    Just like some other reviewers had mentioned, this place is NOT a dedicated facility nor do they have a dedicated kitchen space to prepare gluten-containing and gluten free items separately. They do however have a wide variety of gluten free items in the grocery section so if you want to grab something to prepare at home this could be a good place for that. Gave it 4 stars for the friendly staff and the grocery section. I would stay away from the bakery/deli part if you are concerned with things like wheat wraps cross contaminating anything gf they sell in that section.

    Part mini-whole foods, part GF sandwich and soup counter. We found this spot accidentally while looking for another place. Happy accident! Sandwiches were great along with delicious GF corn chowder and fantastic selection of chips and snacks all GF. Oh and they make their own GF bread!!!

    Driving through CT and saw their billboard advertising GF so we stopped in to get lunch for my 2 celiac sons. Large selection of sandwiches and paninis on freshly baked GF bread and several flavors of GF cupcakes. Everything we ordered was fabulous!! Will be back on our next trip though CT for sure!

    This place is amazing! I saw their billboard sign on 84 and decided to give it a try, completely worth it. I regularly make the drive from Virginia to Northern Massachusetts, and finding a quick lunch is almost impossible. Not anymore! Great choices for food to go, loved their bakery potions, and shop while you wait!

    Best place for GF food made on the premise. They are known for being a GF grocer/allergy issues. I love the weekend because you can have breakfast there. The waffles & pancakes are to die for!!!

    Not a dedicated facility, but they specialize in gluten-free. Tons of baked goods, great cafe, maybe even better than Whole Foods for shopping selection. If you ask, they'll make it or order it.
