The only reason why I was told it was safe was because I was the first one in the restaurant. Taste was truly nothing spectacular, pretty bland honestly. The waitress and manager were super nice though. They have "gluten friendly" items, or so they said, due to non dedicated toaster or fryer. So yes, it's gluten friendly, but not friendly to those that what to be gluten free. It's ok, I probably won't return.

Very well-informed staff! The menu does have a few slight markings errors (waffles are marked as Gluten free but are made in the same waffle maker as the gluten waffles) but the staff was educated enough to tell me what was safe. I had pancakes with sweet cream, eggs, sausage and grits and it was all delicious!

This place was a treat! Blaine, our server, was AWESOME. He went above & beyond to make our breakfast special. Their GF pancakes are something else - light & fluffy, not grainy at all, you couldn’t tell they were GF! The vanilla custard we got the pancakes with was dreamy - not too sweet. I’ll definitely be back before I head home!

Absolutely Wonderful!! I’ve been here 4 times in last 3 weeks. Have never gotten sick. Management is open and honest and sooo helpful. Unfortunately I overheard a guest getting upset bc management let them know that it’s not a dedicated celiac kitchen YET. They don’t advertise that they are, I told them I am grateful that they are straight forward and honest. I think most ppl dealing with food allergies/intolerances would agree.

Very good breakfast, 2 eggs, sausage, home fries, 4 small gf pancakes. No issues. Waitress very knowledgeable. They do upcharge for gf pancakes and the portion is much smaller than the equivalent in non gf (which was to much food).

Had a lot of GF options marked on the menu! The waffle maker was shared so no waffles if you’re sensitive to cross contamination. Staff was knowledgeable if you said you had an allergy and marked it as an “allergy” on your order. Will definitely be going back!

We stopped in after seeing positive reviews on Google. Those reviews were an understatement. Almost everything on the menu was able to be gluten free, my son had GF choc chip waffles and sausage. I had a GF BLT with hash browns. Everything was amazing. The manager serve red our plates and everything was bright and clean inside. Cannot recommend them enough, we will be back!

This breakfast place was truly an extraordinary experience! Almost everything on the menu had a gf option and it was clearly marked with a GF. I ordered eggs, hash browns, and gf waffles! Even though they were clearly gf and different from the normal waffles, you could not tell by taste that’s for sure! They were absolutely delicious! My gf friend ordered the Reese’s pancakes and said they were absolutely scrumptious! We will totally be coming back here during our vacation.

You will not believe it’s gluten free, but it is! The owner has celiac disease and therefore you will find so many GF options to enjoy. They are very careful about cross contamination and marking down allergies. Are there twice with no issues. Portions are HUGE!

I ordered a side of bacon and a side fruit. They accommodated no strawberries which was nice. As I got to the bottom of the fruit bowl, there was a piece of bread. Totally devastating. I brought it to someone’s attention. They did nothing to rectify the situation.

I'm not sure if the previous posters didn't ask questions, but this place is absolutely not safe for celiacs. We spoke to the owners wife and were advised that the pancakes and waffles are cooked on shared equipment. We couldn't even order hash browns because the skillet is shared. We were advised that the only thing they could do is clean the skillet off with water. They have Udi's bread, but don't have a dedicated toaster. We were told numerous times that there is likely flour in the air in the kitchen and that there is absolutely no dedicated space for anything GF. We risked it and got the Egg Scramble bowl and were promised they would attempt precautions but nothing was promised. The menu even says right on it that there's little they can do to control cross contamination. No dedicated fryer. If you are sensitive, beware.

On the positive side, she was very knowledgeable and friendly and invited us back on a slower day so they could try and make arrangements for us (it was very busy when we went). The food we got was delicious. Will update if I get sick.
