They are horrible now. Twice now I’ve ordered salads off the GF menu. Twice now they came with fried goat cheese in panko. The first time it was carry out and I didn’t notice until I got back to my office and when I called they argued with me about it. Second time was dine in and they made me a new one but they literally have no clue anymore. They used ti be great but don’t go here if you have celiac or an allergy.

Holy cow! Amazing. Separate menu. Honestly I love small menus because it means they do what they do WELL. I felt so comfortable eating here. Will definitely come back. Autumn was our server and we met the owner Mandy. Autumn was so attentive. Honestly it was great.

Tell them you’re GF when making reservation. Menu choices were hand marked for me upon arrival.

Overall good food but salmon was too salty. Smashed potatoes were wonderful.

My husband (who does not need to eat gluten free) and I had AMAZING meals and experience at this cafe. Due to Covid, they had a limited menu. But they still helped us order gluten free options. I had the salmon with the blueberry compote which was amazing. My husband ordered seafood mac and cheese just so that I could have some. You would not have guessed it was gluten free. It was just amazing! Would go back again!!

My wife ordered from their separate gluten free menu. The waitress came back out and said they recently changed the ingredients on that item and could no longer guarantee it was GF. My wife was fine with that and ordered something else. All the food was great. Highly recommend.

Nice gluten free menu. Safe for Celiac, they get it. Would be great if they had a gluten free dessert besides ice cream.

Fabulous restaurant with a very attentive and knowledgeable staff. The food was excellent with a great selection of high-end items on the gluten-free menu. The historic house was very interesting with a lot of original features and they let you tour around. We felt very comfortable after talking to them and trusted them completely to prepare a delicious meal for my very sensitive celiac son.

They totally revamped their gf menu and with amazing success. I do wish they could expand their dessert menu to include a good gf option. Even if it was a flour less chocolate cake.
