    My son loves the Purple Rooster Cafe. He is always thrilled with his large chocolate chip pancake and delicious bacon. The waitresses always ask if we have any dietary restrictions, and my four-year-old feels empowered to ask for his gluten free choices. Sometimes it takes a while for the food to come out because it is all freshly (and safely) prepared. We have eaten gluten free, dairy free and gluten dishes here, and all members of our family have been satisfied.

    Good breakfast! Unique offerings. Friendly staff. They have a small all gluten free bakery, really tasty items- they had this bread with raspberry filling tasted very similar Entamens rasp danish- was unbelievable! Still thinking about it a week later!

    Eat here. Delicious! Full breakfast, lunch, and goodies! Waitress was awesome. Asked about dietary issues right away. Took it upon herself to check which goodies were gluten and dairy free!

    I’m so thrilled to have found this place. The owner/baker is gluten-free and so completely understands and follows strict separation of any gluten free food. The menu was really extensive and the breakfast sandwich I got was delicious. Baked goods are all gluten free as well. I’ll definitely be back!

    My first time here and will definitely return when I am in the area! We were asked if we were both GF and I indicated just me. They have an extensive gluten free menu including pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese, and pizza. I am not used to having so many options for GF items, so I was very happy about the selection. When I placed my order, the waitress was sure to say "And, your gluten free order?" I noticed on her order pad, she made a clear "Gluten free" section to separate my order from my non-GF son's order. I had the chocolate chip pancakes, which were huge and very fluffy. They were delicious and did not have that grainy texture that most GF items have. My son (who has no dietary restrictions) also loved his meal. I can't wait to go back!

    I am so glad I found this little gem! My daughter, who has celiac disease, is highly sensitive to cross contamination and both times we've gone she has had no reaction. The owner herself is sensitive to cross contamination and uses separate cook ware for gluten free I learned after speaking with her. The staff are sensitive to the awareness of celiac and gluten free as well as super friendly. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is cute and cozy. I 100 percent reccommend this place!

    This place was FANTASTIC! I got s delicious gf quesadilla. I also got two desserts. A muffin and a brownie. The staff was wicked nice and knowledgeable. I'm lucky I don't live closer or I'd lose my entire paycheck to this place. They also have options for vegans. :)

    Had such a great experience with my kids this morning! My daughter (3yrs old) is celiac and was so excited that she could order anything off her "special" menu! Her French toast was delicious as was mine (I ordered from the regular menu). Service was fantastic as well! Can't wait to go back!

    GREAT Find! The owner is GF therefore is extremely diligent on taking caution to not cross contaminate. So happy we found this place, I can feel comfortable my daughter will not get sick after dinning. The 2nd best part is you’re not paying $11-15 for GF Pancakes. It’s all served at NORMAL prices and the food is outstanding!

    Best GF breakfast around! Service is always great. They have separate GF menus for adults and kids that include both the basics as well as some creative options. As a celiac, we have never had an issue after eating here.

    We met my parents here to celebrate my daughter's birthday - both my kids (8 and 10) are Celiac. When I told my son that he could order "ANYTHING" on the menu his eyes just about popped out of his head and his jaw dropped. The waitress was amazing - first question was if anyone had allergies. Love the kitchy-ness of the place: mis-matched mugs, old airline flatware - very fun. My kids both had GF pancakes, a rare treat when eating out. They also split a tasty GF pumpkin/cinnamon chip muffin - we had to order a couple to take home! Our non-GF food was delicious, too. Plenty of hot coffee refills and they even had warm apple cider for the kids. It's a 1/2 hour drive for me, an hour for my parents, and we will be meeting at the Purple Rooster Cafe again as soon as we can! My son already has it planned for his birthday in February (although I want to go before that!). Well done and thanks for making our visit worry-free! Happy kids, happy parents :-)

    This place is out of this world amazing. When we sat down, we were greeted politely and asked if we needed any gluten free menus. The gluten free menu is HUGE! It includes muffins, sandwiches, grilled cheese, French toast, pancakes, bread, as well as traditionally gluten free items (eggs, bacon, homefries, etc). I ordered a muffin and gluten free apple cinnamon French toast, and both were absolutely DELICIOUS. Everyone there is friendly and seems to be extremely knowledgeable about celiac, gluten free food, cross contamination, etc. The cafe is cute with a homey atmosphere and service was excellent. I can't say enough good things about this place- if you get the chance, GO!

    Food was good and we were happy with the options, which included breads and pancakes. However the service was extremely slow considering it wasn't full. Took over 20 minutes to get our food after waiting over 15 to order. Seemed like they were making one tables food at a time.

    They have a HUGE GF menu. I've tried the s'mores French toast, banana walnut pancake, chicken quesadilla and grilled cheese on cinnamon raisin. Everything is delicious and I get great service every time I come here. They are super serious about their gluten free and have everything separate. The owner is gf as well. Very small quaint place and very good food.

    Absolutely amazing food and great staff!!!! Lots of yummy choices for my daughter who is trying to eat gluten free. Also, if you are a vegetarian, the veggie sausage and bacon was delicious. Lots of choices from eggs, and homefries to smore pancakes with marshmallow and hot fudge. Very tiny and quaint place with an extremely friendly staff.

    Honestly, after finding out that I had a gluten allergy, I wasn't sure that I'd ever have food that was as tasty as I once enjoyed...I am Happy to say that Purple Rooster Cafe has proven me wrong...Not only was the service wonderful, and very hospitable...The food was impeccable! The breakfast I had here, was actually the best ever...GF or otherwise! I brought along my boyfriend and his Grandparents, and they were actually equally impressed...I am looking forward to going back ASAP

    Nice menu of basic American breakfast & lunch foods. Three kinds of GF breads. Dedicated GF grill. Nice staff. Peaceful atmosphere. Daughters (not GF) and I (GF) very much enjoyed our lunch here. I had breakfast food (eggs, bacon, home fries & toast); they had lunch fare (sandwiches). [May 2012] [Update May 2013] - love Love LOVE this place! Yummy food. Breakfast, lunch, baked treats... You can't go wrong. The staff is super friendly. They take the responsibility of serving GF food VERY seriously. To have the option of GF pancakes and french toast in a restaurant is just delightful. Whole family of six loves dining here. Prices are good, too. (MORE UPDATE - I wish there were a way to reply to other's posts. Amanda's typo in her review is unnerving. Trust me, the gluten free grill is DEDICATED, not defecated!))
