Gluten-free Restaurants In Lancaster, Pa

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone! My mom has celiac disease, and I just wanted to post some information about restaurants in Lancaster, PA, in case anyone is nearby and is interested.

Carr's Restaurant, which is in downtown Lancaster, is SUPER-ACCOMMODATING!! My mom knows the owners, and they go out of their way to accommodate celiac. They have extremely delicious food...and even have a stand at Central Market, where you can buy dinners to go!

Fiorentino's Restaurant, which serves Italian fare, is located on the outskirts of Lancaster...once again, my mom knows the owners, and they are also awesome. They have really good salads...and a lot of dishes feature risotto, which celiacs can eat!!

Also at Central Market...we now have a gluten-free baker! He makes quiche, breads, dinner rolls, and YUMMY pastries--cream puffs, eclairs, cupcakes, pies, cakes, etc...he will even make a special birthday cake for you!! You can hardly tell his stuff is gluten-free...it's so good!! I will post his information, which I am sorry to say I don't have on hand right now. The stand is called The gluten-free Bake Shop, and he is at Market on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. He only has quiche on Tuesdays, and he has a larger selection of pastries on the weekend.

Hope this helps someone!

Take care, and happy holidays!

I am from Lancaster, PA as well. You mentioned Central Market. There is now a stand called This Little Piggy which make baby food up to todder/kid meals. She has gluten free versions of the toddler/kid meals. She also takes special orders if your child has special dietary needs such as a need for gluten and dairy free.

I just wanted to update this discussion. The Gluten Free baker at Central Market is gone. But there is a new stand called Blue Bandana and they sell fresh gluten free breads and muffins. Also Willow Valley has a stand and they have a freezer section of gluten free products.

Also I went to Yoders in New Holland( in Lancaster Co.) and had a wonderful meal! I called ahead and talked with a manager about the foods on the buffet and she gave me a long list of things I could eat and she also told me a few things to stay away from like their Bake Potatoes apparently they treat/flavor them with something that is not gluten free.

There's a nice little restaurant called Effie Ophelia which is also very accomodating. What was really nice was when I asked the waitress if the dessert I was considering had any "flour" - (I find it is easier to use the word flour than gluten to get my point across), and she replied, "Oh, you mean gluten? No, it does not have any gluten ingredients." That's always a good clue that the staff and chef know what they are doing. It is a bit pricey but they use fresh local ingredients and everything was excellent. I think it is on Prince Street.

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
             
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.
