Cafe Avalaun is the most amazing gluten free restersunt I’ve ever been to. Their staff is full of very kind people, and they make sure they do their best to make your food and get it to you quickly. Their food is absolutely delicious and I have never once had any reaction eating anything there. I have severe celiac disease and I give this restaurant an A+!
Great food! Really delicious. Easily accommodated dairy free as well. The crepes were superb. The entire facility is gluten free, which is fabulous. The charm was great. We’re from out of town but the next time we’re in Cleveland this makes this list of places to visit.
Our Thanksgiving hosts specially catered a Meal for me (Celiac) from here and I am so grateful. The food was delicious and most importantly I didn’t get sick. The Chili sweet Potatoes were especially amazing. I had turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and vegan green beans. I love this place. Thanks so much for offering Thanksgiving catering. A++++
Baked good are delicious. Especially the banana nut bread. Chicken and waffles was good as well. Slow service and not the most attentive. Food came out at separate times and all my mom got was a loaded mashed potato bowl and she got it way after I got my chicken and waffles. They were out of most vegetables for the Potato bowl
This is a designated gluten free not free café. They make everything from scratch and tried to purchase local farm fresh eggs and meat. They have amazing gluten-free crapes and they are Paleo friendly they also have gluten-free dairy free crapes. This is a good restaurant for vegetarians also and vegans.
Amazing food! We were so impressed be the allergy friendly options and tasty food we bought dinner to go as well. I have allergies to gluten, dairy and eggs the chef was very accommodating. My favorite dish was the Italian sandwich on the vegan bread. The vegan bread was delicious!!!
LOVE THIS PLACE! It is a dedicated gluten free restaurant that serves great breakfast and lunch items. The crepes (they have both savory and sweet) are amazing! I also recommend the Cuban sandwich - they put a little bit of spicy sauerkraut on it which makes it SO GOOD. The Fast Sammy breakfast sandwich is made with a homemade gf biscuit that is so good you’d never know it is gluten free. It is also a peanut-free restaurant (I also have a peanut allergy) and items that have nuts and dairy in them are clearly marked. This place is great for vegan and vegetarian options as well.
Unbelievable. They won’t let anyone in with a dish that may have gluten. The food is amazing and I recommend this place to anyone with wheat, soy, and peanut allergies, as there is none in the store whatsoever, and they have very good vegan and vegetarian options too!
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!
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 😍
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.
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 .
