I am super sensitive and skeptical eating here… however after being seated first question that was asked was does anyone have an allergy. I decided on the plain pancakes with a side of hashed browns they told me they are done separate with no cross contamination. It’s been 4 hours and I did Not get sick!!! They were delicious as well. Win-win!! Also had a memosa I will definitely stop back next time in town.

Our waiter was awesome. He immediately asked about any allergies and confirmed how everything would be cooked. My banana chocolate chip pancakes were delicious. I will definitely be back.

After ordering my food with the server he sent the manager over just to confirm that everything would be safe. He even changed the way they prepared my sandwich so that it wouldn’t be cross contaminated. Delicious food and I didn’t get sick.

Our waiter Billy was great! Immediately asked about food allergies and ensured my order came out correctly. I ordered the Avocado Toast with GF bread - it was great!! My daughter ordered the GF pancakes and they were delicious. I highly recommend Miss Shirley’s Cafe! Had a bit of a wait but it was worth it.

NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY! I GOT SICK! I would give it two stars because once I finally got my food it was delicious, but then someone with Celiac might think it is safe so I cannot. I was extremely sad that we had to stop so many places on the ride home for me to go to the bathroom b/c I really wanted to have a new place to eat. I eat at Outback frequently w/ zero problems but they seem to be one of the only places that don't get me sick. Anyway, like another reviewer said, their menu is NOT easy to figure out and our server was not helpful at all. They want you to tell them what you want THEN they will tell you if it's GF after discussing it with manager and chef. My husband said we needed to leave b/c he knew I was near tears b/c they said they'd said a manager over twice to help me b/c our server was clueless and then they never did. My food did turn out amazing after taking 30 min to order, but I got super sick on the way home. Very disappointed it was not celiac friendly for a place that asks about allergens.

My favorite restaurant in Baltimore! Understands celiac vs. intolerance vs. dietary preference. And the spicy Shirley is one of the best bloody Mary’s around.

Amazing food and service. The manager came to the table to discuss our choices including the way our meal would be prepared. They have separate areas for prepping gluten free food. She was able to suggest menu items that would be safe to eat. They have gluten free pancakes and gluten free bread for sandwiches. The two people in my family with celiac ate delicious meals and weren't sick at all afterwards.

Only options that we were told avoided cross contamination were pancakes and toast. Also did not have good service that day. Waitress made several rude comments. Was hoping for a better experience from all the rave reviews. Very disappointed.

Lured in by the promise of pancakes that were both gluten and dairy free. The pancakes were amazing and did not disappoint in the least. The portion is pretty huge so come hungry and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable about individual needs.

This place was awesome!! I had the cinnamon roll GF pancakes. They were delicious. They don't have a GF menu but the manager came out to discuss my needs and suggested which items on the menu are GF (mainly pancakes and sandwiches). They prepare everything in a dedicated GF area. I would go back again. They serve breakfast and lunch only.

Number one I loved the customer service of Miss Shirley's-- they bring a manager to talk to you if you mention you have allergies and when I called first before coming they were very accommodating and reassuring that I would have many options to eat. I got the GF pancakes which are also DAIRY FREE. So excited about that. Delicious, I got them with blueberries. They also have Gf bread for sandwiches they said. Love that I can go out to eat with my non-gfdf friends and still eat happily and safely. It is a little expensive but it's worth it for a treat.

Great pancakes for breakfast. Staff was fully knowledgeable on GF issues and complications. They cook on a separate burner to prevent cross contamination. It was delicious and very reasonably priced!

The first thing our waitress asked when we sat down was “Do you have any food allergies”? Great place and understands food allergies.

I have a shellfish allergy & celiac and have a allergy detection service dog for both my allergens. Often when something is celiac safe, it’s CC risk for shellfish. This staff and the chefs were VERY knowledgeable. I ordered the Fiesta N Siesta without the corn chips as there was risk of CC from shellfish because of the fryer, but they are gluten free! The chef was incredible, took extra care & remade my food when my service dog alerted the first time because of one of the spices. He cleared it after words and it was absolutely delicious! I’d high recommend and would love to go back there honestly.

I have celiac disease and I was very confident with the care taken with my order. The waitress asked straight away if anyone had allergies. After I ordered, the manager came to our table and spoke to me about the precautions they take with allergies. I ordered gluten free blueberry pancakes and fruit salad. The portions were huge. 4 large pancakes. The pancakes were very dense-typical of a lot of gf items. Tasted pretty good. I never got sick which was awsome since I was traveling. I would definitely go there again if in the area.
