Cannot recommended this place enough! Went here twice in the 2 days I was in San Jose. 3 of the people I was with (including myself) have celiac and are very sensitive to cross contamination, none of us got sick and the sandwiches were delicious. The farm club and the chimmichuri steak and bacon were hands down our favorites but the chicken pesto caprese and prosciutto &chicken were also delicious. The staff was knowledgeable and marked the order as an allergy. The gf bread was a seeded bread and a normal size! I wish they had these in MA I would go all the time. They also had reasonably priced wine on tap that was great!

All salads are celiac safe and they do have gluten free bread/buns. When asking about food safety for celiac, the manager came out saying he already had the chef made aware of it. Overall, delicious, safe food. Definitely am going back and would recommend.

This was a delicious surprise we found in Rice Village. The staff was wonderful. The manager walked us through the menu and told us everything could be done Gluten Free. They treat all forms of gluten sensitivity as celiac and follow a strict protocol (separate area, new gloves, etc… but not cross contamination sensitive so didn’t ask a ton of questions about the protocol).

They have GF artisan bread, Cibatta and sesame buns that were DELICIOUS (and not Udi’s!). We got the “Not so Fried” Chicken, Chicken Caprese, and Shroomlicious “Steak” sandwich. All were good but favorites were “Not so Fried” and “Shroomlicious.” Sides were unique and tasty. Refreshing lemonade concoctions. Beautiful patio. Great place for lunch.

They even made us an extra 1/2 sandwich to split as a sample since the samples inside were on gluten bread. Staff went above and beyond.

Never had an issue with their Avocado/quinoa superfood Ensalada, it’s the best and so filling. For any vegans or vegetarians their tofu is not GF just fyi.

I’m always skeptical about getting a sandwich, but the staff here are amazing. They take pride in being trained to have safe practices and made me feel confident that my sandwich would be safe for me to eat. Had the half club with the kale and apple salad and it was delicious. My mother in law was jealous that my sandwich looked better than her regular club. Will be going back to try more menu items very soon. Well done Mendocino Farms!
