The owner is great. They have always been accommodating of an allergy and they have a dedicated gf waffle maker. No issues with cross-contamination after semi-regular visits.

They changed gloves and appeared to take precautions when they were making my daughter’s gf waffles. Definitely a separate iron to make the waffles.

The gf waffles they use were thick and fluffy. I ate the kid’s leftover gf waffles with strawberries and cream and they were awesome.

My wife and I got the not gf paffles (nutella/bananas and eggs/cheese/bacon/Siracha mayo) and they were really good!

It isn’t the same as the regular paffle, but it tastes really good.

I was so impressed! When I ordered I mentioned I needed a gluten-free waffle. (All of their menu besides the fried chicken can be made gluten free). One of the employees asked if anyone else on our ride was gluten-free. They have a separate (clearly marked) gluten-free iron and clearly labeled ingredients. My order was served on a separate tray. I noticed everything was cleaned before and after each use. It’s located directly on Main Street, so the parking was in a public parking area. The food was delicious!! Great local coffee, wonderful food! If it wasn’t so far away (I was traveling), I’d be back often. They had a lot of vegan options as well, and combined vegan and gluten-free. We ordered two sandwiches (large sandwiches) and two coffees for under $22 including taxes.

Knowledge of what to do here - they have a separate area for GF items. The waffles were delicious and they had an extensive menu.

They have a separate iron for gf waffles and know celiac disease and cross contamination. Also the waffles taste great and hold together well, which is not always the case with gf food. I would definitely go back.

SO good! We had the Choriz and blueberry/cream waffle—both delicious. My partner, who is not GF, loves them as well. Dedicated waffle iron and kitchen space—made me feel super safe! The owner is really kind and enthusiastic to be able to offer GF options.

Eat here weekly; dedicated griddle for gf and they “get it” in terms of cross contamination. Haven’t had a bad meal yet, but favorite is the T-balt.

amazing gf waffles- i highly recommend the pie for a sweet treat or the iron paffle for something a little more healthy. we inquired as to the waffle mix they use and it’s very complicated, they obviously put a lot of work into their waffles. a must try if you are in charlottesville!!!!

They have a different batter and equipment for the gluten free Paffles. I got the “Rise ‘N’ Iron” which was a blueberry compote with cream between two soft, fluffy, warm waffles. It was amazing.

We really enjoyed our food, kids and adults. The staff truly understood gluten free, and have separate equipment for gf. We are on our way to John Paul Jones Arena and I’m glad we are starting with full bellies.

The food was delicious and they were super knowledgable about gluten free!!! Our daughter loves her waffle sandwich and they put it on a separate tray for her and let us know clearly that it was the allergy one. The only thing to beware of is that the gluten waffle leaves crumbs everywhere. If some people are eating gluten, remind them to wash their hands thoroughly. But it was great!

The staff was helpful! There is no dedicated kitchen but the batters and waffles are made on separate machines. I have eaten here several times and never had any adverse reactions. Highly recommend!
