They have gluten free bagel options and are pretty good about cross contamination! You can get any sandwich (just make sure to look at the filling for anything fried) with a GF bagel!

Used to be one of my fav restaurants pre-celiac diagnosis. My partner and I had to make a last minute decision to make lunch and I saw a GF bread option on their menu. Unfortunately it seems like they have 0 to no gluten free protocol. I could see everything bagel seasoning from my partner’s sandwich all over my gf bagel. I ate 1/4 regrettably and felt sick after :/ goodbye CBA it was nice knowing yah.

Cross-contamination nation! Sure, they'll make you a sandwich on a gluten free bagel, they might even change their gloves and make it on paper if they're not super busy, but all their items are touched by multiple sandwich makers who aren't thinking about crumbing on their meats, cheeses, etc. I've eaten here and have made it out alive, but I would never ever take my celiac-sister here.

I walked a ways to get here, and I was all excited to try a delicious new GF bagel, bit when we got there, all they had was Udi's. I was expecting a lot better based off of their website. I ended up going somewhere else to get breakfast.

Amazing steamed bagel sandwiches. I have celiac and have never had a reaction (I eat here twice a week). The staff is extremely friendly and they have a nice area to dine in.
