Gluten-free Nirvana in the Emerald City
When does 100% gluten-free really mean EVERYTHING on the menu is gluten free? When you walk through the doors of Capitol Cider in Seattle.
For Memorial Weekend we headed to the west side for a quick visit with family and to take The Boy to his first (that he remembers) Mariners game. Seattle has an abundance of diverse dining choices so I was super excited to see what the Emerald City had to offer a gluten-free girl like me. After a quick Google search, I found Capitol Cider on Pike Street. The website is well done and includes menus for a sneak peek along with this disclaimer:
"100% gluten-free kitchen – We are a peanut-free and gluten-free kitchen. We handle dairy, eggs and other nuts in our kitchen. Please share your allergen concerns upon your arrival with your server as soon as possible. We strive for the highest levels of food safety and we take the utmost care in the preparation of your food; however, we cannot assume liability for any food reactivities."
Not only is Capitol Cider allergen friendly, they also include an enticing selection of vegetarian choices for my herbivore husband. A quick look through the menu and we decided to eat brunch on Sunday before making our way to Safeco Field for the game.
A note to readers:
I am gluten sensitive/intolerant so I am not overly concerned with possible cross contamination. If you have severe reactions, I recommend taking additional precautions.
