I went to the Southport Ave location but I assume they're all similar. All of the items are clearly marked and most of them are marked gluten free. I had the cookies and cream for the first time in forever.

Because this is during COVID times, you can’t approach the counter where the ice creams are (at least at the west loop location; you order at a register from inside the front door). However they have a sign posted that says to alert cashier of any food allergies.

They have a couple of gluten free flavors and a couple of dairy free options. But best of all is there are 3 gluten free AND dairy free options!

This was such a brilliant experience with clear labeling. No such bore as vanilla and chocolate! I enjoyed banana cream brulee and goat cheese cherry - both blew me away!

Amazing ice cream with lots of different flavors! Tell them you have an allergy... and they will get a new scooper and get it from a tub in the back to avoid cc. All flavors are marked GF on the glass in front of them.

Yummy ice cream with several gf choices. Cross contamination possible but staff were very willing to scoop from the back where there was no cc at all, and they knew the drill for doing it without being instructed.

They list which ice creams are gluten free and got me a clean scoop from an un-opened container in the back. It was delicious!!

All gf ice cream is marked. They will open a new carton and use a clean scoop if you ask them. You need to watch to make sure they don't put a waffle chip on your bowl.

All you have to tell them is you have celiac and they immediately know to go to the back, open a fresh container of ice cream and use a clean scoop. They GF ice creams are all clearly marked. And if you haven’t had Jeni’s ice cream, you are in for a TREAT! It’s insanely good.

Most flavors are gluten free. I got a packaged pint, but I'm guessing you could ask for a clean scooper from a new bulk container. Really outstanding ice cream!

This place was so cute! 90% of the ice cream is gluten free and they can get a new tub out of the back and put it into a cup if you are celiac or have an allergy. It was delicious!
