It's a cool place to look at, our waiter was not concerned we were there, took 10 mins before we were even asked for drinks. When he finally did come to take our order, I mentioned I have a severe allergy and he just looked like a deer in the headlights. I ordered as best I could knowing what my body puts up with. I was breaking out what hives from something that was on the table before we were even served. Next time, if there is one, I'll be doing carry out.
Good pancakes but generally a LONG wait. Be prepared to PAY the price for the GF request! A bit pricey! No area for separate prep of GF either. If you are sensitive to cross contamination, this would be a No Go. Try Jewel's Cafe instead. Totally GF.
One of my favorite places, I love the GF pancake flight! They are very upfront about the possibility of cross contamination, so no separate prep area.
This was a tasty fun place. Went on a Saturday and was busy with a 20 minute wait. Lots of upbeat music. The servers were friendly and helpful with the Gluten free info. I had an omelet and GF order of upside down pineapple pancakes and hash browns. Was very good. Unfortunately my wife and I both had to hit the bathroom within a half hour after eating there. She has no gluten issues but I do. IDK, maybe related maybe not.
The food is great but it's NOT celiac friendly. As a gluten sensitive individual, I've had cross contamination issues here, I can only imagine how bad it'd be if I had Celiac.
They don't have a separate preparation area or separate pans etc for cooking the gluten free food.the staff told me this and said if you have a strong reaction to gluten to reconsider.it's great that they do gluten free but it's not safe for celiacs because of the risk of cross contamination.
we tried to get in here on a Sunday at noon and it was impossible. they were so packed that they told us it would be a 75min wait til we could get a table. we went somewhere else because I was really hungry. today being a Tuesday I decided to try again and just take my work lunch there with a friend. the staff seemed busy, but decently attentive. I got the pancake flight with strawberry rhubarb, nuttella banana, and pineapple upside down pancakes and it was so amazing. we also shared a side of bacon and hash browns, which were both really good as well (they seasoned the hash browns perfectly). at $20 for two people, you can't beat this place! especially for a gf person like me. want to go back soon!
They can make anything on the menu gluten free. Even their amazing pancakes! As someone who loves breakfast, this place quickly became my favorite spot once I was diagnosed.
This was the best gluten free place I have ever been. It has everything you could ever want for breakfast esp as a gluten free person and it taste great. The serving sizes were large, and great deals for the price. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere equally amazing. Hope I get to go again next time we are in town.
I made sure to ask about cross-contamination to let them know I was for reals, and did not get sick. The menu does not have gluten free options marked, so you're going to have to talk to your server about gluten anyway. I had the sweet potato pancakes, and they were amazing!!! Will definitely be back.
The reviews from 2013 and 2015 about cross contamination really freaked me out, but i've eaten here twice (as well as the one in Fort Collins) and have never had a problem. They wipe down the grill for gluten free, and are knowledgeable about the difference between allergy and celiac. The gluten-free blueberry danish pancakes are some of the best gf pancakes i've had since i was diagnosed with Celiac 8 years ago. Amanda was our server and she was fantastic!
I Nima tested the pancakes on Facebook Live (Good For You Gluten Free is where you can find me). They are NOT gluten free. Tested two different orders after the waitress said they wiped down everything for me. Only order naturally GF items like eggs. Again pancakes are not GF.
My daughter and I both have Celiac and are super sensitive. We were advised both times that no guarantee can be made to avoid cross contamination. We split the Snooze Classic Three farm fresh cage free eggs cooked any style and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, chorizo, pulled pork, chicken sausage or soyrizo. Includes hash browns and choice of toast. It comes with gluten free toast. WARNING: shared toaster, so ask them to toast under appliance that melts cheese instead. We also ordered a GF pancake...it's big and delicious! My husband, who has no issues with gluten, preferred it over the regular oancake😊 My husband ordered the Chilaquiles Benedict Flavorful barbacoa beef over a stack of ranchero sauced tortillas and melted cheese, with poached cage free eggs, roasted poblano hollandaise, pico de gallo and cotija cheese and the Chile Verde Benny Slow cooked pulled pork over a stack of green chile sauced tortillas and melted cheese with poached cage free eggs and green chili hollandaise, pico de gallo and cotija cheese. Which are both GF and Yummy!
Looooove the GF pancake flight!!
OMG! Great food and atmosphere! All servers are super friendly and tons of GF options. Only thing that they were not able to make GF is pot pie and breakfast burrito. Had mimosa with OJ and pomegranate with fluffiest blueberry pancakes, huervo rancheros with bacon and their poached eggs duo (smoked salmon and their beef) since I couldn't decide which ones to get - too many to choose from! 😋
Almost the entire menu can be modified gf and safe for celiacs. The options are endless and I need to go back to try more yummy food: eggs benedict, hash browns, French toast, corned beef hash, etc. I haven't felt this satisfied and excited about brunch in awhile.
