I want to create a safe place to eat and serve food that I take pride in.

The Golden Gourd is pleased to announce its grand opening. The restaurant, which features gluten free and healthy dining options, is located in historic downtown Albion, New York. The Golden Gourd is the brainchild of Louisa Shiffer. After years of struggling to find restaurants that catered to very common food allergies, like gluten intolerance, she decided to open a restaurant that would be safe for diners with wheat and gluten allergies.

"As someone who is sensitive to gluten, I understand how hard it is to find a safe place to eat," said Louisa Shiffer, owner of The Golden Gourd. "That's why I try my best to make my restaurant a place where everyone can eat safely. I understand the dangers of cross-contamination and take measures to prevent it."

The Golden Gourd uses only fresh local ingredients and prides itself on its healthy menu. A majority of the menu items at The Golden Gourd are gluten free, with a wide variety of sandwich choices that are served on Udi's gluten free bread or Martusciello's Italian rolls. The menu features options for everyone, including an array of fresh sandwiches, soups, salads and a children's menu for children under 12.

"If you have allergies of any kind, please let us know," Ms. Shiffer continued. "We will do our best to provide you with a safe and delicious dining experience." The Golden Gourd is located at 118 N. Main St., one block from the Erie canal. The restaurant is open on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. For further information about The Golden Gourd and to view the fresh foods on their menu, please visit their website at
