Wine country and what a perfect place to stop on the road back from the Rockies! We spent our spare time here exploring the little vineyards and wineries dotted around the lake, and then ate at home.
Nevertheless here are the restaurants I found through research that can cater for gluten free. As I haven’t tested these places personally please ask the relevant coeliac questions when dining at them, but there seem to be plenty of coeliac friendly spots in Kelowna.

Gluten Free Kelowna
A fully gluten free bakery in Kelowna, hooray! Note they bake to order (aside from bread and cinnamon buns) so you should order ahead via their website and then you can pick up in store.
A lakeside dining spot set within a hotel with various gluten free options including gluten free fish tacos and gluten free flatbread. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and specific gluten free pans and utensils for making their flatbread, making it as coeliac safe as a mixed facility can be.
This restaurant mentions specifically on its website that they cater for gluten free customers. They specialise in seafood and offer a gluten free menu, including gluten free fish and chips. All reviews I read said this place was coeliac safe.
A Mexican restaurant with dedicated gluten free fryers and many items on the menu are naturally gluten free too. Gluten free choices are marked on the menu – all tacos are naturally gluten free and they have gluten free buns available for their burgers (and gluten free fries). This seems to be a really good eating spot for coeliacs.
Hit the wineries with this restaurant based at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. The gluten free options offered here include pasta!
A thai restaurant with lots of gluten free options and coeliac friendly processes. The gluten free options and marked clearly on the menu and many dishes are naturally gluten free.
A chain of Asian restaurants with a branch in Kelowna. This branch uses a fresh wok for each dishes, vastly minimising any cross contamination risk. Staff are understanding of the correct procedures for preparing coeliac food and gluten free soy sauce is available. The menu is marked up to show which dishes can be made gluten free.
