I was advised by their staff that theirs is a shared kitchen and not safe for celiacs.

My doctor suggested I go gluten free and I’m so happy that I live near such a great establishment. They don’t just have one or two options but a whole case full of gluten free baked goods. Scones muffins, cookies…even pies. Love it!

Delicious food. Not necessarily celiac safe - I got brain fog after eating their food that I think was related, but I'm particularly sensitive. Staff did a good job at explaining possible cross contamination, which I appreciated.

Fantastic options for baked goods! Had an amazing blueberry muffin AND with some many gf options, I might just go back today, it was really hard to decide! The other half of this muffin is STIlL delicious a day later- and you all know how rare that is!

Really good and about half the menu for options. They take good precautions but not exclusively gluten free. I have celiac and have eaten there twice so far without any trouble and have tried four different items.

The food has always been good. We've been going to Criminal for gluten free goodies since they were a tent at the Wednesday night market and tiny little place near Luther Burbank gardens. We even got our wedding cake from here. But the customer service is always terrible. I've never seen someone working the register that appeared to enjoy their job. I get that they're always busy, but smile a little, it really goes a long way. But today's experience definitely takes the cake. My 2 year old daughter who was so excited to pick something out touched the glass with one finger to show us what she wanted and the woman working the register said, "you need to get your kids hands off the glass, thanks" as if she was wiping off the names of all the items. Can find the same quality gluten free at Mad Hatter, Red Bird etc with much better customer service.

This food is SO GOOD. We got a sticky bun and frittata. Both were the best I've ever had (gf). The latte was also perfect. 5/5.

They have amazing looking and sounding GF sandwiches and treats - unless you can’t eat dairy and then you’re out of luck. There was one cookie option that we decided not to try so I can’t comment on the food’s quality.

The scones here are amazing. My family even felt that they’re comparable to regular scones.

Delicious GF scones and sandwiches! I haven't tried the other GF pastries yet (brownies, cookies, cupcakes, bars, etc.) but everything looks amazing. Super friendly staff. Can dine in or take out.

Ate at the Undercover Noshery for breakfast and got glutened. I got the baked eggs (which they list as gluten free on the menu). I didn't try their baked goods which people on Yelp seem really pleased with. Dine here with caution. On the plus side, they do serve almond milk.
