Excellent ! Free parking lot, great food and service. I had the strawberry gluten free pancake platter. They make their own strawberry syrup and whip cream, delicious! Their GF pancakes with moist, thick and fluffy. These were not undercooked, sometimes when you have thick and moist it tends to be gooey but not the case here. They make their own pancake batter. Coffee was excellent ! We went at 11:30 on Sunday and it was busy with people waiting but we didn’t have to wait long. Maybe 10 minutes. Service was great and quick. I wish there was one in Nashville where I live, I would go here again.

Ice cold hash browns and tasteless veggie omelet. The upside: good and attentive service, comfortable patio seating, and good unsweetened iced tea.

While I appreciate the marked GF options, they aren’t careful with cross contamination, using the same waffle cooker, utensils, pancake griddle, etc. I asked the manager if they could clean off the cook top for my pancake and she said yes but there’s no guarantee they won’t use the same utensil that touched a wheat pancake. I went ahead and risked it. I did feel a bit nauseous after but no sharp stomach pain/head over the toilet. Honestly, the consistency was just okay. The scrambled eggs were burnt (like couldn’t eat them) and the hash brown cheese casserole was just okay. Honestly, I wouldn’t care to come back at all if I lived in Ft Myers.

I have been here several times and food is delicious. Best GF panckes. I have Celiac and IBSD. I have not have any issues per say. You take a chance eating out at any restaurant unless it is totally a GF kitchen which is rare. I recommend this place for its GF pancakes. I am not a waffle person so cannot comment on that.

My fiancee (celiac) and sister (Graves’ disease) both love going here. They have a multitude of different gluten options that you normally wouldn’t see at breakfast/brunch restaurants. Menu is neatly labeled for GF options and staff is very knowledgeable.

Both my girls are celiac. We had no issues. They came out with sticks that said allergy. We called ahead the cooks confirmed they cook it on a separate skillet and separate side of the grill. Always call ahead in case anything changes! And the pancakes were very good

This is a new-ish café with wonderfully fluffy & tasty GF blueberry pancakes & other items. However, I agree with other people’s assessments on safety. There were some chocolate chips at one edge of my pancake, presumably from a previous order. It is a busy kitchen so it is not surprising for there to be some cross-contamination. It is hard to avoid I’m sure. I was fine but just worth noting.
