Finding a SAFE Gluten Free Restaurant on the Road

My little family took a BIG road trip last week: Florida to Massachusetts! While on the road and at our destination, there have been several chains that offer gluten-free menus, we didn’t always come across those while on the road. And now that we’re here in Cape Cod, the chain restaurants are few and far in between. So I was searching around for some sort of database of gluten-free restaurants and boy, did I hit the jackpot! I found the Gluten Free Registry and found a new, local place to eat safely tonight! Whoohoo! I’m going to the Coonamessett Inn and am going to check out their seemingly extensive menu. I’ll post back and let you know how it is. :)

So if you’re looking for a new place to safely eat, check out the Gluten Free Registry site. It seems like not every place has a very gluten-free friendly environment, but there are user reviews and contact info, so you can pick and choose a place at which you’re comfortable eating. And remember: when dining out, even at places that know about Celiac and safe handling of gluten, you always have to speak up and be your own advocate. Let the restaurant staff know about your need to be completely gluten free. Here are some tips on how to dine gluten-free.

    You may also want to know about our website called GlutenFreeTravelSite ( ). It contains thousands of user-submitted gluten-free dining and travel REVIEWS (in fact, we don’t just “list” places on our site…the establishment must be reviewed by someone to appear on our site). We have many different types of places reviewed: restaurants, bakeries, markets, hotels/resorts, B&Bs, cruises, and even colleges and churches offering GF communion. Reviews are organized and searchable by location, and we have reviews from all around the world, not just the U.S. We have tons of other resources on our site, as well as a Blog. I think it will help you — and your followers — when you’re searching for safe places to eat — wherever you are! Let me know if you have any questions!
