After reading the great reviews on here we decided to try Mi Island.
Their bread comes from The Bald Strawberry, which if you have ever had their bread it is VERY dry.
I had the Reuben sandwich. Looked tasty at first but once you try to bite into the two pieces of 1 inch thick dry bread , taste goes out the window.
After leaving there within minutes I had a horrible stomach ache. One can assume from possible cross contamination since it is not a 100% gluten-free establishment.
I've tried making cinnamon rolls since being diagnosed with Celiac, but have been disappointed with the results. Their gluten free/dairy free cinnamon rolls are heaven. I bought two and will be headed back today to get more!
They have a separate menu. Once I mentioned we also have a dairy allergy they pointed out which options would work and taste best. My son had pulled pork and I had the salad with eggs and potato salad. The service was quick. No stomach issues at all!!!!! They prepare separately.
I had a gluten free beer and pizza. The pizza waa on its own baking dish with the typical gf pizza crust, but all of the pizzas could be made gluten free. They seemed to be knowledgeable about cross contamination. I didn't have a reaction.
I stopped in the restaurant but left without ordering. I questioned the waitress about how the pizza and even salad are prepared. She told me nothing is separate. All of the toppings for gf and regular pizza as well as salads are prepared from one common station. When I mention this is a huge cross contamination issue, she told me, "we were gloves" Sorry, I've been gluten this way before and just didn't feel safe.
I've never had trouble getting gf food here, though I did get served raw chicken once. Arg! The food is delicious, but it takes FOREVER to be served food here. Bring a good book or a long topic of conversation to keep you entertained while you wait, but the food will be great!
