A comprehensive, up-to-date guide to nut free Los Angeles, including nut free bakeries, nut free restaurants, nut free ice cream shops, and other allergy-friendly restaurant options.
Los Angeles is my home away from home (I’m currently living in Boston), so I wanted to create this Nut Free Los Angeles or Nut Free LA list ASAP. I lived in LA for, gosh, something like 12 years I think? All of my 20s and the beginning of my 30s. So yeah, I have some fun memories from living there, and I hope to call it “home” again someday. Although I technically met my husband in Black Rock City, we were both living in LA at the time, so we kicked off our journey together, commuting between Echo Park and Topanga Canyon. Such. Great. Memories.

Allergy-Friendly Los Angeles Restaurants
These are restaurants with excellent allergy training in place, separate menus indicating items containing allergens, etc. One recommendation is to ASK QUESTIONS, because most of these restaurants are ensuring you there aren’t any nuts in your meal, and that it will be prepared in a clean space, safe from cross contamination. But, most cannot guarantee that all ingredients are made in dedicated, allergen-free facilities. So, it all depends on the severity of your allergy and your comfort level with each venue.
Maggiano’s Little Italy (locations at The Grove in Los Angeles, Woodland Hills and Costa Mesa) – peanut-free kitchen; staff is allergy trained and dedicated to providing a safe dining experience
Real Food Daily (Pasadena, West Hollywood & LAX locations) – menu items are listed with allergen information, such as peanut free, gluten free, etc. Cross-contamination in the kitchen is a potential issue, but they claim to do their best to provide safe meals.
Nut Free Fast Food
Chipotle (multiple locations nationwide) – No items in their restaurants contain peanuts or tree nuts, but they cannot guarantee the complete absence of these allergens
Does your child have a peanut allergy? I love recommending the book Peter Can’t Eat Peanuts to parents. It’s an approachable story that has really resonated with and empowered my son. Available for only $5 on Amazon!
