    Was sick within an hour of leaving. Food tasted great but never again.

    This place is celiac heaven! All their waffle irons and friends are dedicated for GF only, and their chicken fried waffles are to die for! One of my favorite restaurants!

    They have the BEST selection of gluten free treats; muffins, cookies, coffee cakes, scones, and galettes available for quick pick up. Their gluten free breakfast menu is amazing (I haven't tried their lunch or dinner menus yet). They offer waffles, eggs benedict, breakfast sandwiches, and more, all gluten free. Every single item I've tried has been delicious and even my non-gluten free friends and family love this place. Not to mention the staff is always friendly!

    I usually leave Popover feeling satisfied and having a great meal, unfortunately the last time I went there I left extremely sick. I had a severe allergic reaction from what I believe were the nachos. I have gone to Popover many times without a reaction. You will probably be fine and have a delicious meal, just be careful!

    Great GF options. Was told that on "busy days" they toast in a shared toaster. They order out their GF treats but do house them in the same space as their gluten filled counterparts. A great option as long as you get waitstaff that will talk you through the cross contamination risk. All their waffles are GF!!

    Finally! A local place with fresh, healthy, tasty, clean food! Their GF baked goods are quite good. More importantly, their salads are excellent! My favorite thing are the fried Brussel sprouts on the dinner menu!

    Love the lemon poppyseed muffins. I had to ask multiple times to check that they really are gluten-free!! While they have many gluten-free options they do use wheat flour and it's a shared kitchen.

    I was so thrilled to find this place but it was disappointing, both in quality and being Celiac unfriendly. I experienced really bad cross contamination. the baked goods tasted like they were five days old and I just hate paying good money for old food wrapped in plastic. it's a cute place but they have a lloonngg way to go in the GF department.

    Finally a great GF place in town. Has great breakfast, lunch, and baked pastry items. Everything on the menu can be made GF and the staff is very knowledgable about Celiac's and cross-contamination. Love how they get their food from local farms and everything is so fresh. I have gone here multiple times since it has opened and have loved everything I have tried. Loved their iced coffee and smoothies too! Definitely recommend for a yummy GF lunch or if you're looking for some great tasting GF baked goods.
