    The only gluten in the store is bread that is brought in from another bakery. The omelette, potatoes, and toast was a large portion. The bell peppers used were the best I had ever tasted. And it was only $10.

    I'm addicted to Auntie Cathie's. This place is unbelievable. Fresh ingredients and overwhelmingly large portions. Amazing value for the price!!! I've never gotten anything that didn't taste incredible, and EVERYTHING on the menu can be made gluten free.

    Would have loved to five 5 stars but, as I write this I'm sick from cross-contamination so just can't. I was all set until my last bite of pancakes - an edge - it was a different flavor than I'd ordered and even though I immediately spit it out I am now really sick. Clearly two pancakes got too close on the griddle and the wheat one got on my GF one. So disappointed as I let my server know I'm Celiac and I thought they would take better care! This is my third time going and the first 2 times I didn't encounter any issues.

    Best GF breakfast around! She has a dedicated GF bakery and most of the kitchen is cooking GF food. I enjoyed one of the specialty omelettes while one son devoured a large breakfast sandwich on homemade GF bread and the other son enjoyed the blueberry pancakes. Definitely worth the trip! Hint: try to get there early as it is a popular place 😊

    This woman gets us 100%. By far favorite place to eat locally. A bit pricey. They're a small group so the days open and hours are limited. I think they are accepting credit cards finally.

    A little on the expensive side but in turn you get great gluten free food with good portions. Side note: They only take cash, no credit or debit cards.

    Incredible food, safe for celiacs. I have many food allergies, including gluten & dairy and I am always able to find something delicious to eat (not just a salad like at so many other places)! Cathie also made the cupcakes and cutting cake for my wedding. My guests ALL raved about the cupcakes. On top of that, she went out of her way to help make our day special and low-stress. She is wonderful, her food is without compare.

    This food is amazing. The whole menu is (or can be) completely gluten free. So nice going out to eat with friends and not having to get the 2 item gluten free menu. Staff was so friendly and kind I will definitely be spending all my money on their gluten free goodies! Safest spot to stop for a Celiac safe breakfast or lunch!

    Such a great restaurant! Celiac friendly--entire menu is gluten free (she does offer non-GF bread for sandwiches, but it is kept in a separate space & the staff always wears gloves to avoid cross contamination) Blueberry pancakes were amazing, earl grey cupcake was delicious too! Highly recommended!!!!
