The tea was lovely sitting on the garden terrace this morning. Was disappointed to learn the waffles are not Gf :( but did have a WONDERFUL China pudding w fruit, honey & candied nuts that was well worth it. Not an everyday spot... 21$ breakfast for one pre tip.
Great sandwich with gluten-free bread; however, it was toasted and that toasting probably happened on a shared surface. Next time I will have the gluten-free waffles, which my server said were definitely cooked on a dedicated surface. They don't even serve non-gluten-free waffles!
I was pleasantly surprised to see gluten-free and/or vegetarian options called out on the food menu. The server was careful to ask about specific food sensitivities once I mentioned the gluten issue.The only downside is Samovar tends to be pricey, but that just makes it a place to go for a special treat!
The gluten free waffle with fresh fruit is delicious and filling; unfortunately it is not dairy-free (cream in the batter). Amazing selection of teas, knowledgeable service and allergy accommodation. A happy visit indeed!
