    Yes it's celiac friendly and delicious! The sandwiches with GF bread and the tomato soup are great. Make sure to tell them your celiac.

    Amazing that a sandwich shop can be so GF friendly- but it is! Love!

    Great adult grilled cheese and super helpful and knowledgeable! Not a sit down place more of a fast food joint but good!

    Their gluten free sandwiches are so good and the staff is super knowledgable in asking about gluten sensitivities vs. celiac and are more than happy to clean the grill before making your sandwich if you need it. Highly recommend!

    Such a fun and knowledgable staff. They cater to celiac patrons. Separate grill for their sandwiches. Custards are gluten free for dessert too! Highly recommend!!!

    Slight possibility for cross contamination but they do their best to clean the press to minimize contamination. Great sandwiches and cookies though!

    This place was amazing. The second I walked in the owner asked me if I needed help with anything. When I informed him that I am a Celiac he gave me so many options. They have Udi's gluten free bread as well as the option to put your sandwich on a bed of lettuce. Even though it is the most expensive item on the menu, the owner suggested not getting the crab sandwich on gluten free bread because it falls apart. As I was discussing some options with him, the guy cooking the food took the initiative to wipe down the grill, counter, etc. not only was the entire staff, including the owner, extremely knowledgable and considerate of my disease, they were also incredibly friendly. They all asked how my food was and offered to get me a refill. I cannot express my gratitude enough. I highly recommend Persimmon Cafe to my fellow Celiacs!

    Persimmon Cafe was amazing! The owner was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating of my severe gluten allergy. A separate gluten free sandwich grill was brought out and everything was washed down before my food was made. The food was awesome, I had the adult grilled cheese on GF Bread and a monster cookie. We will definitely be back!
