Excellent for folks who are gluten sensitive - but they are gluten friendly, not celiac friendly. Bread goes through the same toaster as regular bread. Waitress was great about letting me know.

I ordered an omelette off the GF menu with seasoned potatoes. The omelette was huge and after I ate it I commented that there must be a lot of eggs in there. The waitress said she only thought there may be 2-3 eggs. I wondered what else could have made them so fluffy? My stomach later told me that they may have used done kind of flour. I suffered for a few days. Beware!!!!

So I saw on this app it leads to believe this restaurant uses Pamela's Gluten Free Baking Mix, thinking they would have gf pancakes or waffles. So I went and asked for the gf menu, but all I got was one of those allergy menus where you have to look at the "wheat" section and see which is safe. Only a handful of items stated there was no wheat, and they were just side items. Nothing mentioned of pancakes or waffles. I just ordered bacon, eggs, and potatoes. It was good but I was disappointed in the very little options for gf, especially with no pancakes or waffles. And I'm not sure how their strictness is on cross contamination, so I'm giving it a "No" for celiac friendly.

Actually this restaurant has no clue what GF means. There is no GF menu. They have an allergens list that accompanies the menu but anyone expecting any GF special offerings is mistaken. Sorry.

Although First Watch offers a "GLUTEN FREE MENU" they really don't have much to choose from. Example; one can order the Eggs Benedict yet it is not served with gluten free english muffin. In fact it is not served an english muffin at all. Oh forget about the hollandaise sauce (it has gluten) their for it is not served with any sauce. WHAT'S THE POINT IN ADVERTISING A GLUTEN FREE MNEU. I find this to be deceiving and insulting when they could very well have gluten free flour to make english muffins and to add to the hollandaise sauce. Oh did I mention you can order gluten free pancakes with out the pancakes. You get a plate of syrup.

On the daily special's menu they did have a delicious Quinua with tomato, kale, and a yummy pesto sauce.

Just ask for the GF menu - they have a separate one that has many options and is quite detailed! Wonderful, friendly, attentive and accommodating staff. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. Delicious food! (Though it does get very busy, especially on weekends..but the wait is never very long) We love this location and always have a great experience here.

We went here for lunch. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I had a skillet and iced coffee with no issues. They offer GF toast but use a common toaster so it would be contaminated so I skipped the toast. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxing. While there is not a gluten-free menu, you can find on line an allergen list for items I felt that they were very careful. I highly recommend it.

While gluten free bread is available, they only have one toaster. Chef and wait staff is very knowledgeable, and will give you a menu that details all the major allergens in their dishes.

While the food was great and I did not get sick(I have a severe allergy not celiac) the waitress was AWFUL. She finally came to our table after 30 minutes of waiting, when I said I was gluten free she asked how severe because of the possibility of cross contamination. She. The food was brought out she grabbed the bread off of my plate saying it was the wrong bread and she’d bring out the gluten free. I asked her to bring a fresh plate because there were crumbs all over my food and she proceeded to argue with me that it was just the seasoning.. worst experience I’ve had so far. I’ve heard so many good good things about this place but the waitress ruined my experience.
