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.
