Their owner and chef is celiac and he does an amazing job at having options for celiacs and those who don’t. As a celiac it’s amazing to be able to go out to eat with my family and know I’m safe.

The food was incredible!!! By far some of the best gluten free breakfast food we have EVER had. We had the eggs Benedict, cinnamon roll waffle, and the waffle pizza. All if it was very very good. Our server was phenomenal too. Would definitely recommend it to everyone

Specified I needed gluten free and was given a gluten filled english muffin. I trusted this restaurant because the owner has celiac and we’ve had good luck here before, plus the reviews on here are great, but after tasting the English muffin and seeing I was not charged more for gluten free the waitress informed me it was NOT gluten free. They comped the meal and gave us a gift card to come back, but now I’m in severe pain and all the hard work to get my iron levels up is gone in a few bites. Mistakes do happen, but be sure to triple check before eating anything.

Tons of delicious gluten free options! Their GF waffles are amazing and are cooked on a separate waffle iron. Almost all of their menu can be made gluten free. Delicious breakfast options for everyone!

Delicious and safe. Got a burger with an egg on top at 8am and it was amazing.

I had no earthly idea that gf waffles (or any waffles) could taste this good. Fantastic service too. We went on a Tuesday morning and there was no line. On the weekends there’s a waiting line out the door onto the sidewalk. Will definitely go back!

Absolutely incredible food and well worth the wait! Great options for any not-GF diners, but this is amazing for anyone gluten-free. GF pancakes are pretty easy to come by, but GF waffles aren’t. And they’re AMAZING! My breakfast sandwich was also incredible.

NO PANCAKES! Their GF was good (toast and waffles) but the kid really wanted pancakes and they don’t make them. Service was okay.

Pretty much everything can be made gluten free and the staff is knowledgeable about cross contamination etc. The cinnamon roll waffles were amazing!

No Idea... full. Call ahead for a reservation. Maybe this ad should be removed during high season... To quote the hostess “we’re just so small.” And don’t go by yourself. No counter and they clearly didn’t want to waste even a two-top on a solo diner. I resent this because I like to check out GF restaurants on my own before inviting others to join me someplace.

Saw all the great reviews today so decided to give them a shot. The choices are plentiful, so tasty, and a great atmosphere. The service is exceptional and the to be expected up charge was only on average $1.00! They wish to serve and not try to profit off of GF options. Please go when you are in the area! You will not be disappointed.

Wow is the first word that comes to mind. I have been dying to try this place and wish I hadn’t waited so long. I had the french toast monte cristo and it was amazing. Best part is the owner has celiacs so I felt safe eating here. Next time I am in Portland I will definitely be coming back!

I can’t say enough good things about Sinful Kitchen. I always feel safe eating here and my gluten-eating family and friends love it too. Be sure to make reservations if you are going on a weekend otherwise you’re looking at a long wait!

The food here is amazing. They can basically do their entire menu gluten free. They seem to be very safe because the owner has celiac. I would recommend that you make a reservation.

I recommend this restaurant to everyone! Just about everything can be made gluten free AND they use separate gluten free surfaces to cook their gluten free entrees. I frequent here because the food is amazing and so is the staff.

Excellent choices, gf items clearly marked! Worth the wait on weekends. Stuffed gf French toast, gf English muffins for all the Benedict’s, gf bread available. They only use Tito’s vodka - which is gf - for vodka drinks. They didn’t have any pancakes this visit, I think the menu changes from time to time. Great service & very knowledgeable staff!

Astoundingly good. Even with the many, many positive reviews, I still wasn’t prepared for how good it is. GF waffle pizza? My daughter rightly points out that this should have its own hashtag. And my other daughter, GF and not crazy about sausage or bacon, was thrilled with the variety of protein choices (including ham, tofu, bbq jackfruit, and more). And when the owner is Celiac, you know you’re in good hands. Make a reservation!

The staff and owners are friendly and extremely accommodating. The food is over the top. Favorites today - the eggs benny with crabmeat and avocado and lamb bacon. Came here for dinner and breakfast and gluten free offerings are the best. Try the muffins for a real treat!

This is the best place for breakfast to find everything you need gluten free. The staff is very kind and knowledgeable and will ask everyone in your party if you want any sides made gluten free (English muffin is very good). They are also beginning dinner soon and that menu looks amazing!

If you are visiting Portland, Sinful Kitchen is a must! I was informed that the owner has Celiac and therefore they have a dedicated prep space/waffle maker/tools in the kitchen, and our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about GF/dairy-free options. They have bread, pancakes, French toast, waffles, etc. I opted for the waffles as they are GF/dairy-free, and the waitress even brought the waffle mix (Golden Malted) out for me to read the ingredients. I would highly recommend this brunch spot!

Stopped here because of the reviews on our way to airport to leave Maine. Cute converted home with amazing gluten free offerings. This is a small local restaurant, and it looks like they regularly have a small wait time because of that. They also accept reservations. I had the strawberry and vanills stuffed gf french toast, which came with your choice of meat (bacon, breakfast sausage, ghost pepper sausage!!!, SPAM, pulled pork, and more, as well as home potatoes. Little details make this place unique: the mason jar hanging lights, the drawings on the walls from customers, the offerings like blueberry cola, to the locally made lavender-herb lotion in the restroom. and the FOOD. SO much for us gluten free-ers. We had a s'more muffin to start and took one home. they have cinnamon rolls! And all kinds of eggs benedicts and waffles. A real treat for us who are used to only a few things on a menu we can eat. Highly recommend this Sinful place for breakfast/brunch.

I can't rave enough about how amazing this place is. I have a rare allergy that makes it so much of the gluten free store bought food I cannot have. this place was so helpful by telling me brands that they use. We found amazing service, a relaxing atmosphere, and it wasn't loud even though they were full up on people. The food was honestly some of the best I have had at any restraunt - even before my diagnosis! I found myself enjoying it so much I lost track of anything else I was doing, to focus on the layers of flavors and texture. 34.00 for two people... and both of us were full. We will be taking more people next time. It will be a good idea to try to make a reservation, as they are always full.
