Great experience! I was asked what options were gluten free and they offered any of their sandwiches on gluten free bread. Also seemed knowledgeable about cross contamination and did mention that they can’t toast the GF bread since the toaster is shared.

Gluten free bread available for sandwiches... except if you’re celiac, be sure to ask that your bread not be toasted due to cross-contamination

This place was awesome. They have a bunch of gf baked goods (big jar of monster cookies too) and many gf menu options (including wraps and sandwiches). Never, ever had a problem here and I'm Celiac and have eaten pretty much all their options. The atmosphere is cool and there is artwork hanging all over the walls.

This little cafe was awesome. They had a wide variety of gluten free options. While not a dedicated gluten free facility I went out on a limb and tried an egg and ham sandwich. It was delicious and I wasn't sick.

Love this place! Come hear all the time and enjoy the food and never feel sick afterward. They use Udi's GF wraps and also have GF bread. Also have GF choc chip cookies that are amazing and GF carrot and zucchini breads as well. They obviously run their kitchen extremely well and I've never had any cross-contamination issues. Can't recommend enough!

Great little coffee and tea shop. They had gluten free chocolate chip cookies, a muffin choice, and two other gf muffin bread choices. We got the cookies and they were delicious and big!! Not sure how "safe" they were from cross contamination, but they were in a separate container. Nice eclectic little place!
