    Yes it is very celiac friendly but the options are still limited and the food....wasn't extraordinary. Mediocre at best.

    Large selection, wasn't crowded. The food didn't sit well with me, but I was already not feeling good. I had a pizza which was huge and cheap but tasted really good. Nice staff and its near uni of Chicago so there is a ton of options and good knowledge in Hyde park.

    Where to begin? Is Very kid and family friendly. They have a real baby changing table, not a plastic thing on the wall. So many gf options. Sushi (a little pricey) uses radishes cut to look like noodles (very tasty) instead of rice. The most amazing salads with quality ingredients. Grilled sandwiches with Udis bead and wonderful combinations with the freshest ingredients (around $9.50) fresh berries available as a side. Large portion of soups for the price $4.75. Best coffee my husband had all weekend. Oh and a very good selections of GF desserts. Marjolaine cake was so delicious! only $5!! The owner is a celiac so they are extra careful here. We're from California, but when anywhere in the vacinity, we'll be back. Highly recommend checking it out!

    My favorite restaurant (and I live in Michigan)! Their bread comes from a local bakery and is incredible. I highly highly recommend the chicken pesto and which and cheese and pepper bruschetta... but really everything is simply delicious.

    Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Separate gluten free menu with a lot of options! I had the chicken, artichoke, pesto and red pepper sandwich. It's grilled on Udi's bread. It was really good. Patricia was a great server to ask for.

    Wonderful food! I had a chicken and pesto sandwich with veggie chips. Prosciutto rolls were also great! Gluten-free menu.

    Very conscientious about cross contamination. The owner took the time to stop at our table and explain their practices when I expressed my concerns to the waitress. Nice selection and delicious sandwiches!

    Wonderful place, great tasting food, and a truly gluten free establishment that caters to people with gluten allergies and celiac disease. They even have 2 separate kitchens!

    Always excellent, I belive the owner cannot eat gluten.
