The food is not gluten free in the slightest. They have GF pastries, but they are prepared using the same utensils and equipment as gluten-containing food. Avoid if celiac.

Great! They wiped down everything for me. I got a grilled cheese and flourless chocolate cake. They had a great selection. (Cheese wasn’t melted inside sandwich but still a 5 star from me)

Got a grilled cheese with gluten-free bread. Choice of cheese (I went with cheddar). The bread was pretty dry and the cheese didn't melt well. The gluten-free chocolate chip cookie was average, the chocolate torte wasn't too bad. They can make any sandwich with the gf bread. All around okay, I've been to much worse places.

On a word-of-mouth recommendation I tried a gluten free grilled cheese sandwich. The cheese was not melted, the inside of the sandwich was soggy and inedible, probably from the jarred, cold, "roasted" red peppers. What little bread I ate left a bad after taste. This was a total disappointment. I left hungry.

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.

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.

Breakfast bread can be changed out to GF bread. Several GF baked goods: key lime pie, chocolate chip cookie, snickerdoodle (yummy), and lemon-blueberry iced donut (moist, fresh, and flavorful). They had beet salad (like at other location) and chia seed pudding. I definitely didn't feel like GF was an after thought. They also had free refills of coffee at this location (vs at the one next to Boston Commons that charged 55 cents for refills). Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.

I asked questions about my grilled cheese and they assured me they take precautions to avoid cross contamination. My food took longer to make, so I was reassured that I’d be fine, but ended up VERY sick. It was definitely GF bread, but there must be cross contamination occurring in their kitchen.

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.

The first time I went to the thinking cup I got a gf sandwich and donut and had no issues. The second time, however, I had a REALLY bad reaction to the tiramisu, which I was assured was gluten free and was listed as gf on their menu. Not sure if it was cross contaminated during baking or during serving, or if it just straight up contains gluten, but I might as well have had a slice of white bread, for the reaction I had.

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!

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.

Uses the same toaster to toast regular bread and GF bread. The cashier didn't seem to think that would be an issue. Asked for the bread not toasted, and the guy preparing was preparing all regular sandwiches at the same time as GF.

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.
