Loved this place! We started a road trip in San Francisco and chose this place for our first meal out. We all had savoury waffles (all very good) and I finished with the Love Letter sweet waffle... omg it was good! They were really nice, very knowledgeable and it was a great experience.

I came for the gluten free food but I also am allergic to coconut which the sweet waffles had when I tried to get a savory waffle (without coconut) without toppings I was allergic to the person taking my order got increasingly miffed and annoyed and refused to let me customize a waffle with toppings I could eat even though build your own waffle was an option. I wound up just getting a coffee

I NEARLY CRIED!

This place is wonderful. Entirely GF menu from the kitchen, and the food is excellent. The fries are top notch, and their Mochi waffles are just something unreal.

This place offers board games to play with food and is very reasonably priced, I’m going to be back!

I went to the Game Parlour when visiting SF with family and had a wonderful time. Almost of us ordered the savory waffles, which were crispy and delicious. The sweet waffles are mochi waffles, so they have a much chewier texture, which is something to be aware of. The fries are really good, I would highly recommend! In terms of the ambiance of the place, it seemed hip and the restaurant was busy. Many people were playing tabletop games, but we didn’t since it costed an extra $7 per person to play.

We travel from SoCal JUST for their food. Everything down to their lattes are magic. Today we ordered their spicy chicken coup waffle, fish and chips (first time finding these GF) and spicy munchkins (because we can’t get enough of their chicken). We’re only here for two days so of course we need to go back tomorrow for their sweet waffles! Finding beyond delicious food, which just happens to be 100% GF, AND a fun and down to earth atmospher is a rare and special find. Drop what you’re doing and go NOW!

Awesome place! The kitchen is entirely GF. Super friendly and knowledgeable. I had a delicious portobello waffle sandwich and my daughter (who is not GF) loved her fried chicken waffle. During COVID they’re not lending out their games to play with but you can bring your own - or better yet buy one in their store.

I LOVE this place! Everything is clearly labeled and just about everything is GF. My savory waffle sandwich was so tasty! I tried a sweet/dessert kind of waffle as well but wasn’t a fan of it- a little chewy for my liking (but I believe it was a mochi waffle so that’s probably why). Overall DELICIOUS and a must try! Love the game concepts as well. It’s so nice seeing people actually interact instead of being on their phones!

Food was very good. Everything they make in house is gluten free (so just not the ice cream and some beers they get from other companies). Server was also very knowledgeable and the menu was nicely labeled! We didn’t stay to play any of the games, but a very cute place overall!

The kitchen is 100% gluten free. There are a few things that have gluten in the front of the house such as one of the ice cream flavors and beer, but cross-contamination would be unlikely. I read here that some of the toppings have gluten but when we visited there were none that had gluten.

My husband ordered a savory waffle - he had the pastrami sandwich. It was fantastic! My son & I both ordered from the sweet waffle menu and had ours topped with fresh strawberries and coconut (non-dairy) whipped cream. Oh my gosh, we were in heaven!

We also played games while we were there. Each person who plays games pays $5. You can stay as long as you like and play as many games as you want. After, walk a couple of blocks to enter Golden Gate park to walk off those waffles!

We'll be back!

Although there are some items that contain gluten (beer) or were processed in a facility (some toppings), the kitchen is 100% GF. Glutenous or cross contaminated items are prepared separately and can be excluded from the dishes. The chicken bites were good, but not as exciting as I expected. The mouse trap was yummy, and the plain mochi waffle with strawberries and coconut whipped cream was so good, and so rich. Fellow celiacs tested various dishes with Nima and got all smiles!

There are NON-GF items served here when we went, so I'm glad we asked before I ordered and told the owner I had celiac so he could be careful. I'm not sure why it's listed as dedicated GF. I didn't get sick, but this could've been a disaster if I were more trusting. :(

This place is amazing!! Gluten-free everything except 2 ice cream choices the staff will point out. You can choose board games to sit and play with family/friends ($5/Person) and enjoy coffee, waffles or chicken & fries or ice cream. We spent hours!! I’d give it 10 stars if possible!

There's a new gluten free restaurant in SF, and it's also a board game cafe! Gluten free waffles! Reasonable prices! Convenient to public transit! Please go and support this business. The food was tasty, the staff was friendly and happy to chat about food prep practices, and Nima gave my cheesy waffle sandwich the OK. I'm so thrilled this exists!
