Our favorite restaurant! The staff is wonderful about knowing which items are safe to eat and the menu clearly has each item that is glutenfree or available glutenfree labeled. The food is fresh and always delicious! If you haven't visited this quaint gem, please check it out.
I had my single best dining out experience here. I was out with several family members celebrating and they all wanted to order the chef's tasting menu which of course put me in an awkward position since I cannot eat gluten or dairy and I certainly couldn't have all the courses as listed. I told the waiter my predicament and he said it would be no problem to order the tasting menu. Every course they either adjusted or came up with something entirely new for me and it was all absolutely delicious! To top it off the chef came out to see if I enjoyed it at the end of the meal. I was totally blown away. How amazing for the chef make that happen for me on a busy night as well. I will never forget it!
I have been here dozens of times. They are almost always perfect with being celiac friendly, but once in a while they make mistakes when they are busy with certain staff, so just stay vigilant and you will have no problems.
My sister-n -law ordered me some cookies & cake from the bakery & it was great so we planned a trip to Little Rock to visit the bakery. It was well worth it! Paula & staff are very knowledgeable about food allergies in baked goods and are willing to discuss them with you. I could not believe all of the variety of baked goods. I bought many items after trying her samples.
I love this place for so many reasons, but the last few times I've gone, I was sick the days following. Their food IS good, don't get me wrong. I didn't specify celiac the last time so maybe they just aren't as careful if you don't? I'm not sure, but the time before I did and got glutened, so at your own risk if you're really sensitive.
I ordered grilled salmon with plain broccoli and cheese grits. The grits came "loaded" with lots of bacon. I do not eat pork (or any meat that's not fish). They only would give me another plate of grits, not the whole meal, so I kept finding bits of bacon everywhere on the other food. When I expressed discomfort because I didn't know of the bacon was contaminated through the grill they cooked it on, the manager brought the menu back and showed me that bacon was indeed on the safe list. Really, they should have just prepared me an entire new meal, but they ignored my obvious distress. Not the best experience, all around.
Best GF breakfast around! She has a dedicated GF bakery and most of the kitchen is cooking GF food. I enjoyed one of the specialty omelettes while one son devoured a large breakfast sandwich on homemade GF bread and the other son enjoyed the blueberry pancakes. Definitely worth the trip! Hint: try to get there early as it is a popular place 😊
