    Love that they have so many gluten free and paleo options! Have had both terrific (slower daytime) and horrible (busy weekend morning) service though.

    i love pancakes. this place advertised "paleo" gf banana pancakes and "paleo" gf waffles. they cannot make the pancakes without bananas. so i asked for the waffles. which have bananas too. very annoying. i don't want bananas in my pancakes. why can't you just have regular gf food!!!

    The menu does have GF items but they are part of a larger Paleo menu. There are 5-7 choices each for breakfast and lunch, but you can also figure out that other sides and entrees can be prepared GF. The waitress was more than capable of pointing out the GF items, but I made her specially ask the chef about dairy and eggs for my other allergies. We each had pumpkin pancake combos that came with chicken sausage, each had hash browns, and one veggie wrap minus the pita. The hash browns were not advertised as GF but a great waiter listed off all the ingredients for us. The pancakes were more like French toast tasting and there was NOTHING pumpkin about them. I wouldn't order those again for $10 a plate. I didn't see the French toast on the menu that ppl mentioned. It is very disappointing that the menu isn't online nor do they have a website. Kudos otherwise for the multi allergy, paleo, flexible menu.

    First time was ok. Second time I ordered gf French toast and they brought regular. I had two bites before the waitress caught it. Sick for 3 days. It was an honest mistake, and i should have asked them to double check, but I'll never go back.
