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

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
