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 had the gluten free bun this weekend in North Houston and I was pleasantly surprised.  Its surely not the BEST gluten-free bun I've ever had but it emulated the original Chick-fil-A bun fairly well.  The bun is the biggest gluten-free I've ever had, however.   I know they do prepare the meal separately and bring you the buns in a plastic bag and I had no reactions but I've been eating at Chick-fil-A for a while and always had good luck there (before it was just the grilled chicken nuggets).     It was nice feeling me and my oldest son enjoying a relatively normal fast food meal together with the rest of the family.  
    • Hi .there. I'm so tired of feelig like absolute poo every day! I'm 21 and I have horrible skin, mucous in my stool, extreme stomach upset and fatigue every day! I get confused, spacey, lightheaded, dizzy, irritable feelings constantly it seems. My whole body always hurts. And my joints. If im not constipated, I have diarrhea. Gas. Bloating. Itchy rashy bumpy skin. Plus I'm always hungry it seems.     Please tell me I'm on to figuring wth is wrong with me  celiac isnt good it is a horrible diagnosis but I just need some answers. . Can I have your opinions please?  Thanks! I dont know if my photos are going to work   .  Hopefully they do... :-/   
    • I tested positive on the antibody test, declining kidney function being what I had gone to a naturopath for.  I did not want to do the endoscopy, so did a trial of the gluten free diet.  I felt like a truck hit me for about a month, like a bad flu coming on, as tons of inflammation left my body. I was not terribly overweight, but lost it all in that month, dropping 30 lbs, and ended up looking emaciated after. I also did the DNA test, which only says if you have the potential for it, and that was positive. After 2 years I've now gained back muscle and bone and look healthy and fit for my height, and I'm 60 years old.  I have an official Celiac's diagnosis from a naturopath doctor based on the blood test, DNA test, and response to the gluten free diet.  Lots of docs think Celiacs is a totally intestional disease and disregard it unless you have all the diarrhea and underweight symptoms. I had NONE of that.  Oh, and on my last test, kidneys came back from 40% functionality to just basely into the normal range.  :o)  Good luck.
    • BarryC ... I have celiac's and didn't get my knickers in a twist!!! If I did, I'd probably trip and fall flat on my face and have other problems to worry about.  Don't worry about it, we're here to help.   If I get accidentally glutened, I do not get the intestional issues, but I do get some good body and bone aches. If I can't figure out what's causing it, and keep getting glutened, the brain fog sets in, I so very hate that worse than anything, send me to the retirement home early! I also miss a good beer, my regular grocery stopped carrying Coor's Peak, which wasn't great but wasn't bad. I have to go a little further to find good gluten-free beers, just try one of each until you find the one that you like. I used to love Heiferweisen beer...wheat beer of all things, but can't have that anymore, and haven't found a good substitute, oh well.  Onward and upward.
    • My understanding about the antibody blood test is that the amount of a positive result is not indicative of anything...higher does not mean definately have celiac's and lower does not mean could possibly not have it.  My doc told me that anything a little above 0 is the same as a big response, it just depends on the person how much antibody they will produce.
