The menu is not labeled and they have GF bread and can make French toast, eggs Benedict. They were very mindful of my GF need and prepared everything special to minimize cross contamination. They did not toast my bread or cook my food on the spared grill. I got an omelette, chicken sausage, fruit, and toast. It was good.

They offer a number of gluten friendly options but almost everything is cooked on a shared grill and I was there's always a possibility of cross contamination. The first server didn't have a good understanding of what could be gf so she called over another server.

The safest options were either the Cobb Salad or one of the omelets with a side of double fruit. They did communicate my gluten intolerance to the kitchen.

The gf allergen menu is available online.

The service was good but the mimosa flight was very watered down. I had the gluten free french toast it was very bland and I ended up having a bad reaction most of the day. I am not sure there were any measures to prevent cross-contamination.

The only thing that was gluten free with no cross contamination were scrambled eggs, a side salad, or a piece of bread that couldn’t be toasted. I got scrambled eggs and tested them with my Nima Sensor. It said they contained gluten. I left hungry.

Best for Breakfast/Brunch. A few “lunch” items. Please review the allergy menu online for GF options. There are a lot of options. Had The Eggs Blackstone - Applewood-smoked bacon & grilled tomato served over gluten-free toast or grilled tomato, topped with two poached eggs, finished with hollandaise. Enjoyed it. The establishment was busy around lunch time and I would assume they would be very busy during breakfast.

There is indoor and outdoor dining.

Separate gf menu, you just have to pull it open on your phone (no paper copy)! The Florentine omelet was great, you get gf toast instead of biscuits! Coffee was so-so and the service was quite hectic considering it’s a super busy spot. Overall though, food was safe and lots of options for celiacs!

The gluten free menu is available on their website. There are a good amount of gluten free options and the server was able to let the kitchen know I had Celiac. Got the “eggs blackstone” which was basically eggs benedict with bacon—super delicious meal overall!

Has gluten free options. French toast was ok. I’d recommend sticking with something that is naturally gluten free. Service is is pretty good.

My server, Ronnie, was fantastic. Helped identify on the menu what was safe and how it could be prepared. Fryer is not safe and of course neither is the toaster. She did offer Udi's bread as a GF option, but couldn't toast it safely. I really appreciate the attention to detail, substitutions offered and over all accommodation. I chose thw omelet with side salad, side of bacon amd swapped fruit for the potatoes. Felt very good about it. There was no wait at this location during the early morning, opting to sit outside.

While they have a gluten friendly menu, they aren’t celiac safe. The server told us there is a cloud of biscuit flour in the air that causes cross contamination so they only recommend ordering fruit if you’re celiac. Decided to give a breakfast sandwich a try but it tested strongly positive for gluten.

Coffee was excellent.

Discovered the Ruby Slipper in Pensacola a few weeks ago, despite the Mobile location being 20 minutes from my home in Mobile. What a great find!

I built my own omelette with shrimp, mushrooms with a side of avocado, GF toast (Udi’s), and grits without cheese. Delicious!

Took a bite of my dining companions GF salmon omelette. Next time I’ll ask for some smoked salmon in my omelette to change things up.

Even though they have a gluten friendly menu, they do not respect “I have an allergy, please ask the kitchen to take special precautions.” They made my toast wrong (made it on their biscuit), then transferred my wrongly made meal onto gluten free bread… long story short, I found biscuit in my food.
