$20 for 3 1/2 pieces of gf french toast, which was your standard gf bread. Who cuts a piece of bread in half??!? That's a "full order". Not safe for celiacs: not guaranteed free of cross contamination. They had gf pancakes, french toast, toast. Waiter wasn't super knowledgeable. We were hoping for a cute breakfast spot... This isn't it.

I ordered GF pancakes. They were very good and I didn't get sick! The waitress was very understanding of my gluten allergy.

I’ve had good and tasty experiences several times here. I do ask multiple questions and some follow questions about possible gluten cross contamination because I am incredibly sensitive. However the servers having always been super helpful and have clarified with the chef when not sure of an answer. I have not gotten sick when doing so. My kids love their gluten free pancakes.

I was told they cook all the gluten free food on the same surfaces they cook their normal food. I chose not to take the risk as I have celiac disease.

Delicious cream cheese and lox omelette with GF French toast. My server didn’t know that they prepare GF food separately, but once I told her that the hostess told me about that, she checked with the kitchen and was very helpful. Will definitely go back again.

I went here yesterday with my boyfriend, as when I wasn’t GF we used to go to the Kingston location and absolutely loved the service and food. I saw the GF pancakes and was ecstatic to finally have food I used to eat that I cannot find GF anywhere else. I asked the waiter what the protocol was for preparing GF and if the chef changes the utensils and pans for GF since I have a severe allergy. Right away he said they cannot use separate pans and everything is cooked in the same dishes so there is cross contamination for every dish. I asked him to ask the chef, he came back and said there was nothing they could do. Wildly disappointed and won’t be eating back here. The staff is very uneducated and non accommodating. Left right after that as that was a better choice than getting sick.

Terrible experience. Went here at a recommendation and because the menu has GF options. Restaurant does not observe GF protocols and when asked if my food could be cooked separately, on foil, etc. they refused. They should not list themselves as GF if no accommodations are made, as all that exists are gluten free products and no interest in safety for those that are gluten free, Celiac, etc.. Don’t waste your time here. At least they didn’t charge for the soda when I left.

Great place with a lot of options! I got a turkey burger with a gluten free bun with a side salad (fries do NOT have dedicated fryer) I know other locations are not good with cross contamination so be careful but many gluten free options are available.
