Staff seems knowledgable. Crepes were outstanding - so much so I got one to go too!

No separate space. They are careful with wiping down equipment but if you're highly sensitive, I wouldn't risk it.

I live in the building above Oby Lee. If you are truly celiac, you will have a reaction to these crepes. They are amazing and delicious (as is a lot of things in the cafe that are GF) but every time I've eaten here, I've had a mild reaction. I'm assuming due to cross contamination. They use the same utensils and crepe grill.

Fabulous crepes! Lattes pretty fantastic, too. Also a wine bar but was here in the am so did not try that out. Will add this place to one of my go-to's when in Arlington!

Has a very limited gluten free options. Does cater to gluten free by making a crepe with what looks to be brown rice flour. The bacon they serve looks good but upon asking if it is indeed gluten free one of the workers said that he wasn't sure. He did state that they cure and season they're own bacon. He just didn't know what it was seasoned with. Kinda important.

We stopped in for brunch and had the GF (buckwheat, I think) crepes .I had the lox and eggs, and hubby had chicken and avocado. His chicken was sliced like deli meat, so I think I got the better deal. Brunch mimosas were $3.95!

I don't know how they deal with cross-contamination regarding the crepe cooking surface, but we didn't have any problems.

Oby Lee is very honest about how they don't have separate cooking facilities for the gluten free foods, but they make best efforts to avoid cross contamination. So if you're extremely sensitive you may want to discuss with the helpful owner.

Otherwise, they have a good selection of options (including extra yummy cookies) and I've had no reactions.

Just had a very delicious gluten free dinner at Oby Lee's and it was light enough to have a savory crepe entree followed by a delicious dessert crepe (Nutella, bananas, strawberries, and whipped cream!) Everything on the menu sounded delicious so it was hard to choose. Most menu items could be made gluten free, just have to avoid the sauces. It was very nice to have so many options! Definitely will go back next time we're in the area!

Can't say enough good things about this place. The crepes are the best I've ever had, and most of them are available gluten free!

HUGE selection of GLUTEN FREE crepes- breakfast, lunch dinner. Just ask for them :) I got a delicious gluten free Smoked Salmon Lox & Eggs (to die for it) and GF Banana Strawberries Nutella. My BF got GF Sauteed Shrimp & Spinach with Goat Cheese (very tasty) and GF Bananas Foster (yummy). Did I mention about their Brunch Mimosas- mango mimosa is a killer :) Love it!

Great cafe and wine bar. They serve gluten free crepes as well that are delicious! Also have a few select gluten free deserts, mainly peanut butter cookies.
