Wicked Waffle

My goal is to discover gluten-free food in the District to make your gluten-free diet easier.

1712 I St NW, Washington, DC 20006

What I got: Gluten-free waffle sandwich with tomato, mozzarella & arugula with balsamic and extra-virgin olive oil dressing.


Gluten-free friendliness: Gluten-free waffles people. They’re delicious. I didn’t realize I missed waffles until I had this amazing bite of heaven that tastes like the real thing.  Almost every topping on the extensive menu can be ordered on a gluten-free waffle, with the exceptions of tuna and chicken salad that contain bread crumb seasonings. The gluten-free waffles are made with tapioca flour and cost an extra .95 cents. If you’re not feeling a waffle, soup and salad options are available as well.

Overall vibe: Wicked Waffle’s mantra “No butter, no syrup” may be true, but fear not. There is plenty of everything else you could ever want to eat on a waffle. (Roasted Fuji apples and cinnamon, anyone?) Both the space and the beige, styrofoam containers (neither environmentally friendly nor appetizing) make this a great grab-and-go meal for professionals in the surrounding office buildings. A few tables and chairs are available if you have a little more time on your hands.


Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go again

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. Can you tell us what measures they have in place to avoid cross-contamination? Can’t wait to try this place out!

  2. Hi Alyssa — I had trouble contacting Wicked Waffle to answer your question. When it comes to food allergies, though, it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you are concerned about cross-contamination, I recommend speaking with someone at the restaurant.
