    I’ve had celiac disease for 7 years. This place has the best gluten free pancakes I’ve ever had anywhere. Thanks, Francis!

    I loved my huge gluten free waffle with fresh strawberries. My waitress was knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination. Eating here was a great experience! I would go back for sure.

    The native GF options are good--your standard breakfast protein fare. The GF waffles need some attention, however. They are a wad of gum and not very good. In this day and age, GF mixes are very advanced and smooth. There's no reason to have a gluey product, unless of course you're not the one eating it.

    The had a clear GF menu, excellent & attentive service, family friendly. I got the GF waffle. I assumed that it would be some frozen item they kept on hand. It was a giant fresh Belgium style waffle that I could barely finish. Will absolutely return.

    Gluten free pancakes were delicious. Our waitress wasn’t as knowledgeable as the one serving the table next to ours. I overheard that waitress telling a customer about the designated fryers, etc. I would have liked to know my options after being told I couldn’t have the sausage but overall it was a good experience and had a specific gluten free menu within the regular menu which I appreciated.

    I'll give it 3 stars because I didn't get sick and aside from reading reviews to see if/how many people got glutened going somewhere, I usually take negative opinions with a grain of salt, but I gotta agree with people on the gummy borderline gross of the waffles. They had a sweet flavor, but the texture was thick and gummy and nauseated me and I couldn't even eat half. Tried to ask the waitress when we ordered about anything that could be gf that wasnt in the little box, but to be as slow as they were, she was not interested in answering any questions. $10-12 for a gummy waffle, not worth it. The non-gfers in group didnt care for their waffles or sausage gravy either, so we'll save our $63 and eat cereal at home.

    Two of our family members are GF. Both got the GF pancakes and they were okay, but got very gummy over time. My DH said that the ones I make do this too (I don't recall this being the case), but neither had any issues after eating there.

    I had the gf waffles one day and the gf pancakes the next day while on vacation. Had no issues from either. Really good food. You get 3 big fluffy pancakes, couldn't even finish.

    Way overpriced not a $more like a $$for breakfast items. Charge $2 extra for gluten free pancakes were gummy. A meal for family of 3 was $46.

    Good selection. Both pancakes and waffles but other stuff for lunch dinner. Toothpicks are put in GF meals so you know it's a GF meal. Tasty and friendly. Quick service.

    My family went here both Saturday and Sunday for breakfast while on vacation. Saturday was a great experience! Server on top of things, delicious food for everyone. Sunday was an epic disaster: waited half an hour for a table, an hour for food, saw the server who's name tag says she was a manager a handful of times the entire meal. We should have gotten up and left. I spent the afternoon and my drive back home to Wilmington DE sick and uncomfortable because the food we waited forever for was contaminated. Moral: if you have to wait, leave. When they fall behind and the kitchen ends up in the weeds it all goes downhill.

    Pancakes had a good flavor but texture was gummy. It would be better if they made it from a pancake mix box.

    delicious food, gluten-free options including waffles and pancakes, great service. The cook messed up my order, but my server caught it and made them redo it before it even came to the table. Very well done.

    GF pancakes and waffles were excellent! Potatoes were nothing to write home about. My son loved it and wanted to move in next door so he could eat here every day! Haha!

    Delicious! I had a Belgian waffle with cinnamon apples. Staff was very friendly. It's nice to eat out where gluten free isn't a big deal.

    Will clean grill thoroughly and use a separate waffle iron that is mainly used for gf- sometimes used for regular waffles if busy but they assured us for allergy (celiac) that they clean it extremely well. GF waffle and pancakes were delicious. Son and I that are celiac feel great! Spoke to owner as well. Staff extremely friendly. Loved it!

    Pancake was good. Gluten free menu. Don't expect anything above diner level food. It is tasty and worth the price

    Went in to enjoy a nice breakfast and the only breakfast item listed on the menu is pancakes or Belgian waffle! I asked if it was possible to get some bacon and eggs and they said everything gets cross contaminated... Even the pancakes and waffles! It all cooked on the same spots!!! Definitely NOT celiac friendly!!!

    Food was eh. Not having eaten at any of the other local pancake houses I can't compare this to anything but a diner and as far as diners go it was just ok. I would have given two stars but they had a few kid friendly choices for my nine y.o.celiac so I give it three stars

    We are just experimenting with gluten free because of behavior challenges - and have noticed a difference when ordering out. We don't often see Gluten Free possibilities on family-friendly menus. SO happy to have this option so close to home.

    Waffles were delicious!! Other breakfast food was pretty good too (I got one of their combo meals). My SIL had an omelet that looked great and she said it was very tasty! Highly recommend!
