When we first entered through the doors we asked for a gluten free menu, at the top of the menu there is a warning to tell your waitress/waiter about any health conditions. We explained that I have celiac and the waitress said the only thing on the gluten-free menu is the Lobster and brie omelette( since they use “fake” lobster along with the use of real lobster.) When the food was brought out it was the manager who brought it to us and said that his father has celiac and made us felt safer that he knew what it was.
Meh, very unenthusiastic. They have gf pancakes and bread, but that's it. They guarantee nothing. Potatoes are fried in shared oil. I ordered the fruit cup instead and paid $4 for a small cup sour fruit- it wasn't ripe. I asked for bananas on my pancakes and literally received 5 slices. My stomach started to hurt so stopped eating.
My husband and I love eating here while in town. The GF pancakes with berries are delicious!! a lot of other great GF options too like the house made sausage. My husband is not GF and he loves it all as much as I do!
They do have a separate GF menu. Food was ok... Not horrible, but nothing to write home about. Service was awful. The first time they brought my plate out it had regular English muffins on it... Had to ask for them to remake my omelet. The steel cut oats we're good, but also brought out incorrectly. By the time my meal arrived my fiance was nearly finished with his. Didn't get sick... So I guess it's safe in the gluten free department... But was painful getting the food to the table.
YUM!! Wish we had seen on this app & eaten here sooner on our trip so we could make it back. They have a pretty big GF menu with plenty of breakfast (GF pancakes, omelets) and lunch type (sandwiches) foods. The GF pancakes are light & fluffy and everything this girl dreams of. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
The staff was awful. My daughter’s plate came out with real toast on it. Also, I feel the gluten free pancakes weren’t gluten free as she was vomiting in the parking lot as soon as we left
Located in the heart of Fairhope. Breakfast is pricey, $15, but worth it because is so difficult to find a restaurant that offers both a gluten and dairy free menu. Yes, the gf, df pancake isn’t great and takes the entire syrup bottle that is given with the meal to get it down :). I called my order in and they got it right.
This cafe is great! The wait is reasonable, with lots of benches outside to wait on (and coffee while you wait). They have a gluten free menu-- the kitchen is not entirely gluten free, so very serious celiacs might have problems. But they had delicious pancakes, and overall a great, welcoming staff and environment!
Had the breakfast. I ordered the pancakes with berries. It came with eggs and sausage made on site. Everything was delicious! Honestly the best breakfast sausage I’ve ever had. Pancakes were delicious too!
The food is delicious! They do have a Gluten Friendly menu. With that said, you still have to ask about sauces and the way it is being prepared. Depending on your server, they will go out of the way to make sure you are safe. We ate here twice. The first time was busy, and the waitress seemed bothered by my questions and was not willing to ask the kitchen to prepare my meal safely. Hulk Hogan comes here...so, you may just get a chance to see him. The coffee is worth coming for...even if you do not eat anything.
Gluten friendly menu. Server was knowledgeable and explained how their could be cross contamination issues in their kitchen. All staff was friendly and seemed to work well together. I had shrimp and grits and it was delicious.
I ordered GF pancakes and they brought me regular ones. They did remake the order but I ate after everyone else in my party as a result. Not a good dining experience and the pancakes weren’t good enough to give it a second shot. Also they are only “gluten friendly” so not for celiacs.
Great place to go! Food was amazing. I personally did not trust the pancakes as the menu clearly stated gluten friendly. And major cross contamination is possible. I stuck with an omelette cause I figured it was prepared in a slightly more safe area. I asked for no bread at all because they have gluten friendly not gluten free. I am very sensitive and did not get sick!! Would recommend if they’re not slammed. 3 stars strictly because we waited an hour and 20 mins to even be sat. And another hour waiting on food. It was insane. Food was delicious but not worth almost 3 hours of being at a restaurant. The only reason we let happy was because of Paris!! Our server was incredible!!! She made up for us having such a bad experience in the beginning. From the moment we sat down with her we all had smiles on our face and had a great breakfast.
Wonderfully pleasant staff and great food!!
My gf meal came out non-gf luckily I noticed it didn’t seem right. They brought my eggs out and they tasted like fish (I also have a shellfish allergy) so at this point I ask for a manager. Manager argues with me that the eggs couldn’t taste like fish (others in my party had tried them and agreed) and didn’t at all try to rectify the situation. Basically they didn’t take any allergy seriously, disappointing as I’ve been to other locations that were great
I love this place! Great pancakes! My waiter did tell me that they usually make the gluten-free pancakes on the same service as the regular pancakes, however. Since I am very sensitive to gluten cross-contamination, I asked that my pancakes be made on a separate pan from the regular pancakes. With that special request in place, I did not have any problems and felt fine after eating here on two occasions. The wait staff and manager were also very nice and helpful.
This place is not safe for Celiac !! The menu states several times cross contamination. We were greeted by dirty table when we sat down, we moved again still dirty. We waited over an hour for our food. The timing with the kitchen was very off since there were only 10 active tables going. The sever was friendly and a good listener with our allergies.They try to appear with healthier options but they don’t really all meats had nitrates as well. They need to revaluate serving the GF community. I was not offered to make the food Seperately.
Went here a few years ago with my stepmother and an hour or two later I was throwing up for the rest of the morning. We told them that I have Celiac Disease and needed to be completely gluten free and they said ok. I got the gluten free pancakes. Obviously they didn’t care or they thought Celiac isn’t a real thing or they thought I was just on a diet or I don’t know but I almost had to go to the hospital as I was throwing up for hours. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE.
Our server was very knowledgeable about gluten allergies, and he let me know I wasn’t glued to the separate GF menu because they are a scratch kitchen. I got the blueberry, goat cheese, and lemon pancakes with a side of baked bacon and eggs (and grits because I had to try them) and it was SO GOOD. My mouth is watering thinking about it a day later. I didn’t get sick (and I’m super sensitive) and the place is really cool and close to lots of cool things. We went straight from the airport here and it did not disappoint. I am always so nervous trying a new place in a new city especially, and this place is so worth it. Also, if they “run out of batter” as mentioned in over reviews, it’s okay because they have plenty of other great choices that are safe!!
I love this place. Not the best GF breakfast in Dallas, but they have the best Gf pancakes!! So good. They have a gf menu (without prices listed, which is a tad annoying), and everything I’ve had has been really good. The bacon is unreal.
Food was very good. Had GF pancakes with goat cheese amazing but you need to know some things on GF menu are not GF. For example we made the hostess double check the grits which were on the menu they said they were not GF. Also the sausage made them check not GF so as always have a conversation with them. They were really nice and did check.
