If you like indulgent, healthy, and all gluten-free food you’re going to want to check out Nectarine Grove in Leucadia, CA!
Nectarine Grove is relatively new in the area and has some really special dishes. They serve up pizza, salads, bowls, burgers, sandwiches, baked goods and breads, breakfast (all day!), and did I mention it is all gluten-free?! They also have a smoothie and coffee bar. I love that they use healthy, organic, and locally-sourced ingredients including grass-fed mozzarella on the pizzas and grass-fed beef on the burgers. Remember, grass-fed dairy and meat has omega-3’s that we tend to not get enough of!
I love the pizzas, they’re made with a unique “paleo” crust that is different from the gluten-free crust at most restaurants. It’s thick, hearty, with a different, delicious texture. I recently discovered the chicken & waffles at this place, too, and they’re to die for! You normally can’t get gluten-free chicken & waffles, right?? Nectarine Grove’s version is huge and I think way better than any regular one. It comes with sides of coleslaw, mustard, maple syrup, and optional grass-fed butter.
Nectarine Grove’s baked goods are diverse, all are gluten-free, some are vegan, some are paleo. They’re similar to those at their sister restaurant Healthy Creations. The baked goods include some of the most delicious cinnamon rolls on earth. Have them heat it up for you, or take one to go and heat it in the oven at home.
