After asking the waitress a ton a questions, I ended up asking her to find out from the manager what the safest food they have for a celiac. The answer was toast. “Everything is on shared equipment.” They wash everything as best they can but that’s far from ideal. I was disappointed that this restaurant is listed on this app. I ended up getting dry toast with very cold lettuce and tomato and bacon. It was a cold and dry BLT.

I will say though, that I appreciated their honesty!

We are in from out of state. Ate breakfast this am and yesterday. I asked about the protocol in the kitchen. They use a separate grill for the gluten free pancakes, that were delicious. I did not try the gf waffles. There is a dedicated waffle iron for the gf waffles. They offer gf French toast.

Very yummy GF pancakes--although they were a bit on the overdone site; the server said they sometimes need to cook them longer to ensure the centers are done. The server also said they have GF toast but I didn't try it. I don't remember seeing GF waffles on the menu. I had an omelet and breakfast potatoes with pancakes on the side. I'm sure I could have also had a skillet or even just eggs and bacon or sausage with no problems. Everything was delicious--wish I lived in the area so I could go back more often!

This place is one of my favorite little breakfast joints and I was super concerned that I would never again get to have one of their Mediterranean omelets after I was diagnosed. Instead they were the first restaurant I trusted to order food from. Much of their menu is marked gluten free. I did get my food take out because frankly I was nervous. The omelette was great as always and I was able to get a very good tasting gluten-free pancake to enjoy as well. I'm so happy I get to continue eating here and I really appreciate the staff. It's hard to comment on cross contamination because while I am celiac, to date, I have not had any symptoms related to cross contamination and since I'm new at this I have to assume at some point something has been cross-contaminated.
