    wow. a place like this makes our 5-year-old celiac feel almost normal. her gf chicken strips have always been perfect. we can all eat gf and share and be happy here.

    808 E Hancock St, Newberg, OR 97132

    great coffee, great service. not much in the way of GF stuff. a couple prepackaged sweets. UPDATE! They now offer any sandwich gf and they had gf bagels this week!

  • Hopworks BikeBar

    5 starsMay 28, 2013

    3947 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR 97227

    cool green building and business model. good beer (they don't make gf beer but they have some in bottles). decent food. They do have a small kid play area, a little square of carpet worth some toys, but it points to the coolest part: they really are kid friendly. There are kids running all over the place. It's great.

    Good coffee. Good staff. Still kinda new at the gf thing but said they are very careful. Lots of pastries.

  • Hungry Harbor Grille

    5 starsMarch 03, 2013

    313 Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, WA 98631

    Nachos are gf. They also have gf burger buns. They keep a binder with all ingredient info. In a town with almost no gf options this is nice.

  • Chipotle

    5 starsDecember 27, 2012

    12130 SE 82nd Avenue, Suite H241, Happy Valley, OR 97086

    really good tacos and cheaper than expected. kind of confusing if youve never been there before. everything is gf unless you order wheat tacos.

  • Dar Essalam

    29585 SW Park Pl, Wilsonville, OR 97070

    good tasty food. very attentive and accomodating for gluten free. kid friendly. we were bummed they dont have wine. a bit pricey but definitely on our return list.

  • Sweetest Thing Cupcakes

    5 starsNovember 15, 2012

    2501 Portland Rd, Newberg, OR 97132

    Cupcakes are amazing, but the people who work here are the best part. they are always friendly and helpful. I showed up an hour before they opened without realizing it, and they quickly frosted some cupcakes for me!

  • Corbett Fish House

    5 starsAugust 03, 2012

    5901 SW Corbett Ave, Portland, OR 97239

    absolutely awesome. best GF place we've found by far. they even have salad crutons and a kids menu with chicken strips. our 4-year-old celiac was in heaven. I love the clams!

  • Red Robin

    5 starsAugust 02, 2012

    21170 SW Adams Avenue, Sherwood, OR 97140

    awesome. they have GF burger buns and are willing to work with you on just about anything. the 4-year-old celiac loves it. its a great family place, and a guy can even get a drink when necessary.

  • Pop's Dog House

    5 starsJuly 31, 2012

    5467 Glenwood St, Garden City, ID 83714

    perfect little hotdog stand. lots of options, family owned, friendly, and practically anything can be gluten free! a hit with my family, even if we did overwhelm them momentarily with our numbers!

  • Eklecticafe

    1 starsJuly 30, 2012

    352 N Main St, Moab, UT 84532

    totally disorganized and confusing place. no one acknowledged us even though we had been there for 15 mins. also, never saw anything about gluten free items on the menu or anywhere. I could have missed it but, again, I was there for 15 minutes with nothing else to do but look over the menu.

  • Eddie McStiff's

    great staff! very helpful and made me feel confident. celiac 4-year-old loved the pizza.

    try to find the GF baked goods. I dare you.

  • O’Niell’s Irish Pub

    4 starsMay 13, 2012

    4310 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108

    pretty good. awesome that they try! options are limited because the there is gluten in random things like the beans and soups. at least they are aware of it! they had a GF girl on staff the day we went, which is always helpful!

  • The Melting Pot

    3 starsMay 13, 2012

    2011 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104

    was a bit of an ordeal getting a truly GF meal. among many things, waiter actually brought bread to our table right after a lengthy discussion about what is safe and what isn't. wasn't exactly confidence inspiring. food was good but omg expensive: with tip, $200 for four people--and one of us was a four-year-old!

  • Revolution Bakery

    5 starsMay 09, 2012

    1291 San Felipe Ave, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    had a chocolate cupcake. astounded. so good I questioned its GF credentials. indeed it was.

  • Body Cafe

    4 starsMay 09, 2012

    333 W Cordova Rd, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    pretty good. fewer options for GF than I expected. not sure why I expected more. they also have other special diet stuff, like vegan and raw foods.

