We're going to stay in the Kelowna area for a week this summer, we'll be camping so should be easy enough to stay food safe. Just wondering if there are any places (restaurants, bakeries) that might be ok for us. Thanks.

Check out this article!
I'm not sure if any of these restaurants are in Kelowna, though.

Did you find anything Becky? We were in Peachland a few weeks ago, but didn't go to any restaurants or bakeries. We are dealing with more allergies than your family is, though, if I remember correctly. We bought groceries and cooked at the house. If you did find anything, I'd be interested in knowing. Not sure if the restaurant situation is much different from where you are, but generally, good allergy aware restaurants in BC include: Moxie, The Keg, Cactus Club and Red Robin. . . .

We just got back from a 10 day vacation on a very small gulf island and had great experiences at the local pub, and the bistro at the winery there. Yay!

Yes, Peachland is beautiful!

It was Saturna Island, one of the small islands between Vancouver and Victoria. The pub owners have food intolerances, I believe, and the chef at the winery bistro was a visiting grad student from Oregon who was awesome and very accommodating.

Have a great trip!

Hi Becky! Are you looking for a family restaurant or something for the grownups?
Moxies is one that we have gone to in Kelowna. On the last visit they questioned whether the bread for the sandwich was okay.
We try to call ahead and speak to the chef when we go out. I have found it helpful to ask what they do as a matter of routine when someone has allergies. I also look for online menus so I have a better idea of what choices are offered.
My daughter was greeted by name and treated well at the Twisted Tomato. She had called ahead and explained her allergies to the chef on duty.
Hope you enjoy your visit. Great weather right now.
