We had the most wonderful dinner! They were so helpful to make sure I had all I needed! The gf flatbread with the lamb topped humus was soooo good! The pork belly and watermelon salad was also perfectly seasoned and delicious! The best part was the pork loin with sweet potato mash and garlic spinach….topped with the most incredible onion jam….y’all…..it was so Divine! I can honestly say, this is the first place I have ever been that I did not have to ask for a salt shaker! PERFECTLY SEASONED FOOD!!!! The service was AWESOME too! Make sure you make a reservation because this place is worth it!

This is one of the only places in town that I feel safe eating at. The power lunch is always so great and dinner has been fabulous every time I’ve been. GF flatbread is always so yummy and I’m informed that it was cooked separately each time. Highly recommend

I was super impressed with the amazing gluten free options, from the crispy squid to the hummus with gluten free flatbread to the flourless chocolate cake. It felt like a “normal” restaurant experience which is so rare.

This is one of my favorite higher end restaurants in Athens. I love the veggie plate and always feel safe and comfortable here. Also, the gf flat bread is delicious and the waitress has always gone above and beyond to prevent cross contamination with the bread dipper situation.

I love eating here! It is one of the few restaurants where I can eat a three course meal. I like the hummus with gluten free flat bread (I have celiac and have had it several times and have not gotten sick), field green salad, and any of their gluten free entries can usually be made dairy free as well. They usually also have a dessert I can eat. A must visit location!

Knowledgeable staff; gluten free flatbread is not for sensitive or allergic individuals because it is cooked in a shared cooker and on shared cookware. However, they were happy to provide my chicken salad on a bed of lettuce and had no problems with my request for a glove change. The vinegar soda is full of antioxidants and has all the benefits of acv.
