They no longer serve hamburgers- just an FYI. But is a very safe place for someone that is celiac.

Always can count on their delicious gluten free pancakes with bacon & eggs. Their black currant ice tea is a favorite!

Really like coming here. They have a separate gf menu and the gf food comes out on a different color plate. Cinnamon rolls are really good :)

I order from here regularly and am sensitive to cross-contamination. Generally they do a great job and I do not get tooo much cross-contamination, but it does happen sometimes.

My teenage son, a celiac, goes here for breakfast sometimes before school. Good food and has never had a reaction.

Firstly, they have an interactive menu online where you can filter out allergens and see what is safe for you on the menu. Secondly, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. I am dairy free as well and the only milk alternative was oat milk, which I questioned if it would be gluten free. He willingly offered on his own to bring it to the table so I could see he carton. When I thanked him he said “of course, this is your health we’re talking about!” He also double checked there was no dairy in the potatoes. I’m extremely sensitive to gluten. I had the chicken chilaquiles and an oat milk latte and I had no reactions.

Amazing menu. Have been to this restaurant so many times, never gotten sick. There is a separate place for gluten free food, and they even have separate plates, completely avoiding cross contamination. This place is amazing!

I have been there at least a dozen times, the servers have always been so nice about checking if items are gluten free for me even when they are busy(which is always). I've never gotten sick from their food. I would recommend trying the g free cinnamon roll!

In the corner of a nondescript building but inside is nicely done. Food was delicious. I got the avocado toast. My meal came all on green plates to indicate gf. The toast was a little stiff, but it was good. Bacon side was good, fruit was freshly cut and delicious. Eggs perfectly done. Wonderful meal. Server was not friendly and actually rolled his eyes at me when I said I needed a minute (I’m used to having only 1-3 choices, right?), but we’re going back tomorrow because I want to try the shakshuka and it’s our last day. I had no inkling of gluten and am a very sensitive celiac.

I have very severe celiac and I had no issue at all. My whole family thought it was delish. If you go make sure to pick up a gf cinnamon roll, the best I’ve ever had 😁

They have a large GF menu with breakfast and lunch items. The menu includes a disclaimer that they cannot guarantee no cross-contact because it’s not a dedicated gf kitchen.

I had the GF cinnamon roll breakfast with eggs, bacon, and potatoes. The cinnamon roll was amazing - moist, gooey, with cream cheese icing. The potatoes were “blah” - precooked and likely sitting in a hot tray. Eggs and bacon were tasty. I might go back just for another cinnamon roll.
