It seems they used to be more careful. The last 3-4 time I have gone I got sick. The last time I was sick all afternoon. Unfortunately, I can not eat here anymore. Just one more thing I will have to cook myself.

Ordered the Vegan pancakes said to be wheat, dairy, and egg free. Within 15 min was getting vertigo and having vision problems. Loved this restaurant years ago. Won’t eat here again.

It was a beautiful place but if you have a peanut allergy also STAY AWAY. They put peanut oil in all of the batter. They were very accommodating but my son was very disappointed when he could only have fruit and bacon.

They have a list of the pancake options that can be made gluten free. We had bacon as well, but not sure about the eggs. They were extremely fluffy and likely had a little pancake batter mixed in - something to ask about. My sensitive GF boy didn't get sick, so that says a lot!

We go here regularly for the gf peanut butter pancakes. Everything is slightly overpriced so I go elsewhere unless I'm in the mood for pancakes but it's worth it for the pancakes!

Incredible buckwheat pancakes! Staff is very knowledgeable about gluten in their products. Do note the the potato pancakes have pancake batter in them. Otherwise, a perfect choice for gf breakfast :)

Gluten free pancakes! A variety of options. Made mine w bananas in them and they were fluffy and delicious. Menu says they are not a completely gluten free environment but I felt fine after eating.

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.
