Pip’s Place Gluten Free Cakery   CLOSED Nov.2015


My daughter Olivia, who we nick-named Pippi when she was a little girl, was diagnosed with celiac disease when she was fourteen years old. Coming to grips with her new dietary restrictions was a challenge for Pip, but also for me as her mother.
As we learned together how to deal with her condition, I was inspired by her strength, determination and willingness to accept this new way of eating. I was determined that Olivia would not have to give up her favorites when it came to my baking. What ensued was a journey of discovery, as I learned to create wonderful recipes from gluten free ingredients. After just a short time on the new diet she commented to me, “Mom, do people really feel this good every day?” Success. Not only was she finally healthy and feeling well, she was doing so while continuing to enjoy her favorite baked treats.  Eating gluten free is more than a diet – it is a way of life. Due to the risk of contamination, our entire house became a gluten free zone. With my new celiac-friendly recipes, Pip’s brothers. Drew and Bradley, didn’t know (or care) that all the baking in the house had become gluten free.
Olivia paid me a wonderful compliment before she left for college saying “with everything you baked for me, I have never felt deprived.” Pip’s Place is for Olivia and everyone like her with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance. You can safely enjoy homemade baking with confidence because there is no chance of cross contamination. At Pip’s Place, you can finally feel free to indulge again.

Pip’s Place is an upscale, gluten free bakery in NYC located on the. The cakery is dedicated to providing a safe haven for those with celiac disease or gluten allergies, where you can enjoy wonderful baked treats without the concern of cross contamination. Personal experience with celiac disease has fueled a passion to create fine desserts that everyone can enjoy, without sacrificing quality or taste. Pip’s Place has completed the Third Party Accreditation Process with the Gluten Free Food Accreditation program. Their unique blend of gluten-free ingredients, and a long process of trial and error, has allowed them to provide a wide range of delicious gluten free baked goods that are entirely indistinguishable from regular baked goods.

“Is that gluten free? Really?” is a common first response when their goods are sampled. Mmmmm …. is often the second.
Their goods are baked fresh daily on site with the finest ingredients, low fat where possible and never containing preservatives. Of course, a baked treat needs to be accompanied by a fine coffee or tea, and Pip’s Place offers a wide selection of both.

Gluten Free Bakery New Cascadia Traditional

New Cascadia Traditional is a gluten free bakery with a gluten free lunch menu. The Celiac Restaurant encourages you to support New Cascadia and all gluten free restaurants and gluten free bakeries.

New Cascadia Gluten Free Bakery

New Cascadia Traditiona is a dedicated Gluten Free bakery. They only produce gluten free baked goods. They verify and source the ingredients to ensure that they are always safe.

The staff at New Cascadia Traditiona is well informed in the issues of safety specific to gluten free food. In fact some of the staff are gluten intolerant and all are happy to answer your questions regarding their practices and ingredients.

Chris and Teresa at New Cascadia Traditional say,
“About a year ago a long time customer of ours asked me if I had tried a new gluten-free bread that was, at that time, new to the market.  It was described as “whole grain” and really good. There had not yet been a gluten-free whole grain bread that was mass produced and broke free of the long held stereotype of being akin to a brick than to its wheat based  cousin. So I sought out this bread at our local natural foods store.  I read the front of the bread bag and there were the words “gluten free” and “whole grain.”  Next I turned over the package and read the ingredients: Water, brown rice flour (not a bad start),tapioca starch, potato starch (things seemed to have quickly taken a turn in the less-than-whole-grain direction) then oil, sugar, then more refined starchiness. Somewhere down the line, I believe the eighth or ninth ingredient listed, was the other whole grain contained in the bread.  After that were a number of ingredients that I had difficulty pronouncing.  At this point it dawned on me just how different we do gluten-free at New Cascadia.  Simple, honest, wholesome and always gluten-free.

This was about the same time that we introduced our Multigrain bread.  What many consider to be our best bread, it is nearly 80% whole grain and without any refined ingredients or xanthan gum.  Sure, we use starch and xanthan gum in many of our products.  But we keep the refined stuff to a minimum.  Even many of our pastries are mostly wholegrain and made with a short, understandable ingredients list.  We take a simple, straight forward approach to baking: Comfort food for the gluten-free crowd that yearns for grandma’s old fashioned recipes of (pre gluten-free) days gone by.

We believe that our customers deserve the best, freshest baked goods available and we strive to make eating gluten-free an enjoyable experience. We use quality ingredients and even use vegetables, herbs and berries grown in the warmer months from our own organic garden beside the bakery. If you are ever in Southeast Portland, Oregon stop by for a cookie, pastry, pizza or loaf of bread. If you would like a slice of pie or want to order a cake, we will be happy to oblige. We’re sure you will appreciate the difference.”

Silly Yak Bakery – Gluten Free Bakery

Enjoy the outrageously delicious and varied selection of gluten-free breads and gluten-free desserts. All fresh gluten-free products are made from scratch with only pure, wholesome ingredients (no preservatives).

Holly Beach, founding owner of the Silly Yak Bakery, has been baking gluten-free breads and treats since June of 2002. “The reason I started baking gluten-free was due in part to stubbornness and in part to a passion for baking breads for EVERYONE to enjoy. When I found out how difficult it was to get gluten-free ingredients in bulk, I thought to myself how hard it must be for a person with Celiac disease to deal with obtaining safe and tasty foods on a day-to-day basis. From that point on, I was determined to make it work!”

Initially the Silly Yak Bakery dedicated one day per week to gluten-free baking. As Holly and crew started getting up earlier and earlier to bake, they soon realized that we needed to add a second gluten-free bake day. Thus gluten-free Tuesdays were begun!

Holly has made her dream of a full-time certified gluten-free baking facility a reality. They now bake gluten-free products daily! Stop in for a tour of the new facility.

Costa Vida – Gluten-free choices

Costa Vida, Gluten Free Choices

Costa Vida is a chain restaurant with about 45 locations in the South Western US.

The menu offers, “The ultimate way to eat a burrito. A piping hot tortilla stuffed full with cheese, sauce, black or pinto beans, cilantro lime rice, and your choice of protein. Don’t forget to get it smothered with one of our signature sauces: Red Enchilada Sauce, Roasted Green Chile Sauce, or Tomatillo Cilantro Sauce.”

The websites states, “We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, sauces and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts–tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer “oceans of gluten-free choices” in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla soup…which uses corn strips.”

Sounds like a good place for a Celiac to eat.

Check the City Pages to see if there is a Costa Vida location in your city.
