    This is our favorite restaurant. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable about Celiac and truly safe GF dining. GF menu is extensive and their cinnamon roll pancakes are to die for - better than regular ones. Service is always top notch. Too bad they stopped serving dinner. But it's still a great breakfast/brunch/lunch place. The only downside is that they do not have a dedicated fryer, so don't expect to be able to eat their fries.

    I had a SANDWICH for the first time in 13 years. It was the most delicious club I've ever had. GF blueberry muffin easy to die for!

    I had the turkey club with bacon, and it was the highlight of my day! So good! It came with a side salad and I didn't expect much from the side salad after the delicious and filling sandwich (great bread) but the vinaigrette made it soooooo delicious! I was very pleasantly surprised. Great stuff!

    I come here all the time and have never once been sick from it. I usually order the gf club with salad as my side. Super tasty fulfilling. In love with the balsamic dressing!

    Had a Denver omelette with fruit and a slice of Gluten free toast and it was great! No reaction. They don't guarantee to it being safe from cross-contamination but they prepare gluten free things in its own dedicated area. Plenty of options too. I'm a Celiac and I'll be going back for a second trip.

    Substantial gluten free menu and knowledgable staff. I have celiac disease and come here frequently and have never had any negative effects. They are very aware of contamination issues and have a separate area for gluten free food preparation. At one point I tried to order French fries and they let me know they are not gluten free due to cross contamination in their fryer, which I consider an indication of a high level of awareness on their part.

    I went here for breakfast on a Sunday (get there early to avoid a wait), and it was amazing. The cinnamon roll pancake was delicious and not too sweet. I got the meat lover's omelet and it was perfect for me- lots of filling, little egg. The gf food is made in a separate space. It's a cute little restaurant that's definitely worth the stop.

    The Trails is exactly what you'd hope a friendly neighborhood eatery would look like: bright, cheery and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (Wednesday to Saturday only). For breakfast, it serves up gluten-free favorites like blueberry banana pancakes and the gluten-free San Diego Omelet, stuffed with jack cheese, bacon and avocado and served with home fries, fruit and gluten-free toast. And don't miss the lunchtime salads and sandwiches served until 3p.m.!

    Awesome food. Best pancakes ever. Everything is separated and 'marked' so there are no errors when food is delivered. Great sandwiches, etc.

    I'm an extremely sensitive Celiac who easily gets sick from very minor cross contamination. I've eaten here at least a dozen times (fabulous food!) and have not once gotten sick. I trust the kitchen & the staff's solid GF training better than I do most anywhere else. Everyone I've brought there has added The Trails to their regular restaurant rotation because the food is so good.

    These folks took gluten free seriously by having a separate menu, getting trained and making great food! I usually have no patience for the long lines at Snooze when i want a great GF breakfast...so the folks here are always my breakfast place of choice!
