I called ahead of time to ask if the GF toast advertised on their menu was toasted in a separate toaster and was told yes. Upon arrival, I informed the server that I had celiac disease and was told that in fact, they “get busy” often and “sometimes toast regular toast in the GF toaster”. I ended up allowing the rest of my party to eat and had a GF granola bar in my purse. Very disappointing that they have a supposed “GF” toaster that isn’t gluten free. Will not return.

Not many gluten free options and I was advised the gluten free bread was very small and not worth the money to order.

I called to ask, and they said the only thing that might be safe here for someone with Celiac Disease is a bowl of fruit. Even with the bowl of fruit, however, they said they couldn’t guarantee no cross-contamination.

There were two gf options on the menu. I chose the sorghum crepe with eggs, ham and bacon. I specified that I was celiac. However, my breakfast came with non gf sausage on top of my eggs and crepe, as well as gf bread toasted in the same toaster as non gf bread. I told the waiter (whom I believe was the manager) that I couldn’t eat the meal due to cross contamination. He asked to to just remove the sausages and eat the rest (all with a condescending look). As I tried to explain why I couldn’t eat it, he kept cutting me off and tried to blame me for not knowing how it is at Cora’s restaurants. Yes, it was my first time there but after being clear about my needs, I don’t expect attitude from staff. In the end, I had a bowl of fruit.

Not celiac safe. They had gluten free bread for toast but everything is done in the same kitchen with the same utensils and they were unwilling to make any effort to make it safe. The waitress told me I’d ‘probably be ok’ with some fruit. That was it. We left.
