In years past, Disney has far exceeded Universal in terms of awareness, measures against cross contamination, as well as consideration for ingredients that contain common allergens. Not now! Universal staff was knowledgeable and immediately signaled for the chef when they learned of our gluten and dairy allergies. The chef came to speak directly to us, to advise whether our selections were safe and made adjustments based on the normal cooking and presentation of items compared to what was safe for us. The chef prepared the meal personally and brought it out to us. Highly recommend!

the ordering process was not as reassuring as Disney but specialty chicken sandwich and fries were tasty and passed our Nima sensor test. The server insisted they have a separate fryer for GF fries but worth validating

We ate breakfast here on our trip to Universal. My daughter had the kids American breakfast that included eggs, sausage, breakfast potatoes, a pancake, and croissant. They were able to substitute the regular pancake for a gluten free pancake and extra sausage for the croissant. We alerted the cashier that there was a gluten allergy and she brought out the chef to take our order. The food was very good and my daughter with Celiacs had no issues afterwards.

I got the speciality chicken sandwich on a GF bun with fries (in designated fryer). The staff will notate your allergy so it is prepared safely. I ate here twice and had no issues! Pretty tasty too! Wish there were more safe options at the universal / islands of adventure theme parks. You can always bring your own food too - remember that :)

It really depends on your order taker. We had a guy who either hated his job or was indifferent to our request for a GF meal. My son is celiac, and I had to tell him to put allergy in the order. Absent me pleading with him, I think he would have put it in as just a GF bun on the one item that can be made GF for lunch - a chicken sandwich. We had this meal included with a Hogwarts package. I would not seek this place out as a good celiac friendly place for my family.

Nothing says gf on the menu but all you had to do was ask! The staff was AMAZING the cook came and talked with me personally gave me plenty of options, all burgers there are available on gf bread so I got a grilled chicken sandwich (they offered by less too if your keto)and I held the cheese bc I’m dairy free! The sandwiches came with fries that were safe for both celiac and being gluten free I asked but once again, though not on the menu steamed veggies were an option along with a side salad for substitute sides! Highly recommend!!

Once we mentioned celiac, the counter service person got a chef from the back to take our order. The options were limited: fisherman’s pie, chicken sandwich with gf bun, and maybe one more item on the menu. We got the chicken sandwich and fries (fried separately). Felt safe eating here and the fries were great.

It's simple place with Simple Food. Only GF option is the Chicken sandwich. Nothing to write home about, but decent enough for taste and quantity.

They DO have a dedicated fryer!

As a Celiac it is always questionable to eat in a theme park. This place offers a couple of options and does not have a dedicated fryer. Breakfast was good but pricy for what I was served. Lunch was a chicken sandwich on Udi bread and was definitely not worth the cost.

The only gf option is the chicken sandwich on a gf bun but it was very good. I got it topped with cheese and bacon and with a side of mashed potatoes, but you can also get a side salad with it. Chef came out to explain their kitchen procedures and they confirmed it was gf when they brought it to our table. I hope they get more gf options in the future but at least the one thing they do have tastes good.

Not a ton of options but verry acomidating. Ate breakfast there for 2 days and then lunch on the 3rd. I ate a specialty chicken sandwich that had a gluten free bun the fries are not gluten free so I substituted them for a side salad. And they have a gf pankcake meal. The staff was friendly and brought out my food seterately and told me exactly what I was eating. Never had a problem!

Went in for breakfast and asked for the American breakfast with a gluten free bun since I know they have them for lunch. Got QUITE A BIT of attitude from the people who take your order, but the chef was on board. It sucks to have to advocate for yourself that hard with the gatekeepers, but I’m glad I did. Chef brought my food over and I had a great breakfast.

Staff was attentive to food safety as celiac and ordered the listed gf chicken sandwich. Came with side salad gf dressing. They answered all my questions and confirmed with chef in the back. I asked for new cutlery as well and they were very accommodating, stating they take food allergies serious. The cutlery tray sits on your assigned table. It was great to eat something with my kids at universal. I knew ahead of time not a lot of options, pack yourself snacks. The atmosphere was great. No issues.

The Leaky Cauldron is the main restaurant in Diagon Alley that offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You order at a counter and your food it brought to your table. We ordered the chicken sandwich on a gluten free bun, and it was delicious. You will need to alert the staff to your restrictions when you place your order so they can prep the food accordingly.

I had the American breakfast and the staff was sure to label the meal as gluten free and took good care. They let me know the sausages had gluten in the casings, so basically the breakfast was without croissant or sausage but still included eggs, extra bacon and potatoes. A bit expensive though in the end

Has only 1 option which really sucks when they have scotch eggs, bangers and mash, hand pies etc on the menu. It was the chicken sandwich on the gf bun with a side salad and dressing. It sucks that they couldn't do corn and potatoes. Didn't get sick but could eat with my friends. You have to ask for the gf menu.

Fun ambiance, but very very limited gf options. There's a chicken sandwich; it's fine. For breakfast, they do have gf pancakes, but dear god, they're terrible. And the syrup contains gluten, so you can't even drown them in maple to make them palatable. I ate the side of bacon and called it quits.

Staff looked frightened when we asked about Gluten Free breakfast options. After a quick word with the chef he told us about their two gf options (one was pancakes) we took the safer eggs and bacon route. They brought out a plate with a croissant after a discussion on gf they brought out a corrected plate that actually looked better than the normal plate! Good breakfast!

I had the chicken sandwich and it was safe and tasty! I was worried as a sensitive celiac if I'd be able to safely eat anything while visiting Harry Potter World, but it felt really great to be able to enjoy a meal here. :) After telling them I was celiac, the staff was really kind and reassuring as well. They marked a note on my order ticket. I had the side salad with blue cheese dressing (yes, it was GF). Also all the butter beer is gluten free! It felt great to be able to participate fully in the park even with celiac disease. Thanks, Universal!

We asked if they had anything gluten free and the chicken sandwich can be on a gluten free bun and served with a salad. They only offer ranch, blue cheese ( both have gluten) and Italian dressing so I opted for no dressing. The sandwich was very good., easily one of the best I've had. My boyfriend really enjoyed it as well. Definitely will be coming back next time we visit
