Yelp has a gluten free section that can help you find places - but check the reviews to see what people have actually said about them, of course. :)

Flying Apron bakery is in Fremont.

Chaco Canyon Cafe is in the U District, not too far away.

Cafe Flora is just south of the arboretum, and pricey, but I hear it's quite good.

Pizza Pi in the U District also have gluten-free (and CF) pizza.

Whole Foods, of course, has lots of gluten free options, even in their food bars, if you're ok with those.

Yelp and Google will find you a bunch more. It's not too hard to find places in the area that can meet your needs around here. (I'm on the eastside, and tend to favor Thai Ginger or a local, small sushi place.)

I'm heading to Seattle proper in a couple weeks. Know anything good there? I don't always trust yelp because I'm super sensitive, and have had glutenings after ordering off of gluten-free menus even after talking extensively with what seemed like very knowledgeable managers. ...and I don't have other foods that do that to me. So, no food bars, etc for me! =)

If anyone has any trusted restaurants in that neighborhood, I'd love to hear about them!

The ones I listed are ones I particularly trust.

Flying Apron is entirely gluten free (aside from a few items they make with gluten free oats which are plainly labeled).

Chaco Canyon is a primarily vegan/raw food place, so while they have bread on the premises, they are all quite knowledgeable about the basic ingredients making up all of their foods. (And it's plainly listed on the menu.)

Cafe Flora is a fancy, limited menu, restaurant that is also well known for the chef being very aware of gluten issues (and other food allergy issues).

Ditto for Pizza Pi, though again it is a shared facility, they're focus is on vegan offerings, and they stay quite aware of what's in their food.

(The "funky food" places tend to be more aware because there are ingredients that they want to avoid for various reasons.)

There are a couple other places mostly dedicated to gluten free - DaVinci's changed it's name (Wheatless In Seattle?), I think, and there's a bakery down in Kent and one in Maple Valley (but there's no need for the half hour drive if you're in Seattle proper). Google will help direct you to those places that specialize in gluten free as well.

Edit: I realize there might be some confusion as you said "Seattle proper". All the places I listed ARE in Seattle - those are the neighborhoods of Seattle. If you mean downtown Seattle, then you're in a spot where Yelp reviews are what you'll have to rely on. There isn't as wide a range of options downtown as in other places, but there are a few. (There's a Thai fusion place under the convention center... can't think of the name of it at the moment.)

Thanks. By Seattle proper I did mean the city downtown, but since I don't know how the neighborhoods work, I didn't realize all of those were Seattle. I will have a car, so I don't mind driving a bit. =) These places look great. I'll definitely try the Flying Apron and probably Cafe Flora. I saw mixed reviews about Wheatless in Seattle, but I may check it out because I can. After spending some time on google and yelp, there seem to be quite a lot of options. I generally don't trust chains like Outback, because you never know from day to day or city to city who will be working there!

    • I actually looked into growing my own, I hear they grow GREAT on coffee grounds. Issues is all starting seeds, and spore batches EVERYWHERE are on rye, wheat, and barely seeds. LITERALLY, the standard for growing them is planting the spores on gluten containing grains. Check yourself on this, while mentioned in several articles the gluten protein is not in the grown mushroom cap/plant. If anything I might have issues with gluten at the base or stalk in which case playing it safe by just harvesting the caps and washing them would be good. I just wish they would use something like buckwheat, rice, sorgum, etc for a seed to put the spores on........I know it is paranoia just saying. Side note I have had no issues with the last 7 batches of mushrooms I have purchased, I even tried the overly sensitive nima on a batch of them blended with a smiley, and these where unwashed ones. SO yes it is a hit and miss thing. I found some brands have never given me issues like a few local portabellos, and polar canned. While others from a local farm got me twice with the bella mushrooms.   As to Gemini response, yes I have the same issues with certain foods always making me sick......olives, peanuts, pork, few others, No logical reason I just very sick and start puking violently when I eat them.    I will admit sometimes things make me sick in weird ways almost like gluten but not. Hell last time I spent 4 days on a elimination diet just ot learn it was the oddest things, a batch of rancid almond butter was doing it. I thought it was just overly roasted but fact was it was just starting to go rancid. I know this was not gluten by day 2 as I analyzed the effects which were a little different.  
    • Hi Mermaid's Mom I used to always feel very hot and found it very difficult living in a hot country, which I did a few years ago.   Since my diagnosis and adopting a gluten free diet I've felt cold in a way I never have before.  I don't know if it is a coincidence, but it seems to me a bit too much of a coincidence! I think the first port of call is to check if your daughter has a thyroid issue.   I assumed that was my problem but the TSH and T4 tests say things are good, but my friends on this forum say I need to have other levels looked at so possibly I do have a problem lurking. Problem is that here in the UK it is difficult to have 'a full thyroid panel' under the National Health Service.  If you can get one for your daughter it would be worth a try, I'm sure.    
    • So 3+ weeks gluten-free.  She is on B12 weekly injections, iron and magnesium supplements. She has ALWAYS run hot.  Never - literally never cold. I noticed that she is now sleeping in socks and a hoodie.  Every night. Now during the day she has more than a few times said she is freezing. Now I have ALWAYS been a freezing person.  The only one -everyone else in the family runs hot but me.  I am abnormally cold.  But even I am not cold when she says she is?? Any thoughts?
    • Knowing my luck, the fish would get Celiac disease and I'd have to stop eating them too!!! lolol   Thanks.......
    • You can try some basic tips: Eat a high-protein breakfast. Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. Drink water a half hour before meals. Choose weight loss-friendly foods. Eat soluble fiber. Drink tea. Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods. Eat your food slowly. Don't be so upset. A lot of people don't receive results when they just start their diet. As for that was the same when I started my diet, I start losing weight on the third month. I try to avoid some food and especially coffee I threw away coffee from my life. So I drink only tea, I bought special Tea here. I think you can try it too. Keep going!
