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

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.

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.

The strawberry GF pancakes are fantastic! Note that their maple syrup is not gluten free; however, the strawberry syrup that comes out with the strawberry pancakes is to die for. You need to go here!!

Maybe the best experience we've ever had dining out with celiac. Not only was the waiter aware of celiac disease, he even caught something that we didn't realize wasn't GF and suggested an alternative (turkey sausage for regular sausage). Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free, though. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, crepes... We'd be there every day until we tried everything, if we could only afford it.

Phenomenal. We are visiting from out of town and are tired of always having to get eggs and bacon at breakfast restaurants. So wonderful to have such a variety of GF pancakes.

Love the choice of pancakes they offer. Strawberry is my favorite with no whip cream. They serve thick cut bacon. Cooked well and never greasy. In fact our gluten free group has eaten there.

This place is amazing! My daughter ordered the gluten free chocolate chip pancakes and they were fabulous. They are very knowledgeable about which items are gluten free and use a specific area of the grill for only gluten free items.

Separate GF menu with several GF pancakes as an option. Wait staff said she asked cook to clean cooking surface prior to my order. Staff was receptive to GF request. Bacon is awesome. Visited two days in a row and would return (visiting CHL).

Their GF pancakes are so fluffy and delicious! I've been here 3 times and haven't gotten sick at all. We did takeout for Mother's Day and the GF orders came in a separate bag. Mine was marked gf in multiple places. They really only have the pancakes marked GF so they're all I've tried other than the bacon. I'm sure they could do eggs too but not waffles or breakfast sandwiches.

Delicious bacon pancakes! GF wasn’t on the menu, but my waitress was very knowledgeable about what could be made GF and also let me know about their dedicated cooking area for their GF pancakes. It was delicious and I felt great afterwards!

I would be cautious eating here if you are celiac. They technically offer gf pancake batter but it is cooked on the same grill top as gluten pancakes and when my partner asked about their cross contamination protocol they joked to just not tell me about the cross contamination risk with a 🤫. I dont know if that employee still works there but they've lost my trust and offended me when they implied celiac is all in the head or that my full consent about what exposure risk I might take is not needed or a joke. Some celiacs are more symptomatic than others with exposure but that doesnt mean they arent experiencing damage to their intestines all the same. Not cool.
