Check For Gluten Free Cafe In A Smartphone App
If you have a smartphone, then try the Find Me Gluten Free app. It is helpful for identifying user-contributed GF ideas! Search for it in the app store.
What I don’t like about this app is that a few reviewers sort of bash restaurants for things like a bad wait person or long wait time when it is seemingly not relevant to the whether everything was GF…so take the reviews with a grain of salt.

It’s hard on you and those you are with!
These are some of pointers:
- Throw some gluten-free protein bars in your car in case.
- Spend time to research the area. Come up with a few Gluten Free Cafe options.
- If you’ve never been to a Gluten Free Cafe in Lansing , then stick to foods that are likely gluten-free – meats, salads, fruits that sort of thing. This is not likely the best time to experiment with gluten free pasta or cake – if you’ve never been to the place before!
- Lastly, visit at less busy times. Eat dinner earlyish or try for a late lunch. Show up at a time you can easily have the full attention of your wait person and the chefs aren’t too busy.
