If you're avoiding gluten or sticking to a vegetarian diet, or have friends and family who are, eating out can be a little more involved.  Dining is a great way to enjoy a destination and we don't want anyone to miss out, so we researched all of the locally owned restaurants in Cape Girardeau to find out where those dietary needs can be accommodated - get the scoop on what we found on our blog at VisitCape.com/Blog, just search for Gluten Free.
