Mom to 6-year-old twins who have celiac disease.

Most coffee shops don't have anything for people with celiac, so this one stands out in so many ways. They have yummy biscotti and cookies (Misty Morning Bakery?), but these are so good they are often sold out. They can do some sandwiches with GF bread, and they have a number of packaged GF "Lunchable" like meals. The staff is always nice no matter how busy they get.

Very knowledgable and accommodating (changing gloves, using clean utensils and surfaces, etc.). Good food (and a lot of options), good service, good prices.

The food is excellent and so is the service, but the celiac twins got glutened. We suspect the chips with the chips and salsa--we have eaten those safely at so many places without problems, but not today. Be careful if you are sensitive and think twice if you have CD.

Ask for the GF menu. Not a lot of options, but grilled chicken and cheddar mashed potatoes were excellent. Grilled veggies were also generous and tasty.
604 West Young Street, Llano, TX 78643
Excellent BBQ and worth the drive from Austin. The celiac twins have enjoyed the brisket, ribs, and chicken, as well as the potato salad with no ill effects on multiple occasions. We confirmed that there is no wheat/gluten in their sauce or the rub used on the meats. I won't risk sausage in general, so I didn't even ask.

Great food, no issues. Lovely outdoor dining area that's dog- and duck-friendly. A must stop for us every time we go thru Alamo City.

The sandwiches are fine if you're a fan of their bread. The meat pies are yummy, but take a looong time.
801 Town and Country Blvd, Houston, TX 77024
Kids had no issues with their yummy Mac 'n cheese. Every one else's food was quite tasty as well. surprisingly quick given how busy they were at lunch. Outdoor seating OK for dogs, too, a nice plus for an on-the-road stop for lunch.
628 14th St, Galveston, TX 77550
The food was good, the gluten-free things well marked and treated, but they were very, very slow even outside of peak lunch time. That said, the menu had a lot of normal, not fried seafood dishes, compared to other island eateries.
628 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550
Safe gluten-free pizza, a real treat for my kiddos. Everything else was good, too, but pricey relative to quality ... maybe that's just island prices.
1110 W Lynn St, Austin, TX 78703
Food is always good, and some of the staff have been trained about gluten. They have GF corn tortillas to use for taco and quesadilla dishes.
609 W 6th St, Austin, TX 78701
The food is good in general, but the GF offerings are limited to a few (tasty) composed salads and desserts.

The fryer is used only for fries, which have no batter, so they're safe for celiacs. Burgers and buns are not cooked on the same part of the grill. The celiac twins have never had a reaction to their bunless burgers. Quality ingredients.

Fairly expensive relative to quality.
