    First Watch has two gluten free menus. The green one is difficult to use but the photocopy one is easy to use. Their omelets are really good. I have been there numerous times with never a problem and I have full classic celiac sprue.

    This restaurant had no specific gluten free items such a bread, pancakes, or waffles. The quinoa chicken and cherry power bowl didn't have gluten free dressing. I was VERY disappointed, as I had hoped better of this chain.

    This is NOT a gluten free friendly restaurant. They did not provide a menu, the wait staff was NOT friendly not knowledgable, and we were told to check the Internet. They have some options that don't contain gluten but eat at your own risk of cross contamination. I won't ever go to any of these establishments again.

    There is no "Gluten-Free Menu" they have very slim options such as eggs and potatoes, but no full GF options. They do however have a gluten-free guide that says what there is that you can order without a english muffin or something to make it GF. The waitress was very argumentative about us claiming we read about the gluten-free menu and even checked the website to prove us wrong. After us conceding and saying we were wrong, she was delighted to serve us. Good restaurant, not gluten free.

    Their idea of a gf menu is a list of all the food you couldn't have that contains gluten. Staff was not particularly helpful & I question their knowledge. Wouldn't recommend it for anyone who needs to be serious about food allergies.

    I ordered an omelette off the GF menu with seasoned potatoes. The omelette was huge and after I ate it I commented that there must be a lot of eggs in there. The waitress said she only thought there may be 2-3 eggs. I wondered what else could have made them so fluffy? My stomach later told me that they may have used done kind of flour. I suffered for a few days. Beware!!!!

    This is a frequent venue for us and we enjoy the lakeside tables when it is not too hot. You need to be very specific with your order, eg: "No English muffin, but I would like the breakfast potatoes" and that seems to work just fine. It would be helpful to have a gluten-free menu rather than a list of what to avoid. However, I have never been glutened here and we always enjoy our visits.

    Today we decided to do a gluten free lunch! We looked for a restaurant in Stuart FL using the App for the first time! This restaurant in does not do Pamela's gf pancakes! The waiter has a sister eating gluten free so knew what we were looking to eat. He was personable and excellent but could not guide us through the menu. Very disappointing! First Watch, if you post on the gf app, please have what is advertised or redo your post! Disappointed!

    Beware if you are gluten-free. The waitress told me something was gluten free when I specifically asked her and it was not, she wrote "gluten free" all over the ticket that went back to the kitchen and the chef didn't even know that what he was providing me was not gluten free (or he didn't care) and I later found out from their web-page that the item I ordered clearly had gluten in it.

    So I saw on this app it leads to believe this restaurant uses Pamela's Gluten Free Baking Mix, thinking they would have gf pancakes or waffles. So I went and asked for the gf menu, but all I got was one of those allergy menus where you have to look at the "wheat" section and see which is safe. Only a handful of items stated there was no wheat, and they were just side items. Nothing mentioned of pancakes or waffles. I just ordered bacon, eggs, and potatoes. It was good but I was disappointed in the very little options for gf, especially with no pancakes or waffles. And I'm not sure how their strictness is on cross contamination, so I'm giving it a "No" for celiac friendly.

    I am intolerant so I'm not sure about Celiac. I'm giving this three stars because, while the food that I had was good, I could have gone to Cracker Barrel for less money and more flavor. When I clicked on the gluten free menu online on my phone it kept showing me pancakes and waffles so I assumed they served gf pancakes and waffles. When we got there I found out I was wrong. It's just unclear on the mobile menu. The gf menu has every single menu item on it with "no bread" or "pancakes are not gf" which would have taken for ever to read. I just pieced together a bunch of sides since I can't eat eggs either. If you can eat eggs and dairy this is still a good option. If you are looking for pancakes and waffles, sorry friends, this is not the place.

    The only options, surprise, eggs. (Nasty fake eggs) Oh and a bowl of yogurt (a lot of Celiacs are lactose intolerant so...) our server was really slow and awkward, she didn't check on us after bringing our food and both our glasses looked like they hadn't been washed, when we pointed it out, she wiped them with a rag and gave them back, WTF! I think it sucks that everything comes with a side bagel or muffin and they can't substitute like a banana or anything else so I end up with less food for the same price and hungry. I left hungry. Can a breakfast place that boasts about having gluten free options please try to offer something else then eggs and lactose or full price dishes where you can't eat 1/2 the food it comes with, thanks.

    Come prepared. The gluten-free menu is only online- no printed in-restaurant copies. Very little is gluten-free (but many things can be specially-made upon request) and you have to be very clear with the wait staff about what allergies you have. The cafe itself and the people are very nice, but know what you need before you go in.

    They don't have a dedicated menu, but can make a few things: Ham, potato's, eggs, omelette, bacon and sausage. We all ordered gluten free since I don't have to but do because my husband and son are both GF. Just easier that way. Our breakfast came and I had half my Gluten-free omelette eaten, when our server brought out a new one to me and said the cook said she put bread on that omelette before it was served to you. I was glad that it was mine and not my son's breakfast, but then I wondered how careful are they in the back? I didn't need the other omelette and wished they would have been a bit more careful and had checked with me before they cooked another one. I did appreciate that they did that, but the omelette was half eaten before they told me it had bread on it. Hoping they are a bit more careful for people who have severe reactions from either celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity issues.
