I didn't have much luck in SF other than two places.  One is the Mariposa Bakery located in the Ferry Bldg.  It's in the Embarcadero District on the bay.  The entire bakery is gluten free.  The other place is called Pier 21 - it's also on the bay.  Not a great location for kids, but they do have burger and fries, so maybe you could order to go.  It's more of a sports bar.  I was very discouraged, but my husband walked in there, told them what we were looking for, and walked out with the manager who wanted to meet me. She has been eating gluten free for years.  That place was a life saver for me.  Several places along the bay actually told me that I should move out of line because they didn't have anything for me.  I was dumbfounded and disappointed.  Good luck, and if you find something, please post it as I'm in SF a few times per year.

Mariposa has 2 locations - Ferry Bldg & the edge of Berkley.  You can get bakery stuff & sandwiches.  We had good luck with IN & Out burgers.  There are all the usual chains.

If you want to visit Pacifica (lovely coastal town about 12 miles south of SF), The Surf Spot is an excellent place for gluten free dining.  They are closed on Mondays.  I know you specified no pizza, but they do make an awesome gluten-free pizza in addition to other lovely foods and desserts, and gluten free rolls made in-house.  There is an outdoor area in the back of the restaurant, with a volleyball court and a grass area where kids can run and play, if you don't want to sit indoors.

 

In Half Moon Bay you can eat at Fish and Frites, on Main Street.  I was so excited to be able to have real fish and chips, all gluten free.  They use a rice based batter for the gluten-free version, and a dedicated fryer.  You have a choice of fish, fresh from the fishing boats at Pillar Point Harbor. (and it's two shops away from a really cute toy store...)

 

I don't eat in SF very often, but San Francisco is a very gluten free friendly city.  Many restaurants have gluten-free menus and vegetarian, vegan, etc options as well.  As long as you aren't craving clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, you should have little trouble finding places to eat.  

 

The Find Me Gluten Free app is a good resource for safe restaurants.  

 

I hope your trip is great and healthy!

Also, I second the Mariposa Bakery.  Their gluten-free cinnamon rolls are eye-rolling, stop what you are doing and enjoy them, tasty.

I'll third Mariposa Bakery....my kids love their chocoloate pumpkin muffins and just about everything else we have had from there.

 

The Bay Area is awesome for gluten-free dining -- try checking the find me gluten free website or app -- should find lots of options where sillyaks have left safe/not safe details.

 

Have a great trip :)

We went to Fog Harbor, The Daily Grill and Sausalito's Crab House and Prime Rib. I was able to find something gluten-free at each one. I do suggest these restaurants. The best was Nordstrom Cafe. The best service and they really cared. I hope this helps someone else on their gluten-free journey in SF. Also the Mariposa Bakery was good for bread and rolls. Yumm. :)

Its a bit spendy, more of a date place than a family placce. But the Stinking Rose has always been my stop when I visit SF. (I used to live there before I "knew" I had to be gluten-free)

 

And if you like Garlic, this place is great.

    • It's unfair to make such a general statement about ER's and hospitals.  Unfortunately, I've been to the ER several times and hospitalized three times in the past few years.  The staff took me seriously when I told them I had celiac.  Popsicles and drinks were checked for gluten, and a good laugh took place when a nurse came in to remove the cheesecake that was brought to me when the staff found out it was our anniversary. Dietary services were called and Lucy's gluten free cookies were given to me instead. Once admitted to the hospital, a dietician was sent to my room to discuss meals and she checked back with me a couple of times.  The only mistake made was the dairy free protein shakes that were delivered daily and left untouched.  When dietary called my room to ask why I wasn't drinking them, my husband had to inform them to read the label as it was clearly labeled containing milk products.

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
    • When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not.    Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers
