Summary of Gluten Free Menu Options at Sweetgreen

Pro tips and a quick summary of everything gluten free at Sweetgreen

  1. When you order at the store or on the app, tell them you have an allergy or Celiac Disease so they take precautions with your drinks and food. It’s difficult to add this in the app, so consider that.
  2. Sweetgreen has a lot of gluten free options! You can definitely find something delicious, healthy, and safe to eat here.
  3. Just be careful with the toppings/bread crumbs. I order the Kale Caesar a lot, and unfortunately they have accidentally given me bread crumbs instead of parmesan crisps more than once. So this is really the biggest risk at Sweetgreen, atleast for me.
  4. Sweetgreen has great reviews on the Find Me Gluten Free app. With an average of 4.5 stars from over 50 people, the majority contain a positive sentiment. All the negative reviews mentioned breadcrumbs, croutons, or bread. So always look out for that!
  5. Personal experiences here were mainly good. Outside from the few times I’ve gotten bread crumbs on my salad, every other experience at Sweetgreen has been good!
