Had an incredible brunch at Kitchen Notes! Everything on the menu can be made GF!!! They have GF biscuits but I was disappointed to find that they were very dry and crumbly. It was a novelty to even have GF biscuits so I didn’t fault them for that! I had the patty melt which was so delicious but very very salty! There is a dedicated fryer so I was able to have fries on the side as well. Our server, Hanna, was so so kind and we had an overall great meal. The restaurant is beautiful inside and it’s convenient location in the Omni hotel made it the perfect spot for a pre-flight meal (we stored our luggage with the bell hop during our meal!).

It was an amazing breakfast. The chef’s wife has celiac so he’s very aware of contamination issues. The hostess had them put gluten free biscuits in the oven for me while we waited for our table. I had biscuits and gravy…first time in years!!!!

Our server was fantastic and knew exactly what was safe and not safe for me. I ordered an egg sandwich on their GF biscuit and it was really good! I also got the breakfast potatoes which were fried, so the oil in the fryer had to be changed before they made mine, but it worked out fine and I didn’t get sick.

Update new visit 09/28/19: Still stand by this amazing find! Absolutely love it here. Although the menu doesn’t indicate anything about GF items the wait staff are great at explaining that basically everything can be made safely with some minor exceptions. I ordered a biscuit basket, a side of bacon and a single egg plus a side of goat cheese to make my own GF breakfast biscuit and boy it was fantastic! Being able to eat biscuits and jam outside of my own home is worth every penny. I do need to add a caution, I ordered a JD on rocks which was brought out with a paper straw in it. I explained that with the new push for paper straws it’s come out some use gluten as a binding agent so would be unsafe for Celiacs. The server was gracious, got me a new drink and a few seconds later the manager came over. She thanked me for bringing that possible concern to their attention and was going to contact their exact supplier to verify if GF or not so they could A ensure other patrons safety while using what’s on site already and B if not GF order from a supplier who is! What an amazing find! Our server Kevin was great and very knowledgeable about Celiac. The menu is not labeled for gluten free items however there are plenty of options. They even brought gluten free biscuits with jam to my table! I had the frittata which was so yummy. My bf who is not celiac has the breakfast hash and said it was really good too. The kitchen seems to have a really good understanding of celiac needs so I would absolutely recommend you try this place out while in town!

They use Udi bread for sandwiches which is good. They said they had GF biscuits and I asked what flour they used. They said WhiteLily Flour - I looked it up and it said it was made with soft summer wheat which had lower gluten - decided not to eat it.

I was delighted to have gluten free muffins (chocolate chocolate chip and blueberry) and gluten free biscuits. The biscuits were, as other reviews indicate, not the best but apparently the gluten filled ones weren’t the best either. The muffins were fabulous. Had eggs cooked to order on the buffet line with sausage and bacon from the line too. Meant to grab a banana but forgot! Had to ask for biscuits 2x but they came eventually with a fresh plate of butter and jellies. Happy Day!

The waiter was very aware of my celiac needs and he made sure to take my written instructions to the chef. The chef came out talked to me and said he caters to celiacs all the time. I had no reaction and enjoyed my gluten free biscuit egg and sausage sandwich. I had no gluten reaction.

Staff was knowledgeable and while they didn’t have a separate gluten free menu, they could adjust many items as needed. And, amazing gluten free biscuits that come with your meal - with separate butter and jelly (had no trouble with them afterwards and tested as gluten free with my Nima).

Just had to try when I heard about the GF biscuits and gravy! It was amazing! Biscuits were fluffy and the chef made GF gravy fresh per order. They also had a whole cart full of GF parstries and muffins. Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent option for GF diners.

We went here for lunch one day... It's inside the Omni hotel. There are a few items that are naturally gluten free but you can also get an sandwich as they have gluten free bread and biscuits. Staff was very helpful and food was great! Liked it so much we tried it out for brunch another day, another great experience with gf biscuits and muffins.

They are excellent at dealing with food allergies! They have a GF section on the buffet plus a few GF options listed on their menu. Not everything is listed so just ask your waitress. They have GF toast, biscuits, and muffins. I have other allergies too (milk and eggs) so the chef brought out the packaging for some of the items so we could double check the ingredients. Amazing service!!!

Very good food, got the basic 2 eggs. Waiter swapped potatoes for fruit because they potatoes were fried, but that was fine. They even had gf toast! Very good food.

However, I am feeling a bit sick after eating. Not certain, but I may have been glutened. I can't be sure though, so benefit of the doubt.

They also have tons of GF pastries. I'm getting a few to go and I'll post if they're any good soon.

Pleasant place in the OMNI Nashville Hotel. We were there for the weekend brunch. I had the tomato, spinach, mushroom, and cheese omelet which was good. They offered gluten free biscuits and muffins. The biscuits were quite good but I'm from the Northeast so what do I know. The muffins were a bit too sweet and I like sweets. Lots of good fruit and berries. Only cheesy grits and I like mine plain. A bit pricey. I would do it again.

WOW. I had the sausage and egg biscuit, which comes with pan roasted potatoes, and a side of seasonal fruit. Honestly, the biscuit was so good that I still am not convinced it's gluten free. It was light and so buttery. The best gluten free biscuit I have ever had! The eggs were so fluffy, buttery, and delicious. I'm not usually an egg eater unless they are smothered in ketchup and salt/pepper, but I ate these with the delicious melted cheddar over top. The sausage was perfectly cooked, but the potatoes. Oh my word. Pan seared to perfection, moist, and so very flavorful. They had a kick to them that I surprisingly loved (even at breakfast time). The fruit was completely delicious, and perfectly ripe. I would absolutely recommend this to everyone!

Great GF breakfast options. Service is slow. There's only two GF dinner options. I suggest trying Kitchen Notes for breakfast, go somewhere else for dinner.
