Highly recommend! They have a separate prep area for gf food, separate waffle iron, and amazing FRIED CHICKEN! I have celiac and I've become a bit of a regular here because their food has never made me sick and it's so delicious! Just watch out for the waffle samples because they're gluten and I almost missed that. They're also tipless, which means their prices are a little higher, but it's because they provide better wages for staff.

Tested negative for gluten in the Nima sensor. They use a dedicated iron for gf waffles and clean surfaces and pans before making eggs.

Got glutened:(

After telling the waiter about my allergy and to please make a special note on the order (which he did), I still got sick. Ordered the vegetarian breakfast sandwich w/ “gf” waffle option. Another waiter dropped off my food and specifically said “gluten free and vegan waffle breakfast sandwich”.

Looks like their vegetarian option is actually a vegan meat patty which I’m guessing is what contained the gluten. Really disappointed especially after the servers appeared to be knowledgeable about their gf items.

Loved the chicken and waffles here! Staff is very knowledgeable about celiac and takes many precautions to limit cross contamination risk. Staff was also super friendly and gave recommendations for other restaurants that could accommodate GF well. Food was excellent, chicken was very moist. I did not have any Celiac reaction. So glad we made the effort to go there even though we were staying downtown. Well worth it!

We had a wonderful breakfast and were very pleased with the attention to making my meal safe. Charlene happily explain their protocols for avoiding cross contamination and acknowledged that as hard as they try they do have wheat in the kitchen and can’t guarantee that food is absolutely gluten free. Their fryer is dedicated gf and the waffle irons for gf waffles are dedicated.

It's good when it is, but that's rare. They need to work on that service they always charge extra for ("tipless"). Can't follow instructions, not enough phone lines or servers during "shelter in place", terrible parking when typical traffic included, etc...

Great menu options, good food, knowledgeable staff. Many of the things on the menu not listed as GF can be made GF by subbing the toast out with a mini GF waffle.

I buy dinner waffles for my daughter with Celiac and she loves them. Her favorite is the chicken and waffles. And as an added bonus you can buy their GF waffle mix for at home!
