    Delicious lime chicken tacos on corn tortillas! Also offer sandwiches and paninis in GF bread as well as multiple salads with GF dressings. You won't be disappointed!!!

    The young lady assigned to my party's table gave off the impression that we were an inconvenience. If not for the manager (or owner?), who was inviting and left me with the impression that she was glad we came to patronize the business, I would not think about ever going back. The hummus is good. It does have kick. The corn tortillas served to me were supposed to be toasted but came out limp and a little too chewy.

    I went here because of all of the great reviews and I found a crouton in my salad when I told them I had celiac. They said they knew what to do, but clearly they don't.

    Food was delicious and almost anything on the menu can be made gluten free! Guacamole, Tacos, and Enchiladas were delicious!!

    Service was overwhelmed at lunch during heavy lunch crowd. But, they were very kind and if you are patient, they are understanding about allergies. Sandwiches are served on a Udi's bun, which is ok but not sandwich like. Food was ok, but not great. Would eat there again for the precautions, but that would be the primary reason.

    Service very slow. Waitress not friendly. Waited 10 minutes to take drink order. Waited another 10 minutes for drinks to be delivered. Sign on window says "Fast Fresh Friendly ". Certainly not fast or friendly! Now 30 minutes in and still no food. Finally was served lunch after 35+ minutes. Mac 'n Cheese was very good and the Cuban was good too. Most likely would never go back.

    Great little lunch place... I got the pulled pork pineapple tacos on corn tortilla and were told they were gluten free completely. They were amazing! My non gluten free family loved it too! Would def come back

    Their menu states that they can adapt many items to be GF but when I asked about certain dishes the two waitresses I spoke with didn't seem familiar with the restrictions of a celiac diet. However they were trying hard to be helpful and willing to provide me with whatever information I needed, including bringing out bottles so I could check the ingredients. Their food was delicious (I ate alone while my husband with celiac was in a meeting), had options for vegetarians, a very friendly staff and atmosphere, and was in a convenient location downtown. It would be a great spot for anyone on a GF restricted diet that is non-celiac and/or does not have a wheat allergy. For those with celiac proceed with high caution and ask before ordering.

    Got extremely sick afterwards. I specified that I have a food allergy and was assured that my BBQ pineapple tacos were GF. I haven't been this sick in years.

    Good food, attentive servers and well aware of allergy sensitivities. My wife and I ate here 3 times during our stay, twice for lunch and once for a light dinner, corn tortillas for tacos and plenty of GF options for salads, I believe they also had GF bread option

    From my experience, the service at their new location, 5002 Paulsen St, is much better than the downtown. Good quality food. They are knowledgeable about GF and note it on the receipt, but I'm not positive about cross-contamination.

    Ordered a salad and asked her to make sure the person making it would wash their hands beforehand and she never did. The salad I got wasn't exactly the one I ordered but tasted good even though I was taking a risk (we had already left when we realized it).

    Wait staff not knowledgeable about GF items -- unimpressive to say the least. No dedicated GF menu and no dedicated prep area.

    Mediocre at best! Gluten free here is sort of deceiving. The menu states that almost any item can be made gluten free, but in actuality the only options are primarily tacos and salads. They do not have any gluten bread so their extensive sandwich choices are off limits. Although the tacos were fresh and tasty all our meals arrived at different times. Very disappointed.

    This is a small quick service cafe. The tacos can be made with corn tortillas to be gluten free. Our food was fresh and delicious and the service was good. Definitely kid friendly.

    Many options and very knowledgable staff. Friendly, fun, hip atmosphere with great music and art. I had delicious chicken lime tacos served with side salad of baby greens, and I took a spinach salad and delicious ginger carrot date bar to go. The Kayak cafe is located in beautiful downtown historic Savannah-- eat in or outside.
