gluten-free In The Poconos

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

We will be spending a week at a lake house in the Poconos later this summer with my 3 year old, who has celiac.  It will be our first time in the area.  I wondered if anyone had any store or restaurant suggestions anywhere in the area.  We are flying into Newark, and I was planning on stopping by a Whole Foods in NJ to pick up supplies on our drive up to the lake.  But I would love any insight other travelers who are more familiar with the area might have.  I haven't been able to find much online other than a pizza place in Milford, PA.

 

Thank you!!!

awwh - it's so pretty up there :)  i used to live right at the bottom of high point mountain in nj, i could throw a rock over the ny state line and the pa state line lolz - there is a nice (used to be free) beach in milford that i used to take my kids to back in the day.  they had a nice picnic area and everything.  we used to go tubing - i believe they still offer that in matamoras where they drop you off and you float back to where your car is.  also, canoeing is so fun if that's something you like.   i will be going up there next month to nj (sparta and oak ridge) to stay with my 'homies' :)  but usually take a ride up through there just for giggles.

 

anyways, you are in luck!  google mama's baci cafe in hackettstown - the food is FABULOUS the people are awesome and all their servers/cooks, etc are trained and certified (they take a course at the hackettstown hospital)  they have probably the biggest gluten free menu i have ever seen in that area and they can also accommodate other allergies like dairy i'm pretty sure.  when i go up there (or when anyone visits me down here) a visit to mama's is a must!!  their cheesesteaks are primo, and they also sell jars of sauce, pasta, etc if you wanted a lazy night dinner out of a jar.  and they also have pizza  :)

Thanks so much for your reply!  I just looked up the cafe you mentioned -- it says it's over 40 minutes away from where we will be!  I didn't realize the Poconos area was that large.  (Excuse my ignorance).  We're going to be in Dingmans Ferry, which I understand is a very small, desolate town.  Any chance you might know of anything closer to that area?  It's near Milford, PA.

 

I'm really looking forward to our vacation. I'm glad you have so much positive things to say about the area.  :)

i forget i know allll the back ways and shortcuts up there - yep i bet it's that far from dingman's.  i was thinking you would pass it while you were still on i-80.  any other place i could recommend would be even further (and something i don't trust as well) have a great trip!  and if you find any good places up there i would love to hear about them :)  not to far for a road trip from nj!  bon voyage  ^_^

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
