Never heard of it. We had a Celiac Kids picnic last weekend and the lady from the association didn't mention it. There had been a restaurant in SW Calgary that was mostly if not all gluten free, but it shut down after about 6 months.

Finally made it there to check it out for myself last night. I had a cheese bun sandwich...A Real Sandwich that tasted like one! Definitly worth checking it out.

They gave me a business card so here is the official address.

I love A Tasty Menu! I am a single mother of three and yes we all have Celiac Disease, I eat here 2-3 times a week and find that the food and price draw me back time after time. I can ether go to the mall and have a xl combo at newyork fries or I can go to A Tasty Menu and get a wonderful soup and sandwich.
Some of our favs are Yam fries, soup, curry, pizza and cake. I didn't know how I was going to servive with three kids and no take out pizza and this solves that problem. I call them up, pick up and there is no worries about CC at all.

I will say the area is not the best and the decor is not that great but the food and the people are, and you can't beat having a meal that you don't have to worry about.

Go try you will love it.

Yes, I have actually I was there twice in two days. Their food is all made from scratch and they serve pizza and delicious chocolate cake. They have a children's menu also. Even though they are far away from me, it is worth it to drive there. There is absolutely no gluten in that restaurant. Go and enjoy it.

"A Tasty Menu" is a wonderful restaurant! They have a very vegan friendly menu as well as their gluten free fare.

Their Hours are:

Wed-Sat 11 to 8
Sunday 11 to 7
Closed Monday & Tuesday

And they are in a kinda funny location, but great if you want to shop at Shun Fat grocery store on the way there or back! (I find that I have to eat more asian foods to help cut out gluten)

Tasty Menu address is:
105-4202 17 Avenue SE
Calgary, AB, Canada
(403) 235-0031

No it won't, Lisa. I think I alone am paying their bills. I have taken four people there who have been bringing their friends and family and I have been there three times this week.

Talk about an addict.

I'm taking friends there tonight, can't wait to try it out. I saw their write up in rising women magazine.
In addition to the celiac I can't eat corn, potatoes, coconut and a whole bunch of other things which make most "gluten free" foods totally out for me. But when I called to make the reservation it sounds like I'll have no trouble eating there!!!!!!!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm pizza I miss pizza

Don't let the exterior fool you! My boy's loved it! " This is better than McDonalds" says my 11 year old!

Sweet potatoe fries! Cheese bun hamburgers! Pepperoni Pizza for my 6 year old... and the chocolate cake sitting on the counter looks like a " repeat visit" waiting to happen!

Prices were awesome!

happy happy!

My husband and I ate there yesterday. It was great. It is a seedy area of the city, but I don't care. It was the first time I didn't have to study a menu for 30 minutes trying to figure out which item would harm me the least.
I was so excited I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! I didn't know what to order--I wanted to try everything.

For the past 2 years, I have watched my husband eat grilled chicken sandwiches and fries in just about every restaurant in this city. Now, finally, I could have that. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with yam fries, and he had the burger and fries. (I ate some of his fries, too) The food was excellent, the prices are very low.

A wonderful experience. We are going back today!

Support this restaurant!!
