I’ve never loved eggs. I still don’t. In fact – I try and avoid them. But, they are everywhere — damn chickens.
So, imagine what it’s like going on vacation, a place that you have been dreaming about for months.
You finally get there, and everyone is serving eggs for breakfast. You ask for gluten-free pancakes or waffles, and they look at you like you are a foreigner.
I started researching breakfast options for my future travel destinations before I arrived. And, that includes donut holes.
I’ve outlined some of the best places in the city to find donuts, waffles, and pastries. While some of them may be high-calorie high carb options, after all, we are on damn vacation.
Let’s order a tall stack of pancakes!
These are some of the best gluten-free breakfast restaurants in NYC. I hope you fall in love with something sweet and utterly addicting. I’ve lost hours of sleep in the last four months, dreaming about homemade donuts and lemon icing.
I’m making it my number one priority to show you that eating gluten-free items, is not only easy but mouthwatering.

New York wouldn’t be the same without Michelin Star restaurants flooding the streets, food vendors selling dogs, wine with brunch, and jazz clubs. Marea near Columbus Circle will have forever changed my life. If you are only in New York for one night, Marea should be at the top of the list.
