    The restaurant totally understands celiac, they have gluten free breads and side options, breads are toasted in separate toaster or grilled on aluminum foil to avoid cross contamination. Great visit, great food.

    Great food (seriously: fantastic sandwiches), awesome desserts, and knowledgeable staff who avoid cross contamination and are clear about how they are keeping you safe.

    A real treat. Delicious bread for the sandwich. All the sides were GF; we had the French potato salad and house - made pickles. They were very tasty. We finished by sharing the pecan pie and banana cake. So good. We'll be back.

    One of my FAVOURITE places to eat in Richmond. Staff are knowledgeable and informed about gluten and contamination, and you can get almost anything on the menu with gluten free bread. The bread is great too - just as good as regular bread. Haven't had a dessert there yet (i'm always too full!) but amazing looking GF options which are made by a bakery also aware of contamination issues. Love love love. Perfect for brunch, lunch, picnics, dinner... It's super small but efficient so turnover is pretty quick.

    Staff very tuned to gluten issue. Fabulous date night (every night) options including bottle of wine. It is about salads, soups, sandwiches etc but you will love this small (seats about a dozen or fifteen at tables plus bar) Fan eatery. We go often mostly for dinner. Would give max rating but is not a full option (regular entrees) resturant.

    By far one of the best GF restaurants in RVA. A lot of delicious sandwiches and all of them can be chosen with gf bread. The bread they use isn't dried out or hard (like so many others can be). Most of their soups are gf and AMAZING, especially when paired with their sandwiches. Their gf desert options are even better. Their pies and cakes are delicious, moist, and vary from week to week. I've been going here for 3 years now and have not had any contamination problems nor have I been anything but thrilled by the food they offer. This is one of the top gf places to try in Richmond.

    Love this place! Huge variety of GF sandwiches, all gf sides AND the most delicious gf dessert I have ever had! Server very knowledgable and helpful. One note of caution: Garnett's is a small space (~7 tables plus bar). Be prepared to wait if you are going at a high traffic time.

    Very good sandwich shop! Gluten free bread and all salad dressings are gluten free! Especially enjoyed the fact that they have gluten free dessert options. I tried the Hummingbird Cake and was NOT disappointed! It was moist, flavorful and the cream cheese frosting was fluffy and not too sweet.
