    Decent breakfast/lunch joint. Expect cross-contamination. They have gluten free bread (I think Udi's), so that's a plus. They can use it to make french toast but since it's just typical sandwich bread it's not very satisfying. Good, but doesn't hit the spot for me. The omelettes are huge and they use the scrambled eggs/ladle so you end up with a lot of egg on your plate. First time I went (2015) I feel like they were better than they are now (most recent visit was last week). Coffee and tea is great, though. I love the brand of tea they get (MEM tea) and they do have soy milk.

    The management seems to be taking a HUGE (and purposeful) step away from being celiac friendly, while GF bread is still available, all menus now state that cross contamination is likely and restaurant not recommended for those with "allergies" - this is sad as fairly recently they were aware and trying to accommodate, at this time would NOT recommend

    This place has few options for Celiacs, due to cross-contamination, which has been disappointing.

    Got sick here due to cross contamination they use the same grill surface and toaster to prepare gluten free food. Would not recommend to any celiac

    My wife has a severe gluten allergy but fortunately we found uncommon grounds. The meal was delicious service was great. We will be stopping by again the next time we are in the area.

    We go frequently for breakfast and I've never gotten sick here before. If you tell them about your allergy they will cook your breakfast potatoes separately.

    To my knowledge there is no separate space to cook GF items. They use the same toaster for all toast and bagels. Pancakes cooked on same griddle. My husband likes to go for breakfast but I usually just get coffee. Great for those who don't need to worry about cross contamination but, be careful if you have celiac disease.

    Delicious gf breakfast options like pancakes, French toast, and my favorite crunchy French toast with a a coating of gf granola. Also, the berry stuffed ft is great., I've tried them all and al lare Grat. Very accommodating atmosphere for gf. Have gf sliced bread for toast and paninis. Very reasonable prices too.
