If you are in Edmonton, the Taste of Edmonton festival has things labeled as celiac friendly or not. The festival runs through next weekend (July 28th - downtown), and there are 14 different gluten-free foods available. I've eaten twice with no problems. Very fun to be out and about and be able to order booth from a food festival like normal!

That is awesome! I was wondering how they would do that and did not know whether it would be safe for those of us with celiac or not. So glad it is. Darn it - we should have gone this weekend! Do they seem to be very aware?

Both booths I went to were, but they were both Indian food places & those tend to be easily Celiac friendly.

You can get a menu for all the booths when you buy tickets at the front, and it has "C" written next to anything we can eat. (I think there was one mislabel on it--Chef's Grill and Bar had a "C" next to their pie, but I think it was supposed to be next to their stuffed mushrooms.)

All the booths also have signs in front of them with gluten free stuff labeled with the "C." And the food is cooked right in front of you.

That is amazing! They actually had a system in place? Wow. Edmonton certainly has great safe places for us to eat out. Our favourites are Red Ox Inn, Wildflower Grill, corso32, Madison's Grill and, of all things, a fish and chips place called Brit's Fish and Chips. Seriously - they have a dedicated fryer and the battered fish and chips are fried in their own special gluten-free breading. I'm not a fan of deep frying but just adore this place. One of the servers has celiac, too. Have you tried it?

I haven't...I've eaten at a bunch of places here, but none of those. I'm vegetarian too, so I don't think the fish and chips place would work (but I might be able to find something.)

I'll look into the rest of them, thanks for the suggestions!

Oh, sorry. And here I was suggesting all these non-veg places. But I would suspect that they would have at least some choice of things to eat. Usually better restaurants have one vegetarian option. I'm pretty sure that Madison's Grill does. All the places I listed have websites so you could give them a call. Do you have your own favourites in Edmonton? I am always up for trying something different, too! :)

I just moved here, so I'm still learning places to eat. We ate at Sofra once--it was very good. Also at Col Mustard's on 124th--that food was different from any thing I've had, but good. The Dish and the Runaway Spoon didn't have too much both veggie and gluten free, and what I got was too salty, but you might have luck with something else.

There are a lot of places I can eat here...but a lot are a little pricey for regularly eating at! We've eaten at an Indian place downtown several times, but I can't remember the name offhand.

I eat at Boston Pizza a lot. One of their salads made me sick once, but I've never had a problem with their pizzas. There was also a place at the City Centre that made me sick, but I don't remember the name.

I checked out the Duchess Bake Shop, but I wasn't convinced their stuff wasn't cross-contaminated, so I didn't try anything. I'm going to try MRKT downtown soon. They have daily gluten-free stuff.

Oh, and at Kinnickinnick's headquarters, of course! That's only a few blocks from where I live, so I've stopped in for fresh bagels, dinner rolls, and muffins. Plus they seem to have the cheapest gluten-free stuff in the city (their store carries stuff from other manufacturers too.)

I live in Edmonton. I don't eat out alot cuz I often have problems with cc but I've never had a problem with highlevel dinner. Favourite place in the city, has a celiac menu and a dedicated area of the kitchen (including fryer!) I've probably eaten there 30 times and never got sick. You can have the fries, but not their home made ketchup (they have regular ketchup if you ask). I would very highly recommend it. I am also a vegetarian so its great for that to.

This is great. Who does not crave good old diner food occasionally? I had heard about High Level Diner but have not yet been there. We will definitely be there on our next trip. Thanks lots! :)

    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
    • I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis.  I was put on a steroid inhaler recently.  I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in.  You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac.  Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.
    • You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.
