I LOVE them. I can't speak highly enough of this place. I've been coming here for 7 years. Until a few years ago they didn't have gluten free injera so I'd just get a veggie combo over rice which was always deeelish. I never got sick ever. Now they have GF injera and I am going all the time again, yummmmmmm. I am not celiac but I am sensitive to cross contamination and very slight amounts of gluten and I have not had the slightest reaction ever. Also, the owners are the nicest people. Last time I went they held a parking spot out front for me so I could move my car out of a loading zone. Having eaten at all the Ethiopian restaurants in West Philly, this is by far the best vegetarian food and the only one I know whose injera is truly GF. (one other restaurant that shall not be named says their injera is GF but my stomach says otherwise). My regular order is: Veggie Combo with GF injera!

Not GF. Came here 7/6/13, asked if they had anything GF for breakfast. Dunno about the scones the other reviewer mentioned, but this is just a cafe, not a place that belongs in this app. We were trying for breakfast and it's the usual: bagels, toast, pancakes.

Celiac friendly?
