    Really good coffee & tea, but the service & execution still needs some work. Everything still feels slow & inefficient. They bring in GF baked goods from Rising Hearts Bakery (a dedicated GF bakery), but their handling of the GF baked goods (to prevent cross contamination) has been inconsistent. The GF baked goods are always on a separate plate, great start, and even often under a glass dome, even better. I've been in on days where they had two sets of tongs in 2 separate cups & were obviously using one for GF items & one for non-GF. But then after that I've been in when they were using the same tongs for everything & so we couldn't buy any baked goods. There's always a long line when I'm there so I have ample opportunity to observe the handling of the baked goods before I order. It seems to be improving. The last time I was in they were using a glove to handle the GF baked goods & tongs for the non GF stuff. But they were re-using the same one glove over & over which just made me a little leary. I think they're trying, but unfortunately I can't call them Celiac safe just yet. Hopefully I'll be able to update this review with better news eventually. I have heard that they order their GF baked goods on Fridays & the owner will special order items from Rising Hearts for you on request. I have been told the GF scones are also dairy free & they have almond milk for tea & coffee. They DO NOT use a separate toaster for the GF toast so we don't ever order toast.

    Gluten free items sell out quickly, but they usually have a selection of scones, muffins, and cookies, as well as GF bread for sandwiches and toasts. Also, almond milk for dairy free folks!
