The salads here are amazing! If you are celiac I wouldn’t recommend getting the sandwiches because they don’t have a separate area or separate utensils but in terms of salads they have “gluten free” mixing bowls and utensils... I’ve never gotten sick from here and I highly recommend the modern ceasar no tortilla.

Not safe for celiac. Shared equipment, utensils, and spaces. At least staff was upfront that their menu is not okay for celiac or allergies.

Used to eat here all the time and be fine. The last 4 times (over the course of several weeks) I ate a gluten free (allergy indicated) Italian Love Sandwich and I had a gluten reaction each time!!! Something has changed and I obviously cannot go back anymore. BEWARE!!!

Asked employee about CC issues when walked in, was assured they use separate panini presses for GF & wheat products. Placed order, then told by man behind counter, they use same press, wouldn't put anything in it to prevent CC, & showed us the statement on their menu stating they used shared equipment. Needless to say, we left. This is not Gluten Free, you can offer as many GF products as you want, but when you don't try to prevent CC, it's NOT Gluten Free.

Yum! Their gluten free bread is pretty good. Turkey club with avocado!! They have an allergy button that they push and the workers lay down a piece of paper and change their gloves to accommodate you. They usually have a gluten free soup too.

I got the gluten free tuna melt with no red onions. The bread was so tasty, with a sweet nutty flavor, and the veggies were fresh and colorful. The tuna melt was made with veganaise, so I didn't have to worry about my food, it was perfect. :)

Probably my favorite sandwich place ever! All their food is from local farms. Even their beer, soda and chips are fun brands that you don't see everywhere. Their sandwiches are unique and delicious and their gluten free bread is pretty good. Several gluten free sandwich items that are clearly marked and they're sensitive to allergies.

I actually loved the food but although they have a dedicated toaster for the gluten-free bread, they did not know about having a separate station for the sandwiches; my concern is with cc with the sauces and knives. However, after talking to the manager, they seemed open to improving. I'll follow up!

One of my favorites! I frequent this place regularly. Love their gluten free bread - it actually tastes like really good normal bread. Overall great sandwiches and great salads. They actually ask whether the gluten “allergy” is a preference or true allergy and therefore prep differently. Great place, highly recommend.

A really good experience! I got a really tasty sandwich, and the staff helped me feel confident in the safety of the food. The sandwich itself was plenty of food; I ended up taking the side home with me for later.

The bread held together nicely while holding my sandwich, as well.
