I came to first watch for breakfast while visiting Tempe. The staff was highly knowledgeable about gf and celiac. I ordered the farmhouse hash and asked for to sub gf bread. They don’t upcharge for gf bread either! It was delish and pretty inexpensive as well. I asked the server for butter and he came back and told me that the butter uses shared utensils that come across gluten and asked if i still wanted it, which i did not lol. This just shows how highly cautious they are and most places wouldn’t even think about cross contamination in the butter. 10/10 would recommend and i did not get a reaction.

GREAT!!!!! Went for brunch and told the waitor I had celiac and he reassured me that they take all of the safety precautions to not cross contaminate and cook GF food separately. I got the healthy turkey omlette with breakfast potatoes, gf toast (with butter and jam) and a fruit cup. To drink I had a morning meditation. Everything was delicious, I am so happy they were so knowledgeable and cautious!!!

My server verified if gluten free was a preference or not and I specified Celiac and she made sure to toast my gf bread in a gf dedicated toaster
