This is one of my go to places for gluten free gourmet safety. Adding smoked duck on the waffles will leave you in heaven. The toasts sourdough and lovely with toppings. Matched with their teas. It’s my treat here and there.
All the waffles are gluten free. I had the smoked duck, cheddar, and scallion waffle - amazing! I'm very a sensitive celiac, and had no reaction. I'm looking forward to trying the smoked duck jook next time.
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!
