There’s a traditional breakfast with eggs, bacon/sausage and potatoes. Gluten-free bread/toast is available too.

An allergen menu is available on their website, but GF items were not marked on the regular menu. Tons of omelets and frittatas available too.

So little food on their menu for gluten free needs. If you want you’re wanting more then eggs! And waitresses are rude and tend to give you an attitude if you discuss gluten free options.

The company that runs first watch will not provide gluten information at the restaurant. You have to look at their website to know what can be made gluten-free. This is a change in corporate policy (not this restaurant location's fault) and is moving backward from where the rest of the world is going.

Not a lot of gf options and the staff aren't very knowledgable; this used to be a favorite place of mine before getting diagnosed but now I am limited to only a couple dishes. It's a nice setting and a great option for a big family meal with lots of different preferences.

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!!!
