    Solid diner food with big portions. They've been very good about my allergy whenever I go, which is frequent. Highly recommend the waffles. The sandwiches I've had are so-so but they make good fries.

    AMAZING Mozzerella sticks!! Loved their Egg Creams too. Everything else was great too, just diner food.

    I've been here a few times now and always have a great experience, fast service and so many gluten free options. I've tried the gluten free waffles, French toast, mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, and grilled cheese with fries all which are absolutely amazing. if you are Celiac this is definitely a place you need to try out.

    Service and food were awesome!! Food arrived at table fast and hot. GF mozzarella sticks were the best I've ever had. I got the GF turkey sandwich with fries. It was delicious and filling. Went back again the next night and got the chicken parmigiana. Again it was amazing!!! GF choices are many.

    It was so exciting to be able to actually eat things such as mozzarella sticks French onion soup and chicken fingers. They have a separate fryer for gluten free items. I went several times while staying in New York. Dinner breakfast and a few deliveries. This made traveling with celiacs very easy. Great staff and great food.

    gf mozzarella sticks and French onion soup with gf roast were delicious. non celiac friend's steak was overcooked, and gf chicken tenders were a little tough, but they took care of us and the selection is huge.

    When I was diagnosed with celiac 3 years ago I thought I'd never be able to enjoy true diner food again. Cafe 82 proved me wrong! Huge gf menu, including chicken tenders and fries cooked in separate fryer, and complete understanding of cross contamination. One of the few non-gf-only restaurants I can really trust. Perfect for eating out with non-gf friends.

    For a cafe, gluten free options are amazing! I was so thrilled to find good gluten-free French Toast. The food came out promptly even on a busy morning. My mom ordered a burger on gf bread with fries and was also very satisfied. Can't wait to try their other gf options! (photo attached)

    It's always a good sign when restaurant staff thinks the very idea of not avoiding cross contamination is absurd. My meal came with fries so when I ordered I asked if they were cooked in a separate fryer, and the waiter goes, "of course. Otherwise it wouldn't make sense." Separate GF menu with many options. Friendly staff and prices are not bad for the area. Food is average, but honestly that's what you're looking for at a diner, and it's nice to have that option again.

    I ate here with my seven year old son who has Celiac and my parents. It's a diner, which we never thought we'd be able to do again. It was our first time eating in a restaurant without a dedicated kitchen. I can't speak to how safe it actually is because I wouldn't know if there was accidental contamination, but I can speak to how safe they helped me to feel. There was an exclusive gluten free menu of several pages. We were told they cook everything separate and were warned that our food would take a long time because of that. Since it was an off hour, we really didn't wait very long. My son enjoyed the French toast, (which we were able to order with real maple syrup!) and I enjoyed a pasta dish with goat cheese and veggies. They use Barilla pasta and it was good with a large enough portion to take some home for lunch the next day. My Dad enjoyed their gluten free chocolate chip pancakes, and my Mom, an omelette. The service was friendly and efficient. All in all, I was impressed. Just the desserts didn't sound great and we didn't order any.

    They claim to work with the local GF group. Maybe they do but the place is crowded and not very clean. Big menu though.

    ordered gf french toast, given 4 pieces of bread with cinnamon+ sugar, but no egg wash! $11 for cinnamon toast is quite pricey I think. Does seem like they are safe for celiac however.

    Yummy GF pancakes (with and without chocolate chips) and GF french toast. Ate breakfast here on Sunday, 11 August 2013 at about 10:30 AM. A little pricy. Cafe is small and has a limited number of tables for parties of 3 or more.

    I enjoyed cafe 82 until a recent experience. The waiter accidentally gave me regular french onion soup and my friend the gf. He told me distinctly that mine was gf. Three bites in I realized the mistake since there is no gf substitute that tastes like rye bread. The waiter kept saying that it was not his fault and how did I know it was not gf!! Thankfully, it wasn't enough to equal a hospital trip, just felt really crappy for a day or so....

    By far, the best gluten free dining experience on the Upper West Side. The staff is kind, friendly, and knowledgeable and the food is amazing! I have tried the pancakes in the morning, the burger for lunch, and pasta at dinner. EVERYTHING on the gluten free menu is delicious and what I remember to taste like before I was diagnosed with Celiac 8 years ago. LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Can't say enough great things about it to do it justice!
