They don’t have a separate menu or GF items marked, but they did have an allergen list that was provided to me. It was super helpful. They also have gluten free bread option, which was tasty!

I am celiac and the waitstaff have always been very helpful and conscientious of my allergy. I always forgo bread but if you do, make sure they are not using a common toaster. I know that happens at some places. Always had a safe breakfast here.

I came here for breakfast and the service was wonderful. The server was very accommodating with my gluten free diet as I have celiac disease. He noticed that they made Whole Grain Toast when I wanted the Udi’s Gluten Free Toast. We have them recook everything else so I would not get sick.

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.
