Amazing! Bacon cheddar rolls, frosted donuts, and lemon cupcakes were all divine.

Incredible toffee, delicious salted caramels

All gluten free! Too bad this restaurant isn't that great. The fried chicken is terrible, waffles just ok, and the service is aloof. But there's no where else in town I can get a safe burger. Theirs are juicy and delicious, and the buns hold up. Yum, the burgers alone will keep me coming back. I wish they would offer to sub a salad for the greasy home fries.

I have to change my review after getting glutened at this restaurant. In the past, the staff had seemed poorly trained about gluten, but I never got sick on previous visits. I guess I just got lucky before. I will not be back.

Lovely atmosphere, knowledgable servers. I tried to order the chile burger, but the chiles are inexplicably prepared with gluten. The misfit cheeseburger was divine. They offer complimentary house made cookies to all the regular folks. It would be nice if they had gf cookies for us too.

All items gluten free. Their use of sauces is too much for me, but it was nice to be able to eat sushi rolls and tempura for a change. I would eat here regularly if I lived in town.

As a celiac, I had difficulty finding a Thai restaurant that wouldn't make me sick. Let your server know about your sensitivity to gluten and ask to talk to Eric if unsure. He was very helpful and friendly. Be aware, they do serve gluten as a meat substitute. I ask for my food with no gluten and no soy sauce. Have eaten there twice with no problems. Updated 9/11/2014: I've been back a dozen times times now. The staff wants to be really helpful, but they will say things are gluten free when they're not. I've gotten sick from both chicken and duck that had the skin on. Likely marinated in soy sauce. I went back to my original order of pad Thai, pork green curry, and shrimp and scallop basil. No problems when I stick to those dishes.

I ate sushi here once and had no problems. I'm a very sensitive celiac. I recommend going at a time when they're not super busy, and order a la carte rather than the all-you-can-eat menu. I spoke to the sushi chef personally, and ordered only sashimi and nigiri. I got the charred tuna - they use a blowtorch rather than a grill so no cross-contamination there. They will bring out tamari on request.

This is my favorite hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant. They deliver to my house for no charge! Great taste and value, and they take your questions about gluten seriously. Aside from the breads, nearly the whole menu is gluten free. The papadam is 98% gluten free, so stay away from that if you're celiac. I have eaten their food at least 15 times and never gotten sick.

How disappointing. Their menu states at the bottom of each page that 90% of the menu is gluten free, and that you should alert your server if you have a food allergy. Once I found a server who understood English and the word gluten, she told me there were a few items I could order - just pho and vermicelli. She said the combo vermicelli without egg rolls would be gluten free. I got sick anyway. I had such high hopes for a new place I could eat in Oakland.

My go-to for gf groceries in the east bay. And the produce is delectable.
1628 Webster St, Oakland, CA 94612
They do gf only as a gimmick. They have a tiny gf menu, and carelessly list mussels and fries on there, though they do not have a dedicated fryer. I ended up with very overpriced soup and salad. I'm not going back.

Incredible fries made in their dedicated fryer. Love!
11 E Superior St, Duluth, MN 55802
Lots of "gf on request" options on the menu. Separate gf food prep area. The pizza crust is crispy on the bottom, but the top is moist and slightly grainy. Keep working on the recipe, Luce, you've almost got it perfect!
118 S 27th Ave W, Duluth, MN 55806
A well run business with knowledgable staff and extensive gf options. And THE best dessert I've had since my celiac diagnosis. A brownie sundae to blow your mind. They serve the same incredible gf brownie in the regular version of this dessert, so good that it couldn't be improved with gluten.

Chipotle is amazing for people with food allergies, and so delicious. Most locations bend over backward to prevent cc. At this location however, I have to watch my food the entire time to end up with a safe meal. The employees communicate poorly with customers and each other, and then the cashier gets annoyed that I don't trust in their training.
3601 Grand Avenue, Oakland, CA 94610
The food is a bit pricey for what you get, and the service lacks at times. But where else can I get a funnel cake or doughnuts? And the social skin fries rock. The chef here is celiac, and has created some fun foods to share with us.
1923 Fillmore St, San Francisco, CA 94115
I hate to give a mediocre rating since I haven't eaten here. I called to find out about cross contamination, and I was told they only have one grill where they make the burgers and grill the buns. :( however, they do have a dedicated fryer, and were able to answer my questions on the phone, so I appreciate that. Hopefully they will expand and put in a second grill for to accommodate us celiacs.

Superb food, attentive wait staff, many gluten free options
2337 Blanding Ave, Alameda, CA 94501
Not the best Vietnamese food I've had, but quite good. Confident and helpful waitstaff.
1788 4th St, Berkeley, CA 94710
The staff was friendly and helpful, so I ordered a taco. Then my husband spotted the cooks grilling meat where they had just grilled bread. Watch out for cross-contamination here!
