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 :)

Very helpful server. Took us seriously, and let us know the GF items were prepped separately. When meal came he let us know he subbed the potatoes for fruit because he was concerned they were cross contaminated. My Celiac daughter, who has seen her share of fruit plates declared it the best she had ever had, and she enjoyed her breakfast sandwich as well.

Ate here twice on my trip. Food was very good and their orange juice was the best I’ve ever had tasted sweet and freshly squeezed. Had the egg Benedict’s with GF toast and it was delicious! Also I asked if their ketchup sauce is Gf (has a lot of ingredients) and it is!

Super friendly staff. Food was very good.. some items for gluten free like french toast,, but not pancakes.. Queue management not as efieicent, eg notice that they did not clean tables right away eg 5min turned into 20 mins for a family that preferred inside table that was available, but good online tool. May just be short staff. Just be prepared to wait up to an hour.

Great food, many options that were either already gluten free or easily changed to be gluten free. Had the crab cake benedict, very delicious on gluten free bread instead of an English muffin! My wife ordered the scramble and the upgraded potatoes, a lot of food and she didn’t get sick despite the server saying there was a cross-contamination chance on the potatoes. The side of gluten free toast was a bit under toasted. The coffee and strawberry lemonade I’ve ever had! Server was very understanding and accommodating, however they do get very busy, we had to wait an hour and a half to get seated.

I love this place. Delicious food. I’ve had the cinnamon raisin French toast twice and it is fantastic not something you can get often when you can’t have gluten. Today I will be having a eggs Benedict. All their hollandaise sauces GF. Great service and lattes as well.

Waiter knew the specifics of the food and its preparation. While they do have gluten free toast, they do not have a gluten free toaster. He did offer to Toast it in a pan, but I chose not to risk it.

Fantastic place, but be ready for a wait is it is very popular. Lots of gluten free options. I had the mashed potato omelet (bacon and cheese with fried potatoes) which was fantastic. No reaction and a fun experience. I would recommend avoiding any toast as the toasters are not gluten free.

The cinnamon bread French toast was very good and I liked the fact they offered 100% maple syrup. The menu was clearly labeled which was a nice perk and I felt like they had a reasonable enough of choices to choose from.

The GF French cinnamon raisin toast was the best we have ever had! It was fluffy and tasty! Not a normal GF bread taste in a good way. Highly recommend the omelets as well.

Waiter seemed to understand when I told him I COULD not have gluten as it made me sick and it was not an option for me. I asked them to take certain precautions for me, but still got glutened. Feeling super sick. Not celiac safe.

So they have “gluten-free” options, but not really. Their options include benedicts, so of course I asked what the English muffins were made of. Turns out they’re “gluten-free” in the way people think any-old sourdough is safe for people with Celiac. Be careful what you order, and don’t take their menu at face value.

I had the amazing French toast. I couldn’t believe it was gluten free because of the size, texture and flavor of the bread. Our server assured me it was GF as he also eats gluten free. It was the most amazing French toast I’ve had in more than a decade. Hubs, non GF, had the shrimp and grits which he said was phenomenal. Kiddo ate the regular pancakes and said those were great too! Free 2 hour parking. Busy little joint but friendly folks and great food.
