We haven't found any restaurant with a gluten-free menu, but DiFebo's has offered to cook gluten-free pasta for us if we bring it in.

There's also a nice little health food store in Bethany Beach called Wholesome Habits (Route 1, Beach Plaza 302-537-0567) that has a very good selection of gluten-free items.

I work in bethany-at Bethany Blues BBQ- Not a whole lot of gluten-free on the menu but you can get ribs w/o sauce, mashers, greens, corn (on cob only) kids chix fingers (grilled-no breading), etc etc. (bring your own bbq sauce and salad dressing if you want) there is also an outback in rehobeth, de, as well as many crab houses (yum! and gluten-free) in the area. I did go to mancini's in fenwick island de, they have wonderful italian food (which i miss) and they made me one of their specialties on a bed of spinach in place of pasta. Oh, there is a new gluten-free coffee shop in the "shops of fenwick island" called Too Life-gluten-free smoothies coffee, snacks and a small but wonderful gluten-free shop. the owners there have been gluten-free for alot longer than me and would probably have more suggestions on gluten-free dining in the area. oh-have fun and if you do stop by for BBQ, see if i'm working I'd be able to point you to more gluten-free items on the menu. melissa :D

I just got back from Bethany Beach!

It was a VERY Celiac-friendly vacation spot. Too Life in Fenwick Island was wonderful - I'm so lucky that I literally stumbled upon it my second day there. Not only was I able to get a yummy gluten-free beverage, but I also picked up some muffins from Mr. Ritts while I was there. They also pointed me in the right direction for restaurants - The Big Easy (which is right across from Sea Colony, where I stayed) is a great place for Celiacs. The owner's family are all Celiacs! They can even do a special breading with gluten-free flour if you call ahead!

I too went to Di Febo's (sp?) and they were quite accomodating.

I was pleasantly surprised with Bethany Beach, and I must admit I was skeptical about going on vacation, going out to eat, and staying gluten-free. I'll definitely go back :D

I had just started a new thread in the dinning out section about a week ago telling everyone about to life and the big easy. Too bad you didn't see it before you went, but the fact that you stumbled on it is fantastic. :D Aren't the owners great? Super nice people!! I think their shop will get better and better as time goes on. Since they are so new they wern't stocked up on alot of things, but said they will be soon. While we were there they were even serving homade waffles for breakfast. :P:D

It's nice to know we can go more and more places and have great experiences!!

The last 2 vacations I have been on, have been gluten-free fantastic!!

Now...does anyone know of anywhere in Cape May New Jersey that's gluten-free?

Wendy,

It is really funny that I found this website and these posts after my vacation, but I do feel lucky for To Life. The owners were incredibly nice, and they had waffles the one morning I was there too! I'm a coffee-a-holic, but I usually stick with plain, black coffee, but at To Life I got a mocha latte with no fear! The owners said they had only been in business for 7 weeks and that they plan to start carrying sandwiches soon. I hope they have great luck!

Hi Lauren,

I know...Wow!

Can you even imagine? Eating out in restaurant and getting to order a SANDWICH? Unbelievable! :blink::lol::D

I might even be worth a day trip to the beach (I'm about 2-1/2 or 3 hours away) just to get one. :D

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
