Had the gluten free waffles. There were concerns that it wasn't a GF waffle and they were quick to make a new one. They were helpful and accommodating to make sure the customer was happy.
stopped in GF pancakes
Not impressed. Pancakes/waffles, bread and English muffin are the GF choices, besides all other natural GF breakfast foods. Service, well table that got sat after us apparently their order was taken before ours and they had eaten and left before ours ever came, same waitress! Decided to give them another try bad mistake different waitress same horrible service. Yet she was aware of a few more gluten free items available. If cross contamination is a issue this place definitely is not for you!
Make sure your server knows what gluten free means, I have been glutened here everytime I went! Had different servers each time and explained celiac disease but either cross contamination or the waiter not being knowledgeable has contributed to me getting severely glutened. I won't be back!
I ordered the bacon artichoke omelette with fruit and a side of single gf pancake. I told the waitress of my gluten "allergy" which she wrote down and didn't seem confused by but also didn't reassure me she understood either. I was worried when they brought the food to the table since the guy didn't say it was the gf pancake so I asked and he said it was. I took two bites and got scared that it tasted too good to be gf but after eating my whole omelette without issues, I went back to the pancake. I finished it and had no reaction at all! It was so good we went back to another one of these restaurants at a different location to have banana pancakes for breakfast this morning. This time the waiter delivering the food pointed out it was gf pancakes with banana. Ate half before I got full but never got sick at all. Ps the OJ is delish!
Employees are not aware of their allergen menu. Not knowledgeable about gluten free menu. Employee sounded annoyed when I asked about the ingredients. Not warranty this restaurant is focused about cross contamination. Dairy free? Nuts? Gluten? Very poor food service.
They have great food, big sizes and my daughter who is 13 & has had celiac disease for 12yr LOVES their gluten free pancakes!! Pacific Beach is the best location!
They have two choices in gluten free bread for sandwiches, choose breakfast potatoes, broccoli slaw or fresh fruit as a side. Also gluten free pancakes. Try the gluten free pumpkin pancakes in fall. Stay away from their hollandaise Sauce though. It's got wheat in it. I did ask them about their pancake syrup and they explained it's a corn syrup base made with no wheat and no gluten in the ingredients but they can't account for any cross contamination at manufacturing. They will however run to the market and get gluten free marked syrup if you ask them to as soon as you sit down and place your drink order if they can spare the staff. That's pretty cool.
horrible tease. told no written gf menu but waitresses know by heart. "well we have gf pancakes & can modify some other things" gave me false hope. "great which items can be modified" was met with a blank stare.yeah, no thanks!! filthy sticky table friends 2 meals $40....going to in n out burger for double double animal protein style
I had higher expectations from previous reviews. While the gf pancakes were good, there was no gf syrup option. The server offered honey, but not really what I wanted for my pancakes. The food here is good and the staff great but I won't get the pancakes again unless they come up with a syrup option.
Read to the end... We usually go to the same two places but wanted to try something new. I was concerned about the syrup having gluten (I read in a review here,) so I called and they assured me they had little packets of GF syrup. Didn't sound too appetizing but went anyway AND I am so glad we did! Not only did our server "Rene" have someone run to the store and buy us a bottle of high grade organic maple syrup but she was extremely versed in Nutrition and Gluten Sensitivity. I was sure to thank the Manager for great food and great service! We will be back! We were a party of 7 and everyone was HAPPY! My daughter and I are Gluten Sensitive and she had the French Toast and I had Pancakes! Yum!!!
This has been our go to breakfast since I went on a Celiac diet. I have eaten here multiple times and have never gotten sick. I make sure the put Allergy on the ticket. I really like their french toast and pancakes, but I bring my own syrup bc theirs contains gluten.
What a treat, I never make pancakes so it is a rare treat. The syrup container didn't look too inviting so I squeezed the orange slice over it along with two fried eggs and Applewood bacon....yum!! I am celiac and enjoyed this twice. Can't wait to visit Temecula again! The food servers were happy to pass on to chef to prepare my meal in GF area, whew;)
I am having breakfast here and they do Not have lots of options. Only 2 --- gluten free pancakes or wafffles but cooked on the aame griddle as other pankes. They do not know if any of thr meats are GF. Waitress says she gets customers whi are GF and surprised they have little to no choices as the websites say.
Limited GF staff knowledge. My omelette was just barely ok. Hardly any onions, peppers & spinach in it. My husbands bisquit was not light nor fluffy, but rather dense. His omelette was tough. Others in our party received an incorrect order. The wait staff, however, was very friendly & served our party of 14 very quickly.
Went for gluten-free pancakes but what got me was how fast the service was; plus the eggs and bacon are fantastic!! It is a bit pricey because the Gluten-free pancakes are around $8 and anything else is ala cart so it was $30 for the two of us. It was worth it though and we will definitely come back.
NOT gluten free! The pancakes themselves are GF, but they cook the pancakes on a grill with gluten-ful products. Luckily the waitress warned us before we ordered and we had to leave because my girlfriend has celiacs disease and she could only have eggs.
Excellent service. My son has celiac and he was so excited to have the gf pancakes! He also wanted to have the hash browns, which are just shredded potatoes and veg oil cooked on a separate area of the griddle, and they still cooked his order in a clean pan. Everything we ordered was super!
Went to the La Costa location this morning and had some of the best gluten free pancakes I have ever had!
