    I absolutely love this place. I love the Croque Madame so much that I can't bring myself to try anything else. My parents always ask to eat here when they visit from Maryland. They ate gluten-free crepes in Quebec City and said they weren't nearly as good as these. Staff is extremely friendly and sweet.

    What a gem! My husband and I were in town visiting friends and we ate as many meals as possible here. The food is absolutely delicious! Not delicious for gluten free food, just plain delicious period! The Lemon Bar and Philly Cheesecrepe were my favorites, but everything was amazing. Service is a little slow, but worth the wait. Now, Cafe Avalaun, could you please open a location in Massachusetts?? Seriously. I mean it!

    If I lived closer I would invest in this company and probably live on the premises. Amazing food and knowledgeable staff.

    This place is amazing! Everything on their menu is gluten free, soy free, and peanut free. They have labels for vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, nut free, paleo, primal, corn free, AIP. So pretty much amazing. Crepes(sweet/savory), paninis, cold wraps, salads, omelettes, eggs. And they have a coffee bar (unsweet almond milk and coconut milk are their dog options). I had their Grazing Goat crepe and it was phenomenal 😍

    Good but not absolutely amazing-the best part is not worrying. The tacos were not very good. The chicken and waffles, however, are worth trying.

    Yes. Everything is gluten free, however I extremely underwhelmed. Maybe we were there on a bad day ( the restaurant was empty ) but the food was bland, the staff was less then personable, like we were bothering them. The tables were dirty. I'll give this place another try but very disappointed as of right now :(

    It's a pleasure and appreciated to have a gluten free restaurant! This is my second visit. The food is good. It's not fabulous! My first visit I had a paleo Deja Vu bowl. It was lacking any real exciting layers even though it was braised beef, whipped white veggies, greens. Lots of room for improvements in taste and servings. The size for $12.00 was an estimated 4 ounces of food. Today we had Philly crepe and Notella and beet and greens salad. Decent just not exciting. No stomach though! We will be back.

    This is a wonderful dedicated business. The jasmine tea was wonderful! We had chicken and waffles, the Cuban, and a s'mores crepe. Everything was fabulous...nothing bad to say! Just wish o could give more stars!

    Loved this place! As a highly sensitive celiac it's rare for me to eat out safely. The food was tasty, with no after effects. They have alot of breakfast choices including specialty crepes, muffins, etc... and for lunch one of the popular items are paninis. I'd highly recommend this place. Double check their website before going though, they have limited hours. Enjoy!

    I am sitting in Cafe Avalaun writing this review. OUTSTANDING food. The Croque Madame is excellent, very tasty. Chocolate chip muffin -wonderful. good tea and I am buying a few items from the bakery case before I go. EVERYTHING IS GLUTEN FREE. they cater to various needs, but primarily gluten free and vegan. I plan to return tomorrow, before I leave the area. BTW, this could not be more convenient as it is midway between a job location and my hotel. I wish I lived nearer, as I could come to Cafe Avalaun every day!

    Awesome ! Good flavored and lots of options . We need more like this in Cleveland . I bet a full sized restaurant would do well with this style menu . This is a solid healthy breakfast/lunch bakery option . The bakery is small but they take special orders on breads and such , very cool .

    This place is amazing. Especially if you have celiac like myself it's great to eat out without the worry of possibly getting sick. Not to mention their baked goods and cappuccino is delicious. The only issue I had was I ate to much because I have no self control. Kudos to cafe avalaun.

    Yesterday, I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for the very first time, but I intend to return over and over again! We all enjoyed the food and treats immensely! It has been way too long since I've had a panini, and I relished every bite. They have specialty coffees and bakery items too, which are excellent! The crepes were perfect and nothing in this place tastes gluten free. As a Celiac, I felt like a kid in a candy store! We took plenty of bakery bread and treats home for another day. I recommend it highly!!!!!

    Café Avalaun is a dedicated 100% GF bakery, crêperie, and coffee shop. Just walking in for the first time was a little overwhelming, looking at the entire menu, and knowing that there is absolutely nothing there that is not safe for me to eat, I had a Clevelander crêpe for my first go -- mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions, served with crème fraîche (think pierogi). I followed it with a bacon walnut maple glazed doughnut, and the Kenya Nyeri Gura Crooked River Coffee. It was all truly gorgeous.I had a friend with me who does NOT eat GF. She had the same -- a Clevelander and a doughnut. She agreed that the food was absolutely delicious, and the texture was perfect. She also commented that the atmosphere reminded her of a few favorite cafes she used to frequent in Seattle. This is not apologetic substitute food. This is GF that will even thrill gluten eaters, and the atmosphere is somehow body open and cozy.I brought home several pastries, and I'm pretty sure they are going to disappear faster than I intended.The location is completely out of the way for me, but it's worth the trip. I think I'll be working my way through trying out the whole menu whenever I find myself on that side of the metro Cleveland area. I'd give it 10 stars if that were possible.

    Everything in this place is GF! Delicious crepes in both savory & sweet options. Not much bakery out & ready when we visited, but it was late afternoon. Going back early to try some muffins! It was great not having to worry about CC at all!
