Excellent 100% gluten free menu. Polenta with chicken and the cheesecake are particularly good! Takeout and dine in options available.

VERY limited menu. Breakfast choice are Breakfast taco or muffin Flavor was good, but very small. $5 each. Coffee was so bad we poured it out in parking lot! They do NOT take cash. A 7% up charge (PPE)🙄

I walked in and was told “we don’t allow gluten in the building.” My heart was ALIVE with this menu! I was almost overwhelmed by the number of options and not having to incessantly make sure the waiter knew to avoid cross contamination. I had the crispy fish tacos and they were amazing.

10/10 for others with celiac 💛

Piknik was so refreshing as a celiac! I could order anything that I wanted. I even bonded with the server who was also a celiac. I ordered the avocado toast for brunch which tasted great. I will say the portions are very small and the prices are high so this wouldn't be an everyday place, and make sure to get enough food to fill you up! We shared the chips and queso as a table which were actually dairy free as well! My friends are not gluten free but they really enjoyed what they ordered. I do recommend, just be ready to spend $$ for a little portion!!

Had the gf brussel sprouts along with a juice and a shot. If you’re looking for healthy, this is the spot. *had pick up only with a limited menu*

Just returned and dined on the patio. It was so awesome. Had the Chicken Fried Chicken, which was amazing. My husband had the breakfast tacos, he’s not Celiac and thought they were good. I’d definitely recommend!

This restaurant is amazing!!! It was so good I went here several times within my short trip. Everything is gluten free and the staff is super friendly. I highly recommend the salted caramel banana pancakes, the everything bagel toast, the french toast, and the chicken tenders. I personally was not a big fan of the avocado toast. Definitely make sure to come here if you can.

Tried this place out based on reviews. I have Celiac along with dairy and fish allergies. Conferred with waiter and ordered chicken without the brushing sauce and a modification of a sweet potato/veggie combo to replace mashed potatoes that have dairy. Hour later ended up really sick. Not sure exactly what it was that got me. Suspicious it may have been a gluten reaction since usually my reaction to dairy is more delayed. Will never know for sure tho.

One of the best gf df restaurants I’ve ever been to. I often debate making a return trip to Austin just to come back here. When speaking with the bartender he told me they do not even allow guests to bring outside food in even to their take out area so there is absolutely no cross contamination. Great wine list as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

YES. 100% dedicated gluten free facility. (also soy free) I had an AMAZING meal. I got the chicken thighs with mashed potatoes and asparagus, and an ice cream sandwich for dessert. It was so nice to be able to sit down and order whatever I wanted off of the menu. The wait staff was very nice. They were alittle busy so I would say go early. I will say that if you order the mac & cheese, it's a very small portion. it is not "sharable" as the menu suggests.

Just go here. We have multiple food allergies between us- gluten, dairy, eggs, and sodium phosphates (a preservative in a lot of junk) and eating out is not only a challenge but also can be terrifying when it comes to your kids health. This place is a Godsend. Entire place is gluten free. Coffee options are amazing with choices of coconut milk or cashew for the dairy free crowd too. The sourdough rice bread is TO DIE FOR. My kids gobbled up the cassava pancakes and the sugar free bacon. All condiments are homemade and incredible. No preservatives here. Asked for stevia for my coffee and sure enough she promptly brought over a few packets of organic stevia. Ghee available for pancakes. Even the hot sauce they had was out of this world. Our breakfast for four before tip was $70, so not cheap, but worth every darn penny. I peeked at the lunch menu and there were Gf Df chicken tenders for kids- so hard to find things like that when you're traveling with kids! Thank you Picnik!

Probably the best meal I had while visiting Austin. Came in for breakfast, and immediately wished I had an extra day to cone back and eat lunch there. I always love a 100% gluten free restaurant, but this one also had great flavors and ingredients that make for a really tremendous meal. If I ever make it back to Austin, I will return here on day 1!

Forget that Picnik is gluten free—this was one of the top five meals I’ve ever had in Austin, bar none. Flavor, quality and Innovation stacks up with Fixe, Barley Swine, Salty Sow and Uchiko. The cocktails were creative and generously mixed. And if you do happen to eat Gluten Free you’re in for a great experience! Ask for Amanda and tip her well.

Believe the hype. My family is a mix of Celiac and gluten-eating, vegetarian and omnivore...and we all ate VERY well here. And massive bonus points for all-day breakfast, allowing us to feast on thick-cut berry French toast and avocado toast with poached egg, even at 7pm. Entire menu is GF so there’s zero worry. Know that it gets VERY crowded, even weeknights, so plan accordingly.
