Really good gluten free pancakes! Eggs are a no go here but it was nice to have pancakes for a change.

The staff was very attentive and friendly. Many gluten free items on the menu but they are prepared along side of gluten containing items. They are very clear with their marking. As a Celiac, I probably shouldn’t have eaten there and heeded the warnings. I ordered all GF things but still managed to get cross contamination. Not their fault if they didn’t claim to be celiac friendly. And.... I also didn’t tell the waiter. They get 5 stars for their service and attentiveness.

Though I usually do low carb, the omelette so here are not GF! Apparently they add batter to them. But treated myself to tummy GF coconut/quinoa pancakes. One star off for adulterating the omelettes!

I am egg, dairy (cow), soy, gluten intolerant. Silver Diner is farm to fork offering locally sourced ingredients. I was so happy to find the diner (breakfast). I fully expected to eat only a bowl of fruit or salad as usual. The facility was spotless, The employees friendly and professional and patient with my requests.

Got an omelette and asked to replace the biscuit and toast with gluten free toast and they said that wasn't an issue at all. The food was decent, I felt fine after and they even forgot to charge me the extra dollar for the gluten free toast. I will definitely be back again.

Updated 7/2021 Not celiac safe I’ve been glutened the last two meals. As mentioned, disappointed because I ate at the Springfield location for years with no issues.

Very cautiously I call this celiac friendly. The Springfield location does much better. Menu offers a lot of options, I love the omelettes and the fish is always great.

Three visits, staff knowledge of menu, gf options, and cross contamination varied widely. Once glutened, though I asked several times if the fries were gluten free, if they’re fried in their own fryer, stating I’m celiac, wheat will make me very sick. Fries came out and after the first bite, I thought coated in batter. Yup, they are. When I flagged her down and asked they said, oh, I thought you were just asking if they were in their own fryer. 😕

Unfortunately, it looks like Silver Diner has removed most of their gluten-free options from the menu. They do show gluten-free toast as a substitute but they are using same surfaces for pancakes and omelettes so cross contamination is a problem. Gluten-free is marked on the menu but there were very few items gluten-free other than the ala cart sides. Add that to the fact that someone thought jacking up the music volume was a a good idea and service was extremely slow. We decided to go elsewhere.

Ate breakfast and was disappointed that there are few GF options. And there isn’t a dedicated toaster and the home fries are deep fried. My basic omelette came with a small side of fruit. The coffee was good. And the waitress was attentive.
