The waiter had no idea what gluten was and offered to ask the chef but then did not. I ordered an omelette and it was fine, but not great. Atmosphere was mildly unappealing.
gluten free by order
Just enjoyed a decadent meal, most items available GF (except the maple syrup, due to caramel coloring additive). No worries! The cherry kijafa blintz needs no syrup! We also enjoyed the corned beef hash omelet and a side of fruit and bacon. coffee was meh but everything else delicious! service was great!!! *not celiac, just sensitive
We were a little hesitant to eat here at first because me, my sister, and my mom all have celiac, and they told us they used the same griddle for pancakes as the regular ones. However, we were told they could use a separate pan for our GF pancakes. Me and my sister had chocolate chip pancakes, and my mom had the buttermilk pancakes. They were fantastic and none of us got sick!
Buckwheat pancakes very good!!!
My boyfriend has celiac, has gotten very very sick twice in the past few months. Both times talked to the manager directly who assured us they had the kitchen staff switch out all the utensils and that they would oversee the whole thing. I do not doubt they did, I just think for highly sensitive celiac customers there is an uncontrollable factor that they are unaware of.
They told us they could clean the grill but not guarantee and they would try. They wouldn't change gloves even though I asked them too they refused. The pancakes were delicious but my daughter stopped because she started to feel sick. Honestly after watching them (we sat by the kitchen) I just don't see how it could be safe. The waitresses are touching food on the plate when they are carrying them so it just can't be safe. Really bummed bc it was so good just not safe.
The gluten free pancakes were really good! Though the second time I went, I did have some symptoms that I'm pretty sure came from here. The third time I was fine, and they told me the gluten free food comes on a special color plate so watch for that and ask about it. They don't claim to be gluten free here, just "friendly", so celiacs may wish to avoid.
Amazing GF pancakes! I would highly recommend
This place was amazing and they have a separate gf menu as well as other gf options. They prepare everything in a separate area and on special plates! Very knowledgeable staff! It was heaven eating here! Very sensitive celiac and no problems!
I eat at this dinner every time I'm in town. Their menu is simple and their plan to prevent cross contamination awesome. I have never gotten sick from eating there (unless you count eating way to much). Best gluten pancakes around. The only breakfast joint I have found in 3 states that is awesome and delicious.
Menu has numerous clearly labeled GF options. Pancakes were fantastic!
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.
One of my favorite places to go. Their bacon is incredible. Their omelette are to die for. The pancakes are yummy. The crepes are fabulous. The coffee is phenomenal. I've never been sick or unhappy with them. Service is always exceptional. I'm passionate about this place!!
im extremely sensitive to gluten. It causes migraines and vomiting for hours. When I ordered the gluten free pancakes from The Original Pancake House, I told the waiter I not only wanted the gluten but I needed gluten free. He said "I understand" It took a long time for my pancakes to be cooked but it was worth it. I didnt get sick at all.
Update: I had to take 2 stars off went for breakfast got the gluten free pancakes and found plastic cooked into mine, grossed me out I can't go back now! The pancakes are so good, and the bacon is thick sliced and wonderful. I eat here often. The sausage patties and links are rolled in flour, but ask your waitress to have them not roll them in flour it takes a couple extra minutes
I ate here the day before Christmas Eve. I have celiac and have eaten here several times and the gluten free pancakes were very good. But this time I had a terrible reaction. I told the waitress I needed gluten free when she first came to the table, told her again when I ordered and she repeated it, but there was a mix up somewhere because I am certain that I was given regular pancakes. I have not been that sick since I went on a gluten free diet 8 years ago. Almost had to stay home and miss Christmas Eve dinner the next day. So be very careful and double check that you have gluten free food.
They have the best gluten free pancakes I have ever tasted. They have 8 different options of pancakes. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the St.Louis area
When they first opened they were very good..but i have been ill the last 3-4 times... This place may be good for those on a Gluten-free diet, but not for someone with celiac. ..my family and i have found other places to go that really care... and don't blow smoke....
When asking the wait staff about GF procedures to avoid x-contamination, they were not knowledgable. Considering the promotion of GF without preparation knowledge with regular food, I asked for the manager to explain the need for a knowledgeable wait and cook staff. I actually spoke to the owner who replied that I should leave.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed dining here this morning. It's always a challenge to find a restaurant that truly makes me feel safe about eating out. As soon as I mentioned Celiac Disease to our server, Molly, she explained that they have a separate grill, pointed out all the selections on the menu that are marked as gluten free options, and assured me that they understand how to control cross-contamination in the kitchen. Aaron, the manager, came out to our table three times to make sure I felt good about my meal and to let me know that they welcome questions. It felt wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy a meal out knowing the staff was well-trained and were taking care of me. In addition, the food was great, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance classy. Love this place!
Post script, I mentioned CC concerns on reviews to the manager. Regarding CC, manager said they have a catering grill they can use for the GF pancake, upon request. --- Trying for first time, asked about GF pancake. Waiter had ingredient list in his pocket, and offered us a sample. Very tasty, and along with tons of other menu options (eggs, meats, salads, etc...), plenty of choices for GF. Good quality is excellent and service great too. As others have noted, they don't have a dedicated grill. A small amount of cross contamination is tolerable for us. We will be back.
