I would not recommend this place. They closed early as we trying to come in to order. Sign clearly states hrs and they were shutting everything down and locked up before time to close. They just stared at us. Very rude and unprofessional.

Excellent! Stopped in before my long drive back and got a gluten free everything bagel with lots of toppings. It was delicious and I didn’t get sick after! Alerted the person at the front that it was an allergy and she circled my order and made sure the people knew.

The husband/wife owners had very good understanding of GF and because they make everything by hand, they know definitely what is GF. My family had bagels, their handmade cream cheese, and crust less quiche. Highly impressed!

I was excited to see this option with good reviews in such a rural area. The staff taking my order seemed knowledgeable, showed me the dedicated prep space behind the counter. I went back to add something else to my order while they were preparing it (no one else was eating food so I know it was mine) and they weren’t using the dedicated prep space for my salad. I should have thought about it more because my husband and kids were having bagel sandwiches made up at the same time so there were crumbs around. Food was great but I started to get sick within 20 minutes of eating and I’m still running to the bathroom 4 hours later. I think this is probably a safe option when the staff use the dedicated prep space but you may need to watch them prepare it (get a seat at the bar). So upset I’ll be sick over Christmas and I’m supposed to get antibody levels checked next week so I’ll have to reschedule those.

Knowledgeable staff, dedicated prep area- and delicious food to boot! The morning we went there were 2 crustless quiche options: chorizo poblano pepper jack and crab and swiss. My mom and I got one of each to split and they were equally fantastic. My children shared a smoothie and a yogurt bowl w almonds and fruit. Oh- and the coffee is wonderful!

Loved Mountain Perks prior to my celiac diagnosis! Once diagnosed I talked with the store owner a lot about safe practices, but sometimes would occasionally get sick. However, since the expansion and dedicated station I am so happy to have perks back in my life and be able to dine safely. Explain your allergy and they will happily accommodate. I recommend requesting your wrap on a plate if possible though because it will fall apart on you, but SO GOOD!! My favorite is “The Floridian.” Gluten Free options in Bryson City are extremely limited, so happy to have a business that has been working on accommodating and improving for years.

Excellent food and many GF options, fresh fresh veggies, GF wraps, and including some GF soups of the day and brownies. Generous portions.

Love the localness and rustic handmade furniture. Every time we eat here it takes a while to get the food but worth the wait. We always eat here when in town.

Delicious gluten free offerings, almost entire menu available GF. I had the crab and Swiss crustless quiche with a GF cinnamon raisin bagel and maple cream cheese. Crab was not "fake" crab, which shows they did their research. Great decaf mochas as well.

I asked about the GF menu and mentioned that my daughter has CD and she immediately let me know that their meats and cheese were GF, but they're blue cheese wasn't. She said they had GF wraps and bagels also and that they didn't have a dedicated GF kitchen/prep space but that they would keep everything on aluminum foil.

Even though it was almost closing time, they still made gluten free meals for two. They were very knowledgeable about cross contamination, and the gluten free bagels were amazing!

We found out many mountain town restaurants are either closed on Sundays or close early. We were getting desperate for dinner choices and we ran in here 10 minutes before closing - which was 4:00. They stayed open for us to get dinner to go. The owner and his wife were very knowledgeable about cross contamination. The food was excellent and the staff was fantastic.

They had gluten free bread and wraps but did not seem to understand that meats and condiments can have gluten. Not sure about cross contamination procedure when toasting gluten free bagel.

As someone who is sensitive to gluten, Mountain Perks offers a gluten free option for everything on their menu. I go there almost every day and am so impressed by what they have to offer in our small town. They also have the best coffee around! Outstanding service and highly recommended.
