Great gluten free options. The staff is extremely knowledgeable. The gluten free bread is delicious. I had the split pea and the dill pickle soup with a BLT. I will definitely be going back.

I love eating here for lunch! The daily soup options are always delicious, and they make their own gluten free bread for sandwiches. I got a club sandwich, which held together well! Prices are very affordable for a delicious lunch break.

They were very reassuring and were confident that there would be no cross contamination. I had a Tuna Sandwich and some amazing Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Happy I found this place

Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They informed me that they have a separate grill in the back for grilled GF sandwiches, a separate toaster, and are happy to use fresh, uncomtaminated condiments if you request them to do so. You just need to ask them to mark your food “allergy.” Their GF bread comes fresh from Sugar Kisses Bakery which is also in Berkley! Lunch was very affordable and I will definitely be back! :)
