The staff was VERY knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the menu was very limited for celiacs. The burgers have breadcrumbs and the sauces for pasta have flour. Still a good seafood pasta. I won’t put it as fully celiac-friendly because of the limited options.

Awful Celiac accomodations. I've gotten sick there every time I tried it.

They have gluten free buns but do not dedicate a fryer as most Whitespot locations do. Front of house staff was nice and made the effort to ask kitchen if it was safe for celiacs and kitchen staff was honest so that’s a plus!! Still it’s always disappointing when you become accustomed to great options from a restaurant chain and drive out of your way to find the “odd man out” In my experience 80-90 percent of white spots and even triple Os put amazing effort into being celiac safe and also having dedicated fryer .

Celiac kids approved. We ordered kids burger and pasta, sides were substituted with fruit. They don’t have separate friers. The buns were soft and pasta was delicious.

Safety is not 100% since the is always a possibility of cross-contamination, but the servers are aware of the difference between gf and allergy. We have never gotten glutenized at a White Spot.

The service at the Kamloops one is really good.

Warning: the smash potatoes are done in the same deep fryer so are not celiac safe. That means there is only one celiac-friendly option on the breakfast menu. Huge thanks to our server for pointing that out!

The server had knowledge about the processes and explained the ‘purple bin’ is the gf tools for the kitchen and they don’t toast the buns. There were options for us other than fruit to sub for the potatoes. The server told us they have Celiac as well so understands! We paid more for avocado than I would have liked as a sub for potatoes. But overall, we’d go back when in a pinch.
