About Me


Hi, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in May, 2013 after 40+ years of misery. Lately, I've discovered that I'm also allergic to dairy & coffee. I am finally settled in my new diet & eating more healthy & natural bc of it. I've discovered Thai & Indian cuisine is not that difficult to make & tasty!

    Helpful associates & good GF bread selection. I was happy to find a couple items that were generously reduced.

    A girl's got to have chocolate! We stepped into this tempting downtown store bc my husband loves homemade fudge. I figured there would be nothing for me but was pleasantly surprised when I was directed to a small table w prepackaged specialty dark GF & DF chocolates. Expensive but it satisfied my craving & didn't make me sick at all. HAPPY!

    Great outdoor waterfront dining with a good selection of GF choices. I ordered the turkey club special w a GF bun & requested just a couple things taken off. What I got was turkey lunch meat & lettuce slapped into a bun. Our waiter apologized & was very gracious, allowing me to change my order to a hamburger w GF bun. It was huge & scrumptious! I will come back when in the area.

    Incredible! Excellent service, knowledgable staff & a beautiful view. They have many choices for gluten & dairy free & an amazing dark chocolate cake w raspberry sauce. Everything was absolutely delicious. If I could, I would give Pipers 10 stars. When in the area, this will be my restaurant of choice.

    Being GF & DF, I was pleasantly surprised at my choice of dining options. I ordered the California Turkey Club wo the avocado condiment & had fresh avocado added instead. The GF buns were so full of scrumptious filling but well worth the wrestling match. Mmmmm! Awesome service & very knowledgable & accommodating. I will def return.

    Gr8 attitude & very willing to accommodate. Having CD, I have to be very careful so I actually stand where I can watch them prepare my food. Except for the grill guy using the same spatula they use to flip cheese for the burgers & accidentally putting my families burgers in the same bag as the fries, everything has been gr8. I kindly bring it to their attn whenever I see them mess up & they always offer to re-do. I love this place!

    Having CD I specifically asked the server if they had a GF menu. Bc he didn't know he went to ask & returned with a very disappointing response ...the head chef says no, we do not! I was with friends & we were celebrating someone's BD, so this was very awkward to say the least. So I ordered a salad wo croutons. When I inquired abt GF salad dressing, again... They had no knowledge if their SD was GF. Plain salad, no dressing for me! It wasn't until we were almost ready to leave that a manager came to see if our dining experience was enjoyable. When I explained my frustration, he apologized & explained that I had been misinformed. He even offered to store my personal SD in the kitchen next time I visited so I would always have a nice salad. This experience was very awkward & frustrating. I will not be back.
