YUMMY! Loved it so much that we dined here twice during our trip. Most of the menu can be made gluten free, including pancakes and French toast. I got the pancake trio - some of the best gluten free pancakes I’ve ever had. The waiters were very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Went here for the first time and the majority of the menu was able to be modified. The staff was very knowledgeable and told me that the kitchen staff changes their gloves and cooks the food separately from gluten containing items. I also received my meal with a flag indicating it was gluten free. Had a great experience here, would definitely go back.

Service is always great, it has a fun atmosphere, and the menu is wonderful! I’m just a tad wary of visiting now. Last time I went, they delivered a marked gluten free pancake to the table since I mentioned I had celiacs. My friend and I shared it and also ordered the same omelet main, no toast. Though I’ve never had an issue with cross-contamination. An hour or so later I got violently ill and was sick for the next 5h. It didn’t last long enough to be food poisoning, so I suspect the pancake was not gluten-free. 🙁

Oh man this place was a little bit of heaven for me!!! They offer lots of gluten free options!!! I was so excited that I could get French toast and pancakes and they were GLUTEN FREE! The waiter was very knowledgeable about celiac and reassured me they take every precaution to make their gluten free items safely. I had the pancake trio and it was sooooo delicious! I can’t wait to go back for the French toast! I had no reaction after eating here. What a blessing!

Excellent food, carefully prepared as illustrated by the extra time they took cleaning the kitchen prep area so don’t arrive in a rush, or let them know ahead of time. Numerous choices - they don’t even mark the items on the menu and say everything can be made gluten free, but be prepared for substitutions (GF bread in place of English muffins on the numerous varieties of eggs Benedict).

Also note the hours: they are strictly a morning place and are close at 2:30pm.

A very small caveat: their black tea seemed to have a fruit added - unexpected and not our fave, but I’m sure they would have replaced if asked.

Yummy place! I got the OMG! French Toast. All of their pancakes or French Toast could be made GF. My kids ordered apple juice and chocolate milk with their meals. The apple juice was so yummy, more like cider. My son said it was like eating an apple. The chocolate milk was thick and chocolatey. Only complaint is that portion sizes were on the smaller side and we all left still feeling a little hungry. Kids plates needed another pancake with it. My plate could have used an egg or side of bacon...something. Definitely would come here again.

Staff was very knowledgeable about allergy options. We are gluten, dairy, and soy free. All of their gluten free options contained dairy. Other than that the food was very good and so was the wait staff. They use mixes so they can’t swap ingredients out to help make allergy free dishes. Had a good time and enjoyed the food despite our limited choices.

One of my favorite places in the world! I used to live in California and while I was there I didn’t like pancakes in general which is mostly what the have there, but I can say that they have amazing hot chocolate and bacon. When we went back to visit I was able to get which OMG French toast which was AMAZING!!!

Anyway snooze is the best, always has been always will be😊

The GF pancakes did not make me sick - 3 stars - but they were tiny and expensive so I can’t go higher. The waiter charged us full price ala cart for our 6 year old’s breakfast, even though they do have a kids menu. If you’re going, plan to wait for a table. We waited 45 min on a Tuesday morning.

Non celiac gluten intolerant here! I’m also Dairy Free. I got their classic breakfast (eggs bacon hash browns and toast) they have gf toast but I didn’t want any. The server was very kind and assured me they would keep dairy and gluten away from my plate. There is a disclaimer on the menu that there is a risk of cross contamination so may or may not be safe for celiac I can’t say. I also always take a gluten and dairy digest pill when I eat out. All of that being said, the food was delicious and I felt great after!!

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!

Snooze is super yummy and I loved eating there when I was in Denver years ago. Unfortunately, it really isn't celiac safe. My waiter was knowledgeable about GF and even put an allergy warning on our food which made me feel really good about it. But...in the end I still had a pretty significant reaction. I think there's just too much going on in the back for it to be Celiac safe. We had the hash brown stack and a pancake. Maybe if you just stick with the savory you'd be ok? Unsure. As much as I love it, I won't be going back again. Two stars because it's delicious and if you just need gluten free "friendly", you'd have a great brunch.

A large variety of GF items. I use the menu on their website, which allows you to filter out non-GF options and also tells you menu items can be altered to be GF.

I usually get their lox benedict and their GF pancake flight.

The waitress said they are very serious about Celiac and made it sound like the had a dedicated gf area in the back. They can make almost off of their menu items gf, including most of their pancakes and even French toast! Their hot cocoa is also free of artificial sweeteners! Their menu app has a filter and you can see all the gf items and accommodations, and even filter for vegetarians and vegan items!
