Rose’s Wheat Free Bakery and
now open on Central Avenue in Highland Park.
The gluten-free eatery opened last week as an outgrowth of the original Evanston location. It’s owned by Lake Forest millionaire Marcus Lemonis, who stars in the CNBC show The Profit.
Lemonis bought Rose’s in Evanston in December 2012. At the time, he was involved in an increasingly bitter legal battle with the owners of Highland Park’s In the Raw vegan restaurant over who had control of the business after Lemonis says he invested more than $100,000 in the restaurant.
Rose’s serves pastries and more substantial items, like quiche, sandwiches and pizza, that are all gluten free. It uses locally-sourced, organic ingredients whenever possible.
The Highland Park cafe is at 478 Central Ave. The Evanston location is at 2901 Central St.
