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!

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.

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!

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.
