My child has celiac disease.
1603 Orrington Ave, Evanston, IL 60201
There are 3 separate menus - vegan, gluten free, and everything else. The food is wonderful. If you're celiac, the choices are many and varied, and you can relax and enjoy the food without worrying about cross contamination. What an awesome restaurant!

Whenever I'm in Chicago I eat at Cassava. The empanadas and bread rolls are the best (literally)! My (celiac) daughter loves the chicken empanadas, while I simply can't decide on a favorite. If there was one in Seattle, I'd be tempted to stop in everyday.

This place is amazing! Out by the airport and so worth the drive! If you haven't had a bagel dog since being diagnosed with celiac, you are in for a major treat! Also, they make and smoke their own sausage, so I'd highly recommend the bagel dog with sausage. My daughter was in heaven. Cookies are wonderful, pies are amazing with a light, flaky crust, the breads (many options) are delicious - we bought the cranberry and the sweet almond, which will be amazing in French toast. On another note, the smoke their own wild Alaska salmon and make the best (gf) spread I have ever tasted.

I accompanied my niece, who is not GF, to a wedding cake tasting at Julie's. My daughter, who has celiac disease, also attended. We agreed that the cakes, frostings, and fillings are phenomenal. The service provided at the tasting was outstanding, and it was easy to see that the cake decorator is extremely skilled. One of the best bakeries I've ever visited - whether you need a wedding cake, specialty cake, or just a doughnut and a latte, you'll love this place!

Don't leave Billings without visiting this bakery. We loved the cinnamon rolls! The banana bread and brownies are also very good, and the garlic cheddar rolls are beyond excellent! The cupcakes looked fabulous, and now that we know what a stellar bakery this is, we'll try those on our next trip.

The food is fresh, organic and delicious! I loved the tuna salad on pita (pita is incredibly good and made locally); other good choices are the black bean burrito -- with or without eggs, and the protein bowl. The French toast was good, but fresh berries, a little powdered sugar, and whipped cream would have made it memorable. We loved this place.

Love this small neighborhood Mediterranean restaurant in Ravenna. The pasta dishes can be made gluten free and if you call ahead, the chef is happy to make the eggplant parmigiana gluten free. We tried the gf gnocchi with homemade pesto and it was wonderful. The gluten free paella was stuffed with seafood and had amazing flavor. The chef understands about avoiding cross contamination and is happy to discuss menu options. There's a nice deck out back for al fresco dining and occasional live music.

Sometimes you find a high level of knowledge about celiac disease and careful food prep where you least expect it. This is the case at Jack Sprats. The food is fresh, well prepared, and very good! Care is taken to avoid cross contamination, but the owner still stays current-- she was at a training on gluten free meal prep when we stopped by for lunch last week. A bonus--they serve the locally made kombucha and it's amazing!
49 North Main Street, Ashland, OR 97520
It was such a relief to find this restaurant that we ate here 3 nights in a row! The food is very good, and their care and knowledge surrounding celiac is excellent. My daughter loved the gf pasta Alfredo and their gf bread was so good, I went to the Ashland Co-Op and bought a loaf (it's Glutenus Minimus, by Loafers Baking Co.--a local company)! Their gf cheesecake is outstanding!

Individuals with celiac can no longer eat safely here. The wait staff has no knowledge of celiac or gluten free dining without cross contamination, nor do they care. This used to be one of our favorite "safe" restaurants, where we could eat without worry. But I understand the owners have gone to California to open a new restaurant and previous wait staff with knowledge are gone. We'll never eat here again.
600 Pine St #132, Seattle, WA 98101
Well trained wait staff, GF menu, extremely knowledgeable about celiac disease--NOT what you'd expect to find at an Italian restaurant! If you have celiac disease, you can relax and enjoy a wonderful meal here. We love this place!
