    GF French toast! Manager brought it out and they cooked it separately.

    Hit or miss. I live in the neighborhood and have eaten here at least 10 times. I've had a reaction due to CC (likely) once. When the owner/manager is there he comes to confirm your order and deliver the food. He definitely knows how to accommodate, sometimes on off hours he's not there and that's when things get hairy.

    They offer GF bread/toast and wait staff aware of what contains gluten; hash browns are deep fried and veggie hash contains bread crumbs, ask questions and you can get a good meal, but not exactly celiac friendly

    Had to ask about gluten free options but very accommodating and knowledgable. Had to substitute fries for fruit but French toast available

    Waitress confirmed separate prep area and toaster, but I had a moderate reaction as I was finishing the meal. I'm guessing pretty heavy cross-contamination. The restaurant was not very busy at the time I was there, and in contrast to what another reviewer said, the manager did not come to my table to confirm my order. Food tasted good and the service was good, though.

    Very good upscale diner food. They prepare GF food separately and the owner always comes over to confirm the order with his patrons. They make sandwiches on GF bread (Udi's) and use it to make French toast (I recommend the strawberry and chocolate). Prepare for a wait but there is a good turn over rate.
