Gluten Free In Estes Park Colorado
Posted 06 March 2012 - 12:06 PM
Many Estes Park restaurants offer gluten free options. Most do not offer the printed gluten-free menus common in franchise restaurants. This makes it a bit more difficult to discover which restaurants are safest and what to order from the menu. Some input from the gluten free community would be helpful, especially if the wait staff on duty that day is not up to speed.
While Poppy's Pizza ad Grill and Mama Rose's Homemade Italian are my favorites so far, I have also eaten safely at Village Pizza and the Stanley Hotel. Several others have said they can feed me and I will add other posts as I try them out. My next venture is Notchtop Bakery & Cafe.
Poppy's serves a gluten free "pizza" which substitutes shredded zucchini in place of crust. (Actually quite good as well as healthy -- I had my doubts before trying it.) Of the 5 sauces, I prefer the traditional marinara. All toppings except vegetarian pepperoni are gluten free -- even the sausage! However, it is always smart to check for updates or substitutions.
We ate at Mama Rose's for Christmas dinner (with 9 people). The gluten free pasta (not made in house, but very good), makes holiday meals much more festive -- because I get as good a meal as everyone else.
READERS -- If you have one favorite Estes Park restaurant, or know of several options, please contribute that information here. In a tourist based economy, there are always people looking for this information. If you live here or are visiting Estes Park, I hope the information will be helpful.

There is also another place that has a breakfast bar which includes gluten-free cereal, but I cannot remember the name.
We rented a cabin so we could cook our own food, and we ate our lunches in RMNP.

Individuals using a gluten free or wheat free diet are getting together for dinner (Feb. 6, 2012 @ 6:00pm). We will meet at Poppy's Pizza and Grill to trade ideas on HOW to be gluten free. What works for you? How do you explain? etc. etc. Anyone interested in joining us?
