We been to a couple here and I have to admit, I actually got tears in my eyes to see how thrilled my 6 year old was to be able to pick out anything he wanted. It was so nice not to have to conduct a lengthy interview with the waitress.

In Randolph, MA (15 minutes from Boston) is All Can Eat - a bakery that serves breakfast, and lunch and sells pre-made goods.

And Idgy's on Cape Cod (Dennis? Yarmouth? not sure). This place was wonderful. We at there (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) several times while vacationing on the Cape.

Wish there was an option or two right in Boston . . . maybe soon.

Crave Bake Shop in Lake Oswego, Oregon is completely gluten-free, and so delicious. Their cinnamon rolls are amazing, my gluten eating boyfriend prefers them over anything else.

Also the little restaurant and food cart The Whole Bowl is also gluten-free and scrumptious. That's in Portland though.

There's a few in the Chicago area:

Sweet Ali's Bakery in Hinsdale is completely gluten free and delicious - they did the cupcakes for my wedding recently and even the gluten-eaters loved them. They've also got really good cinnamon rolls!!

DaLuciano's restaurant in River Grove, IL - it's not completely gluten free, but they've got an enormous gluten free menu and a completely separate kitchen where the gluten-free items are made. Four of the restaurant owner's kids have celiac disease.

Fatoush in Chicago - A Lebanese restaurant that's completely gluten free except that they carry regular pita and baklava that are made off-site. The restaurant owner has an anaphylactic (sp?) reaction to gluten.

Posana Cafe in Asheville, NC.

Our server told us all menu items were gluten-free when we were there in August 2011.

Sweet Sin Bakery in Baltimore, MD. It's soooo good! Not only do they have amazing cupcakes and desserts, but they also crank out super-tastey breakfast, lunch and dinner options. They also make really good breads!

I love eating there because I can relax and not worry about CC. It's unfortunately about 30 minutes away - so I only get to go occasionally.

Also, Lillit Cafe in Bethesda, MD specialized in gluten free stuff. They have a little market inside where they sell gluten-free goods - their menu is pretty extensive. They make the best gluten-free crabcakes! (they also have a regular menu - so not totally gluten free.)

Another vote for New Day Gluten Free outside of St. Louis. Used to be / still is Beck's Bakery. Yum.

In Nashville, Aunt April's Bakery. This one is more a dedicated gluten-free bakery than restaurant, but she does have a few tables and ONLY gluten free sandwiches, etc. Highly recommend.

Here in Temecula, Ca is All Of The Above. Great food and gluten, dairy, casien free foods. Either all at once or you can buy food that is one or the other. I got a great carrot cake there last time and I always get a delicious chicken salad sandwich, They even had some fantastic individual pineapple upside down cakes one time. The only problem for me is that I live an hour away while at work. I couldn't justify taking a 2.5 hour lunch break and they don't open until 9:00a.m. and close at 6:00p.m.!!! I olny make it in if I have some meeting in town or some other reason, like going to get stuff for the office. lol

Later,

Ray

    • Hi Rob and welcome  You have found a good site with a supportive community! Celiac can be difficult to diagnose because it can affect so many different systems in the body. There are links to further info and some hopefully useful answers to common questions in this topic:  That said, I tested negative for celiac via blood and endoscopy but some people do not show up on the test for many reasons, but gluten is still a problem for them. It certainly is for me! Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is one catch all term for such people. So...  I think your friend is on the right path. I'm sorry if he's not able to access medical care as it would be much better to diagnose this via a doctor and exclude anything else, or identify any other conditions should he have them.  However there's no treatment if he does have it bar STRICT adherence to a gluten free diet. He could try keeping a food journal listing what he ate, when and how he felt. I did and managed to track down the above symptoms along with a LOT more. Gluten was giving me chest pains, eyesight issues, anxiety, depression, balance issues, palpitations, nerve twitches etc etc. I only began to identify them all by keeping a journal and your friend could do that and follow the diet to see if he can get some answers for himself.  Best of luck to him and yourself    
    • If you are eating gluten free all testing will come up negative. That's blood draw, endoscopic biopsy AND dh biopsy.
    • I am writing for a friend of my daughter. 34 year old male - who somewhat suddenly developed chronic abdominal pain about 6 months ago. The symptoms progressed to include chronic fatigue.  While he had insurance he had CT, Colonoscopy and Endoscopy - routine labs -  nothing found - he had a celiac test - but not sure he followed the diet correctly before the test and there is also a type of Celaic that does  not test positive. In short this person has been able to work during the last 6 months and has since lost his insurance and has been denied for medicaid. I got a list of his symptoms  - and am hoping I can get some feed back from people with this disease to if his symptoms match up to this disease. Any input will  be greatly appreciated ! >>> thanks Rob. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Can only eat a few foods and once used to them cannot switch diet with out pain.
      When stomach pain is bad it is always associated with bad back pain and leg pain. 
      Extreme weakness/feeling faint if goes too long without food General fatigue
      Very easily fatigued after any physical activity
      Intermittent malaise
      Core muscles weakness Lacy (spotty) apperence on skin seemingly associated with any physical activity No ability to regulate temperature.. Overheats very easy... Over heating seems to lead to extreme weakness/feeling faint/fatigue/malaise type feeling
    • Thanks everyone for the advice and info! I've never really considered joining a support group before but its pretty cool to get intouch with people who understand what you're experiencing. For years everyone would just tell me I was a  hypochondriac but after I learned that I might have this disease and researching it these are all the symptoms I've been having! I finally don't feel crazy anymore! 
    • I decided to go Gluten Free out of support for my daughter and because I do struggle with digestive issues and my energy level isn't consistent.   I expected that I would feel better but I didn't truthfully expect a BIG difference.  In the month that I have been gluten-free I have twice consumed ONE bite of Gluten foods (a pastry once and then a bite of a mini muffin) because I had a brain fart and wasn't thinking.  Both times within 8-10 hours the stabbing stomach pains returned and irritability etc even though mentally I never gave either bite another thought.  I thought the first time may have just been a coincidence but I realize now the connection.   I have also had painful carpal tunnel for years.  Two days ago someone asked for an update on my daughter and I told her that she is now Gluten Free.  She remarked that she has been gluten-free for a few years and that she used to have painful wrists and now it is just gone.  I must be an inner cynic because I still assumed that her issues were not true carpal tunnel? LOL  The very next day I was grocery shopping with my daughter and when she picked up items she would wince and for the first time ever complained about the shooting pains in her wrists.   I am researching and reading about this so much now and I read about infertility and all these issues connected to gluten intolerance and I am SHOCKED that potentially I have been struggling with Gluten all this time and just really had no idea!
