I react to yeast as well as gluten, so I cannot eat most gluten free breads. They made a salad of Romaine lettuce and chicken salad for me. It was delicious. My husband had roast beef and cheese with regular bread and he said it was one of the best he ever had. Expect to wait in line.

Read the good experiences that others had, so we went in for a sandwich for my celiac son. We explained that he had celiac and needed gluten free. We ordered a kid’s Turkey & cheese on GF bread. Nima sensor detected gluten, so we went back in with sensor. They said the kitchen was busy and remade the sandwich. The second sandwich also detected gluten. We will not be back.

They knew about celiacs and cross contamination. They put tin foil down when toasted the bread and take precautions. I didn’t get sick and the chicken salad sandwich was delicious.

I had a chicken salad sandwich on GF bread. They take extra precautions and I’ve never gotten sick here. One of my go-to places!

Returned January 2022 and had the Turkey sandwich. It was delicious as well. Most importantly I felt great afterwards once again!

This time I had a not-so-great experience. I decided to eat here before our flight home. No matter how many times I go to a restaurant I specify I am celiac and get very ill if I ingest gluten, even if by cc. This time I told them I was flying home soon and needed them to take precautions to please not cross contaminate. Got my sandwich, tested with Nima and it detected gluten. I took it back in and the manager made me a new sandwich herself, this time making sure it was prepared and toasted on tin foil. The second time no gluten was detected, however, it could have been a miserable flight home had I not tested first.

So many delicious sandwiches to choose from (most that can be made gluten-free)! My wife and I ordered the Belly Dancer and Chicken Pesto on gluten-free bread. We shared and would agree that both were ono!

The sandwich was great on good quality Gluten free sliced bread, but it was supposed to be on a hoagie, and they didn’t have gluten free hoagies.

My husband and I ate here 3 times and i never got sick. They knew what celiac was, which is always a bonus. I had toasted sandwiches each time. They wrap them in tin foil so your food doesn't come into contact with the grill.

They don't have a ton of options for sides, but was quite full off of the sandwiches. They also have vegetarian and vegan options.

The Porkie sandwich was amazing. All the sandwiches except the meatball sandwich can be made gluten free. They wrap everything in foil so there's a very small chance of cross contamination. When I asked about the pudding the cashier told me it's not safe because they put cookies in it but she did have one in the back that did not have pudding in it. I ate here twice and didn't get sick.

We came here 3 times during our stay. It is a perfect spot to get a to go sandwich to take to the beach. The first time I got a hot pastrami. Very good. The second two times I got a veggie sandwich (herb cream cheese, sprouts, avocado, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, Swiss cheese) and added turkey. Satisfying and delicious without feeling too heavy. Perfect for our picnics.

After reading the other reviews I had high hopes for this place. It's hard to find a deli place that is both gf and celiac safe. I ordered a gf sandwich and informed the employee I had celiac and to please make my sandwich separately. She gave me a blank stare and said "i guess we can do that". After waiting over 15minutes (where 2 other people after me had been served) I asked if she knew when it would be ready. I got a "it will be ready in 5". When I got my sandwich I noticed the bread was different (it was not Udis bread). She said it was gf bread. I took the sandwich home and realized it was not gf bread but plain white bread. I paid over $11 for this non-gf sandwich after specifically ordering it. Celiac's beware of this place!
