I was lucky enough to have the manager serving us. He told me the only gluten was in a small box by the cash register! He was so kind and came by to ensure my husband and I enjoyed our meal since he knows I was recently diagnosed and my husband is trying to join along. Food was delicious and so many options!
Love love love the food here! My only complaint is that they offer bread with every meal and there are sometimes crumbs on the sales counter from it... I wish the bread was gluten free or not offered at all.
Finally got to try this place My Mother In Law had broccoli cheddar soup that was delicious and felt light and healthy. My husband had Ginger steak and rice noodles with chicken chili vinaigrette dressing, it was bland. I had Thai chicken and rice noodles and almost immediately felt glutened. They use a Kikoman gluten free soy sauce that could be an issue(FDA is refusing to regulate gluten free items) but that is just an idea. Only me, can go to a gluten free place and get glutened! Ugh! I was not impressed with the knowledge of the staff. The manager, who was lovely and attempting to clarify had no idea what the Shoyu sauce was that was indicated as an allergen on their menu. She did call her manager and told me that it was the kikoman soy sauce. We saw a container of the soy sauce and it was marked as using no gluten products but Shoya sauce that she googled has wheat. I appreciate the attempt but it feels a lot like a chain attempting to provide gluten free without proper knowledge of where contamination can be hidden in plain sight, although their menu indicates the opposite. The employees seemed to have no personal knowledge of the issues with gluten. Although they were all nice. It's a training problem not an uncaring staff. They also have regular bread sitting on the counter at checkout in a plastic box. Again confusing! Why not provide gluten free bread and not risk the potential for cross contamination and for heavens sake why put it next to every meal you make? I really wanted to love this place! I will probably try it again as it's close to my mother in law and she loves soup. Interior is comfortable and nice design. Outside patio. Bathrooms and tables could have used more attention. I will include photos of menu as it explains the order process well.
Food is amazing and everything is gluten free! I recommend the tofu! :)
Amazing! Entire menu is gluten free! Healthy and delicious and the staff was exceptional! Highly recommend!
Yummy, all gluten free menu and did I mention yummy? Go there now! :)
Tons of delicious menu item choices that are all gluten free! I live 40 minutes away and it's worth the drive
This place is amazing. I have been there at least 20 times because it's one of the only places I trust to eat out at. Everything on the menu is gf. They even have rice noodles for broth bowls
Excellent quality and great service. I frequently come here since it's so near my home. The only other place I feel so assured of gluten-free is my own place Cafe Avalaun.
Everything on the menu is gluten free! The only reason I won't give it 5 stars is because they have bread as an option. They do keep it separated in a small case and the only person who touches it is the cashier. It would be nice if they didn't have the bread though. I have been twice and loved it. I love that they have house made drinks such as cranberry cayenne lemonade and fruit punch with coconut water (my favorite so far).
Love this place! Everything is gluten-free except for bread. The menu is full of fresh and healthy options.
Great healthy options--salads, bone broth. Very accommodating to allergies. Only item on menu with gluten is a piece of bread at end of the service line. It would be ideal if that were gluten free.
Everything on the menu is gluten free!!! They do have an option to get a slice of bread but it's completely segregated from the rest of the food with no risk of cross contamination! This place is like a godsend and the food is delicious
Most of the menu is gluten free! Including the kids menu! Good food and fresh ingredients. Do yourself a favor and try one of the many different types of lemonades and juices. This location just opened and everyone was really helpful and friendly. I’m also dairy free and they took time to double check that the dish I ordered was entirely dairy free.
Found this great place for gluten-free meals. All there items on the menu are gluten-free. In fact, the only gluten they have in the entire store is an offering of bread at the checkout. Bread is kept in a separate container and meals are usually covered by the time they offer you bread, so there is little to no potential for cross-contamination (i asked for my meals to be prepared in takeout containers). I ate here four times over my two day stay with no issues. Great healthy salad bowl options and fantastic bone broth.
The food choices are plenty and all were gluten free! The only thing that had gluten was the bread and it was sitting next to the register - nowhere near the food. Everything was fresh and organic and very tasty. I was so happy I didn’t have to exclude a thing. Even the beef broth was gluten free!
After the rave reviews, this place was a huge disappointment. I’m vegetarian and dairy free as well as GF. The employee behind the counter looked blank when I asked her about items on the menu that were listed as containing gluten, so she consulted a manager. The manager told me that the Sriracha they used had gluten, which eliminated many of the items I was interested in. He suggested a broth bowl, so I went for that, and was disappointed in how flavorless it turned out to be. Both the friends I went with (who have no dietary restrictions) were unimpressed with the food as well.
Looking for a place to eat, decided to try Core Life Eatery. Turned out to be one of the best decisions of ours in a long while. Good, friendly people that are willing to help with allergies as well as gluten free. Good food too. This business is celiac friendly.
I was worried the broth bowl would not fill me up so added the Mediterranean salad size small and was the best lunch I’ve had in a long time! The fountain drinks were a fun selections d brightened my work day. Felt like a special treat. What a great place w so many gf options! Thank you Core Life 😘😘
Absolutely delicious food. Everything is gf and it has vegan options too! It boasts a delicious selection of rice and veggie bowls and a create your own program. It also offers fresh-squeezed lemonades and juices plus bottled water and bai energy drinks. Highly recommended!
Absolutely everything there is gluten free EXCEPT the slice of multigrain bread you can get with your meal at the end. They keep that in a separate bin off to the side. Even with all of that if you tell them you have an allergy of any kind they will happily take off their gloves, wash their hands, and have one dedicated person build your whole meal for you. The menus is very well marked with the top allergies including every possible source of soy. The food is fresh and tasty though a tad expensive for the portion size in my opinion but for something that I KNOW what is in my food and has very very little chance of being cc’d I’m willing to pay for it.
Great Celiac safe place for a quick meal. The entire menu is gluten free so you can order anything. The only gluten in the whole restaurant is a piece of bread available at the end of the line behind the cash register. That bread is stored in a sealed box and away from all the other food. No chance for cross contamination.
CoreLife is an assembly line type place where you start at one end and they make your food in front of you, passing it down the line until it's done. The only gluten they serve is bread, but it's at the very end and was easy to avoid. It's not cheap, however; I paid $13 for a salad and coffee.
ALL ITEMS ARE GLUTEN FREE!!!! from their website: It just makes sense. Especially when eating real foods that powers us… Eat what is in season. At CoreLife Eatery, everything we prepare starts as real, whole food and we focus on the best, freshest available. That means that we work with those around us to find the foods that are at their peak. We look for organic and GMO-free. Even the bones that we simmer every night are sourced from organic farms. We want to reflect a new way of thinking about food – a practice of sourcing that fuels the body and the soul.
***If you have food allergies/intolerances, this is your place!*** I am celiac, so I cannot have even the smallest bit of gluten. The store does serve bread, however it is kept in its own box at the register, so it’s not even on the prep line. They also cut it in its own area. The risk of cross contamination is nil. I loved that they have several allergen warnings as well as cross-contamination risks for each on the menu. Not only that, but the staff was VERY knowledgeable about allergies and proper protocol to keep diners safe. That really puts me at ease when eating at a restaurant. I had the tuna poke bowl and it was delicious! Portions were excellent, all of the ingredients were super fresh, and of course, it tasted amazing! The cranberry cayenne lemonade was so refreshing with just the tiniest bit of heat at the end; it will be my go-to drink! Fayetteville’s allergy community is so fortunate to have this place!
