Great safe option. I asked about how they cook the gf pizzas and they asked if I was celiac, to make sure they were extra cautious for cross contamination. I very much appreciated the extra steps. Pizza was good and best of all I didn't get sick.

One of my favorite cafés. The staff is friendly and the environment is cool. Local art is rotated and displayed on the walls. There's a guitar available to play if your musically inclined as well. Outdoor seating also available. Highly recommend.

Wonderful! GF items are marked but I asked about the rest and found out they had GF wraps to make their wraps Gf as well. I had the chicken salad with GF wrap, my non- GF husband had the Santa Fe sandwich. Both were great. I had a smoothie to go with and it was sooo yum.

Safe for celiacs. Breakfast and lunch. Eat in or take out. Recommended!

The Chicken Fe sandwich is amazing. Their gluten-free bread is so good!

All of their soups and most of their salads are also gluten-free. They have gluten-free desserts and a very extensive gluten free breakfast menu! They also offer healthy smoothies.

Highly, highly recommend!

This place is STILL awesome in 2020. I have been back many times. It is one of those rare places that allows you to feel normal again. The owner totally gets it. He has family members with celiac. They are open during the pandemic and have outdoor seating. I believe all of the soups are always gluten free. So many items to choose from; wraps, sandwiches, pizza, salads,etc. Great service and great food.

This place offers a great menu of tasty, healthy, well-priced food. They also have a gluten-free option for almost everything on the menu.

I was worried about potential cross-contamination, so I kept a close eye on the food prep. They were very intentional about keeping things separate (and not touching gluten/non-gluten food with the same gloves, etc).

The food was FANTASTIC (and the portions generous!) and I felt great afterward. It's about a mile off of "the beaten path" of 59, but it is a hidden GEM and absolutely worth checking out!

The owner and staff were super-friendly as well!
