Café Avalaun
It’s official. Brian Doyle will be opening Café Avalaun, the first all gluten free restaurant in the Cleveland area sometime this September. If you are interested in a position, HIRING is Still Going On. It’s located on 4640 Richmond Road and hours will be Monday- Friday from 7am-3pm at first, until Brian gets the business rolling. Menu items will be gluten-free baked items, salads, soups, and crepes— both sweet and savory—and the café will seat about 20 people.
Brian is not new to gluten free. He is the chef and owner of Sow Food Catering which offers gluten free options and uses locally grown food. He’s also the chef for Beachland Ballroom. It is fair to say he is part of the farm to table movement. Also known as CSA–Community Sustainable Agriculture– it started around the West Side Market and urban gardens and has spread like wildfire, inspiring up-and- coming restaurateurs.
Look out Cleveland. Gluten Free dining is coming! Stay tuned!

  1. Congratulations to both of these business owners! Both are trail-blazers. As someone
    with Celiac, it is not a pleasant experience going out to dine unless it’s a dedicated
    establishment. Bravo!! Looking forward to having a place to go.

  2. How wonderful! I’m not up in Cleveland much, but Aurora isn’t too far away! I wonder, will these restaurants make their products from scratch? I have found that too many GF-labeled products contain too much sugar. I will happily contact these places to find out. I am so glad to have dedicated GF restaurants in our area! Congratulations to them both!

  3. So excited to visit Cafe Avalaun! A heartfelt congratulations and thank you to Chef Doyle for his ongoing efforts for the gluten-free community, and toward safe, sustainable, community-based food.

    Congratulations to Alex’s Italian Catering, as well! What wonderful additions to Northeast Ohio gluten-free dining.
