I’ve been celiac for about 12 years. I have breakfast once a week at the place and have never gotten sick or received a dish that wasn’t gluten free. They take care of making sure my toast is separate from other orders and everyone on the waitstaff is knowledgeable about gluten free items. Same holds true for lunch time.

Not gluten free. The waffles are cooked on the same waffle iron. The griddle that cooks regular pancakes cooks gluten free pancakes. Same thing with everything else. Eggs are cooked with pancakes.

Lots of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items, including a surprising number of things that were both. Got cheese fries and pancakes; both were tasty (the pancakes had a little too much tapioca start haha of xantham gum, but without it, I wouldn’t have been sure they were GF, so not mad about that). Nothing fancy or flashy, but tasty and celiac safe!

I love this place! My go-to is the gluten free pancakes with chocolate chips and banana. Last time I got the Full Monte with GF toast and bacon, it was delicious. I’ve never had any reactions or issues and I’m a sensitive Celiac.

One of my favorite gf breakfast places! I always get the gf pancakes with bananas & chocolate chips. My boyfriend has tried them & says he prefers the gf to the regular pancakes.

Ordered the gf waffle and bacon. Tasted almost too good to be true. My reactions started about 30 minutes after my first bite (which is typical). It was probably one of the most violent glutenings I’ve had since immediately after diagnosis. Staff seemed knowledgeable but clearly something was lacking. Wouldn’t take a chance again

Gluten free options available. They also make gluten free bread in-house, therefore you can have any of the sandwiches gluten free. They also have gluten free breakfast.

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.

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!

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.

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.
