    Not everything is Celiac friendly but staff quick to point out what was. Very good Colombian food. Check out By The Way gf bakery down street!

    This place was really fantastic for us. Seating is a smidge tight, but service was very friendly and pretty quick. And almost EVERYTHING is gluten free naturally .. awesome. The empanadas were great, asking with the tostones with guacamole were delicious (mild was hotter than we could really handle... recommend no spice if you aren't a heat lover). They also had gluten free desserts... Will definitely be back.

    As noted by others, the empanadas are really good, especially the chicken empanadas. The stuffed peppers are amazing, with lots of flavor. The red beans and rice are excellent as well. I'd say over 90% of the menu is GF, including nearly all of the Colombian food. Burgers and sandwiches (both not GF) are available for those tagging along with you and want something a bit more American.

    This meal just fixed my day. Nice warm soup, fluffy rice and attentive staff, makes all this snow so much more bearable! It's so celiac friendly they mark the few items that actually CONTAIN gluten, which makes a nice change!! Highly recommend.

    This lovely little place has yummy empanadas & pandebonos among their GF specialties. Gives the feel of a Spanish diner, eat in or take out. GF is not always marked, so ask the knowledgable staff. Try a few dessert options! Worth the trip!
