I love Barry’s! Awesome breakfast! They are careful about cooking gluten free stuff in a separate area/clean area to avoid cross contamination. I’ve had the French toast, but usually end up getting the pancakes with chocolate chips and scrambled eggs with cheese. They put gluten free on red plates to insure not getting it mixed up with the regular stuff. Never gotten sick :)
Great food, many GF options. Owner’s wife and daughter both have celiac so the kitchen and restaurant clearly understand it. GF items delivered on a different colored plate as outlined in other reviews. Our server was new but great with checking with the kitchen to make sure there was no question on whether options were truly GF and safe for celiac. We went out of our way to eat here and glad we did. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Will go back.
My family and I were super impressed with this place for breakfast this morning. The waitress handled our 8 year old Celiac’s order with ease and was very knowledgeable. When asked if the chocolate chips were GF, she said she wasn’t positive but offered to check on them for us immediately. My son’s GF chocolate chip pancakes were delicious! He also got a side of bacon. My husband talked to the female owner after our meal and she was so kind, and told us how her daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease. The place has a kind of quaint diner sort of feel, and the fact that they are so supportive of firefighters and the first responder community via philanthropic efforts makes it all the more charming. We will definitely be back!
Very good choice for GF preference. They have a separate menu listing gluten free, lactose free and nut free items. They are knowledgeable and very flexible to adjust items. Their website states that their daughter is a celiac. My kids loved that they could order pancakes and French toast at a restaurant, a real treat for them. We will return!
My server was extremely knowledgeable and when I asked for a gluten free menu she asked ME if I had celiac disease. I'm newly diagnosed and she advised me to always let them know specifically that I have celiac disease so they could be extra careful about avoiding cross contamination. She steered me toward the best gluten free options and suggested I get the pancakes instead of the french toast because they were out of their usual gluten free bread that day (Udis) and had a brand that wasn't quite as good. Another runner brought out my pancakes which were good but small (get sides with your pancakes or the full breakfast combo as they're not enough on their own) and when my server saw them she brought me a brand new order of pancakes. She had asked the kitchen to remake them because they weren't as fluffy as usual! The new ones were even better and my server earned a very good tip. She clearly cared and wanted me to have a good gluten free eating experience. Five stars well earned.
My boyfriends mother ate here and spoke with the owner who said their daughter was a Celiac. So they are aware of how to handle allergies due to this. Went the other day and ordered the pancakes which are very good. You have to ask for the allergen menu, but they have it listed in categories for those with other allergies as well which is very helpful. (pdf on their website too for those like me who prefer to check that ahead of time ) lots to choose from. I felt fine later that day, I'll be going back.
