Been here 3-4 times, never gotten sick with any medicine. I’m Celiac so it was amazing how they would go into the back in request for new ice cream. Please ask for ice cream from a new tub if you are celiac and have to avoid cross-contamination at all costs. I looked in the vanilla ice cream, which was one of their gluten-free options and it was covered in crumbs. The workers did a great job and they seemed well educated on the allergy. Overall there are two cookie substitutes and I haven’t gotten sick from either of them. I wouldn’t add any toppings or hot press as those could be cross contaminated. Good place to eat.

I tried to go in here shortly after they opened. I went in on a weekday afternoon before memorial day. I was the ONLY one in the store. no one had any clue what was GF. One person told me they knew that something was vegan. They pulled out their allergy sheet but couldn't read it. This was even after I had asked on a social media post if they had the GF that the main chain advertises. I thought I would be safe. I will visit again in the fall when they have it figured out. I broke my own policy by going into a restaurant that hasn't been open 6 months.

There were a few gluten free options for both cookies and ice cream. While quite expensive, it was delicious! One of the better gluten free cookies I’ve had (I got a sandwich with chocolate chip cookies and mint chip ice cream). Would definitely come back if we ever visit Nashville again!

Super delicious soft and gooey GF cookies! They were also conscious of using new ice cream to top the cookie to avoid cross-contamination.
