Yum! No gf menu but the server was helpful! I had huevos rancheros and the server noted that the eggs were cooked in a separate pan. Everything was delicious and I didn’t have any reaction!

I felt really safe eating here. The staff was really knowledgeable and helped me to pick out some safe options (I had the veggie omelet w/hashbrowns and it was delicious). They even cook their GF toast in a separate area. The server with celiac is apparently really sensitive and they said she eats there all the time and has never gotten sick. Overall I had a really good experience.

It was a very busy breakfast morning so I was a little concerned that wait and kitchen staff would pay attention to specialinstructions, but I had a good breakfast and did not get sick! I got the Huevos Ranchero. It comes with a side of hash browns which I confirmed would be safe to eat. The service was slow, but I don't mind as long as it's safe. There were lots of gluten bread items around the restaurant, but they have gf bread on the menu and seem to understand about cross contamination.

Gluten free french toast
They will sub delicious fruit for the hash browns.
Alfresco dining can be chilly in the morning.  We preferred to eat the counter.
This is only available for retail sales & they order from Oregon.  I can not stress enough how good this was.
This one has hash browns which they cannot guarantee as GF.

Tips


Celiac

Get there early & sit at the counter if you enjoy meeting the locals. It can get very busy here. They treated us like locals. It feels like the Cheers of breakfast places with MUCH higher quality options.

I had the Little Breakfast, with egg, bacon, and a French toast made with their GF bread. It's like a seeded loaf kinda bread, kinda like an Irish soda bread kinda vibes. Delicious. And the OJ fresh squeezed.

Had a delicious gluten-free, dairy-feee breakfast. They were knowledgeable about Celiac and very accommodating. A server there has Celiac and so seems to have educated the kitchen. Recommend!

Best gluten-free breakfast cafe I have ever eaten in that treats people like gold. Get there early & try sitting at the counter. Make sure to speak to the manager behind the counter or ask to speak to the server who has celiac disease to feel even safer. They make the eggs dishes in pans so they won't be contaminated. I ate there three out of my four days in town. Don't miss the gluten-free toast. I am drooling just thinking of it. They have a superb selection of tea too.

The staff was knowledgeable about celiac disease and cross-contamination message. Apparently there is a staff member with celiac disease. I had the vegetable hash and it was delicious.
