The Cabin Cafe & Mercantile at 4623 Bow Trail has taken on Victoria's gluten free breads and pastries! (Call (403) 240-3867 for availability to avoid disappointment if they are sold out))

How exciting is that. Especially for you on the west side of town. A funky log cabin with a huge cozy fireplace in the middle of the cafe, they offer Paninis made with GF PATISSERIE'S Italian flat bread amongst other things.
I had three more deliveries to get to today and simply ran out of time to taste any of the offered goods. So if any of you nosh there, please send me some feedback.

You all need to thank Karen ( ) for this deal to come together, it was her who pointed out to me that this place offers gluten free options. After a short test period and with your support, they now are another dot on the gluten free map in Calgary.

Now. There is more "commercial accounts" news to come. A bakery, also on the West Side has just placed a large order for Saturday delivery. If I make it in time, I will let you know about it.

But the potentially most exciting development is that a brand new Pizza Resto on 17th Ave SW is test driving Victoria's Pizza shells. Imagine. Just for a second. GF PATISSERIE Pizza with the most exciting ingredients in a restaurant....not at home. Dining out with friends in a great place. Same options, gluten free pie!

The joint opens Saturday at lunch and the final verdict is still out. I think they need to hear it from you, actual Celiacs, what kind of GF Pizza you want. Look for a Facebook link to the place shortly and tell them yourself.

I love the "funky log cabin" pics. That place carrying the gf pizza shells will not doubt be SWAMPED! Way cool!

Now is the "Cabin Cafe" the one doing the pizza's or is there a different one? I am slightly confused as the Pizza Restraunt was supposed to be on 17th Ave. and Cabin Cafe is Bow Trail.
Do you know the name of the pizza restaurant if it is different.

Hi Shirley,

yes, it is a nice little cabin. We like it. Plus, less than 24 hours later, they re ordered already.

the Pizza place is called Una Pizza + Wine and is located on 17th Ave SW. They are not sure yet if they will go with Victoria's shell, or make their own. However, they will offer GF options.

I just wanted to say this has been a great site for Gluten Free information. I wanted to pass along a link to an Okotoks newspaper article about a Gluten Free Support Group starting up in Okotoks.

Feel free to pass this information along to anyone who may be interested.
