    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.

    A 100% GF restaurant. This is some of the best gluten free food I have ever eaten! An extensive menu to choose from, but I had the smoked turkey and brie panini with a chai latte ... delicious!

    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.

    Some fabulous options, especially since they've updated their menus. The tuna didn't seem especially fresh the last time I had it, but the southwestern chicken panini is always delicious!

    We are listed under gluten free places to eat but not bakeries. We have a full dedicated gluten free bakery with tons of dairy free, vegan and paleo options! Thanks!

    Delicious gluten free food! Could have better service though. It's fairly slow most of the time. And the sandwich portions are too small. But the quinoa bowls are amazing!

    This place is fantastic! My 8 yr old has Celiac disease and everything on the menu is gluten free. No risk of cross contamination. The panini and white bean soup with kale was delicious. Even my non-gf family members loved it!

    I had a reuben, my wife had a chicken curry sandwich. Both were delicious. $20 for two sandwiches is a bit pricey, but that's par for the course I guess for local/organic/gf. Very casual with a nice laid back vibe. I'll come back.

    Everything is gluten free. Raw, vegan lemon bars were good. I was surprised by the ingredients. They use an avocado base, but you can't taste the avocado at all.

    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.

    Came here two years ago on vacation and had a great meal. Stopped again today and it was great again. Wish they'd open a shop in portland!

    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!

    All the bakery items are fabulous. You cannot go wrong. if they have the pear tart, get it- almond crust is to die for. Worth waiting for a sandwich or salad or call ahead to have it ready for youe lunch break.
