Great Harvest Bread in West Seattle

gluten-free in West Seattle

Have you noticed it lately? Whenever we're walking, we spot the phrase, on packages and advertisements and even in the windows of bakeries: gluten-free.

How did we become the cool kids?

Gluten-free is everywhere. Well, not everywhere. Not in hospital cafeterias, airports, school lunchrooms, or places where we need something to eat and nothing exists for us. But still, it's a start. When I was diagnosed with celiac, four years ago, I had to drive around to several different stores to find what I needed to make a cookie recipe. These days, I have my pick of places I want to be.

Or, when I'm in West Seattle, I just go into the Great Harvest Bread Company.

I know. With a name like that, it has to be gluten, right? Except, this particular location of the bread company has gluten-free pizza crusts, breads, scones, hamburger buns, and cupcakes. And they're good.

After I took photographs, in astonishment, I asked the young woman behind the counter how this came to be. The owner and her daughter cannot eat gluten. So they have set out to conquer gluten-free baking, for the sake of everyone else.

Oh yeah.

I've noticed a lot more people becoming aware. It started in St. Louis for me when I told the waitress not to put croutons on my salad and I didn't want bread with my meal. Automatically she put 2 & 2 together. I was very cool. My friends have noticed it more too. One word, Revolution.

Oie, if only the other locations (specifically the ones closer to me) did too! I suppose ... I'll have to eventually trek down there to check it out.

Oh my! Thank you for posting this under your recommendations! I love their breads!I hopped on I-5 the moment after I read this!
I had a GF orangecicle cupcake while I was there and brought home a loaf of their rice bread. It was a bit pricey, but my toast with almond butter made it worth it! I'd much rather spend the extra money for bread that hasn't been frozen.
Thank you!

Hey there,
I know this conversation was started a few months ago, but I have seen some gluten free stuff at another Great Harvest up in Bellingham. The lineup is not as extensive as West Seattle, but they make a really good, soft & moist bread called Flax & Grain (with or without seeds) that's available Tuesday-Thursdays. It's so yummy...I'm not even gluten-free but will have multiple slices of it, it's that good. There's sorghum and amaranth in it.
