They have a gf menu. Our server was knowledgeable and made sure everything was safe. I’d eat at this location again.

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.

I called and they said they had no gluten free options for some reason. Went anyway and they had a bunch of good tasting gluten free options

The food was good, but I got sick immediately after eating. I specified celiac and asked for the separate preparation but I can tell something was cross contaminated unfortunately. It was not busy when we came.

Decently priced, good portions, decently knowledgeable staff. It gets really busy (which makes me worry about things getting missed) but I’ve yet to have any issues. This place is definitely heavy on my rotation.

Delicious breakfast for dinner! Staff was knowledgeable about celiac preference vs allergy. Hash brown and toast cooked on separate pan on griddle to prevent cross contamination. I would absolutely recommend!!

The waitress asked if I had a gluten allergy and if it was sensitive enough that I wanted my food prepared separately. Very knowledgeable!! Great little place for breakfast.

Waiter was very knowledgeable with celiac disease, and let me know that the chef will prepare my meal in a separate area in the kitchen. Have gf toast and the hash browns are gluten free as well!

They had a separate gluten friendly menu with options and substitutions, including GF toast. They asked if I had a gluten allergy and said they would cook it separately. Even my hash browns came after my meal because they were being cooked separately. Pretty good food and some good options. GF toast and bread available.

Gf menu. Hash browns cooked in clean area gf bread but careful with toast. Make sure gf bread is not placed in toaster. Great food! Gf friendly, but be careful

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.

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!

Went to the Metro diner for breakfast. They can only offer gf toast. Not cooked separately. The waitress didn’t even know where a gf menu was. Stay away if your celiac
