This review is from my 11 yr old daughter who has Celiac Disease. This is probably the best breakfast I’ve ever had. Our server Gray was amazing. The waffles were so fluffy and the syrup was delicious! The eggs were super fluffy too! I could anything I wanted from the menu! The ENTIRE menu and bakery is gluten free! This never happens! I want to try the cinnamon roll but they were sold out so I’ll try tomorrow.

Every time we are in town we make sure to stop by multiple times. Jewels cafe is definitely our go to place. Thankfully we make several trips per year. We live 6 hours away but it’s always worth the drive. Our daughter is celiac and it’s the best feeling to tell her she can have anything she wants on the menu!

Be wary of wet benches during covid they sometimes use bleach and will bleach clothes with no reimbursement. Also the wait will be longer than they tell you by an average of 30 min.

We drove 40 minutes to eat here and they were closed an hour and a half earlier than posted on their website. I am very disappointed.

Jewel's has a very large menu that was hard to choose from because it all sounded so good. I went there twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch. The food was good, but nothing special. There were definitely improvements that could have been made with the flavor. And the ham in my breakfast burrito was so thick I ended up taking it out.

It's always nice to eat at a dedicated gluten free facility, and they had good dairy free options for my friend, but for the price the food was just ok.

Vacationing in Scottsdale and drove here for brunch on a Saturday. Was able to get a table outside at noon with no wait, so big points there to start.

The cheese curds were amazing. Wisconsin-worthy for sure. Huge portion and very very stretchy and gooey. Never thought I’d have these again so was very excited. The tots were also delicious.

We shared the pancakes (a miss, they were not fully cooked through), the chicken fingers and fries (quite good), the carnitas breakfast burrito (really good) and the waffles (the star of the show). The waffles were excellent and the non-GF people in my group agreed they could not tell the difference. The syrup here is almost like maple mixed with powdered sugar. It looked odd but tasted so delicious that my 10yo was wiping the container clean with her finger. :)

If you are GF and want to be able to dine without worrying about a million safety questions or getting sick, it is worth the drive from anywhere in the metro area. It’s also close-ish to the airport if you’re looking for an option pre or post flight.

They have a bakery case with delicious-looking cupcakes, cookies and brownies but unfortunately didn’t grab anything as we were stuffed. But will be making a return trip before we go back home.

We have not been able to eat here without upset stomach (possibly old oil they’re frying food in)- and my whole family of all ages has this issue as well. Not sure what they’re doing different from a few years ago. Also the pastries are failing in quality now.

It's a nice Saturday morning, they're not even busy. I'm a party of one. There's a counter and at least 15 open tables but a sign says host staff will seat me, so I wait. The only thing the host would offer was the bathroom table so I got takeout instead and ate it in my car in their parking lot.

The food was good, I went back inside to request something for the potatoes and was given a good aioli.

Ate my $21 box of biscuits and gravy in my car in their parking lot and I will only be back if I'm dying of starvation in this part of town. Rude.

It was decent but not worth the drive, the snub, and eating it in my car. Service counts!!

Amazing food! I had the chorizo hash bowl and it was incredible. The only downside was that I called ahead of time to make sure they had corn free options (I have a corn intolerance). And I was told that everything was corn free except the tacos and donuts. I went in and found out that waffles and burritos were made with cornstarch. I was definitely disappointed about that but I'm glad I double checked. Also I checked the desert case and later found out it all contained corn.

Everything is phenomenal. Occasionally the hostess has no clue how to clean the tables off and get the line outside moving along and the wait will exceed 25 min. Call ahead and ask them how long the wait time is so you’re prepared. They sometimes run out of things that are popular, don’t be afraid to try something new. My family LOVES this place, can we please get one in the west valley???

Hot Nashville-style crispy chicken sandwich was very tasty (got it between a warm waffle bun, it was a bit soft for my liking though not soggy which was a plus since it made it easier to eat all components together with your hands as a sandwich should be). Definitely worth a visit & try. Also, had the “tempura” cauliflower appetizer, coating was good but lacked flavor & a bit bland. My non-GF friend enjoyed her peach scone though my blackberry scone was too mushy. Their peanut butter cookie was fantastic (chewy, sweet, salty & PB heaven)! I do want to try other menu items. Prices were as expected as far GF dedicated establishments go. Super easy to find, ample parking & overall service was very good. They ran out of some baked items but the kitchen & staff were prompt to alert you as well as make a fresh batch which was great!

Customer service was absolutely terrible and the oil they were frying with was burned.

The food and the customer service is so much better at Intentional Foods (highly recommend!).

Our waitress was so busy flirting with the male waiter and talking to their table of friends that came in that our table was completely neglected. Our waitress spoke maybe 20 words to us the whole time we were there - we had to ask for water refills and the check because she never acknowledged our table except for when we waved her down.

It took over an hour to get our food, and the appetizers showed up AFTER our entrees. Everyone else was receiving appetizers before their food, yet the wait staff pretended to be confused when we asked what happened to our appetizers. The table of the servers' friends behind us ordered after we did and received MULTIPLE, continuous orders of various appetizers and entrees for a whole hour before any of our food showed up (including multiple rounds of the food that we had ordered prior to the servers' friends ordering anything).

We were given a 10% discount; however, discounts don't make up for crummy customer service. The kitchen also needed to change the oil in the fryer - it had been burned, and permeated the entire taste of the fried chicken. I'm very bummed since I had heard rave reviews about this restaurant. Any celiac that has experience baking and cooking gluten free could make the food offered here and do a better job of it.

As a celiac, I seek out gluten free only restaurants when we travel. It's a shame that this has been the worst restaurant experience I have ever had, even among restaurants who are not equipped for celiac customers. I hope that the cafe can learn from our poor experience, especially considering that the menu raves about how celiacs customers should feel "normal" in the cafe and not like second-class citizens.

We drove half an hour to try this restaurant out after following their Facebook page and drooling over their food pics for months and months. I’m happy to say, it was worth the drive! I was giddy with excitement for my daughter and niece who have celiac disease knowing they could pick ANYTHING they wanted off of the menu. We had a party of 13 and EVERYONE loved their food! All of the staff was super friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back for their delectable pastries and their amazing food!

Taken my celiac son here 3 times in the past 6 months. Two out of three times he was glutened. Staff has been rude and service slow every time we eat here. Food was bland unless you want it spicy. Personally, I like good, tasty food that doesn’t require five-alarm chili peppers. Lots of great options in the neighborhood that have better service, better food, and reliably gluten-free. Won’t be back to Jewels, ever.

Edited to add: Talked to a friend who is celiac that has also been glutened there. Very disappointing.

Edited to add: reading other reviews, I think the abundant use of oat flour is the source of the gluten exposure. Studies are showing there really is no such thing as truly GF oats due to cc in processing. Certified GF only means there’s less than 20 ppm, not zero. So even if they are using certified GF oat flour, that does not mean there’s zero gluten. Celiacs beware!
