Every Thing Was Gluten Free!

Recommended Posts

i had an appt. in boise yesterday (2 1/2 hours away) while there, we checked out a new store that has been opened up by a mother of celiac twins that goes to the same ped gi we do. EVERTHING in her store was gluten free----no label reading required. even though the store was small, i have never seen so many different gluten free products in one place. i am so excited about this place----i just wish it wasn't so far away for us. this is also the first time i have talked to anyone else that has twins with celiac. (her husband also has celiac) they are also having a kids celiac support group meeting tonight, but it is too far for us to drive on a school night---i really wish we could go. maybe they will have some this summer that we can attend.

the store is called "Jake's Place"---named after one of her celiac boys (who also is diabetic)

On State Street and Glenwood in Boise Idaho there is a place that makes gluten free pizza called pizzalchik. Usually they like you to call in advance to make sure they have gluten free dough ready to go. They are very careful about cross contamination and make a good healthy gluten free pizza. They also make gluten free cheesecakes.

I too will be visiting family in Boise this summer, so if I get the info correctly, it is Jake's Place in Meidian Idhao......? Any possibility of more definitive address? Also, is there a bakery in Boise area or someplace to buy ready made baked goods, ie bread so I don't have to haul stuff with me or buy ingredients and have to bake there. Thanx.

I would be heading to Cedar City Utah, but unfortunatley we had to cancel the trip. But I did get to go to a gluten free store in Vancouver, WA. It was fantastic!

This is an old post but I recently found the store too. Its still there right next to the big red barn. Uncle Ron, sorry I can't answer your Q???. There is a store in downtown Nampa for some gluten free foods but I have never been there. Do you ever go to the Boise Co-Op? It has some things. Do you know of any other places in Treasure Valley?? I wish we had a Traders and a Whole Foods. :(

Christine if you are still around lets chat. I have a daughter 17 today :) and a daughter in Boise thats almost 20 and Christina is her name B) . Pizzalchik is in the phone book, 7330 W. State. Thanks for the info, I will be sure to tell my daughter :D She will love the cheesecake and a new place to eat with her college friends! I will for sure take my 17 yr old too!

Something else. I just called them and Pizzalchik has roasted chicken too. A 12" cheese gluten-free pizza is 10 bucks. Call several hours ahead of time to preorder the pizza. Not "fast food" ;) They still have cheesecake.

Wow, another Idahoan on the forum! Thats great, I'm mostly a lurker but have been to Jakes Place numerous times. Its great to have a store that you know everything is safe to eat in. Did you also know that just down the road (going west) is a restaurant that serves gluten free pizza and pasta? Its Louie's Italian Restaurant and its *really* good. They don't have a gluten free kitchen, but they are well aware of cross contamination issues and my mother and I have never had a problem there, they are very careful. Its not exactly cheap, but its yummy and you don't have to call ahead of time.

Wow, that's great. I will tell my daughter. She is only mildly allergic so that's perfect. Thanks :D My husband used to eat at Louie's years ago. I think there is one in Sun Valley but I have never been there. Where are you from?

I live in Emmett, its a small town so I have to do most of my shopping in Meridian/Boise. I guess you could say I'm pretty much asymptomatic when it comes to gluten so unless I eat it every day all day I can't tell I've gotten into something. My mom is very sensitive though and has eaten at Louie's a lot and has never had a problem. They even brought her out a new dessert on the house to try out for them so I know they are trying to enhance their gluten-free menu. Its really good food too, and its right on the menu that they can make almost anything gluten free. Louie's is one of the only places my whole family is able to eat at because we have some picky eaters! Red Robin is the other place we can all go since they make their fries gluten-free. Yum!

Where are you from? Its rare that I see/hear about anyone from Idaho with Celiac.

Born and raised in Caldwell and moved to Garden Valley 7 yrs ago. Been thru Emmett many times. Great info THANKS! I get my gluten-free stuff at the Boise Co-op. Have you ever been there? It is a bit cheaper than Jakes. But you have to look for it where as Jakes its all there right in front of you. My daughter usually eats at Chapala's but its not gluten-free. She just orders carefully. I called Pizzalchik. There web is Pizzalchik.com. They don't list gluten-free items on it though.

I do shop at the Co-Op once in awhile. I haven't lately just because we haven't been down in that area for awhile. Its such a toss up because Jake's is all gluten free but more expensive and the Co-Op is a bit cheaper and I get a discount there with my BSU Student card but the parking is horrible and its always packed inside. I'm not going to complain though, I'm just glad we have a few places to shop around here!
