    I've been coming here regularly since I got diagnosed. I had never had any issues until recently, but in the past two months I've gotten glutened here twice. After the first time I let them know and they were very concerned, identified the issue, but it just happened a second time. While I know that they take Celiac disease very seriously, I am not planning on eating here again.

    Good vegan food. Staff understand importance of avoiding cross-contamination

    One of the best restaurants in Rochester for gluten free, if not the best. They make a majority of their items gluten free (regular menu items can be optional gf if they aren't already-occasionally their special is not gf). The staff is very knowledgeable on gluten free and celiac practices. PLUS they have amazing baked goods for gf! I go her very often and I've never had a problem. Go on Friday and get a gluten free donut! You won't regret it.

    This is one of my go-to spots! I’m gluten-free vegan, so usually have limited options at most restaurants- but can eat over half of the meals on the menu here. The staff is very accommodating to food allergies and will make your meal “celiac friendly” if you ask.

    My husband and I both loved our meals. We tried the Mac and Cheese, he had a “compost” plate, and I got a GF grilled cheese. I am also allergic to dairy, so it’s a treat to really go to town on the comfort foods at a good vegan restaurant with so many GF options. We will be back next time we visit Rochester.

    Have GF options and the “garbage plate” is soooo good but I felt sick multiple times after I’ve eaten here..

    Celiac friendly, but the food was disgusting. I could barely eat any of my dish, and my husband only ate half of his. The tofu was dry and over seasoned, the traditional fries were very dry, and the sweet potato fries were undercooked. It was just a badly done meal. The only reason it doesn't get one star is that I didn't get sick. And they are totally vegan, not vegan friendly. I don't care about that but some do.

    Lots of gf options, even desserts. Their gf bread was tasty. Aword of caution to Celiac diners: Omission beer is NOT gf (even though they label as so on their menu)

    Lots of gf items on the menu, and they will prepare your meal "celiac safe" if you ask. I especially liked the Buddha bowl, which was both tasty and healthy.

    Absolutely gluten friendly! Very quaint, peaceful place with great lighting. I brought my 4 year old daughter there for lunch, and she had "gf mac and cheese nachos" with a gf chocolate peanut butter smoothie. I had the gf salad with craisins, goat cheese and avocado. The best salad of my life! Vegan place...I felt healthy after eating that salad! We plan on going there for lunch again. Very friendly guy who greeted and seated us. Great experience! Side note: Park on the street and not the small lot behind the building as it is tight to back out of a parking space. I didn't do a k turn to get out of my space...it was more of an asterisk!

    Wow! I am gluten free and had no idea that vegan food could be so fantastic. While I waited for my gf vegan baked mac and cheese, I was served (at my request) a lovely slice of herbed gf toast. Mac and cheese was very flavorful and rich. I did not finish it so I could try desserts. Glad I did- the raw blueberry/strawberry bar is like a sumptuous gf tangy cheesecake and the ginger gf cookie is huge, yummy and moist. Son had a large price of "island cake with buttercream frosting, which is not gf, but they had gf piña coloda cupcakes with same well made frosting. Wait staff are super friendly, attentive, and accommodating. Alt radio music not too loud. Casual setting. Good value for price.

    Lovely little cafe with a small dining room and a few outdoor seats. The entire menu is vegan, and 90% of it is available gluten-free (the only exceptions when I was there were dishes with seitan). Some GF desserts, but celiacs beware that they're kept in the same display case as the non-GF desserts.I had the gluten-free mac and "cheese", which was very tasty! Everyone in our party, vegans and non-vegans alike, were very happy with their meals.
