Celiacs In Seattle

We do have a number of members in Seattle. (I happen to be on the east side.)

Seattle's a pretty gluten-free-friendly place.

Welcome :)

I spend time in Seattle frequently during the two months of the year I am in the USA; my official address is in Lakewood.

I'll be staying in Kirkland for awhile very soon, can anyone tell me where to go for gluten-free items, and also which restaurants (preferably not the most expensive please)?

Thanks much!

Yes there are a few of us around here. Since you are new, I thought I would tell you about a store in Montlake Terrace (just North of Seattle). Most of the stuff they carry is gluten free. I make a trip there about once a month. They carry doughnuts, noodles, cookies, pizza crusts, etc. They are a bit spendy, but it's nice to know you have options for gluten free food.

Hi, I'm new to this whole celiac business. I was recently diagnosed. I was curious if there were any more people like me in the seattle area (west seattle perhaps).

I wish I would have known about this place when I lived in Seattle, but I guess its a little late now, since I am across the country.

Hi,

I'm not from Seattle but I'll be traveling there for a conference in May and could really use some suggestions on where I can get safe food. I doubt my hotel will have much... I'm staying at the Westin Seattle, 1900 5th Avenue so close to that would be preferable but any options are good. Thank you!

Most of the better restaraunts are good with gluten-free. There's also a Red Robin on the waterfront, and the cafe at the Elliot Bay bookstores sells gluten-free baked goods.

Welcome, gluten free guy! I'm in U-District.

Some of my favorite places:

Chaco Canyon Cafe (they specialize in raw food, but they have cooked food too. Always various gluten-free options. If you sign up for their e-newsletter you get announcements about their seasonal "special" dinners, which are pre-fixe course menus which are often mostly gluten-free, from appetizer to dessert.)

Flying Apron Bakery (now they got a bigger place in Fremont, lunches and salads available! Yum)

Cafe Flora (seriously good vegetarian food that doesn't seem vegetarian; they always have gluten-free options)

And last but not least, Impromptu Art & Wine Bar in Madison Park, where Daniel, "gluten free girl" Shauna's husband is the exec chef. They don't say on the menu, but pretty much everything he cooks there is gluten-free! GREAT food and wine. You can see their passion for good food from Shauna's blog, glutenfreegirl.com. The food at the restaurant is awesome.

For MN_Newbie, right across the street from Westin is Westlake Center (a mall), and in there, there is P.F. Chang's, which has a pretty good gluten-free menu. And in an earlier thread, there was a list of restaurants distributed at a GIG meeting:

I've been to Da Vinci's too, and that's a good place to go if you're craving for a sandwich or a carrot cake ;-)

Good luck!

Whole Foods market at 2210 Westlake Ave is pretty close to there, they have a lot of gluten-free stuff, the fresh bakery items are pretty good, a good variety, etc.

Hope that helps

I found out last week that I have to be gluten free and know that I am in a good city for this, but don't know all of the hot spots yet. What is the name of the place in Montlake Terrace?

Thanks for your help! :D

It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
