    This was my spot when I was in college. Fast forward 15 years, I'm in town visiting, and now I can't eat gluten or most grains. Their gluten free pancakes are delicious and also free of corn flour/starch. I don't know about preparation, but they did make sure to bring my food out separately from my husband's. Glad I came back!

    My son ordered gf chocolate chip pancakes and he raved about them. Staff understand celiac and the need to not cross-contaminate. Great find!

    Prices were high. Food was average. There was leftover vomit from the person before where my mom was sitting. Staff was knowledgable about celiac disease and the menu items containing gluten. Menu didn't openly list what had gluten or not so had to ask.

    I love the smoked salmon eggs Benedict!! They seemed knowledgeable when I discussed what was safe to eat. The gluten free bread was pretty good too.

    Busy place and less than friendly staff. Food was okay, limited gluten free options. They were familiar with cross contamination, which is always a plus!

    Great place! I had the gluten free pancakes with bacon. There home fries are the best I've had and loved the atmosphere! Definitely go back!

    Not great communication. Home fries are not GF apparently, nor are their corn tortillas, which was not communicated to me. They will make substitutions without telling you. Could have made what was served to me as a substitution at home for a lot less trouble.

    Nice pancakes!! But we didn't like the rest so much. The restaurant seemed not that nice and clean, staff was ok, coffee was really bad.

    The staff is well aware of Celiac Disease, they have pans designated for gluten free cooking, and they are conscious of cross contamination in the kitchen. The manager came over after we ordered and explained their kitchen procedure. They do have Udi's gluten free toast, though I stuck with eggs and home made corned beef hash.

    Fantastic meal! I had a New Hampshire's Finest scramble, which was eggs with goat cheese, asparagus, bacon, and scallions. It came with home fries and gluten free toast. (I don't eat toast, so I ordered it without) The chef came out and told me that he was using all new pans and had a non contaminated cooking area. The waitress was very attentive. Highly recommended!

    The wait staff is highly educated about Celiac. They have a separate grill for GF cooking. The wait staff gives your order to the manager who then gives it to the cooks! Fabulous system for safe eating.
