Almost the whole menu is GF and they have a lot of vegan options. I ate here without the fear of cross contaminated food. They have dedicated fryers for their GF food as well. I’ll definitely be returning here!

Not only did they carefully take care of my celiacs but I’m anaphylactic to legumes. The manager came over to check every ingredient with me. Eating out is scary for me but I was in great hands. This is my third time eating here, food is delicious and safe.

Unfortunately I got sick after eating here. Sadly loved the place and the food tasted great. I am a very sensitive celiac though.

Outstanding food, many gluten free, dairy free, and vegan options, including desserts. It pushed the limits of how much spicy I like personally, great for me but if you aren't fond of heat, I'd be sure to let them know.

This place was fantastic. Both GF and Vegan. The do have meat options as well. My chicken was great. Staci loved her salmon and cauliflower mash. Lisa enjoyed her salad. Great service. Welcome atmosphere. Delicious food. Worth the hour drive for sure. We will certainly be back. Even dessert was on point. Avocado Chocolate Mousse and Crepes were yummy. All 3 of us loved our main dishes. Plantains were fantastic. Don't walk. Run to the Purple Elephant. Reservations are recommended. Enjoy 😀
