Just walked out of there. Really good food. We ordered the Fish and chips and the Ruben. Both delicious items, although I didn’t know that the Ruben was vegan was still delicious. My girlfriend is celiac and I’m allergic to soy, so for us to find this Mecca in the middle of Mnt Vernon was amazing.

The down fall is that the front of the house workers need a little more training. They were not able to answer simple questions about the menu and for some reason my Ruben ticket didn’t print and the worker forgot about it. Besides that a really good place to stop by and get some lunch and coffee or a Ghost fish IPA.

Honestly just had a really disappointing experience. Yes I believe it to be gluten free but the food was simply not good. We got herbed potatoes, bland and burnt. Avocado toast, ordered with no tomato, came with tomato and half bad Avocado. Biscuits and gravy, if you LOVE mushrooms, maybe you'd like this, I do not and I did not. Haven't waited long enough to know if there's any tummy upset but flavor was 2/10

I use to work here the owner did not tell vendors or customers that her product was contaminated for two weeks . If you have a gluten free tester use it to be safe with her products.

Had a strange, and worrisome experience today. Went and the server quickly asked if we had celiac, when we answered, “yes.” We were told the flour used is contaminated and is not safe for those with celiac. I asked if it was a temporary, accidental contamination, and although the explanation wasn’t super clear, it did not sound like this was a short term or temporary problem.

This is the first we have heard this, but I’d rather concerning for an establishment that is gluten free.

Had a great lunch (patty melt and excellent coleslaw) and took home baked goods too. Nice small restaurant and bakery. My non-celiac spouse said he would not have known the buns were gf unless you told him (big complement!) I have purchased their bread elsewhere, which tempted me to drive a ways to the restaurant. I look forward to cinnamon biscuits tomorrow morning too!

Mixed experiences. I got the burger once and it was great 5/5. Another time I got the biscuits and gravy at a street event, sad to say it was so bad I dumped the $15 plate in the trash after 5 bites. Genuinely inedible, perhaps it was the nature of it being a street event, but I won't risk it again.

Service was so-so both times, I paid for an item I didn't get in a take out order and was blatantly ignored for 5min+ the second time. Service is slow.

From the standpoint that it is a 100% gf facility, ill go back for a burger and pastry, but with measured expectations.

Location is VERY cute and cozy, wonderful atmosphere. Just be wary about speed and confirm to-go orders before leaving

I wish I lived closer. The best salad I ever had came from this restaurant. Last visit we had fish and chips and the fish was so fresh! This is real food, from scratch in a GF environment. We were served outdoors and the waitstaff went above and beyond, checking on us often. I am looking forward to my next visit.

We went here for a special occasion. We were so glad to find a dedicated gluten free place to eat out. We specified a tomato allergy for one person in our party. We waited over an hour and 15 minutes for our food and the restaurant was not busy. We got our order and the dish with the tomato allergy came with diced tomatoes all over it. When brought to their attention we were told they would give us a refund for the dish and that was all. I clarified that she was telling us no replacement dish without tomato’s and that we would only be getting a refund?! She said yes, it would be another 25 mins or more if we wanted the dish made as ordered without tomatoes and that we would not be getting a refund if that was the case. Not sure how you can just refund one person and leave them without food and take no care in replacing it or offering anything else on the menu that would suffice. I also did notice tons of long term dust overhead, in corners, and on the wall art. I wish I could say this was a great experience but it was a big disappointment :(

Their gf sourdough bread is the best, I buy several loafs at a time. I also love the bagel breakfast sandwich. The cupcakes always taste days old and stale unfortunately. I also have lactose intolerance and appreciate how many df options there are.

All food GF and very good. 3 stars because I didn’t receive 3 items I paid for & when I asked the young girls who were working there they kept assuring me everything was in the bag. When I got back to the hotel, I found I was right, it wasn’t there. I spent $100.00, left a 20% tip (no one served me, I got all to go food) & I tried to tell them twice I didn’t think my food was in there. Paying for food you don’t receive is bad business, asking about your food & being reassured it’s “in one of the bags” when it’s not is worse business. Won’t return.
