    Lots of gluten free options, very educated, friendly, and helpful staff! I am a very sensitive Celiac and have never gotten sick eating here! Their gfree bread is amazing, their Chicken Marsala is a favorite and my son loves their Turkey Fritters... I wouldn't hesitate to eat here... even had one of their mocha chocolate brownies (well, I got one bite ,my son tore though it like a monkey on a cupcake) delish!!! highly recommend. I find it is very Celiac Friendly.

    They had a dome with cookies under it & the sign said gluten free. My son wanted one but as I inquired I learned that only ONE of those cookies was gluten free. I explained that the gluten free cookies can't be touching gluten filled cookies & she just laughed at me& shrugged. Even the workers behind the counters appeared to have no knowledge of cross contamination. We did not eat here.

    I'm here now, visiting from AZ. The staff is friendly, all the food I see looks tempting, with fresh, quality ingredients. The gluten free pancakes with berries are fantastic. Pleasant, clean cafe on a nice, quiet street buy close to the action. 5 Stars easily.

    My celiac son loves their gluten free pancakes. Many other gluten free options. I, a vegan, love the salad bar. Best salad bar in town!

    Love the taste and the variety of food here! I especially love that I can just open the menu and order (they can make virtually any item GF!), what a luxury THAT is! I am highly sensitive to cross-contamination and have never been sick in the dozens of times I've eaten at Savoy.

    Lots of great gluten-free options. Excellent salad, side and entree choices. Food was delicious! Paleo salted caramel brownie was very good. I don't have celiac so I don't have to worry about cross contamination as much, but things are in the same deli cases so it would be possible.

    I wouldn't dare eat here. They make their "gluten-free" things on the same equipment as gluten-containing things. The sandwich bar was scary. I watched them hold wheat bread over the sandwich fixings, spread stuff on with the knife that lives in the spread, pile the toppings on with crumbs dropping down. Yikes. I peeked into the kitchen and it looked every bit as scary. There was a quiche on the work area I saw with crumbs every which way. Buns and scattered crumbs live over the salad bar sneeze guard, dropping down into the salad bar itself. Flatware sits bowl, blade and tines down in a mini bucket on the table that has crumbs in the bottom. Definitely no consciousness here about sensitive celiacs, Savoy's "gluten-free" offerings are for those for whom the gluten-free lifestyle is a choice. My daughter isn't sensitive at all. She usually has to actually eat something made with wheat to get sick. She was massively ill after eating a Savoy deli sandwich and a corn muffin made in Savoy's kitchen.
