This story begins with a diagnosis. In 2007, a friend of Wheat's End co-owners Susan McMillan and Amelia Fonti was diagnosed with celiac disease. Soon after, Amelia learned that she, too, was gluten intolerant. They became aware of the growing unmet need for gluten-free food that did not compromise taste and texture.
In 2012, Susan and Amelia opened Senza, a celiac-safe fine dining restaurant that appealed to every taste and palate. It didn’t take long for young chef Noah Sandoval to earn Senza the world’s first and only Michelin Star ever granted to a gluten-free restaurant in 2013 and again in 2014.
Susan and Amelia converted Senza into Wheat’s End Café in 2015, creating a friendly haven where people can dine in or take out delightful baked goods and prepared dishes, drink great coffee, and enjoy a unique gluten-free brunch on weekends. The Wheat's End skilled bakers enjoy the challenge of creating recipes tailored to the needs of customers with multiple food sensitivities including nut-free, dairy-free, vegan, and other specialty options.
