Review


The menu said all of their eggs Benedict were “served over sourdough English muffin, topped with gluten-free hollandaise sauce.” The Mushroom N’ Pesto one is marked gluten-free. I asked about that English muffin, waitress said if it must be gluten-free, they sub with gluten-free toast. I said I’d go with that. (Should have been a red flag that it was ambiguously marked on the menu). Within an hour I had a migraine, and then I got the usual indigestion issues. I seem to tolerate some cross-contamination, and I still got sick. Our food came out at completely different times too, so some of us were watching our food get cold for a considerable amount of time while waiting for the rest.

Had to come back to edit my review. After eating here 3 days in a row because I thought it was safe, I realized I was getting glutened and was really sick on the third day. Once I stopped eating here, I was no longer sick. Pretty bummed since their food was great and they said they took extra precautions to prevent cross-contamination.

Found this place on the app and it did not disappoint. Started with a strawberry mimosa and my husband and I shared a blood Mary. Best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had. My husband had the shrimp and grits which were amazing. I had the American (3 eggs, bacon, potatoes and gluten free bread with a blackberry jam that was out of this world). Cannot wait to return and try their French toast and Brussels and potatoes.

i had a really nice breakfast here!! although i was a little dubious at first about cross contamination as some of the menu isn’t gf, our waitress did reassure me that the gf french toast was cooked separately, so i ordered that and it was very yummy!!! of course as i do not have symptoms i don’t know the true safety of the place, but if you talk to the staff they are very understanding and do say they cook gf things separately :) the staff are very nice and the atmosphere of the cafe is great :)
