They have a separate gluten free menu upon request. The gluten free pano ales were huge and so fluffy! The staff was friendly and educated

Exactly as advertised. GF menu is just narrowed down items from the regular menu. GF pancakes are delicious (I eat them plain) + portions are good as well as their coffee. Have had breakfast there four days in a row. No issues.

What a pleasant surprise. The GF pancakes were really good. Service was great. If your in the area ... it’s convenient to the convention center and Disney Land. 👍

Multiple severe allergies (gluten and nuts). We were able to get gluten free pancakes. They were pretty good. Tested the pancakes using a Nima sensor because we were nervous about cross contamination and they were safe. Our daughter ate (severe gluten allergy) and did not have any reactions. Gave a 4 star because the food was safe, but not that tasty.

Had a late night meal here so don't know what it would be like during busy hours but I got a Greek chicken salad and ordered the grilled chicken with veggies meal for my son also gluten free so I could try some. It come with rice that has gluten which my waiter immediately told me about. (it was also noted on the gluten free menu). We got the rice on the side for my son. The food was better than expected for a diner and I didn't get sick.

Very disappointing. They are a bakery and don't offer any gf pastries or baked goods.

They didn’t have any of the gluten free pancakes. The waitress seemed mind boggled when I explained that I could not have regular pancakes instead, so I didn’t feel safe ordering anything else. Don’t waste your time.

We liked the GF pancakes, but there wasn’t much else on the breakfast menu. Still, something is better than nothing. It would be easy to add GF toast to go with eggs on the menu, but that’s just a suggestion.

My 6-year old has Celiac and a severe tree-nut allergy. The staff was knowledgeable and immediately informed me they don’t have a separate grill area, but they could clean it. My daughter almost immediately has a reaction and was fine. She had the gluten-free pancakes and loved them. She was so happy!

Limited choices. I had a chef salad with lots of requested changes, romaine instead of mixed greens, and things left off in addition to no croutons. It was good, service was a little slow. No reactions

My wife is celiac, so this is our go to ,when we eat out for breakfast. She has never had any issues with cross contamination. The GF pancakes are for real. Although I’m not celiac I prefer them over the original pancakes. They are light, full, and absorb the syrup more evenly. She usually gets the California omelette, not browned,with hash browns. Happy wife, happy life.

The GF pancakes were so good! Fast and friendly service, and the waitress let me know that she had told the kitchen about my special needs. Thumbs up!

At first, I felt really great about coming here! There was a gluten free menu advertised and on the website, and the receptionist we talked to told us about how Coco’s managed her allergy (which is always a good sign). But then they couldn’t find the printed gluten free menu, which was not great. Then, after I ordered, I heard a lot of confusion back in the kitchen with our server strongly telling the cooks to make gluten free pancakes. I really didn’t feel comfortable eating any of the food after hearing that. My family tried some of my food after it came out and seemed pretty sure that it wasn’t gluten free (not that they can tell, but who knows?). I think the kitchen staff might have been new (because other orders were being messed up as well), but I just didn’t feel confident eating there. Although I’m sure this place is awesome for those without an allergy, I would personally avoid Coco’s.

Attempted 2 go last night for pancakes. Walked in and waited and the waitress kept looking over never came to show to seat or so could ask. So I grabbed menu looked through & saw no gluten free pancakes advertised. Waitress came to front then walked away again to pour coffee. I waited longer & she was yelling back to kitchen. Looked around only 2 tables seated and eating so not busy.. I waited longer & then gave up walked out. No clue if have gluten free cakes or not. Was there Year half ago had salad in evening & they were mopping floor right up to our table. Bucket so strong of ammonia taste it with food & made husband & I sick plus again waitress didn’t come back check on us. Save trouble go elsewhere

They do not have separate fryers for the FF. I had to educate staff on cross contamination. Asked for naked fish and steak. Would not recommend for celiac.

They have a gluten free menu. The gluten free pancakes were delicious. They were made in a gf skillet, with a gf spatula. The server was knowledgeable and got us low sugar syrup because the regular had barley in it!

