I have celiac disease and eat here weekly. I feel they generally handle it well here and the staff has enough training. I don't do the gluten free toast or bread because they don't have a dedicated gluten free toaster; they can put it on the griddle but I just prefer to not have it. I love the omelets and skillet hash bowls. There are also gluten free quinoa bowls. Look at the allergen guide. The maple syrup is not gluten free, nor is the chorizo.

Staff was very friendly about having to change to Gluten free options. Even though the allergen information says it's not Gluten free it's only because most dishes come with bread but is very easy to change to Gluten free bread. Menu says GF bread is Udi's.

They have lots of gluten free options plus gluten free toast. The only thing you’ll miss out on are the pancakes and waffles, but they have a great menu so it’s not a big deal. However, they don’t have a gluten free menu, but they might hand you a useless allergen list which pretty much says nothing is gluten free because most of the dishes come with bread which can be substituted for gluten free bread, so just ignore it and talk to the waitress instead.

I absolutely adore this place: the service is fantastic and I love their coffee! As a coeliac hailing from Melbourne, Australia, that's saying quite a bit! Staff are incredibly attentive and most items on the menu can be made gluten free with some substitutions or simple adjustments made to each dish. They highlight my orders in giant red marker just to make sure the kitchen staff get the memo. I've dined here twice with no issues thus far.

I have eaten here multiple times and haven't had an issue. I usually get a skillet bowl consisting of potatoes, onions, cheese, eggs and tomatoes. Very yummy. It is a bit expensive though but I usually only got every once in a while.

This is the first restaurant we went to after finding out my husband had celiac and we were very nervous. The server walked us through our options, which were plentiful, and was so very helpful. We are now regulars there and love it. hopefully they'll put together a gluten-free menu to make the experience easier for others.

No, there ISN'T a GF, just an allergen list... Which shows that everything on the menu but the potatoes, fruit and grits have wheat in them.

They do not have any true gluten-free options you just have to pick something that you know is safe. I’m also allergic to eggs so breakfast is a challenge. They do have gluten-free bread but they cannot toasted due to cross contamination.

Although not noted on the menu, many of the items can be made gluten free. They also have Udi's. I have been Celiac for 20 years and have not had any issues at this establishments location.

I've always had good experiences with First Watch at their 86th street location, however I cannot recommend the First Watch at the downtown location.

The server and kitchen staff did not understand what Celiac Disease was, and kept offering me vegetarian options with bread. They only had an allergy/nutrition sheet for their seasonal items, but didn't have one for their main menu. I ended up getting scrambled eggs, bacon, and a side of fruit. I had a little bit of issue with cross contamination.

Stopped in for breakfast and was told nothing was gluten free. Even the eggs are cooked with items containing wheat according to their workers.

If you have celiac disease do you not eat at this restaurant. They offer gluten free toast but after watching the toaster today while they were making my food they do not use a dedicated toaster for the gluten-free. There is a huge amount of contamination because the gluten-free toast is ran through same toaster at the same time with regular Bread on top of and to the side of the gluten-free bread. I did Talk to the waiter about how this was being prepared and she said she is voice this herself but does not see any change from management on this problem.
