Cape Cod Ma - Pizza Place And Also A Bed & Breakfast
0

4 posts in this topic

I went to Cape Cod in Massachusetts to get married yesterday. The wedding was very small and was held on the beach in Dennis.

Because I hadn't searched for many gluten-free restaurants beforehand, we went to BZ's afterwards for pizza. They get their gluten-free pizza crusts from Good Ju Ju Bakery. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the whole gluten-free thing. Their gluten-free pizzas are made in a separate area of the kitchen and I did not get sick! Most of their specialty toppings can be done on the gluten-free crust (I'd avoid the chicken tenders or alfredo sauce toppings). I had the Medditeranean (sliced tomatoes, black olives, red onions, green peppers, feta, marinara sauce and mozzarella) and it was AWESOME! The taste and texture would be similar to a chewy crunchy thin pizza crust. The toppings were perfectly done. My mother in law had the same gluten-free pizza and she couldn't tell the difference from a gluten pizza.

The restaurant is a very causal and relaxed place (think of plastic cutlery, paper plates, plastic cups and sports on tv). The waitress was very friendly and prompt with the drinks, food and refills. I'm going there more often when I move closer to the cape!

We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast called Brewster By The Sea. The room was nice, cozy and clean. They left fresh flowers picked from their garden in our room and turned down the bed and left mints for us. They have a pool, hot tub, lovely yard and offer massages. We had breakfast prepared on site this morning and mine was gluten-free. A family with a young girl that has Celiac stays there each year and the owners of the Bed & Breakfast purchase gluten-free things for her from a local gluten-free bakery, so they know how to treat us Celiacs! We had started the meal with fresh fruit, then were served a yummy lemon sorbet. For the main course we were served an amazing vegetable frittata, sausage (best I've ever had), gluten-free biscuits for me and of course tasty coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. I left feeling very full and didn't have one single problem with gluten while staying here.

I'd definitely recommend a stay at this Bed and Breakfast, they are such nice people and their home is well maintained and comfortable. They think of everything and even gave us a little bag with a bottle of lavender oil and other goodies. They really took care of us!

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
