Excellent sandwich and service. Explained I had a gluten allergy and the kitchen made sure to prepare on clean surfaces and such. Turkey sandwich was delicious- best I have had since being diagnosed in 2020. Will be back.

They toast your bread separately and change gloves if you mark “wheat allergy” on your order :) They understand what GF means!

Farm club sandwich is a fav!

The person I ordered with knew what Celiac was, and I saw him notify the person making my food, plus it was noted on my receipt. Watched the person making my sandwich clean the prep area in advance. Food was good too!

Wheat Allergy

Overall Rating

Review


The staff was accommodating with answering questions about ingredients for multiple food allergies, and they said they can mark gluten-free orders as an allergy and use separate gloves, knives, etc. I got the impossible burger on gluten-free bread (no gf bun). The bread was your standard gf packaged bread, but the burger was good and I didn’t have a reaction.

I asked about the flourless chocolate cookie, and the person working at the counter said that while it doesn’t have gluten ingredients, it’s processed with the other ones and therefore not safe. Overall, I appreciated how knowledgeable and honest they were.

The menu has many items marked GF and others that can be tailored to avoid gluten. I also got a bag of GF BBQ chips! No ill effects today.

Ordered a sandwich on gluten free bread and asked the cashier to note a gluten allergy (I know it’s not an allergy).

She did and then went on to explain to me their procedure with a dedicated toaster for the gluten free bread. And warned me that it tastes so good you will think it wasn’t gluten free but it is.

She was right! That was the beast sandwich I have had since my diagnosis and I wanted to cry tears of joy while I ate my sandwich.

It was a little pricey but 100% worth it!

I grabbed a bag of Dill Pickle chips because yum! And certified GF. Bonus! They have soups and salads sides with gluten free options as well.

Have eaten here twice in the past 3 weeks. Staff is great and takes gluten free seriously. My child enjoyed the sandwiches and had no issues.

The food is excellent; tasty sandwiches and salads. They have multiple gluten free options and can prepare items celiac-safe.

If you order a gluten free sandwich they do not cut it. They bring you a clean knife so that you can cut it yourself, assured that no cross-contaminated cutlery was used on it.

You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table.
