We were very nervous about eating here as there was only 1 review. We called ahead and were informed that the staff would clean the griddle before cooking any GF food. The waitress was not very knowledgeable but promised to be careful. The side of bacon needed to be sent back b/c she forgot to indicate it needed to be cooked separately. Overall the food was fine and my daughter did not get sick, which is the most important aspect of eating out for her.

My family is celiac and I have been going here for many years and have never had a problem with cross contamination. Their staff is very old school and very friendly and go out of their way to accommodate us. I am so sensitive to gluten that even a smidge of a breadcrumb will leave me miserable for days so I really appreciate this restaurant and I hope they stay in business for many years to come. My family has some pretty serious allergies. This is one of the only local restaurants I can trust with my gluten allergies as bad as they are and I appreciate them so much.

I’ve gone here a couple times and never gotten sick. The wait staff is super knowledgeable and nice!!! Their pancakes are bomb - they taste like normal pancakes to me and my non-celiac mom thinks so too! It’s always a risk with a flour kitchen but they have a separate cook area and I’ve been alright and enjoyed myself!

The service was really good. Very clean and comfortable environment. It’s not a dedicated GF restaurant, but my son says he had zero cross-contamination- he knows almost immediately if he is cross-contaminated. There was a great selection of GF options as well. We will absolutely be back!

There’s a dedicated GF pancake menu online with a solid variety of pancakes. GF pancakes are very good, and it’s nice to have choices beyond buttermilk.

Complaints- once I got glutened. Their GF pancakes taste very similar to their regular pancakes and I didn’t realize until I was halfway through the meal. Now I have my family try a piece first. Also, they are super expensive, and the GF pancakes are really tiny now. I haven’t eaten there since.

However, ever since I got glutened I have been asking them to please double check that they’re GF, and they have been writing it on the box to let me know they saw it.

It’s expensive so we don’t eat here often, but it’s nice to have the option. I wish they would expand to crepes.

They have items marked gf, and even offer gf griddle items, however, there is only 1 griddle so risk of cross contamination is high. Other items are prepped in a separate kitchen area and are much safer. Their omelettes are amazing!
