GF options are indicated on menu (substitute GF bread). Staff seems knowledgeable. Fast. Fresh. Had Vegan Banh Mi without lemonaise - tasty and crunchy. GF bread was ok - better as a small salad.
Vegan Friendly, with many sandwich options
Leaving a review to lower the rating as this site is supposed to be used to help people find safe restaurants...and this is 100% not one of them. The Mendocino chain is NOT CELIAC SAFE, and is GF only by Los Angeles fad-diet standards. Certainly doesn't deserve a 4-star rating on FMGF...
Their salads are quite good (and actually interesting compared to most sandwich places) and they take special note when I say I have a gluten allergy/celiac. Have eaten here a handful of times, never been sick.
So I had a sandwich on gluten free bread and the bread was toasted and tough. I tried to cut the bread with a plastic fork and it won’t cut the bread. I went inside and asked if someone could cut the sandwich and the answer was no. Apparently no one could go wash a knife. So I’m appreciative that they were trying to be gluten free, thank goodness I have all my teeth. I have five people standing around me trying to figure out how to cut a piece of bread, really! I just said give me the sandwich and I’ll deal with it. No management response and sandwich ultimately was good. However, WTF, I can’t cut your bread or re-do your sandwich.
