    Gluten-free crepes and bread for their breakfast sandwiches. I ordered a breakfast sandwich on their gluten-free English muffins. They asked about my cross-contamination preference when I ordered, so I was assured they we're cooking on a clean surface.

    I would not recommend this place. Service was terrible and the gf bread is awful.

    They take every precaution possible with regards to cross contamination. I had a turkey and mozzarella sandwich with their gluten free bread and it was delicious. Went back the next day for lunch again during my 4 day stay in Salem. Highly recommend.

    Great food and good atmosphere. They do tell you that they don't use a dedicate surface for cooking but they do clean the surface after each use. They are very upfront and helpful. They have a lot of options for gluten free breakfast.

    Not very celiac friendly. The crepes are advertised as gf but they use the same press as other food items with gluten. Plus their gf wraps suck

    The place is very cool. I just have a wheat sensitivity, so I didn't have any issues with my breakfast crepe. It was awesome. The coffee was great. It's a cool location. They also have a full bar there too, so it's not just for breakfast.

    Amazing food, great helpful staff. They offer "glutenless" because of cross contamination that could happen. Will eat here again, had the crepes and wow.

    Delicious gf crepe with mushrooms, red pepper and goat cheese. Also really liked the strong iced coffee- didn't get watered down with ice. Not sure if cc is an issue with the crepes, but no problems yet!

    No more gluten free pies 😿! The gluten free creeps are not prepared in a safe way to prevent cross contamination.

    Happy gluten free wraps! Updated to say that they changed the wrap, and it's much better now. The old ones could be hard/chewy, but the new one is excellent!

    Great gluten/dairy free option. The GF wraps they use are Maria and Ricardo GF tortillas. I usually end up ditching the wrap/bread as most are terrible, but these were excellent. And it was all wrapped around the best chicken salad I've ever had. My husband and both kids (non-GF) all loved their meals and said they wished we lived closer to come back. The dairy free smoothies were awesome. The only disappointment was the chai. Oh well, can't win them all.

    I don't mind the chaotic atmosphere others have mentioned. It's all part of their charm. Bottom line is, in terms of GF, they get it, and there are lots of options. And I'm thankful

    we waited for a table even though there were tables available. we sat down and before we ordered anything at all the hostess told us there was a food wait of 40 minutes. We decided we'd have drinks but they didn't have a full bar. Ordered coffee but it was cold after waiting for the waitress to bring sugar. The only up side was the waitress knew what gluten free meant.
