Best Of 2015: Gluten-Free-Friendly

When mother and daughter Michelle and Turu Marx decided to open a restaurant, Michelle had just discovered she was sensitive to gluten after years of being mysteriously ill. It was 2009, and the idea of a restaurant specializing in gluten-free fare still seemed strange. But Michelle told Turu, "I want to be able to eat in my own restaurant." They set up in Manitou Springs and specialized in crepes, many of which were gluten-free. Six months later they were all gluten-free, and it turned out to be a great decision — especially since Turu realized during her 2010 pregnancy that she shared her mom's sensitivity. Now downtown, Coquette's serves a variety of delicious menu items, has a free-standing bakery, and sells baked goods to stores like Whole Foods. — J. Adrian Stanley
