Gluten-free Restaurants In Lancaster, Pa
0

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.

    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
