The only non GF thing here is a separate box with bread that you only get asked about at the end of the line.
Loved the food, have eaten there twice in the last two weeks. They were awesome about my meal and not serving bread near it. Can't wait to go again! I am Celiac.
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.
Love that this place has almost 100% gluten-free options. Delicious!
Amazing. Very careful and lots of options!
awesome food. 99.9% gluten free and no cross contamination. will definitely be back
Everything in the kitchen is gluten free. They do offer bread that is not gluten free, but it stays separate from the line, so cross contamination is not an issue. They have a lot of healthy options here. All employees are well trained to handle all allergies. Overall very impressed. Great food with unique options.
Don't risk this place. Go elsewhere. Great place to pick up a dose of food poisoning. Allergen protocols look good till the manager cross contaminated my bowl. Big fail
I eat here a couple times a month. They clearly label allergens and possible cross contamination for each meal. The only gluten in the entire restaurant is a bread box they keep separate by the register. There are a ton of options and the meals taste great.
Great healthy and refreshing food that is 100% gluten free other than the optional bread they have at the register.
Rice, grain, and salad bowls galore. Great selection and the ability to make your own. The employees were super helpful. In the ordering area, there is a sign asking guests to identify themselves and their allergies. I identified myself as gluten- & corn-free. Two employees immediately changed their gloves and asked what else they could do to make me more comfortable/meet my needs. Great, clean food, customer service, and experience!
Everything is naturally GF except the bread which is at the end of the line. All servers understand allergies.
Clean, fresh, healthy ingredients. Availability to create your own dishes if something on the menu does not agree with your lifestyle.
Everything is gluten free except a box of bread that they keep in a separate area from where they create the bowls, etc. I have never been cross contaminated and have eaten here at least 10 times! I love the bbq ranch chicken and the Mediterranean Salad bowl.
Everything is gluten free on the main line. They have bread in a separate area that doesn't come into contact with the other ingredients, by design. Lots of fresh ingredients, unique and complex flavors, and many options... salads, broth bowls, protein bowls.
The staff is very helpful and aware. They assured me everything on the menu, except the bread, is GF. Only the cashier handles the bread. The manager washed hands, changed gloves and stayed with my bowl through the line. No reactions! Definitely will be back. 2019 update: I regularly order to go through the app (this is the only place I feel safe doing so). Never been sick! Awesome manager and friendly staff!!
Literally everything in the restaurant is gluten free (aside from the pieces of bread they offer at the very end, and they are kept very separate from the rest of the food). Tons of options, and food is healthful. Staff is very knowledgeable about gluten and other allergens
Wonderful concept, wonderful fresh food with attention to quality and taste. As a physician who preaches food as medicine, I’m thrilled to have this available. Stays true to Michael Pollan’s motto: eat food, mostly plants, not too much. And of course safely gluten free. And delicious!
Everything on the menu is GF minus the bread they keep in a separate box by the register! I’ve eaten here weekly since they opened and I haven’t gotten sick once! Also love it for allergy folks...they even have epipens at the register if an emergency arises!
I love that everything served here is gluten-free, so there is no risk of getting sick! The exception would be the bread, but this is all the way at the end of the line away from the other food, and in its own box. I always state that I have Celiac ahead of time, but I am always informed that everything is GF. The food is so fresh and delicious. A great, quick and healthy option for Celiacs.
Everything here is gluten free, except for bread that they sell on the other side of the food preparation area. It is set up like Subway where you order an item and customize it. I ordered a salad and it was great! Would definitely recommend this place for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Felt very safe eating here!
I love this place. It’s very celiac friendly and the service is amazing. The staff are very kind and I recommend the Spicy Thai Chicken and Rice Noodle. The only gluten item they have there is the optional bread. They have tofu if you don’t eat meat, and it’s a very healthy restaurant.
The entire menu offering is gluten free with the exception of the closed bread box at the register. They have a kids gluten free plate with veggies, chicken and rice, GF chicken noodle (rice noodle) soup and kid’s spaghetti (rice noodles) with chicken. My celiac son is a healthy eater and loves all the choices. I really enjoy the salad, soup, broth, bowls too!
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!
