    I loved coming here. Not everything is an exact replica (texture or consistency) of the gluten version but they do taste good. It was awesome to walk in somewhere and be able to eat anything I want. I will miss this place as I don't live in Ottawa!

    I had their veggy pizza it was very good. Fresh from the morning. I recommend eating what they prepared fresh that day and heating it up. Totally gluten free facility gave me peace of mind. I always visit for a bite when I come to Ottawa

    The best! Been here for breakfast, lunch, and sweet treats, and nothing disappoints. The staff is lovely. We were once there soon after opening and the muffins (white chocolate with cranberry) were still warm...delicious! Our family of four has also enjoyed: avocado toast with eggs, quiche, tartine, panini, cherry tart, and more. And 100% GF means complete safety and comfort.

    Not a whole lot of dairy free/vegan items but what I had was great! Nice selection for those who are not also gluten free.

    Not really sure what the hype is. Yes, it's entiry gluten free and they offer a lot but the lunch/dinner food options sit in a cold display case looking sad and many of the options are just weird. The baked goods are beautiful but the cookies we had were dry and flavorless. Gave three stars because I appreciate that they're completely gf but not five because for all that effort you'd think things would look/taste better.

    My go-to place when I don't want to stress about cross-contamination - 100% dedicated GF! They have a wide assortment of pre-made meal choices, sandwiches, soup of the day and plenty of breads and pastries. Their lattes (which I order with coconut milk) are awesome.

    Spent four days in Ottawa, ate breakfast here three times. Dedicated GF makes it worry free. Everything from croissants and English muffins to loaves of bread are baked on site. Had the eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and an Americano twice and definitely recommend. Great location with an outdoor patio, great food and friendly staff.

    Food looked good, but be warned that they use oats in their gluten-free flour blend. If you are trying to avoid oats/can't tolerate them, you won't have many options.

    Happen to drop in here one day with my dad that is newly GF... what a great place... fresh baked everything and the food was amazing... the Owner came by the table after I told the server thank you for opening a place where ppl didn’t have to eat from a limited menu... She was so nice and had lots of information for us... it’s now a regular place for us to have lunch together.. definitely recommend!

    The first time I went here I thought (key word) I was in heaven. They had beer battered fish and chips on special for lunch and I thought 'omg wow! Beer battered fish and chips? That's incredible!' I ended up ordering that and was chatting with the chef about the recipe as he prepped and I casually asked what kind of gluten free beer they used... thinking well duh of course it would be gluten free... turns out they used regular beer. I was pretty disappointed about this seeing as they're apparently a dedicated gluten free business... So I ended going with something else that was over priced and very underwhelming. I didn't receive any apology or even really any acknowledgement when I pointed out the fact that they're giving celiacs gluten... thank god I ask a lot of questions when I go out to eat! Feel bad for the celiacs who ate there before me, and I certainly won't be going back after that terrible meal!

    I love this place! ❤️ I always get the pizza, or any of the baked goods because they are delicious. It is fantastic to be able to go somewhere and eat anything that is available. Highly recommend for celiacs!

    Everything gluten free! The hot menu changes from day-to-day, and is served cafeteria-style. Very knowledgable as to other ingredients. Some dairy-free and corn-free options.

    Awesome selection. My celiac child and hubby could not believe they could order anything in the store & be safe. More expensive than comparable non-gf options by the reaction by my guys was priceless!

    Friendly staff and TONS of selection. Breakfast pastries and desserts galore. I was so excited I devoured a palmier, almond croissant, and a tomato and Brie panini. Many delicious items to choose from. I'll be back for sure.

    Giving it a 4 and not a 5 because frankly the staff was not friendly and helpful when we had questions. Customer service would not bring us back! However, the fact that this place is 100% gfree and safe WILL bring us back. They have a large selection of delicious baked goods. A real treat!

    100% gluten free bakery/deli. The croissants were not as fluffy as a gluten eater might be used to but definitely still delicious and a great substitute! The quiche are yummy and my husband loved the sausage rolls. We were in Ottawa for 3 days and went 3 times and will definitely go again the next time we're in the city

    Great baked goods. Loved the croissants and great coffee. However we were pretty disappointed in the eggs Benedict's, cold toast, over poached eggs and small portions. The other tables breakfasts looked amazing so I would go back for sure and try something else.

    100% certified gluten free by the Celiac Association. Why isn't that noted? Awesome food, very affordable, great atmosphere, Lovely proprietors. And right next to the Tea Store on the Market. What more could you want? The only suggestion I would have would be to request that they provide a breakdown as to what is in their food that might cause reactions to other potential allergies because often a Celiac ends up with Celiac and eg dairy or corn allergies as well. I ate here very recently, first time, and the food was excellent. What was not so great was the major reaction I had to the small amount of butter that was included in one of the entree's. This painful experience however was also me forgetting to ask if there was any dairy, soy, or grains not mentioned. However, being newly diagnosed, I think it would have helped me greatly if there were a breakdown of what is in each item...

    My new favourite place to eat in Ottawa. Excellent selection of hot and cold dishes and amazing deserts. 100% Gluten Free!!! You pay by weight so you won't be paying for huge servings you can't eat. Very tasty. We will be going back.

    100% gluten free. Amazing baking - pastries, desserts, cookies. But also an a la carte 'cafeteria' with gourmet options. Lasagna to lamb shanks and lots of salads. Eat in or take out. Outdoor seating too, in nice weather. And did I mention 100% gluten free? No booze.
