Breadless: Eating clean on the go

👋 Hey, Joe here. I grabbed lunch this week at Breadless, the gluten-free shop that makes sandwiches with greens and not bread near Jefferson Avenue.

What I ordered: The Cloud 9 Pastrami with mustard, Reuben sauce, havarti cheese and veggies wrapped in a collard green ($11.45).

  • Plus a cup of beans and rice ($6.45).

💭 My thought bubble: The wrap was easy to eat and the filling was well-proportioned and tasty.

  • I felt satisfied and health-conscious after leaving the restaurant. But I can't lie — I was also daydreaming about a heaping pile of pastrami on rye.

If you go: 2760 E. Larned St.

  • Open Monday-Saturday, 10:30am-8pm; Sunday, 11am-6pm.

Of note: Breadless is expanding to Rochester Hills this fall.
