Truth. I am a partner at this cafe and want to update everyone with 2017 information. I apologize for past mistakes. Our surfaces are not completely gluten-free. When a guest indicates they have a gluten sensitivity, we wipe down the crepe machine and use separate utensils to spread and flip the gluten-free batter. However, crumbs and drops of wheat are in the area and could touch the crepe. We know that there is a wide range of gluten sensitivity out there, and we do not encourage highly sensitive people to come into our cafe. Wheat flour is in the air. But you know who you are much better than we do. We have been delighting guests with gluten-free crepes for 14 years. We welcome suggestions from your community! Call me 919-233-0288 extension 1. Thank you for helping us to better serve you! Terri Pastrana
So gross. The buckwheat crepes I had were inedible. I had a "sandwich type" crepe and a dessert crepe. Then I got ill after eating the few bites that I could manage to get down. Also, the owner was there and she was incredibly rude, though the cashier was very friendly and helpful. There's a crepe place in Southern Pines called Betsy's Crepes that is absolutely delicious and I felt amazing after eating there. Go there instead of here.
Several times they told me that the buckwheat crepes were safe for celiacs, cooked on a dedicated surface. On a subsequent visit an employee told me NO griddle is dedicated to gluten-free batter due to lack of space, consequently their crepes are NOT safe for someone with celiac disease. (Remember, the safe level of gluten is something less than 20 parts per million -- like a drop in the bathtub.)
Gluten free Crepes and they ask if it is allergy or preference so they can clean the utensils and cooking surface used to prepare ur food. The only downside is the staff can be rude at times and they are not very knowledgable about whether or not items other than the Crepes are gluten free. They also serve the amazing local organic coffee of Larry's Beans.
A tremendous selection of gluten free crepes. You must request your crepe be made with buckwheat, and inform them of your inability to eat gluten. Staff are very knowledgeable of what is and is not safe for us to eat, though most of what is on the menu is safe so long as you order the buckwheat crepe. The salsa is not gluten free- I bring my own ketchup with me to eat with brunch crepes. The dessert crepes and coffee (especially the cappuccinos) are amazing!!
