    Crepes were very good and are served with salad. There are both breakfast and lunch, savory and sweet crepes. There are gluten free crepes. They don't have a dedicated griddle, but they wipe down the crepe griddle thoroughly and use separate utensils for customers with gluten allergy. They also have non-crepe GF items like salads and brown rice sandwich wraps.

    Barely gluten free. Offers gluten free choices but not dedicated gf cooking surfaces. Understood issue with x-contamination and changed gloves and cleaned crepe burner, but didn't feel confident celiac was taken seriously

    Pleasant environment. Good food. Celiac knowledgeable. Wish portions were bigger or included a side. Has a soho vibe.

    I was so excited about the food. I'm gluten free but also vegan. The food was awesome. But then I realized they were cross contaminating. I can't be sure if they really understand having celiac rather than just a choice. If you eat here be very specific about Celiac. And also watch them cook

    Great crepes that are both gluten free and can be made completely dairy free. I have celiac and my daughter has a serious dairy allergy- we have eaten here multiple times with success and satisfaction. They also gave baked goods, gluten free and vegan at the counter which seem to change day to day but are yummy.

    I am gluten intolerant, not celiac so I'm a little less sensitive than some. I've enjoyed several of the baked goods here. I also love the salads. Unfortunately, their gluten free crepe is buckwheat, which is a very strong flavor which I really hated. I also ordered a salad to go and when I got home they had given me the wrong type of salad and ignored my request of putting onions on top. And no, it wasn't someone else's order.

    I love this place! I have celiac and my mother is gluten and dairy intolerant, and we were able to get gluten free sandwiches with dairy free cheese. They can make almost anything gluten free or vegan on request! Their baked goods, especially the carob bars, are so delicious! Can't wait to go back and try the crepes

    Got the Skinny Pancakes (as all crepes may be made gluten free). Even though I do appreciate what the place is doing to be more inviting to gluten intolerant folks, it was the worst crepe I have had in my life. I don't know about the other crepes, but do stay away from the Skinny Pancake. However, the other folks in my party had some other gluten free dishes, including the Herbivore & the breakfast burrito, and they very much enjoyed them! All in all, kudos to the starving artist to make the place more accessible to those who are gluten free, but there has to be improvements made to the crepes in order for them to be the least bit enjoyable.
