    Ordered the bacon cheeseburger and came with a side of fruit. Didn't feel sick after and enjoyed the burger. They do not have a separate fryer for fries, just an FYI. Staff were amazing to my needs!

    This restaurant was the same as all Disneyland places. GF options...Chef came out and spoke with us about our allergy and we ordered with specifics. They are always careful about cross contamination but can't guarantee but I have never been affected and I am highly sensitive celiac. Great option to eating inside the amusement park.

    A decent place to get a meal while you are in Disneyland. They are careful in food preparation and do gluten free right. It's also very convenient to get a meal right in Disneyland that is safe. As is the case with Disney, it was overpriced for what you get. Also, they must not have a dedicated fryer for french fries - I ended up with fruit with my burger.

    Classic Disney attention to food allergies, with a personal visit from the chef. GF options are somewhat limited, but there are still choices. We all enjoyed our food. Service was fairly good. Ambiance/menu was not my first choice, but it's what we got for short-notice GF.

    Not a lot of options. The hamburger option is $18 you can get a cheaper burger at any quick service.

    Love this place! My 4th visit in 3 yrs; never been sick. I have many food issues so the chef always comes out to talk to me. Burgers are the best but the roasted turkey sandwich was a nice change.

    Extremely good experience. Chef came out and talked to us. Explained exactly what and how they prepared all the GF food.

    I ate two meals here (breakfast and lunch). Both were delicious and I had no reactions. The chef and both servers were very helpful and kind. Made for a great experience.

    When we put our name in at the Carnation Cafe they asked about allergies. I told them I had Celiacs, but don't really expect them to cater to me. When we sat down the chef came out to go over the menu with me. There are several items like chili on the menu that are gluten free and they substituted their brioche bun for a gluten free bun. As anyone that was a foodie before celiacs knows, there is no such thing as good gluten free bread, but as time goes by it is getting better. Their gf bun was actually pretty good!Now for the best part, not only did the chef take my order, but he prepared it and delivered it to me to avoid cross contamination! As Disneyland has to cater to a lot of different folks they can't possibly have a gluten free facility, especially as we make up a very small portion of the population. That said, they went way above and beyond. I left feeling pretty sure I would not get sick... And I didn't! Note to all of the haters out there: Disneyland no longer has a Gluten Free list because of all of the Celiacs that gave them a hard time over certification. Please stop trying to make your problem everyone else's responsibility! It is causing businesses to avoid trying to help us!
