Would give zero stars if I could. NOT gluten friendly by any stretch of the imagination. Our waitress was down right hostile. I made her aware of my gluten issues, and she responded that the owner has celiac and EVERYTHING is cross contaminated. When I told her I had found the restaurant on this site, it went over her head. I asked what the GF options were, and she responded with "well, what are you thinking?" I listed the menu items that I thought might be safe, and her only response was "No". Apparently, according to her they even roll their falafel in bread crumbs before frying it. The other people with me ordered while I scoured the menu for something to eat. When she came back, I asked about the salads. I don't like oil and vinegar, and asked if the ranch was GF. She said "it's a powdered mix, so probably not." I asked about the Greek chicken on special, apparently that is rolled in bread crumbs too. I finally asked if there was anything that was actually GF. She got REALLY snotty then and said "Let's go over the ENTIRE menu for you then" She waved around at the breakfast stuff (which according to the menu isn't served past 10 am) and basically said I could have lettuce, olives, tomatoes, vinegar dressing and cottage cheese. My husband finally lost it and told her we would pay for his side salad but we were leaving. When we stood up, the waitress said the kitchen had already started our meals. We told her to cancel them and she said "fine" and stormed off. We waited for a few minutes for the check for the side salad, but didn't see her again so we left. She then chased us OUT THE DOOR with the check, demanding that we pay it. My husband argued with her and she threatened to get the owner. My husband said he would LOVE to talk to the owner and she went back inside. We waited another 10 minutes, no owner. We left. Their listing on this site says they have bread etc. to substitute. NOT TRUE.

They have gluten free burgers WITH a bun, and sandwiches. Staff seemed knowledgeable. Separate fryer for fries. Cookies for desert. I buy a lot of Udi's for home use, nice to be able to go out too though.

Have been here a few times..will admit it was for the cupcakes and that is all I have tried. They were fantastic, and I am in love with the strawberry cream. Nice to have an option for a birthday cake as well. I want to try some of their other items, but they are on the pricey side. Paid around $7 for 2 cupcakes. (they really were good though!) They have a punch card for frequent shoppers.

They understand cross contamination issues, and have a decent gluten free pizza (not near as good as their original pizza though) The other dishes on the GF menus are pretty good as well. I have family that comes in to town and always want to eat here, glad I have an option now to eat with them.

The one and only time we ate here I had a really bad gluten reaction. The manager assured me they would make everything safe. The grill baste is not gluten free, and you have to ask for them not to use it. I don't know if it was cross contamination or lack of knowledge. I can only assume they boil any side of veggies in the pasta water. I was really really sick after eating here. Won't go back.
