Simon’s has some gf items, like salads or sandwiches with gf bread if you specify. Occasionally, however, they feature a gf, vegan raw lasagne that’s amazing. I highly recommend it. Otherwise the chicken salad is my favorite. (Just tell them to hold the chunk of bread.) Important note: for sandwiches, they serve gf bread from Sami’s Bakery in Tampa.

I ordered a sandwich on what was supposed to be gluten-free bread. I never got so violently sick before this. Within a short amount of time, all that food came right back out! So for celiac‘s, I would say this place is not a safe option.

We were told this was a great place for gluten free, but it is Definitely not for celiacs. They will not go to the extra effort to avoid cross contamination.

Very laid-back café & good for our vegan daughter, but they said their gluten-free options are only for people on elective diets, not celiacs. They said they could not guarantee no cross-contamination so I couldn’t eat there.

I didn’t find many options for GF at all. They are more for health conscious people than for GF. We had maybe 2 options.

Fantastic place for your average health conscience person . Average for gluten free . Very limited options . But , they do have some options including bread . Good for breakfast or a sandwich but I wouldn't go here for the gluten free baked goods ( definitely below average ) . They coffee is good and the staff is friendly , knowledgable and understanding .
