Tucker and Bevvy

The theme at these Aussie-style eateries—one a sit-down breakfast spot and the other a takeout counter—is healthy food. Naturally, then, that means lots of options for gluten avoiders. Almost all the breakfast items, from omelets to the mushrooms on rosti, a potato pancake, are gluten free, and there’s even a gluten-free toast option. At the takeout location, grab a quinoa tabbouleh, white bean and sage hummus, and gluten-free crackers for a picnic.

Tucker and Bevvy Breakfast at Hee Hing Plaza, 449 Kapahulu Ave., Suite 203, 732-0050; Tucker and Bevvy Picnic Food at 2586 Kalākaua Ave., 922-0099, tuckerandbevvy.com


Waialua Bakery & Juice Bar

There’s an option of gluten-free bread for your sandwich, and, unless it runs out, gluten-free peanut butter cookies, too. The turkey pesto is gratifying and gluten- and dairy-free.

66-200 Kamehameha Highway, 341-2838


Best of Gluten-free Honolulu

Standouts in places you wouldn’t expect.


Deconstructed shawarma sandwich from Shaloha Pita

Normally, Shaloha’s grilled chicken shawarma, hummus, tahini and plethora of salads go into a pita pocket. Subtract the pita and the wheaty tabbouleh, and you have a crunchy, fresh take on plate lunch.

3133 Waialae Ave., 744-4222, shalohapita.com


Gluten-free pizza from Zpizza

Rice flour gives this chain’s gluten-free pizza a crust that’s light, crispy and gratifying. Even the gluten tolerant have been known to order this over the wheat version.

Multiple locations, zpizza.com


Kula strawberry “cheesecake” from MW Restaurant

Most of the savory dishes on the menu contain soy sauce or wheat, but dessert is easy to navigate. In Michelle Karr-Ueoka’s cheesecake, kiawe-flour crumbles add a gluten-free crunch to the strawberry sorbet and strawberries filled with li hing ume.

1538 Kapiolani Blvd., 955-6505, mwrestaurant.com
