This is my new favorite place! Fresh, delicious ingredients and I loved the bone broth! The beet lemonade and blueberry mint lemonade were excellent as well! Only thing with gluten is that they offer is a side of bread that can be ordered with a meal, it's kept at the end of the line in a box.
Love the variety and that all the dishes are GF. Interesting beverages too. Enjoyed the beet lemonade.
Wonderful service. It is nice to have options!
Great food and staff awesome.
awesome just like everyone else says! Just skip the side of bread.
Fabulous restaurant! Good clean food. Everything is gf except the bread. Highly recommend.
Everything is gluten free (except the bread at the very end!) Love it. I never get sick from this place.
Fast food never tasted so good. Everything is gluten free (except the slice of bread they offer you at the end.). I eat here several times a week.
Everything on the menu is gluten free! All healthy options! Green bowls, grain bowls, broths with tons of add-ins. They make their own lemonade in great flavors. They offer bread as an option at the register but it is not kept on the serving line near the other food. I always feel good after I eat here:)
***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!
Everything here is gluten free. Most things dairy free except for cheeses. Order from the predetermined menu or make your own bowl. They have green bowls, grain bowls or broth bowls (bone, chicken and vegetable). They also have rice bowls or plates with hummus, tofu or ahi tuna. They have grass fed steak and antibiotic free chicken as an option. Had the spicy chicken Thai bowl with rice noodles and it was excellent
Everything on the menu is gf which is amazing! I love their salmon power bowl and now make it at home. The reason why I give it a 4 instead of 5 is I found the soup and the kale Caesar to be bland. Also, once you order drink with your meal it’s a bit pricey. Lastly, pay attention to the calories. Some of the items “look” healthy, but by the time you add dressing you can be eating nearly 1,000 calories for one “healthy” meal! However I do like the fresh options.
When you inform them of an allergy the manager makes your food. They wash hands, change gloves, and the same person takes your food through the line. The only gluten present is the bread in a separate container at the end of the counter. And they have an allergen menu that clearly marks if anything may have been cross contaminated. I suggest the steak or Thai chicken bowl!
One of the few places I can eat easily and safely. They make their allergens clearly known and are happy to answer any questions. Avoid anything with the shoyu sauce, otherwise it’s all gluten free. They make their own broth on location the good old fashioned way. Choose from salad (green bowl), pasta or rice (grain bowl), or broth bowl. My kids love eating here.
Their website claims: "Menu is perfect for those eating vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and more." And I found it to be true for my family,. We have one gluten-free diner and one vegetarian, both of whom loved their meals at CoreLife Eatery. The beverages are fantastic as well! They do have one non gluten-free item, the bread at the end of the service line. However, it is self-contained and they SHOULD use the tongs in the container to get it for those who can eat it.
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.
Very knowledgeable - staff change their gloves. I took a tour of the kitchen and only gluten is in the bread which is in a large bin with its own self contained knife and cutting board. Been here twice with my sensitive celiac son with great success
CoreLife Eatery is an order-to-make cafe that is entirely gluten free. It is pure heaven for someone with Celiac Disease - the staff even changes their gloves without being asked. Options include rice, quinoa, rice pasta, broth, steak, chicken, falafel, etc. Very delicious and reasonably priced!
Food tastes great, staff friendly, 1 star rating is exclusively because of gluten contaminated restaurant/ingredients. I've been to CoreLife once. It was about two weeks ago and I was nervous about the bread at the end of the line but got in line anyway. Upon reaching the end of the line, with my order near the bread box an employee started removing bread from the box directly over my meal to fill a large takeout order being bagged at the pickup counter. So already I'm anxious, frustrated and can see this definitely isn't celiac safe. Then the employee handling the bread returns to the line without changing gloves and unconsciously places their hand on my bowl, with thumb inside of the bowl, to push/advance my order down the line. At this point I'm a ball of anxiety and tell the employee I no longer want the meal as it has been contaminated. They remade my meal, and everyone was professional and accommodating. But I'm upset and my dining experience is already negative. So I can't eat at CoreLife. It's simply not worth risking cross contamination. Even if I watch my meal prep carefully I may miss something or an employee could be contaminating the ingredients during prep when I'm not around to supervise. I appreciate business owners making an attempt to be gluten free and learning from and improving their processes but this idea of 99% gluten free simply isn't good enough for celiac diners. You must to be 100% gluten free or you are not. I know this is difficult for some to understand but it is the reality of the situation. So unless they remove all gluten I can't be a customer. Here are two potential ideas to solve this problem. 1. Go 100% gluten free. Use a gluten free bread, muffin or other gf item in place of wheat bread. I understand it's difficult to find gf breads the general public like so here is idea number 2. Bake, slice, and individually seal the sliced bread in a separate facility and bring it to the restaurant sealed. And to be extra safe store it away from the register/food prep areas.
The food tasted great and I really appreciated the ease or ordering. By having all the ingredients for all the dressings on the menu, I could easily pick out the one that didn't have any refined sugar in it. None of the drinks were free of sweeteners and/or preservatives, so that's a bust, but I usually just drink water when I eat out anyway. The only thing I had to ask about the ingredients in was the falafel. They didn't list the ingredients of their "premium" add-ons to a build-your-own-bowl. I appreciate the entirely gluten-free menu. It makes things a lot easier. The lighting was my only major complaint. It is so bright and unshielded that it makes looking at the person across from you a recipe for a headache.
Clean eating at its finest. They offer a variety of salads that are made assembly-line style right in front of you. All salads use natural, fresh ingredients and the menu is clearly marked for what has wheat, nuts, soy, etc. The only bread offered is at the end of the serving line, handled by one person with tongs, wearing gloves. The bread itself is kept in a hard plastic container and already sliced so any crumbs are self-contained. Your food completely bypasses this station if you don't want bread. I've eaten here a few times with no side effects whatsoever.
