Mimi's Cafe

Hi everyone!

I went to Mimi's earlier tonight and they had a great gluten free menu/information page. The hostess printed it out for me before we were seated, and in reading it, they give great suggestions to avoid CC and are willing to cut fruit or saute things in a separate pan.

I would post it on here, but it's a 4 or 5 page PDF file. You can however, email them and ask for them to email it to you. I got a quesadilla with corn tortillas instead of flour and so far I have had no side effects (usually get a nasty headache within 30 minutes of being glutened)

Hope this helps if there is a Mimi's in your area!!!

Liz-

Thanks for that tip.

I trust nobody about food, except my wife and just a few restaurants.

I think I can trust the chili and french fries at Wendys.

Also trust the In-N-Out Burger hamburger (w/o bun) and french fries.

I now trust Mimi's and Outback as it seems they understand the definition of gluten-free.

I have rant though. It seems almost all restaurant workers I've run across (aside from the above) are clueless about gluten. I tell them I can't have any gluten and they do crap like bring me a salad with croutons :angry:

Regards Mark

I've never heard of Mimi's Cafe before so I went on their website. They are opening one near my house!! I'm so excited! They will be near Cheeseburger in Paradise and Biaggi's - both are very gluten friendly. Oh now I'll have a greater choice of restaurants to go to :D !

Thanks for letting us know this Liz!

I think Wendy's took their french fries off their gluten-free list. There was a post on here a few weeks back about it. You might want to double check.

Hey Mark- I am not sure the fries at Wendy's are safe, sometimes in the past I would get nuggets mixed in with fries and vice versa (pre-celiac) Something to look into.

I think that some Wendy's have dedicated fryers, while others don't. You need to ask at each location.

Hi Liz,

I live in the Raleigh-Durham area too, where is the Mimi's? I've never been there. Have you been to Carraba's, they have a great gluten-free menu too. Boy I wish I knew within 30 minutes of being "contaminated", as I like to call it... it hits me about a day and a half to 2 days later! Then I suffer for almost a week.

Thanks for the info!

I live in California...there is a Mimi's Cafe about 10 minutes from me. They have been very accomodating and we eat there once or twice a month. I have never gotten sick after eating there....I wish we had some of the other restaurants you mentioned though

Well, the good news is that Mimi's opened up near my house. The bad news is they're not offering a gluten-free menu :angry: ! With Cheeseburger in Paradise and Biaggios in the same shopping center and both offering gluten-free menus, you'd think they'd follow suit <_< ! Well, I'm going to write a letter to the manager to complain!!

Do that for sure, because I initially went to their website and inquired through there. They replied to me with a pretty big pdf file about what to avoid and not. Maybe the manager is uninformed :(

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
