    I have a wheat allergy, not celiac, so I can't vouch for the kitchen safety. Contamination risk seems high if you are very sensitive because it's a tight space. Their GF bread is delicious--so soft with a great texture. The staff usually ask if you have an allergy if you order GF, but not always, so be sure to point it out. Also, the staff has told me on two occasions that their vegan meats are wheat-free, but they aren't marked GF on the website so I'm not sure I trust the answer.

    My low rating is based only on safety. Sandwiches are incredibly good; I really recommend this place if you're not as sensitive as I. But a few weeks ago, a poorly trained and enthusiastic cashier assured me I'd be safe and I wasn't. The chain owner took the time to reply personally to my complaint; he seems to take health very seriously and says his staff are rigorously trained to be as safe as possible but to not promise that cross-contam is unlikely. I wish they could train staff to prep even more safely. I'd eat here all the time if I could. Again, I highly recommend for those who don't have to worry about trace gluten.

    They do offer gluten-free bread and lots of vegan options. I wasn't sold on the bread despite hearing so many rave reviews about it... maybe it's because I've recently switched from eating gluten in the past few months and it doesn't compare to the dutch crunch.

    Gluten-free bread is offered here, but cross-contamination is very high. It is definitely not for celiacs but may be an option for others. The gf bread is very good, though much smaller than the regular sandwiches. I love the Shrek and the Luther Burbank. A manager said they're looking to offer gf English muffins as well and have been doing taste tests to find the brand they like best.

    They ask if you have a gluten allergy and alert the staff. They have amazing bread from the mariposa bakery (100% gluten free bakery) and their sandwiches are simply amazing.

    Best sandwich shop you'll ever find! They are very sensitive to gluten free people, although people with severe allergies maybe shouldnt I there just to be safe, and they get their own special gluten free bread from mariposa bakery (I believe), and everything they offer is amazing! I've never come across a better sandwich place ever, and most of my friends agree. Try it, you'll be amazed!
