No GF safe options at all. Waitress was familiar with Celiac and said she would even stay away from the items listed as GF since there is no separate grill and no way to make sure that it’s not going to be cross-contaminated. Manager specifically came over and echoed the waitress’ comments. We appreciated the honesty, but disappointed that there were no safe options.

I went here for brunch after reading a review that it was one of the most celiac safe places in Milwaukee to do so. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED when we got there and the manager explained that “nothing about her kitchen is safe for celiacs” and that if I wanted to eat safely, I should stick to fruit, yogurt or salad. While I really appreciated her transparency and respect for the importance of the situation, I was so bummed by the options I had.

Fantastic place to eat. The waitress was very knowledgeable and double checked any questions we had. (My husband has a corn intolerance on top of needing to be gf).

I had the gluten free pancakes on the side with my Mad omelet and fruit. I am pretty sensitive and had no reaction. They seem very knowledgeable. My pancakes were especially marked as Gf with a toothpick. They have a lot of GF options. Not a dedicated fryer, so get the breakfast potatoes or fruit instead of fries. It’s a popular place so call ahead for a table!

The staff was very knowledgable about glutenFree. While they don’t have an extensive GF menu- the GF pancakes are amazing! My celiac son ate all of them and did not get sick. All the food was amazing as well. We will definitely go back.
