    We met my parents here to celebrate my daughter's birthday - both my kids (8 and 10) are Celiac. When I told my son that he could order "ANYTHING" on the menu his eyes just about popped out of his head and his jaw dropped. The waitress was amazing - first question was if anyone had allergies. Love the kitchy-ness of the place: mis-matched mugs, old airline flatware - very fun. My kids both had GF pancakes, a rare treat when eating out. They also split a tasty GF pumpkin/cinnamon chip muffin - we had to order a couple to take home! Our non-GF food was delicious, too. Plenty of hot coffee refills and they even had warm apple cider for the kids. It's a 1/2 hour drive for me, an hour for my parents, and we will be meeting at the Purple Rooster Cafe again as soon as we can! My son already has it planned for his birthday in February (although I want to go before that!). Well done and thanks for making our visit worry-free! Happy kids, happy parents :-)

    This place is out of this world amazing. When we sat down, we were greeted politely and asked if we needed any gluten free menus. The gluten free menu is HUGE! It includes muffins, sandwiches, grilled cheese, French toast, pancakes, bread, as well as traditionally gluten free items (eggs, bacon, homefries, etc). I ordered a muffin and gluten free apple cinnamon French toast, and both were absolutely DELICIOUS. Everyone there is friendly and seems to be extremely knowledgeable about celiac, gluten free food, cross contamination, etc. The cafe is cute with a homey atmosphere and service was excellent. I can't say enough good things about this place- if you get the chance, GO!

    Food was good and we were happy with the options, which included breads and pancakes. However the service was extremely slow considering it wasn't full. Took over 20 minutes to get our food after waiting over 15 to order. Seemed like they were making one tables food at a time.

    The best gluten free selection I have ever seen! Best gluten free muffin and sandwiches I have ever had! This place brought me back to my non gluten free days!

    Amazing! I've never been anywhere with a gluten free menu that was so large. They are very careful about cross contamination and the food is delicious. This is my new favorite spot.

    They have a HUGE GF menu. I've tried the s'mores French toast, banana walnut pancake, chicken quesadilla and grilled cheese on cinnamon raisin. Everything is delicious and I get great service every time I come here. They are super serious about their gluten free and have everything separate. The owner is gf as well. Very small quaint place and very good food.

    Absolutely amazing food and great staff!!!! Lots of yummy choices for my daughter who is trying to eat gluten free. Also, if you are a vegetarian, the veggie sausage and bacon was delicious. Lots of choices from eggs, and homefries to smore pancakes with marshmallow and hot fudge. Very tiny and quaint place with an extremely friendly staff.

    Staff is very knowledgeable and they have a dedicated grille just for gluten free. The menu is extensive and when I went it wasn't very busy at all.

    Honestly, after finding out that I had a gluten allergy, I wasn't sure that I'd ever have food that was as tasty as I once enjoyed...I am Happy to say that Purple Rooster Cafe has proven me wrong...Not only was the service wonderful, and very hospitable...The food was impeccable! The breakfast I had here, was actually the best ever...GF or otherwise! I brought along my boyfriend and his Grandparents, and they were actually equally impressed...I am looking forward to going back ASAP

    Nice menu of basic American breakfast & lunch foods. Three kinds of GF breads. Dedicated GF grill. Nice staff. Peaceful atmosphere. Daughters (not GF) and I (GF) very much enjoyed our lunch here. I had breakfast food (eggs, bacon, home fries & toast); they had lunch fare (sandwiches). [May 2012] [Update May 2013] - love Love LOVE this place! Yummy food. Breakfast, lunch, baked treats... You can't go wrong. The staff is super friendly. They take the responsibility of serving GF food VERY seriously. To have the option of GF pancakes and french toast in a restaurant is just delightful. Whole family of six loves dining here. Prices are good, too. (MORE UPDATE - I wish there were a way to reply to other's posts. Amanda's typo in her review is unnerving. Trust me, the gluten free grill is DEDICATED, not defecated!))

    Dedicated gluten free grill and utensils. Huge gluten free menu and good food. I also ordered a dessert from their gluten free holiday menu, to bring to a party and everyone loved it, even the non gluten free people.
