Wish this place would take some precautions. Ate breakfast here Saturday morning and was sick the rest of the day. Not even a little bit celiac safe. Why bother offering gluten-free? :(
This place was great! Our waitress was very knowledgable about cross contamination and helped me find something safe to eat. I settled on an omelette that was awesome. I avoided the GF pancakes because I felt the risk for cross contamination was too high. My omelette came out wrong and even though the boy who brought it out was very rude, my waitress very quickly corrected the order.
While we love their omlets, braised greens and more main entrées that are gluten-free, preventing cross contamination and sharing detailed allergen ingredients is not their priority. Their gluten-free french toast is tasty, but it shares a non-dedicated grill and the gluten-free toast uses the same toaster as regular bread, this can be seen from the dining area as the kitchen is an open plan. I emailed the restaurant, identified our family as Celiac-positive, and asked about any shared equipment or hidden gluten in their ingredients because my kids' tummies hurt after eating there. I received a somewhat snotty response that only large restaurants are required to disclose that information. Their slogan is "eat like you give a damn" - well, we do, but apparently not all of their staff gives much of a care about customers who are asking for allergen concerns, not trying to steal proprietary information. Also, the wait times for a table are unbearable on the weekends, especially with kids in tow. I advise going to their website for a reservation a few days prior to your visit if you want to try it out.
Delicious food but I get sick every time I eat there. Not severe symptoms but sick from contamination
I had the Swedish Pancakes with Lingonberry Sauce and Lingonberry Butter with fresh berries. The wait staff is very helpful. If you worry about getting berries from the complimentary fruit bar, they will bring you berries from the kitchen in small bowls. Very nice! While I enjoyed being able to eat Swedish Pancakes, I think they should have been more delicate. They were rather dense.
Great spot, however I have had issues w cross contamination. They use the same toaster for regular and GF bread so if you're very sensitive I would steer clear. Yummy food overall.
Nice atmosphere, great, fast service & delicious, good quality food
Delicious! So many gf options, like Swedish pancakes!
Choose from options like rice and tapioca flour Swedish Pancakes and Vegan Banana Pancakes or pick Gluten-Free French Toast made with homemade bread. The options are mouthwatering and wor th the wait. All served with maple syrup.
Amazing GF French toast, GF Swedish pancakes and more!!!! Was Sooo excited to find a great GF breakfast spot!
Excellent!!! Organic, GF, CF options! I had the GF Swedish pancakes and they were excellent!! So thankful to finally have a GF CF breakfast place Be prepared for cross contamination. I just took 2 gluten digest pills and had no problem. I'm celiac and highly sensitive to gluten
Not celiac friendly. #CrossContamination.
MAJOR cross-contamination, but luckily they warned me about it before I ordered. Not as gluten free friendly as they advertise. French toast goes in the same exact batter as the non gluten free version and the toast is toast in the same toast. Seriously disappointed.
Glutened here immediately. Knew it after a few bites. They don't do anything to prevent cross contamination (they warned me not to get the toast or GF pancakes, etc) so I got the hot buckwheat, but was so sick anyway. Should have trusted my instincts and not eaten here at all. 100% not safe for celiacs. Go to Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe instead, they are awesome: separate prep areas and safe delicious food.
Great menu! Great staff! And the food is to die for :) I feel safe eating here.
If you are gluten free in Seattle and don't go here for breakfast you are crazy. Gluten free French toast, pancakes, toast, and it all tastes amazing. And there's a toppings bar with fruit and nuts etc. Sausage and potatoes also all yummy. It's a good thing I don't live nearby, I'd be broke and huge. Oh and the coffee is perfect and served in huge mugs
You know this place is great by the line outside. But come a little earlier to skip that. We have found delightful sumptuous g- free options. Friendly staff, good service.
So good. I was real sad when I took that last bite of my Swedish pancakes. I was warned that they make bread for all of their locations here, so there is a risk of cross-contamination (flour floating in the air and such) but assured me they do all they can to prevent it in other ways. Gf folks can choose from Swedish pancakes, buckwheat pancakes, French toast and vegan banana pancakes. They have a toppings bar for your pancakes and toast which was an awesome touch.
We stopped in for breakfast, once we got there the server did everything to not convince us to stay, including reminding us "you know this is a bakery". The sous chef came out and assured me she could make something safe. I would not recommend this place if your truly celiac.
Good options. Lots of gluten free if you're intolerant. For celiacs there are fewer options but they seem to know gay they're doing. I was very clear about how sensitive I am and how sick I would get. The waiter was great and went through their process with me. No reaction and the pancakes were wonderful. Speak up and you should be fine!
Yay for breakfast options! There is a fantastic breakfast bar (fruits, whipped cream, etc.) with possible contamination issues as it is buffet style, but I tried my best and didn't get any symptoms.The French toast, crepes (special), and porridge are delicious. It's a very loud environment, you might have a long wait (make reservations), but the staff is great and the food is absolutely worth it.
Would give zero stars if I could. Despite "GF" entries on menu, massive cross contamination. I had a long conversation with our server about cross contamination, and all seemed well. He seemed to understand that I was celiac, assured me that eggs would be done in their own pan, etc. Yet, unbeknownst to me, they cut & toasted "GF" toast on the same cutting board and in the same toaster as the normal bread. Fortunately I asked more questions, and didn't eat the toast, but I still left with a really bad feeling.
Great place to eat! Worth the wait (hostess said 45 min wait, we waited 20). Big portion sizes. Most places with a GF option add an up charge and you get a smaller portion, here you have the up charge but get the same (or bigger) portion. Just looking at the menu makes it look expensive, but the portion sizes are worth the price; which makes it about mid range on price. Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is; the sitting area feels like a school cafeteria, with cement floors and the tables packed in tight. It made it really loud, which made me feel like I had to yell across the table.
I was so grateful to order my first non-homemade gluten free pancakes since going gluten free. I got the vegan pancakes- recommended by the waitress as the best syrupy option. They were fluffy and awesome!!! The only problem I had is that my first batch came out undercooked but they made a second fully cooked batch for me and I loved them!
So many gf options. I tried the Buckwheat pancakes and I did not like the taste, but this was my first experience with buckwheat. The waitress helped me select a different dish. I got the crepes with lingonberries and they were amazing!!! Highly recommend for good service and excellent food.
the best gf breakfast i have ever had!!!!! they have gf french toast and pancakes and a few other options (the menu is marked with what items are gf). they have a breakfast bar too where u can top ur pancakes and french toast with loads of fresh berries, maple syrup, and my favorite, creme!!!!!!!!
