    I had the gluten free version of the coconut and chocolate chip pancakes. We had a little wait while they set up the separate griddle, but the pancakes were worth waiting for, with a nice texture and good taste.

    Tasted good. But I only ate 1/3 before I started getting sick. They claim they cook GF separate but my stomach is telling me different. Would be a great place to eat if eating for a GF fad diet but not for someone with Celiac. They sure didn't seem to care that I am sick either.

    The BEST GF pancakes I've ever had. I got the coconut and chocolate chip pancakes and they were phenomenal. The kids loved their GF French toast. We'll be back!!!

    Pancakes were phenomenal- tasted just like I remember a GOOD buttermilk pancake to be. Hollindaise sauce is also gf, so I got to have that as well! I will say the bread (think they use Udi's), fell apart a bit in a Benedict, but again, a rare treat! Waitress warned me about contamination in home fries- took the risk and am feeling a bit off. Home fries are okay, but not good enough to risk the contamination again.

    Pancakes were better than non-gf pancakes! Highly recommend the king cakes.

    Choose from many gluten-free pancakes flavors. Try the King Cakes: two mini pancakes with bananas, chocolate chips inside with peanut butter and whipped cream.

    Gluten free French toast!! Not on the menu, but they can almost always make it.

    Delicious pancakes! I also double checked to make sure there wasn't a mistake. Very good! Would go back in a heartbeat!

    The gf m&m pancakes were so light and fluffy we actually double-checked to make sure they weren't regular pancakes. They were incredible! The chef accidentally made gf King's Cakes (2 chocolate chip banana pancakes with peanut butter in the middle) that weren't needed so they brought those to our table for free. Phenomenal!!! Friendly people and delicious options-- all pancakes except the pumpkin ones can be made gf. I would definitely return.

    Went to get the kids GF pancakes as advertised. They weren't serving GF pancakes today. Didn't have any bread options either. I would not classify this restaurant as a GF friendly location.

    This place is really just a sensory overload, in a good way. They are great about gluten allergies. This place is also known for combining different and strong flavors into a meal that is just so amazing. Dont go for something safe here, try something different. They offer gluten free options for their sandwiches, but i will always get the chorizo burrito without the wrap because it is so great. The flavors are so intense! Make sure to get it with home fries. They offer gluten free pancakes too. My favorite is the king cakes which have bananas and chocolate chips and have a layer of peanut butter in between and a great cream sauce on top.
