Ina's - Not Just My Mom's Name

Ina, aka the Breakfast Queen, in Chicago, Illinois knows all about being gluten-free accommodating.  Yes, my mom's name is also Ina, so I was doubly intrigued to find out if Ina's was all I heard it was cracked up to be. Ina, a leader in the effort to ban artificial trans fats, opened up Ina's Kitchen in 1991.  Ina understands and teaches cross contamination and is a hands on owner.  Her menu has GF all over it to signify those options that are gluten free accommodating.
