Any suggestions for a family? We'll be there for 2 days. Please suggest any places that are good for a celiac to eat at. Thanks a bunch. Really need the help! :) We have 2 kids. Not pizza please.

I didn't have much luck in SF other than two places.  One is the Mariposa Bakery located in the Ferry Bldg.  It's in the Embarcadero District on the bay.  The entire bakery is gluten free.  The other place is called Pier 21 - it's also on the bay.  Not a great location for kids, but they do have burger and fries, so maybe you could order to go.  It's more of a sports bar.  I was very discouraged, but my husband walked in there, told them what we were looking for, and walked out with the manager who wanted to meet me. She has been eating gluten free for years.  That place was a life saver for me.  Several places along the bay actually told me that I should move out of line because they didn't have anything for me.  I was dumbfounded and disappointed.  Good luck, and if you find something, please post it as I'm in SF a few times per year.

Mariposa has 2 locations - Ferry Bldg & the edge of Berkley.  You can get bakery stuff & sandwiches.  We had good luck with IN & Out burgers.  There are all the usual chains.

If you want to visit Pacifica (lovely coastal town about 12 miles south of SF), The Surf Spot is an excellent place for gluten free dining.  They are closed on Mondays.  I know you specified no pizza, but they do make an awesome gluten-free pizza in addition to other lovely foods and desserts, and gluten free rolls made in-house.  There is an outdoor area in the back of the restaurant, with a volleyball court and a grass area where kids can run and play, if you don't want to sit indoors.

 

In Half Moon Bay you can eat at Fish and Frites, on Main Street.  I was so excited to be able to have real fish and chips, all gluten free.  They use a rice based batter for the gluten-free version, and a dedicated fryer.  You have a choice of fish, fresh from the fishing boats at Pillar Point Harbor. (and it's two shops away from a really cute toy store...)

 

I don't eat in SF very often, but San Francisco is a very gluten free friendly city.  Many restaurants have gluten-free menus and vegetarian, vegan, etc options as well.  As long as you aren't craving clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, you should have little trouble finding places to eat.  

 

The Find Me Gluten Free app is a good resource for safe restaurants.  

 

I hope your trip is great and healthy!

Also, I second the Mariposa Bakery.  Their gluten-free cinnamon rolls are eye-rolling, stop what you are doing and enjoy them, tasty.

I'll third Mariposa Bakery....my kids love their chocoloate pumpkin muffins and just about everything else we have had from there.

 

The Bay Area is awesome for gluten-free dining -- try checking the find me gluten free website or app -- should find lots of options where sillyaks have left safe/not safe details.

 

Have a great trip :)

We went to Fog Harbor, The Daily Grill and Sausalito's Crab House and Prime Rib. I was able to find something gluten-free at each one. I do suggest these restaurants. The best was Nordstrom Cafe. The best service and they really cared. I hope this helps someone else on their gluten-free journey in SF. Also the Mariposa Bakery was good for bread and rolls. Yumm. :)

Its a bit spendy, more of a date place than a family placce. But the Stinking Rose has always been my stop when I visit SF. (I used to live there before I "knew" I had to be gluten-free)

 

And if you like Garlic, this place is great.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
