The waiter was awesome and helped me order celiac safe food and even got my slice of cheesecake himself since he wasnt sure if the bakery staff was educated on the protocol for celiac customers.

I called the restaurant to inquire about their gluten free options. I wanted to make sure cross contamination would not be an issue. I was told that they cook the GF pasta in the same water as the regular pasta and that they could not accommodate me by putting it in a clean pot with clean water. They also said things are cooked on the same surface, so the gluten free bun would not necessarily be gluten free anymore either. The woman on the phone asked the kitchen manager to verify the info. I will not be eating there. It doesn’t make sense to have gluten free items on the menu that will be cooked in gluten. Beware!

They have “GF upon request” items on menu. But the Shepherds Pie and Cobb Salad both tested “gluten” on my Nima Sensor.

I ordered their only GF salad & GF cheesecake. I’m uncertain which made me sick. But I’m sooooo sick. I don’t know if it is full blown gluten yet or just cross-contamination….but it feels like I ate gluten.

The gluten free burger bun was delicious! I was very grateful for the ease of ordering GF here. Many menu items are available gluten free upon request, and are clearly marked as so on the menu. I did not feel like I had any kind of issues or reactions after.
