    I was told (and experienced) that their kitchen was 100% gluten free. Their bread items had great flavor and density!! Pancakes, doughnut "eyes" holes and bread!! Also kiddos had sweet potato fries!! Absolutely recommend

    100% gluten free!!!!! Love it when my daughter and I can eat safely with Celiac! Located in the Pearl St area. They have a bar as well with beer and cocktails. Even my non Celiac husband enjoyed the food! We had the broccoli max and cheese (dairy free and regular). The dairy free had an awesome flavor, although not as creamy and fish as the regular. The lamb meatballs were delish. The beef slider was great! Sweet potatoes fries and dipping sauce was great! The pork slider and tacos were so flavorful! I bought a cookbook as well by the 3 sisters who own this establishment. Highly recommend!

    Great for a celiac traveling on business. I had the veggie burger with sweet potato fries. (Yay safe fries!) I also had their Ahimsa sorghum beer. (Yay safe beer!) Very friendly and helpful service.

    So happy to find this 100% Gluten free restaurant in Boulder after a hike with my 18yo son and 20o daughter (both celiac). We started with one of their signature "potions" called Fairy Bubbles (non alcoholic) very tasty, but was expecting a larger serving based on the $7 price. We also had their Donut Eyes appetizer -- these were fantastic -- crispy cinnamon outside fluffy inside. My son had buttermilk pancakes with chocolate chips, bacon on the side. My daughter had a burger with cheddar cheese and sweet potato fries. I had scrambled eggs with veggies (I think it's called Farmer Scramble and can be made with veggies or meats). We were all happy with our choices.

    It was amazing for my husband to be able to order anything on the menu! He had the pancakes and they were wonderful, every bit as good or better than glutened pancakes. I loved that the menu is also heavily paleo friendly as I have a medical necessity to eat primarily paleo so there were many lovely options for us both. Great friendly staff and a lovely experience. Yes, portions are a little smallish, but it was plenty for us.

    I am visiting Boulder and have celiac disease. I read the reviews on this restaurant and decided to give it a try on a Saturday night. I was more than pleased! As someone who can rarely eat out, it was a real treat to be able to eat anything on the menu without having to ask for modifications. The food was delicious, and our server was so nice and explained everything. My non-gluten-free husband enjoyed his meal as well. This is a great place for a nice dinner out. We did make a reservation, which I would suggest. It was a bit pricey, but I didn't mind simply for the peace of mind of being able to eat delicious food without worry of getting sick.

    The most quintessentially-Boulder restaurant in Boulder. Great food & drinks. Been here many times with no celiac issues.

    I'm not sure how they are able to pull off a traditional brewery within a dedicated gluten free restaurant, but they do. The brewery facility and kitchen are separate rooms and nobody ever complains about getting glutened here. The food is wholesome and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The gluten free beer is as good as gluten free beer can be. I appreciate how they host events, live music, and support local community. The servings could be a bit bigger and the prices seem a bit on the high side for what you get, but with quality 100% GF ingredients and the location of the restaurant, it's completely understandable.

    100% gluten free menu with paleo options. On the more expensive side with small portions but very nice restaurant.

    A great place to grab lunch. While it's 100% gluten-free, I haven't had a meal I'd call remarkable. Everything I've had has been good but not standout. They do have a very robust menu, which is a huge plus when dining with people who may not be GF by necessity.

    Super cool atmosphere - very hippie/witchy. I had the GF/DF mac & cheese which was really good and the creamed kale (delicious). Try the gluten free beer they offer, it was one of the best GF beers I've ever had (ahimsa gluten free ale). The sides prices are very reasonable but the entrees can be expensive. Great all gluten free place nonetheless.

    Thought the food here was some of the best I had, not only during a recent trip to Denver, but maybe in the last few years. The entire establishment (with the exception of a lot of the beers) is GF, so there's nothing to worry about there. Had the pork ribs and the house made curry with buffalo, and both were very good.

    Almost totally gf menu! Locally sourced, natural/organic, humanely raised meats, home brewed beers...While a bit pricey, our family of 4 loved it. Service was fast, but not as friendly as we wanted, hence the 4 star rating.
