    Staff was knowledgeable and attentive to Gluten Free needs. Even brought a bottle of balsamic to the table to confirm it was celiac safe and a plastic wrapped set of flatware. GF bread was fine, but note they don’t have a separate toaster, so we asked for it untoasted. Also don’t have a separate fryer so no home fries either.

    Fantastic restaurant! Hubby had the filled with gluten fried green tomatoe kale and spinach Benny and he absolutely loved it. I had the shrimp and grits that were to die for. Would definitely return if ever in the Melbourne area again!

    The staff was awesome and understanding of Celiac's. The pancakes tatsed so good I thought they weren't GF, but they were. I got the penny stack with bacon and used sugar free syrup because I react to regular syrup. Don't eat at the make your own pancakes though. Made my vacation! Highly recommend.

    Awesome food! The wait staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and cross contanmination issues. The manager came over to make sure everything was okay at least 3 times. I'm so thankful for places like this that made my vacation so much better.

    They were very helpful in ordering. They made recommendations for substitutes due to my dietary restrictions. The penny stack was so good! And the bacon was perfect! If you’re Celiac, you must try the pancakes! Amazing!

    Amazing breakfast! Great service and knowledgeable staff. If you are celiac I wouldn’t make your own pancakes.

    Awesome little diner! Good gf options: pancakes and bread. I ordered the breakfast club - the egg was nice and runny, tomatoes were great and the bacon was nice and thick. Husband and son ordered gf pancakes-you only need to order the penny stack because it is plenty of food. Pancakes tasted awesome and couldn't tell they were gf. No one got sick afterwards. Friendly staff who hustle.

    I was so excited to try this place and it did not disappoint. We sat at a regular table, not the griddle table, and I had the gluten free pancakes. They were so delicious, better than I make at home. We will definitely be going back!

    Great menu selection! The gluten-free pancakes were very fluffy. They have dedicated griddles as well as markers to make sure everything is cooked GF. Definitely recommend!

    Great experience! I had the BLT on GF bread and it was so good, nice meaty bacon and fresh ingredients. Pretty sure the bread is sourced from Bald Strawberry. Can't wait to go back for breakfast!

    Good food, knowledgeable staff, amazing pancakes. They have griddles to cook your own pancakes and supply a separate dedicated cast iron skillet for gf cooking.
