I was THRILLED to find Portia's Cafe. I have been longing to find a restaurant locally like gratitude café where I have eaten many times in Kansas City, MO. This is that place!!
I had the harvest chili meal-- the daily special-- and found amazing flavors and fresh ingredients that made my taste buds sing. Each bite a delight.
Then I had a piece of chocolate 'cheezecake' and each forkful melted on my tongue.
So wonderful to not have to ask if they have a gluten-free menu-- the whole menu is gf/cf/GMO-free. I will be returning soon, and often.
They have really great wraps. I couldn't even believe the wrap was gluten free the first time I had it. I stopped going here after having many mixed experiences with the staff. My mom and I both have celiac, and on one occasion we were offered onion rings, but we went with fries. The next time we went in my mom asked if the onion rings were gluten free and was told no. We had this experience with a couple of items on their menu. The last straw was when my mom specifically ordered fries with her meal, but it came out with onion rings. The fries the rest of us had ordered were clearly very old. When my mom said she didn't order the onion rings, the waitress proceeded to pick them off her plate with her fingers instead of offering to take the plate away and fix their error. We were also asked to leave that very night when we had been there for less than 2 hours and ordered appetizers, dinners and desserts and coffee, and were told it was because the booth we were in was reserved, however there were plenty of open tables around the restaurant.
I have been to this establishment on several occasions and found the staff to be knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to ask the chef/manager questions when voicing contamination concerns. The prices are a bit elevated; but, it is definitely worth a visit to this restaurant for some very tasty appetizers and main dishes
Wonderful bakery products here. I became a steady customer after my first visit over a year ago. Since I have not tried a product that I did not enjoy, I must recommend this establishment to anyone in the area that has Celiacs.
I do not recommend.
nice place but service and gluten free choices are limited.
Waited 10 minutes to be recognized by the hostess who was checking out two ladies purchasing T-shirts.
One oven was down so limited menu was more limited. Had the grilled chicken sandwich on gluten free bun. It was small and like all gluten free buns it fell apart in my hands.
When the manager came around and asked how my meal was, I told her and she just smiled and said okay. ??? it was weird.
Still hungry I got the nachos. Small serving but okay.
The bill was 24 for the meal PLUS 20 for two of the Green gluten free beers. It would have been nice to be aware of this first as this was not even on the menu.
Very aware of GF needs. Chips are not GF safe- they are used in same fryer as other food. They let us know that. Side of grilled corn is a must! Amazing flavors. Had no reactions from eating here. When back in this area, would definitely eat here again!
An extensive GF menu. So many options to choose from. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food was good. My reason for a lower rating...the girl at the register was slightly rude and not very detail oriented. Got my food and thankfully asked to make sure it was a GF bun...she forgot! Good thing I double checked. Other than her, it was a good experience.
