The waffle cones are GF here at Republic along with the cookies and cream flavor (both have guar gum if that’s ok for you). I also confirmed with the owner (who responded very promptly through website “contact us” link) at the time of this writing that the ice cream does NOT have carrageenan which is an ingredient that makes me as sick as gluten so that was a relief. My family came to Republic three times during our vacation this week (2 of us have celiac) and we never got sick. My celiac son had the waffle cones twice. Delicious, rich creamy ice cream! My favorite was the chocolate chocolate chip and the strawberry flavors.

The GF cookies and cream ice cream in the GF house-made waffle cone was INCREDIBLE. Pricey, but so worth it.

Tips


Celiac

This is the owner. I have Celiacs. All of our ice cream, including our cookies and cream, is gluten-free. So are our waffle cones. Our creamery is a completely gluten-free facility. The regular cones still have gluten. Our staff have been trained to minimize any cross-contamination.

Visitor beware… today, no gluten free waffle cones. Which we only found out after standing in line for 20 minutes. Made a special trip to Sullivan’s Island, in traffic. Tried to call ahead but they didn’t answer their phones. Maybe because only one person was working. They also didn’t have their soft serve. Cake cones not gf. All Ice Cream is. Changed gloves for my daughter’s nut allergy and used new scoop. The flavor of the ice cream was fine, but of the three I sampled from my family, nothing wowed me.

I visited today with my two daughters, one with celiac, and couldn’t be happier. To start, the entire facility is GF and anyone saying otherwise is just wrong. We all tried the waffle cones and really enjoyed them. It’s also the first time I’ve seen an ice cream shop offer them in small and large sizes, a nice touch. The strawberry ice cream had big chunks of fresh berries in it and was tasty. The chocolate was pretty sweet but nicely creamy. Everyone liked their various flavors.

Service was super nice as well. We will be visiting again soon.

The ice cream is delicious (I had mint chip) and they offer gluten free cones. The server washed her hands and a scoop without me asking when I requested a gluten free cone.

Staff was knowledgeable and kind. They offer Joy gf ice cream cones and the ice cream is all GF except for the cookies and cream... but they use the same scoop for everything. I wanted to order a butter pecan sundae, but was warned that that is right next to the cookies and cream so there was a major cross contamination. Staff recommended the soft serve if I wanted to be safe.

My husband order a soft serve sundae, but I didn’t bother.

They have gf waffle cones and they state all ice cream is gf. They do have regular cones, so be careful. I ate ice cream a few times from there without an issue. It was delicious and a nice treat while traveling.

Went twice in three days. Delicious and dedicated GF including all cones! Staff was very friendly, could not give sample/tastes due to Covid though. Smallish selection of ice creams…maybe 8? Still worth it!!
