They had 3 gf options. The seeded gf bread was excellent and I was able to enjoy their avocado toast for breakfast. I would definitely eat it again. I also tried their lemon poppyseed muffin which was a little dry/crumbly and only lightly lemon tasting. I didn’t try the coconut macaroon. They bake everything in the same ovens so cross contamination may occur.

Although they don't carry enough GF baked goods (only chocolate cookie and macaroons) their GF bread for open faced sandwiches is excellent. One star deducted for not having GF muffins but grateful for their menu anyway!

I’ve tried to go here on a few different occasions bc of the reviews on here. I thought each time maybe I just got a bad employee. This place tells you flat out that it is not safe to eat ere if you are a celiac or have a gluten allergy. I don’t know why anyone would suggest this place. This place is a gluten fest! That’s pretty much all they serve other than coffees

I couldn’t eat anything here . It’s all gluten or cross contaminated

This place is not gluten free whatsoever

So good! The g-free bread is a very seedy loaf perfect toasted with butter and jam. Super high-quality ingredients used in all dishes. Pricey but worth it. Today I had a mushroom and goat cheese omelette which comes w salad and gf bread. Coffee and tea drinks are stellar. You can also get the toasted gf bread solo to have with your beverage.

Food is fine but the service is particular slow here. The servers seem pretty knowledgeable, however this is a bakery! As such, eating inside during peak hours isn't recommended - I'm a sensitive celiac and definitely felt a bit off one time due to airborne stuff.

There are several breakfast menu options that are naturally gluten free, except for the toast. They do offer a gluten free bread option, but the waiter warned it's not made in a dedicated facility, so probably not safe for celiac. I just skipped the toast and treated myself to a gluten free donut at Do-Rite (8 min walk away) afterward!

Not sure if it’s safe bc I’ve only been once after I saw that other locations have good reviews. The food did taste good. They do have gf bread. It is a nice location so if you just need a snack & place to sit it’s a good spot.

Would give zero if I could. Ok, Le Pain Quotidien, three strikes and you. Are. OUT. This morning marks my third visit to your establishment - once in LA, once in New York and now in DC. All three times for breakfast and all three times when ordering I have told you that I have a gluten allergy (actually, it's Celiac but in the US, land of uneducated people when it comes to food, people still look at me blankly when making that statement so allergy it is). And you know what? EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. At all three locations regular bread had come out on my plate and I have had to insist on a whole new meal. It's not that hard to get that right and God help the person who tells you they have a peanut allergy that will kill them. Clearly, as a chain, you don't make enough emphasis on importance of taking allergies seriously. I gave you three chances because it was three different locations and when the food comes, it's really quite good. But I'm not risking it anymore. You fail. And not once, for the risk of making a customer gravely ill, have you even offered a discount. And the wait for the new plate is long. Fail. On top of that, the service in NYC and DC was both abysmally slow. And somewhat dismissive in NYC.

I went here to buy a loaf of gluten-free bread. The guy serving was not able to answer the most basic questions about what it was made from. I noticed that they also sell gluten free brownies...but these were on display beside regular pastries so cross contamination very possible. Didn’t feel that they really had any knowledge or cared in any way to understand the their gluten free offerings.

Do NOT eat here, it’s not safe and they’re not informed on Celiac or any allergies.

The gf bread is sliced on a shared slicer. It’s toasted in a shared toaster. I asked all of the usual questions and while the server was patient and sweet about finding the information on how they’re prepping in the kitchen, the larger problem is they don’t fully understand Celiac.

The server brought the manager out who said to me “I wouldn’t eat the bread if you’re fully Celiac.” Ugh.

I ended up getting an egg skillet and I asked two more times if there was anything on it and the manager told me it was fine, it’s just eggs and avocado.

The skillet came out and my god there were pre packaged fried onion strings on top. I sent it back because ohmygod!

She was super apologetic but here’s why you really shouldn’t eat here... all they did was pick off the fried onion bits, toss on some scallions and heat up he skillet again. Instead of making a fresh dish that didn’t have cross, the eggs were hard, not runny and dangerous for me to eat.

Be warned.

Bad. Went with a small group (4). Three of us were GF/celiac. One omelet came out correctly. Two omelets came out with gluten bread on them...they were sent back and within a couple minutes they came to the table...I told them that was too fast and that they probably changed out the gluten bread for GF bread because I had not ordered the GF bread. I wanted zero bread. An omelet came out that I did eat but I don't think it was correct as it had goat cheese in it. Would not recommend. They make the gluten free bread on site in a place where they make gluten bread. Seems they cater to faders only and not anyone who really needs gluten free. Of course they, as all restaurants, had the CYA statement of 'we cannot guarantee gluten free'. I get that but I also expect an order to be correct.

I tested gluten free bread using Nima sensor and it said “contains gluten” not traces of gluten—just said contains gluten. I tested center of bread so it wasn’t cross contamination. This was in Nov 2017. I hope the company with take this seriously and try to put some systems in place to make their gluten free food actually safe for people on a medically prescribed gluten free diet.

The food was very tasty and original but I thought the prices on some items were outrageous. I ordered a side of GF bread and was charged $4.25 for a small slice of cold bread, not even warmed and no condiments to go with it. When a full loaf of GF bread is less than $10, the price for a slice is ridiculous. Tea was pricey for a small pot as well.

While their food is delicious, I don't think the kitchen is remotely safe from cross-contamination for celiacs. Cutting boards and knives are used on bread and then GF orders. Fine for people cutting down on gluten, but not at all "gluten free."
