Does anyone have experience in Nanaimo, BC with eating at restaurants safely or where there are good places to shop gluten free. Thanks

No experience yet but I will be going to Nanaimo in the summer/fall so let me know what you find out. I was in Vancouver and Victoria last spring and the fairmont hotels in those cities have chefs that are unbeleivably knowledgeable and accommodating. These hotels stock gluten free bread as well.

There is a Swiss Chalet there but all I ordered was a baked potato with Sour Cream. The service wasn't that great there although there was a huge group of us. Somebody called ahead and told them that there would be a big group of us so they should have put more staff on. On Swiss Chalet's website it does list the products that contain gluten.

Hi Karen I live in Nanaimo too and have found it very difficult to eat out. I will let you know if I find a good place to have a gluten free meal.
Just thought I should mention....before you eat sour cream you should check the ingredients. Some sour cream has gluten in it. I found an organic sour cream at Lifestyles in Victoria that has no additives and is not modified. Watch out for those ingredients that state they are modified. :)