  • Annapurna's World Vegetarian Restaurant

    4 starsMarch 15, 2012

    1620 St Michaels Dr, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    lots of GF options. lots of different kinds of food cultures represented. we are confident they take GF seriously. as far as our 4 year old celiac goes, she liked the dessert best!

  • Tokyo Joe's

    5 starsMarch 02, 2012

    2320 S Parker Rd, Aurora, CO 80014

    great place. they were very patient with our questions and really do have great food they can make gluten free. rice noodles and GF teriyaki hit the spot with our 4-year-old celiac.

  • India House

    5 starsFebruary 22, 2012

    2501 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    Best Indian food I've had, even before my daughter was diagnosed with celiac. just a lucky break we can still eat there. the staff is great, too. they always dote on her (she's 4), and with their great beards and headwear, she is enthralled.

  • Le Pod Curbside Cuisine

    5 starsFebruary 20, 2012

    502 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    awesome buckwheat crepes!

  • Souper! Salad!

    4 starsNovember 25, 2011

    2428 Cerrillos Rd, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    always something for our 4 year old celiac. she actually loves the place. great that they label the foods now. still, this is Santa Fe and you can only trust them so much. we've never had a problem though.

  • Rooftop Pizzeria

    4 starsOctober 02, 2011

    60 E San Francisco St, Santa Fe, NM 87501

    good pizza. has a very herb-y GF crust. not always good with some pizza combos. great location.

  • Tree House Pastry Shop & Cafe

    4 starsOctober 02, 2011

    1600 Lena St, Santa Fe, NM 87505

    good food, variety of pastries is great. Tuesday is GF day for baked goods. they call it TGF Tuesday. nice that they do this.

  • Harry's Roadhouse

    5 starsSeptember 17, 2011

    96 Old Las Vegas Hwy, Santa Fe, NM 87508

    we go to Harry's with our 3 year old celiac all the time. food is always good. pizza is good. wait staff usually knows the drill and what's in what dish. menu isn't the biggest but we're just glad they are aware and careful. owner has a daughter with celiac I think. had a great GF dessert, lemon poppy seed cake last time.

  • Lotus Garden

    5 starsSeptember 02, 2011

    5975 E Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85712

    we had a nice experience here. the GF options are there. you just have to ask. they can make general tso and many things GF using rice flour. they don't have GF eggrolls, which is what I was hoping for. wife thought this was the best Chinese food she's ever had, GF or not. our 3 year old (the celiac) was happy, too.

  • Picazzo's Organic Italian Kitchen

    5 starsSeptember 01, 2011

    7850 N Oracle Rd, Oro Valley, AZ 85704

    this place does make the GF crowd feel normal! huge selection of GF. they even have mac and cheese for the kids, making our 3 year old celiac a happy kid. pizza was excellent. cost over $100 for four of us, but we're getting used to that in the GF life.

  • Old Pueblo Grille

    3 starsAugust 31, 2011

    60 N Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85711

    they do have a gf menu, and its ok. lots of lettuce dishes. my 3 year old celiac didn't find it inspiring. not even corn chips on the menu, but the waiter said they were gf. we were obviously a bit suspicious. still, we had the guacamole, which was yum. in the end we left and went to sir vezas taco garage about a mile away and that restaurant was awesome.

  • Sir Veza's Taco Garage

    5 starsAugust 31, 2011

    4699 E Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85712

    quirky place but lots of fun! don't be fooled by the macho exterior. it is a very fam friendly place. they have a real gf menu, tons of taco choices and even chicken strips on the kids menu--a rare and very cool thing for us. we have a celiac 3 year old. great find. made us feel almost normal and a little bit cool again. we will definitely go back.

  • Frogs Organic Bakery

    4 starsAugust 31, 2011

    7109 N Oracle Rd, Tucson, AZ 85704

    not bad. they make their own GF bread and my 3 year old ate her whole grilled cheese (she usually leaves crust). its not cheap, and my open face pastrami sandwich was nothing special. the GF chocolate cake we shared went away quickly! overall good food. we wished there were more GF baked goods, like croissants!
