I’ll rank this as celiac friendly BUT you have to be smart about how you order. GF Pancakes are made on shared equipment. The sausage had maltodextrin and other gluten-questionable ingredients (where gluten is known to hide, like autolyzed yeast extract).

HOWEVER, they went out of their way to make me an omelette safely. They opened new containers and made sure things were clean. They made me an omelette to order and charged me $17 for it (which was a shock).

I’m giving it three stars for a SEVERELY limited menu and the high price. But I would say they could make it celiac friendly.

They have a gf menu but note on the menu that cc is present. My son wanted the gf pancakes and they are cooked on the same area as the regular pancakes. We left at that point not sure about the other items.

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!!

After waiting, being seated, asking for a GF menu, waiting again, the waitress said, no GF batter today for the pancakes or waffles. Seriously. A huge menu, a million posts, and no batter.

I ordered the GF pancake flight (bananas foster, goat cheese, and mixed berry). It came with 2 eggs and a breakfast meat all for $13. Would definitely get again! Check in on ‘no wait’ to decrease your wait time :)

Horrible experience. I ordered a "make your own omelet" with egg whites and veggies. Sides are always questionable, so my server offered silver dollar gluten free pancakes. My omelet was swimming in a quarter cup of grease and oil and brought to the table piled high with toast that I never ordered -after specifically discussing my dietary issues with the server. The pancakes were burnt and my side of tomatos came out, literally... on a rotting peice of lettuce. Even my boyfriends meal was bad and incorrect. The waitress was nice enough, but they clearly have bad service and a bad kitchen staff.

Gluten free pancakes would have been a good option, but they never made them. We waited and asked when they were coming, and the waiter said they were. Once we were about done, we asked again. He said, "Honestly, our kitchen is really slammed and they don't have time." That made my daughter feel like an inconvenience for her special needs of gluten free. The shrimp and grits were pretty good.

Needs an extra $ on their pricing category. Food was better than average, but not great. Wait from order to food on table seemed very long for number diners.

Warning, got violently sick! My girlfriend (who has Celiac) and I had just arrived for our first trip to Nashville for the weekend (morning of 7/8/16). Starving, we pulled up the Find Me GF app that we use religiously. This place had a great rating and sounded perfect. She stated that she had an allergy. First red flag...her omelette came out with my regular English muffins on her plate with her omelette. She told them that they would have to make a new one because it's a severe allergy, not a preference (politely...no big deal to wait, just get it right). They made a new one fairly quickly. But then about an hour after eating here (only food she had eaten) she got violently, violently sick. Not just a stomach ache. Throwing up for hours from both ends etc. We had also gotten what were supposed to be GF pancakes so not sure what made her sick. But basically we paid about $50 for her to be poisoned. On a positive note the waiter was great and friendly and the food tasted great. But that doesn't really matter if the kitchen isn't trained properly. So to summarize, don't eat here unless this sounds like a good time to you and you want to spend the better half of a day being really, really sick!

After reading the reviews, I was excited at the prospect of eating a particularly delicious pancake. Not that the ones I had weren't good, but they were nothing out of the ordinary. I can only guess the people who reviewed before me aren't used to being able to eat pancakes out. My scramble on the other hand, was by far the most tasty I can remember. I braved the possibility of contamination and tried the country potatoes. I don't recommend them. They appeared to be, and tasted like, bagged potatoes you can grab in the freezer section of your supermarket, then fried in old grease. My son really enjoyed his grits as they weren't doctored in any way. The house made sausage patties were tasty, though had a strange consistancy. I feel like they would go over better in a scramble, but that's just me. Our waitress, Madi, was new and very sweet and obliging. She went out of her way to ensure we got gf food. Overall, the experience was a good one. If we lived in Nashville it's safe to say we'd return now and again.

Server was horrible and brought my meal out with a regular English muffin on top of my eggs. I questioned her and she acted mad but took the plate back to make it right. Brought another egg dish out with just the fruit. Asked her what about the grits? She claims the grits are not GF. I question why are they listed on the GF menu then? She then said she needed to check with the chef and hastily walked away pushing through the kitchen door. Her attitude and lack of knowledge is why I wrote this review. This place is not safe especially for celiacs. I have eaten here in the past and they have always gone above and beyond to make sure the food is safe. She never did address the grits when she brought the check, once again confirming she did not care one bit. I will give my business to other local places that actually care about their customers.

It’s not often you find many places with a nice gluten-free selection for breakfast. Every time I go, it’s definitely for the pancakes. I’ve had the gluten friendly pancakes and the banana foster gluten free pancakes and love both. Definitely go with an appetite. I’ve never had a reaction any time I’ve eaten there. However their menu does state cross contamination can occur. Always a pleasant experience when I’ve been.

Ordered the lemon blueberry goat cheese pancakes with the house made sausage patties and scrambled eggs. Hated all of it, especially the pancake mix they used (walmart brand pancake mix is 1000% better - that'show bad). My husband ordered a power bowl and he hated his meal too. The photos looked good online but everything tasted terrible. The scrambled eggs were literally the egg patty you get at McDonald's, it didn't even have seasoning. Only gave 2 stars since GF isn't always easy to find. Maybe lunch would have been better?

Separate GF menu-staff somewhat aware. They knew that bread shouldn’t not be toasted because of cross contamination but then still brought out toasted GF bread. They did make a new plate of food -with untoasted GF bread. Also-waitress didn’t bring grits because she thought grits were not GF.

Happy with selections

My wife has Celiac. We requested a gluten-free menu when we went in. What they have is a gluten-friendly menu, on which is made clear that there is a risk of cross contamination. Basically, they can serve you a dish that has gluten free ingredients but none of the equipment is dedicated gluten free. She opted to risk it with shrimp and grits. It was an excellent, spicy dish. She had no symptoms following the brunch, so that was a good thing. I won't give them 5 stars bc I feel they could do more to alleviate cross contamination.

I got the gluten friendly pancake trio with 3 different flavors of pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs. The bacon was SO good, the eggs were good, and the pancakes were good. The bananas foster pancake was by far the best of the three flavors. I could eat the banana foster pancake and bacon every day for the rest of my life and be very happy. The coffee was good and comes in a fun shaped mug. I can't wait to go back and try several other menu items I was tempted by. Especially the shrimp and grits. I will update after I have had them. Most importantly I have celiac and I feel great after eating here.

I advised my server I had Celiac and needed gluten free. I asked about the waffles on the gf menu, they do NOT have a dedicated waffle iron. I ordered an omelette with NO bread. My order came out and it had an english muffin on top of it. The server removed the english muffin and handed me the plate! Had I not been watching like a hawk, I would have been glutened! I promptly refused my meal and sent it back and they made another one. I would not eat here again.

You can not have toast as they use the same toaster.

They do have a gluten friendly menu.

The pancakes are cooked in a separate place but I had to ask 4 people to get a straight answer.

We got the wrong pancakes (still GF) and the waitress made a point to take away the mistake pancakes like someone else was going to eat them.

I believe if I had a different waitress it would have been better. She made is clear that she had no interest in my questions. She was rude did not make me feel safe in ordering food.

My sister and I are both celiac and we were excited to see their extensive gluten free menu. My sister and I both ordered gluten free pancakes and someone in our party ordered regular pancakes. When the server came out our waiter had no idea which ones were regular and which ones were gluten free. He just guessed and handed them out. We had to do our own taste test on someone without celiac to figure out which ones were “safe” or not. We ended up not even eating what we ordered because we were too nervous that we would get sick. When we asked to speak to a manager they couldn’t be bothered. The service was terrible! So disappointing!
