    Everything there is delicious!! Soup, sandwich, pastries, I've never had a bad bite and I absolutely LOVE having somewhere I can go that I don't have to ask five million questions just to be sure it's really safe. Definitely my favorite place in the valley, maybe all of Anchorage too....

    I've tried so hard to like this place. We have visited 3 times before writing this, hoping my opinion would change. Pros: All ingredients local, fresh made, & seasonal, baked goods are great, huge selection of baked goods, they welcome dogs, European inspired decor is very nice, & 2 younger employees are nice. Cons: owner/manager is usually short w/ ppl, & rude. Portions are very small, everything has been reinvented & somehow has sauerkraut involved in it, very pricey, you can't order a normal sandwich of any kind, & most of the food is OK. I'll continue to visit & support this business based alone on the fact they are a 100% GF facility.

    Small portions. Nice waiters but the owner(or maybe manager?) has been very rude. Good, clean, gluten-free food.

    Amazing! A completely gluten-free facility in the heart of Alaska. I had succulent seared scallops on buckwheat toast; my wife had a Portuguese sausage stew. Both wonderful. We feel like we bought out the bakery when we left.

    Absolutely amazing experience! knowledgeable staff and fresh, delicious foods. The others in my part had a veggie melt that was incredible and I had a cucumber and tomato,vegan sandwich. We were also thrilled with all the options in the bakery case. Great experience!

    I REALLY wanted to have an awesome experience here but unfortunately it did not happen. I ordered a small slow roasted meat sandwich with beet chips. The small sandwich was so tiny it actually fit into the palm of my hand (it was not a normal piece of bread, it was a perfect circle like it had been cut out using a biscuit cutter. There was probably about 1 Tablespoon worth of meat on it and one little sliver of spiced apple. The flavor was amazing, but it literally took me 3 bites to eat the whole thing! The beet chips were the red triangle corn tortilla chips you can get from costco and there was only about a hand full at the most. I was expecting sliced beets that were either baked or fried....not red corn chips. I am not picky and I was really looking forward to having a gluten free place to eat in Wasilla, but the whole sandwich/"beet chip experience was strange and I expected something totally different. I will say the flavor of the sandwich was awesome....but seriously the size was so sad and definitely NOT worth over $7! I tried to go back one other time to give it a 2nd chance, got there 30 minutes before closing only to find out the kitchen was already closed. Unfortunately I don't think I will go back for a 3rd try.

    Dedicated gluten and soy free cafe that has delicious food and caters to other allergens as well. I have no been disappointed in any of the food I have gotten from there so far. I don't live in wasilla but I drive out there just for the food sometimes. I wish they had longer hours so that I could stop in more often.
