They only bake GF, so I feel safe eating here. I have been 5 times! Staff seems allergy aware. It would be VERY easy for them to be dedicated GF. The best cupcakes are lemon and cookies & cream! I will say they could use stand to add more side options and/or a bigger variety of chips.

I’m gluten sensitive and daughter has Celiac. The food is very tasty and the servings are large. Even the meat eaters were happy. It’s possible to have cross contamination in the way they have the food set up. No one got sick.

The staff informed me that there was a lot of cross contamination from the few gluten containing items on the menu, everything looked delicious but as a very sensitive celiac I didn’t feel comfortable eating here.

First time trying this restaurant and it was delish. The employees were very helpful and friendly and their recommendations were spot on. The kale Caesar salad was absolutely delicious. If I lived in Nashville I would eat here regularly.

The entire restaurant was gluten free. We had the pot pie and it was probably the best thing I have eaten. There is a huge bakery. I took items to go because I ate so much. They have a nice patio to sit on. Highly recommend this place.

My review is only for the purpose of those who are NOT vegetarian. We went in expecting a regular burger based on the info in the app, but it's ONLY vegetarian food. It looked like a cute place, and was packed, but we didn't eat there.

The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about allergy procedures and cleanliness as well as ingredients and contents of food. They will also let you know if something can be served hot or cold based on contamination. Amazing amount of options. 🖤🖤🖤

I love this place, but cross contamination is definitely an issue. I love their food, but only order the things that to me look “less likely for cross contamination” like things where they use scoops. The salad area is all with their hands after handling buns/wraps etc..

Absolutely fresh and delicious and I will definitely be back! I had the cold pad Thai salad, the broccoli salad, and the Asian slaw. The pad Thai was amazing! Also love the gluten free no bake cookie!

The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable! They were very careful about cross contamination (had a separate toaster for celiac/GF) and had a huge selection of menu items to choose from! I am also dairy intolerant and was able to have a delicious meal without worrying about dairy or gluten!

Staff is extremely gluten aware! When told you are celiac they immediately change gloves-cheerfully! Many delicious GF options that are marked. In fact they can accommodate any other allergies. Can't believe this place doesn't rate five stars. The person who thought it was cross contamination nightmare needs to try again. Service line is cafeteria style and each person gets own tray.

Not Celiac friendly. This place is a cross-contamination nightmare. Watched them precariously attempt to grill a wrap in between two pieces of wax paper on a contaminated grill. Then the wrap was removed, placed on a contaminated cutting board, and cut with a contaminated knife. This is all after telling them I have an allergy. Clearly they don't take their "gluten-free" labeling very seriously.

They are under new management and have a wide selection of gluten free options. All veggie burgers and sandwiches can be made with Udi's bread or a brown rice wrap. GF options were clearly marked on the cafeteria style selections and staff was knowledgeable.
