The staff is very aware of celiac and asks if you want it prepared in a Celiac safe environment. They don’t have tons of options but they do have bread and are very aware of it. They also are aware of what syrups are gluten free. They are also so kind and just accommodating in general. Highly recommend

Cute place off of Medina Square. Excellent gluten free food! Almost everything on their menu can be made gluten free. They even have a designated gf cook area!

Take many measures to make sure my food is safe every time I go. They shut the grill down and clean it and cook my food completely separate from everything else. One of my favorite places to go

They take many measures to make sure their is no cross contamination and the gluten free bread is delicious! They also have gluten free cake pops and desserts! The service is lovely and I never have to explain what Celiac Disease is! I often order the club sandwich and it’s scrumptious! 100/10 I do recommend it.

Ignore the reviews from 2018. They have increased gf options and no one who works there has an attitude! They have really stepped up during the new restrictions and made online ordering and curbside pick up a breeze! There is even a box to check celiac on the online form! Try the cranberry chicken salad!

Immediately asked if I was celiac as their procedure is different. I had a breakfast sandwich on g-free bread - I should have asked if they had some sort of spread for it as it was a bit bland. BUT they have sweet treat options also and it was a open, welcoming space.

Love the chicken salad on gf bread paired with tomato basil soup. Yummy! It’s great to have a variety of items to choose from. Also like to grab a couple of the the gf granola bars. So nice to have a cafe-style place that understands gluten free. 👍

Not very friendly. First they only have a couple of gluten free prepacked "bakery" items that I could have gone to a grocery store to get. For sandwiches they up charge by $2.00. when I went to order that, they told me the didn't have the wrap in for my breakfast burrito. On top of that the server had an attitude. Excuse me but I didn't choose to have celiac disease! Rude...

My daughter has celiac. Really nice cafe that has gluten-free bread, and they can make any of their sandwiches gluten-free. The melts and paninis are wrapped in foil, so they don't get contaminated on the hot sandwich press.

The chili and tomato bisque they had that day were also gluten-free, and they also had granola bars and muffins that were gluten-free. Great to be able to go into a cafe like this and have so many more options than Panera!
