Always a good option. The gluten free pancakes are often marked with a stick and appearance is slightly different than the regular pancakes but equally delicious. If you do the potatoes i am usually told that there is a potential concern for cross contamination because of the sausages (i think it was) that are done very close by on same grill and contain gluten but i very rarely have an issues! A go to spot for me forsure!!

The food is great and they give huge portions! The staff was very knowledgeable and considerate with my requests. They can do gluten free pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon and ham. Sausages and toasts of any kind are off limits. They can also do some omelettes gluten free. They gave me a warning of the hash browns saying cross contamination may occur, but I didn’t react to it afterwards. Highly recommend!

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.
