Peregrine Espresso

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

Multiple locations

*This post breaks all the rules because a) Peregrine Espresso is a coffee shop and b) the scone is made out-of-house at Buzz Bakery and brought in fresh each morning. BUT, I couldn’t not tell you about this treat. So here it goes.

What I got: Gluten-free vanilla fig scone. I can’t stop thinking about this scone. I bought one on my way back from a big brunch last weekend because I have zero will power. It’s a good size, and the texture is close to that of a traditional scone. My brother (who is not gluten-free) has shared it with me more than once, which is the true sign of a good gluten-free product. The coffee is good, too.

Gluten-free friendliness: The scone is the only gluten-free pastry. (As someone who has trouble making tough decisions about breakfast pastries, though, I’m not complaining.) All the other snacks and desserts available are not gluten-free.

Overall vibe: This coffee shop is similar to other pop-up, trendy coffee places in the city. The exposed brick wall gives the small space a warm feeling, but there isn’t much seating. Your best bet is to take the scone and coffee to go.

Gluten-free gut reaction: Would go back
