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

    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:
