Linnaea’s Cafe is gluten-free friendly!!! They have gluten free breakfast and lunch. The selection of so many types of desserts and pastries including gluten free and gluten free/vegan are great. Their vegan milks are gluten free and their chai is homemade. I love the garden and the charm of the place but obviously have to watch my waistline between the muffins, cupcakes, cakes, and cookies that are available!
Went here because it had so many good reviews from Celiacs - was very disappointed. The man behind the till refused to make any effort to accommodate cross contamination issues. He refused to guarantee that any gluten-free marked item would be entirely gluten-free due to shared kitchen area - I can understand this concern in regard to fryers/ovens, but all I wanted was the labelled gluten free salad! It is not difficult to avoid cross contamination in making a salad - all of my flatmates eat gluten and I am easily able to make a celiac safe salad in our shared kitchen. Honestly, I think this particular staff member was just lazy and couldn’t be bothered making the extra effort to ensure that my food was safe to eat. I won’t be bothered to go there again.
The gluten free muffins and cookies were clearly marked and the friendly staff could not have been more pleasant and knowledgeable. I had a very tasty vegan/gluten free blueberry muffin with a wonderfully made matcha green tea. I definitely recommend this spot to chill while you eat a light breakfast or snack.
The food and drink were great. Lots of gluten free options. But the indoor seating felt like I was in a library. About 10 other patrons were there for lunch, each on their own table with a drink working on their laptops. All dead quite. The patio out back would have been wonderful, but it was 109 degrees outside that day.
