I have celiac disease, and this place was the best food I ever had! There’s no cross contamination at all since the entire restaurant is gluten free. I got the fried chicken sandwich on a paleo bun with fries, it was amazing! I 100% recommend going here if you have any gluten allergy, the best gluten food in the area!

Amazing place to visit if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions. The entire menu is GLUTEN FREE and DAIRY FREE so many menu options for everyone open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Has a great grab n go selection in their refrigerated section to take and enjoy at home as well as gluten free pancake and cookie mixes to take home!

What a gem! Wonderful food and great ambiance. So happy to have found this dedicated GF place. Highly recommend the shakshuka for breakfast. The almond milk latte and chocolate chip cookie are wonderful choices for a quick afternoon snack. For dinner they offer a fine wine selection, great food choices (love the bison burguer) and different specials every week. Every time here I enjoy a delicious worry-free meal. Grateful!

This place is incredible! The entire menu is gluten free, with an emphasis on healthy food that is delicious and full of flavor. There’s a cute indoor area and outdoor patio seating. They also have grab and go items that you can take with you.

Fantastic experience here! It’s always hard to find spots to feel safe eating at when traveling but this is THE SPOT to check out. Dedicated gluten and dairy free - I can’t tolerate gluten OR dairy so this was a dream. Was able to order *everything* off the menu - imagine that! Staff was excellent as well. The store manager came over afterwards to check on everything and was a delight. I’m already trying to plot ways to come back every day!

I am SO HAPPY to be back in the LA area and to be able to dine at the two Source Cafes! (Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach) These restaraunts are totally gluten and dairy free AND feature the best in culinary delights par excellence - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your family and friends will enjoy dining with you because everything is so wonderful they won’t notice the difference. They carry lots of delicious take away foods, pastries, breads and healthy drinks as well. This is the only establishment I’ve ever been to where I know beyond any doubt that I don’t have to worry that I will accidentally be served gluten or dairy. Chef Amber, Beth and the entire staff are warm and friendly and take pride in what they have created. SO HAPPY TO BE BACK IN TOWN!

I love love love this place! As someone with a severe gluten allergy, this place is my go to. I haven’t had a good fried chicken sandwich in about a year now, but now I can finally indulge! The service was excellent and there are a ton of gluten free goodies and drinks in the grab’n’go section (the blue lemonade is to die for)! This place gets 10/5 stars from me.

Super cute decor in there as well! Very trendy and I love the turquoise accents.

With the exception of beverages, all food is gluten free and dairy free.

The menu is so expansive, there is something for everyone. From baked goods to juice/smoothies, as well as a full menu including broccoli pizza, fried chicken sandwich, avocado toast, and even salads and almond balls in their grab n go fridge!
