Wow, I cannot believe that it’s taken me so long to find this place. Fresh Thymes Eatery is a phenomenal restaurant in the Steelyards in Boulder. Their kitchen is 100% Gluten-Free! The atmosphere is really enjoyable and the staff was so helpful. There are so many options on the menu, I was overwhelmed with choices.
We ended up trying the mac and cheese (also dairy-free) with chicken, a protein plate with steak, and two side salads, and a baguette (yes, I said a baguette!). I truly LOVED everything. The mac and cheese was SO delicious, made with a creamy cashew sauce, and topped with perfectly grilled chicken. I have tried a fair share of dairy-free, gluten-free mac and cheeses before and they weren’t the best, but this was actually really incredible. The side salads I got were so healthy and actually tasted really good. Sometimes when they are “too healthy” the taste can wane, but that was not the case at all. The steak was delicious too, thinly sliced and marinated with a very good sauce.
Now, the baguette. This is the first baguette that I have had in 10 years. It was so good that I momentarily panicked and did not believe it was gluten-free, and had to double check. It was crispy on the outside and doughy on the inside, exactly like I remember all those wheat based baguettes tasting, but even better. Oh my, just talking about this makes me want to go back there for dinner tonight. There was also an incredible array of baked goods that I wanted to try as well; brownies, cookies, pumpkin pie, but I was too full to try them! If you are in the Boulder area- this place is a MUST try!
