Looking for a gluten free breakfast sandwich at Starbucks? There are 350 stores that have them. You’ll find them in locations throughout San Diego County, California, and in greater Miami, Florida.

I had the chance to try one on Monday, September 26th. Here’s a closeup look:

According to Starbucks media relations, “Starbucks is currently testing a Gluten-Free Breakfast sandwich in 350 Starbucks locations in San Diego and Miami. The test started in August and runs through early October. ” So you have to run quickly to a store to get one before they’re gone!

Look for them in the pastry case:

Each gluten free breakfast sandwich is a generous portion of egg, cheese, and Canadian bacon. The bread was pretty good. I did notice that it was a little powdery or dry in texture. Nonetheless, it was an excellent breakfast sandwich and I enjoyed it. I think this could work nationally!
