I love cafe yumm and when I told them I had celiac they seemed to take me seriously and marked that I have an allergy. Just express your needs clearly and hope for the best. I didn't have a reaction!!

Assistant manager knew gluten free and instructed the cooks to prepare my meal in a separate area. This is my go-to whenever I’m at the airport.

I love that there are so many gluten free options here! They have a separate menu to give you, and they have an allergy button they press when you order, which always makes me feel safe. Did I mention the bowls are completely delicious!!???

Ate here once before and do not recall getting sick. This time, not the case. I asked specific question, was clear about my Celiac Disease and cross-contamination issues, and double check that she would note on my ticket about my severe allergy, which she confirmed. I got gluten-bombed right away. Not ideal pre-flight.

Plenty of GF options, all listed on a specific menu in their allergy binder. Be aware that the breakfast menu seems to be missing from that binder. I asked about the Yumm!lette and my cashier checked with the cooks to confirm that it is GF. She also told me that she marked my order as an allergy so that the cooks would all change their gloves, etc. Overall I felt very comfortable and safe ordering here, and will definitely come back next time I'm passing through PDX!

Bad day @ PDX—-no gf bread @ Cafe Yumm today. Consider eating before passing security. Past experience was good.

I have eaten at the airport Cafe Yumm three times without getting sick. I'm a dietitian who also has celiac disease. The employees aren't particularly knowledgeable, but if you explain your needs clearly, they will mark your order as "allergy". They change gloves before preparation. I always get the traditional yum bowl.

They continued to try to give me a wheat bun saying it was gluten free. They thought that every bun was gluten free. Obviously I will not be returning. I was too afraid of getting sick to eat the burger I actually got.

They really seem to understand gluten free. They have a binder with their gluten free menu. They even had gluten free soups which I could of tried, but I went with an original bowl with chicken. They have many organic and non gmo ingredients!

So good. Many things are gluten free and they have a gluten free menu. It's quite expensive for a bowl of rice though. So I think twice before spending $24 on two bowls of rice.. but it is super yummy. FYI you can buy their yumm sauce at Roths in the fridge area by the cheese and make your own

I loved whole bowl when I was living in Portland, OR. This is the next closest and I think it’s Yumm lol. It’s healthy, they can make most items gf and you can buy their Yumm sauce separately. It’s definitely worth trying!

I make copycat versions of the sauce at home, but still like to visit the restaurant once in a while to reset my palate. Best part about cafe yumm to me is real, whioe food ingredients.

The staff seemed knowledgeable and treated my Yumm! Baby bowl as an allergy order. The pricing was reasonable, the food good, and the size of the large bowl appropriate. This place wasn't exceptional, but I can still recommend it as a safe option.

Clean restaurant. Staff very nice. Interesting concept but needs work. Gluten Free food isn’t labeled properly and staff has to keep checking with the cooks and there is always confusion. Also, very unhealthy junk canola oil is in most of the food. No one should be ingesting a fake lab made industrial oil like canola, especially people with autoimmune diseases. This place could be safer to eat at, but they need to work on a few things. I wish them luck as they make adjustments.

Cashier pulled out a nutrition guide from under the counter, apparently it's online too. The only non-GF category is their wraps and bentos, and those are reportedly prepared in a separate area of the kitchen. Portion sizes aren't the best for the price but I liked the Original bowl with chicken.

Many of their items are GF, and they have a separate GF menu to make ordering easier. Portions seemed a bit small, but the food was filling. Loved the Yumm sauce.

I felt sick after eating a bowl here even though the server assured me it was celiac friendly. I’m guessing they don’t take measures against cross contaminating.

I have eaten here at least 3 times without any issues. I have found the employees to be knowledgeable and helpful. They always mark my order as "allergy" and prepare it separately with fresh gloves. I have celiac disease and I'm also a dietitian so I'm very careful. I always get the traditional Yumm bowl.

Update 2016 I've increased my rating because they finally have plain grilled chicken as a protein option. Finally after 4 years!! They also have gf Atlas Cider on tap as part of the $10 bowl & brew combo. Sweetness!!! And gf cookies for dessert. 2012 Good food but all the meats are marinated in gluten based sauces so your only protein is tofu and I'm not at all fond of soy.

I needed some food on-the-go, and happened to be at Target nearby. I remembered friends mentioning this place, checked this handy app, and it looked safe. I had the original bowl, and added chicken. I also bought a packet of the crunchy noodles - they seem to be the same product I've purchased at Whole Foods before, just with a Cafe Yumm label. I've had celiac disease for years, but don't eat out much. I never thought to ask about the chicken in tacos at places like Baja Fresh and Koi Fusion, but after getting sick after eating both, learned that the chicken is often marinated in soy sauce, and therefore not gluten free. Whoops. When I asked about the chicken, the gal ringing me up wasn't sure, and asked her co-worker. He said the original chicken was gluten free, but that there was another kind of chicken that wasn't. He then directed her to a binder where she could find this information. So it's good to know that exists. I'm glad I asked. I'll definitely return to this place next time I'm in a pinch and need some fast food on-the-go.

I love cafe yumm. It's my fast food. I can't eat gluten or dairy so they will sub out the dairy with more avocado. I love to bring home a bottle of the sauce and make yumm bowls at home. Beans, rice, veggies and sauce. Delicious!

They seem to be careful if you mark allergy alert and have great gluten free options but beware their tortilla chips use to be gluten free but they switched brands so they are no longer safe to eat (which kind of sucks and is scary for anyone assuming they are still safe)

I had the original bowl, it was very good. The staff is aware of celiac and the need of not cross contamination. My husband, who is not celiac, had the gluten free turkey sandwich which was also very good. Very clean restaurant and great staff

Gluten free bowls of Yumm! I had a bowl full of rice, beans, Yumm sauce, avocado, olives, tomato and chicken. Healthy and delicious! I was told they were prepared in a separate part off the kitchen with clean gloves and while cross contamination is a possibility they work really hard to avoid it.
