Wonderful place. I had the crab Benedict on gf bread. My wife had the Kielbasa scramble without the gravy. We had no gluten issues but neither one of us is celiac. The service was over the top.
After specifically asking if they could make their gluten free pancakes without cross contamination and being told they could, there was still gluten in my pancakes (and while my tongue could not taste it, my small intestine certainly could)
Scrambled eggs have pancake batter in them, and the manager who was our server did not tell us. Bad day for our daughter ☹
I see negative reviews so I thought I'd give my two cents. I decided my best bet was to arrive early (opens at six, we arrived at 7am) to avoid a busy restaurant and dirty griddles and honest mistakes made in the kitchen. I ordered the gf pancakes and some eggs and was told the griddle is cleaned prior to each order. I know I could still get hit but took the risk. Staff was very friendly and kept the coffee flowing. Food was delivered promptly and we never sat waiting around. The pancakes were some of the best I've had, and I live in the gluten free haven of Portland and consider myself a gf foodie. Now, considering this is diner food, my expectations weren't high. My kids wanted to eat here and they aren't gluten free. They were happy. And I didn't have a reaction! A good kitschy diner experience. Cute little gift shop, too.
If you are a highly sensitive Celiac DO NOT EAT HERE. The waitress, who was annoyed she had to serve us at all, said she would get them to cook my breakfast seperately. She did not do so. I was sick within 2 bites and was sick for the last 3 days of my vacation. If you are going south go to Newport to the Nye Beach cafe.
They have gluten free pancakes on the menu, but admit to plenty of cross contamination. How can it be GF if it's contaminated? I also avoid soy and their fry oil is soy. They offered to clean the grill for me. I hope they use the fat from my bacon to cook the rest of my food (Potato pancakes) The waitress almost convinced me to leave. Should have. Had cramps before I left.
May be ok for breakfast but nothing on dinner menu gluten free. Hostess not even sure if they can do gluten free
Pretty much like a Denny's that offers "reduced gluten pancakes" which means gluten free I was told- except it is cooked on the same grill (they did offer to clean it so I gave them 2 stars for that only) so My husband Isnt celiac like me so I was too scared to try them but he did and said they were fine - strawberries were decent
I enjoyed my house recipe gluten free pancakes. We had a nice server and a good time. There is a slight risk of cross contamination, but they do try to be careful.
I truly enjoyed the banana pancakes!
Beware- cross contamination. We were warned of that from our extremely crabby waitress. We seem to get her every time in town. The pancakes are very good IMO. My son had a GF club sandwich and liked it.
Good trashy diner chain food, but no understanding of cross contamination. It was a great place to take my folks, but it would have made my celiac wife sick.
Pancakes were great! Service was SO-so. They were really busy and we were ignored a lot, but over all they were good!
Basic but good gf breakfast food. I had pancakes and bacon with no negative after effects.
Really good! Pancakes tasted like regular ones so we were a bit worried! But they were just really yummy GF ones! GF toast was ok. Also had eggs, hash browns and bacon. No issues at all.
Great food for breakfast. My daughter had pancakes and ate them all up.
Was happily surprised to find that they have gluten-free pancakes, which are quite light and fluffy! These are their own recipe according to the server. They also serve gf toast, which is store-bought, but nice to have as an option! Server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Turned what could have been a miserable "no" filled breakfast into a great family meal.
Waitress reassured me that griddle and cooking utensils would be wiped down. Pancakes, syrup, eggs, & bacon gluten free.
They offer gluten free pancakes, toast, and bread, but it is not a celiac friendly kitchen. Everything is cooked in the same place
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Not Much
Technically they have GF options. I got pancakes, bacon and eggs. I found the pancakes to be terrible... not worth eating. They were flavorless, except a bitter flavor like too much baking soda in the recipe. And soggy in texture.
