The gluten free bread was even smaller that udi's. it's also toasted in the same toaster as the regular bread. I was hoping for the gf French toast they could substitute the almond milk they offer for coffee since I can't have dairy and they said it wasn't a possibility. Definitely disappointed with this place.

Decent food. Nice atmosphere. Staff is NOT celiac knowledgeable. Be aware there is cross contamination in kitchen - I confirmed this on two separate occasions a year apart. They have a shared grill/utensils for all French Toast, including gluten free bread. They toast all their bread in the same toaster. Staff members I spoke with do not understand what celiac is, do not understand contamination. I would not recommend this to celiacs.

Went there for dinner and asked for a gluten free menu. Waitress stated there wasn't one but that most of their food is gluten free...that is usually a red flag for me. In general, if there aren't foods made specifically without gluten at a restaurant, it means they have no clue that the gluten is in their soy sauce, mustard, etc. But I took a chance and ordered the Duck with orange sauce reduction. It was excellent! And gluten free! My husband, who has no problems with gluten ordered the pasta dish and loved it. We are definitely going back.

Wow. Just wow. This place is incredible! I never write reviews, but I made an account just to rate this place. I had the French toast, and it really took me back. Upon the first bite I was instantly a kid again, a time before I ate gluten free. The French toast was actually better in my opinion without the syrup. My girlfriend (who does not eat gluten free) also enjoyed her meal. I really can't recommend this place enough, just go.

Had my first GF French toast which was a very nice treat but it was a little dry so I needed to use lots of syrup. I think it's cause we sat out back on the patio & could have cold too fast. Bacon was crispy and best part of my brunch. I'll go back again to try a sandwich next time.

Good service but the food was subpar. I had the gluten free French toast and it was okay but not the best. My mom and sister got non gluten free food and theirs was only okay as well. The food was also kind of cold by the time we got it. The cafe was cute though.
