Weirdest thing, the breakfast was excellent! I asked for a GF dish and then no dairy either like butter or cream for the eggs. They ensured me my dish was safe. My friend and I had a lovely time. About 45 minutes to an hour I had an attack, running to the bathroom for the rest of the day. I was sure they had snuck in dairy by accident. But then later that day my friend said she had the same issues and she is not allergic or intolerant to gluten or dairy so now I am just thinking we had food poisoning. I’m not sure I would ever go back because I have heard now a lot of people have gotten sick from them. Go at your own risk!

I had brunch here and they have many gluten free options available! I ordered the BLTAE (basically a BLT with extra toppings) and the GF bread was great!

Food is great but as usual double check. First time there we ordered two egg sandwiches on GF bread and they came on reg bread! Food was very good but be diligent! Did not get sick after sandwich was remade. Bacon fried rice was also amazing!

Why aren't there more reviews for this place?! There aren't a ton of GF options, but their menu is small to begin with. They use sugar kisses bread and it's INSANE. They slice it super thick and it's like regular sourdough... I will definitely be returning. (I always review the next day to ensure I haven't been glutened)

not everything on their menu is specifically gluten free but I would say majority is. Their quinoa bowls and salads are delicious, plus they have gluten free desserts and macarons.