Food was delicious and staff knowledgeable and courteous. GF pancakes were great. Menu had usual disclaimer of 'cannot guarantee no cross contamination' and since my daughters with celiac don't have symptoms hard to know if they get glutened.

When ordering I showed the server that I wanted GF banana & pecan pancake with caramel drizzled on it with eggs over easy and sausage by pointing it on the menu then I pointed my finger showing him that it has to be GF. He nodded. My husband ordered the same thing but his weren't GF and he had omelette and bacon. When our food arrived the server gave me my husband's plate but my husband told him that it was my plate so he gave it to me. When I got my plate and I had a funny feeling that my plate was not GF so I had to ask the server if my plate was GF he was confused. I told him that I had already told him I wanted GF meal and told him that he will need to get me a new plate with GF order and also that he need to make sure that my eggs and sausage are also new because of cross contamination. He nodded apologetically, took my plate and told the cook what happened. The cook tried to put my eggs and sausage on a new plate and I saw the server correcting him and gesturing the cross contamination to him. The cook was not happy. Few minutes later, my GF plate arrived and I had to ask the server if my eggs and sausages were new he said, "Yes. I told the cook that the pancakes had touched your eggs and sausage and you would still get sick so he made you GF pancake and cooked you new eggs and sausages." I don't think the eggs and sausages were new tho because I feel sick now. :-/ I feel like the cooker didn't take the server and I seriously.

the food was good, but double check your order! I got all the way home--across the city--with my two young children, only to find they'd shorted me an entire meal. yes, I should've checked the order, but they have me the correct amount of drinks and the correct number of takeout containers, so I thought it was right...turns out they split one order into two containers and never even put in the order for the second kids meal. I usually wouldn't leave a bad review for that, because the food WAS good, but when I called they didn't even try to help; she just kept telling me "if you come back, we'll get that for you" which I could not do, since by the time I got home, it was past my children's bed time already... Anyway, check your food before you leave!

They do offer gluten free pancakes,that are good but the syrup is NOT unless you get the sugar free option. So enjoy the omelets and potatoes. (Unless you like sweeteners)

Been here many times they have a page on there menu that is gluten free with pancakes and eggs, sausage, bacon, and hash browns. They will even make smiley face pancakes for the kids. They also have lunch and dinner. We have never felt contaminated when leaving.

We went to the Cocos in Culver City but didn't end up eating there because they didn't have a gluten free menu and the staff didn't seem to really even know what gluten was. When we sat down the waiter said the only gluten free item on the entire menu was the gluten free pancakes (which were not listed on the menu, just verbalized by the waiter). We didn't feel safe eating there so we left.

They have a good sized GF breakfast menu, and best of all was the pancakes! They tasted so good I was worried they weren't GF at first. The waiter brought them out wearing plastic gloves and gave me my own bottle of syrup, so it seemed like they were making an effort to keep mine separate. So nice to have a place to go for breakfast.

Yummy gluten free pancakes on the gluten free menu. Menu has some lunch options too. They even let me get the special with gluten free pancakes for just ,50 more. Military discount too! No pure maple syrup though and coffee wasn't that great.

This particular Coco's is poorly run and very inconsistent, but it does have delicious gluten free pancakes and certain options that can be modified to be gluten free. I get the avocado shrimp salad, but be very sure they've given you corn tortillas strips and not wontons!

The Central Ave Coco's used to be a place where the staff paid attention to your needs. The few gluten-free foods varied over the years, but I never got sick because they listened to me. However, for my birthday last year, they changed their system and had a guy who seemed to be a maitre d'. (Why? Coco's?) Anyway, the menu had changed, and I was trying to work with the waitress about my gluten-free needs. She was trying, but the maitre d' was dictating what he thought I needed and overruling anything the poor waitress tried to do to help. Also, he didn't go back and ask the cooks when he wasn't sure, so I finally had to just get a plain steak and potato worth $$$. The steak came out raw, raw, raw. So, I complained, and he grabbed the WHOLE PLATE to take it back for a recook. In a near empty restaurant, this took over 10 minutes. My family finished before I even took a second bite. This USED to be a good restaurant. I contacted the company with a complaint, but of course, they never responded. Now, I refuse to step inside.
