Celiac

Did not listen to me when I said I wanted gluten free pancakes. Brought out regular ones. If the person I went with hadn’t also ordered pancakes and I could see they were the same I would have eaten them. 20 minutes after leaving I am having cramping. I don’t recommend going here if you are very sensitive.

Seriously ? These pancakes are HORRIBLE ! Completely uneatable . I chocked down one to be sure . But , I just can’t . 🤢 If you think theses are good GF pancakes you need to get out in the world . Wow just shocked someone liked these . I make better at home all the time and have had far better numerous places . I assume the regular pancakes are better . The 1 Star is for the GREAT service and descent coffee .

While I agree with Mike that the cross contamination is possible But the GF pancakes are delicious if you get a chance to try them.

If you are Celiac, this is not a safe location to eat at. All cooking is done in the same equipment as the gluten items. No separate space or dedicated waffle iron. Yes they have a gluten free menu but that's because they have ingredients that are gluten free but that's all. Major risk of cross contamination and getting sick.

OK here's my honest review going to the Original Pancake House with Celiac. They have several gluten free options, which is super cool. They can make any pancake gluten free, however, I have no idea what ingredients are in their add ons for pancakes and honestly I'm not sure the wait staff fully knows either. Due to that lack of confidence, I ordered plain GF pancakes. They tasted excellent and I highly recommend. The caveat is how sensitive are you and how willing are you to take a legit chance in potentially getting glutened? They do cook the pancakes on a separate griddle, but they use the same cooking utensil as regular pancakes, so the potential is there for cross contamination. I would avoid the waffles because they are cooked in the same waffle iron. I took a chance on the pancakes and I think I will be safe. I would stay away from ANY sides as they are cooked on the same griddled as the gluten foods. If I get glutened I am confident it is because I did not ask the right questions related to meat prep BEFORE I took a bite of the ham I ordered. So if you decide to roll the dice on this one and hope against hope because you just want to have a "normal" meal out with your family because celiac is HARD, I would recommend sticking with straight up GF plain pancakes. Hope that helps you all! Have a good day!
