I called ahead and they said they had allergy procedures that included hand washing, using a clean scoop and scooping from a new tub of ice cream. Sounded good to me! Plus every flavor was gluten free except hydrox cookie! The only negative is they didn’t have gluten free cones. We skipped the chocolate sauce that my son wanted because they said it was homemade and although it didn’t list gluten as an allergen, I was not 100% sure.
Old fashion shop, with the soda shop atmosphere! GF friendly and they are careful with cross contamination. Make sure you tell them so the are aware and they wash the area and change gloves. Many ice cream choices, sweet options, Sundaes, shakes, malts and more!
Great tasting ice cream flavors. Almost all are GF. They wash hands, santitze scoop, and grab from a new tub in the back for celiacs. We did cotton candy, mint chocolate chip, and cherry maple almond. All super yummy and the 3 celiacs in our group did great!
No one was wearing gloves. While there were a lot of workers, they were all bare hand. It was jammed with customers, so I opted out. It seems with all good intentions based on the state there was no way to avoid CC. My company waited on line for 30 minutes and said it was good, but not worth the wait. It was more of the experience it seems than the quality of the product. If you come at a less busy time, it might be worth the risk. On a positive note, they do have vegan options. Proceed with Caution.
An amazing place to get some delicious ice cream desserts! This place is highly conscious about gluten and other allergens; simply let the staff know whether you're a coeliac or you suffer from allergies and they'll sanitise the equipment! Gorgeous ice cream - my favourite is their hot chocolate float!
I'm from Nashville, Tn, but I had read about this in a magazine. I never thought I'd actually eat here because I'm also sensitive to dairy. I thought I'd have to settle for a soda, but they have vegan ice cream and procedures to accommodate celiacs. They used a clean scoop and served me from a fresh tub in the back. It was delicious, and I didn't have to worry about gluten!
Almost all flavors are gluten free, EXCEPT the hydrox (Cookies and Cream). Nothing is posted about items being gluten free and I had to wait on a long line to order and ask. Great ice cream, but would have been better if they had separate prep for gluten free orders. Not safe for those with super-sensitivity since the ice creams are all kept in the same case and could easily be contaminated with contact from ice cream cones.
When you're done with your history lesson, head down to the Franklin Fountain for ice cream in an authentic parlor. Travel back in time in a meticulously recreated soda fountain complete with egg creams, banana splits, and homemade ice cream. I'm particularly fond of the ginger ice cream but Philadelphia Vanilla is sure to please. The Franklin Fountain also offers soy ice creams.
Gluten and dairy free options clearly indicated on menu. Due to the nature of the product (all natural ingredients and vintage recipes/formulations) the great majority of the products are GF, and there are quite a lot of dairy-free options as well, surprisingly. The quality of the ice cream and sodas and toppings, etc. is peerless. You can't find treats like this anywhere else. It's pretty amazing.
