    Great food, very GF friendly. Wouldn’t recommend coffee or lattes though, the coffee was too bitter and after two tries with lattes both which had no flavor to them

    We’ve been here as celiacs, my son and I, on numerous occasions thru the years. Every time we visit Boston, it’s our first stop. Delicious GF cookies, delicious coffee, cool atmosphere, super nice serving staff. However, and this kills me to say this, the last time we went, we both got really sick after eating the GF chocolate chip cookies. And both of us eat out often and very rarely ever get sick. I assume there was some cross contamination issue in the baking preparation.

    Super yummy gluten free breakfast sandwich! They also have great lunch options and some pastries. When ordering tell them it's celiac or for an allergy and they will be careful of cross contamination. It's

    Went here for the first time last weekend and it was great. Got a gf breakfast sandwich and it was delicious. Can't remember the last time I was able to pop in somewhere and get a breakfast sandwich and a coffee.

    Stopped here for lunch. It is alittle coffee shop with sandwiches, prepackaged items (fruit cups, sm salads, juices, puddings, etc.) They have GF bread and they said they use a separate toaster for GF sandwiches. They also had GF chocolate chip cookies, GF chocolate torte slice and I think one GF pudding. My daughter had a turkey sandwich with honey mustard. I was alittle nervous as it was really busy and the place is really small (there was no open indoor seating left, so we ate outside). She didn't get sick, so I think it was ok - I would recommend for a quick bite and the cupcake place right next door (Georgetown Cupcakes) has 1 GF cupcake selection per day. So if looking for a coffee or a snack it is ok but not for a big meal.

    I second the Tiramisu being yummy. 👍 5 stars for the tiramisu. The coffee is also good. I haven't had any other offerings.

    Coffee shop in North End part of Boston. They offer both GF and non- GF baked items. Have GF tiramissou, and an unbelievable Vegan/ GF Snickerdoodle made w/ Almond flour. I would consider this a place to go after having dinner in North End, to grab a Cappucino and a sweet after dinner.

    Went here today for the first time... placed my order and let the lady at the counter know that I was a very sensitive celiac so proper handleing is essential. She assured me they were very aware and used all precautions. I walked down the line and watched the young lady making my sandwich. She started by changing her gloves.... then wiped off her counter... next step was heating my bread which she did by wrapping it first in foil before placing it in the press... I was so very impressed that they would take the time to think that far in to the process... I had actually been thinking as I was watching "Oh well, there is the cross contamination potential, and I would probably be eating the filling and leaving the bread even though the bread itself was gluten free" When she wrapped it in foil I wanted to hug her!!! Then the poor girl dropped one slice on the counter when she unwrapped them... she immediatly without any hesitation took that slice and put it in the trash and prepared a new slice! I am so excited to have found this place! I know I will go back there again, and again, and again :D Very, clean, very pleasant, right on top of the allergin issue... I just wish I could give them more than 5 stars!!! Had to come back and edit this review! I indulged and purchased a gluten free pastry, they had a black forest cake today.... little layers of cake with cream filling and cherries.... out of this world!!! Anyone with celiac can attest to how rare good pastries are and a shop that sells really good gluten free bread for your sandwich!

    I am a sensitive celiac. While, I did take a chance, I didn't get sick. I had the gf tiramisu and it was delicious. A lot of chance for cross contamination here but the employees were extremely helpful!

    Did not change gloves before getting out my bread (from a basket with other non-gf bags of bread in it too), and putting it on tin foil to heat it up, or before getting out the bacon to heat it up. After those things were warmed up, they changed gloves to put the sandwich together, but it would have already been contaminated. I didn't dare eat it.

    Very good. I had a BALT on gf bread and thought it was delicious. The bread was perfectly crispy. They also have French macarons which are delicious (but very tiny). Portions could be better, service could be better, and prices were a little high. But overall I would go back.

    I would give the chocolate chip cookie two stars, but overall the place gets one because while they have gf bread, they do not understand celiac at all. I asked the person taking my order to change gloves and wrap the sandwich in aluminum foil and she looked confused. She asked, "why?" That's when I knew not to risk it.

    Gf chocolate chip cookies are so delicious! I also had a grilled cheese on the gf bread and the sandwich maker wrapped my sandwich in tinfoil before grilling. No reaction!
