 My DH and I are thinking of opening up a small cafe in the near future by using one of our VA loans. What I want to know is if the cafe was called GFC (Gluten Free Cafe) and served everything gluten free would it be some place people will eat at? The menu would have normal items for all 3 meals and even deserts. For example pancakes for breakfast, sandwiches and pastas for lunch/dinner but everything would be 100% gluten free. We would even hold a small taste test in public where we would make an item the normal way and gluten free and have the test person see if they can tell the difference.  The idea came to me since I love cooking and I have Crohn's Disease and hard to eat out when on a gluten free diet. 

 

Side Note:

Thanks for everyone's input! The name is not in concrete so I can mess with it later since this is still in the planning phase. I will not be offering things with gluten to prevent any accidental cross contamination. Most recipes I have already been tested and you cant tell the difference and like stated above will do samples for the public.

Yes I would. There are a few places here that I love and the meals are all gluten free and made with locally grown produce.

I love the idea, but the name turns me away. Gfc seems a bit industrial and reminiscent of gmo to me.

There are alot of people who are GF and its really hard for them to find places to eat or places that will substitute menu items, I think its a good idea! But it also depends on where you live, it might thrive in a big city but not do well in a small town.
