I eat at Cafe Gratitude marginally frequently, and I have yet to get sick. I will say, I purposely order the items that are less likely to have cross-contamination, but in general, the staff is very knowledgeable and will work with you. It’s easy to stay safe *if you make sure to clarify that is an “allergy”/“sensitivity”/“celiac” situation*.
Before I was diagnosed I ate here a lot but when I went back after finding out I have Celiac and told the server he brought the manager out who told me anything made on the grill would be gluten contaminated so I should stick to the raw options on the menu, which are sadly not my fave. This place seems better for vegans and gluten intolerant than Celiacs.
Good to remember that although the menu is entirely vegan, it is not entirely gluten free, so it is good to ask and specify your allergy. The food is delicious, especially the Indian curry bowl. Good juices. Definitely expensive though and often very busy. Hard to park, try the street behind.
Sadly, I have to give this place a terrible review. While the menu claims that all items are GF except for the bread, I had a truly horrible reaction here. I was greeted very knowledgeably by the manager letting me know that the grilled veggies were the only possible cross contamination since they grill them on the same grill as their regular bread. I ordered a quinoa pasta with GF bread crumbs in top. Assured there was no possibility of cross contamination. Half way through eating, though very tasty, I noticed a pile of said veggies baked into my pasta. Ugh. I blew up and my throat started to swell. The staff is very friendly, and was attentive, but I still was glutened anyways. Avoid if serious allergies. :(
