    Excellent! Dedicated GF facility. We sampled lots! Crisp, tender breadsticks, cheese bread, grilled cheese, Belgian waffles, homemade tomato soup. Baked sweets looked amazing, but we were too full to sample. Next time!

    All I can say is... OH.MY.GOODNESS! Do not miss this place. Celiac Heaven! Entire place is gluten-free. My girls were giddy as we walked in and eyeballs got giant at seeing all scrumptious bakery treats and menu for lunch. Few breakfast options + good offering of sandwiches on variety of homemade GF breads plus hot plates too. Started with breadsticks/marinara— YUM! 4 sandwiches and Mac n cheese all extremely good and the treats were delish! Also all affordable. Walked out with banana bread for breakfast. Rated our family’s best meal for everyone on a 4day tour of StL. Near Forest park/zoo for anyone trying to plan trip/meals. Thanks to owner for your courage in opening a fully GF cafe!

    You won’t find a place with more gluten free options. The icing on the GF cake is that this place is DELICIOUS. Try the biscuits and gravy for breakfast or the macaroni and cheese with bacon for dinner. For dessert, the chocolate crinkle cookies are amazing. If you’re in STL, you have to try this place! I can’t count the times I’ve been here in the 5 years I’ve been gluten free. 😂

    Such a limited bakery selection. The frozen cinnamon rolls I got were good! But based on the reviews I was really hoping for more options to take home with me. I wish they put their menu online so I could have known what to expect.

    Completely gluten-free restaurant! I believe they are also nut-free, and they have many dairy-free and vegetarian options. It’s amazing to be able to eat everything on the menu!!! Can’t speak highly enough about the staff, experience, and food.

    New Day is simply the BEST restaurant we have ever found for my wife. We live in a much bigger city than St. Louis, but New Day is the only dedicated facility we’ve found that offers substantial and delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert foods. We’ll be ordering from their online menu to have items shipped to us!

    I visited for the first time yesterday, two months after my celiac diagnosis. It was so comforting to find a place that is 100% safe. I had the biscuits and gravy, which were delicious! The gravy tasted better than any I’ve EVER had in a restaurant. You could tell the biscuits were gf (crispy around the edges, kinda bland) but the gravy more than made up for it. My father has the pancakes which were disappointing. The pancakes themselves were sour. And they mix agave nectar with pure maple syrup till it no longer tastes like syrup. I ordered a muffin to go. I’ll definitely be back to this celiac safe zone!

    I have Celiac and was so excited to eat here. It exceeded my expectations as not only was it good GF eating... but it was delicious. They offer soup, sandwiches, pasta, pizza and largest variety of GF desserts I have ever seen. Tried a variety of items at my table and would highly recommend mac n cheese, broccoli cheese soup w/ breadstick and a chocolate dome!! I don't live nearby but definitely will be making the trip again as soon as possible!! Thank you for making dining out a positive experience!

    We are visiting from Texas. I have celiac and was super excited to find this little gem. I had the biscuits and gravy, creamy, lots of flavor, biscuits had a little crunch to the edge but soft in the middle. Definitely a treat. I also purchased donuts and cinnamon rolls for later. Everything is gluten free. Super friendly staff. Can't wait to go back.

    Everything was delicious. My non-celiac husband enjoyed everything he ordered as well. They do birthday cakes, wedding cakes, and they even ship their products. Wonderful staff and service to boot. They also have many dairy or egg free desserts.

    Service superb, food plentiful, perfect American-style comfort and local, in a charming little cafe -- New Day Gluten Free Cafe is a revelation. It's rare to find a dedicated gluten-free facility; rarer still to find one whose care and cooking has made a chemical reaction of nearly perfect noshing. From waffles, pancakes, and classic egg-n-toast breakfast to meatball subs, sandwiches and later-day offerings, New Day wins at celiac-safe, gluten-free, quality food. I only wish their waffles and pancakes were dairy-free as well! But their french toast, thankfully, is dairy-free, and New Day offers a healthy array of options for those who can't eat dairy along with gluten. It isn't organic, and their baked goods include canola oil if not using butter. But that's another superb aspect of this cafe: baked goods out the ears. Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls -- and one of the best compliments I can give didn't come from me. I took my grandmum in on Tuesday, and she -- not gluten-free by any stretch -- dubbed the gluten-free toast (a blend of rice, almond, and white bean flours) the best toast she'd ever had. Need a gluten-free meal in the midwest? Hit up New Day. They are a home-run.

    Amazing gluten free options. We spent 3 nights in St. Louis and I think I ate here 5 times! My very favorite was the biscuits and gravy and also a sausage biscuit (the latter isn't on the menu so I ordered a 1/2 order of biscuits (to get 1 biscuit) and a side of sausage patties and made a sandwich). The sugar cookies with the fluffy icing are also AMAZING. We bought a red velvet cake for my daughter's birthday and it was very, very good. The only things I got that weren't A+ were the mac and cheese and lasagna; they were decent, but nothing worth writing home about. I cannot wait to go back to this place. I'm salivating just thinking about it!

    I think they forgot to take their recipe book with them when they moved. Disappointed with cupcakes mostly icing and still dry. Prices seem high even for so so gluten free

    This place is a dedicated GF bakery and cafe. It was a must we go here while we were visiting St Louis and have lunch. My son had the Mac and Cheese, 12 yo celiac daughter had the lasagna, husband had the Italian sub and I had the turkey club. Everything was delicious. The GF bread here is some of the best I have had. That included the breadsticks that came with the mac and cheese and lasagna; they were so soft. Also, the sandwich bread was super soft even the crust was soft and edible. The only thing that would have made it better is if a few of the items would have been available in a kid size serving like the Mac and Cheese. Currently there are no Kids items you just have to order the full size version. Lots of dessert options as well. We were here on a Saturday before Mother's Day and it didn't appear there were any issues of them running out of "sweet" dessert options like some dedicated bakeries that just bake barely enough for that day. We will definitely visit again the next time we are in St Louis. I have uploaded pictures of all our food including our dessert.

    My husband and I went here this morning for waffles and pancakes. The prices are higher than gluten containing foods but it's worth the expense to not have the gluten side effects. Food was good and have cookies and cupcakes in the car for when we get home.

    We were in town visiting Wash U with my daughter and were only here for a day and half. That tells you something when we ended up eating here three times during that time period. The waffles and pancakes were light and fluffy! The pizza was probably the best pizza I've ever tasted -- GF or not. My wife has Celiac disease and had no issues whatsoever since the entire place is GF. My daughter and wife's willpower was not strong enough to resist some of the baked goodies, which were supposed to be eaten later but never made it to the car. What a treat and what a joy. Super nice staff, too! Definitely recommend.

    Great! Cute cafe with several sit down tables. The facility was immaculate and beautiful. GF baked goods were tastefully displayed in a bakers case and a menu showed so many GF choices, I had to really think about it. I chose pizza and my husband (who doesn't have to be GF) chose a sub sandwich. Both were EXCELLENT. Everything there is gluten free so relax and enjoy. The staff were helpful and friendly and I loved the whole experience. We bought muffins, cupcakes, and cookies before we left but we're too full to eat them then. I highly recommend this place!
