Bitez Sandwich Bar Sticking to Gluten-Free Basics

Bitez Sandwich Bar FBWhen news of that Celiac Scene sweetheart, Bitez Sandwich and Espresso Bar at 310 Goldstream Avenue in Colwood had been sold, I beat a path to their doors to meet the new owners, Steven and Selena! Did they plan to maintain the previous owners’ careful gluten-free protocol? The answer was a resounding yes!

Selena and Steven will be following in Doug & Mindi’s fabulous gluten-free footsteps:

  • written assurances from  suppliers that ingredients for the wraps, buns, meats and toppings are gluten free
  • separate gluten-free prep section
  • well-trained staff and scrupulous cleaning procedures

Bitez uses high quality, fresh local produce and cheese,  and documented to be gluten-free bread. Their meats are purchased whole from Glenwood Meats and sliced on site to minimize any risk of cross contamination at the supplier.

Be sure to stop by Bitez sometime soon to offer Selena and Steven your warmest gluten-free welcome!
