    I have been getting more and more sensitive so I haven't eaten out in awhile. I used to really like Fig Tree and would eat here often without issue. came here for lunch and got an omelette. talked to the server and told him I had an "allergy". He was very helpful and said the potatoes were cross contaminated but that I could switch out the potatoes for fruit. When my meal came there were potatoes on my plate and it was a different server. I double checked that the potatoes were not GF. they took my plate back and removed the potatoes but brought the same plate back out. I could still see the crumbs left behind from where the potatoes had been. I tried to avoid that part of the plate and ate my omelette and fruit. Started feeling sick a few hours later. I suspect that they just aren't very careful with cc.

    Pricey and the food is utterly tasteless and overall poorly made.

    Staff very knowledgeable and cooked everything separate. GF french toast had its own separate GF batter....similar sounding named restaurant advised on phone that the batter was shared....but this place did indeed have separate GF batter

    Had the cinnamon raisin French toast as the server said that they had separate batter for GF toast. Really good.

    It was really crowded the day we went but the food wasn't that great and I didn't feel like they took having Celiac Disease seriously enough. I felt sick after going too.

    Loved this restaurant! So many GF options. The bread was so good. Knowledgable staff, too. I'm also dairy free and server knew which condiments had dairy ingredients.

    OMG!! So good! There are so many GF options that my brain went on strike trying to decide. My girls had the stuffed French toast. I had the fig tree pizza. My husband had the salmon omelet. All was phenomenal. Wish they had one of these in my home city!

    They offer gf items, but are not truely gluten free. They use the same batter as regular bread for glutem free french toast. Pizza is made on the same pan/oven as regular pizza. Horrible experience as a Celiac.

    Great service. Can't have potatoes but they substituted with fruit. Had breakfast and had no bad reaction.

    Everything is clearly labelled on the menu, there are even a handful of GF drink options. Ordered the red grape salad, it was light, refreshing and very good.

    We went there for breakfast. I had their shrimp egg frittata. It was good. We also got an order of the GF stuffed french toast to share. It was really good. My husband isn't GF free and he thought it tasted pretty good.

    Fig Tree Cafe is great! The restaurant has a nice vibe and the food is delicious. We went during brunch and had a tasty omelet with perfectly cooked potatoes and fresh fruit. They use humanely-raised eggs from a family farm in Ramona. They also have GF pizza which we did not try but it looked really good. For libations we tried their "Blackberry Bliss" cocktail which was incredible. It was made with muddled blackberries and mint. I highly recommend Fig Tree!
