    GF Chicken & Waffles, with 3 toppings on the side = bliss!! Service was a bit unorganized, but they were so nice. The amazing food more than made up for any prior confusion (mixed up orders between tables). Highly recommend, especially if celiac. It was nice to feel "normal" and to not be treated any differently, because of my allergy issues. What a treat!!

    Amazing food and it’s all gluten free! The fried chicken is so good. Waffles were delicious and as a gluten eater, I wouldn’t have known the difference. My celiac son loved it. Cupcakes were phenomenal. Only thing meh was the biscuit. We drove 45 min to eat here and will likely do it monthly!

    Entire restaurant is Gluten free and the staff is wonderful. First experience was perfect and highly recommend waffles sandwiches and brownies! They are also cautious of other allergies as we have a nut, food coloring, and pork allergy on top of gluten allergy. Can’t wait for our next visit.

    Dedicated gluten free bakery. Uses oat flour, which a lot of people with celiac can't eat. I didn't get to try a lot of food because I also have a dairy allergy and there were only a very few things to try. I ended up eating a vegan cookie, which was tasty but definitely disappointed everything else had dairy in it.

    Delicious! We traveled from out of town and were so thrilled to have a celiac safe treat. We had cheeseburgers and grilled cheese and breakfast at noon. Delish!

    This is by far our favorite place in Phoenix. It is entirely gluten-free, everything on the menu is delicious and the staff is wonderful. Double-plus bonus: the bakery has new and tasty things all the time, so there is always something fantastic to take home.

    They have very good food and very good desserts. It depends on who you get as a server but sometimes the wait is very long but worth it.

    This place is "dedicated gluten free" but uses oat flour in everything. Oat isn't safe for all celiacs, and to be honest, oat flour behaves so similarly to wheat flour that it doesn't take an expert-level amount of skill to make non-vegan baked goods with oat flour. I just wasn't real impressed with this place. Spouse and I did manage to have a vegan oat-free lunch, with buffalo cauliflower bites (the breading is rice panko), tacos, and sweet potato fries, which were all delicious. The cauliflower served the hot sauce on the side, and the ranch dip is vegan. I was pretty disappointed that one of the few dedicated-gf places in the Phoenix area is using oat flour in everything. While they may used certified gf oats, using oats alienates a subset of celiacs who can't tolerate them. And I would hope that a dedicated gf business would want as many celiac dollars as they could get. I didn't check out the restrooms, but the space is somewhat wheelchair friendly. In fact, I wasn't the only wheelchair user when I visited. The ramp from the parking lot wasn't very good, but that's not the cafe's fault. They also close pretty early in the afternoon. If I'm in the neighborhood, I might come back here, but I wouldn't be excited to recommend this place to anyone with celiac. It's great for the gf-fad-followers though.

    dedicated gluten free!! I have been diagnosed Celiac for 4 years. Jewel's is truly a wonderful treat. Fantastic donuts, fried chicken and waffles, biscuit (dense) and gravy ( had rosemary in it, usually not much of a rosemary fan but it added a nice light touch). Friendly staff, eclectic decorations, relaxed atmosphere. The waitress was very busy but never made us feel rushed. We will be back!

    Absolutely amazing. By far the BEST gf breakfast I have ever had in all of my travels since becoming celiac 5 years ago. Dedicated gf facility, didn't have to ask questions regarding food prep and safety. Truly a treat when traveling with celiac. Food was so good that I almost thought it wasn't gf! My husband (a complete foodie and non-gf) said it was also one of the best breakfast places he has ever been to. Loved the pancakes so much that we bought the mix to take back home with us.

    I met her at the expo and purchased some goodies and her pancake batter. My family loves it. My 8 yr puts it, it doesn't taste gluten-free- they taste like a regular pancake! 💗 Can't wait to make the trip into the cafe. I agree you need to have a place out west. Their is alot of people in the Buckeye area that are in need and would support your business!

    All of the bakery items are divine. The menu items are all pretty good, but I definitely prefer the bakery items. I'm not a fan of their homemade sausage, it lacks any flavor complexity and is too heavy on the onion. But, for a celiac it is a safe and delightful, delicious, dining out option.

    Wife loves this place. I cant wait to try it. She drives 30 miles to eat hear because there are so few gf options in the West Valley. Please open another location out west.

    Feeling safe in a restaurant is a rare thing indeed! Incredible treat, coffee and food to eat, along with a happy friendly staff! No gluten is allowed anywhere near the place. Even the staff, if they bring their own lunches, are required to adhere to the gluten free promise. Try it, you will love it and feel safe!
