Awesome Time In Kauai!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone- I just got back from the island of Kauai in, HI and wanted to share what a wonderful, gluten-free friendly place we found it to be. Most of our time was spent on the east and north-sides of the island which are much less touristy than the south of the island (where all the big resorts are), but so much to do and so much to eat! Nearly every restaurant we went to had a gluten free menu and we found gluten-free baked goods at multiple coffee shops that we randomly wandered into. We also found two different cute little natural foods stores where we stalked up on gluten-free items for the days we dined-in at our timeshare. We did two organized tours-- a snorkeling trip and a kayak/hike to a waterfall and both included gluten free sandwiches for lunch as an option. Kauai in general is gorgeous- lots of non-touristy and relatively crowd-free beaches, good hiking, snorkeling, etc.. I still can not get over what a wonderful surprise it was to find so many gluten-free options available everywhere. Yay, vacation success!!

The national Tropical Botanical Garden area is beautiful too. They filmed part of Jurassic Park there.

Been working on Kauai again and today went to  Sweet Maries Restaurant in Lihue.  Great gluten free menu. Marie Cassel is Celiac and only serves gluten-free foods and baked goods. She is well known for brownies and muffins which are sold all over the island. 

I had polenta in marinara sauce which was               all home made and amazingly good.
