Very accommodating. Use Udi's gluten free bread and bagels. Told me that they could change their gloves to make my sandwich and also made me aware that they use regular bread on their panini press, which is great to know especially for those who are celiac. Delicious food!
There is no GF toaster or grill so be prepared for a cold Udi's bagel. I mean, a toaster is what, $25? Just get one already! I got an Udi's bagel lox platter and it was pretty good! They made sure to get cream cheese from the back for me. Older man, owner? Was very nice Good news is they have a bunch of different coffees to choose from and it's self serve so you can mix up vanilla and cinnamon coffees for example. So that's good.
Purebread Glen Mills PA might be gluten friendly, but employees need the customers to spell out that we are gluten intolerant or have celiacs. I asked about every ingredient on a sandwich to make sure there were no ingredients that contained gluten. Manager confirmed everything was good. Needless to say I had issues. We called the restaurant to check ingredients again and the manager said I needed to say I have celiacs or they would cut my sandwich with the same knife. Clearly they didn't understand cross contamination. Not sure how non-gluten friendly this staff really is. I do love the pictures of the dogs though.
Purebread uses Udi's multigrain bread, but has no concept of cross-contamination. After asking them to use a clean knife for my sandwich, I saw the guy just wipe the knife with a towel. It's a shame because their sandwiches are good but it's not worth feeling sick afterwards.
Stopped in and asked what precautions they staff took to address cross contamination. The order taker ha no clue what I was talking about; manager stepped in and stated: We make our gluten free items on the same board we make out other sandwiches on. I then asked about knives, changing gloves, etc.... She stated they did not take special precautions, only offer gluten free breads, and bagels. Beware!
I hate going out to breakfast with friends or just wanting a sandwich because most restaurants rarely have good gluten free bread. Pure bread has gluten free bread and bagels that are fluffy and perfect for their already great sandwiches. They are always friendly, very clean (they even have hand sanitizer for customers up by the register), and the dog breed theme makes the room very cozy. I haven't been able to find the exact bread and bagels they use in the store, but I will continue to come here whether I find the bread to use at home or not. Every GF person should know about Pure Bread!
