Symptomatic Celiac

Overall Rating

Review


Went here with my husband (no gluten issues) who ordered an açaí bowl. When I asked our waiter (who was insanely kind and attentive) what he would recommend for someone with celiac he said “Honestly, almost everything is at risk of cross contamination in our kitchen minus the drinks at the bar.” I ordered a ginger drink and we left. I wish they would do better at this because pre-celiac this was one of my absolute favorite places.

This was the worst experience I’ve had at a restaurant that it supposed to be celiac friendly. I went here since it has a gluten free menu and checked with the waiter if they could accommodate celiac, to which they said they could. A few hours later my stomach was in so much pain and I started throwing up my entire meal. I was definitely glutened and would never recommend going here if you are celiac.

I’m obsessed with this place. Get the waffle!!!! Had to triple check it was gluten free as I was eating because it tasted so amazing. Staff was so friendly and followed protocols for my sensitive celiac. Highly recommend!

Really nice food with lots of gluten free options. Had the Indonesian bowl, corn ribs and fries. They confirmed fries were gf but I realised after that I didn't check about gf fryer. It looks like most fried food is gf and I didn't get ill but I'm not super sensitive.

Staff was very accommodating and asked for any food sensitivities right away. The manager personally went through the menu with me for recommendations regarding cross-contamination. Felt very safe.

They have a “transparency” menu which is really helpful to see commons allergens.

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*.

The restaurant is entirely vegan and has many gluten free options. I order the Mexican bowl. It was delicious and I had not issues. We plan to eat here again!

Loved every single thing I've ever ordered. And the desserts are to die for. Nearly everything is naturally gluten free. Definitely celiac friendly. ❤

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. :(

Very cool atmosphere and great food! Almost all of the menu is gluten free including desserts. Staff are knowledgeable. My favorites: I Am Humble & I Am Fortified. Soup of the day is usually amazing (and filling), as well.

This restaurant is all vegan and some items are gf and/or raw. We had the gf buckwheat pancakes and they were delicious. We also had the potato leek soup and ceasar salad, both were gf. The prices are reasonable given everything on the menu is organic.
