Hi,

I will be travelling to Downtown Toronto soon. Does anyone have any suggestions for restaurants or supermarkets in that area? When I come back I will post my results.

Hi,

There's a Whole Foods in an undergound mall called Hazelton Lanes in the Yorkville area of Toronto (right downtown, not too far from the Four Seasons hotel). There's also a farmer's market in a big building called the St. Lawrence Market. It is also downtown not too far from the Union Station subway stop plus one or two streetcar stops. (just google the market and they have directions) There's also this great place that caters to the organic/fresh food/ allergies population called The Big Carrot (on Danforth & Chesterton) in Greektown. Plus there are lots of little organic/health food stores sprinkled throughout the downtown core.

Enjoy Toronto. Bring a warm coat!

If you are shopping for food, Loblaws supermarkets tend to have a good selection of gluten-free items in their stores. They operate under other names as well, including Canadian Superstore and Zehr's. Look in the health food section. Web site with store locator: http://www.loblaws.ca/en/default.asp

The Keg is a steakhouse and seafood chain with locations across Canada. They are very accommodating, and have 12 locations in the Toronto area. Web site with location finder: http://www.kegsteakhouse.com/

Il Fornello, http://www.ilfornello.com/ has gluten-free pasta and pizza available. They understand our needs, and will boil fresh water in a clean pot to prepare gluten-free pasta. The pizza is in the same oven as the other pizza, but is baked on a clean pan. We have eaten at the Bayview Village location many times, and have also been to the one on Yonge Street near St. Clair.

At multiple locations in Ontario you will find Swiss Chalet restaurants, which feature gluten-free rotisserie chicken. http://www.swisschalet.com The chicken and dipping sauce are gluten-free, as are most salads and some side dishes.

Here's a link to the Toronto chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association, which has some useful stuff. http://www.torontoceliac.org/links/index.shtml
