    The food was really good but the guy taking my order didn't know anything. I had to speak to someone (maybe the manager?) who actually knew what I was talking about and did a really good job. He separated everything and made sure there was no cross contamination

    Gluten Free sandwich was awesome didn't get it toasted (it was warmed a little) but was really yummy and nice to have more of a fresh bread feel.

    Had delicious sandwich on gluten free bread. they asked if I was celiac or if it was a preference, which tells me they understand and will go to greater means to avoid cross contamination.

    The GF bread (their own recipe) is delicious and they take great caution to prevent cross contamination. Great place, delicious food and safe for Celiacs.

    The GF sandwich tastes great. 5 stars because I did not get sick. The only negative is that I had to buy two sandwiches to fill up, which is a little pricey for lunch for a hungry dude.

    Every person that works there is super helpful and very well informed about celiac disease and how to keep cross contamination from happening. It's one of the only places in Santa Barbara this experienced with gluten free that isn't a dedicated facility. The sandwiches are very good and staff very friendly.

    The honey gobble was the best sandwich I've ever had since being diagnosed celiac 4 years ago. They told me they were preparing it separately so there will be a slightly longer wait which I didn't mind at all, it was reassuring if anything. You can buy the bread in loaves too if you like it, all home made!

    This place was amazing! The service and the attention to cc was incredible. They were very friendly and listed off the few items on the menu I couldn't eat and then offered up some of their own recommendations on great sandwiches. I would absolutely go back!

    Found this restaurant on this site. Called ahead to confirm their reviews and the adherence to safety regarding cross contamination. Very friendly, put me at ease with their steps to avoid cc. When we arrived explained how they set up to ensure safety. Their bread is amazing!! They make their own and sell it by the loaf too. Sandwiches were unreal! Most items except for three or four are all safe to eat. Everything made fresh to order. Great stop! Both gluten free and non gf eaters very satisfied with their order!

    Amazing sandwiches, pickles and roasted tomatoe soup. Daughter has celiac so it was nice to find an entry that made our entire family happy. Their GF bread was ABSOLTELY the best sandwich bread we have tried this far. Highly recommended!

    Amazing service. Though there are gluten-ness options, they have a separate prepping station for all gluten free goodies and are very knowledgable about celiac and its limitations. Plus, they have their own specialty gf bread that blew my mind. Above all, they cared and I felt safer knowing that they cared about me as a human.

    I've eaten here so many times because their food is so good and I've never been sick. Because I'm highly sensitive to ANY cross-contamination, I know they take great care with GF preparation. They're super friendly, to boot!

    Don't always have gluten free, went there and said they have the gluten free delivery in three days, then suggested I have their breaded chicken. Can't count on it.

    Very gluten-free friendly. They take precautions to limit cross contamination like changing gloves and using different pans to heat the sandwiches. The guys said you can even buy loaves of their GF bread if you let them know in advance.

    We loved it! Great tasting bread and sandwiches and very nice and knowledgeable staff. I have additional allergies and they got on the phone to check the ingredients of the gf bread with the local bakery they get it from. We would absolutely go back.

    Great place to eat that take precautions to eliminate cross contamination. They put wax paper down and use it in the oven too. The bread tastes great and is good size not tiny like most gluten free bread.
