    Updated review (12/2018) - Visited again and updated my review, moving from 2 stars to 4. Positives: The GF items now have the case all to themselves, with the other items in a separate area. The server said that the tongs are used for GF items only. We Nima-tested a doughnut hole and got a smile (no gluten), yay! Negatives: I wish I didn't feel like I was annoying the counter server by asking about the tongs - there's room for management to do some training here. Still don't love the pasta stirrers (I really don't get this trend - sure, it's Insta friendly, but who wants a starchy latte?); and it'd be great to have more information about the source of the GF items (Whole Treats, I think? but from everything I can tell, that bakery closed a few years ago). Another local business told me that the Whole Treats items are made on-site at Coffeebar in a separate (GF) area of the kitchen (which is great!), but I didn't want to annoy the Coffeebar server further by asking him about it. Old review: Not celiac-safe. They do have GF baked goods, but they’re in a case with other offerings and the same tongs are used for everything. PLUS, they offer pasta (!) in lieu of straws, as stirrers. I am no fan of plastic straws but I really hope this does not become a trend.

    The staff were nice, knowledgeable and accommodating, and even got a fresh milk pitcher to assure no cross contamination. However, there are wheat pasta stirrers, so be warned and beware. All in all, nice, helpful staff and good, safe, tasty coffee.

    Great coffee- vanilla almond milk latte was delicious. The GF pumpkin pecan muffin was moist and tasty. Cute atmosphere with plenty of seating. Definitely our new Truckee go to for coffee.

    If you’re in Truckee and need some coffee and a snack, definitely stop here! They always have some gf pastries and do have a bathroom (contrary to previous review).

    We love Coffeebar. We have been coming here when we vacation for many years. They always have a selection of GF bakery items, and the banana chocolate chip muffin is one of my daughter's favorites. Love that they have a new, larger location, too, with even more GF options.

    Awesome selection of GF baked goods! Orange bundt cake is amazing, only downside is no bathroom.

    There are two locations. This is for the one on Donner Pass Road--the Coffeebar Bakery. I chose to go here bc they offered a gf vegetable frittata, which I thought would be more hearty. Disappointed to see the server use the same tongs used for all the gluten-containing stuff on the frittata, and that they put in on a display shelf under a bunch of gluten-filled stuff where crumbs could easily cross contaminate. If you are celiac, be wary. Great coffee though!

    First place I go to when I'm up in Truckee. They have great almond milk lattes and GF treats. I have celiac so it's nice to come here with friends and have coffee and enjoy a treat.

    Tons of yummy breakfast treats that are gluten free! The pumpkin streudel muffin is delicious. The quiche was also gf the day I was there, I don't know if it always is. Just ask the staff, they are super helpful. As a side note, this place has amazing coffee (think Italian coffee bar), and the baristas do some awesome latte art!! Great, fun, laid back atmoshpere.
