Yeah they have gluten free ingredients. Great. But they're right next to and being spilled on by glutenous items. And being served with the same utensils.

Is no one in the world aware of cross contamination?

Since their main service is their line, I called ahead to see if they can prepare my meal separately due to gluten intolerance. Their wonderful manager, Dustin, not only reassured me that they could but that if needed he would personally oversee he preparation of my food. I arrived with a few coworkers the same day. When I went to order, not only was my food being prepared but Dustin met me and said he had already placed the order for me. He also informed me that the macarons are gluten free but may be exposed to cross contamination, but the vegan brownies, which were individually wrapped are completely safe. The staff were also awesome and helpful, price was great. The salmon avocado salad arrived and it was incredible- salmon was perfectly cooked and cold, dressing was made with fresh dill and the cucumbers were lightly pickled in a refreshing vinegar which maintained its crunch. Portion was so large, I only could get through half the bowl! Brownies were sooo good! While we were eating, Dustin came by and checked to see how I liked my salad and I told him it was great. An all around excellent experience- amazing food and PHENOMENAL customer service! See you all again soon! (This review was also posted on Yelp)

The staff was very knowledgeable. Everything is clearly marked on the menu. The place is very neat and clean so I think cross contamination is low to none. When I told her I have celiac she made everything in the back, but it was so clean I'm not even sure it was necessary. The food is really delicious and super healthy. The lemonades were amazing. My kids and I all have celiac and this is our new favorite place

They also have a good gluten free brownie that is wrapped separately.

Good experience and good food! The employees were super helpful and checked their menu regarding what was gf. Used clean gloves & serve right in front of you so you can see what’s going on.
