My boyfriend and I were visiting Portland for the weekend and he googled this dessert restaurant on a whim. We made it in before they closed and I’m not usually someone who would just go on a whim to a location having celiac. I was pleasantly surprised that there were two menu items and sorbet/ice cream available that would accommodate my needs. I had the goat cheese cheesecake with brown butter crumble that was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend non-gluten-free had some kind of chocolate layer cake with caramel popcorn on the plate for garnish. They also had alcoholic beverages though I didn’t look at the list much because it was late and I was not in the mood for another drink that night. I don’t recall what the other dessert that was gluten-free was. When the runner brings your dessert to the table they break down every component of your desert which was interesting. Nothing was marked on the menu but server was knowledgeable about gf options. Great find and hope to visit again in the future.
