They have a gluten free sub bun, they put it on foil when toasting the sub so it doesn’t touch the rack. Change gloves when asked. Took precautions to make sure there was as little cross contamination as possible. Still the possibility since it is not a gluten free restaurant. Had an amazing experience and the staff were so kind.

I’ve been coming here for six months now and they do an excellent job of making sure they clear the line and I don’t get sick. I have celiac disease and their gluten-free options from schar is great. As far as I can tell, the only sub that isn’t safe with the schar bun is that meatball sub. The only thing is often time to gluten-free bread runs out, so I always make sure to call ahead.

We don't have much trouble with cross contamination. The GF buns are fragile, fresh, and tasty. Lot of variety in the fillings. Barring delayed reaction, we will be back. We had the Italian and Engineer subs.

The sub was really delicious. My 1 star rating has nothing to do with the taste. They offer glutenfree sub from Schär. I watched them prepare and sadly it was definitily not contamination free although they tried. Used the same knife etc. So not for celiac!

No GF options here. They were out of GF bread which seems to be common based on previous reviews. Honestly was so dirty I wouldn’t have ordered anything if the did.
