf pannukkau, which if you don’t know is a Finnish pancake somewhat similar-to-but-totally-different from a crepe.

    Bookworm in Houghton is also worth mentioning. It offers some in-house gluten-free pastries and desserts as well as ice cream in gluten free cones. Coffee is locally sourced from Keweenaw Coffee Works up in Calumet.

    Also in Houghton is 5th & Elm Coffee House. Coffee also come from Keweenaw Coffee Works and they offer sandwiches on gluten-free bread. I don’t think it’s made in-house, but I believe it’s locally sourced from a bakery in town.

    And, on a separate note, this list definitely needs to list Dripworks Coffee in Petoskey. I’m not gluten-free, but my wife is, and their gluten-free donuts are some of the best donuts I’ve had period. They’re so good, that we’ve literally driven out of our way for them before. Coffee is pretty good too.

    1. Thanks for these recommendations. I wasn’t trying to diss the UP. I just haven’t been there yet. I don’t know of any 100% dedicated gluten free bakers in the UP, and I had been relying on those bakers to tell me where there treats were offered.

  3. Walnut and park typically has at least one gf muffin choice and some cookies at times. There is also a coffee shop in otsego Mezzo I think that always has options!!!

  4. Oasis Health Foods and More offer organic coffee and gluten free vegan baked goods. Specifically muffins and adding more soon.
