Kitchener-Waterloo's Best Restaurants for Celiacs

Here are my current favourite restaurants in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. These restaurants have many gluten free options and seem to know a lot about how to serve a good meal that is gluten-free.

  1. Charbries (http://www.charbries.com/index.html) - The food, service and atmosphere is top notch here. They seem very knowledgeable about Celiac disease, and the last few times I've visited there they've mentioned they have a staff member with Celiac disease. Their caesar salad (prepared table-side) is wonderful - just ask them to make it without the croutons and Worcestershire sauce (which contains malt). Their main dishes are all outstanding, and most can be custom made to be gluten-free if they aren't already. Leave room for dessert - home made ice creams or creme brulee. With a new menu every season, you can always find a reason to visit Charbries.
  2. Verses Restaurant (http://www.versesrestaurant.ca/) - Well, I just wrote a post about their amazing gluten-free bread, and just for that they deserve to be in this list!
  3. Del Dente's (http://www.charcoalsteakhouse.ca/deldente.html)- At Del Dente's, all orders are made from scratch. I went with a party of 4 individuals and get this: one had Celiac disease (that's me), one had an allergy to garlic, and one had an allergy to nuts. They must have thought we were part of some strange allergy convention or something. Anyway, they catered to all of us, and none of us got sick. The food was also very tasty.
  4. The Keg - Ok, so I'm a sucker for steak. I've heard rumours that the Keg 'dusts' their steaks with flour, but the Waterloo Keg on Northfield Ave does not. The last time I was there, my server had Celiac disease and we looked at the ingredients in the caeasar salad dressing and there was no gluten. Just ask them to make the salad in a new bowl, so you don't get contamination with croutons from someone else's order. The steak is obviously the highlight, but add some crab or lobster and enjoy the feast.

Well, those are my favourites. Please feel free to leave a comment with your own favourites! And as always, don't forget to ask your server whether your choices are indeed gluten-free, as staff and preparation techniques are always changing.

Nice tips for dining out here, last year my family went to Crossroads in Elmira, we go there every year around christmas time for their buffet. I was able to eat the cream of broccoli soup, gravy, beef roast, turkey roast, many of the salads and veggies. They also went the extra mile and labelled everything that was gluten-free for me, and they had gluten-free bread to prepare if I wanted it. For desserts though it they had ice creams, puddings and fruit salads. You just have to watch for cross contamination since its a buffet, but I was just carful, and I didn't get sick.

Ennios is also very celiac friendly! They are amazing, and their pasta is to die for! Yes, Pasta, at a restaraunt, we can eat!

They also have appetizer, and dessert options!

SafeCeliac said...

Thanks for the tip! About a year ago I went to Ennios and was extremely impressed. Actually - our waitress was a Celiac too!

I had a pasta dish which was made from rice noodles, and the sauce was made from scratch without gluten.

I haven't tried any desserts or appetizers there. Next time for sure!

Thai Sun in downtown Waterloo has one dish on the menu that is completely gluten free. I too love Ennios but the only pasta dish that I have found to be totally gluten free is the olive oil and garlic one. I am very happy to find this listing of restaurants. I will pass this information along to my clients and have a couple of new options for eating out myself! Thanks!

Updated information:

Crossroads Restaurant in Elmira, also has GF pie. It's just not out on the buffet table. Tell your waiter and they will tell you what is available(less options than the dessert table, but at least options! If the bread isn't out(sometimes it's not) again, tell the waiter and they'll bring as much as you want!


No additional costs or restrictions, but you have to 'know' this to get it!

Just to add to your list: Margarita's (Mexican) and Masala Bay (right next to Margarita's) are great!
