Phenomenal place for a hearty snack or lunch. Love that I can get sweet potato fries here (baked in an oven). Salads, bowels, tacos... can’t go wrong! They are awesome about cross contamination too. This place is now on my “go to” list for lunches.
Fabulous! A safe place for me for delicious and healthy food while my son is in the hospital. And their banana smoothie was great for him to have when he was able to start eating again. Absolutely safe for celiac. I get very sick from the slightest cc and was perfect here! Thank you, Lyfe!
I got the margherita flatbread and my sister got the chicken sandwich on a GF bun. The flatbread (which is basically a margherita pizza was absolutely delicious - chewy, flavorful, and crisp on the edges. The bread on the chicken sandwich was pretty crumbly but she said every other part of the sandwich was delicious. Prices weren’t toooo bad considering it’s Chicago and our food was ready really quickly. Also, neither one of us got sick afterwards. Highly recommend!
Delicious food, great staff. They had gluten free cookies! They put the GF cookies on the top tray, so no crumbs from regular cookies would fall on the GF cookies. We got the buffalo cauliflower tacos and baked sweet potato fries - both were amazing!
Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. My daughter with Celiac loved their flatbread and chicken sandwich.
Great options for adults and kids. Staff didn’t bat an eye when we mentioned celiac. Delicious and easy!
My experience was marginal. I ordered abbot on gf bread it came with two pieces of bacon, two pieces of very thin sliced deli turkey two tomatoes with a smattering of lettuce I was really disappointed it was like a giant piece of bread with hardly any filling. They use udis bread in case you're wondering.
Lyfe Kitchen was a lyfe saver during our family weekend vacation to Chicago. Our son was recently diagnosed as celiac and this was our first vacation where he had to eat out 100% of the time. We stayed at the nearby Doubletree and were pleasantly surprised that the Lyfe kitchen was a block away. Our son ate two meals here both were delicious and 100% GF he had no symptoms after eating here. I would say it was a little pricey for the entire family but I really didn't care since he felt great after eating both meals.
Very knowledgeable and accommodating. In addition to Celiac Disease, I have multiple food allergies. They were happy to help me figure out which dishes could work for me with some changes. Tasty and healthy food! No negative food reactions at all!
It is the closest restaurant that is GF friendly and I've had three meals here in the last two days! Everything is tasty and they are well aware of allergies.
Very good food. Lots of gf options. They had an entire separate menu for gf. A little pricy, but I think it was worth it. Definitely recommend the parmesan sweet potato fries!
Lots of GF choices!! Got the Grilled chicken avocado sandwich (bun is toasted!!) very yummy. Even have GF chocolate chip cookies. Celiac safe, I happily had no problems.
Wonderful options for my wheat Allergy. I had the quinoa crunch bowl with added grilled chicken. My only regret was that I couldn't finish all of it. SOOOO good. Server seemed very knowledgeable and customer service of entire staff was top notch... even during a period where the building gas had been shut off causing them cooking challenges.
Safe, yummy, and healthy. That's a win in my book! Quick service with a uplifting, casual vibe.
Separate GF menu with lots of options. Had the chicken avocado sandwich on GF bun with sweet potato fries. Delicious!
Yum, I lucked out and hit happy hour midweek. Gluten free margharita flatbread and beer for $10! Flatbread was great!
Gf cookies!! Real food, and delicious. They have gf english muffin and gf menu. Really nice service too.
Loved it! Fresh quick food at reasonable prices.
Healthy food done right! I had the most amazing roasted brussell sprouts and butternut squash.
They have tons of healthy options an entire gluten free menu, was fast and friendly! We had the fish tacos, the gluten free Italian flatbread, which was awesome and the Chicken and Quinoa soup. All great!
GF free menu, delicious and healthy ingredients, fast and knowledgeable service. Nice indoor or outdoor seating (assuming Chicago spring weather finally cooperates). An all around winner.
Really quick super tasting food. Whole gluten free menu with so many options. Really clued up on gluten free and coeliac. Hidden gem
The person who took my ordered if I had celiac. When I said yes; he told me that he took pride in making sure my food was prepared in the safest manner. I had the grass fed burger and kale salad. My family loved their food. Extra bonus points all around.
The food was amazing. They have a separate GF and Vegan menu. The staff was very knowable.
Flatbread was amazing. Bbq sauce that is gluten free! Yum yum yum.
Size able gf menu. Had a BBQ chicken flatbread sweet potato fries and a pumpkin dessert. Highly recommend!
