Can a review be a 10/5? I'm a celiac (severe gluten allergy... I know... lame. But it's a real crappy thing) and this place is PARADISE. The owner is so kind and respectful. He knows me and my order every time and there's a ridiculous selection of celiac-safe food. He has a personal connection too as a relative is a celiac. Nearly everything is Gluten free. My 3 favorites? The cupcakes, chicken cheese steak, and caprese on baguette. All gluten free! I come here nearly every week as a special treat out. I've never had any fears of getting sick here and there's even a while mini grocery story with giant celiac selection. I cannot recommend this place more to celiacs and non-celiacs alike!
Unbelievable GF Philly cheese steak and awesome selection of GF products to go (frozen baked goods, box mixes, dried pasta, etc). A Celiac haven. So glad to have found this place!!
Great cafe with lots of options. Have separate cookware to avoid cross contamination
Excellent cheese steak sub! And the desserts are wonderful! Regular pizza was great too as was the regular lasagna!
Just after I found out I have celiac I found this amazing cafe. I was thrilled to eat my first gluten-free sandwich there, and it is on the top of my list for celebrations. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is cozy and friendly, the staff are kind and thoughtful and very careful - I never have a reaction after eating there. I also stop there to stock up on items that I can't find in the grocery store. The gluten-free cupcakes are the best I've ever tasted - especially the red velvet. Thank you Davinder and staff for making this venue so celiac friendly and for all you do for the community!
Separate cooking area for GF food. They asked when we walked in if anyone was GF. Separate GF menu and the waiter confirmed when he delivered the food that each dish was GF. Very attentive to the issue and the crab cakes were excellent.
I love a good hole in the wall kinda place especially if they can do gluten free however that is premised on the assumption the place is clean. Unfortunately this place is DIRTY which ruined my experience. They do have a gluten free menu with many options. The food is so so and the service is lackluster. I do not understand the high rating of this place and will not return.
So many GF options and even a special GF menu! Our newly diagnosed son was so excited to come to a place where be could order grilled cheese - something he used to be able to eat whenever.
Gluten free baclava and lots of locally baked GF goods. GF gelato, GF sandwiches!
Excellent in all respects ! I wish it was open 24 hours !
Wonderful food and safe! Love the chicken tikka masala!
This was our second visit to Lilit. Its fantastic, so many options and love the little store in the back, always find something new and GF. My son has celiac and had the chicken cheese steak on a baguette...he love it. Staff is very knowledgeable and the food is outstanding.
I came here for dinner last night and I loved it SO MUCH that now I'm back here for breakfast. The food is absolutely delicious, they have a separate gluten free menu, almost everything on display is gluten free, and the food is absolutely delicious. Have no worries about coming here, it's gluten free heaven.
Very nice staff and good gluten free options
Excellent celiac friendly dining! I ate there with a non GF friend and she was very impressed as well. When our food was brought out to us there were 2 waiters, one with all the gluten free stuff and the other had the regular stuff. They really take cross contamination precautions seriously!
Gluten free menu with great options, plus a wide selection of gluten free beers.
Always wonderful to go to. One time the waiter noticed a fry from my husband's meal had jumped onto my rice plate before he even put it in front of me and without asking he went to get me a new one. they know their stuff and their corner of gluten free groceries is wonderful for when you are in a rush.
Wonderful g-free food and knowledgable staff. I'm extremely sensitive to cross contamination and I've been eating at Lilit Cafe regularly for over three years and have never had any issues.
Extremely helpful staff that're very knowledgeable about gluten allergies. the store is half neighborhood gf grocery and half restaurant. We had the baked goat cheese with veggies and balsamic vinegar (incredible!), pepperoni pizza, and the eggplant pesto sandwich. Everything was delicious and I will definitely return.
Best gf cafe in Washington DC. Great menu, rolls, soups. chicken cheese steaks and beef kabob are amazing. Crab cakes are good too. Can't go wrong here!
Amazing cafe that caters to gluten-free folks. I had the steak & cheese on a GF baguette and ordered the margherita pizza to go. Both were amazing and I had no problems. What a gem!
wonderful GF menu with many options. I have eaten here multiple times with no problems. owners are very welcoming.
Been going here since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Friendly atmosphere and a wide variety of items on their gf menu.
