The Dotted Lime is one of the best things to happen to Columbia. Super safe for celiacs/any other food allergy (can make anything at request!) & my favorite little place. Recently finding out I have a gluten sensitivity, this place is a life-saver. I was going here before I found out about my food sensitivity.

Hi! Due to our lease not being renewed, we are looking for a new spot in Columbia to reopen The Dotted Lime. In the mean time, we have the TDL Bakery, The Cranky Yankee (also dedicated gf), and our casual to full service catering services! You can also get our products at Lime&Loaf (our kitchen store and small cafe) and we partner with The Fainting Goat coffee in Spring Hill with baked goods as well.

We hope to see you soon!

The entire restaurant is gluten free. You don’t often see cinnamon rolls or fried chicken that’s gluten free. The food is delicious. ‘Doc’s Bringing Home the Bacon’ is one of my favorites. I recommend it to all my friend with celiac.

I have visited dedicated gluten free restaurants all over the US, and I can without a doubt say that this is my favorite. If you want a really healthy salad and smoothie, they have that for you. If you want a giant biscuit with chorizo, Nashville hot chicken, egg, and cheese, you can get that too. Perfect gluten free paradise, and they were very helpful with my dairy allergy! My husband loved that you can see the kitchen, and they will let you watch them prepare the food if you choose to do so. We will certainly be back any chance we get!

Oh my gosh. I rarely say that this is a meal I will remember for a very long time. But this was it and totally worth the hour drive from our campground. Forget that it’s all GF. Best cinnamon roll EVER, and my first try at chicken and waffles. I know I’ll be craving those spicy, sweet, salty and crunchy flavors. Can’t rave enough about quality. Coffee was excellent too.

Order from the counter and the food is delivered to your table. Entire place is GF so there is no risk of cross contamination. Many items are free of other allergens as well. Very friendly service.

The entire place is gluten free. They do not allow exterior food/snacks to keep it that way.

Follow them on social media to know their specials. They can also do custom cakes (we had a carrot cake made for our anniversary, and it was the best cake I’ve ever had).

They support and source a lot from local farms and have a farmers market in their parking lot once a week.

We are SO grateful for this completely safe restaurant for our gluten sensitive family. Gluten has NEVER entered this facility, assuring we have no worry about cross contamination.

The menu is diverse and delicious. Each member of our family has their own favorites but every single thing is delicious.

They are also fantastic about accommodating other food allergies and clearly labeling any potential allergens in other dishes. Family and budget friendly!

The whole restaurant is gluten free!

Food is amazing! Everything is safe to eat and definitely doesn’t taste like it should be gluten free. Their bread is so soft and buttery. It’s fantastic!

I commented on a post on facebook about how I wish it they could make gluten free hot dog buns because the store bought ones taste like cardboard. The owner then contacted me and said, “no problem”. Within a couple days I was picking up a dozen custom made hot dog buns that are absolutely delectable!

I have eaten here 3 times, and had violent stomach upset 3 times. When I brought a friend, she got sick too. The food is disgusting. Doughy weird cinnamon rolls, winky, limp, warm salads. It is popular and some people really love it, but celiac friendly or not, the food is gross. I have celiac disease. But I still **** my brains out every time I ate here. (I wanted to love it).

I would give it 10 stars if I could. I drive a solid 30-45 minutes to eat here! Dedicated gluten free facility with food that doesn’t taste like your typical GF foods. Chrissy and her family really have something special going on there! Never had a bad meal. You can eat in or take out. You can also order meals each week and for holidays. This was the first year I’ve had biscuits at Thanksgiving since I got celiac! Best chocolate chip cookie ever and honestly one of the best biscuits ever. Never disappoints!

This was my favorite place on my road trip! I tried multiple things during our few days in town, and they were all fantastic. At one point, the owner paused what he was doing to come over to check if my food was ok. (I ordered a sandwich with cheesey mushroom sauce everywhere and was trying to get it on my fork without making a bigger mess- definitely order that if it's on the menu, and get the gloves to save yourself some trouble.) While you wait for your food, eat a cinnamon roll- you won't be disappointed if you ask them to warm it up. So good!!

This is a dedicated gluten free facility with a note on the front door urging patrons not to bring in outside snacks to keep those with allergies safe. They can accommodate just about any other food allergen needs & you can expect foundation items like pizzas and salads with an occasional feature like shrimp & grits. Bakery items such as cinnamon rolls, muffins, brownies & cookies are also available. We love the food and the awesome family-friendly atmosphere.

Dedicated gluten free restaurant. Also peanut and tree nut free. Plus she labels dairy free, soy free, and corn free. Needless to say, this is the closest to home you can get to celiac safe! More importantly, the food is delicious. It is made from locally sourced ingredients, and the baked goods are made fresh on-site throughout the day. I often stop by just for a cinnamon roll!

This Rhode Islander visited with family who raved about The Dotted Lime before we went there. It is their favorite place when they are in the area. Could not believe that any restaurant could possibly be totally gluten free anywhere! Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and especially the Cinnamon Buns that we took to go. Had them for breakfast the next morning. Can't wait to go back next weekend when I am in town again. Well worth getting off Rt. 65 for fantastic food.
