Hi Folks
I did search the index first but didn't see any recommendations aside from Chateau Laurier.... and Thimble Cakes which I found through searching...
We're heading to Ottawa soon and I'm looking for allergen aware/friendly foodie places in Ottawa (or nearby)
Any experiences (positive or otherwise) would be greatly appreciated as I know the kids would love a meal out if I can find a place that can make it work...
Fingers crossed :)

We were in Ottawa last summer and tried Thimblecakes. My daughter loved the cookies and ice cream. She's allergic to dairy and anaphylactic to eggs. I'm allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and lentils. We both found foods we could eat there and the staff was really friendly when we called.

We also tried Strawberry Blonde Bakery
The staff was very helpful when I called and warned me that they did have chickpea flour on site but were not using it currently. Even though none of us are gluten-free, the fact that they were vegan, tree nut, peanut and lentil free was just too tempting. Their desserts were delicious. They have this ginger sandwich cookie that is just perfect.

We've also eaten at The Keg and had a very good experience. The manager came and spoke to us and then they made sure to make our food in separate pans instead of the grill.

Hope you can find something that works for you renie.
