The staff was amazing. This is a small cafe type location in the middle of some walking shops. We drove a long way to try them out before having item shipped to us. My daughter and I had chicken tenders and fries. My daughter said it was the best chicken she’s had at a restaurant and we even picked up some to go. Worth the drive. This place is now a favorite!!
What a find! We love to use this app because when we are traveling we would never find places like Sanctuary! The food was fantastic and the two ladies working( one was an owner) were very helpful and friendly. The food was so fresh. The 2 tenders and fries were delicious and my choice of two tenders rather than four, was a good one. Filling, crunchy and delicious! The arancini was also yummy. I think the one girl was starting to cook our order as we were paying! You can feel sure that you will not have any gf problems because it is a dedicated facility. Don’t be afraid of the prices because it’s totally worth it! And don’t forget to treat yourself to a dessert and a frozen take out!! Can’t wait to eat those cinnamon rolls!
Awesome! The food is delicious and the fact that there is no risk of cross contamination makes the whole experience amazing! I had the burrito bowl (see photo) and picked up other goodies. You should definitely go support this unique restaurant and frozen take home meals!
What a great find. On a road trip from Maryland to Ohio and came across this gem right off the highway. Chicken tenders were huge and juicy. My non-GF husband raved. With the fires we could have probably split one order! Baked goods also delish. Was so great to feel safe getting food on the road. Dedicated gluten free facility.
Drove an hour to go here last night and my husband and I had a great experience. The food was delicious. Yes it is a very limited hot menu, because they were originally just going to deliver frozen foods to people. They have a freezer to take food to go, so I bought some of that and ate a breakfast sandwich this morning, which was also really good. The lady that was working there who served and made the food for us was very nice as well. Highly recommend this place. They have only been around for a year. I hope they get popular and stay open for a long time.
AMAZING!! Love their chicken tenders, crab cakes, chicken pot pies, bacon egg & cheese breakfast pastries and so much more! Oh and the doughnut holes you get if you spend a certain amount of $ - YUM! I can't say enough great things about Sanctuary. I always stock up & buy extra frozen items to cook at home later. There's absolutely NO gluten AT ALL in the facility. Lots of thought and care go into all of the food they make. Locally sourced food, GF, so it's more expensive but so worth it! Open Wed - Sat 11am - 7pm.
Sanctuary has made going gluten free easy to stick with! I don't cook & the store bought frozen meals were hard to find, expensive and still had ingredients that irritated my digestion. Now I have a source of meals I grew up with, along with new favorites! The staff are wonderful and the owner is great about answering any questions I may have. They know my favorites and tonight was greeted with "Would you like one of these Arincini I'm making?" I always feel welcomed when I walk in - just like walking into my grandmom's kitchen!
The staff was very knowledgeable! I was extremely happy that they were also a nut free . The blueberry muffins were excellent, light and fluffy!! The chicken tenders with honey mustard were the best that I have ever had !! I will definitely go back for another visit!!
Staff is very nice and knowledgeable and the food is absolutely amazing! I highly recommend the chicken tenders.
The frozen entrees are delicious! We tried the pot pie and lasagna rolls and they cooked just perfect according to the directions for the lovely staff provided. The baked goods are scrumptious as well and you wouldn’t even know they are 100% gluten free! Our favorite is the lemon glazed muffin and cinnamon swirl muffins. Thank you so much for your knowledge and sincere compassion for this cause!
I want to love this place. I need there to be a dedicated gluten free restaurant in Frederick. Unfortunately, there are HUGE issues here. One employee that seems to be there most times that I have visited, seems very annoyed to be there. I don’t need a friendly greeting or expect everyone to have a good day, every day. But this guy has a range from annoyed to clearly doesn’t want customers. He will lie and say they are out of things because he doesn’t want to cook them. Or try to convince you that it will taste better if you cook it yourself at home. Another HUGE thing that I’ve only noticed a couple of times (out of about 10) is unsafe food handeling. No, it is not okay to wear the same gloves that just handled money to then prepare food. That is not why you are wearing gloves! I believe I’ve met management/ owner on one of my visits. They seem like reasonable people. Staff needs safety training and get rid of people who don’t want to be there. Otherwise, Frederick won’t have the gluten feee restaurant that we NEED.
This place is a GEM. Don't listen to anyone who says otherwise. In particular, the arancini was phenomenal.
Fantastic little place. Everything is fresh and made in house. No possibly of cross contamination.