This place redefines conscientious. They asked us if we had any dietary restrictions immediately as we were about to order. The staff is very knowledgeable.
Extensive GF menu; tasty flatbread; great interior; fast service; sparkling water on tap. Recommended!
Awesome flatbreads! Really fast!
This is a clean and delicious allergy friendly restaurant. A lot of organic and everything is healthy.
Delicious! They had several gluten free options on their menu. We ate there for breakfast and dinner. Both meals were great. Our 7 year old daughter has Celiac’s and she didn’t get sick either time...best of all, she loved her meals! They served her meals with Gluten Free flags, which indicated that the chef was aware of her allergy. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Though the menu seems limited as to what is listed as GF, be sure to ask about other options as they have gf buns and other items that can be made GF. Staff was knowledge about not just gluten free but the importance for those with us who have celiac, this sint a tad diner. The building was open, bright and clean, bonus in my book. We had Kendra as our server, she was not only at the height of professionalism but such a delight to talk with about any but the restaurant. Every patron seemed happy and engaged with their servers on a more personal level as well, perhaps because this was center of historical tour areas, but regardless of motivation, they are a great example of what good customer interfacing employees should be. Highly recommended, the food was not only pleasing to the eyes, but our taste buds as well. And while I'm not a vegetarian, I ordered a fabulous vegetarian taco plate that left me full (but secretly wishing I had more room, it was so good!)
Great menu options and my child with celiac loved her burger! They seemed to take proper precautions. They had gf cookies that are prepared separately. My only question was the tongs used to get them as I didn't ask if they used them on the non gf cookies. Otherwise, great place to go.
Terrible. We made sure to inform the employee taking our order that we had Celiac and could not consume gluten. They confirmed that the children’s pasta could be made gluten-free. Another server brought the food to the table and the pasta looked like regular pasta so again I asked if it was GF. The server said it was, and my children begin to eat. A few minutes later, another employee came running out from the kitchen to let us know that it was not GF pasta. My children began crying because they know the effects that gluten has on their body. No one apologized, they just offered to bring us a bowl of Asian-style thin rice noodles instead. I’m not sure how three different employees were unable to catch this mistake at a restaurant claiming to be exceptionally GF friendly.
Fantastic experience overall; the GM Justin was SUPER helpful/knowledgeable/and friendly. I was lucky he was behind the bar. Only one (VERY) minor complaint, which was rectified with a quick phone call; we ordered two sandwiches on GF, and they came made with two tops and two bottoms. Obviously not a problem in and of itself, I just had to clarify we didn't have two types of bun. I will definitely eat here again next time in Memphis. Thanks, Justin!
Got a gluten free meal, but felt gluten side effects about an hour after leaving.
Always a pleasure to eat here. Feel very safe. The tacos were delicious. Food was delivered by someone who confirmed the gluten free status.
Menu has GF selections noted for easy decisions. The staff is knowledgeable and offered me a sample of delicious corn chowder before I ordered it. The salmon was tasty. They have soft GF cookies and delicious drinks. As a Celiac, my taste buds were tickled! Great customer service, great food, and ambiance.
Great choice of GF items on the menu. Also like the attention to quality ingredients and good nutrition. October 2017, no separate GF menu. Menu has a number of items marked GF. No GF bread was offered for sandwiches- boo! All flatbreads use GF flatbread though. Feel that there is not as much choice now.
Unbelievably I was served and ate a sandwich on a regular sandwich roll not the gluten free as ordered. I always reiterate my order is for a "gluten allergy" so wherever the mistake happened, whomever entered it or prepared my order is an awful employee. Managers were all alerted after the fact, they apologized but nothing to make up for their serious mistake.
The staff was very knowledgable and helpful to ensure a GF experience. They notified the cook to avoid cross contamination. Much of their menu is GF and plenty of selection. Would recommend this casual spot for those suffering from celiac disease.
Daughter has celiac. Spoke with manager and was assured no issue. She knew right away what celiac was. Red flag went up when food delivered to our table as all meals were on the same tray. My daughter really enjoyed her meal but paid for it for two days after as meal had gluten contamination.
Menu items clearly marked & several choices. Had BAKED sweet potato fries-yummy & did not gave to worry about oil cross contamination. Also BBQ chicken flatbread was yummy. It is listed as a shareable & was sufficient food for us but could also be entree if you want it yourself
Absolutely delicious, celiac-friendly and good on the wallet.
