    I asked about gf options and the guy acted like I was inconveniencing him. No one else was in line. I left. Not going back.

    These people are great about allergies. The food/drinks are flavorful and filling. Chilli with corn chips is a great option. Brewhemia was voted the best coffee shop in Cedar Rapids again this year.

    Found this cafe/coffe house/bar in FMGF. They have some of the best coffe I've had. Idon't really have it without sugar but it was great by itself. They hand pull their shots for smooth natural sweetness, not bitter. With my latte I had their GF quiche which was delicious. (They sell out, so for the best selection arive early.) We also ordered a breakfast bowl that was very good. Their GF bread made some good toast too. We returned for lunch and tried their Parmesan crusted grilled cheese (filled with tomato, goat & white cheddar). I love a crispy, gooey grilled cheese and this wasn't what I was expecting. The bread was warm but not toasted. There wasn't enough cheddar to make it gooey cheesy. The crisp came from the sheet of crisped Parmesan folded around the sandwich. It needed a toasty bread and lots more cheddar IMO. Not horrible but I wouldn't get it again -I'd have the traditional grilled cheese instead. The salad was freash and good.

    Went during lunch. Busy. Took our orders at register, said the it pulled pork sliders were GF would change have gf bun and substitute sauce on the side. My sons order ( non-gf) & mine came out identical! The massage didn't get to the cook or maybe he had been in their microbrews? They did re-make it but came out on crumbly toasted bread (good flavor). Must need to be more emphatic to eat her safely. Had we not ordered the same item I wouldn't have questioned the product because of the 100% GF friendly status.

    Our family of 6 + grandma loved everything we ordered! Our 9 year old said the GF bread was the best she ever had and she was excited that the bread didn't fall apart while eating a grilled cheese. The desserts were amazing!

    Was visiting my boyfriend at Cornell College this past weekend and knew I wanted to stop here after reading the reviews and I am so glad we did! Knowledgable about celiac and cross contamination. I let the girl who took my order know that I had celiac and she brought me over a complementary GF brownie that was to die for. She told me they were extra cautious when making the brownies (different pan, different area). I ordered the Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese on Gluten Free Bread, very very good! One of the best GF dining experiences I've had since I was diagnosed in February 2014.

    Love the look and feel of this place! We went for breakfast and they had REAL pumpkin spice lattes as well as a good breakfast selection. They had three gluten-free breakfast pastries (breakfast bar, brownie, cluster) and the quiche is gluten-free as well. I ended up eating the egg sandwich with the gluten-free bread and goat cheese. It was simple but I appreciate them having items I can feel safe eating!

    We stopped on our way through Cedar Rapids and had coffee, breakfast cookies and brownies. My 16 year old son makes great GF brownies and even he admitted these were excellent! Very clean cafe and friendly staff.
