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!

    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.            
    • I think this site is a far better source of info and support than any of the Facebook groups I've seen. Its certainly been a great help to me. I found that too much web surfing on some other sites including Facebook just made things more difficult, there are either sites pushing commercial solutions with little real scientific grounding or there are often well meaning people with particular axes to grind offering dubious advice.  I stopped visiting those sites finally as they just added to the climate of fear and anxiety around diet and health. If your journey is any way like mine, you'll find that things get much better, both in terms of adapting to the diet and also in your general health and well being. The first weeks are hard but as you learn to read labels, know which are your safe products and make sure you are completely gluten free then your body will do the rest.  
    • Looks like this soup does contain gluten: https://www.chilis.com/docs/Chilis-Allergen-Generic.pdf The page that lists gluten free options does not show the enchilada soup as being gluten free (scroll down a few pages).  
    • Okay, you ordered it online.  What does the ingredient label say?  I did not even know they made a canned or packaged soup?  Or did you order online and picked it up at the restaurant?   Maybe there is no gluten at all.  Maybe they only use masa flour (corn) as the soup base.  
    • I ordered it online and it was an accident. The store is now closed and the internet is not offering any solutions. The customer service helpline is useless.
