Overall Rating


I came in with some friends for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised to find they had GF items. I'm also soy free so I often have to ask lots of questions since many GF products have soy in them. I asked about GF pancakes and was told by the very helpful server that the GF flour was a rice flour and that the only thing they added was buttermilk to the mix. He did not know if the mix had soy because it came prepackaged and did not list ingredients. I then asked about the GF bread and he said they got their bread from a GF bakery and again the packaging did not list ingredients. But, the server went out of his way to call the owner and came back and told me they get their GF bread from Deanna's Bakery in Escondido. That website says: . All of Deanna's Products are baked in a 100% Gluten Free Bakery in Escondido, California, U.S.A. Our Breads are Soy Free, Nut Free, Tree Nut Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Shellfish Free and of course Gluten Free. Don't know if Deanna's also provides their pancake mix...I forgot to follow up. Food was delicious! They use canola oil to fry their foods. Enjoy!
