After seeing some reviews about potential cross-contamination, we called to ask about their gluten free food prep. We learned that they don't have any, that the gluten free crepes are prepped and cooked on the same surfaces as the food containing gluten. When my husband pointed out that this could make people with gluten intolerance sick, he was told that they are "gluten free, not celiac free." I assume she meant celiac friendly, but either way it doesn't seem like a good option.

If you ask, they may be able to wash the pan. I'm not celiac, but highly sensitive and have never been sick.

I wasn't able to eat there because I called to check and it is a shared cooking surface.

Delicious buckwheat crepes! Very knowledgeable staff. I am not celiac but stein sensitivity and I had no issues. Highly recommend. Agree, a little pricey but cute restaurant and great food is always worth the price :)

Not safe for celiac. They use the same pan for both types of crepes, they only wipe the pan. Our server had no idea what I was taking about, the manager walked by and overheard me asking. I haven't been very sensitive lately, so I went for it. I'll leave another update if I have a reaction. It was delicious!

Best gluten free crepes ever! Tastes just like ones we had in Paris!

Perhaps it was a new waiter, but one of the staff members said something that directly contradicted what another said. I'm happy to say that I did not get sick and the food was very good. You need to ask for any of the sweet crepes to made with the buckwheat flour, and the gentleman who helped me said he wasn't entirely sure the sausage was safe. Still a great place to eat. I'm not sure celiacs would be completely safe if they talk to the wrong person.

really enjoyed eating at Fontaine. My girlfriend has celiac, she ate some of the french fries and had no after effects as all. Felt celiac friendly Will definitely go there again.

Just to clarify, not all of the crepes are gluten free. The desert crepes are NOT gluten free, but the others are. Overall a nice little caffe with solid food.

The entire menu is basically gluten free when you have the crepes made with buckwheat flour. Delicious and really cute atmosphere
