Decent brunch food. Whenever I mention gluten free they know what I'm talking about and seem to be careful. I feel a bit rushed though, they usually give us the check before we're halfway done with the food.

Wonderful food, great service, and no problems accommodating dietary needs. Tip: Don’t eat the GF bread if you’re celiac, as it’s toasted alongside the regular bread. Other than that, this is a very Celiac friendly place to eat!

Bacado omelet was amazing! Offered to change gloves after handling gluten. Wish they had gluten free bread, muffins, pancakes or waffles. Most eggs, breakfast meats, and bacon were all gluten free

Probably a lot of cross contact here, but they do have gluten free bread so I was able to get a breakfast sandwich and home fries. The food was flavorful, the staff were efficient and the prices were fair.

We had a lovely lunch this afternoon. Deborah was absolutely wonderful and extremely accommodating to my various allergies. She went above and beyond to make sure my food was safe. They have good procedures against cross contamination. It was also delicious and very affordable.

I usually get the chicken quinoa power bowl here. I have not gotten sick and I always tell the server that I have a gluten allergy. I have heard that they do use shared equipment when toasting the gluten free bread so if you’re sensitive I’d stick with the bowls.
