    Excellent breakfast options. Family/owners are celiac. They do have regular wheat items but all GF are cooked separately. They know how to avoid cross-contamination. Our first time was Bearkats with our local Celiac Awareness Group so that should tell you something. Again food is always very good. Limited hours open though.

    Most pancakes are available gluten free. However, they are marked as 'gluten friendly' on the menu as they are cooked on the same griddle as wheat pancakes and so they cannot guarantee they are gluten free.

    Saturday morning and wife's gone, I can't cook Gluten free pancakes. Stop by the "original pancake house" for a to-go order of GF pancakes to take home to my boy. The don't to take out orders on weekends because they are too busy???? Strange?? Plus the restaurant was half empty. Bad business, bad customer service, lack of common sense, and just dumb. Thanks for nothing.

    They have a special menu that tells you which pancakes they can make with certified gluten free pancake mix. The pancakes are fluffy and have the same texture as a regular pancake, which is typically hard to find especially at a chain type restaurant. Our waitress was great; super attentive and timely even with being short staffed.

    Pancakes were excellent and served on a color coded plate to avoid cross contamination as much as possible. Service was very knowledgeable about gluten and very efficient with our needs. The coffee was spectacular. Server mentioned he grinds the beans himself in the morning and it really made a difference.

    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!

    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.

    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.
