What a find with many gluten feee options. They encourage me to try multiple samples. The flavors are rich and tasty. Just as good today as it was last time I visited this super premium ice cream parlor in the eighties. 👍👍

I've been here many times. The staff is usually good about getting ice cream from new containers and using a new scooper, but one time the woman behind the counter refused to serve me, and I had to ask two other staff to help me. Still, definitely safe for Celiac - just watch out and make sure they actually do go to the back to get ice cream from a new container.

They have a list of gluten free ice cream flavors and when we asked, they were willing to scoop from a new ice cream tub.

They do a good job with GF (and DF, too). The workers are mostly high school kids but, when you tell them it’s for an allergy, they all follow good safety protocols immediately. Well trained.

Amazing for celiacs. They had a bunch of gf flavors and as soon as I said I had a gluten allergy they said they’d get me ice cream from an unopened batch and clean a spoon for me without me having to ask. Great service!

This was the only place in Boston we could find dairy free ice cream (not just sorbet). And as a bonus they had two different types of gluten free cones! So thankful for places like these - gluten free AND dairy free! Definitely a win.
