    Heated our daughter's food for her, but everything is cross contamination

    Food was good. Service ok. Pretty disappointing that you have to pay to add things to the waffle. Literally comes on a plate by itself!

    No dedicated Gluten Free Menu: only gluten free pancakes, waffles, bread and tuna. Pretty sure I got Pretty sure I got sick from cross contamination as well.

    Gluten free menu listed whole wheat tortilla in one item and my salad was served with croutons after explaining that I am celiac. Waiter did not seem informed about celiac/gluten at all.

    Nice variety on the gluten-free section of the regular menu. Had an excellent Caesar kale salad with roast turkey, minus croutons. Good service and a cheerful, diner-like atmosphere. Breakfast served all day.

    If you're celiac, eat things that are naturally GF. There's cross contamination with the bread/toast, etc.

    The food was delicious. The restaurant was very busy. Stick to the GF menu & make sure to tell your waiter your needs. They do not have dedicated friers, so avoid fries, home fries, & other fried items. They clean the grill for GF but it's a busy restaurant & it is a shared kitchen. The avocado toast & the tuna melt were both delicious.

    Gf pancakes, Udis bread and more. Safe, but you do need to be specific. (Recommend the BLT and chocolate milkshake!!)

    The food is always good. Definitely a local hangout for the neighborhood. They serve cocktails and have great options for gluten free!

    Several gluten free options (Udi's bread sandwiches, salads, pancakes, waffles) Went here for a late lunch and decided on pancakes. I ordered with chocolate chips. They are only able to put chips on top and not in the batter. The portion was pretty big...Three large pancakes. The taste was decent with a bit of a cinnamon flavor. It is also a little pricey (why I took off stars).Will likely return! Side note: Pancakes are a good choice anytime of day😊

    Not coming back! I let the server know I was GF and asked if there were any soups available that were GF. 3 people around who worked there all gave the same options. The food was good till I had my apparent GF french onion soup. I started eating the soup and long behold... Bread was all in it underneath the cheese. I've had a stomach issue all night. They did offer to bring me a new soup and took it off my bill- but the fact that I told them to begin with and had a solid conversation about it and still got it wrong? I wouldn't trust them making my dishes again, so I declined. I also have veggie allergies and had let them know what I couldn't have for my salad- there was a veggie left in my salad that I can't have and I had to pick out. Not impressed at all about the carelessness of a customers food allergies!!

    Udi's bread available, so they can make sandwiches and toast (and things like eggs that are naturally GF). My daughter ordered a hamburger on the GF toast. No dedicated fryer, but the waitress brought out a plate of pickles instead. Crowded and kind of noisy, but food was very good. A little expensive, but large portions. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but a nice deli option if you're in the area. Daughter is fairly sensitive and no bad reactions.
