The cashier told me something different she told a friend of mine. A friend of mine was told, they gave two separated areas to prepare the gluten free and non gluten free items. I was told, they are prepared on the same area, but wiped off in between. I tried it regardless and did not get glutened. I tried the Nutella crepe and had a coffee. You get free refills for the coffee. I loved it there. Great ambience in addition to the food. There are also plugs to plug your laptop in. I will be back for certain.

The crepes are cooked on same griddle as non gluten free crepes-this is not GF for cross contamination! Verified this in person

I was at first impressed by Helena's options of Gluten-free crepes and macaroons.

I will no longer be doing business at Helena's due to an incident where they switched my order with my guest who ordered a regular crepe. I asked to make sure my crepe was gluten free and they said it was. After I ate half my crepe I had realized that our orders were switched and I became very upset as I realized I was going to become very sick. I talked to the manager who proceeded to tell me that they take allergies seriously but that I need to expect that these things can happen when I go to a restaurant with gluten and was confused why I wanted to speak with him. Helena's management does not ensure the safety of it's gluten free patrons and I would not recommend this establishment to others.
