I have a gluten allergy and I’ve eaten here several times without a problem. Everything on the menu is gluten free with the exception of the bread that they ask you if you want at the end.
every item on the menu is gluten free. fresh lively food. good vegetarian options and the gf kiddo loved his spicy chicken rice bowl.
The food is amazing yet both times I've eaten here, I've gotten ill afterwards. I'm staying clear.
Love it here! So yummy and you basically get two meals for the price cause the portions are so big!
Very celiac friendly. The only gluten they have in the restaurant is bread that is kept away from the other food in a closed container. I've eaten here many times and have never gotten sick.
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.
I have eaten at Core a few times over the past year without a problem, and we typically love it there! So I did give a couple stars. However, I was in this past Saturday with a friend and was very disappointed and embarrassed by the person at the register. I was careful in picking out salad ingredients and knew what I wanted, so I didn't want to make a big deal about cross contamination. While I will react, I'm not extremely sensitive, have been glutened, but it's rare. It was pretty busy, it typically takes a while to get through the line, and it was a busy Saturday. We get through the entire line to the register, I tell the woman I do not want bread, my friend with the broth bowl did. (She had a separate tray.) The cashier went to put the bread on my tray anyway, dropped the piece of bread directly on top my salad. I kind of wanted to cry. I said, that I couldn't have bread because I couldn't have gluten. She literally laughed, said "oops"! And picked up the piece of bread off my salad and put it ONTO my tray. I said again. "No bread please, I can't have gluten it makes me sick". She picked up the piece of bread and tossed it into the trash can with the tongs and handed us our change and our trays. I kind of stood there surprised and she said, "what, do you want me to have them make you a new one?" There were like 30 people in line behind us. I took my tray scraped the top half into the trash and said a prayer. Thankfully, I didn't get sick this time, and I rarely can finish an entire salad there, but I was pretty irritated and really embarrassed by her reaction and annoyed that I paid for half a salad that still could have made me sick so I'm not sure if I'll be back any time soon after that one.
