I have celiac and I watched The employees ladling up soup to go and handling bread. They did not wash their hands in between and they did not wear gloves. There were several boxes of gloves but nobody was bothering to wear them. The same girl that was handling all of the bread for the sandwiches was also ladling out my soup, holding each soup container near the rim with bare, gluten covered hands. As I was picking up my order which I had just watched them prepare, basically $70 worth of soup to go I asked the young man if they were certain there would be no cross-contamination because I saw people handling bread and ladling out soup and he became very defensive and argumentative and stated they always did their business this way and they never had any complaints. I pointed out to him that I saw somebody handling the bread and then holding my soup cups. He stated that they wash their hands all of the time and they had never had an issue. I let him know that I watched the girl handle the bread and then ladle up my soup. He said we take extra precautions when people have celiac”allergies”. I asked him how he knew that I was celiac since the gentleman I ordered from never told them that I was, I could watch everything happening their kitchen area is open. It is a small place.

I probably should’ve asked for my money back, left the soup and left.

Now I’m sitting in my car writing this with $70 worth of soup that nobody can eat and I can’t take in my house. For me this is not worth taking a chance on. Soup is going in the dumpster.

So many gluten free options! Yummy gluten free bread and almost all the soaps were gluten free! It’s also really cool because they allow you to sample the soups!

I go here all the time, all of their soups are amazing! They are clearly marked gluten free on the board and they also have gluten free bread! I’ve also never gotten sick here. Also a great place to go if you have a limited amount of time.

My absolute favorite restaurant. The atmosphere is more like a deli counter than a restaurant and the place can get crowded at busy times, but the food is worth it. Get your food to go if it's too busy. Anyway, they have different soups all the time. You can sample them before you decide. There are always several gluten free choices, as well as dairy free, vegan, vegetarian, etc. the sandwiches are all really good too.

This place is amazing if you're gluten-free and accustomed to only having a couple boring options on a menu. Lately when I go, every soup is gluten-free. I have never had a reaction from their food. They offer a GF bread, but I haven't tried it. There are also salads that can be GF. But if you eat here, have the SOUP! They have an exciting batch of 10 or 12 soups that changes daily.
