Any National Chains That Serve gluten-free Breakfast?

Any National chains that serve gluten-free Breakfast?    I'm talking real breakfast including, but not limited to gluten-free waffles or pancakes.  I hate eating breakfast out because I'm tired of being relegated to eggs and bacon while watching my loved ones down a large stack of pancakes.  I can't believe all the gluten free pizza and burger options out there and no chains have picked up on pancakes or waffles.

We can't/won't even eat anywhere for breakfast because of cross contamination issues.  A chef told us that even some oils they use for eggs/hashbrowns/bacon has gluten in it.  He offered to cook our eggs in a skillet using butter.  We felt comfortable with him, but that's rare (at least in our experience).

Some chains also use pancake batter in omelet preparation to make them fluffier.  It is written in the description so check carefully on all egg mixture breakfasts.

 

Like cyclinglady, I don't eat breakfast out or any meals out if it can be avoided.  CC issues are everywhere except in my own kitchen.

I have never seen one, but would love to know also if there is one that exist!  We have to be so very careful also with gluten-free and cross contact. But I would love a restaurant that does it right! We have a local restaurant here that does pancakes, but they are not a chain.

Waffle House (depending on the location) can be terrific. They don't have gluten-free waffles or pancakes, but will change gloves, clean the grill and use a clean pan to make eggs, bacon or sausage, and hash browns.I have never had a problem with breakfast there. I know they are not national, but that is one good thing (among many) in the South.

i have not a good opinion on waffle house, even before i was gluten-free.  cleanliness was an issue, and that's not good.  and they always mixed up/messed up orders, so i would be worried because the people preparing your food have to pay attention to all the details.  not just my local waffle house, i have been to them all over the country.  just beware and do your homework  :)

I believe that the Original Pancake House has gluten-free pancakes but they use Pamela's which has almonds in it, so not for us.  Plus I can't do dairy or eggs so they seriously have nothing for me there.  They may be a local chain.  Not sure.

I've had Waffle House several times and they have cleaned the grill and switched gloves on request - very accommodating.  But unfortunately, no pancakes.  I guess since its batter-based, they would have to worry about cross contamination.  I've heard of Original Pancake House, but unfortunately there is only one or two in Texas.  I need to buy a franchise!

My biggest concern about any b'fast out would be the cross contamination.  Breakfast anywhere is always such a rushed event.  Seems like errors would be too easy.

The only three places I have eaten breakfast out  were: a totally dedicated G F bakery/cafe in Latham,NY run by my friend Sherry Lynn, Friedman's Lunch in NYC (they are great! G F bagels and lox and cream cheese, oh my!) and a local cafe near me (Jensen Beach, FL) that

does breakfast in a skillet. G F toast from a dedicated toaster. No CC, no worries.

I wrote about all 3 on Find Me Gluten Free.

 

Someday, I dream of places that can do right by us--breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

It's coming, guys. Hold fast to the dream!

 

We do need to buy a franchise--a gluten free franchise.  :)

Hope you live close cause I'll be there on a regular basis.  I used to love b'fast out.

Going out for breakfast is a rarity but believe it or not, I go to Chick-fil-A... order a bacon/egg platter with hash browns & yogurt with strawberries (no granola) & if u ask them to change gloves, it is a safe bet. Note they don't cook anything on their grill except eggs, the hash browns are cooked in a fryer that is only shared with fries (which are also gluten-free). It's not pancakes, but it works.

I had good luck at Denny's the other day... I really miss greasy spoon diner food sometimes, but this was a decent substitute.  The eggs/omelets and hash browns were fine.  They have a pdf allegergen list on their website, and I spoke with the server before taking the plunge.  I'll admit I was scared because of the cross-contamination potential, but that was a couple of days ago... I'm feeling good.

Not fast food at all - but resorts do breakfast well. Haven't run into pancakes or waffles but I rarely out those out, anyway...

I'm excited about Chik-Fil-A being an option!

Denny's has a gluten free English Muffins now.   It's no pancake, but it's great to have an additional option on the plate from a national chain.

In case you are ever in the Orlando area the Kona Café in the Polynesian resort has WONDERFUL gluten free waffles.   They also have pancakes and French toast as well, I just haven't made it past the waffles.     I am sure they are sold on all the Disney properties serving breakfast, but I can go to the Polynesian without entering a park and without staying there so it is the only place I have had them there.

I had really good gluten-free Mickey Mouse waffles at one of the imexpensive Disney non-resort hotels on the property .  I believe it was the Doubletree.

    • Had The rash for years before I went gluten-free. My rash took about a month or two to heal and vanish. When I get glutened the rash areas start to itch a bit- besides being constipated it's my only clue! good luck and be patient 
    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   When you got the referral, you probably should have found a GI on your own by searching through the Kaiser directory and finding one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Too late, but that is kind of how it works.  Your PCP does not know the GI docs.  The scheduler just makes appointments.  So, now,  that you have been referred to a GI, you can probably schedule another appointment on your own by passing your PCP.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
    • A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back.  By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience.  I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.              
    • Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me. I cannot thank you enough. I am ever so sorry to post again here but wondered if I could check with you about this. When at work, I very rarely get chance to eat a lot and so have always been eating the Milky Way UK bars, which I believe contain gluten or barley. I usually have around 6 of these as they tide me over until getting home. I also have two slices of bread on a morning. I was wondering whether this would be sufficient as I am worried in case I haven't had enough gluten?  Thank you for everything and I wanted to apologise for being a nuisance on here.