It was such a pleasure for my family to eat at Lilit's. None of us felt limited in our food choices (as in most restaurants), and everything we tried was delicious! Including the pizza! The staff is so friendly and I trusted them not to contaminate us (and they didn't! )
Great little shop - half deli, half bodega. Had a bacon egg and cheese on a gluten free bagel - delicious! Very knowledge staff and a great overall experience! They also sell Udi's and scharr products.
This restaurant caters to gluten free. They also have a bit of items to shop four of the dry shelves.
AWESOME PLACE FOR GLUTEN FREE FOOD. They even have frozen foods, snack foods and a very large menu.
Great food. Crabcake was really good (though don't expect a traditional flat and deep fries one- this is more of a mound of succulent fresh crab). Full GF menu. Great sautéed veggies and cupcake. And they have omission beer. Good concept - they sell a lot of GF foods there too. I'm not celiac but given the care they took I would try it with my daughter who is (I'm from out of town so not sure if I'll get a chance)
Great place for GF meal.
the red velvet was yummy.. i ordered a sandwitch which was great, my partner got soup and something from the regular menu, and he was happy with his food. the only thing was that there ws one server and i don't think he had much experience... but he was real nice and friendly. good food, good price... we will be back to try other options on the menu, and maybe the gelato as well
great place that has many safe gluten free options, and some are also dairy free and vegan. After you're done eating, you can browse through their small market place for items to take home. They sell a few brands of GF beer, and more importantly they sell single bottles, so you can test it out without buying a whole pack. I didnt get CCed and will definitely be going back!!
LOVE Lilit's Cafe. So many delicious gluten free options. Try their Brie Bruschetta on a gf baguette. Amazing.
Great sandwiches and snacks.
HUGE selection of packaged GF foods to take home in addition to gelato and entire menu of GF entrees. Loved it. Went there after musical at Imagination Stage. So kid friendly. Highly encourage other families to visit.
My favorite restaurant- anywhere.
My go-to place for gluten free. I have eaten here countless times and have enjoyed most everything. Love the crab cakes & gelato. Sandwiches are very good as well. I'm hoping they will expand the menu.
Best gluten free restaurant I have ever been to! They serve sandwiches, lasagna, pizzas and much much more. The best part about this place is that the menu is incredibly eclectic so there is something for everyone. The restaurant is also a wine and food store so after dinner you can stock up on GF foods and great wine. The staff is very friendly. They remember their customers and are very welcoming. I love the cheese plate and the Italian sandwich on a baguette.
Great option and yummy
Great sandwiches with Against The Grain bread.
Gf crab cakes!!!! Need I say more? Great breads, very accommodatimg. Even have cheesecake!
Been going here since it opened! Great GF sandwiches, service, everything. I also buy my "sweet sin bakery" bread from here...essential!
Pastrami was a little dry but tikka masala was amazing!!! Cupcakes were okay for GF. Cute little hole in the wall with everything we needed for a GF night out.
specializes in gluten free food! absolutely worry free with so many options.
Another great meal. Soup and crab cake sandwich.
Wonderful selection of gluten free choices! I ordered the meat lasagna with salad and croutons and they were absolutely delicious. My mom joined us and ordered the gf veggie pizza...thickest gf crust I have ever seen! She also got the lamb chops with mixed vegetables which were also yummy! The gelato and cupcakes are gf as well and were scrumptious. It was nice that they had a little market where I could buy other gluten free things, including some of their cupcakes and other pastries/desserts.
great place. tasty food. wide variety. gf priced right :)
Wow!!! Gluten free lasagna that tastes better than regular. Great crab cakes, baked goods, good pizza and generously stocked shelves of gluten free products. I'm buying a GF Pecan Pie for Thanks Giving. I'm also picking up some Schar GF pasta. All in all, a terrific resource for those of us who must remain GF.
Excellent food, great variety.
Extensive GF menu. Good food. Casual atmosphere. Several GF beers available and inexpensive wine.
Gluten free sandwiches & desserts - love coming to this place to eat. always great service and a yummy meal!
Excellet gluten free pizza crust and baguette, they also have gelato, as well as gluten free cakes and other baked goods. Large gluten free menu, overall delicious food.
an entire menu gluten-free. had the pizza and crab cakes. crab cake was excellent, pizza was good, not great. and you can buy a bottle of wine in their market and drink it with dinner. red velvet cake a little dry. but they are really making an effort here.
I love this place. It is awesome. Prices are slightly above average and portions are slightly below average. But it is well worth it to have a cheese steak or lasagna that you would never even know is gluten free. I have yet to try the pizza here
Wow! Great food, great service, great value!
