Just happened upon this restaurant today on our way back to CT. Absolutely loved it. Lots of GF options. Even got a delicious GF oreo muffin. So yummy.
The owner is gluten free and is extremely knowledgeable and overly cautious. I got a grilled cheese and was blown out of the water! Can't wait to try more things from here!!
This place was FANTASTIC! I got s delicious gf quesadilla. I also got two desserts. A muffin and a brownie. The staff was wicked nice and knowledgeable. I'm lucky I don't live closer or I'd lose my entire paycheck to this place. They also have options for vegans. :)
Had such a great experience with my kids this morning! My daughter (3yrs old) is celiac and was so excited that she could order anything off her "special" menu! Her French toast was delicious as was mine (I ordered from the regular menu). Service was fantastic as well! Can't wait to go back!
GREAT Find! The owner is GF therefore is extremely diligent on taking caution to not cross contaminate. So happy we found this place, I can feel comfortable my daughter will not get sick after dinning. The 2nd best part is you’re not paying $11-15 for GF Pancakes. It’s all served at NORMAL prices and the food is outstanding!
Best GF breakfast around! Service is always great. They have separate GF menus for adults and kids that include both the basics as well as some creative options. As a celiac, we have never had an issue after eating here.
This place is a gem. Friendly servers and very safe for celiacs. Our favorite breakfast spot by far!!
had a gluten free quesadilla there today. it was well prepared and staff was very friendly. spoke with chef who is celiac herself
Delicious! GF menu with a ton of options! Very accommodating to allergies.
Had banana cream French toast and a side of toast. Highly suggested. Didn't even have to ask for a GF menu. The waitress already had it ready to offer... First for me!
Very special place. Super friendly and multiple choice menu for people with gluten intolerance.
This place is AMAZING. Specials are even gf!! The chef makes sure there is no cross contamination of any kind. The food is delicious and the menu is vast. They even do separate snacks, pies, cakes, and other treats for special occasions that you can purchase. Very friendly staff.
it's amazing how many options you have on the gluten free menu. I had French toast, bacon and home fries....delicious. Server asked immediately of we needed gluten free menu. Definitely will be returning. Went during the week, no wait for a table
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.
place is amazing!!!! I've never had such awesome gf French Toast before.
So nice to know there is separate cooking equipment for gluten-free & I can eat without worry!
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.
Great service, great food, reasonable prices
Excellent food that is celiac friendly. The owner is very considerate of different types of food allergies.
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.
The Purple Rooster was fabulous! Food and service were wonderful. Will definitely return on our next trip from Pennsylvania!
Very gf knowledgable , lots of choices
Walked in the door and was immediately asked if I'd like a gf menu. Friendly staff. Owner came out to check how our visit was. Interesting gf options and many of them. Very tasty. Fun little eclectic location.
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.
We go here regularly. They are meticulous about keeping their GF food GF. There's a huge menu of GF options - equal in size to the regular menu. They're super friendly. We love everything about this place. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
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.
Love this place especially the GF pancakes!!
Great place! Really good menu and the owner is unbelievable. You need to check it out even if you don't have a gluten allergy.
HUGE GF menu with tons of options. Very accommodating. Creative dishes with reasonable prices. Super friendly and inviting workers. Can't wait until I am in the area again!
Amazing food at a reasonable price! I highly recommend eating here
Wow! What a nice little cafe. Great breakfast and lunch - both gluten free and regular menu. Highly recommended.
