GF food is prepared on the same grill as the regular food and there are no extra precautions in the kitchen. On gheir website they make it seem like you could realy eat gluten free pancakes here, but that is clearly not the case. I wouldn’t even be sure about something like the egg dishes they serve.

Gluten free pancakes, waffles and crepes. Excellent food, knowledgeable staff. Yummy! Not for celiacs as they cook on the same grill.

I’ve come here in the past but first time since all of Covid. I personally love the GF Banana Nut Pancakes! Highly recommend. They make a note of the allergy and I have yet to ever get sick after eating here.

Manager explained the location is gluten friendly - dedicated waffle machine - but not dedicated space. The server and manager were very knowledgeable and were able to accomodate my son’s allergy, cleaning the area, making the food separately. The food and service were outstanding. My son ate the gluten free waffle, eggs and bacon. It was the best breakfast he had in a long time.

There were so many options: waffles, pancakes, French toast. I got the cinnamon French toast and bacon, and it was amazing! I kept saying that I wished it was just a little bit gross, so I knew for sure it was GF. It tasted non-GF, and I was worried I somehow got the wrong food. (I didn’t.) My food came out on a yellow plate; all other plates were white, and I was assured it was cooked on separate GF cookware - without even having to ask! I would 100% recommend this place. (I have celiac.)

I don't know why they are on this site?! They do not have a gluten free menu, or gluten free pancakes. I had scrambled eggs and sausage. Thank God I didn't sick, but I wasn't full either. It wasn't worth my time but my family was fine.

They are really good at telling people what’s gf on the menu and they use a separate pancake griddle for the gf pancakes to make sure that there’s no cross contamination

The gf pancakes and French toast were fantastic and for a side you can order four thick slices of bacon which is amazing!!

GF pancakes were fluffy and could barely tell they were GF. Variety of flavors was great!

They had waffles on menu but wouldn’t let me have the same flavor of pancakes in a waffle.

I eat here often with no issue. I order a side of Bacon and Eggs, coffee/ cream.

They do offer Gluten friendly pancakes however they are prepared and cooked in the same area as the other pancakes I was told. So if your celiac like myself that’s not an option.

They staff and management are very helpful in making certain I am served a safe meal. I so appreciate that.

The staff was amazing! Very sweet and understanding about celiac. (They cook on separate grills for us celiacs) the pancakes are GF, and the hashbrowns are too (I asked to be sure and they didn't put any seasoning) overall I am satisfied :) they are unsure about their syrup, so make sure you bring some GF pancake syrup from home!

This place is amazing!!! For starters there are so many options for gluten-free people that you can have almost anything you want. They bring out gluten free on a red plate so you know it’s gluten free. The staff is very knowledgeable and kind. We thought about moving from Georgia to here for this restaurant!!!

I just went to this location on Monday and had a phenomenal experience. While the building is a little out dated and they only accept cash or check, the food was delicious. They don’t have a gluten free menu but I communicated with my waitress and she had a friend with celiacs so she knew the seriousness of the allergy. She stated they have a gluten free batter and a dedicated grilling area for the pancakes. You can add chocolate chips, blueberries, or any simple mix ins; you just have to ask. I got the Western Omelette which was made with four eggs and huge and it also came with a side of three pancakes. I forgot how much I loved pancakes, and I’m just waiting to go back!

Best gluten free pancakes in the county with a number of toppings available. There are also excellent omelets that are gluten free.

Very busy weekend breakfast. Register online to avoid long waits. Place is noisy with crying and shouting kids so ask for a quiet table. Its out gluten free go to breakfast place.

Staff is extremely knowledgeable on what is and what is not gluten free - asked me if it were an allergy or preference and when I told her allergy she took extra precaution. They even bring the toast out on a red plate rather then white, I was told if it does not come out on a red plate do not eat it.

Food was extremely delicious, omelettes are MASSIVE - could easily feed 2 people. Can make pancakes and waffles GF. I will definitely be going back!

Menu well-marked, separate plate color for GF

Even though they use Pamela's baking mix, which is what we use at home, it's fun to be able to go out for breakfast worry free. Have been to OPH many times and never had any issues afterward. Most recently had apple crepes which were great and nice to be able to get a short order (2) instead of full order (3).

Several outlets in the Twin Cities area and we have had success at 4 - the Roseville location is stark and felt cold but the other locations we've been to are very homey and cozy. Awesome thick bacon and coffee served in mugs which seem to be handmade, adding to the cozy feel.

The food was delicious. There are many gluten free choices including pancakes, waffles, and some of the meat. The omelettes are baked and puff up nicely. This is a chain so you must ask server how they cook it. At this store they have a separate griddle for gluten free.

My favorite breakfast spot in Columbus. Has a ton of gluten (friendly: meaning they have gf batter but it is cooked on same stove top), flavors my favorites have been blueberry, pumpkin, and gingerbread! So many different options. Even has gf waffles and of course your traditional eggs, omelets, etc

I absolutely love this place! The menu labels items as gluten friendly. I talked with the waitress and she said to state you are allergic and they will clean the grill for gluten free pancakes. She advised against the waffles because the waffle iron is difficult to clean thoroughly. Also she said the crepes come out thicker than normal crepes due to the batter. I opted for the pancakes and they were delicious. I think if you just stick to the pancakes and explain your allergy you will be fine.
