We visited for location and based on previous reviews hoping to get gluten free pancakes/waffle. However, I would not recommend for celiacs unless you want to eat flavorless eggs and cold potatoes.

They have gluten free pancake and waffle batter, but it is cooked in the same place regular batter is, and from what I could tell, with no effort to clean and prevent cross-contamination.

I felt ok ordering eggs and potatoes, as they are cooked on another area, but the eggs had no flavor and the potatoes were cold and had little flavor. I didn’t get sick, but that is the best I can say.

Nice variety of choices with knowledgeable staff. I had a gluten free Philly cheesesteak. it was delicious but on a (Udi's?) gluten free bun. Also, has gluten free penne and gluten free pancakes and waffles.
