    just walked in and tried to order for my 3 celiac kids and the person behind the counter said they did not have anything separate, same toasters and basically said they couldn't accommodate us. Totally discouraged us from ordering so we left. My experience does not jive with the other reviews here.

    Lovely decor. Clean. Ordered the smoked salmon on GF bagel, coffee and a couple GF baked goods for the road. Staff friendly and helpful with directions to local attractions.

    They carry udi's bagels. They were delicious. I didn't have the sandwiches but my husband said they were great (his wasn't gf). The banana bread was gf and if was delicious! My only complaint was it was a bit pricey for a family of four to eat lunch at.

    I went here this morning with my boyfriend who is extremely sensitive to gluten. We each got an egg and cheese sandwich with bacon, which they put on an Udi's bagel. Very delicious. We also got a yogurt parfait to share(we might each have to get one next time!!) with their homemade GF granola! It was delicious and very cinnamony! They have good coffee as well, which my boyfriend drank while I enjoyed a Nantucket Nectar juice! They had many other options that we didn't try today but may some other time. My boyfriend is feeling perfectly fine hours after eating at this place! We drove from Albany, NY and it was totally worth the almost hour long drive!! We are always looking for places to eat a gluten free breakfast, and this place is great!

    The Brown Cow had delicious choices. They use Udi's bread for the gluten free sandwiches. The person who helped me knew the ingredients in every item, including the house salad dressing. She customized my salad because I am also allergic to nightshades and can't have Udi's. Nothing was a problem for her and she was gluten free herself! I saw gluten free homemade brownies and vegetarian options. My salad (Cobb minus tomato plus avocado) was fresh and the house dressing was yummy! The iced coffee was great too!
