I ordered an omelette and hash browns on 2 separate occasions. The first visit was great, but the second on must have had contamination. My insides have been hurting all day.

Had a fantastic breakfast here. The breakfast burrito bowl was really great. The GF waffles share the same waffle iron as the regular, so you’re relying on how well they wipe it clean. I did taste the sweet potato one, and it was really, really good. But, I didn’t order it for myself because of the contamination risk.

I was assured that my food would be safe and so far it does not seem I experienced cross contact. I was sad to find out that the batter for the gf waffles and hot cakes is made with dairy. There were also no dairy free options for butter or cheese. I got the Denver omelette without the dairy elements, paid extra for avocado, and it was delicious. My husband said the gf waffles were great!

Great DF & GF options. I love the Huevos Motulenos with plantains. Green chili is GF. Been here several times with no complaints. Great juice selection too. The chai with almond milk is very good.

Such an amazing breakfast!! The smoothies are fresh and so fabulous, the GF pancakes are made with sweet potato and corn and are so fluffy! The others I came with loved their non GF breakfast as well. Have options for GF toast, but they do specify on the menu that they "cannot guarantee GF" but I was fine.

Before I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and had to go GF I used to live eating here. I actually went here this morning with my husband after reading online that they had a GF menu. Once we got there, the menu says it can't guarantee GF meaning there's major cross contamination going on if they offer GF options. I ordered the sweet potato pancakes made the waitress aware of my gluten intolerance. Definitely not a gluten friendly restaurant, I've been sick all day.

Surprised by 3/14 rater's experience because they pride themselves on gf options here. Tried the blue corn and sweet potato batter, both good but best as waffles, not pancakes. Sweet potato was pretty good but not mind blowing. Still hoping someone somewhere makes a gf fluffy buttermilk type pancake. "Hello, IHOP?! Wake up!" Sausage links were outstanding. Bacon tasted like chemicals.

Awful, if you have an allergy do not go. Asked for gluten free options/menu for my Celiac's and was met with manager who didn't believe in it. Poor waitress was embarrassed as the manager tried to debate that it wasn't an actual allergy to anyone wrong who believed otherwise. Will not eat there or recommend otherwise. Was nervous the salad had gluten under his watch honestly and walked out.

Manager made me so angry debated eating something with gluten just to prove what would happen if ingested gluten and prove it all over the table.

If you have Ceiliacs you might understand what that would mean.

This is absolutely the best place for a GF breakfast in West Denver! The pancakes alone are worth the drive and they are more than happy to make substitutions on dishes that aren't labeled as gluten free. I take friends and professors from campus there all the time and will continue to enjoy their food in the future!

I really love this place and highly recommend for anyone who loves breakfast out. Exceptional skillets, juice bar, almond milk chai latte is divine! They have creative food that really hits the spot. Try the blue corn pine nut pancakes! It's usually busy so plan on a wait on weekends (15 to 30 min). If I could wish one thing it would be for GF eggs Benny!