They don't have a separate gf menu or gf items marked on the menu but they said most of the items can be made gf. I had the breakfast taco with corn tortilla for lunch and it was amazing (three huge tacos). Didn't ask if they have a gf dedicated section in the kitchen but I mentioned that my dish really needs to be gf and didn't have any symptoms though I am very sensitive. Will go back for sure next time I'm in Austin!
Great pancakes they can make everything on the menu gluten free except for 3 things! They waitress/ waiter were very knowledgeable about the gluten free allergy. I would definitely recommend it. It's a Scottsdale can't miss.
MUST GO! The staff was super educated abut food allergies. If you can't have dairy you cant have the pancakes or waffles bc they use cup for cup flour which was disappointing but great they knew that! I opted for the plain French toast instead which they used almost milk for..so nice!
Best gluten free pancakes I have ever had! They have so many gluten free options and the staff is really knowledgeable and understanding. They also don't up-charge for gluten free which I have never encountered before. I love this place!
Just moved to San Diego and this is my new favorite restaurant! A lot of breakfast items are already gluten free or can be made gluten free. They have excellent gluten free pancakes! Everyone that works there is super friendly and very knowledgeable about gluten free items. I have eaten breakfast here twice in the past week and have had no issues with being glutened. I highly recommend Snooze!
Great pancakes. I've had breakfast here two days in a row. Staff seems to be aware and careful.
I went here once and ordered the blueberry pancakes. They tasted amazing and I felt fine. I was told that it is a "gluten-free friendly" environment, but that most of their menu was gluten-free by default. And I felt fine afterwards. Fast forward 3 days later, I come here and order the same gluten-free blueberry pancakes. However, this time around I experience some of the worst gluten symptoms I've ever had. Insides on fire for multiple days. Unsure whether the pancakes themselves were not GF (which could have been an ordering mistake), or there was serious cross-contamination. Either way, I would recommend Celiacs avoid this place, since there is likely a high amount of cross-contamination.
Incredible. So friendly, so helpful and SO delicious. Cannot recommend enough. My boys had GF pancakes, I had the snooze classic with poached eggs, bacon and GF toast. It was beautiful. They also spoilt us with a free GF choc chip and cinnamon butter pancake. To. Die. For. Staff were well educated and customer service focused. Such a refreshing change for us as a GF and dairy intolerant family.
While not having a dedicated kitchen, the menu states they can not guarantee cross-contamination, for those of us without celiac it has a great staff, clean comfortable seating area and they can make almost anything on the menu GF. Great surprise right near the university. Their pancakes rock!!
Amazing food and knowledgeable staff! I highly recommend the breakfast tacos!
This place makes my week! Service is the name of the game at Snooze. Rachel makes the best latte on the planet! Brennan, omg, can he be any more adorable?! Oh yeah, the food. The food is so very yummy! There are only 2 items on the menu not served gluten free. Special tip: flight size pancakes for dessert. What's the best time to get there? That is ancient secret. I'm sure not telling. See you for breakfast!
There were only 2 items on the entire menu that couldn't be made GF. I was so happy to have so many options! I ended up ordering huevos rancheros but since this my first trip here, my waiter brought me a cinnamon butter pecan pancake free of charge to try. Smart man because I will definitely be back! It was beyond delicious! I am usually wary of GF bread options because of texture. I miss bread but many bread replacements don't cut it. This pancake was AMAZING - delicious and the texture was perfect. I can't wait to go back! Our waiter said they can't guarantee that there will be no cross-contamination but their kitchen has special areas and griddles for their GF menu items. No stomach pains for me and multiple delicious options means I will be back!
Fabulous restaurant. So many choices. I ended up getting the breakfast tacos (corn tortillas) and one gf pineapple upside down pancake. Both very tasty although I thought the tacos were better. Waiter did warn of gluten/flour in the kitchen. However I'm extremely sensitive and did not get sick.
WOW! Hands down the best breakfast restaurant I've ever been to. We are both Celiac and I am normally very sceptical of any eatery I'm not familiar with. But based on the reviews, I was willing to risk it. After talking to the waiter I felt comfortable enough to try. And how happy I am that I did. Highly recommended.
Gluten-free possibilities abound at this delightful sunny-side-up brunch spot, with almost any menu item available as a GF option. Just let your server know and your choices will be happily accommodated. Their online menu doesn't include this information but it's true! As with most restaurants, cross-contamination can happen but the staff promises to keep things as GF as possible. Like me, you've likely discovered it's a matter of degree in determining whether to dine out here or elsewhere. I had no issue with the food here even though I'm highly sensitive. First time in 8 years that I've had French toast that exceeded my expectations. Yes! The grilled cheese on GF bread with tomato soup and GF blueberry Danish pancake with lemon creme filling are recommended as well for those looking for GF comfort foods that aren't too heavy or sugary. Absolutely delicious food, knowledgable service, and modern vintage diner decor make Snooze AM Eatery a most welcome addition to Austin's ever expanding array of GF-friendly restaurants.
