    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.

    Picked up GF tiramisu and neopolitan to go. Tasty desserts and no celiac issues (there were non GF items in the case on lower shelves).

    They use the same toaster for their gluten free foods. We left without eating anything.

    It took longer to make my food because of the gluten issue- a good sign in my book. Sandwich was good and tested negative for gluten on my Nima.

    I asked them about their cross contamination practices for grilled cheese. The sandwiches are prepared and cooked on the same surfaces. We didn't even stay

    You can eat every sandwich glutenfree. They also have glutenfree cake and many more sweets.

    Love the sandwiches here. They use gf bread and always ask if it’s an allergy or a preference. I have been there several times and have never had a problem.

    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.

    Nice coffee shop with good dessert and sandwich options for GF diners. We had the cocoa pebbles donuts for breakfast as I didn’t see any other gf breakfast options, but the sandwiches looked delicious. Didn’t have any negative gluten issues in my experience.

    Great gf options! Any sandwich on gf bread, various gf baked goods depending on the day! Chocolate chip cookie isn't bad, blueberry donut is great! Staff verifies if it is an allergy or preference to ensure safety!

    Yummy choc chip cookies and delicious grilled cheese and ham sandwich - read someone else's review and had to have too. Wish we'd found earlier in our Boston stay

    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.

    Absolutely delicious!!! Gluten free white bread that you could probably do with any sandwich. Got a gluten free grilled cheese with white cheddar and maple honey ham... SO GOOD! Go if you can. Not an everyday thing because it's a little expensive but definitely will be coming back soon.

    The sandwich was good but the mushrooms were ruberry. They offer gluten free cookies and macaroons.

    Went here for 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch when we were in Boston recently. They were knowledgable of Celiacs and my daughter had no issues. They can do breakfast sandwiches and regular sandwiches on gf bread. She really enjoyed all the food she got there so I'm sure I'll be swinging in again the next time we are in town.

    Sandwiches are great. Gfree chocolate chip cookies, not so much -- crumbly.

    Always good to find somewhere I can have GF bread and almond milk. They had 3 other GF pastries I didn't try (I'm not a big chocolate fan and I read their cookies weren't great). The bread was very Udi's-like but I'm willing to have mediocre bread just to have bread. All in all, a nice breakfast.

    The gluten free bread was the yucky Wonder Bread type. Bread was soggy, lettuce was bad.

    Enjoyed a GF breakfast sandwich and latte, and had no problems finding a place to sit on a Sunday morning.

    Sandwiches are delicious!! You can get any sandwich on gluten free bread. Their GF cookies aren't very good, but everything else is fantastic.
