This was my favorite Montpelier restaurant before I began eating GF. The GF offerings vary by location. This location has buckwheat crêpes. I am not a fan. It really negatively impacts my favorite dish (Sassquash) and the sweet crêpes. I have not found one I really like with the buckwheat batter. This location does not have chickpea batter, which I think is better. For me, it's no longer a treat to eat here. I only eat here if I have to. They do not have a dedicated gf griddle at this location either. If you ask, they will wipe it down.
Gf crepes where really tasty. Would mention the mix would probably be better with savory crepes but it worked well for the sweet one I tried. Prices where decent, it has a good vibe and great coffee/ tea selection. Probably not celiac friendly although they did ask if it was a serious allergy.
Buckwheat crepes are prepared on a clean surface. Counter staff knew what was safe and not (e.g. anything from the fryer not). Unfortunately my daughter found the crepe grilled cheese not to her taste - the texture is a bit stiff and dry. The dessert crepe was better as the filling moistened it. Felt very safe!
The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and the restaurants safety precautions. Good food!! We have eaten there a couple of times and my daughter has not been sick. Definitely recommend!
They seem to have overcome the mishaps of previous reviews - the fries are no longer marked GF, not is the veggie burger. Crepes are great, the GF bread for the burgers/sandwiches is just meh (I think it’s Udi’s), but you really come here for the crepes so. Not a ton of GF appetizer options, but I eat here all the time and they’re definitely the most celiac-friendly in town, maybe tied with Jewel of India.
i didn’t actually eat there because i saw that they didn’t have any pancakes, just buckwheat crepes, which sounded kind of gross. can’t leave a real review because i didn’t try anything but just warning you that the menu is limited and there are no pancakes
Went in for breakfast and they didn't have the pancakes available. As a family traveling with children most of you know that you have to plan your every move. Needless to say I'm frustrated, disappointed, and angry to be scrambling at the last second finding an alternative breakfast place.
The French fries are marked GF. When I asked the waitress, she said that the fries were cooked in the same oil as breaded items, but the temperature of the oil would kill any cross contamination. I explained that was not correct and she genuinely listened and said she would tell the manager as she didn’t want anyone to get sick. The crepes were good and I didn’t have any reaction after eating there, but beware of the fries.
I was here in early June 2017 and the staff behind the counter seemed to understand celiacs and they promised they would keep everything separate. the crepe was delicious. I am extremely sensitive and did not get sick. Also, they put a little flag in the middle of my crepe to show that it was "allergy"... which impressed me
This review is for skinny pancake inside the Burlington airport. They have a gluten-free crepe batter. I asked the counter staff if it might be celiac-safe, and was told they can sanitize the equipment and surfaces before making a gluten-free crepe. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Crepe was good and I didn't get sick at all!
I got the Cannelloni crepe and the apple crispy, option for gluten free, they state they wipe down the cooking surface and I had little allergy flags in my food which is a good sign! Very delicious. I was slightly weary because of the volume of crepes they were all cooking on the same slabs, but so far so good. Long line and long wait for weekend lunch.
I've gotten sick here a couple times. Once there were crumbs in my salad. And another time they gave me a gluten crepe. The food is fine, but not a good restaurant to go to if you have a sensitive allergy or are celiac.
Solid breakfast. Crepes were delicious. As soon as I said gluten free, the cashier asked if it was an allergy, and assured me that they will sterilize the equipment for me, as well as helped me chose safe options to eat. The buckwheat crepe was a bit dry, but the maple syrup helped make our apple, cheddar and sausage crepe a very enjoyable meal.
Tasty! Staff seemed knowledgeable about cross contamination issues. We took a chance on the crepes, they are cooked on a cleaned (not dedicated) griddle. The staff changes gloves and uses separate utensils. There were other gf options aa well. We tend to react with 2 hours, it's been 4 and so far so good! I would trust it for a subsequent visit. Try the apple cider and the ice cream, they were delicious!
I agree with just about everyone here, this place is well worth the visit but most folks now know this so expect lines at peak times. Food- and gf-wise, delicious! Both sweet and savory are an adventure your taste buds will enjoy. Ingredients are sourced locally too, so grab a fork and wrangle up a gf crepe topped with some free range syrup and cage free strawberries. Oh, and they have a dedicated crepe griddle and utensils. Bonus!
