    Takes longer, but is delicious! One waitress is celiac, knows exactly what you can eat. The Reuben soup is amazing!

    The food is okay. I didn't have a reaction to it, but as others have said they really don't do anything to prevent cross contamination. This place is a great coffee shop with a cool vibe, but as a restaurant it's just okay.

    We went into this restaurant and the waitress told me they have gluten free bread, but it is not toasted in a dedicated GF toaster. I did not feel comfortable eating in this place because I was concerned about cross contamination, and I cannot risk making a mistake with my diet. This place certainly has character, but I would not recommend it for GF dining.

    One of the best places I've eaten in Minneapolis! They can make any of the sandwiches with gluten free bread

    Bad Waitress is a place to get a great meal. I am able to eat at this restaurant without getting ill. The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. I consistently get breakfast. They have gluten free bread for toast, however, they do not have a dedicated gluten free toaster, so, use cautious when requesting toast. Their omelettes are wonderful, I usually get gluten free bread along with it (un-toasted).
