    Was excited to finally visit, but super disappointed that the only truly GF things they had were salads. The menu showed other items as GF but when I tried to order them they told me they didn't have a dedicated fryer so the items weren't actually GF. I ended up just getting the tomato soup. Overall a bit of a disappointment.

    They do not have a devoted gf deep fryer, but yet the menu states the fries etc are gf. The waitress was great to share the info, and ask celiac or intolerant. However, I loved the gf grilled portobello salad. It's a 5 star salad.

    Forget it. Went for brunch and only options were salads. The omelette they said was gf turned out to contain sausage with wheat and only after I questioned the waitress numerous times. This is why I ask in the first place. Asked if I could instead have a plain omelette with tomato and feta...answer was no. Ridiculous. Don't go.

    The Cafe is a mainly vegetarian restaurant located on Southard Street only minutes away from the bustling Duval Street tourist traffic. Their menu labels their gluten-free options and offers a range of choices from tasty soups and sweet potato fries to salads and Mahi-Mahi. This healthy restaurant has something for everyone and their funky d├ęcor will also make you feel right at home.

    I loved this place until when I went there yesterday and ordered the sweet potato fries (like always) and specified that I had an allergy, the waitress came back and said that the fries are fried in the same fryer as breaded things, and asked "Is that okay?". Are you F'ing kidding me? The French fries are SPECIFICALLY MARKED "GF". And they decided to tell me about my 6th time having them. I probably got a stomach ache or had bathroom issues and assumed I ate too much, it was cleaning out my system in a good way, or that I had dairy somewhere else. I'm NEVER going here again.

    A few food options, though limited to mostly salads if you're sensitive since fryers are shared. They do have GF beer though.

    They cater to vegan however, they are more than accommodating for GF. Menu is marked and staff is knowledgable. Very large, delicious, and unique plates. Plus they have GF beer! If you are GF and in Key West you need to eat here.
