    I choose to be gluten free, but I think key's tries hard for those who do not do it by choice. They asked me if they could put my sandwich on the grill to be sure they did not cross contaminate.

    Very accommodating and certainly knew GF options and constraints (server even came to tell us the GF toast would be an extra minute because they use a separate grill).

    Love this place! The GF pancakes are amazing, I've never gotten sick eating them, add blueberries to make them even better. The atmosphere is one of the loveliest in the area, cozy and friendly and fun (watched the cooks dance as the made food!). The GF toast is no so great, it's thin and grainy (it's Udi's, so meh) and also doesn't have a dedicated toaster. I've gotten contaminated from it. Never had an issue with the pancakes, I just wish they had GF Buckwheat pancakes. Their buckwheat were the best.

    My mother and I both got sick. May have been an off day? Our server was not good and it seemed like we were a burden to him for asking about the gluten free. I had a great experience in the Roseville location...

    I’ve always ordered GF pancakes (and yes, they’re just as big as the regular ones,) and bacon; I haven’t gotten sick once)I have Celiac Disease and am very sensitive to cross contamination.)

    They have gluten-free toast on the menu but the waitress told me that it goes in the same toaster as normal bread and they have no other options except having it untoasted. They also have a shared griddle that they do not clean for gluten-free customers. That being said, I had a delicious steak & cheese sandwich. So just be aware that their advertised gluten-free items may not actually be celiac safe, make sure to ask your waitress.

    Really good GF pancakes and waffles. Staff was knowledgeable about GF and friendly. Location is tiny and very busy while we there, but food was worth the wait.

    Gave options, but no gluten free menu. Staff were not knowledgeable and even dismissive about the need to prepare separately to avoid cross-contamination.

    Waffle was delicious and staff took great care to make my food separate (took a little longer than everyone else's) - would recommend

    Went here for lunch and it was great! keys had a lot of options for me being dairy and gluten free. But be careful as they do share the same kitchen space.

    I ordered a tuna sand which on gf bread and was given a tuna sand which on regular, gluten-filled bread. Thankfully I recognized it and sent it back without eating it. My daughter ordered a burger with no bun. It arrived with weird yellow stuff on it. I asked and was told the cook accidentally put cheese on it and then scraped it off. The house gf chocolate cupcake is super dry. I thought it was inedible. Our server was nice and took some money off our bill, but I won't be back.

    Literally the best gluten free pancakes I have ever had. And they are bigger than your head. I would suggest sharing. So good and I didn't get sick

    Great cafe food, separate gluten-free menu, at least one gluten free dessert in the case available, and can order others to take home.

    I wish I'd seen the other review mentioning shared equipment and utensils before going here. I had an omelet and later was sick from the cross contamination.
