This place is NOT celiac friendly. They do have lots of GF options and keep the dough in a separate bowl, but they have only 2 skillets and use both of them for gluten containing crepes, so there is no way to avoid cross contamination. This place is nice though and may be a great choice for not celiac people.
30 amazing gluten free choices!
Very cute place. I give it a 5 for the amount of GF options. I give my crepe 3 stars. I ordered the vegetable crepe with pesto and red pepper sauce and it came out looking amazing. Unfortunately the crepe itself is very, very dry. There was just a dab of this sauce on the crepe, but either that or some other sauce was much needed. I've had GF Crepes at another establishment made with almond flour and it was not dry at all so I'm guessing the buckwheat is the culprit. I will try again with a dessert crepe next time.
Excellent food with lots of options. Friendly knowledgeable staff. I let them know that I have celiac and the kitchen staff was very cautious to avoid cross contamination.
Gluten free options are endless and amazing!
The menu is marked with many gf options which are excellent and I've never felt ill after eating there. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac but have had to eat gf for 5 yrs or suffer the consequences. We eat here about once/month and have always had a good experience. Staff is knowledgable.
I have Celiac, I have between here 3 times. Twice I have gotten sick from my supposedly gluten free order. Last time I watched as the cook made a gluten crepe and without washing their hands made my gluten free order. I will never go back.
Ordered a gluten free simply breakfast crepe and halfway through the manager stormed over asking if I have an allergy or if gluten free is a preference. I told her I have celiac disease and she said the crepe was not gluten free. I'll now spend the next 3 days getting violently ill.
First visit today and the first dining out I've done since being diagnosed with Celiac's. Simply Crepes has gluten free options that actually taste great! They have separate preparation areas, separate tools/cookware, and trained staff. My questions about cross-contamination were answered cheerfully, the service was great, and so was the food!
Lots of options that can be made gluten free and dairy free if you need that. Great service. Can be busy on weekends
The GF crepe batter do good my wife who is not GF orders it by preference sometimes. Love the selection.
The presentation was great. The flavors were diverse and rich but not overpowering. My fiancé was ecstatic because she has never had a crepe due to celiacs disease. She had only good things to say about what she ordered. I ordered the cordon bleu and she had the turkey and Gouda crepe. She also ordered the banana nut crepe desert. She said that was also delicious. I am unable to comment on the desert because I am very full from my meal. In other words the portion sizes are generous. I will be returning to this establishment soon.
Dessert was great.
Awesome and creative menu at good prices (except for the $3 coffee)! Many gluten free options. The crepe is made from buckwheat and tasted pretty good! I'm not picky though. If you check in on yelp you get a free cappuccino!
If you can tolerate buckwheat, you will enjoy their crepes. This restaurant offers quite a few gluten free renditions/versions of their main menu dish options. Their menu also indicates a gluten free icon next to those particular menu options making it more convenient for 'us' - the allergy suffering diners. Also, if you can drink coffee, try their "Jamaican Me Crazy" hot coffee, it has beautiful hazelnut notes and is a favorite. Make sure you let the wait-server staff of your allergy and make a request to speak to the manager on duty to discuss any concerns regarding their menu options and food preparation. The decor is where "quaint meets tuscan rustic" and is a sweet place to have breakfast and lunch, although they also serve dinner crepes as well. I rated this establishment 4 stars only because I feel servers in any restaurant should be given additional training from their employer on how to service clients with our special food allergy needs and concerns as this would make our dining experience more enjoyable. Otherwise it is a sweet place to dine, in my opinion. Hope your experience will be sweet too.
My girlfriend and I ate here last week. Yes they are knowledgeable about celiac and yes my food was gluten free but the crepe was dry and flavorless and we both ended up just eating the food inside of the crepe. Safe yes but for 14.00 a crepe I would expect more .
Absolutely delicious! You can replace any crepe for a gluten free one ($2.00 extra) and the menu has it marked for which crepe insides are GF. Waitress was very knowledgeable and asked if it was for a gluten allergy so she could tell the chef. They had a free cider tasting promotion and an extensive wine list.
Though a tad on the pricey side, the food is delicious and the portions are enormous! There are many options on the menu which can be prepared gluten free, and the buckwheat crepe they use is quite tasty. I ordered the "Rugby" and was astounded at how big the portion was. Probably shouldn't have eaten the whole thing for lunch but it was so tasty that I didn't regret it at all.
excellent food, and large portions make it worth the trip. very good service. the gluten free buckwheat crepe was very good. I had bbq pulled pork and it was very tasty. my co-worker had a salad with chicken and a side order of potatoes, and he liked it so much that he requested we return for lunch the next day as well. there are many many gluten free menu items to choose from. restaurant is in downtown Canandaiga, and there is a free public parking lot behind the restaurant. a pretty downtown area with many restaurants and shops.
DANGER! BEWARE! I got seriously "glutened" there. I was hundreds of miles from home so it was a REAL problem for me. While their ingredients may be safe, I do not believe they have proper preparation protocol for serving a delicate celiac. They seem to have only 1 grill and there were NO signs of anyone changing gloves, cleaning the grill, using different tools to work with gluten-free batter. Sadly, hindsight is better vision than foresight. But YOU can learn from my complacency-bred terrible mistake! If your GF diet is by choice, perhaps you'll be fine. But if you are a highly reactive celiac like I am then AVOID AT ALL COSTS OR BE PREPARED TO WATCH LIKE A HAWK AND POSSIBLY REJECT YOUR MEAL FOR BAD PREP.
The staff was SOOO KIND!! They made us feel right at home with the friendly and cozy atmosphere. They have a beautifully decorated place with a fireplace and hardwood floors and chandeliers hang from their rustic ceiling. It's the full package. The food was amazing! Came out fast and was simply delicious! I had the GF crepes with a one of a kind raspberry latte!
