Overall bad experience here. The place looked cute so it lured us in, but staff were unprofessional. The server seemed a bit clueless about what was or wasn't GF, so I went with something I deemed pretty safe - roast chicken, vegetables, and baked potato. Lo and behold, I found pasta noodles in my vegetables. How!?!? Sick for about a day. Use extreme caution eating here.

Herb chicken. I'm kicking myself because zooming in on this photo you can see the noodles in the veg. I was hungry and didnt notice til it was too late.
