This place is amazing, but it is an absolute staple as someone with Celiac disease. I am there at last once a week, often several times. The Paleo plate is my go to and they make a great tuna melt but the egg Sammy and caprese stack are really good too. My husband loves the veggie hummus sandwich. The peanut butter brownie and cinnamon roll are to die for and you wouldn't even know they are gluten free. Love!!
We had a great, safe lunch and I was able to take a piece of quiche and dessert back to the hotel for dinner too. It was busy for a Wednesday afternoon at lunch so the service was a bit slow and there was not enough places to sit. I don’t know if that’s the norm or not since we were traveling. Would definitely go back if I have the chance!
As a person who has dealt with severe Celiacs disease for over 58 years, I only eat at dedicated GF restruants-- and they are few and far between. Here I had smoked salmon salad with bread stick, minestrone soup with bread sticks and stocked up on a host of prepared yummy main dishes, quiche and desserts for recent vacation in town. It was fun to walk the locals come pouring in for their lunches and treats. Staff were all lovely. Thank you!
This place is amazing! My partner and I RARELY eat out because so many places miss the mark when it comes to celiac/quality of food. Well, this place nails it. We peaked around and they use TOP quality ingredients and we felt GREAT eating and afterword :) This place mirrors and tastes like our own kitchen, which is saying a lot, because my partner is a nutrition based chef! Love it! Keep up the great work Healthy Creations! With love from Tucson, Bryce & Kate.
This place used to be my go to breakfast spot. They changed the menu because it wasn’t convenient for them when customers come in a group of four. (That’s what the cashier said to me) now the food looks like for OCD people. For Encinitas location, I would recommend another place. Healthy creations waiting time is bad even when there is nobody in the restaurant. I regret not cooking at home and spend my money wisely.
This place is amazing! I had the Chicken Curry wrap and the Goji Berry Bliss smoothie. The food was so delicious! The staff was helpful and friendly. My sister, a gluten eater, actually preferred her meal here over any other during our vacation. We will definitely be back!
If you have additional dietary restrictions, don't bother with this place. They are not familiar with their own ingredients. They are not interested in helping you find what you can eat safely. We were the only ones there. The cashier/ server kept walking away and leaving instead of trying to help their only customer. We drove 1/2 hour out of our way while on vacation to eat here. Luckily I had a snack bar on me.
First off they are completely Gluten-Free! Yes the whole store lol. They have a newly remodeled organic, cafe/bakery/juice bar/ smoothies /retail/ full meal prep. Allergen friendly and the staff is extremely knowledgeable and informed, and what they don't know they will find out for you. Super Vegan/vegetarian friendly and they can even accomodate a paleo diet.
Everything on menu is gluten free and they can make most items dairy free if you need. I got the California wrap with veganaisse, husband got the veggie burger with vegan chipotle dressing (it normally has regular mayonnaise but they accomodated him with veganaisse) and our 9 yr. old got the chicken strips with focaccia toast. All delicious! They also have gf granola and various items for sale on shelf and refrigerator. They had YUMMY looking cookies with some being vegan. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There's a small sitting area. Great place!
