    so incredibly gluten free celiac friendly! why? Because the owner's dearest friend is ultra sensitive celiac and they just wanted her to be able to eat out. the celiac friend taught them & made the menu. bless you all for making me feel normal & getting to eat at a diner! Great food I had eggs bacon hash browns toast, took egg salad tuna platter to go. can't say enough good things about this place!

    Best gluten-free pancakes I've ever had. They are very concerned about providing safe and tasty food. They are also eager to learn and expand. Very friendly 😀

    We were on the road from Rochester to Albany and we knew we'd be looking for something to eat around Herkimer and Crazy Otto's popped up when I searched for GF in the area, so we tried it out. The service was fantastic and friendly. When I said I needed gluten free, the waitress explained that they use different prep space for cooking the gluten free items, so I felt really secure ordering. I asked for specific information about the bread, and she went back to find out what brand it was for me. The portions were huge, and I brought half home for breakfast which I'm really looking forward to. If I'm on the road I will definitely stop in again.
