I don't know why they are on this site?! They do not have a gluten free menu, or gluten free pancakes. I had scrambled eggs and sausage. Thank God I didn't sick, but I wasn't full either. It wasn't worth my time but my family was fine.

I used to go here all the time; they make gf pancakes on the same surface as regular pancakes, but Im not too sensitive to that. The reason why Im never going back is, on two different occasions they didn't make my pancakes gluten free at all, and I got extremely ill.

They use the same surfaces and utensils for the gluten free pancakes/crepes. They know nothing about cross contamination

We specifically went here while passing through Cincinnati so my son with celiac could get pancakes. They have GF pancakes but don't understand cross contamination. We asked for the manager and she told us all the pancakes were made on the same griddle, even the GF ones. No soliton or real concern offered by her. He settled for eggs and bacon but said the eggs weren't good.

Decided to try this OPH even though there was not a current review on FindMeGlutenFree. I was pleasantly surprised by the knowledge and concern of all staff. While not 100% safe because they prepare the gf food nearby and in same kitchen with the main menu items, I have not gotten sick at time of this review (7 hours after eating). This OPH has a dedicated fryer and in addition to eggs and meat items that are prepared separately from main menu items, you can get gf pancakes, waffles and crepes. I added blueberries to my pancakes and got the blueberry compote, which I was assured was made with corn starch and not a wheat thickener.

They do not have gf bread so you cannot order gf French toast.

The pancakes are prepared in the same place, on the same griddle. They did say they could clean the griddle before making mine, but I opted for the safest route- the omelette. Those are made in omelette pans that aren't used for anything else. The menu is clearly marked for the GF items. Things like sausage are cooked in flour.

There is no dedicated gluten free menu but the menu does say gluten free options available for the pancakes and the waffles

My son had the gluten free pancakes eggs and bacon. He didn’t get sick! lol which is always the most important part. Besides taste.

He said the pancakes were ok, but he’s used to homemade so that a 4 star rating from him.

Service was quick even though it was busy.

The server told us that the gluten friendly pancakes are NOT gluten free, only gluten friendly.

Do not come here if you have celiac disease. They are only “gluten friendly” for prior who don’t have an allergy and are avoiding gluten for other, non allergy, reasons.
