So many things on this menu are celiac safe! I had a field day and tried a ton but can't wait to come back. They marked my spot at the table with a coaster to signify my gluten allergy. The waitress was very accommodating. I found the French toast to be ok, but not great. I want to try the dinner menu next time!

A revelation! The pasta, French toast, and churros were soooo good. Most of the menu was gluten free or could be made so with substitutions. It was also terrific for folks with multiple restrictions because the vegan and nut free options were endless including when you were seeking out gluten free dishes like the glorious French toast.

I went to Hugo's for brunch this morning. My brother and I (both celiac) split avocado toast and cinnamon french toast. Both blew me away, they were so good. I can't believe I haven't been to Hugo's before and I will be back!

They had fried pickles!!! The waitress was extremely knowledgeable as soon as i mentioned celiac she knew. The whole menu is marked whether it can be made gf or whether it is prepared gf naturally. 95% of the menu could be made gf and our waitress mentioned all their cross contamination procedures. Did not get sick either and i am very sensitive

Almost all of the items on the menu are gluten free and all desserts are gluten free. No gluten items in the frier! Food was delicious. My teen daughter with Celiac was able to have gluten free churros for the first time in 8 years (since before diagnosis.) They also have lots of vegan and vegetarian options. Great experience all around, just wish we lived closer.

I love this place! They have so many gluten free foods, and almost always can make a dish that isn’t already gluten free gluten free. I’m fairly positive, for example, that all their desserts are gluten free, and they have such things as fried pickles that are gluten free. Everything is also just extremely delicious. I highly recommend!!

It was great to find Hugo’s, we’re a huge fan of Hugo’s Tacos and I’ve never had a reaction there. We had Hugo’s 3+ times via Postmates before I unfortunately had a reaction to their potatoes. Unsure if it was an issue with ordering delivery, but I got quite sick and paid the price.

All of their pasta can be made gluten free. If you tell them you have allergies they put a card on the table so everyone serving you knows. They take every precaution!

I wish EVERY non-dedicated restaurant operated like Hugo’s. This place is so hassle free. GF items (and other dietary restrictions) are marked super clearly on the menu. So many naturally gluten free items (even the cornbread and french toast!!) and almost everything else can be modified to be GF. My sister is vegan and we have a hard time finding restaurants we can both eat at together so Hugo’s is our new go-to. I wish other restaurants would take notes!!!!

I have a zillion food sensitivities and these folks really worked with me and were very cool about it. They also don't seem to over salt their food and drinks (like lattes) don't come sweetened. This is a place we dream of. That said, I didn't end up looking their food much! I thought it was just the one thing I ordered (tacos) but I got the vegan Mac and cheese to go and that just tasted like smoke and the lentil pasta was tough. Granted I have a cold and that affects taste. Still 5 stars because it's really knowledgeable and patient and careful.

The menu is well labeled for multiple dietary needs (GF, Vegan, veg). The food and cocktails were delicious! I’m DF and dessert is usually a no-go for me, but they actually had a few options! We had the sticky buns, which I would describe more as a churro rolled into bun shape and covered in a DF caramel sauce and pecans. There is a small parking lot next door and garage across the street which was also a big perk!

Went with a group and our celiac kiddo. Felt very safe and lots of options but none of us loved it. They mention that they rely on “natural seasoning” to flavor things so you can ask for salt. But for the kids this was challenging and I agreed the kids meals were just meh. I think you need to be very selective about what you order here. But it’s safe!

Pretty much everything on their menu is either gluten-free or can be made gluten-free. My celiac husband and I have been eating here for days during a visit to LA, and not only is the food delicious but the staff is super celiac friendly. Huge menu, and my husband hasn’t gotten sick once since we’ve eaten there (every day for the past five days). Highly recommended!
