    The menu isn't clear, but order the gluten-free crepes, not the buckwheat crepes. The batters are different, and they don't try to make the buckwheat crepes GF. They do clean the griddles before cooking GF crepes. Everything I've had here has been excellent.

    Not recommended for Celiacs or people with an allergy. Crepes are delicious and I really wish they would be more careful. I ate there twice but got sick the second time. I think the chef used the same spatula on my GF crepe as on the regular one he was making the same time. Also, I don't think the griddles can be thoroughly cleaned. Sorry Crepes de Luxe, I don't recommend you.

    Multiple reviews say it's gluten free and celiac friendly. But griddle used is same which clearly cross contamination. Tested it with Nima gluten sensor and showed low gluten. My advice would be to avoid this place for people with celiac disease.

    Delicious crepes. Excellent gluten free batter. They cleaned the griddle and changed utensils and gloves which is important for true celiac (we just deal with gluten sensitivity).

    It was easy to eat gluten free here. It is wise to call ahead if you are planning to eat GF here, as it does take some time to prepare for it, but I wouldn't say it took more than 10 or 15 minutes total. Very tasty and safe.

    Absolutely delicious! It is a challenge to find GF crepes but this place has it down! You can watch your food being made and the chef cleans the entire working surface before making GF crepes and doesn't cook wheat crepes right next to yours.

    We had a fabulous birthday dinner here for my wife. The café is intimate and warm. The chef and his server we're inviting as we arrived. They were more than accommodating when we asked for gluten-free crepes and they were fabulous, both savory and sweet. I can't not highly recommend this out of the way jewel!

    We so enjoyed delicious healthy crepes! We watched as they were made :D The owner is very conscious of gluten allergies and cross contamination! He made the crepes into a piece of art!

    Really great food! We were just there and the owner told us that if you're wanting a gf crepe, it's best to call ahead and let them know. They have to make the batter and it's best if it sits out an hour or so. The creeps are so wonderful!
