If you’re seriously gluten sensitive, DO NOT bother with this place. They do not care about cross contamination AT ALL. They use the same toasters and skillets for both allergen and allergen-free. My mom has bad celiac and we were incredibly disappointed. The staff didn’t seem concerned when we brought it up either. Simply a terrible place if you have allergies.

I was so excited to eat here because of all the great reviews and was extremely disappointed. Our waitress rolled her eyes when I said I needed to be gluten free. Limited options on menu and she said gf pancakes are made on the same griddle as regular pancakes and not a separate pan, but they clean the griddle in between each use and then said “we do allergies all the time you’re fine.” So I tried them with eggs and hash browns. Food was very average but did not get sick

Waitress could answer all my questions and food was great. Lost a star because BREAD IS ALL TOASTED IN THE SAME PLACE. I asked after it came out and to be safe I removed it from the plate and cut off my omelet it touched. They didn’t offer to reduce the $1 up charge but it’s a dollar no big deal.

Wow! I visited here because of the positive reviews and I was so impressed. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were so friendly. I had eggs, turkey sausage, and hash browns and a gluten free pancake. The pancake tasted so good plain that I couldn’t believe it was gluten free.

The only thing marked as gf on the menu is the pancakes. Everything else on the menu they will work with you on. The grits and hash browns are gf as well. I got the salmon omelette, grits, and a pancake. It was so good! We also got pineapple mimosas. I would definitely come here. My gf pancake came out after the meal because they take longer but it was so worth the wait!

We had a great experience here. Sat outside on a Saturday am and service was relatively fast. No separate menu but they offer GF toast and pancakes. I had a GF pancake and it was awesome, I really didn’t feel like it tasted “gf”. They were very accommodating and even checked with the chef when I had questions. I have celiac and had no reaction.

I had the GF pancakes. We ate inside which I’m glad we did because we had our own hot skillet at our table so I was able to spray and cook my own pancakes. I had strawberries as a topping. Along with that I had a side of scramble eggs and hash browns that they cooked in the back kitchen. I did not get sick. I made it a 4 star because the service wasn’t the best.

They offer GF pancakes cooked in a separate area in the kitchen. My daughter has amazing pancakes, and I had a GF breakfast sandwich that was very good (GF bread could be better but that’s not their fault). Two celiacs and no issues! I’d go again.

My daughter and I are visiting SCAD. She has celiac. She wanted to try as many celiac friendly places as possible. We chose The Funky Brunch Cafe because they offered gluten free pancakes and you cook them at the table. We asked them to wipe the grill after we sat down. They were super helpful and everything tasted awesome! We actually strategized about coming back during our visit. Btw, I had the hanger over dish. It was awesome as well.

Staff knowledgeable of GF. I had the upstream omlet with side of GF pancake and they accommodated by making it in a separate pan. If you order the full size GF pancakes you can make them on the griddle at your table which they assured is scrubbed clean after each use. Did not get sick.

I was able to get the omelette and grits as they were the only option for a celiac. They use the same toaster for all breads including GF. Maybe if you order GF pancake batter and cook it yourself at the griddle at your table? Idk. Grits weren’t that good and omelette was not great either overall

Had breakfast there this morning. GF pancakes, bacon and hash browns. Food was good, but was not impressed with the GF knowledge of staff. I asked if the hash browns were considered GF. She went to ask and came back to say she was told "gluten is wheat, and hash browns are potatoes, so yes they are gluten free". I found this answer to be really disrespectful, but just explained I was more concerned about how they were cooked/prepared. However, it was enough of a red flag for me that I took a Glutenease, just in case. Since I have not been sick, and it was a pretty neat atmosphere, I would go back and try this place again.

1st visit- excellent 2nd visit- waiter "forgot" to put it in GF and I was horrendously sick because I was several bites in before realizing. 3rd- french toast was just toast. My mimosa never came. My boyfriend's pancake came out NOT GF. My bacon didn't come until we asked for it. Boyfriend asked for banana and peanut butter on his pancake- it had no peanut butter. 2 out of 3 experiences were bad. We won't be back.

Long wait for crappy service. Our server looked high as a kite and was not friendly at all. Only GF options were pancakes, toast and a bowl of fruit. No way would I trust the griddles on the tables that are cleaned with water. Given how busy they were I wasn't trusting the back of the house to take proper precautions so I stuck with a mimosa and fruit.

Hands down THE BEST GF pancakes I have ever had! I have Celiac's, so going out is generally a risk. we had one of the griddle tables and I watched them clean it before I used it. Of course, it's not 100% perfect... but I knew it was cleaned between gluten and my GF pancakes... good stuff!

Breakfast at the Funky Brunch Cafe was the most underwhelming experience I've had in a while. Firstly, the space is too large, there were no feelings of intimacy which is something I enjoy on a quiet Saturday morning. Then there's the problem that my husband and I were seated right next to the servers station, meaning there were 11 people standing, talking, touching their hair (which is gross considering they touched my food next) and goofing around right behind my husband and I....hardly a pleasant experience. When my food came out it was on two small dishes, making it appear small and unimpressive; people eat with their eyes first & my eyes weren't happy. The food itself was lackluster. Nothing special, to be quite honest my husband said it tasted like his meal (biscuits and gravy) was pre-made....this wouldn't be so terrible if it weren't for the fact that his plate cost $8. Our bill was $25, which to me, for the atmosphere and tasteless food was way overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, in fact, I would urge them not to go.

Before anyone dismisses my comments, please keep in mind, I was a breakfast server at one point and have an understanding of how it works.
