Wonderful spot, excellent food and a warm, passionate staff. Their hours are a bit odd, but I cannot recommend this place more! I especially love their pancakes and burger. Looking forward to exploring the rest of the menu!

I use to go here ALL the time but suddenly, recently.. I started getting glutened when I would eat here. Like soooooo swollen, I just ate there this weekend because I didn't want to believe it. But yeah, right after I ate, my stomach swelled up like I was 6 months pregnant ughhhhhhh been sick all week. Sucks, I looked at her menu and it looks like she has "oat loaf" bread....pretty sure those oats have some sort of contamination or something there does. Idk but yeah, sucks. But it's a great place if you only have gluten sensitivity. For sensitive celiacs, beware.

We got the double decker burger, curry bowl, and a smoothie! All of the food was amazing except the burger patty they make in house (that could have just been me being picky). All food is gluten free and vegan!!

Dedicated gf! Vegan, as well. Cute, casual little place with some outdoor/sidewalk seating. I had the polenta bowl w/ chili, and it was very good & hearty. They also have smoothies, juice. Friendly service :)

Amazing food! Everything is vegetarian and it's 100% GF. I also have a corn and dairy intolerance and they were able to accommodate. The food I got was really good! I loved how fresh everything is here and it makes you feel good after eating, not heavy.

Absolutely loved the food! You must stop and eat here! They have the best cinnamon rolls I have had since my celiac diagnosis almost 10 years ago. Bonus points that the owner is super sweet. We were in town on a business trip, otherwise I would eat here regularly.

Decent gluten free offerings, but some dishes lack flavor, depth. Limited condiments-you must ask for salt and pepper. Another drawback are their super high prices. Some of us need to eat gluten free for health reasons, but the $25 total meal price just about gave me a heart attack.

Super excited to find a dedicated gf restaurant. I got the chili burger (subbed avocado for the cheese) ; good, but not great, would've liked some onion to kick it to a bit. But the coleslaw was the bomb!! The addition of a bit of cilantro was genius. Tracy, the owner, was super nice and told me it was adapted from her grandpa's recipe to make it vegan. Hubby got pear French toast. He enjoyed it; I thought it had a cinnamon roll flavor and was really good. The tempeh bacon is good of you like tempeh - I do, hubby doesn't. Friendly, helpful staff.

I had the French toast and my friend had the biscuits and gravy. Both were large portions and just delicious. We also grabbed a donut and cinnamon bun to go. Very nice staff. Felt very safe eating here.

LOVED Powerplant. The service was great. Friendly and patient with our questions as we had to avoid gluten, soy and corn. The food was amazingly delicious!! It's hard to find with vegan gluten free food that's tasty. I had the almond coconut pancakes with fruiting blueberry vinegar syrup. The absolutely BEST pancakes I've EVER had!! My son enjoyed a veggie burger. We will be back!

This super friendly neighborhood store front spot is completely GF, combining vegetarian and vegan options with a little off-veggie flair with salmon and some organic cheeses. Along with their great menu and Vegan Happy Hour weekdays 4-6, they feature an extensive superfood smoothie bar. The food is delicious and creative. I will definitely return. Try the GF French Toast with poached pears and walnuts with a nice cup of coffee.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. Every ingredient is delicious, from the local bakery baked bread to the perfectly smoked tempeh bacon. The entire restaurant is gluten free and most of the items can be made vegan if that's your cup of tea. I can't speak highly enough about this cut little cafe tucked away on Pico. If you're in the mood for a delicious sandwich or a refreshing smoothy, this place is a must-try, regardless of whether or not you're on a gluten free diet.

Fantastic find. Everything is gluten free. They have salmon and eggs, but aside from that the menu is 90% vegan. They have fantastic smoothies and sandwiches. Their desserts come from Rising Hearts. All of their menu looks really interesting.
