Gluten Free In Seattle

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 to elminate, carbs, and sugars also due to UC, but I haveen cooking for diabetics for years in my bakery. I do keto based breads, grain free baked goods, nut butters, etc. I have a few grain free low carb recipes in the cooking section like Keto low carb dinner rolls, flat bread, crackers, etc. My bakery also sales keto loaf breads that are a huge hit with my customers. Look at ketogenic/paleo diets. stews, meats, leafy greens creamy soups with nut milks etc. Crock pot and batch meals will be your new friend I imagine.
    • First, let me make this clear.  Your diet may have contributed to diabetes a bit, but the reality is you are either genetically predisposed or not.  That covers both Type 1 (TD1 — autoimmune) and Type 2 (TD2 — insulin resistance).   Has your doctor diagnosed you with TD1 or TD2?  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  It can be determined by measuring antibodies (e.g. GAD).  Like celiac disease, there are several antibody tests for TD1.  It can affect any age.   The body destroys beta cells that help produce insulin.  Insulin resistance (TD2)  is common as we age or eat a poor diet of simple carbohydrates (which is just about everyone in the US!) if you are predisposed.    It runs in families.  It can be treated by diet and if needed, medications and/or insulin.   I recall the same dismay.   I have TD2.  I have made dietary adjustments and have been able to ward off medications that could affect my gut.  You really can lose that sweet tooth!   Here is a link to Blood Sugar 101.  The author is NOT a doctor, but is good at investigating research.  It is a highly regarded website.  She sells a small book, but it contains exactly the same information.  I bought one for my Uncle who is not on the internet (imagine that!).  Learn about “eating to your meter”.  What affects one diabetic may not affect another in terms of elevating blood sugar.  Managing your blood sugar will help prevent all those diabetic complications.  Jenny’s Site also references some very well-respective books written my medical doctors who live with diabetes.  It is a good place to start.  Like this site, it helps me stick to my gluten-free and Lowere carb diet (you need to determine what works for you personally and I can not stress that enough). got to go......    
    •   Had to mention........this made me laugh out loud and how true it is! 
    • You do realize I am starting to drool all over my keyboard?    Your second sentence said it all.  It's been 12 years for me gluten-free so gluten free chewy is fine by me!
    • Bfree brand is in the US now and they are stocked at my local grocery store.  I have not seen the wraps yet but I am going to request that they stock them.  They have these dinner rolls that are actually a gluten-free sourdough roll and they are delicious!  Read the link and see what they use for sourdough starter......excellent! The rolls have chew to the crust and are soft and fluffy on the inside. I see they now make the brown, seeded rolls, which I like better than the white so the hunt is on!    Thanks for the advice.....I really miss burritos. One of the few times I have trouble with the Celiac thing is when I am in London and I can smell all that delicious street food being prepared.  It's downright torture.  As for the panettone.........they are really good.  I have never become ill from anything I have bought from Italy....they really know their gluten free stuff! https://us.bfreefoods.com/product/soft-white-rolls/
