    All dressings are GF. Now offer GF toast (Udi’s) in place of regular toast. I got the potatoes with eggs and avo mash with a side of GF bread. Not sick after!!

    I was very disappointed with the service and menu here. They recently changed menu items & when I came in with my family for Sunday brunch I was told I needed to get on-line to look up the menu - never offered to print it for me so I wouldn't need to search the web - when my phone wouldn't view the full site and I couldn't see my options they did print me a menu. The options are awful - all dressings contain Gluten as well as all condiments (mayo, ketchup. Etc). Talked to the manager and he was friendly but didn't like my complaint. After tying to read through the menu with me he do ally agreed it was very confusing. I told him this change was in the wrong direction and very frustrating & disappointing. Told him I will not be back until I see a more gluten free friendly menu. Also told him to check out Cap City's GF me and compare. Trying to help them out but think they were more on the defense than really listening.

    I ordered gluten free toast. When I took a bite I felt the effects immediately. When I inspected the toast I noticed it had black specks on it from another piece of toast that obviously wasn't from mine because it was barely cooked. When I told her she was like "well what do you want me to do about it?" I said tell your manager it's unsafe to cook gf toast in the same toaster as regular bread. She said "ok." When she came back she told me she told the manager about what happened and that I should have told her I had an allergy because some people order gf bread "just because." She didn't even offer to take it off my bill not 6o mention the food took 1 hour to come out!!! This was the worst experience i've ever had since I've been gf for 7 years.

    Not all First Watch are the same. This one was SO GREAT. My daughter has celiac. From the hostess to the server to the chef, they all came out and spoke with us. They made sure her omelet and avocado bread was safe from start to finish. Even told us they could not toast the Udi’s bread bc they don’t have a safe toasting method. Changed gloves and used separate cooking utensils. She did not get sick and her food was delicious.

    Staff always takes care to mark “GLUTEN ALLERGY” on the ticket and sometimes brings it out separately. Delicious omelettes and potatoes. I’ve never gotten sick and eat at this chain in many different cities.

    The staff was not understanding or considerate of gluten allergies. They mentioned that they were out of Udi’s bread and when my food was delivered there was regular wheat bread on the plate. After I mentioned this to the host and server they didn’t seem very concerned but then explained that they had the gluten free bread that they could see from where we are standing. So this was a very expensive breakfast for the risk. It seems cross contamination could be high.

    I would give this a higher rating had my server been a little more knowledgeable of what she was offering:/ I felt ok about ordering the pesto chicken quinoa bowl though because I didn’t have to substitute anything-it’s gluten free to begin with- so I ate it and it was delish! no after effects.

    I used to feel safe eating here. The waitress said, we have been instructed to say we cannot guarantee your food will really be gluten free. We make no guarantees, ok? I said, "No, not ok. I can actually get a safe gluten free meal at Waffle House. They take care of me there." Her attitude makes me want to call management and explain how to keep a darn kitchen safe and how to tell your servers to speak to people to reassure them even if you can't "guarantee." Be specific if you go and talk to the manager.

    Not a separate gf menu. I’ve eaten here 3 times without incident...just told the server I had a gluten allergy. They are unable to toast the bread for celiac (shared toaster), so I’d skip the bread as it’s typical dry, bland gf bread when not toasted. The juices are very good (recommend the kale) and the millionaires bacon is sweet with a hint of spice. It’s not your typical greasy diner...I’d definitely recommend for fresh options! No gf pancakes or anything, but that’s to be expected and a rare treat when you find it out.

    Although they have a disclaimer that they don’t have a dedicated GF kitchen space, they have Power Bowls that are GF, and Udi’s GF bread for toast. They have frittatas also, and many healthful options. I didn’t give them five stars because they should have a separate GF menu.

    I was so excited to eat here after all the positive comments from others. Our waiter was fantastic and even put mine and my sons order on a separate ticket clearly labeled with allergy. I know Celiac is not an allergy. However when our order came out with regular bread. The waitress that brought it out whisked it back to kitchen. It was back out wit Audi’s bread, but clearly the same omelette. I let our waiter know that it was not a safe practice for Celiacs. He apologized but no visit from the manager and still paying full price left a sour taste in my mouth. I hope we don’t get sick. 😢

    Does not have a separate gluten free menu, but our server Trisha was GF and sat down and went over every item on the menu that is gluten free. She said all of their ingredients are all contained separately to prevent cross contamination. They have a separate toaster for GF bread. Any egg dishes/omelettes/frittata on the menu can be made GF simply by not ordering the English muffin that normal comes with. She also said everyone is very cautious when it comes to food allergies and will wash hands, change gloves, clean equipment, etc. I was super impressed and Trisha was an amazing server!