Very tasty fries. Happy to see the donut holes. I like how I can take home frozen foods. And overall a good place to eat.
The owners are wonderful and the food was exquisite! We tried most of the available fresh options, eating on stools at the window-side counter, and took home baked goods plus frozen items to reheat. Everything was amazing! They ship, but it’s also worth it to us to drive the hour!
OMG this place is AMAZING!!! I mean the gluten free place in frederick. I had the chance of trying their crispy chicken sandwich with fries which to me is the best chicken I've ever had, The flavor is so awesome and the spicy kick it has just made it even better. I was ready to get the Arancini but the Manager who I thought was the owner at first sold me on the chicken sandwich, he's very friendly and definitely brings light to this business. I really enjoyed the fact that he cared to ask me about what kind of food I enjoy, he's definitely a face yo have running the show. I will recommend this place to everyone I know that is celiac
Very delicious fries that are reminiscent of curly fries (texture not shape). Amazing to have a dedicated Gf place on our way to visit grandma in Cumberland! Sadly the arepa was not good at all - super greasy and not authentic.. just a soggy fatty corn cake and eggs. But the fries were epic so it’s worth Another shot.
I’d give these guys 1,000 stars if I could!! I cannot stress enough how incredibly happy I am with Sanctuary Modern Kitchen!!! These guys are true heroes! They are a 100% gluten free bakery who make the most delicious empanadas ever!! My best friend was diagnosed with Celiac a few years ago and all she wanted at her bridal shower was empanadas like the ones my mom used to make for her when she would come over. After searching online for a dedicated gluten free kitchen that made empanadas, Sanctuary came up, but they were an hour and a half away from where the shower was taking place. I took a shot and called them anyways to see if there was something we could do, and these guys pulled through big time!!! They met me half way and delivered the most delicious empanadas I could imagine in an extremely professional and orderly way: individually wrapped and in a cooler full of ice for the drive home. The empanadas were an absolute hit at the party, and everyone was shocked to hear that they were gluten free. Even my mom, the empanadas connoisseur, gave them her highly coveted seal of approval. Absolutely phenomenal! My friend actually actually screamed with delight when she saw them and couldn’t stop eating them. Thank you guys so so much!! You made her day and mine :)
Absolutely fantastic gluten-free food! Everything was delicious and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely be going back on our next trip to Maryland!
The whole store is gluten free so it is great that everything is safe. I have been disappointed at their very limited offerings and things are often out of stock. There have been times I've been in there where the only hot items available are chicken tenders and fries. It is $16 to get an order of 4 tenders with fries (drink not included). The tenders are very dry I don't particularly like them. The fries are good. I do expect higher prices for safe gluten free food but they really need some more affordable options and just more consistency. The baked goods are all really good. The pizza crust in particular is the best gluten free crust I have ever had.
Wonderful new counter-service joint! they have space to sit and eat, including outdoor seating. I love that there is now a place in Frederick where EVERYTHING is gluten free. I had the chicken fingers, and the egg, cheese, & cilantro arepa. The egg on the arepa was perfectly overeasy, so I had some delicious runny yoke to enjoy! The chicken fingers, while a bit too salty, were such a nice treat! Where else can a GF person go out to eat fried chicken?! Nowhere else in Frederick. I will definitely be going back to try some of their baked goods. Thanks Sanctuary for being there for us GF people. I look forward to coming back!
Wow, what a fabulous treat this was! Chicken tenders were crispy and juicy!! All it needed was a gf waffle to go with it!! We tried the Arancini, a fried rice ball with beef, cheese and peas; that was very good! This was a GF restaurant and they have frozen take away to cook at home. We also tried a beef sandwich that was good but needed some sauce and cheese to make it pop. The staff was friendly, and the cafe was clean and well appointed. Highly recommend! Oh and COOKIES were fabulous!!
Two stars for all gluten free! We have tried many items on the menu - the chicken fingers and wings are dry, the sandwiches are very bready - not much filler or flavor in the breakfast sandwich. The arancini is good, but the filler is a little stingy - 2 peas each ball- and the French fries are pricey, but good. The prices are a bit high for "take out" - $50+ for lunch for 2, not including tip- but we hope adjustments will be made for the sake of the gf community.
100% GF business! They have a small menu of hot dishes, frozen dishes to go, and baked goods. It's great not to worry about cross contamination and GF fried foods are always a treat!
