The zen bowls are GF and I have zero reactions every time I order that. The grilled sandwiches are a no-go since the grill is a shared surface and no foil used between the sandwiches. Service is kinda slow but do-able on an hour lunch.
not many options to choose from, but staff knowledgeable. Be sure to ask about specific menu items as I originally ordered the grilled salmon and later found out it was marinated in gluten-containing ingredients. Staff did work with me to correct my order before I was served. Original order was my own fault for not asking questions like I normally do. Staff said that they prepare GF foods in a safe place and "it is critical you tell me next time." 3 stars just because menu not labeled well for GF items and also not many choices.
This restaurant offers well prepared food of a very high quality, much of which happens to be vegetarian or vegan and/or gluten-free. For someone with gluten intolerance who eats vegetarian, this is an amazing place. There's a beautiful salad bar, some delicious gluten-free soups, and an array of sandwiches that can be prepared gluten-free upon request. I particularly recommend the minestrone, which is not offered nearly often enough--it is scrumptious. The only drawback is the price. If one orders a la carte, as vegetarians often do, it can be quite pricy. I am glad this restaurant is in Chico.
