9/2019 Update: Back at ATL and thought I would give this place another chance. Terrible idea! I told them 3 times I have allergies to gluten and dairy, please make sure they change their gloves and prepare it on a clean area. I get my panini and there’s little pieces of shredded cheese on it. 😠 3/2019 Update: staff has changed and they’re not knowledgeable plus they’re rude! I asked for a GF panini and an acia berry smoothie. The cashier’s name tag was hidden under her apron but I asked for her name and she said something like Desmond or Diamond. She told me the smoothie wasn’t GF. I asked what ingredient wasn’t GF? She couldn’t answer and had someone from the back come up (who seemed annoyed with me for wanting to order from them). He said acia is GF and walked away. Don’t feel safe eating here anymore. 2018 Original Post: I always try to stop here when I’m flying through ATL. Best GF airport food I’ve found in years.
Staff seem confused and not educated on gluten free. Though gluten free wraps and bread are available they told me the filling of the paninis were not gluten free? But chicken and veggies and pesto should be... Seemed like there had been a recent staff change or menu change. They did make a salad to order with no croutons. The pineapple paradise smoothie was delicious.
In Atlanta Airport
I had a panini here for the first time in over 5 years. It was fabulous. They made my food safely. Best airport food I have ever had, even before I knew I had celiac. Correction!!!! I got severely glutened here and I barfed all over the T2, T3 area at the ATL! Please stay away from here if you are Celiac or gluten intolerant.
Awful customer service. We tried to ask the guy making the food details about their cross contamination etc and he literally yelled at us for “not trusting him” it’s hard enough for me to ask someone to accommodate me and take extra precautions and to get yelled at for trying to protect myself was really disappointing. I will never eat here again.
We stopped here on our way out of Atlanta because, while I do not have celiac, I do have a gluten sensitivity and lactose intolerance. They had at least two breakfast sandwich options that looked delicious. They claim to be very careful to avoid cross-contamination, even using a separate panini press though they were made in close proximity to where my husband's was being made. I did clarify that I don't have celiac, so maybe they didn't feel the need to be as careful. The sandwich that I had was delicious though my bread stuck to the paper and got a little messy. My husband enjoyed his regular sandwich as well. One guy even asked where we got them as he is in the airport once a month and hadn't seen any like it. Definitely hit the spot.
Gate C42's Fresh Healthy Cafe finally gives us gluten free food we're excited about at ATL! Smoothies are great and the gluten free wraps are amazing. They assured us they'd change gloves and prepare in separate area. My wife had no bad reaction! We couldn't even tell that the wrap was gluten free, awesome! Perfect safe eating while waiting at gate. So excited about this place!
