    Excellent crepes but NOT celiac friendly. When they first opened they used a dedicated griddle for the GF crepes but now that they are busy they cross contaminate it. Owner said they clean it between crepes but they don't. I ordered a GF crepe and then I stood and watched and not only do they not clean the griddle they use the same utensils for all crepes. I was "spying" because I got sick the last time I ate there - even though I've eaten there several times before and never had a reaction. My husband ate my crepe. It's disappointing because their food is good but it's definitely NOT safe for celiacs!

    Great tasting crepes, but soooo not completely gluten free. It IS contaminated with gluten! Maybe eating there once won't make you feel it but your intestines will start getting destroyed and auto immune reaction process starting! Be ware! Owner claims gluten on the griddle is killed by the heat?! Absolutely not true! Need to have dedicated griddle and tools for gluten free. It's such a shame because they are soooo friendly and great menu. Hope they will take it more serious.

    GF crepes were amazing but this is not a safe place for Celiacs. GF crepes are made on the same griddle as regular crepes. I was told by the owner that the 400 degree eat from the griddle would "kill" the gluten, which is not true since you can't kill gluten. The griddle was brushed off between crepes and they used a different roller to roll out the gf crepe but I can't recommend it for someone with Celiac Disease.

    Nearly every crepe on the menu can be made gluten free. The owners are awesomely friendly and helpful. Delicious! I have only been once, but I can't wait to go back!

    The owners are incredibly personable, and the gluten free creeps are AMAZING in both taste and texture. I always indulge in both savory and sweet when I go here because I can never choose just one! Definitely recommend.
