Offers gluten free options on the menu but does not take any steps to avoid cross contamination. Staff seemed irritated at the request to avoid cross contamination and told us that they could not make any accommodations for us.

Advertises most of menu to be gluten free/able to be made gluten free, but told me that there were no options for me as a Celiac which would avoid cross contamination. Even advised me to not eat their granola as it was cross contaminated. If you’re going to bother with the gluten free advertising and menu products, might want to make it either clear that it’s unsafe or do a better job attempting to accommodate. Waste of my time.

I ordered the banana oat pancakes and they were incredible! They are very hearty and taste like banana nut bread. I love that there was fresh fruit with it (blueberries, sliced strawberries and banana). I was so excited to find a place on Oahu that offered so many gluten free options.

Advertise all foods as gluten free but they cook everything in same stove top and baking equipment without cleaning. I had an açaí bowl as it was the only safe item.

I ordered the veggie burger. The woman taking my order informed me they couldn’t be sure my food was 100% GF but they would take precautions and not use the same toaster for my bun. I did not get sick.

Beware that this is a vegetarian restaurant first and gluten free second. I didn’t pick up on that and I am a meat eater — so was hoping for a gluten free Kailua pork sandwich or platter.

But with that out of the way, there is plenty of selection although everything has an Indian flavor to it — even the frittata and the tortilla soup. They have GF donuts though all are glazed with different flavors and sprinkles.

All in all, not a bad place to spend your lunch before or after chocolate tasting.

Had an açaí bowl, couldn’t eat the granola bc of a nut allergy (granola contains almonds) but I ate and had no reaction, to nuts or celiac. They also seemed really nice and patient when explaining things to me & didn’t get annoyed at my questions.

Woman at the counter didn’t know was Celiac was, but she said they are very good with allergies of any sort. I ordered a meal requesting the nuts (CC risk) be removed for safety measure, and asked for special care and handling with my meal. The meal came out exactly as I ordered and the staff member assured it was carefully handled. Tasted great and I didn’t get sick! I would definitely go back.

This is one of my favorite places to eat on the windward side or north shore. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free or vegan and the staff is very knowledgable. Everything is clearly marked and the food is incredible.
