Avon Country Deli, nestled in historic Riverdale Farms, is one of the Farmington Valley’s best kept secrets. They’ve got incredible outdoor  seating, a gorgeous view of Hublein Tower, and delicious gluten-free options.  Open for breakfast(served all day) and lunch only, you can get any sandwich on gluten-free bread, breakfast sandwiches on GF english muffins(see eggs benedict below), and they make delicious gluten-free pancakes. And, because their food is so darn good, we have to mention that their inherently GF home fries and corned beef hash are out of this world.

As is the case with excellent breakfast spots, they can get quite busy on weekend mornings, particularly in the colder months when there’s no outdoor seating available. Call us crazy, but we love a breakfast place that gets as busy as this one. Makes us feel just a little bit lucky to get seated….and makes those pancakes even more delicious!

*Avon Country Deli is not a dedicated gluten-free facility. Always use your own judgement when eating out.
