We were on our way out of town (having been in St George for our anniversary) and my pregnant wife was craving a sandwich. We figured that sandwiches are a quick lunch and we could get on the road quickly. Not here. Took 45 minutes for our sandwiches and lunch to arrive. We thought maybe they would be homeade chips and an exquisite sandwich. Nope. Took them 45 mins to find the prepackaged bags of chips and slap together some bread with a few slices of meat, lettuce, tomato, and hardly any mayo. Glad I had water to wash down the dry sandwich. The meat was flavorful, but that's about the only positive thing about my trip to twenty-five main cafe. Wish I hadn't have had to pay and tip upon ordering or I would have walked out long before and just taken the 10 minute detour to subway. Don't go to this establishment unless you have all day to sit and wait for your mediocre food to arrive (especially since everybody else in the place was staring at the walls waiting for their food too. Doesn't seem to matter what you order, took just as long for the table next to us to get their pizza). And he looked like he didn't want to eat the soggy pizza once it arrived anyways. Biggest disappointment I've had in a business in a long time. At least the decor was nice to look at. And the staff all looked extremely upset that we were there. No smiles, no pleasantries, no welcoming. Just avoid this place. And they don't have gluten free anything except pizza. Thankfully they were nice enough to wrap my wife's sandwich in lettuce for her. We still had to stop for ice cream on our way of town to fill our stomachs from this dainty "meal".
Had a perfect gluten free pizza and herb tea served in a big cup. Yummy. My husband ordered spaghetti and meatballs (regular). It came with only three meatballs, no Parmesan and a small heel of bread with no butter or garlic. Needless to say, he was not impressed.
They seem to be a good place, it smells amazing at least! The cashier said she has celiac and she eats here. They have lots of options but not necessarily satisfying. ie they can sauté veggies to replace pasta but they don’t have gf pasta, they don’t have gf bread or buns and will make a lettuce wrap instead. All of their soups and salads are gf so there are a lot of options for that.
Ordered green pizza with gluten free crust and it was delicious. Also got the strawberry poppyseed salad... lots of fresh strawberries and yummy. They were so accommodating and very careful with my gluten free requests. I have hashimotos and also have to avoid dairy. They made my half of pizza with no cheese and let me know pesto sauce had dairy and made my husbands half with lots of cheese so it was a win win and I was glad they were so accommodating. When I asked they said They can make Panninis with lettuce wrap and can make all salads gluten free as well. One of workers said she has celiacs so I'm guessing they are careful with cross contamination.
Seriously amazing place! I've eaten there several times and am a severely sensitive Celiac. Not once have I had a reaction and their cupcakes are indistinguishable from a glutinous one. I asked how they are so good at not contaminating things and they explained the owner's family has Celiacs and gluten sensitivity so they are very careful with how things are done. I'm completely sold on this restaurant and will continue to eat here.
