  • Our Crepes & More

    Delicious GF Crepes filled with fresh good quality ingredients (I had goat cheese, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, olives & turkey with the balsamic glaze). I have celiac so as usual asked how things are handled in the kitchen and the owner assured me that while they do use the same hot plate it is cleaned to a local MD's standards who recommends his GF patients to dine here. If they used a separate GF designated hot plate it would have been 5 stars.

    Pretty disappointed in this place especially since we had to walk about ten min in the hot sun just to get to it from the water taxi. While yes they do have a GF menu it turns out the "new chef" is pretty clueless about GF dining according to our server who was nice enough to check on a few items for me. He advised us against some of the items actually listed on the GF menu so just ended up getting a Cobb salad & doing evoo, balsamic vinegar & fresh lemon as the dressing. In all honesty I wouldn't have even stayed if the server hadn't been so willing to work with me on getting it just right.

    On vacation in Miami and was super nervous about eating out (extremely gluten sensitive which makes traveling stressful) so I called ahead as I always do to double check & was informed that the manager would greet us when we arrived and explain all of my GF options. He did just that and to my delight on top of the impeccable service & wonderful atmosphere, I was able to eat almost everything on the menu with the exception of a few items. I was thrilled to have so many options and especially enjoyed the "cheese bread" made of all GF ingredients yet delicious as can be. You know, so good it feels scary to eat it!! The staff were all very knowledgable & even made some of the otherwise gluten containing meats gluten free just for me so I could try them :) I can honestly say that the only downside was feeling full WAY to soon!! The price is high but worth every penny for the food & the ability to truly relax and enjoy a nice meal out again!!!
