    GF pancakes and waffle are made on same grill. What is the point of that? You can order an omelette that is baked on safe surface, but the potatoes are also same grill and there is no GF toast. Coffee is very good as was the Mediterranean omelette.

    The gluten free pancakes were AMAZING! This place is a gem. Definitely check it out. The server was also very friendly and knowledgeable about GF. Best meal we have had in San Diego!!!

    Server was very helpful and the Gluten free pancakes were so good I had to verify they were GFree! Incredible they can make GFree pancakes taste so good.

    Knowledgeable staff! Gluten free waffles and pancakes available. Be prepared to wait as it is a small restaurant.

    The gluten free pancakes are really good. Other reviews say a long wait. We got here at 7 am and didn't have to wait at all. Service was great. For 3 people, it was $63 + tip.

    Busy place! Had to wait in line long to be seated. Staff was great. The gluten free waffle was ok - on the doughy side

    Line was WAY too long (45+ people) so we went across the street to Skybound, which was great. Food must be good, but did not get to try it so 3 stars.

    Not a Celiac Friendly restaurant. I wanted Gf waffles that stated Gluten Free in menu and staff indicated that they are made in same waffle maker as regular waffles and pancakes made on same grill. I appreciate the waiter telling me. Wheat free but not gluten free.

    Went at 7:30 a.m. The place had no wait & plenty of staff. I ordered the GF strawberry waffle & it was amazing! Fresh strawberries not a compote or canned crud. My boyfriend had an omelette that was huge!

    They have both gluten free pancakes and gluten free waffles and you can add any topping you want. I'm sure there's some amount of cross contamination, but the pancakes were almost like real pancakes. Best I've had in a while!

    Really tasty gf pancakes and Belgian waffles, plus the best coffee ever. their omelettes are delicious too. Always excellent service but get there early because there's always a line.

    I have yet to get a gf waffle or pancake that is as good as a wheat-filled one, but it was still pretty tasty. I ordered a waffle with bananas and enjoyed it. The service was excellent, too.

    This restaurant does NOT have GF waffles or pancakes. 'GF waffles' are made in the same iron as the regular ones. The pancakes are made on the same griddle. DO NOT go here if you are concerned about cross contamination. I left as they clearly don't know anything about gluten and cross contamination.
