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.
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!
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.
