Just trying to reduce gluten in my life

    For a small place, I was surprised at how gluten-free friendly they are. Apparently I came in on a day when they had just gotten GF wraps to add to their GF line, so that was nice. All of their soups are gluten-free (the chicken rotini stops being gluten-free when they add the noodles, but they add those when they serve it, so I had "chicken soup.") Many baked goods to choose from, and the owner said he was working on a dedicated GF crepe batter recipe that should be ready "soon." Not a lot of seating, though. Small place, so there were some cross-contamination questions, but they readily used clean cutting boards and knives. Only open for breakfast and lunch.

    I wasn't all that impressed with their GF options. Obviously we're not the main target audience for a bread bakery.
