Gluten-Free Crepes


 We recently tried the new gluten-free menu at Crepevine in Santa Rosa and were delighted. There are plenty of options and the owners have taken care to prevent cross-contact. The staff was knowledgeable and welcoming when we ordered gluten-free. The food was delicious and plentiful. 


It is a family-owned local chain that coordinates its gluten-free policies at all nine Bay Area locations. As always, call before you go to make sure they can meet your needs. We are planning a Celiac Community Foundation of Northern California luncheon in the Santa Rosa restaurant in the fall. Details to come...

 Diablo Clinical Research in Walnut Creek is conducting a clinical trial locally for celiac disease. 
The purpose of the research study is to look at how effective and safe an investigational medication is when it is given to subjects who have celiac disease.


The study  is sponsored by Alba Therapeutics, the company co-founded by Dr. Alessio Fasano, director of the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research. Diablo Clinical Research is one of dozens of sites for the research.
The study will include people who have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease and have been on a gluten-free diet for 12 months or more before study entry.
