There is a diner two blocks from my job that has gluten free pancakes. I've never been because diner food, in my opinion, is for weekend brunch or late night burgers. Neither of which usually happen near my office. But, tomorrow is my 26th birthday and I thought I'd treat myself to some gluten free pancakes for breakfast this morning. I didn't have high hopes, but these were pretty good. They were light and fluffy and everything pancakes should be. My only qualms were the $10 price tag and the fact that they didn't have real maple syrup, but most diners don't.
Bloom's is on 39th and Lexington in Midtown Manhattan. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner 7 days a week. Their extensive gluten free menu includes gluten free pancakes, french toast, and gluten free toast to go with egg dishes in the morning. Sandwiches are served on gluten free bread and burgers are served on gluten free buns. They also have salads, entrees, and desserts typical to diners.
