Door County, Wisconsin

6 posts in this topic

In a couple of weeks we are going to Door County for a few days. I have been there the past few years, but that was before being gluten-free.

Any restaurant suggestions?

One thing that depresses me is that my favorite thing about Door County is the cherry pie and all the homemade pastries..and I am going to have to miss out on those from now on.

I know I saw that the Mission restaurant has a gluten-free menu, which is awesome, since it is my favorite restaurant there, but it is also very pricey, and this trip we will be trying to eat more cheaply.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, child-friendly too =)

Thanks!!

Sorry I don't have any restaurant suggestions... just wanted to put in my two cents about Wisconsin (which is where I grew up, although I've never been to Door County).

For a celiac... especially if you're a person like me who doesn't drink alcohol or eat cheese... the food situation in Wisconsin is generally BAD. Have you thought about finding a cabin or hotel room with a kitchen? I know it's not as relaxing to cook your own food, but it's definitely safe (and cheap). Then all you have to worry about is finding a grocery store and bringing a few basic cooking utensils... cutting board, knife, frying pan, a couple of pots... a George Foreman grill can be pretty versatile ;) I could easily live off grilled meat, salad, and fresh fruit for several days.

actually as I said I have been to Door County before and it is anything but the stereotypical beer, brat and cheese place. It is much classier than that :) Think the 'cape cod of the Midwest', many nice restaurants and local food. Not a fast food place or chain in site.

Honestly, I gave had much gluten-free success here in Wisconsin, including an amazing meal at my favorite Indian restaurant in Milwaukee last night after a trip to the Whole Foods gluten-free section of the bakery :)

Wow... obviously I'm not from a "classy" part of Wisconsin. Good luck with your trip to tourist-land.

I apologize, I didn't mean to come off as offensive at all :(

I am actually living in Kenosha right now. i lived in Chicago for 7 years, and we just moved here...and I get a lot of flack from my friends about how I am in the boonies, etc.... So, I can be quick to defend the state :) I mean sure there are areas where finding gluten-free would be difficult as it would be in any state, and then areas that are more trendy that have more current food needs as in any other state as well.

Thankfully Door County is not uber touristy or cheesy, but happens to be a very nice place for a close getaway :)

Again, i apologize.

We had a horrible experience trying to eat gluten-free in Door County. Moral of the story pack food and bring it with you in a cooler LOL.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
