Yummy, but got glutened. The staff ensure that the kitchen is very careful about gluten allergies, but an hour later my stomach is destroyed. I have had better luck with homeroom to-go. Homeroom to-go seems to have less cross contamination.

Delicious vegan and gluten-free mac & cheese! No issues since I let them know I was celiac in my Postmates order and asked to avoid cross contamination.

I ate here years ago, and while delicious, I don’t think they are Celiac safe. They said they use the same pot for their gluten free pasta as their regular pasta, but they just cook the gluten free pasta first at the beginning of the day. Hard to say if their pots are contaminated, but have to err on the side of caution. Would love to eat there if the gluten free Mac and Cheese were Celiac safe. So much potential!!! Homeroom please make your gluten freeze and cheese Celiac safe!

Very yummy they can substitute any dish with gluten free noodles! definitely would come again, better for people who are gluten sensitive because there kitchen isn’t 100% gluten free dedicated but very tasty either way

Yummy mac and cheese, lots of gluten free options. But our recommendation is to keep it simple!

I only gave this a two at star rating because the employee who assisted me was very kind and took great effort to look into my needs with celiac disease and being vegan. For the record the vegan cheese has soy sauce in it which they will substitute with olive oil or regular dairy cheese. Before I even got home with my Food the olive oil seeped from the bag and went everywhere. It tasted like a bowl of oil with a side of noodles and veggies. I tried changing the plate from the to go box to one at home to take out some of the oil which did nothing. There was a giant goop of oil at the bottom of my blah food. I recommend the only people who come here are those whom eat dairy or are only gluten sensitive and do not have celiac. I could have made this same meal more to my liking at home for far less. The staff is really nice just not accommodating to vegan and celiac disease folks like myself.

I wish I could eat here. The food is delicious. But, I have celiac and every time I've eaten here, I've gotten sick. Our waitress was very nice, and said she'd inform the kitchen of my allergies. Regardless of her good intentions, the kitchen environment must be prone to cross contamination.

Really great food. I am a celiac, have been eating here for years, and never get sick. They have separate bowls in the back for gf foods, so there shouldn't be any cc happening. Worst thing that's ever happened is that someone overdid it with the tapioca starch rue that is added and my Mac and cheese was not a nice consistency. They came over, picked it up, remade it correctly and comped my meal. Highly recommend!

I want to love this place because mac & cheese is a favorite, but almost every time I get sick. The wait staff were knowledgable of gluten sensitivities, but unfortunately the cooks don't seem to be :(

My husband and I are both GF and eat here often. We tend to go at slightly off peak times so we have never had a long wait. the staff is knowledgeable and eager to accommodate. Most of the menu can be adapted to GF.

You can sub quinoa pasta for any of their mac and cheese selections. Its pretty tasty but pricey and always busy. When I don't feel like cooking we take Homeroom to go and add our own bacon at home. Probably not safe for celiacs, but great for those of us with a wheat sensitivity. However, I can make better at home, but I'm a really good cook.

Don't go if you're in a hurry or need food immediately. Otherwise, GO. My dish was slightly al dente, 100% delicious. The service is very sweet despite how busy they are. I can't wait to go back!

They will make any of the Mac dishes gluten free so there are a lot of choices and they are very good -I have been several times and the pasta has been a bit different each time,but well cooked and the cheese sauces I have tried have been very tasty. Unfortunately,I did get sick after one visit, so a bit more attention to cross contamination is warranted. Side dishes,especially the carrots,are quite nice also.

Takes forever to get in and out. Mac and cheese is good, but very pricey. Worth trying.
