Gluten free bread was an extra $1.50 for my guac & bacon grilled cheese sandwich. The server seemed knowledgeable informing me that the french fries would have cross contamination.

I like the gluten free bread they use. Small bread but they triple-decker it. They have gluten free zucchini bread too and some soups and salads.

Had the grilled chicken press on gluten free bread. Delicious sandwich. Bread got soggy quickly but i didn’t mind. Awesome atmosphere and crowd!

Big GF menu. I ordered the chicken salad with bacon and cheese on GF flatbread. I was splitting with my mom so I told them to put the french fries that came with it on a separate plate to avoid cross contamination. They did, but as soon as I picked the sandwich up, their were a few straggler fries underneath it. I flagged someone down and asked them to remake me half of a sandwich. They did so quickly, but when I asked, "and this flatbread is GF right?", just to be sure, the waiter wasn't sure. He came back out and said it was, but I gave a 4/5 for due to this whole exchange. The food was delicious though! The best flatbread I have ever had. I asked which brand since they were so good, and was told they were made in house. I would return next time I am in the city for sure.

Fantastic gluten free menu. Almost all sandwiches can be made GF! BEST iced latte I've ever had. Strongly recommend if you're in the Chelsea area of NYC. Very pleasant workers.

What an excellent Avocado and Goat Cheese sandwich and gluten free! This place is a treasure with a huge gluten free selection!

Love getting sandwiches and breakfast here. I once bravely asked if the french toast could be made gluten free and was cheerfully told yes. As I was passing over my credit card a minute later I hesitantly asked, "About that french toast... The bread is dipped into a separate egg mixture right, not the same bowl as the wheat bread?" and the girl behind the counter's face turned completely white and she apologized profusely. Another time, after ordering staff came and found me to apologize that I'd ordered something they can't guarantee to be safe, and let me change my order and added a freebie GF treat in apology. So, my read is the counter staff is not super well-trained, but the kitchen staff knows what's up.

I'm gluten intolerant and was pleased with the fact that they had gluten free bread. I shamelessly asked a ton of questions and God bless the girl behind the counter, she checked with the kitchen a couple of times just to be sure about the answer. Just be sure to ASK about what you order...my food came with fries so I asked was it fried in its own oil - which it wasn't but I had to ask. They even had gluten free desserts which was nice to have options.

Gluten free French toast was very yummy especially with berry butter. Probable cross contamination.

I ordered a soup dish without tortilla chips (shared fryer), and without tortillas (cashier advised against). The meal came with both. I sent it back, but they simply removed the chips and tortillas from the plate and soup. I found two pieces of chips that they missed and got a refund. Staff was apologetic, but it’s not safe.

This place is really just another mediocre spot in the area. The service is extremely poor. Line moves so slow when they have spare employees walking around. Only came here for their gluten free option which is not safe to eat here when they can't even take your order correctly, and for someone with celiacs- this is a serious factor. I came here yesterday, they messed up on half my order and so I had to get rid of half the expected meal paid for. Came the day right after and they had my gluten free food mixed in the plate with food that had gluten. Why apologize for the first mistake and take my name down to then make it so much worse the next day? The inconvenience was terrible having to waste 40 minutes for a simple bacon egg and cheese. For their price this is not worth anyone's time trying to catch a meal on the go. Take your business elsewhere!!

We had good gluten free sandwiches. I asked for cross contamination and they told me they are very careful in kitchen but can not definitely give an insurance for being celiac friendly. I tried and had no problems despite of being very sensitive. Very good bread and delicious sandwich!

I had omelett with cheese and ham. The fries are made in same oil as wheatproducts so they switched from fries to fruits. The enviroment was helpfull and they even showed me the ingredients in the bread. We will come back!

Several great GF options for my 9 year old with celiac. They discovered they were out of gf pasta after we ordered and paid, but subbed a sandwich on gf bread and refunded the price difference right away. We also loved the brown rice bowl with black beans. Very satisfied.

Fun sandwich shop with breakfast options. Most food items are available GF. I had a turkey club sandwich- very good! They have GF pancakes and GF French toast. The atmosphere is casual. Order at the counter and choose your own seats.

I had a really great blackberry yogurt muffin at this place. They make all their baked goods in-house and always have a few gluten-free options. Plus GF bread for lunch/sandwiches.

Menu doesn't say anything about gluten other than that they offer GF bread but waitstaff is well informed. Had rice and beans for dinner and liked it so much we went back for breakfast the next day. Our server told me the home fries were cooked in a shared fryer, so I opted for the breakfast quesadilla on a GF wrap, so fries were not an issue. Delicious and filling! Safe for celiacs as long as you ask questions - would be nice if they spelled things out on the menu more.

Delicious!! Went to the one on Carmine and Bedford; A++ service and food. The place is super comfy inside and they have plenty of GF options to choose from. Very farm to table feel. Additionally, their GF bread is delicious (which can be rare). I would highly recommend stopping in. Oh, and another bonus is that not only do they have great coffee (which I drink black), they have great wine/bubbly/beer options too! I will definitely revisit.
