Their sign advertises GF menu. It was misleading and disappointing. The menu consisted of 3 or 4 items which were Rice Chex cereal, pancakes, and a muffin. The staff was not very educated on allergies or gluten intolerance. Pancakes were good but pricey and they did not come with any sides.
Overall, I was disappointed.
We drove about 20 miles to get here based on reviews as we were visiting from San Diego with our 10-year-old daughter who has Celiac Disease. We were expecting a cafe. What we found was a market with a menu of three lunch items (tuna salad, chicken salad & quiche) plus a smoothie bar. No soup, as it is seasonal (despite fall like temps and rain). Seating was limited; two pub tables along the parking lot (it was pouring) or three stool at the smoothies bar with hardly any space at the counter because they use the counter more for displaying items. That being said, it was celiac friendly, staff was friendly & food was good. Would have liked to have seen a slightly bigger menu if we were to return in the future. Chicken salad wraps were on small side; my husband was still hungry. We spent close to $30 for two wraps, a smoothie & a cookies and cream cupcake and walked away hungry.
The manager said it would be 100% gluten free and me and my mom decided to share a pasta carbonara dish. It took forever to get there, and when a lady came with our meals, my aunt's plate of pizza was overlapping mine. I looked over it but, after I took five bites I discovered a piece of regular pasta in my gluten free pasta. I had a mini panic attack while my mom sorted it out. Manager didn't even come out to talk to us. I got a new dish of pasta, and we got our whole meal for free because of it. Never going to Cheesecake Factory ever again.
GF fried chicken sandwich!...enough said, everything we tried was GF, ridiculously good, and reasonably priced. Don't miss the take home pizza crust and other bakery items. Hope this franchises soon to Lexington, KY.
