Location at Town Center Mall area. Lovely outdoor patio area & spacious well-spaced inside seating plus a bar. Server introduced the concept as made from scratch & good for allergies/ dietary restrictions, especially gluten & dairy. Chicken sausage Lasagna was already Gf. Pizza crust & GF burger bun both seemed to be Udi’s & were not scratch made. GF DF items marked on menu, including all desserts. We tried the flourless chocolate cake & GF DF squash pie which were very good. I think the menu seemed to be marked as GF DF if it was available, not that it necessarily already was... and yet on the QR scanned menu, pizza wasn’t offered as GF or DF. Server informed us both were available. I would be more clear next time about allergies, as my son thinks the ice cream with the dessert was not actually DF and he paid for it later (although it could’ve been the cheese on the pizza he elected to not swap for vegan, but cheese doesn’t usually affect him so badly).

Delicious food! Waitress took my gluten free preferences seriously , and i had plenty of gluten free options to choose from that were clearly labeled on the menu. I had the spaghetti squash casserole with chicken, plus cookies and ice cream. So good!

We’ve eaten here many times. My wife is very allergic to gluten and a variety of other things, resulting in migraines and stomach pain if she’s exposed. True Food and Epik Burger are the only two places she’s NEVER had an allergic reaction. That level of consistency is rare in the restaurant industry! And the food tastes great!

This is my absolute favorite restaurant I’ve ever been to! Having celiac can make it tough to find a restaurant that prevents cross contamination as well as having delicious, healthy food but true food kitchen had both! Very safe for celiacs.

Great food & they are extremely allergy friendly. I’m gluten, dairy, soy, & egg free & they can change any dish to meet your needs. I’m Celiac & it’s so hard to find a safe place to eat.

Lots of gluten free options in the regular menu, even several gluten free desserts with coconut milk ice cream. Would recommend for celiacs and would definitely eat here again.

When we walked in I could immediately tell the would be understanding of my dairy and gluten allergy and felt safe even though the menu says gluten “friendly” not free. The menu had lots of options, some of which I don’t get to experience when going out. I expect there to be a gluten free bun or taco shell but not an entire dessert menu! The bartender who served started to list the 3 options and I stopped him to say- you only have to tell me which are gluten and dairy free. To my surprise he said ALL! He was knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients and informed the kitchen of my allergies. All the food was very delicious! My husband keeps talking about how much he enjoyed it, especially the flourless warm chocolate cake. The whole restaurant including the bathrooms was immaculately clean. The customer service was wonderful from everyone even the runners bringing plates over. Of all the restaurants in this downtown area we tried, this was my favorite!

10/10 would recommend! Josh was so nice and informative on our first visit here! I’m gluten sensitive and the menu had a little “gf” next to everything gluten free. We had the charred cauliflower (delicious!) the squash casserole (yum cheese!) and the flourless chocolate cake (YES 100x!) No flare ups and will definitely be back!
