Saw this on the app. Cute old school greasy spoon looking place. Lot of vegan and organic options. Got egg whites with GF toast. Was very good. No issues.

Enjoyed breakfast here. Was easy to grab a seat at the counter on a Saturday morning. Waiter was knowledgeable and explained my options. Pretty much most things have a gf version. Food comes out on different colored plate to signify allergy. Great food!

The waiter didn’t seem to understand the importance of no gluten. I am currently curled up in bed with a bad reaction because he was flippant about my allergy.

Amazing GF French toast. Served Red plate instead of white to differentiate.

I got the Kitchen Sink Omlette with gluten free toast. It came out on a red place to designate it was gluten free, and it was delicious! They also gave me a free bakery item for my birthday! I saw two GF options and I got the GF Almond Cheesecake

Had the French Dip on GF bun. It first came out with cross contaminated chips on the plate instead of fruit as I requested. But, when I sent it back they came out with the right order. The waitress was gluten knowledgeable.

The menu is clearly marked for gluten free and they have vegan options! I ordered the vegan Herbie on the gluten free BUN (bread is not vegan but BUN is). The pesto is amazing! Hashbrowns were also great.

Just had an amazing breakfast this morning. I usually stick to the tried and trues - eggs, hashbrowns and bacon/ham - though they had a wide assortment of pancakes, waffles, toast, etc. Menu not highlighted as most foods can be modified. Server was VERY knowledgeable. I felt confident ordering and the food was delicious. I'm very sensitive with no sign of cross contamination. Will eat here again before I leave the area.

Most things can be made gluten free, including waffles, pancakes, burgers, etc.. Shared fryer and prep stations, but they do a bunch to try to prevent cross contamination. My GF plate was red, waitress delivering food stated it was GF immediately upon serving, and the waitress was super helpful with the menu. That being said, she did say it was shared fryer and there was no GF only station, although they do all they can to prep the area before making the food. I had pancakes and chicken sausage and eggs. Very tasty. Should be safe if you can handle shared fryer GF. Waitress was amazing and I was confident in my food.

Even though other reviews say how the waffles aren’t safe I thought I’d be safe with just an omelet and hash browns, waitress was helpful but informed me that everything is at risk of cross contamination even the eggs because there is NO dedicated space, food was good but I got a little sick, if you’re super sensitive to any cross contamination like me I would probably go elsewhere

Ordered the gluten free waffles then the waitress noted that they only have one waffle maker and a whole table had ordered non-gf waffles before me. Not Celiac Safe!!

Not as great as the reviews make it out. Don’t eat the pancakes or waffles - they don’t have dedicated space to cook them. By the time I asked the questions to stay safe, I had a subpar salad. The coffee is awful - watery

I ate at Hen House Eatery with a friend, for the first time a couple of weeks ago and got glutened. By the end of the day, I had rashes, horrible stomache pains, bloating and other symptoms that still haven't gone away...nightmarish, for anyone who understands these symptoms.

I double-checked to make sure my pancakes were gluten-free. My suspicion and concern is that I was served non-gluten free pancakes intentionally or negligently and no one fessed up. Its saddening if that's the case.

I've been living gluten-free under my Gastroenterologist's orders for about 10 years, way before it was "popular" to be gluten-free. I take my health seriously, and we have to respect other people's dietary restrictions even if we can't relate to them. My review is strictly about my experience, but this is a nice restaurant in general...good food, nice ambience, family friendly.

Went for breakfast on a Saturday. Called ahead to make sure they had a gluten free menu and was told it was "in the menu". The host said the same thing upon arrival, but lo and behold, there was nothing marked gluten free in the menu. The server was pretty rude, no apology for the misunderstanding and told us all the gluten free items were "in his head". Not acceptable for my girlfriend, who has a lot of anxiety about trying new places. We will not return

Went for breakfast. Excellent service and great atmosphere. GF toast and pancakes available. GF pancakes were not very nice though- possibly a bad batch? Curious what others think of their pancakes because I'd like to visit again.
