    If you are the first one there to order waffles, it will guaranteed gluten free since they wash the waffle iron the night before. Totally worth it! the waffle and chicken were so huge I had to ask for a box. love that they don't carry plastic, so be prepared if you want to take home leftovers.

    Gluten free options but not completely celiac friendly. I got a normal egg/bacon/potato breakfast plate but came for the excitement of chicken and waffles. Fried chicken is completely gluten free, fried in rice flour/non contaminated fryer, but even though the waffle batter is GF They used shared waffle irons with non GF.

    Amazing gluten free waffles and fried chicken!! The fryer is dedicated but always good to ask if it still is especially if you're a celiac like me! The waffle maker is also used for wheat waffles but I asked them to clean it, they were very accommodating! I did not get sick at all and can't wait to try their sandwiches which you can order with gluten free bread! Yum !

    mochiko chicken and waffles! well, if you manage to make it in early enough before they run out of waffle batter, which is quite early and daily. if that you're in that boat, like this girl, then the kitchen might accommodate you by putting some of that lovely chicken on a bright salad, all of which are gluten free. they also have a wide selection of lovely hot teas with cute names.
