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.

Amazing! The GF chicken fried steak was fantastic! The GF pancakes with honey butter were also delicious. Service was very good, too. Will definitely be going there again!

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.

The gal who took my order assured me they take food allergies seriously- so I ordered a savory crepe with bacon cheese onions and spinach - WOW! It was excellent! She even took a moment to confirm the chai was Gf ! I’ll be back!

DELICIOUS!!! I ordered bagels and lox with GF toast instead of bagel, and my bf got regular French toast. I didn’t get sick and OMG it was Delicious! Great portion sizing, nicely packaged for takeout with online ordering on their site. Will definitely come again!

First off the staff was very kind and attentive the two women working the counter were knowledgeable about the gluten free offerings and what was not safe! I ordered the Bacon Breakfast burrito smothered in red chili. I was in awe at how big that puppy was! Super excited to have a real tasting tortilla!!! 10 outta 10 will recommend!

The menu on the wall is marked with GF options but it’s hard to read. The online menu however is clear. They had GF breakfast burritos, which I had been craving so much I had that I had searched all over and drove across town to try them. I was so glad I did! They were huge! And delicious! I tried both the bacon and the sausage because I haven’t had a breakfast burrito in years. I preferred the bacon, but both were good. I was hoping for green chili, but she warned me it wasn’t GF (something I had forgotten to ask!). I love green chili, but I much prefer to be safe!! Her catching that gave me a lot of confidence in their knowledge. I had the red chili instead. It was like true chili, with lots of beans, so I ended up eating most of the burritos “handheld” style without it. Even without the chili, the burritos were good enough for me to wonder if it was too good to be true. But fortunately they were perfectly safe. (I’m crazy sensitive and have dangerous reactions so if they can keep me safe I feel pretty confident they can do so for others too.) I will definitely be back. Maybe I’ll bring friends. :)

About 1/2 the menu is GF and many other items can be adjusted. The burritos I tried were delicious and huge! Not the typical miniature GF version I was expecting. I was very satisfied.

For COVID they have clearly marked a 1-direction line and have separate doors for entering and exiting. They also set up a sanitization station by the door. They have only a couple tables left indoors but more seating outside. They also have takeout.

I eat here a lot. I get a build your own omelette and extra potatoes instead of (GF) toast. I haven’t tried any of their GF baked goods yet.
