• Opera House Coffee & Food Emporium

    Update: Overpriced for poorly cooked food. The ingredients are great, flavors good, but they just can't cook meat without burning or over cooking it really badly. I'm so disappointed by this place. Still celiac friendly and paleo friendly though. The paleo menu is fantastic and I love that they actually specify for paleo people and not just gf! Makes it even easier for my diet. The burger I had was a little charred, but I loved the brussel sprouts and the guacamole was different than any I've ever had but really creamy and good. A bit pricey, but worth it for the grassfed options.

    The owner is very knowledgeable and the tamales are gluten-free as well as having gf sandwich bread. He makes the tamales away from cross-contaminants. (Update) Fantastic tamales! The owner is so nice and the food is great. You should support this local restaurant! Safe for celiacs and a hidden gem.

    I've eaten here a billion times over the years and I only barely recommend it. Years ago, I loved it when gf items were scarce. But I've had shoddy service, gotten glutened more than once, and had a waitress huff at me about wanting some extra tamari. The food isn't consistent in quality or spice level and the service is spotty at best. You also risk getting glutened, depending on what you order. Go to Sweet Siam on the Kansas side instead.

    Like any Chipotle. The old standby. Went at a slow time and they were happy to change gloves, etc.

    I don't know how you can avoid cross-contamination here. What a mess.

    Extremely accommodating, very good to their customers. Had a big family gathering here with many different dietary needs and everyone could eat. When I reviewed them well on yelp they even responded telling me that they were happy we enjoyed our visit and that the waitress and event organizer got a bottle of wine because of their good work with us. I love supporting a local-food restaurant and The Farmhouse does it right.

    I had my wedding reception here and they were amazing about all kinds of allergens/celiac needs. I cross-react with eggs (and dairy to a small degree) and they made sure everything was perfect. Even eating there before my wedding reception as a normal guest they were very accommodating. The food is also fantastic. If you tell them it's a serious allergy/celiac they will even prepare foods a little differently for you.

    Great menu and really good food and drinks. The staff is also really knowledge about celiac. They're super nice about it too and talk up the gf selections. I've gone here for lunch and for happy hour apps and drinks and have been really happy both times. Have not gotten sick.

    Super accommodating with all sorts of allergies/celiac. I have to avoid dairy and eggs at the moment for cross reaction issues and they were really helpful. Also they list all the drinks that are gf! I love when places do that. The kicker, the food is DELICIOUS. I had scallops with jasmine rice and it was amazing. Definitely a pricy meal, but this was a birthday dinner so totally worth it.

    No dedicated gf menu here, but I can eat any of the basic sushi items and the miso soup and have never gotten sick (wasabi is also fine). The staff are so, so nice and welcoming and the sushi is the best I've had in Hampton Roads. They take really good care of their customers. Bring your own gf soy sauce or coconut aminos, though!

    333 Waterside Dr., Norfolk, VA 23510

    This location is pretty sub-standard. I was really unimpressed when my fiancé and I ordered the prime rib to split and ended up getting the heel end of it that didn't even have any filet on it. And we ordered the largest size! As for gluten-free it's like any other chain Outback: decent selection, but the quality just isn't there at this one.

  • Baker's Crust Catering

    5 starsJuly 13, 2014

    330 West 21st Street, Norfolk, VA 23517

    The staff was incredibly nice and the manager came over and asked if it was a dietary choice or if I had celiac and was very knowledgeable and kind. The pizza crust was fantastic! Best I've had so far in VA. Very flavorful. I'll be back soon. Update: when I went first they had an amazing gf crust. Pretty sure they're just using a restaurant-sized Udi's crust now. REALLY not worth the price. If they get the old crust back, I'd be more willing to pay the price for it. The broccoli/chicken pasta dish is very tasty, though, and I've ordered it on two occasions! The burger I had on a fourth visit was good, but pretty ordinary.

  • Get Fresh Cafe

    2 starsJuly 13, 2014

    2500 Church St., Norfolk, VA 23504

    Good quality of food (grassfed/fresh) but BEWARE. The bread is heated in a toaster that has normal bread in it, the cooktop is heavily contaminated, and there is no separate prep area. When I saw the bread go in the toaster and asked about it, the cook was completely unaware of cross contamination. If you are sensitive, make them very aware and just get a cold sandwich in a lettuce wrap. The ingredients are high quality, but if it touches any of the cooking areas, you're going to get sick. I had cold roast beef with lettuce, tomato, and a dressing I made certain was gf. Just be careful.

    This place is super yummy and very gluten-free friendly. Everything is very fresh. The drinks are a little overpriced for what they are, but if you get a specialty cocktail it's a little more worth it. The food, though, is fantastic. Especially the slaw!!

    Way overpriced for tiny amounts and the pizza I had really was not any different than a cheap frozen pizza I could heat up at home. Staff was friendly, but for a celiac it's too pricey for bad quality. I won't go back if I can avoid it.

    I get sick here occasionally from cross contamination and the staff doesn't take it very seriously despite trying to explain, but the food is very good. I recommend it, but be specific and firm with the staff.
