They were so kind! They let me know all Flavors that are gluten free. They changed scoop, gloves and went to back for new buckets to prevent cross contamination. They came back out a little later than the rest of our non-Gf order, due to precautions. The employees smiled and were very understanding and accommodating.

Very accommodating. I was able to tell the servers I had celiac disease and they went to the back to new ice cream containers for samples and serving. There are also very good vegan options as well!

The long line moved quickly and we were easily accommodated. I told the server we were celiac and it was no problem for her to scoop ours from the back in a fresh container. I only had a bite but the salted caramel was amazing!

The best vegan ice cream I’ve ever had. The mint chip was so creamy and decadent that it was impossible to tell the difference between the non vegan ice cream.

You have the option to get your scoops in a bowl and watch them prepare all of the orders so I knew there wasn’t any cross contamination with the waffle cones or ice cream containing gluten.

They ask every customer if you have any allergies. Had no problem asking them to scoop from the back to avoid cross contamination. They were very accommodating.

What a cute and fun place! The one worker not only asked another about the GFDF ice cream options (that were clearly listed) but he also went over and got the ingredients list to make SURE my daughter could have it! They are absolutely mindful and helpful when it comes to eating there w allergies. My daughter LOVED the Mint Chip! No reaction!

Salt and Straw was AMAZING!!! I went in on Saturday with a group and ordered last. The server was aware that I was unable to eat gluten, so he went in the back grabbed a new scoop, opened a new pint of LAVENDER HONEY ice cream which was incredible and had no problems at all, everyone enjoyed!!

They have a set up for allergies—new scoops, newly opened pint, etc. Seemed very safe.
