  • Miss Shirley's Cafe

    Number one I loved the customer service of Miss Shirley's-- they bring a manager to talk to you if you mention you have allergies and when I called first before coming they were very accommodating and reassuring that I would have many options to eat. I got the GF pancakes which are also DAIRY FREE. So excited about that. Delicious, I got them with blueberries. They also have Gf bread for sandwiches they said. Love that I can go out to eat with my non-gfdf friends and still eat happily and safely. It is a little expensive but it's worth it for a treat.

    There aren't many options for gluten free dairy free- but the fact that they print out a list of the items that I can eat bets any other main stream restaurant for ease of ordering and feeling safe about what I'm eating. Plus their GF better lemon chicken is SO GOOD. It's satisfying like the takeout I used to get as a treat back in my gluten-eating days. Egg drop soup was good, too. Auntie changs frappe was really good to- just got w/o whipped cream. Also good customer service.

    Their pizza is so far the best gluten free dairy free I have tried and they use Daiya, which I love. Not that awful soy stuff. Crispy crust, great flavor. Also got a gfdf pumpkin pie-- loved the crust but the inside was only ok, a little dry. Which surprised me since making a dairy free filling is not that difficult. I have come back a lot for the pizza though since it is only about 11-13 dollars, it's delicious (try the white pizza or shrimp). And they have so many dairy free cupcakes! German chocolate was really good, chocolate rapsberry ganache was good but a little dry. Their customer service is sometimes a little lacking.

    Stopped by here on a layover-- can't believe I could find quality food like this at an airport! I think this was in C terminal. Got the diver scallops. I told them I was also dairy free and they came up with an alternative sauce and were very professional and accommodating about it. Scallops were delicious-- salty and fresh and perfectly cooked (medium). Plantain hash was delicious. Only 4 stars because I wish there were more items that could be dairy free and gluten free-- but then again this location has a smaller selection because its in an airport.

    They have a small gf menu. Ordered the penne bolognese dairy free and the gf baguette (no pesto to dip the bread in since it has cheese but I did have olive oil). Penne tasted fresh and sauce was very good. Also had the mixed berry sorbet-- it was okay. Wish there were more gf and dairy free options but since the pasta was delicious I would come back. If you're not dairy free, they have gf pizza which sounded good.

    This place was amazing. Family owned and the dad, George, was super friendly and talkative in a really nice and comforting way. Very accommodating of special requests. Got gluten free pizza with daiya cheese, and a soy latte with a gfdf cupcake for dessert. Really good-- slightly expensive but worth it for great customer service and great food. Crust had great flavor, loved the sauce and they knew how to cook the daiya cheese just right. The owners son, daughter and wife all have celiac or gluten intolerance and he was very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Good selection of toppings too. Definitely have to try this place!!

    I ordered takeout and even though they were busy they took the time to find someone to call me back to go over the gluten free and dairy free options. Great customer service made even better by the delicious food- dairy free saag aloo, gluten free dairy free naan and chicken pakora. Naan was amazing, and saag. Pakora didn't quite taste fresh but would've been good fresh out of the fryer. I used to go to lotus pre going gluten/dairy free and am glad their new options didn't disappoint.

    This place gets points for having both dairy free and gluten free pizza. But having tried many other superior gfdf pizzas since then, this place doesn't really live up to its competitors. Crust was soft, almost soggy and the soy cheeze they use lacks flavor. It could do in a pinch, though, and the service was friendly.

    I was disappointed. Only 4 options for dairy free baked items. I had a banana berry muffin, which was good but not great. Focaccia was really good, had that soft chewy texture that i miss from regular bread but was $8 so it would only be a treat every once and a while. Wish they had more selection.

    I've been going to Avatars for years, but hadnt been since going gluten free dairy free. In short, this place is amazing! Food was excellent. Had gfdf samosas and crab enchiladas. The flavor was delicious. Samosas weren't quite as good as the regular ones, but were better with extra tamarind on top. I want to go back tomorrow for the crab enchiladas!!! their customer service is just the best, and they seem genuinely excited to create allergy-free dishes, and are knowledgeable about what ingredients can/can't be used, at least to me.

    Great that there are gluten free dairy free pizza options. About 20 a 14inch pizza. However, they needed to bake the crust before adding toppings a little more, it wasn't crusty enough. And they should use cheddar daiya- it has a better taste. Overall though I recommend it.
