Had the buckwheat pancake and my partner had the chicken and tomato portage. Mine was very good, but only one pancake for a nice price! Partner said his tasted just like tortilla soup! Seemed like there was a possibility of cross contamination, but we faired fine with our breakfast and coffee! Not a lot of room inside and very hip (uncomfortable) dining room! It was fine but not the leisurely brunch we expected.
I wouldn't risk it with the deserts or bakery items here, but the Rice porridges are definitely gluten free. The menu lists all the GF options and has savoury and sweet rice/rice porridge based dishes. I have not tried anything sweet but I have had both the crispy rice salad and also the chicken rice porridge twice. Did not get sick. I made it very very clear to staff that I had Celiac disease and did not want to risk getting sick. They were busy but accomodating. The best part about this place is you can SEE the kitchen, so you can watch your meal being prepared. I really loved the chicken rice porridge which is more like a savoury congee curry style dish and after having it once I came back many times.
Bit hard to get gluten free here long lines though
I found these guys on Yelp and thought I'd give it a go. I give them credit - it's one of "those" places "they" tell you are off the grid so word of mouth is what sells it. Long line but efficient. The menu is marked clearly for GF as well as vegan and vegetarian. It's centered around rice based brunch. They also have baked goods.Now the issue. Ignore the bleak service, I specifically ordered GLUTEN FREE items and made mention of it. The girl at the counter was unenthusiastic at best and disenchanted with how busy they were that when I had a question, it was tossed. I ordered TO GO a lovely looking gf chocolate almond bread slice. My regular food came. I ate it. It was just ok. Since then, my stomach has been churning. (In that sort of way that it does when you have gluten)THIS IS NOT A DEDICATED KITCHEN. I'm ok with that normally but now I'm sitting here doubled over in pain as I write this.Oh. That lovely pastry? The girl rang me up for a very expensive "chocolate and peanut butter brioche". (Their version of French toast) it was incredibly pricey, not what I ordered and definitely not gluten free. I felt rushed out of there after eating so I didn't check until I got home.It's a great place if you don't have to be in the neighborhood, it's day light, and it's not a Saturday.
