    I am in love with this place. I have celiac and am a vegetarian (but I avoid dairy and eggs when I don't know exactly where they're from). This was the first place since I was 8 that I could eat every single thing on the menu. The onion rings are my favorite, even though I'm generally not a fan of fried foods. The eggplant pizzas are delicious, and the quiche is very similar to a traditional quiche. I've enjoyed everything that I've ordered. I can't recent this restaurant enough!

    service was extremely slow and intermittent, they looked to be very understaffed. We got french fries, onion rings and a grilled cheese sandwich. Fries were good but nothing special, onion rings batter had a good flavor but onions were cut way too thick and they were extremely greasy, grilled cheese was good but it is vegan cheese- I thought it was good, the husband was not a fan.

    The entire menu is gluten free. It is also completely vegan. I have eaten here many times (I am vegan and my son has celiac disease). I have taken numerous people who are neither vegan nor necessarily trying to avoid gluten. Everyone has loved it, and those who are local continue to patronize Adama, often telling their friends about it. Excellent tahini kale salad with shaved beets, lentils, and apple. Yummy quiche. Creamy broccoli soup (soup changes daily). Great sweet potato fries. My son loves the Chipotle Panini which has Beyond Meat brand "chicken", chipotle aioli, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, and Daiya brand cheese. They make their own bread. I have tried many things on the menu and loved it all. That makes it hard to decide what to order at times! :) There is also a bakery case with many wonderful choices and several flavors of gelato all made there. I recently had the toasted almond gelato and my eyes rolled back into my head at the first taste. So good!

    WOW! This place has amazing baked goods that are all gluten free! The staff is lovely. I arrived right as they were closing but they stayed open just long enough to let me purchase the baked goodies since I was so excited. The hostess said "we are so happy to provide gluten free products! We love seeing such excited customers!" Chewy texture, interesting sophisticated flavors, all around a great bakery experience.

    We like this place for the GF options, clear labeling, and friendly service. The food is yummy and good for you. Come when you are not in a hurry, though. They take forever.
