    Amazing food. Super nice owner. Menu notes gluten free items. I had the yam waffle and it was just perfect!

    Had GF Eggs Benedict for Sunday brunch. There is only 1 guy that seats people, cooks, and serves so be prepared to wait awhile for food depending on how busy it is. I am told his wife occasionally will also be there to help but didn't see anyone else there today. We got there at 9:30 when they opened and were the first one's there with no wait time and friendly service. Everyone enjoyed their food and my husband said the bloody Mary was plain but excellent.

    We found this little gem one night and loved it. The owner/server/chef is amazing and made sure to accommodate my dietary means. We had onion rings and fried tempora veggies to start. My husband had non-gf sausage rigatoni which he said was delicious. The sausage was made in house by the owner! I had the pork Wiener schnitzel and it was delicious! We will deffiently be back for brunch and to try all the gf items!

    I love their gf French toast, especially with all those syrups. Definitely one of the better ones I've had in town. My boyfriend and I have gone here many times because there are tons of gf options and there's never a line, but the last few times we've been I've been underwhelmed. I'll keep this on my short list of places to go when I'm starving and impatient, but there are certainly better brunch options in Portland. They could make some improvements.

    There are too many good restaurants in the area to waste time here. I was happy to find no line for Saturday brunch, but soon learned why. The service was no good, we sat for about 10 min. before being acknowledged, and were never offered anything to drink but water. Our server continued service at this poor level through the meal, and there were only five tables counting ours. The menu boasts a variety of gluten free options (a fact that escaped the server), but unfortunately the food is a terrible disappointment. I ordered the Huevo Rancheros, and what I received was just two eggs slapped onto a huge pile of black beans. The 'spicy jalapeƱo' salsa was very sweet (??), but not spicy at all...I'm actually not sure they didn't accidentally give me mango salsa instead. Also, the menu advertises guacamole with the dish, but doesn't mention that it's only a tablespoon, and consists of a couple large pieces of tomato with a splash of avocado for color. In short, if you need to eat gluten free, and simply can't wait in a line for a good restaurant...there's always Slide Inn, just don't come with any good expectations.

    After my first time at Slide Inn I was thrilled. Lots of gluten-free options. But the second time: they brought me fish and chips that were not gluten free on accident. While they have a separate fryer, it's not safe because of human negligence.

    I normally wouldn't write a review, but after being sick for 3 days from this place I guess I should warn people. Our experience was almost a joke! It started off with ordering a cider that I checked was GF. The over-worked waitress brought me a normal beer on tap, which I didn't realize wasn't a cider until 2 huge sips. A lot more happened involving dead flies & a rude chef, but I'm too sick and tired to type... Bottom line be careful here.

    Previous reviewer was right, lots of really good gluten free options and my girlfriend is vegan and she was equally stoked. The gnocchi were awesome. In addition I tried the gf happy hour crepes and also had a plate of kale chips. Incredibly cheap. The night we went they had happy hour all night which was Monday. Might check their web site for happy hours though. I heard brunch was really good, so I can't wait to go back one of these weekends!!

    Gluten Free options galore!!! They have so many options, I had the gnocchi (Potato dumplings) in parsley pesto with good!! My girlfriend had the vegan black bean chili w/ corn and peppers with vegan sour cream, both on the Happy Hour menu and super cheap. Plus they have German Beer!
