My friend Stevie and I checked out Udi's Bread Café in Stapleton the other day. I've been looking forward to trying Udi's for a long time; the company makes a lot of gluten free breads and is based in Denver, so I knew I had to do it when I was visiting the city. Stevie is also gluten free, so it was easy to convince him to check out Udi's with me.
Udi's makes a great selection of gluten free food, including breads, granola, muffins, bagels and pizza crusts. I was excited to try out a sandwich fully created by a Udi's using their own gluten free bread. I had tried to make it out to Udi's the last time I was in Denver but we were on a tight schedule and didn't fit it in. I wouldn't make the same mistake twice!
I ordered the eggplant sandwich, although on the menu linked in the next sentence it is listed as an eggplant panini. You can find the full menu here, which is very well-marked with gluten free options. Almost everything can be made gluten free (or is naturally gluten free). My sandwich was terrific; it was so nice to be able to walk in and order a sandwich, a rare event for a Celiac like myself. I really enjoyed the eggplant and goat cheese pairing. We also ordered a side of sweet potato fries which were delicious; they weren't the best sweet potato fries I've ever had (I think that honor is reserved for The Counter) but I still enjoyed them.
If I'm in Denver again soon, I'll definitely check out Udi's again.
Do you love it or do you love it?
