Can’t Stomach Gluten? Teddy Skiadiotis’ Kraft Cafe’s Your Spot

September 25, 2021

If you live in or around St. Petersburg, Florida or traveling there and need your food and pasties without gluten, Teddy Skiadiotis's Kraft Cafe has what you want.

He grew up in his family's restaurants in Queens, New York but told St. Pete Catalyst he felt bad for customers who had an intolerance for gluten and wanted to make sure his diner had foods for them.

He gave up a career as a proprietary trader on Wall Street because of the pressure and returned to what he knew: running a diner, Greek-American style. He moved to Florida in 2004 to help run his family's new restaurant, Skidders, in St. Petersburg and moved there permanently three years later.

When a waitress told him an elderly lady couldn't eat anything because of gluten he bought specialty flour and ingredients to make her a pizza without it, at no charge.

“She hadn’t had pizza in 15 years,” said Skiadiotis. “She was so grateful.”

He bought a separate toaster to make gluten-free toast for breakfasts as well as pasta and pizzas, his place popping up first on Google for “gluten-free St. Pete.”

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams?
