5 Great Gluten Free Eateries in the Fraser Valley

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

If you’re like us, you love sharing food with friends and family. But if you have celiac disease, or any sort of gluten intolerance, finding a place that serves or bakes food you can enjoy can be stressful. That’s why we love these bakeries and eateries, which show food can be gluten-free and still totally delicious. This list of 5 Great Gluten Free Eateries in the Fraser Valley should help you find a place that you and your friends can all enjoy.  

The Wired Monk
111-1975 McCallum Road, Abbotsford
Ring: 604-746-3683

If going for coffee with your friends is the thing for you, The Wired Monk has all sorts of gluten-free options for you to munch on while you visit. Provided by High Crow Bakery, the gluten-free treats cover just about every craving, including chocolate fudge cake, banana loaf, and chocolate chip cookies. Plus, you get the bonus of eating great food while drinking organic coffees. What could be better than organic coffee, gluten-free snacks and a great visit with friends?

Big Feast Bistro
11920 227 St, Maple Ridge
Ring: 604-477-4334

If you’re in the mood for a full-size meal, it can be hard to find gluten-free options. Big Feast in Maple Ridge makes it a whole lot easier. They serve gluten-free bread (made from a local bakery), so any breakfast or sandwich can be made gluten-free. They also have delicious gluten-free desserts, including cookies and muffins. If you’re looking for a gluten-free meal out with the gals, Big Feast is the place to visit.

The Apple Organic Bistro at Nature’s Fare Market
19880 Langley Bypass, Langley
Ring: 778-278-1300

Everything at The Apple Organic Bistro is made in their kitchen, and they offer a wide selection of specialty foods for dietary needs, including vegan, sugar-free and wheat-free products. Soups, sandwiches, wraps, and many more products at The Apple Organic Bistro are made fresh, tasty and gluten-free, for your enjoyment.

O’Delish Bakery
Various locations around the Fraser Valley

Okay, so the gluten-free treats from O’Delish are amazing. Never has the word “No” been such a good thing: No gluten, no wheat, no hydrogenated oils, no refined sugar, no preservatives and no additives. O’Delish is dedicated to making delicious bread, cookies and muffins without all the additives. With products like Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies, Jalapeno Cheese Bread and Cranberry Orange Bread, we think they’ve done a fantastic job. The best part? You can find O’Delish products at several locations throughout the valley.

Zena’s Gluten Free
22346 Dewdney Trunk Road, Maple Ridge
Ring: 604-477-0774

Did you know that cupcakes and brownies can be gluten-free? They can, and they’re still scrumptious. Zena’s will have you tasting all sorts of yummy gluten-free treats, including brownies, lemon cupcakes, blondies and chocolate-quinoa fancy cake. Don’t feel like a cupcake? They also offer double dark chocolate chunk, ginger molasses and white chocolate cranberry cookies. Dessert has never been so healthy, or so heavenly. If you’re tired of the same old rice bread and grainy gluten-free cookies, you will LOVE what Zena’s has to offer!

We would love to know of more local eateries with gluten-free menu items. Please share your finds with us below in the comments!
