One of my absolute favorite places to have breakfast, and has been for years. Though they do offer Gluten Free* options on their menu, they specifically state that there is no guarantee against cross-contamination as they do not use separate cooking equipment for their gluten free items.

GF labels on the menu. GF pancakes were excellent. Popular place so you may have to wait for a table.

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!
