This is our 2nd visit. My boys are 11 and 8. Both celiac. 11yo got a patty melt on Udis bread grilled on parchment paper to keep safe from contamination. 8yo got a turkey sandwich on udis. I got the salad and chili, my son shared it, of course! Both loved their meal and did not get sick! Still think it’s a bit pricey but worth it to keep the boys safe. Waitress made sure to ask the cook about anything she was unsure of.
Some good gluten free options Had the chili and side salad. Cute place.
The waiter was very friendly and helpful. There were a lot of possible options on the menu- sandwiches on gf bread, soups, and salads with several gf salad dressing options. The staff seemed knowledgeable about keeping foods from cross contamination. We will be back!
Both the waitress and the owner/chef were extremely knowledgeable about celiacs, and that it is different than gluten intolerances, and took extra care to prevent cross contamination. I was the first customer of the day (8am) and they were able to make almost anything because the griddle was clean. The food was good and they are investing in a separate toaster for gf bread soon. I highly recommend this spot if you’re celiac and need some breakfast in Manchester!
Food was good. They only offer sandwiches when they are busy.
Anything you want on gluten-free bread!
Excellent gluten free chicken sandwich on Toasted Udis bread ! All 5 ladies loved their lunch. Multiple gluten free options and knowledgeable about cross contamination. Will definitely be coming back!
The place is very small inside and not the best decorated. Reminds me of a small old diner. We went for lunch. The waitress didn't know much about the menu or celiac. I think she may have been new, so I gave very specific instructions. There were 4 of us. My hubbs, myself and our 2 boys (ages 4 $ 7). The boys are Celiac. I went in 1st and asked about gluten free. I was told that they would use gloves and put parchment on the grill before cooking the boys food. We ordered a salad (gf with greens and a few veggies and I added grilled chicken. Got about 4 slices of chicken), a Ruben (not gf for my husband), and a gf grilled cheese sandwich for the boys to split. The sandwiches came with chips. For drinks we had 1water and 3 other drinks. The check was $42.00. So for 3 small meals it was $42. Pricey. The portions were not large but on the smaller side ( salad). But not many other options in the area so we went. Boys did not get sick after.
The Gourmet Deli & Cafe is the best thing that happened to me and my husband on our recent trip to Manchester! I have gluten sensitivity and lactose intolerance issues, and yet this tiny little cafe was able to make me the best gluten-free, lactose-free grilled cheese with a side of gluten-free potato chips. It was even an item on their menu - nothing special ordered! They used Udi's bread and Cabot cheddar (naturally lactose-free), and they grill their sandwiches with margarine (but I'm sure it's a shared grill). We went back every day during our vacation for my special sandwich, and we'll most definitely be back on our next trip to Vermont.
Very friendly and willing to substitute ingredients. Knowledgable staff. Many GF choices. Udi's bread. GF dressings, chili. Vegetarian option's.
