Just had a GF sandwich at TASTE in Town Center yesterday and it was AMAZING. I need to figure out where they source their bread or if they make it in house. It was an actual sandwich size, like a beautiful rustic round loaf size, and it was so soft and actually held together. I was shocked that it was GF but I know for a fact it was because when the worker handed me my sandwich he said it was and the sandwich was marked GF on the order sticker.

If you aren't in the mood for a sandwich they also offer salads but I haven't tried those yet!

I’ve gotten gluten free sandwiches a few times and they’re really good. I’m celiac and never reacted.

Limited options but those that are offered are great! Particularly like the Caesar salad (modified to be GF — no croutons with a side of GF bread). Managers are knowledgeable of celiac. Hit or miss with those working at registers. Ask for a manger when in doubt! They do have a separate prep area, FYI.

Taste has a great seasonally rotating Farmstand salad that you can add protein to if you’d like. The best thing on the menu for someone gluten-free is also seasonal… February to March they have a Ruben that is incredible! Because it’s warm with thousand island dressing and sauerkraut and melted cheese it softens the otherwise dry and crumbly gluten-free bread and makes it so delicious! Throughout the rest of the year you can get any other sandwich on gluten-free bread, but beware, it is dry and crumbly and falls apart before you can finish it. Sometimes though, you just want a sandwich so it will do!

Staff member was well versed on allergy protocols and they make the allergy sandwiches on a separate clean counter. GF bread resembled a large sourdough-style that almost looked too good to be true (but then it fell apart, but that is expected). All sandwiches can be made GF

An older review mentioned the large GF bun, sadly they recently changed again to a traditional sliced gf bread. Daughter loved the bun, bread no so much. It is one she's willing to eat though, but sometimes they are out and she ends up just getting the meat.

There may be many more options, but because also dairy free, daughter typically just gets turkey with gf bread (and hopes the roll comes back). They have dairy free cheese (noted on menu) but daughter doesn't want that brand of df cheese on a sandwhich.

Staff seemed knowledgeable and said that it would be prepared in a dedicated space. Because they are typically busy and you order at a counter we haven't explored other options. Always highlight that it needs to be GF/DF.

The chips they sell (bagged) have many gf options.
