This place used to have a dedicated kitchen- now they do not and I have personally seen them cross contaminate my food several times. They have had a lot of change in staff and are just not that safe anymore- 2 of my kids got glutenned there. If you have dairy or egg allergies the pickings are slim- they gave up all their good vegan options when they pre-prepared everything.

Pretty good! Not everything is Gluten Free, so read labels and ask. Very accommodating, but we've had errors in orders before (also dairy free). Might have changed, but it seems they had a lot of turnover in baristas in the past, so knowledge doesn't necessarily ooze out of every employee.

Be sure to beware of crumbs on tables/chairs.

No longer 100% GF…they are serving wheat based flatbreads, etc. now so the kitchen is cross-contaminated.

Everything is gluten free. Interesting selection on menus; very pricey though. I’ve tried the burrito (yum!!), the grain bowl (ok) and the chicken salad sandwich (ok). Coffee great, but tea dangerously scalding hot.

If you have any other food allergies/sensitivities besides gluten DO NOT go here. The employee made me very uncomfortable for asking if items contained certain ingredients and NONE of the foods (even sandwiches) can have an ingredient omitted. My egg sandwich was disgusting, McDonald’s makes a better one. The tea drink we got only tasted like milk, and when we asked to have it remade they said “it’s just a subtle flavor”. Would not recommend.

Super great gluten free choices!! Tried the avocado toast and the cinnamon roll, both gluten free and both spectacular!! Gluten free bread was delicious, warm, and homemade. Overall wonderful experience, and didn’t get sick either!

So many options for good gf eats. It's a little pricey but I don't care because I can eat safely. The coffee and tea options are superb. Don't forget to get some chocolate for the ride home.

Cafe and food in the back, walk through the seating area visible from the confections in the front. Dedicated gluten free facility (minus a few beers). Food was delicious. Confections are pricey ($$) but the cafe ($) is a wonderful bargain! Really creative menu, one of best gf joints in the country.

Yummy!! All staff were super helpful and answered all of my questions. Gf peanut butter cup cookie was amazing! Blueberry cheese Danish was out of this world. Chocolate truffles and bark were divine! Went with the kids for treats, but will be back for wine/cheese/chocola

I had the cheesecake with strawberry whiskey sauce topping. It was excellent! I was expecting a large slice, instead I received an entire cheesecake about 6 inches across! The salted caramel hot chocolate was wonderful as well.
