We're going on vacation for a few days to Cape Cod - it will be my first time since going gluten-free. We'll be in Provincetown, Truro, and Hyannis. Can anyone make any recommendations? I read a bad review about a place called Tiny's, and a good review of the Lobster Pot. (I remember the LP from my pre-Gluten-free days, yum!) I'm hoping there are more options than that!

here you go! I think she charges a tiny fee for the list.

Underground Cape Cod

http://www.undergroundcapecod.com/2009/06/gluten-free-on-cape-cod.html

She will even talk with you via email.

She has done extensive work compiling the list and blogging about it after she eats in these places.

I plan on using it myself when I visit family and friends on the Cape this summer.

I had many a good lobster and martini in the LP pre-Dx myself!

Try the Coonamessett Inn in Falmouth. I was there once about two years ago, the restaurant manager was gluten free and made me a sundae from his private stash of gluten-free brownies. It was also, by far, the best filet mignon I've ever had. At the time, I'd found it because someone left a review on yelp or one of those websites. Now, they have a whole gluten free menu. Granted, it was two years ago, but the fact that they've evolved enough to have a menu is a good sign that they're still doing a good job with it. They have steamed spring rolls on the menu now! Gee, wish I lived closer than four hours away....

Fair warning= the Inn is a reservations kind of place on the weekend, woudn't want you to be dissapointed and get turned away cuz it's too busy! That's really only during tourst season, and I have no idea when that starts, just wanted to let you know.

I am a summer regular on the Cape. I highly recommend the Black Cat in Hyannis. I believe it is on Ocean Street right by the ferries. I have eaten there regularly the past 2 summers. The chef is very well-trained in cross-contamination. I never had an issue. On the weekends, they have great entertainment.

Also, in Falmouth, there is a little place around the corner from the Coonamesset Inn that I think is the best. It's an old home where the locals go, yet THEY HAVE A GLUTEN FREE MENU, and they have regular entertainment. It is called the Nimrod Inn. I am a regular there in the summer - it is very quaint, inviting, and classy. Hope these ideas help.

I have eaten here also, in the past year, and the food was amazing. Their gluten-free menu is excellent and they bring you out warm gluten-free rolls too! It is not a cheap eats place and reservations are strongly recommended in summer but the food was so good, I didn't care how much it costs. I felt great after eating there and I am very, very sensitive. Anyone want to have a party, I am willing to drive the 2 hours down there. ;)

Let's keep the Cape recommendations going! With a little luck, we'll be back next year. I started a new thread in the Restaurant section as a holiday wrap-up, so be sure to check it out.

We're heading to the Cape in a week and I was reading about an entirely gluten-free restaurant in S. Yarmouth (not far from Hyannis) called Igdy's. The reviews are good and the menu looks tasty. Will be nice not to worry about cross-contact...

Cathleen, I tried to Google the restaurant you referenced, and cannot find it. Can you tell me the address or anything else about the restaurant?

I know this is an old topic but the Cape Cod season is going to start again soon.  On the first page of this thread my gluten-free Cape Cod list was mentioned and I really appreciate it.  I do charge $3. for it and I was sorry to have to start charging at all but it's time consuming and I do a lot of work to keep it up.  I email restaurants all the time, I eat at them (a fun part of this "job"), I've worked with places to help them start a gluten-free menu and after all that I update the list, usually monthly.   

 

I try to keep the list as current as possible (I just sent out 20 gluten-free inquires to newer restaurants).  It's 18 pages and counting now!  I'm always happy to discuss various restaurants via email (or here) and I'm more then happy to help with travel plans or ideas of things to do while you are here.

 

Again, thanks for the mention!

I second this place!  I ate there about 3-4 years ago and would love to take a ride just to have a meal here again.  The Cape is so crowded in the summer, I tend to like to go off season. 

They had an amazing gluten-free menu, served hot rolls while everyone else got their bread and the meal was one of the best I have had, gluten-free, in a restaurant, and I am a total food snob.  Snob in the sense that I will eat just about everything but insist on it being cooked the right way.  I had the swordfish and it was delicious and moist.  In fact.......http://www.capecodrestaurants.org/coonamessett/menus  I just figured I would link the menu for you and now my mouth is watering from just reading it!  Go there!  :D

 

Susan.....I hope you have this one on your list because it's well worth the prices they charge.  Thank you for your work.....it sounds like fun work too!

