Celiac

I have celiac & was thrilled to see so many GF options! BUT, the third time I went in for breakfast, having requested no toast on my plate, it arrived with toast touching the omelet. I politely reminded the waitress that I'd requested no toast at all since I prefer not to take the chance as a celiac. She seemed annoyed and took the plate away to the kitchen, returning less than 2 minutes later with the same plate less the toast on it, but with an obvious wipe mark. My friend politely explained that the seriousness of celiac disease and cross contamination issues and requested that the dish be remade. 15 minutes later my plate reappeared, minus the toast. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing whether they actually remade it or simply placed it under a heat lamp on a clean plate. I was ill for a week after eating that breakfast. I probably wouldn't risk it again.
