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.

The kelowna location is amazing. They have dedicated fryers and staff were well adversed with celiac. Food was prepared safely and brought to the table separate from all other orders. I appreciate them so much! Never a bad meal

Staff knowledgable on celiac, advised the fryer wasn’t dedicated gf. Eaten the gf burgers here a few times now, never gotten sick. They also have vegan burger options.

There is not a dedicated gluten free frier here and they only do deep fried hash browns for their breakfast menu. No option to pan fry

Well when you go for breakfast the only substitute you get for hash browns might be some tomatoes or fruit with your eggs and bacon. So you don’t walk away full if you have a decent appetite or are particularly hungry when you go yet you still pay the full price.

Everyone else’s food and quantity looked great.

Menu has multiple gf options, but staff knowledge of gluten free and cross contamination is a little low. No separate fryer. The breakfast hash on the menu is listed as gluten free, and I asked about contamination with oil. Seemed to surprise the waitress. I had a salad for breakfast

Limited GF items on the menu but no GF desserts or cider. Wait staff seemed familiar with GF but when partner ordered pie for dessert she still brought two spoons, so I wondered exactly how much understanding there was!

I have only been here once and had the cheesesteak hash with shredded hash browns instead of the smashed potatoes. It was delicious and I didn’t get sick. Will go again.

Update: Sahali location does not have a dedicated fryer - only the north shore location does!

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.

I used to be able to eat here no problem, and loved their food. However, twice now I’ve gotten sick: once from their fries (previously fine & only fries I could eat) and once from batter free halibut and a Spot salad. I don’t feel safe eating there anymore and that makes me sad.

Don't trust the dedicated fryer as I was served fries from that fryer but it had a large chunk of fish batter in it. Will not ever eat the fries again. On the positive the burgers in the lettuce is great.

Have a dedicated GF fryer but I only found out after my meal. Server was better informed than the hostess. I was comfortable with the level of information staff provided that I would be served a GF meal. They also have GF buns and pasta. Server explained they also have separate fryers for chicken and fish allergies. They seemed very allergy aware and pro-active.

Always a good, quick choice. Burgers are great! Dedicated fryers, salads are good. If you're celiac, make sure you tell them not to toast the GF bun in their toaster. Either get it un-toasted or have the toast it on the grill, or they have a lettuce wrap option.

It's hit or miss. Sometimes I get sick and sometimes I don't. I just love the legendary burger too much to not keep going. It's the only thing I ever order so not sure about the rest of their GlutenWise menu. I used to bring my own gf bun before they started to carry their own. I really wish they would bring back the turkey gravy which was GF because you could get that as a side or as a poutine and be GF still. They took it off last year and it's still disappointing.

My server was also a celiac, which was a good start. GF options are pretty sparse, but it seems as though they take celiacs seriously and the server was very knowledgeable about my breakfast options.

Always love eating here as their fries are in a dedicated fryer so no cross-contamination. They now have gluten-free buns for burgers but still offer wrapping the burgers and lettuce. They also offer gluten-free pasta.

The GF menu is kind of dumb as they suggest the smash browns for all breakfast items yet they are deep fried, cross contamination?!? When I went to the Maple Ridge location I asked for the shredded hash browns instead and the waitress in a not so friendly way said "those are coated in flour you know", I asked her why then they are an option on a GF menu? And that I have had them before without an issue. She said "well I guess it doesn't affect you then" long story short I got the smash browns, felt like crap for two days and the shredded hash browns do not contain any flour. Been to a few white spots since but only for breakfast and no issues.
