I mentioned a gluten and dairy intolerance to the maitre d. She told the server. He brought out dairy free creamer, suggested gluten free toast, and asked if the toaster needed to be cleaned out before mine got toasted.

Very allergen friendly!

The menu identifies items that are "GF-friendly". I ordered the traditional breakfast (that's what the menu calls it) with ham and replaced the bread with GF bread for an extra dollar. I've eaten here four times now and never had a problem. Our waitress seemed knowledgeable about GF concerns.

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.
