All they have for GF is pancakes. And it’s $12 for two pancakes. Very disappointed.
The service was less than ideal. They have gluten free options, but the staff did not seem like they understand allergies.
They are a chain but this one has NO gf biscuits!! Advised not to order gf pancake because criss contam was probable! The waitress was super friendly, gave us lots of tips on Historic District. An hour wait at 11:30. BUSY!!
Gf pancakes are delicious! Not sure they are made on a dedicated area in kitchen and server gave me English muffin along with my meal even though I ordered a side of GF pancake so...not sure he knew what he was doing. My omelette was good but definitely had dairy in it based on how I felt afterwards. But I didn't ask about it so not faulting them.
No longer at 90 s market place
I've been to ABE several times and love to get their omelettes! I've never had a reaction and I have Celiac. Great food with lots of options 😊
The pancakes were good and if you ask the manager they will tell the kitchen the clean off the griddle before they cook your food. I had no reaction.
Terrible on many accounts. They still offer gf pancakes, but cooked on their regular griddle. Two of our dishes had to be sent back because they brought toast and potatoes on the plate. The waitress tried to take the toast off the plate in front of us. Very long wait for the food.
I got sick at the hominy last time I was in Charleston, so going here I just asked what was cooking in its own pans. I got the city grits (amazing!!) , gf toast and scrambled eggs. The waitress was helpful, and I didn't get sick.
Not much for celiacs everything has up charge
Potatoes are fried In shared fryer- NOT GF. Even tho our waiter tried to argue with me on it- glad I saw this and questioned him. Disappointed in wait staff. Gf bread but No more gluten free pancakes because they didn't sell enough. Omelets are the safest he says because they're in the omelet pan and that's it.
staff tries but 3 out of 4 times I had a reaction.
Great gluten free pancakes! I asked the waitress to ensure the kitchen used a clean pan and it was no problem at all. Very accommodating. Pretty much only 1 or 2 choices on the menu.
Best GF pancakes we've ever had!
The hostess and wait staff were extremely knowledgeable about gluten free options. I got an omelet which was delicious and could not have the sides that came with it so they made two small gluten free pancakes (also delicious) and a side of fruit! Wonderful, will definitely be back.
The GF pancake and bacon were delicious. The servers were friendly, well informed about celiac, and careful to avoid cross contamination. My fellow (non-GF) diners were all pleased, too. This location is relatively new (opened in Sept. 2013), and business is really starting to pick up. If you have to wait, it'll be worth it!
Absolutely amazing omlettes, and the gluten-free pancakes are some of the best I've had. The staff will work with your allergy and will even sub mini pancakes and fresh fruit for the typical muffin/fried potatoes.
Food was good, but slightly overpriced IMO. A small glass of OJ cost more than the bacon.. And the GF options were few. However, the pancake that is GF is good; not grainy like some gf flour blends produce.
very accomodating staff understand GF needs. omlettes grits GF and GF pancakes nice atmosphere will go back
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!!
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.
Wonderful gf, df breakfast. I had an omelet, potatoes, and toast. Their gf bread is brown from Simple Kneads. The waiter was knowledgeable and my bread was toasted in the oven. He was friendly and was aware of food allergies and cross contamination. I highly recommend this restaurant!
I had the gluten-friendly bananas foster pancake breakfast, because when am I ever going to get something like that again? It was like having dessert in the morning! I gave only 3 stars because I feel the prices are really high. Over $40 for two breakfasts and coffee seems unreasonable for what we got. My husband did not enjoy his gluten-full regular pancakes and my gluten-friendly ones were good, but I feel like they wouldn’t have been as tasty without the Carmel-y sauce and whipped cream covering them. The one bite without the toppings was meh... They charge an up charge for GF and if you don’t eat pork (bacon or sausage) your choices are grits or an up-charged side of fruit... a small side of fruit. I would not say they’re celiac friendly because if the chances of cross contamination.
Several gf options, pancakes and omelette and more. They say "gluten friendly" but they are gf ingredients and staff are excellent about using clean equipment to cook when they know it's an allergy. (This is a chain, and every location so far I've been to is similarly good)
There was a 45 minute wait and a line out the door and great reviews so we had to try it! They have a separate GF menu. I had the banana foster GF pancakes. I was a bit scared to eat them but after the first bite I was in GF heaven!! 🙌🏼 Best pancakes I’ve ever had!!
I just had their gluten free pancakes and thought they tasted like the real thing. Seriously the best gluten free pancakes I've ever had and now in my top 5 pancake list (includes pancakes I had before having to go gluten free). I don't know if I'll be able to order anything other than this next time I go. No bad reactions and I didn't have to say anything to the waitress about my allergy. I would still mention it just to be safe. Enjoy!
The food here is so good and I didn't get sick after eating here! I ordered the Hey Lucy omelette with dollar size gluten free pancakes and I ate every single bite! The coffee was also really good! Will definitely be coming back here soon!
Great menu options, and they have pancakes! So much to choose from!
I only have great things to say about this place. The gluten friendly pancakes are easily the best pancakes I’ve ever had. And the omelet my wife had is all she can talk about now! Definitely give this place a try!! Great food! Great staff! And very nice atmosphere!
They do not use separate area for cleaning. However, they were extremely accommodating, and said they would do their best to keep the area gluten free. I did not get sick and I had the lemon, blueberry, goat cheese gluten free pancakes. They were amazing! They came with a side of bacon and eggs. I would definitely eat here again! They had a big selection of “gluten-friendly” options.
