    Menu has gf items marked. Li told the waitress I had Celiacs and could not have gluten. She seemed to understand. Brought my soup with regular bread sitting on the edge. She was overloaded and seemed tired. She apologized, but given the understaffing, I decided to move on without taking the risk of contamination.

    No RANCH dressing? Outrageous! However, our food was hot , tasty and quickly served. GF on the run is important!

    June 28, 2018. My second review is for the chain at MSP, but this time in the main concorse near the entry to the E and C terminals. We ate off the main menu and sat in the bar. No GF beer. The restaurant has several GF options without any modification. No GF buns for a burger. I had a Cobb salad and was quite happy with the taste, portion, and service. I would eat at this location again, but maybe not the one in my second review (below). This is for the shop in the F terminal of MSP. It was highly recommended. Have GF bread. Good tasting food. Cross-contamination is an issue here. Easy to see it happening. at grill Hard to draw attention to it and stop them. New to Celiac diagnosis. Hopefully this won't be an issue.

    Was not a fan of the Mac and cheese. Salad was not great either.

    Very gf friendly. Bakery case had gf bagels, brownies and lemon bars. The menu for the sit down restaurant did not note gf items but the server said they had gf toast and was able to tell me which items were gf, which included standard brkfst items. Food was very good.

    asked if they had a gf menu, answer was a rude no. Asked if they had any options that could be gf, she said we could toast if they needed to. rude waitress!

    Not a huge GF menu, but I think it's the only GF offering in the entire MSP terminal 1 at the airport.

    My breakfast was good but there is no gluten free menu so you still have to ask all your standard questions. No gf waffles and pancakes as noted

    Incredible food! Ordered the quiche Lorraine, hash browns and gluten free toast. The quiche has a potato crust and was savory and delicious. I have celiac and felt totally safe here. Staff knowledgeable and accommodating. 10/10 would go again!

    Tons of GF options all clearly marked on the menu and the server was very knowledgeable of the menu. The food is all organic, fresh, and 100 percent delicious! The zen salad was phenomenal! So many different flavors that paired perfectly together. They also have GF pastries that actually taste good. I highly recommend this place.

    NOT Celiac friendly. Host rolled his eyes when we asked if they had a GF menu. Waitress was clueless. Manager said they don't prepare separately and suggested the Minneapolis location instead. Edit: Jonathan, do you work there? If so, your post says everything. I posted my review on an app for others looking for GF food as a warning. Why are you here? And no, my nose wasn't pointed in the air - why would I be proud or snobby to have a severely limited diet?

    Called to see what was available. The person who answered the phone had a attitude and said " it's not like we have a gluten free certified kitchen or anything." Being celiac I would say stay away. This is for the trendy gluten free people.

    Among the best breakfasts I've ever had. The GF corn and blueberry pancake was eons beyond the typical mass-market pancakes served elsewhere. The GF toast was a honey multi seed bread, and they knew to serve it without butter (to avoid CC) without my even asking. Even a homemade GF Mac and cheese on the kids menu...my daughter was in heaven! We'll be dreaming of this place from now on. Also, we were too full for the bakery case, but I counted 19 GF options, including some beautiful cakes.

    They are very knowledgeable about what you can and cannot have. Also everything is clearly marked on the menu. There is a fair number of GF options.

    Sorry celiacs this location isn't for you, they make GF and regular flour dishes in the same kitchen! Crazy right? I mean who would dedicate an entire space in their kitchen for 1% of their customers. If they rolled their eyes at you it's probably because you started out with your nose pointed towards the ceiling when you asked for the gluten free menu.

    Good gluten free cajun hashbrowns. The bakery selection is good. The poppyseed muffin I had was okay, but definitely gluten free tasting. Chai tea was nice. I will come back again to try more.
