It doesn’t get any better than the testimony of a diagnosed celiac, cycling through Sooke with miles to go before he sleeps!

  • “Just had a great gluten-free meal at Route 14 in Sooke. Awesome menu with gluten-free notations and a great chef that isn’t afraid to use spices. I ordered a Morroccan Korma dish that was so good I asked for a spoon so I would not waste a drop. Owner Stew was a great host – well aware and talked to the chef immediately when I had a question about soup of the day. My small intestine can verify this is the best restaurant I have been to in months! I am celiac, diagnosed just 7 months ago, and I am absolutely confident this establishment is on the ball!”

Old Town Wild Poppy Bakery

As co-owners of the Old Town (Wheat) Bakery at 510 1st Avenue in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, Kate Cram and husband Geoff could easily be considered local celebrities!  As an ‘Associate with the Culinary Institute of America‘ who also undertook to certify as a Red Seal Baker in Canada, Kate is truly baker’s baker!

Two children later, Kate and Geoff’s young sons began to experience persistent health issues that had them resorting to a gluten-free diet in search of relief.  The improvement was nothing short of remarkable and a heads up to Kate that gluten may be taking a toll on her own health. The couple found themselves at a professional and personal cross roads with Kate contemplating the end of a career she loved, and their children unable to  set foot within the family business.

That’s how Wild Poppy Bakery and Bistro was born!

NEWS! March 20, 2017: Union Street Re-Opens with Sleek New Design

Comox Valley posted Mar 20, 2017 at 11:00 AM

“Union Street Grill & Grotto is elevating the downtown Courtenay dining game. The Downtown Courtenay restaurant re-opened Monday, March 20 with a brand new look that paves the way for a new upper floor and a rooftop patio that, pending approval, will create the City of Courtenay’s first rooftop dining space.

“Building this new floor and possibly opening a rooftop patio changes the game in terms of what we offer our diners,” says Emily Cummings, one of the managers of the Union Street Grill & Grotto. “We’re so excited for this! Rooftop lounges are such a big city luxury – imagine sipping cocktails with your co-workers at lunch while you bask in the sun and watch the action buzzing on Fifth Street. We’ll be the only place in downtown Courtenay offering this kind of dining experience.”

A longtime favourite of Comox Valley locals – renowned for its made-from-scratch dishes, longtime support of local producers and vast selection of gluten-free options – Union Street Grill & Grotto has been serving up lunch and dinner in downtown Courtenay for more than 19 years.

Union Street Grill closed for renovations on February 16 and re-opened on Monday. During this first stage of renovations, the full-service dining section of the Grill underwent a sleek redesign and the foundation was laid for the addition of a second floor and, perhaps eventually, the rooftop patio.

Cummings says that future stages of the renovation will focus on revamping the Grotto to reflect the updated Union Street style, adding a second floor dining area and expanding the children’s play area.

“We want to create the best family-friendly dining experience in Courtenay,” she says, adding that they offer a wide selection of kid-approved menu options. “We don’t feel you should have to choose between enjoying an evening on the town and finding a sitter to entertain your kids. Sizzling-hot grill fare, great drinks and good times – we want to make sure your whole family can be there to enjoy it.”

Union Street Grill & Grotto is located at 477 Fifth Street in downtown Courtenay. The family-friendly, fully licensed restaurant offers a diverse lunch and dinner menu seven days a week, along with its popular gluten-free and take-out menus.”
