GF bead choice is excellent
Love Ike's! Lots of GF sandwich options on a yummy Mariposa roll. Their staff always asks if I have an allergy to know whether to use a clean station to minimize cross contamination. My go-to sandwich shop.
When I say gluten free they ask, 'is it an allergy?' When I say yes I feel confident I'm safe. :-). Nice folks there. Live the tom Hanks with banana peppers. OMG!
I finally get the Ike's hype. They use mariposa rolls which are awesome. It does take extra time though as they have to clean a surface and change gloves. I try to go well after or just before the lunch crush so they aren't in rush mode.
They cleaned the surfaces and their gloves when I told them I had celiac. Super nice and very good gf bread as well!
This place is hit or miss. I have had a fantastic meatless mike of gf roll and then have had a not so good one. I think it depends on the freshness of the bread and the produce. The sometimes I am a vegetarian sandwich on gluten-free roll was not very good unfortunately…very skimpy on the mushrooms and artichokes and had loads of cheese on it.
Was beginning to get a little disappointed when I saw them preparing the sandwiches with sandwich slices instead of gf rolls like the other 2 Ike's use but in the end, they did not disappoint. So delicious and really hit the spot. They prepped it on a different surface.
Not quite sure about their commitment at the Cupertino shop. After prodding though, they took out a new container of sauce to spread on my sandwich. Glad to have a local shop with GF bread.
They offer gluten free sandwiches. Can view online list of which are gluten free. Carries gluten free bread and even lollipops. Serves gluten free sandwiches on 4 slices of bread (two sandwiches basically), so that you aren't getting less than "regular" sandwiches. No additional charge.
Amazing sandwich shop! Run by the same person as Ike's lair but with a slightly different menu. They have locations all over the bay area, and offer gluten free bread which is AMAZING!!!
