    We went here two days in a row because I was so excited for breakfast options. I got the breakfast bar with both (fresh fruit, fruit compote, homemade whipped cream) which was amazing. (Yes, there are possible contamination issues as this is buffet style, but I tried my best and didn't get any symptoms.) The French toast was melt-in-your-mouth and the crepes I got were simply delicious. (Those were a special and I don't remember the exact name.) It's a very loud environment, you might have a long wait, but the staff was great and the food was absolutely worth it.

    French toast! Oh... My... Goodness it's heaven! Bf (celiac) had a small reaction last time but was fine in previous visits. Very delicious.

    Homemade bread that is the best toast/French toast ever. Multiple menu options available. Worth the price tag to support incredibly good local food.

    Choose from options like rice and tapioca flour Swedish Pancakes and Vegan Banana Pancakes or pick Gluten-Free French Toast made with homemade bread. The options are mouthwatering and wor th the wait. All served with maple syrup.

    I immediately felt sick a few minutes after my first bite which never happens. I had pancakes. Maybe I should have had an egg dish or something without spreads and sauces.

    NOT SAFE FOR CELIACS. When our waitress heard I was celiac she advised me not to eat any of the gluten free products because they use the same toasters and even French toast batters

    Would give zero stars if I could. Despite "GF" entries on menu, massive cross contamination. I had a long conversation with our server about cross contamination, and all seemed well. He seemed to understand that I was celiac, assured me that eggs would be done in their own pan, etc. Yet, unbeknownst to me, they cut & toasted "GF" toast on the same cutting board and in the same toaster as the normal bread. Fortunately I asked more questions, and didn't eat the toast, but I still left with a really bad feeling.

    Great place to eat! Worth the wait (hostess said 45 min wait, we waited 20). Big portion sizes. Most places with a GF option add an up charge and you get a smaller portion, here you have the up charge but get the same (or bigger) portion. Just looking at the menu makes it look expensive, but the portion sizes are worth the price; which makes it about mid range on price. Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is; the sitting area feels like a school cafeteria, with cement floors and the tables packed in tight. It made it really loud, which made me feel like I had to yell across the table.

    MAJOR cross-contamination, but luckily they warned me about it before I ordered. Not as gluten free friendly as they advertise. French toast goes in the same exact batter as the non gluten free version and the toast is toast in the same toast. Seriously disappointed.

    I was so grateful to order my first non-homemade gluten free pancakes since going gluten free. I got the vegan pancakes- recommended by the waitress as the best syrupy option. They were fluffy and awesome!!! The only problem I had is that my first batch came out undercooked but they made a second fully cooked batch for me and I loved them!

    So many gf options. I tried the Buckwheat pancakes and I did not like the taste, but this was my first experience with buckwheat. The waitress helped me select a different dish. I got the crepes with lingonberries and they were amazing!!! Highly recommend for good service and excellent food.

    Glutened here immediately. Knew it after a few bites. They don't do anything to prevent cross contamination (they warned me not to get the toast or GF pancakes, etc) so I got the hot buckwheat, but was so sick anyway. Should have trusted my instincts and not eaten here at all. 100% not safe for celiacs. Go to Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe instead, they are awesome: separate prep areas and safe delicious food.

    Yummy home made bread. Watch out for communal jelly which can get crumbs. Best GF French Toast we've ever had! LONG lines on weekend mornings.

    If you are gluten free in Seattle and don't go here for breakfast you are crazy. Gluten free French toast, pancakes, toast, and it all tastes amazing. And there's a toppings bar with fruit and nuts etc. Sausage and potatoes also all yummy. It's a good thing I don't live nearby, I'd be broke and huge. Oh and the coffee is perfect and served in huge mugs

    You know this place is great by the line outside. But come a little earlier to skip that. We have found delightful sumptuous g- free options. Friendly staff, good service.
