    Nice to have many gluten free options for breakfast however it's also nice to have quality and good flavor. This place was not satisfactory. I too got the french toast though. Didn't get the pancakes. Guess I should have? Every french toast will likely pale in comparison to what I get at Plum On Park and I have two spots w great waffles to compare to.

    I went here based on the reviews and from my point of view I'm not sure why people rated their food so well. I only got the gluten free French toast so I can only comment on that, but it wasn't good. Tasted like cardboard so I drowned it in butter and maple syrup to taste somewhat edible.

    Absolutely delicious food, I get the gf French toast and a side of home fries every time. Great, knowledgeable staff and excellent service every time.

    This place is amazing! They have GF waffles, pancakes and French toast! I had the French toast and it was yummy. They also have almond and soy milk options and fresh squeezed juices. I wish I lived closer!

    It's a far drive for me, but worth it! So many GF and vegan options! Pancakes, waffles and French toast!

    Amazing, chewy, hot huge GF waffles that are also vegan (AWESOME since I'm Dairy free as well). Come during the week if you can to beat the crowds!

    Amazing GF breakfast and lunch options. Even some GF vegan options. Usually a wait on the weekends, but the lines are there for a reason (there's a reason this place is so popular!) and move really quickly.

    To start off the atmosphere in this place is awesome. The decor is pretty cool and the service was great. Now to the food, the food was great I had the DADDY-O and was told that they had a dedicated fryer for the hash brown. I had it with the French toast which was really good. All in all I'll give the food 8 out of 10 and the service a 10. You won't regret going here.

    Food has gone downhill over the years. Consistently slow service. I now go to a locally owned joint on the other end of Park Ave... disappointed this place used to be good.

    Wonderful French toast made on homemade bread. Waffle was also delicious and huge! GF breakfast sausage and bacon.

    All around great restaurant. Not as many gf options as other places, but almost everything is made on site. They use quality ingredients and the staff is great about meeting gf needs.
