    Not everything was a hit, but overall it is very good. Th pizza was better than most GF pizzas I have had. The cupcakes were great. The crumble was great. The cake we ordered however, TERRIBLE. It was absolutely over sweetened and had an odd flavor. The cake also was mushy in the middle. It was such a shock, that the cake was poor when the cupcakes were so great. It was almost as if they were made from a different recipe. The cake was too thick, like pound cake and overly sweet. While the cupcakes were light and delicious. After several visits I'm just confused. I also was super disappointed on several occasions at their lack of offerings. They often run out of things, so call ahead before you make the trip! A bakery with out cupcakes and rolls? Hmmm seems a bit odd. I know it's a small business and things are made fresh, but I've never been to a bakery which ran out of stuff so often. It was not a one time deal. Often they are completely out of what they sell.

    The gluten free options are ..... not so equal to the gluten version. I've ordered several different GF dishes and none (except for the lettuce wraps) matched up to the gluten version (according to my fellow diners). The GF versions are WAY too salty and have a very odd flavor. Literally it was so salty, it burned my throat and was unpleasant to eat. Also the quality of the dishes varied with each visit. Sometimes the egg drop soup was amazing, sometimes it was disgusting. Sometimes the dishes were palatable, but most of the time they were awful. The garlic spinach, was literally just spinach... They don't add the sauce because it contains wheat. They should take it off the GF menu. It's an insult to advertise it with the sauce and then be told you can't have it. Being GF is already limiting, but then not having an honest representation of GF options- it's a cruel tease. I was horribly disappointed when I received a massively plate of soggy plain spinach. Definitely not even close to actual Chinese food. The chocolate dome is amazing. The lettuce wraps are almost always amazing.

    Limited options. I always get the cod alforno or sausage soup. Both items are very tasty. Never got sick from here.

    Limited amount of GF options and some food listed as GF, I still reacted to. I think because they are "no gluten ingredients" versus actually gluten free. :-( very tricky labeling. Be super careful.

    I love Greek food and I am so very glad that there is a restaurant which has many GF options!
