    They have gluten free mix ins but they use the same scoops for all mix ins. She did offer to get ice cream from the back from a new container.

    Stopped here for sandwiches. The staff were very friendly and professional. They asked if our GF was for an allergy, so they toasted them in the oven, which takes longer. The food is good, healthy sourced, but there's a penalty to GF here because they use Rudi's bread which is extremely crumbly and much smaller than the other bread. So the one of our group who is not celiac got a far bigger sandwich for the same price.

    The owner took the time to assure a celiac safe sandwich and truly the best latte around!! Thumbs up!! Couldn't fit anything else but staff was willing to accommodate with safe ice cream too! Maybe tomorrow 😉

    I had GF DF chocolate ice cream. It was delicious. And to prevent cross contamination, they got the ice cream from the back. Love this place.

    We had two delicious sandwiches and two delicious ice cream treats. The ice cream is out of this world. My mom had the strawberry ice cream with gluten free yellow cake mixed in, strawberries mixed in and whipped cream mixed in. She thought she had died and gone to heaven. The server offered to do the mix in because we were the first customers and the stone was clean. I don't know if they have a separate space for later in the day when it is cross contaminated. I got 4 flavors of ice cream (chocolate, cherry, pistachio and peanut butter) with their home made fudge sauce. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. This was probably the best ice cream I have ever had. The server was friendly and patient while we made up our minds and took good care that we were not glutened. Couldn't have been happier.

    VERY very slow service. I stood there for 20 minutes waiting for a gluten-free sandwich only to be told when I got up to the counter that they were out of gluten-free bread! Meaning I don't get to eat lunch today because I don't have time to go anywhere else because my conference is 20 minutes away! How about if you don't have gluten-free bread have a sign out so that people that have an allergy can leave to go find somewhere else to eat so they actually have time to have a meal!

    All of their ice creams are gluten free! They even off vegan ice cream as well. As soon as I told them about my allergy they made special accommodations for me. They ensured no cross contamination by obtaining ice cream from the back of the store with separate scoops. They also took out new plastic ware for the spoon and most of all - they were super nice about it!!! Great staff.

    Best vegan ice cream I have ever had and they even have gluten free ice cream cones too! I also noticed they offer Rudi's GF bread for their sandwiches. Very accommodating! We needed dairy free and they got our ice cream from a new container in back.

    I'm also dairy free - they had 3 flavors and were super accommodating. Came in both days we were in town. Yum!

    Very knowledgable about celiac disease and cross contamination and takes all precautions to avoid it. The staff is really friendly and they have the best hot chocolate I have ever had in my life. Definitely coming back here.

    Fantastic celiac friendly choice. The staff was very knowledgable about cross contamination. They prepare all sandwiches and sundaes in a separate location, using new ingredients. I had no reactions whatsoever. The food was delicious. We will be back often. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    This is a fantastic place to eat if you are a celiac. All the ice cream is GF, they have GF ice cream cones, GF cakes and GF bread for sandwiches. On top of that they ask if you are a Celiac and if so they have a special location and procedures to ensure everything made is safe. It was a fantastic experience.
