Gluten-Friendly Restaurants In Estes Park, Co

Recommended Posts

We stayed in Estes Park for a couple of days last week. There are a couple of gluten-friendly restaurants in Estes Park, and we had good experiences with both of them.

Poppy's Pizza offers a gluten-freen pizza. The crust is made from zucchini. Roger had a pepperoni and canadian bacon pizza and said it was great!

Mama Rosa's offers gluten-free pasta for most of its dishes. You cannot get the lasagna gluten-free, but Roger selected a baked pasta dish, and again, pronounced it a great meal.

We also enjoyed some ice cream at one of the three ice cream shops on the main drag. They were very gracious about putting the ice cream in a dish instead of a cone.

There is also a place with a cereal bar where you can select your milk (soy, almond, etc.) and can select a gluten-free cereal. There was also another pizza place, but I cannot remember the name.

We rented a cabin with a full kitchen, so I could cook a safe breakfast for Roger before we headed out to do some hiking. We even brought the gluten-free toaster along with us. The Safeway grocery store had several gluten-free items on its shelves, even saw gluten-free waffles in the freezer section!

The only trouble we had was finding safe places to eat while out on the interstates. We ended up using our GPS (duh!) to help locate restaurants while on the road, and I spent a lot of time buried in my Blackberry looking up places on the internet. All in all, it was a good trip, the very first major trip we have made since Roger's diagnosis.