I've gotten requests for Cape Cod restaurants myself as I live just an hour and a half away so I'll steer them in your direction.

I used to live on the Cape.  Tourist season starts around March/April and continues until about October.

Our real season is July 4 - Labor Day.  We certainly do have people coming on weekends now but there is no back up at the bridges and the roads are still traffic free.  After Labor Day you don't really need reservations anywhere, we do have a nice fall season but its not crowded (meaning no traffic back ups).

 

I probably won't go on a weekend during the season, I'll do a Tuesday or Wednesday.  But thanks for the heads up it's always good to know!

Hi Susan!

I am grateful to you for your list.

I had 3 great meals at the Naked Oyster last fall because you recommended it on your list.

the owner came out to chat with me and then, I posted on Find Me Gluten Free and Trip Advisor

so other Gee Freers can dine there too.

EXCELLENT food.

Thanks for all you do!!!!!!

I just had dinner there myself a couple of weeks ago.  They do a good job.  I feel really lucky that we have all sorts of gluten-free choices ont he Cape.  I was in NYC last week and had some great dinners there but it required a lot of research to come up with the right places.  I guess because the Cape is smaller it's easier but I really do feel we have a lot of restaurant owners and chefs that are embracing what the diner wants.  Many are working with us gluten-free folks and allergy issues too (my daughter is both gluten-free and has a life threatening peanut allergy).

    • Thank you all for your great suggestions! Will take all of it on board
    • Dairy is a major issue with celiac, due to the enzymes to break it down being produced by the villi tips being mostly destroyed or damaged first. Eliminating for a few months may be critical. I might suggest digestive enzymes, I am taking Jarrow Enzymes at 2x the dose, Jarrow Bromelain, and sometimes some extra papaya enzymes. I have issues breaking down the large amounts of foods I consume otherwise (I am trying to body build bulk). I also would look at some protein powders if I was you. Vegan protein powders are easy to digest most times an can be great. Pumpkin Seed protein is the easiest on the stomach, being a balanced PH, high in zinc, iron, magnesium, it is very good for recovery and putting on weight in addition to others. Might also consider blends, try not to get anything with too much gums in it. I like NutraKey V-Pro and MRM Veggie Elite. I also buy a whole list of others. On her food, veggies, and meats should be cooked to almost mush, try using a crockpot and stewing them. This will make them easier to digest and break down.
      Is she having any other issues? Like Bowl issues? I find I can loose hunger if I back up, and I have to take magnesium like crazy and eat a whole lot of fiber to keep it moving. Take it you already read the newbie 101 section about getting all new cookware, and deconing the house? Bit of a extra tip I swear by to everyone, Freezer Paper/Butcher Paper. Makes a nice clean prep surface and easy clean up.
    • Hi Kirsty, Gluten messes me up in a lot of different ways, some of which I recognise in your first list. You can find a massive list of symptoms associated with celiac here: https://glutenfreeworks.com/gluten-disorders/symptom-guide/ and it may be that some of your other symptoms can be found there. It's also worth searching this forum as it's been going for a long time, in internet years at least.  It certainly messed with my blood sugar and like you I'd take tests which didn't reach the extreme values, but that didn't stop the symptoms. The only way I realised this was when I removed it from my diet, for other reasons and found that a load of different other symptoms also resolved.  After this happened I then went back on to gluten for a test, a gluten challenge. My symptoms came back, but my blood test and endoscopy were negative for celiac. My consultant told me to avoid gluten for life.  In your case you need to decide whether to push for more celiac testing or not. If not, please consider fully excluding gluten. My own experience is that it's not something that you can have a little of and get a health benefit, you are still engaging your auto immune system. Obviously if you're experiencing extreme symptoms when you remove it you should do it in consultation with your doctor, but maybe if you could just get through those difficult first few days you may experience relief from some of your symptoms? Best of luck matt    
    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.
