    Although everything tasted good and seemed fine at the time, there must have been a serious cross-contamination problem. I won't be returning.

    They have a good sized GF menu. The GF pancakes are good. I haven't tried the GF cinnamon roll yet, but I want to!

    This is the first place I was able to eat pancakes after my diagnosis, and I am so glad they have GF options because I love going out to breakfast with my mom! The pancakes were fluffy and much bigger than I thought they would be (I guess I am used to GF foods having a high price for a tiny amount), but they were a bit bland. The GF cinnamon roll was delicious! This place always seems to have about a 30 minute wait on Saturday mornings so get there early.

    Wonderful place for a gluten-free breakfast! The gluten-free cinnamon roll was amazing! This place is able to accommodate dairy free as well. General manager Will was very helpful.

    WOW! I was so happy eating here today. I was thrilled with the amount of choices on the gluten free menu. I had a hard time deciding what to get, which is something I don't get to deal with often! :) I finally decided on the gluten free cinnamon roll meal. I got a cinnamon roll, eggs, sausage, and toast and it was all absolutely delicious and I felt great afterwards! My food was plated on a gf only plate which is always good to know! Absolutely recommended!

    This is not truly a gluten free menu. I have eaten 5 different gluten free meals here and have gotten sick on every one of them. There is cross contamination so if you have celiac disease like I do this is not the place for us.

    Ask your server straightaway for the GF menu (yes, they have a dedicated menu, woo!). There are many options for GF diners and the food is excellent. The cinnamon roll breakfast is a MUST. They do state, right up front, a cross-contamination risk but, quite frankly, I think most restaurants run that risk (unless dedicated GF) but don't bother mentioning it.

    This place has a very good gluten-free bun for sandwiches and breakfast. They used to have awesome pancakes, but they switched brands to something that is awful...the pancakes are kind of beige when cooked. The cinnamon buns are not good either. The scrambles, egg dishes, etc. are all excellent, but the only gf specialty item there I can eat is the bun.

    The previous reviewers are right about the cinnamon bun breakfast! YUM-TASTIC! The potatoes are off the chain delicious as well! The staff understood a food allergy and I am excited to report zero reaction! HUZZAH! The only con with all these pros is that I wish the portions were larger. But then, I'm not sure they COULD serve me a portion large enough if I'm completely honest!

    My husband and I had breakfast here and it was delicious! He had a skillet, which probably would have been gf anyway, but they prepare it so as to be sure. I had a gf cinnamon roll which was delicious! There is a wise variety of breakfast foods (including pancakes) as well as lunch sandwiches. The menu is very nice and includes the prices so you don't need the full menu too. They people were very friendly and understood our needs. I am celiac and careful about what I eat and I was very happy with the food we got here!

    The gf menu says they don't guarantee no cross-contamination. I thought I was going to a bakery and instead walked in to a very busy cafe during Mother's Day brunch! The register staff were a little clueless but the kitchen staff were great. They let me place a to-go order and worked with me to make a substitution when they were out of a gf item I ordered. Don't try to order takeout for the road like I did - plan time for a sit down breakfast and enjoy the full spectrum of their varied gf menu!

    Yes, they have a GF menu with GF pancakes. However, my omelette was microwaved and had hard cheese on top as if it had been frozen. I've had much better food at the Wheaton EH.

    I had the Geneva Rosti a Swiss egg dish with shredded potatoes, bacon, and two kinds of cheese. It almost looked like a pizza. It was served with a beautiful fresh fruit dish with melons, pineapple, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and an orange slice. The food was delicious and my waiter was wonderful!

    Great GF menu options, fun service, what more could you ask for? This location serves Sweet Ali's products. Be forewarned, the waits can be long during traditional "brunch" times, especially on Sundays. Call ahead before you. If you do go they have a lovely park across the street to wait in if the weather is nice.
