    They have gluten free bread for sandwiches. You can tell it's homemade too, not just one of the brands from the grocery store. The eggs were also delicious! We were only in town for the weekend, but wish we could come back already.

    The coffee is great, but they don't have any type of dedicated equipment. I got the gf bread with avocado and an egg, and they wouldn't put foil or anything down to toast it. The bread came out cold (like, straight from the refrigerator) which made the egg cold and pretty much inedible. I still meet friends there for coffee regularly, but definitely don't plan to eat here if you're Celiac.

    Overpriced and staff is not knowledgable. They didn't even know what the "flour free" muffins contained so that i was unwarned as to what have contained. Plus you have to add $4 to sub anything GF so that was lame

    Good coffee but as other reviewers have said this is not celiac friendly. They do not have dedicate equipment

    Quite a disappointment. Not at all Celiac friendly. The other reviewer made it sound very promising. I called the day before to make sure there was GF option because of what I read here. I was told they make something GF everyday and that GF bread is available with breakfast items and for sandwiches. It's quite a strange setup. Wait in line, place your order, take your beverage and a cleaver sign with monkey shaped number on a stand and hunt for a table yourself. Your food is delivered to you when ready. Payment is upfront before you get the food. My husband included a tip with the payment for absolutely no service. Who knew. When ordering I asked if there is a dedicated toaster for the GF bread. Nope. Okay, I'll just take the bread (can always put butter and jelly on it). The fellow taking the order asked if I had Celiac. Yep. He said that they are not Celiac friendly and not only should I not have the bread, because it wasn't guaranteed GF, but I shouldn't even order eggs with bacon or turkey sausage because they are made on the same griddle with pancakes etc. My fault not to have asked more detailed questions the day before, but not only does this place not belong on this list their website should not advertise GF. The fellow checked with the kitchen and they said they would make my scrambled eggs with cheese in a separate skillet. We waited for quite a while to be served, long enough for the ice in our water to melt (no seats inside so we had to sit outside in the sun-no shade). My eggs arrived on a plate with nothing else on it, because there is nothing else for me to eat and no cheese on my eggs as requested. The eggs are a little too wet for me, but I choked down as much as I could. Fortunately I had eaten something to tied me over. Our cousin ordered a breakfast sandwich on a wheat bagel which looked pretty unappetizing and she didn't finish it, I wouldn't have either. My husband ordered eggs over medium with with avocado, sprouts, and salsa on rye toast. It came with swirled bread that wasn't toasted, no butter, margarine or jelly was served. Since the servers really only bring out the food there wasn't an opportunity to ask someone for more water/ice or condiments. So fellow Celiacs don't waste your time.

    Not a gf facility or dedicated menu, but they can modify most menu items to be gf as indicated on the main menu. I'm pretty sensitive, but even in a shared kitchen I haven't been sick at all after the three times I've eaten there in the last two days. Service is phenomenal and the staff is great with kids!
