Gluten-Free in Wichita: Top 20 Best Restaurants & Bakeries

Simple Life Sweets in Valley Center KS is the only commercial Wichita-area bakery that is 100% gluten free!

Finding gluten-free options in Wichita has gotten so much easier in the last few years! Whether you’re looking for fine dining, pizza, or donuts, you’ve got options. This list is by no means exhaustive – but it is a list of most-trusted spots by Celiac and gluten-free diners in Wichita, which means they have good menu selections & low incidence of getting sick after visiting.

Disclaimer: Only two businesses on this list are 100% dedicated gluten-free and able to guarantee no cross-contamination (shoutout to Simple Life Sweets and Simply Baked by Victoria!) for Celiacs. Some restaurants have trained staff & careful kitchens while others merely offer menu items prepared with gluten-free ingredients. Everyone is different with varying levels of comfort when it comes to risk, so always do your research and talk to waitstaff to make sure you understand their food prep procedures.
