Allergy-Friendly Campus Guide: University of Nebraska Omaha


University of Nebraska at Omaha doesn’t have the most allergy-friendly on campus dining options. One great thing about UNO is that all of the dorms are apartment style and have a FULL kitchen! It was so easy to go grocery shopping and cook for myself.

Abby’s University of Nebraska at Omaha Campus Guide


Dundee Double Shot

Dundee Double Shot is a super cute local coffee shop. The ladies that work there are always sweet and they have some of the best coffee in all of Omaha. When I asked about the different milks that they use, she told me that they stored all in the same fridge, but they never came in contact with each other.


WheatFields Eatery & Bakery

Every time I have been to WheatFields the staff has always been very helpful and knowledgeable! They have a gluten free menu and many gluten free pastries. This is by far my favorite spot in Omaha.


Pickleman’s Gourmet Cafe

Pickleman’s doesn’t have a gluten-free bread option for sandwiches, but they do have a really good gluten-free pizza and salads as well!


Jersey Mike’s

I’ve always had such good experiences eating at Jersey Mike’s. They have Udi’s Gluten Free Bread and they always clean the prep area, deli slicer, change gloves, and get clean equipment from the back. This location will also open up new meats and cheeses to ensure that there is no cross-contamination.


Noodles & Company

Noodle’s has the best gluten-free mac n cheese I’ve ever seen. They have a super detailed allergen list online. When I order, I always make sure to let them know that I have a wheat allergy. My favorite part is that they have $5 bowls on Mondays for students!

Jason’s Deli

Jason’s is always a go-to for me! They have gluten-free bread so it’s always an option for a quick lunch or when I want a sandwich. They are also very good about asking if I’m ordering gluten-free due to an allergy.


Zio’s Pizzeria

Zio’s has a great gluten-free pizza! The only sad part is that they don’t deliver and that there isn’t an option for the gluten-free crust on Door Dash.


Cold Stone Creamery

The Cold Stone by campus is always super accommodating to my allergies! I let them know about my allergies and they get a clean stone and scoops.
