Where to Eat Dairy & Gluten Free in Miami

In the last few years I got spend a few months in Florida, and it’s about time I put together a guide about my favorite place to eat dairy and gluten free in Miami!

Just like I did for all of my other gluten free city guides, I pinned all of the place I recommend on the map below, so that you can save it on your phone and use it when you are out and about without going crazy to find gluten free places in Miami.

Gluten Free in Miami

This article about where to eat dairy and gluten free in Miami combines the places I actually had a chance to try myself with some of the places I was recommended by my readers, which I listed here for your convenience so that you can let me know what you think about them!

The good news for all those who are following the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is that, thanks the large South American influence that shapes the food scenes in Miami, it’s easy to find grain and nightshade free staples such as plantain (chips, baked and tostones) and yuca or cassava (baked yuca fries are sold at the hot food bar at Whole Foods and boiled yuca is served as a side in many Cuban and Porto Rican restaurants).

GUIDE: Where to Eat Gluten Free in Miami


900 S Miami Ave #125, Miami, FL 33130

This is by far the best place I tried that was fully gluten free in Lisbon. And in all honesty, it rose up there, right next to some of my all time favorite fully paleo places in the world, like Hu Kitchen in New York and Bulletproof in Santa Monica).

Since I stayed in Brickell, Dirt was basically my go-to spot to grab a healthy lunch. They have a great menu with lots of gluten free, paleo and dairy free options. I tried the gluten free tostada topped with loads of avocado and kale, as well as their kale salad with cashew cream (can you tell I like kale?;) and they there were both great. They also offer gluten free burgers with sweet potato fries and a daily gluten free, vegan desserts which are also really good!

It’s located in the Mary Brickell Village and is has a nice and quiet sitting area where you can enjoy your good in the beautiful Miami weather 🙂

Green Life Organic Bistro

3 Locations (Brickell, South Beach & Coral Gables)

This place offers great acai bowls and lots of dairy free drink options. I went back several times to get a coconut milk matcha latte and a side of delicious paleo ‘Alfajores” (South American cookie sandwiches) made with tapioca flour. They are provided by a local brand called “Barbarella Paleo” and they come in three different flavors: traditional (hazelnut), chocolate chips, and guava. I always went for the regular and they were absolutely delicious!!

The outdoor area is truly beautiful and perfect for taking photos. I would come back there to hang out and get a kombucha, but not for a full meal.

Manna Life Food

80 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33132

Since Manna is a plant based restaurant, you don’t have to worry about dairy here! Also, their menu is fully gluten free and they offer many raw food options as well (just like their delicious raw desserts or their kelp noodle pasta with dairy free pesto and Pad Thai).

I really enjoyed trying their “Arepas” (corn and flaxseed flatbreads) topped with avocado, cashew cheese, and help seeds.

They have a great selection of nut milk and cold pressed juices, ands since this place is just a quick walk from the Whole Foods in downtime, you can easily stope there for a bite after you ran your errands.

Lastly, in case you are in the mood for dessert, they have a Banana Pound Cake which is dairy and gluten free.

Havana 1957

Multiple Locations in South Beach & Brickell

This place that offers authentic Cuban food is perfect to try typical sides like tostones and boiled yuca, which are great (and filling) gluten and nightshade free options. While I am sure their regular food is very tasty, I’ve always only got these 2 things because I love them so much and it’s so hard to find them in other cities. Plus, I am sure they are grain and gluten free 😉

It’s more gourmet than the gluten free places listed above, and serves food with both European and Latin influences. It offers seating with a great sea view which is always a plus!

Pizza Rusticsa

Multiple Locations (Downtown, Brickell, South Beach)

If you are craving gluten free pizza, Pizza Rustica offers a great selection of pies, but since the pizza is not made in a dedicated gluten free facility, they cannot guarantee that there’s no cross contamination. Depending on your level of tolerance, you can give it a go!
