    Very happy to not only find a delicious restaurant but also one that had some great GF options. Third day eating here! First day had blueberry muffin. Second day chocolate chip muffin. Third day lavender muffin. All absolutely delicious. They also have GF toast. We have a very sensitive traveler and no illness observed. They have some incredible non-GF pastries also. Fun place to visit an absolute must if staying in Lihue or Poipu.

    Some of the best gluten free bread I’ve ever had. Great coffee and food - a must stop for breakfast.

    Great food! I had the cafe club with gluten free bread and a piece if gluten free carrot cake. the cake was a little expensive. It was about the same price as my sandwich but, it was really good. I am the only one in the group that has celiac but everyone tried a bite and liked It! The sandwich was also excellent. no reaction yet but, we just left. Everyone thought the food was great.

    I had a fantastic meal here. They made a grilled cheese with bacon and avocado in a fresh pan to avoid cross contamination. The gf carrot cake was also delicious. Highly recommend eating here on the way to Waimea Canyon.

    Had lunch here specifically because they had GF options and said they served breakfast all day...they do, but it's a limited breakfast menu. Food was tasty and pretty reasonably priced for Hawaii. Wish they had a separate fryer for the fries (they are not safe for gluten free needs due to shared fryer), but overall, would go again. They did have GF dessert options (carrot cake and a muffin I saw). If they made the fryer GF I would have given them 5 stars

    Looks really good. Nice staff. Normal looking food - gf desserts and bread looked really good. No dedicated gf menu so you have to ask about other ingredients but staff are super nice. When I asked about the bread and desserts, a staff member said they wash their utensils in between batches, but make gf and non gf baked goods on the same counter, so it's possible to be contaminated. I decided not to risk it, but cute place.

    This was a favorite during our vacation. Everyone in our family was happy with lunch- both GF and non GF choices. It was so nice to find a restaurant and order a GF sandwich for my daughter. The GF bread was the best we have ever tasted, and the GF carrot cake was delicious.

    So nice to have a place where my Celiac 12 year old son could get French toast. Staff was super helpful about keeping it from being cross contaminated.

    I love this place! Excellent selection on the dinner menu, food is marked GF, is tasty and not too expensive. They also have GF baked goods. The GF carrot cake tastes delicious and not GF at all! The GF chocolate chip cake with fresh strawberry (slices of raw strawberries) frosting is sublime, I dream about it- it's that good. I would recommend they label their breakfast/brunch menu GF. They are very busy in the morning, so be sure to mention SEVERAL TIMES if you are celiac or have a gluten allergy. One time at brunch they brought out my plate with gluten toast on it, touching the other food and were slow to bring out a new meal. However, great service over all and a caring staff.

    French toast was amazing. Bread was the best I've had since being celiac, definitely not your typical UDI's or Franz bread. Syrup was gf too. I'm finding on the island much of the staff at the till are younger and don't know much about gf but they're happy to quickly ask another knowledgable staff member the gf questions. They had beautiful gf muffins there, but I noticed they were sitting right next to the other pastries, so if you're paranoid about crumbs and cc don't get too excited.

    They may not have a dedicated GF menu, but this place is excellent! Their breakfast is great (eggs, bacon, fruit) and they also make gluten free muffins though they run out quickly. Their coconut cream coffee is SO good that I bought a bag to take home!

    I called and asked questions and was told that they DO NOT HAVE A DEDICATED GLUTEN FREE section in their kitchen. Flour is everywhere.This is a bakery. It is not Celiac friendly.

    GF carrot cake. Need I say more? I also had a gf BLTS (they put sprouts on their BLTs) and it was delicious! The gf muffin was not tasty, alas. They told me they could not make any guarantees about cross-contamination in the kitchen.

    The GF cranberry orange muffin was the best I have ever had! The lady we ordered from wasn't sure what had gluten and what didn't buy the lady she asked did seem to know. They they had quite a few choices for breakfast they could make GF. They have GF bread but its cooked in the same toaster machine as the reg bread.
