The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. I do wish they had more child friendly GF options though. My daughter had mashed potatoes and veggies and was happy but it was a little unremarkable.

They have a separate gluten free menu that is basically items from their main menu and then telling you how to ask for it gluten free, which was cool. I went here with my partner and I ordered the double decker BLT on gluten free bread. He ordered the double decker BLT but normal. His came with mayo and sauce and toasted bread. Mine came with no mayo, no sauce, and on dry crumbly ends of gluten free loaves. I asked what they use for mayo and it’s not gluten free. If I had known that I wouldn’t have ordered this.

The waitress told me fries are gluten free so I said are you sure, she said yes. I asked if the fries were fried in their own fryer and not with the chicken tenders and she said “oh, no their all the same fryer. I guess it isn’t gluten free.”

I didn’t get sick, but it was kind of scary her claiming stuff was gluten free when it wasn’t and the sandwich was awful with dry lettuce and bread. It was like eating a sleeve of saltines.

Hostess didn’t know about their gluten friendly menu but having already found it online I was able to see what was safe and the server was on top of it. The chicken salad sandwich with a side of fruit I ordered was tasty!

This cafe was very good. After asking all my regular questions about food safety for celiac diners I ordered mashed potatoes & breakfast sausage, they were delicious,plus no side effects. There were many more options listed as gf but I selected a few which seemed the safest. My partner(who's not gf, loved everything he ordered too. Glad we stopped here for down home kind of cooking. Our server was nice too.

A diner is a little bit of a scary adventure for a gluten free person. They have a GF menu online and in person, and I planned to order a salad. Then I suddenly ordered a BLT (club) which was a big risk for me personally. The waiter showed me how they toast the gluten free bread on a plate instead of on the rack. I could see it toasting. I chose mashed potatoes as a side with no gravy of course. No issues 12 hours later. I’m feeling great so they did it right. They have a full bar too.

Had a dedicated GF menu that was mostly offering GF bread in place of regular bread for sandwiches and burgers, but there were a lot of breakfast and lunch options. The GF toast for the avocado breakfast sandwich was very good.

Server asked if GF was allergy to inform the kitchen.

We were excited to hear that the kitchen manager is actually celiac so she’s super strict with her staff on cross contamination. My husband enjoyed his gf hamburger! Wish they had gf fries!
