First time coming here, we came for breakfast. It’s a diner that’s been around for 30+ years in the area. The decor is cute and cozy. The menu had standard and extensive diner fare. Nothing labeled gluten free, but they assured me the hash browns , omelettes, and eggs were gluten free. The lunch/dinner menu had chili which might be GF.
I had two fried eggs, hash browns, and sliced tomatoes w/lettuce leaf which they offered as an alternative to toast.
I wasn’t very confident in their processes to prevent cross-contamination and am not planning to eat here again, though it should be fine for anyone who is non-celiac and not very sensitive. I asked if they could cook my eggs on a separate surface and with separate utensils from other things to prevent cross-contamination and if people could wash their hands or change gloves before handling my food. The waitress assured me that everything is cooked in their own areas and bread is kept away from where things are cooked (but didn’t say anything about whether pancakes and French toast were cooked away from where eggs were cooked). She said she wasn’t going to ask the person cooking to change their gloves but that they would “take care of” me and it would be okay. I was not reassured but ate the food anyway (which was good/fine), won’t eat there again.
Was disappointed that they weren’t more allergy aware. It felt like it was annoying or offending her that I was asking. It’s possible that if I tried a strong charm offensive to really connect with her and explain that I wasn’t sure if it would be safe but I wanted to find out if they could make an exception and do me a favor to be really careful, maybe that would help overcome their annoyance about being asked these questions during a busy breakfast time? I’m hoping that others might have better luck, but that was my experience. For what it’s worth, the people I went with eat there regularly and love the staff and patrons there.
