The only thing visibly gf on the menu were the pancakes. Didn’t seem like a lot of options. Pancakes were fine, but nothing special. Wouldn’t eat here again. I don’t know how seriously they take gf.

Very disappointed since there are only two gluten free options on their extensive menu. Great for vegetarians but not gluten free.

Pancakes only. Could not verify that anything else on the menu was gluten free after multiple requests.

Food is nothing special, but no issues with food safety for me. Easy breakfast spot if you're visiting for the BNP Paribas open.

There is not a gluten free menu but if you ask to speak with a manager they will tell you the gluten free options. They really accommodate by making substitutions easily. I had The Mom Omelette, a Mexican style omelette with tons of veggies inside and topped with almost an entire avocado! It was delicious! The manager told me my food would be cooked in a separate pan before I even had to ask. I have celiacs and I did not get sick at all at this restaurant. Also, I came planning to wait for a while since the restaurant was packed but they had me seated and eating in no time! I waited a while for my check but I was camped out with my books studying so I was glad they weren’t rushing to get me out. Would definitely recommend and come back 👍🏼

The GF pancakes, eggs and bacon were great, the hostess was knowledgeable about Celiac, and the chef ensured my breakfast was safe and enjoyable. I will be back, and I definitely recommend this place to anyone with a GF lifestyle.

They offer gluten free pancakes and waffles. I had the waffles, they were good since I don't get to eat waffles often. I topped them with strawberries. Nice and attentive wait staff and all other items my gluten eating friends enjoyed.

They have gluten free waffles and pancakes but when I inquired about eggs, the waitress said "no but we have egg beaters". I left without ordering. Proceed at your own risk.

The staff was very attentive to prevent cross contamination. The waitress Aurora, the manager, and the cook all came up to confirm the food order to prevent cross contamination. Delightful experience. I ordered the Sope, but replaced the base with corn tortillas because there isn’t a dedicated GF fryer. I’m fairly certain they have a dedicated waffle maker though.

I only ate a side of fruit but I saw that they had gluten free pancakes and options to make other things gluten free. I’m not sure how it is but the option is there. My family thought the food was okay and the service wasn’t great.

The GF Pancakes are the best in San Diego (so far)! Huge, fluffy hot cakes are a must have. Short stack is 2 & enough to feed you for two meals. 3 stacks is enough to share with a friend! Worth the trip!
