This was hands down the best gluten free biscuit I’ve ever had. I got the bacon egg and cheese biscuit sandwich and enjoyed every bite. I can’t wait to try the waffles next time. My non celiac boyfriend even gave it his stamp of approval. Service was quick and friendly. They are only doing take out (as of 8/29/21) at the moment but our order was ready in about 15min.

SO GOOD! Got one of the sandwiches and one of the waffles. Both were so yummy. They are only doing take out right now, but it was so worth it! The biscuit sandwich I had, was the softest/best gf biscuit I have ever had.

We enjoyed both the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit and the blueberry waffles. Both were excellent. The ingredients were high quality and the finish was perfect. The waffles had a delightful light crispy-crunchy texture that wowed even my glutenful husband. We sampled during the pandemic, so we carried out and rewarmed at home.

Fantastic place to get gluten free waffles and biscuits with a great breakfast menu. Now all they need to do is ad a little color to the decor to give it a warmer atmosphere when they can open back up again after the quarantine is over!

We ordered waffles and a biscuit with fresh squeezed orange juice. Due to covid they are take out only. They included napkins utensils in the bag too.. Food was delicious!! I would highly recommend this establishment.

Completely gluten free establishment. I had a bacon, egg and cheese on a biscuit and it was delicious. The biscuit was excellent!!! Would’ve had a waffle too, but didn’t think I could eat it while driving. The interior is closed for dining, and they will bring your food out to you, very COVID safe. Was just passing through Richmond, but if I lived there I’d eat here all the time!!

We ordered online about 1 hour before arrival and everything was hot and ready right on time. As a celiac it is a rare treat to indulge in biscuits and waffles let alone some of the most delicious food that would fool any non-celiac (like my partner)! Love this place! We will certainly be back!

Stopped by on our way home from Florida to Delaware. Ordered online about an hour away and set for timed delivery. Was hot and ready when we arrived for easy pick up. Daughter and I both have Celiac, don and husband have lesser intolerance. Biscuits were out of this world. Contemplated turning around to get more, but needed to get home. Kids had double trouble waffles, which they loved. Staff was friendly with our limited (Covid19) interaction. It is nice to find a safe spot to eat on our travels. Will swing by when we are this way again.

This was one of the best biscuits or my life—let alone gluten free. Fluffy, the right weight, and the perfect amount of crispness on the outside. All of the toppings were exceptional. My husband (a non-celiac biscuit snob) was also very impressed.

We went during coronavirus pandemic, and their ordering and pick-up process was very thoughtful, thorough, and clear.

THESE ARE REAL SOUTHERN BISCUITS. These are not sad little attempts at biscuits. These are the real deal, and they are wonderful. I ordered some of everything, including the Beaut, a sweet potato biscuit, and a chocolate-coconut waffle. It was all good.

The waffles are delicious. Light and fluffy. However, it took 45 minutes to get 2 waffles and 2 coffees to go, because there are only 5 tables and 4 bar seats. Then, we got back to our car and ate our waffles and when I lifted the take out box off of my lap, my dress was covered in flour. The bottom of the take out container had been set in flour before being put in our bag. Now I get to spend the rest of the day with a flour splotch on my dress.

Great food but the staff is unorganized and slow. I wanted so much for this place to be absolutely amazing to show that you can do all GF and do it well, but we got a pretty good waffle, a lot of annoyance, and a need to change before continuing my day.
