Waiter was super helpful about explaining what menu items could be made gluten free. They even had really good gluten free bread that could be served with the apps. I had a great meal!

I stayed at the Robey (hotel) and ate at Cafe Robey five times during my stay—twice for breakfast, three times for dinner. Kitchen staff understand and take gluten free seriously. Small waitstaff happy to ask questions of the chef on your behalf and to double confirm an item is GF. I had the omelette, pork chop (minus crispy French onions), crispy pork belly, salmon and top sirloin. It’s hard to choose a favorite among the dinner entrees as they were all truly fantastic. The chef clearly puts a lot of thought into their offerings and all the food was just delightful and an experience in itself. Bartenders are also knowledgeable about which cocktails are gluten free. The fall romance was my favorite. I didn’t get sick at all. They do have gluten free bread. I did not verbally verify they have a gluten free toasting area for their bread but I did not get sick.

Celiac

Review


Never gotten sick here and I go here all the time. The only thing truly GF on the brunch menu is the omelet, but it is really good and seasonal vegetarian style. You can also get fruit salad and make your own breakfast from eggs and bacon type stuff. Pretty good, compared to a lot of places! Dinner is much easier, many more options and you really can’t go wrong with any of them. One of the managers has Celiac and always goes for the burger without the bun, but I tend to stick to fish or vegetables and everything is good. Since that manager is on the team, they had that person train everyone to know what “Celiac” means and that simply avoiding bread isn’t good enough. I’m pretty confident everyone who handles food here knows what is up—just make sure to communicate what you need and they definitely take care of you.
