    Excellent food with so many GF options! Separate fryers and kitchen space for GF. Can't wait to come back and try other sandwiches. The staff and cook are very friendly and helpful. All of their desserts are gluten free!

    This place is my oasis of restaurants. I know the food will be delicious, the staff attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. 99% of the menu is available as a gluten free option. The chefs take great pride in the product they serve and it shows. The chef themselves are very personable and easy to talk to about any concerns. My nonceliac friends are surprised at how tasty the gf dishes are. The servings are filling. I recommend this place to everyone. You won't be sorry.

    Very friendly service. Almost the entire menu is gluten free. Very conscious of Celiac needs and no cross contamination in the kitchen. They explain all this when ordering. Also, the gluten free dessert options are incredible and unique.

    Don our server was great he explained all the options and that they keep everything separated. We had breakfast here and didn't try the desserts but there were plenty of options that sounded delicious. I had the Italian wrap which held together nicely and had a great taste. Would definitely recommend this location for celiac and gluten free.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This is a celiac GEM! The kitchen is amazing. It's separated, nothing gluten ever strays into the gluten free side. The plates are white for gluten eaters, and white with blue rim for gluten free. They make 8 different kinds of bread. I tried the mock rye and the pumpernickel....They were heaven. The ingredients are fresh. All the desserts are gf. I bought 2 lbs of gf croutons for only $3.29/lb!!! I spent far too much only because I ate an appetizer, entree, dessert, and left with a loaf of fresh bread and 2lbs of croutons. Everyone deserves a wonderful gluten-free experience like this. Gluten free or not, the service was wonderful, and the flavor was phenomenal.

    We were waiting to board a cruise boat and needed a solid breakfast and Togo lunch for our celiac daughter. Mi Island was absolutely fantastic. They thought every step through and went above and beyond to communicate with us, ensure our safety, and provide an absolutely delicious meal. And the deep fried cheesecake alone is worth the trip! Mi Island is worth going out of your way for! Quality, clean, and celiac safe food.

    Super tasty classic diner food in very casual setting. Almost everything is gf. And they have an entirely separate kitchen and fryer for gf. They make their own gf breads (have several types too!) and desserts. Great owner and staff. If I lived here I would be back often. Highly recommend.

    A small plain restaurant in a strip mall, but if you have celiac or are gluten sensitive, What a Find. The two chefs, always out by the tables, really know their stuff. Make everything on site, everything on the menu is gluten free or can be made gf. Bake and sell their own bread on premises. I had the mahi tacos, a delightful collection of flavors in a wrap. And had the fries from their dedicated fryer. Disappointed we didn't have room for the cheesecake dessert this visit.

    95 percent of menu gluten free including dessert. All of the food was fantastic! Locally owned and operated. Owners trained in allergy food preparation. Good kids menu too. Don't judge a book by its cover!

    They start off by asking if anyone in your party has gluten isseus, allergies, or other dietary concerns. One member of our party had a GF grilled cheese sandwich and another had the GF chicken alfredo. All very tasty. Nice to be able to order fries and have choices other than a salad or "something without a bun". They even had choices (white, rye, pumpernickel) for the sandwich. The GF cheesecake was awesome. Amazing GF selection. Restaurant is only about 20 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center visitor center. Ate there on Thursday, 31 March 2016.

    This is an incredible restaurant. The chefs are very knowledgeable about celiac and gluten free. They have a dedicated grill , etc. Along with all this the food is delicious. The Asian chicken taco and Asian kale salad was DELICIOUS. I will definitely go back. I understand their gf key lime pie is good. We bought one to take home. So nice to find a place like this.

    An absolutely amazing restaurant with the most welcoming staff I have ever met. They were so accommodating and friendly. Fresh made bread 3 days a week and absolutely EVERYTHING on the menu can be made gluten free. I had a Cuban with pasta salad (they made fresh for me) and the cheesecake. I will most definitely be going back again

    Good food, friendly staff, doesn't make my skin hurt. That's a winner in my book! This small restaurant has seemed to master what many larger chains neglect. With dedicated kitchen space and a separate fryer, the staff at MI Island take special care to ensure patrons with gluten allergies have dining experience. The bread is soft and tasty, and oh the cheesecake! Absolutely yum!

    Amazing food! My boyfriend is a Celiac and they had fresh bread and lots of sandwich options for him, and lots of other stuff. Plus a dedicated gluten free fryer so he could have fries! They even have yummy gluten free desserts! We stopped there twice and had lunch, as well as, bought half loaves of fresh baked bread to take with us. Love Mi Island and will always stop there when in town. 👍👍👍 Also, the staff are very knowledgeable about gluten free food etc.

    Mi Restaurant is a safe place for guaranteed gluten free and safe from cross contamination that the big chains can't promise. We were visiting from out of town and as parents of celiac child we are always cautious. The kitchen is run by trained chefs and are very knowledgable regarding gluten. The staff was very friendly and double checked with the chef numerous times to answer our concerns. Give the locally owned cafe style restaurant a chance. The food was fantastic and had options for anyone gluten free or not.

    These guys are awesome! So nice, very knowledgable and celiac safe - I learned a couple new things from them! The food was killer. Had sandwiches, sides, took a half loaf of bread home. Cheesecake and BBQ pork sand especially blew me away. Didn't even get to try the pizza. Hope I can come back sometime!

    I have Celiac Disease and I truly cannot explain how amazing this place is. They took such great care of me and were so knowledgeable. Service like their's is hard to find at any restaurant or business, but they also did my expectations as far as gluten-free businesses go. Their prices are so reasonable I couldn't believe it! They have a dedicated fryer as well as a separate area where they prepare the gf food! We will definitely be back again and again. My boyfriend doesn't have a gluten allergy and he really liked his meal as well, with the regular non-gluten-free bread. Amazing amazing amazing. I'm so happy. Give this place business! I want them to say forever.
