4 posts in this topic

Hi guys I will be vacationing with my family in Breckenridge, Colorado in a couple of weeks and I was wondering if anyone out there is familiar with restaurants in that town that can accomodate my Celiac daughter. e leave for Breck on Jan 14th. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Tica :)

Hi Tica -

I do not know of any in Breckenridge per se. I know this question came up last Winter/Spring as well so do a search.

Here is a link to a previous thread with one restaurant idea:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=40300

I will let you know, in Silverthorne (you would need a car to get there) there is a place called the Sunshine Cafe. In my pre-gluten-free days I used to love eating there when I was in the mountains. Back in November as my Dad and I kicked off the ski season we decided to stop there. I figured I would gamble and worse case order a naked burger or something.

While waiting for our table I talked to (I believe the owner) and asked if they had a gluten-free menu, he said not yet, but they are working on getting one together sometime Q1 2009.

We sat down to eat and everyone there is always really nice, the server was very helpful as I decided to order the enchiladas. She was able to confirm the green chile that came on them was made with no gluten ingredients and the corn tortillas were gluten-free as well as the chicken or chorizo options.

I love Mexican food so that's why I went for this option. Based on certain events in my life I do not guarantee that this stuff was in fact gluten-free, but they are aware of what being gluten-free is and are willing to check on ingredients.

Good luck and have a safe trip. The mountians are getting some good snow today, hopefully it will continue so your trip will be perfect.

Thanks so much for the link. We had already planned on going to City Market upon our arrival to Breckenridge.

I was glad to see that Mi Casa has a gluten-free menu. We'll be sure to go there one night.

I don't know how helpful this will be but when we were last year we went to a restaurant where one of the waitresses was a celiac. (Of couse, I don't know if she is still there). She wsa very helpful, the food was good, and I didn't have any problems.

Of course, I can't remember the name of the restaurant but it is on the main street of Breckenridge on the lower level of the building. I think it may be a man's name, like Bob's, or something. The restaurant has lots of old signs on the walls from the businesses that have gone out of business in the town over the years. Maybe someone familiar with Breck knows the name of the place.

I just googled and I think it is Downstairs at Eric's. downstairsaterics.com

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
