    So good for so many different types of dietary restrictions, but especially for Celiacs. I always feel very comfortable there, as there are so many options.

    AWESOME place where everything is grain-free. It's like heaven to not even check if something has gluten! Really good and unique tasting food

    Lots of options- a bit heavy on almond flour but safe and good coffee

    What a warm and friendly place! This is the only bakery, café or restaurant within the vicinity that I know of that is both KOSHER and gluten free! It's kashrut certificate says that all of the products made on the premises are kosher, all dairy and pareve (without dairy or meat) products are separated, and some pre-packaged goods for sale are not kosher. Their products (in house made) are kosher for passover.

    Very disappointed with the food we ordered. Bagels had no flavor and the cinnamon buns were so oily that we had to throw them out after 2 bites. The muffin was OK....not great.

    Muffins where good, and the roasted veggie sandwiches tasted good but was difficult to eat because veggies were huge and bun was small. The brownies just tasted too much like honey so I wasn't a fan. Overall not bad might try different things next time. Lots of gluten free and dairy free options for those of us who can't have either.

    Great if you're Celiac... HOWEVER- if you have a tree nut allergy beware all baked goods are made with almond flour. For those with tree nut allergies you can have some smoothies or ice cream.

    Amazing! So great to be able to walk into a cafe and order anything I want off the menu again. Manchego grilled cheese, sweet potato chips and pickles, brownie, and ice cream - all delicious!!

    Love the pastries, coffee is great, but they burned my bagel and skimped on the cream cheese.

    What can I say, grain free, no refined sugar and delicious. The owner Michelle has opened "one of the best" many choices from muffins to breads, cookies, breakfast sandwiches, soups, salads, ice cream, beverages! The list goes on and on. Must try!

    Everything is so good! The sandwiches, the waffles, and the soup is off the charts. Favorite lunch spot, I am celiac, but my vegetarian friends love it too. Everything is GF, so it's a treat to have all menu options available and know the kitchen isn't contaminated. One of the few really safe eateries if you have severe reactions.

    Great food that is worth the price. 100% gF!!! Love the quiche, ice cream, baked goods, etc. Smoothies were a little watery. BUT so happy to have a GF place that serves more than just sweet baked goods, and it is a cafe setting where you can meet up with friends.

    First time visit. The texture is very good and everything is pretty delicious. My only comment would be that desserts need to be sweeter. I realize this might be tough with the use of honey vs. sugar.

    Banana bread- gluten and dairy free and for "sugar" they use honey- it was amazing. You can get your coffee with almond or coconut milk for all us gluten & dairy free people. Everything looked so good, I can't wait to try the pies and cakes.

    This place is great. Gluten-free flour is actually grain free made up entirely of nut flours. The owner does not use processed sugar but honey. Many of her things are also dairy-free. They have ice cream, baked goods, and are expanding their menu to have more lunch items. Not the place to go with a nut allergy, but the baked goods are very moist and tasty!

    Best chocolate chip cookies!! The mixed berry muffins were also very tasty. The best part was being able to buy baked goods that met all of my dietary restrictions instead of baking myself. The woman who helped me was kind, patient (I ask a lot of questions), and very knowledgeable. It was a bit of a ride for me to get there, but I'll definitely be going back soon!
