The staff took special care to mark food with a gluten allergy and avoid cross contamination. Salad portions were huge and I felt full after. Would come back here in a heartbeat.

Soo good. Although it’s not a GF facility, they do a good job of trying not to cross contaminate. Macaroni and coffee cake was great! A lot of options.

Went here for lunch looking for gluten-free options. Great salad choices (I had arugula with goat cheese,coconut, and strawberries) and my family had Thai cashew quinoa bowls. Both were delicious and gluten-free. Lots of other GF options on the menu too. Really cute vibe- very California. We will definitely return.

New fast casual restaurant. All of the desserts are gluten-free, and so is most of the food! When ordering they ask you if you have any allergies. I tried the GF mac & cheese, sweet potatoes, Japanese eggplant, and topped it off with a brownie & it was all delicious! I will definitely be back!

Cute restaurant with good food. Tell them you’re celiac and they will note it on your order to try to ensure safety.

The GF max and cheese is excellent! My 8 y/o was diagnosed with celiac 6 weeks ago. This is the first time he has eaten Mac and cheese while out. When we told the waitress he had celiac she marked it as a gluten allergy. It’s nice to be able to eat out and feel safe about it.

So glad that this downtown location exists! Lots of gluten-free options, including vegetarian and vegan. Make sure to tell your server about your allergies so they take the right precautions. Have eaten here several times without any issues.

The food is amazing and fairly healthy. I haven’t gotten sick here once. I’ve ordered everything from the salads to their bowls. Their gluten free chocolate chip cookie is one of the best I’ve ever had!
