I am celiac and eat here all the time and never get sick. They do mention that some items may be subject to cross contamination, however.

This is a Seattle favorite. Sure it’s a little pricey if you compare to like... subway... but you’re in an expensive city getting quality fresh food so it’s really not overpriced considering.

We always enjoy our food and the service has always been top notch for us. Even one meal mess up that we took to go, they immediately refunded us when we contacted them.

Decent sandwich but extremely overpriced! Two sandwiches cost us over $25. Not worth it. There are numerous other awesome gf options right around the corner.

great restaurant! very good gluten free option. they do a good job of avoiding cross contamination (their menu does say there is a risk of it, simply because it's made near regular bread). I haven't had any major issues with cross contamination (possibly a little bit because I'm very sensitive to it), so I would rate this restaurant very well. their GF bread is also soy free (including soybean oil and soy lecithin). if you have any questions just call up their corporate office for the ingredient list. would highly recommend this place if you have gluten allergies (and soy and dairy allergies too!)

I am just starting to go to restaurants again after be diagnosed with Celiac. I am very fearful of cross contamination. I chose Homegrown off this app for a place to take my mom to lunch. I had a few questions and explained in need a gluten free meal. They didn't seem like they had knowledge of how to accommodate. What was worse, after explaining I needed gluten free, the cook did not change gloves when she went to make my salad. My mom saw this and asked if she was going to change gloves. After the cook gave an annoyed look at her, she did change her gloves. The food was good, but after spending $42 for 2 for lunch, I expected a little more care in my food prep.

The gluten free sandwich I had was wonderful. My gluten eating boyfriend tried a piece of it and even said it was good. Annnnd they make the gluten free stuff in a seperate area so this celiac didn't get sick! There is a risk of cross contamination but they do a good job of trying to prevent it.

I explained I am severely sensitive to gluten (almost too emphatically) but it worked. Didn't get sick. The chicken cranberry (?) sandwich for about $12.50 is huge and delicious. Had three meals out of the full size sandwich (sold in half and whole sizes). The staff is very nice and accommodating. Definitely will eat there again.

It's sad that I had to travel to Seattle to find amazing and regularly sized gluten free but home grown did not disappoint. I am here for a week and I will most likely go back just for the bread and the yummy salads and soups. Definitely worth a try!

very tasty. when i said i had celiac they automatically jumped into explain their whole cross contamination prevention system (they get fresh ingredients, change gloves, etc). for their sandwiches, they don’t have a separate toaster but they said that they line it with tinfoil (i think it was a toaster oven) for celiac. i wasn’t sure how safe that was, so i got a bowl

Really good selection of GF options, all the sandwiches can be made with GF bread and they have several bowls that are GF. There is a chance of cross contamination, but I felt completely fine after eating here. They have plenty of healthy and vegetarian options and I would definitely go again because our food was very tasty!

I was looking for a place to eat to minimize cross contamination and they delivered on that! I asked an employee if they were able to minimize cross contamination and she was very kind and told me that they have separate prep items for gluten free. She changed her gloves to prepare my salad and I feel very confident about the safety of the food. Plus it's delicious!

Food is pretty tasty. However, their toasters, etc are cross contaminated. Bowls are your best bet. There doesn’t really seem to be separate kitchen space or separate storage of ingredients for celiac guests. My celiac kid and I have gradually just stopped eating here because we get slightly (to really) sick. If you’re just sensitive to gluten, (not celiac) it’s probably fine.
