Gluten Free Stores In Lethbridge And Calgary Alberta

2 posts in this topic

I'm going to be traveling to Alberta in a few weeks to check out Lethbridge as I'm planning on moving there for school next fall. As well as visiting family in Calgary. I was wonder what stores in these cities have a good selection of gluten free foods. Also any recommendations of restaurants that provide gluten free meals is greatly appreciated! Thanks for the help!

Hi there!

In Calgary you need to check out the BEST gluten free bakery in Canada

"G.F. Patisserie". They are located in Cochrane and make artisan breads, cupcakes, brownies. My non-gluten-free family loves their products. You can find them on the web and become friends with them on FACEBOOK. The husband blogs about gluten-free friendly restaurants and his blog is "The Celiac Husaband". I don't miss bread anymore because of this bakery! They are open Wednesday to Saturday and I always fax, e-mail or send a Facebook message with my order. The products freeze well, so I buy in bulk. I never freeze the cupcakes because they get eaten quickly! :)

Now for easy delicious meals that you can buy frozen to heat up in five minutes, "Simple Simon Meals". They are located at the Calgary Farmers Market. They make the best Sheppards pie. I buy these in bulk and I'm set for lunch. If you have other issues like to dairy, nuts, soy...there is "Copper Pot Creations" and they make gluten-free meals as well. We have Planet Organic, The Water Purified Store near Sunridge Mall, Amaranth, Superstore, Safeway and Super Walmart are carrying more and more products. Costco is also doing a better job getting gluten-free products.

Calgary restaurants: Oriental Palace - you open the menu and they star all items that can be made gluten-free. 1 in 5 people who go to the Oriental Palace is Celiac. Try the lemon chicken. Yum! The Wildernest Dream Cafe in Inglewood is a great breakfast and lunch spot, and the owner is awesome. You can have gluten-free Patisserie toast with your breakfast. Chianti's in the NE does pasta and they have gluten-free bread. The staff is knowledgable. Check out the Calgary Celiac Association site because they have a whole listing of gluten-free Restaurants here in Calgary and Lethbridge.

Lethbridge: The new Swiss Chalet can make you gluten-free fries with your meal and I ate at the Cheesecake Cafe and the food was good. Have a blast at the U of L. I'm taking my masters there and I am so happy that I picked them for this journey.

I hope this is helpful!

Many smiles,
