Meh. I was pumped for this place, and when I saw biscuits and gravy on the menu as a gluten free option.. I was ecstatic. (It’s hard to find this meal anywhere) Well, the single biscuit was a crumbly, dry, dense lump that literally tasted like nothing. The gravy was also a huge letdown. It was watery and had a very faint flavor of something that wanted to be gravy. It was served with scrambled eggs and fried potatoes.

I will say it was a good portion of food. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I’ll post a photo of the meal.

The location is cute, it had outdoor seating and was lovely. Perhaps someone will try something else that is tasty. I was in town for just a few days, so I won’t be returning.

Really enjoyed this place and I would go back repeatedly during a Colorado visit! I had the gluten free buttermilk pancakes with raspberry compote, my daughter had the gluten free crepes and both were good. The pancakes were better than the crepes and definitely one of the best I’ve had in a restaurant. They also have gluten free biscuits and gravy!!

Ah, I wanted to like this one.

The order-taker was snippy and sporting an attitude, barely answered questions. The menu is vast and GF items are not clearly marked, nor are any details apparent with regard to preparation, cross-contamination, etc.

I had the chicken-fried steak with gravy, which is always, only, prepared GF. Tastes wonderful. Good coffee and tea. The restaurant is in a walkable retail area and has outdoor seating as well.

Usually gluten free bread options suck. BUT, The French Press has amazing gluten free bread. The best Iv ever had! I always order a make your own breakfast sandwich and they give a lot of options. They are extremely inclusive to all kinds of special needs. Love this place.

I have Celiac and they were very careful with my salad. I ate there twice and both times got the salad. They did disclose that there is potential for cross contamination as they are not a completely gluten free kitchen but their kitchen does their best to avoid cross contamination. I didn't get sick either time.

First it is safe for celiacs. Many of us have a dairy intolerance. All of the pancakes contain dairy. They don't have any GF bread only a wrap. The decaf coffee is single serve so expensive. Waitress was not nice either time I've been. Not for me.

Delicious!

Gluten free options are plentiful - more than I ever expected from a brunch spot - and delicious (especially the raspberry pancakes!). They often have a couple gf baked goods in addition to the hot food on their menu. Also super cheap for GF (which is so often up charged way too much). Highly recommend!!!

Very attentive and communicative when we mentioned our son’s celiac. Their GF pancakes are cooked on the same griddle as others, but they take care to clean it first.
