Ordered a savory crepe, sweet crepe, and the Nutella hot chocolate. All were delicious! The staff is very knowledgeable and aware about allergies, and when you order GF they will ask you if it’s an allergy or preference. If you say allergy it will be prepared in a dedicated work space that they first wipe down just in case, using separate tools, and batter that is stored separate from the wheat batter. Took a little longer than my friend who is not GF due to their extra sanitizing process, but it’s a small price to pay. A bit pricey, but will definitely return.
Dedicated areas for gluten free and nut free. They always double check and can even hold part of your order if you have a meal and dessert. Very careful with allergens and their nutella buckwheat crépe is to die for!!! Wish I lived in brookline so I could come here every day! OMG LOVE!!!
From the owner: "We make a gluten-free buckwheat crepe batter that can be substituted in any of our crepe recipes. We use a very light buckwheat flour that we found to taste the most similar to our regular recipe, and it maintains a similar color and relatively similar texture. Guests with allergies to gluten need only mention their allergy to us when ordering, and we make the crepe on a crepe iron that we reserve only for crepes with allergies (it is off to the side and out of sight from the counter). A separate set of tools is used, and the staff member preparing crepes on this iron changes their gloves. We confidently serve our gluten-allergic guests in this way, assuring prevention of cross-contamination. Come see us soon!"
Best crepes in Boston! They have gf buckwheat batter and cook them on a separate griddle that is in a dedicated space. Only reason I give 4 stars and not 5, is I ALWAYS end up waiting 10-15 minutes longer for my food than the no-gf people. Frustrating when you’re in a group! Very good none the less! Also the Nutella frozen hot chocolate is BOMB!
This as my first stop after arriving from Florida and was pleasantly surprised. The reviews are all true, they have a separate space for cooking the gluten free crepes which was very comforting and when the crepe was brought over they started it was gluten free which is always a nice reassurance that the kitchen is communicating well. I got the French Toast Crepe and added 2 fried eggs on top. My husband got the Chicken with Pesto Crepe gluten free so I could eat it. He loved it! The employee stated they just changed there flour to a rice based flour, it was tasty to me. I got a bit of a stomach ache after we finished out meal, but it could of been from the coffee because I am sensitive to some brands. Sometimes I get that stomach ache from cross contamination but it’s so similar to how other foods effect me that it’s hard to tell the source...no major celiac crisis or anything but thought I would note it. Looking forward to trying it again!
Honesrly, amazing. The food was incredible! We ordered savory crepes and they were delicious, did not taste gluten free at all! It did take a bit longer for the food to come out, but the waiter informed us they were cooking the crepes on a separate frying pan. They gave us a $10 gift card for our long wait. Will totally come back any time!!
This place is amazing! Food is absolutely delicious! They are extremely aware and careful when preparing food for people with gluten allergies. My girlfriend has celiacs and after we ordered I was wondering why a few people had gotten their food before us, I asked if they can check on it. They apologized and said it took a little longer because they were cleaning the grill . This was an extremely humbling and enjoyable experience. They were very busy but took time to make sure everything was safely prepared. I would recommend time and time again! Thank you!
What a find! They have a large selection of GF offerings, and use a special gluten allergy button on the register to flag Celiac orders. GF items are made in a separate area of the kitchen using completely separate equipment. I'll be back here again! And again and again!
I had a great experience at this place. The food is absolutely delicious and I really appreciated being asked if gluten free was a preference or an allergy. They even have a separate button in their computer system to make sure the people preparing the food know to cook it on separate grills. Definitely worth it!!
Had a really great experience here. I ordered crepes with the gluten-free mix and told them I had celiac. There was a bit of a delay with my order because they needed to make a new batch using fresh equipment to prevent cross contamination, and they told me they didn't want to bring out food that could make me sick. I really appreciated that they took the time to double check everything, and the crepes were well worth the wait!
Food tasty, delicious, and seems to be safe. Super crowded & EXTREMELY small. A party of five was very hard to seat. Long wait for food due to shared griddle. VERY COLD in March. Had to eat with coats on!! Had to bus own dishes. NOTE WELL: TABLES ARE NOT CLEANED BETWEEN PATRONS SO GLUTEN-TABLE CONTAMINATION IS A REAL THREAT. ENSURE YOUR UTENSILS ARE PLACED ON NAPKINS. one $ seems to be a lie. Most expensive breakfast we've had in ages. They expect you to share tables with strangers. ALSO - No restroom (so if you have removable braces you have a problem :-) or if you get gluten.)
This place is so good! The buckwheat batter tasted great with both savory and sweet crepes, just tell the cashier that you have a gluten allergy and you should be all set. They have so many great combinations to try. The biggest downside to this place is that it's pretty small and gets VERY crowded on weekends. I came here at maybe 2 pm on a Sunday and it was completely full. If it's busy you may have to be a little aggressive about grabbing a table when one opens up. But they also can box crepes up to go if you don't want to wait!
No one batted an eye when I told them I had a gluten allergy. I ordered a Lilli's crepe, and the ingredients were fresh and yummy. The buckwheat crepe had a very good consistency, though it was not quite the same sweetness as crepes I remember from the past. If only I was in this area more often, I could see this being a regular place to visit.
not sure whether they have dedicated heat pad or how they'd clean between regular crepes and GF crepes to avoid cross contamination, but they do offer GF batter for a surcharge ($1?). good is pricey but good. seating is limited and place is crowded. we ordered it to go but got seats towards the end; staff was quick to accommodate and polite.
