I AM OBSESSED! We are on the last day of our Colorado vacation, heading back to Wisconsin so we needed to get some breakfast before heading home. I have celiac disease and this place was highly recommended. I had the pancake flight and omg! You would never know that these pancakes were gluten free! So fluffy and flavorful, the staff was fantastic and accommodating, I seriously can’t say enough great things about this place! If you are in Colorado Springs and need some amazing gluten free food, check them out! They have a tone of options!

The food was amazing and 10/10 recommend. The gluten free pancakes are a MUST have (if you have a sweet tooth). Then the cooks change their gloves and clean the stovetop before cooking your meal. And make sure there’s a toothpick on your food, that’s how you know they made it gluten free.

Lots of GF options but do mention if you have celiac. They recommended I stay away from the pancakes and hash browns. The pancakes are made on a shared grill. The hash browns are okay (made on a separate grill) but are in close vicinity to non-GF food. Probably would have been fine but played it safe and got the breakfast tacos instead as recommended. Charlie was our server and super knowledgeable! He made sure the staff knew to take extra precautions for celiac. Definitely will come back!

* new location * I was super nervous to come here as I know there’s gluten present in their kitchen. I told the server I had celiac and just ordered the GF English muffin (delish), a fried egg & OJ. She talked to the cooks who said it’s pretty easy to keep from cross contamination unless it’s one of the “GF” pancakes. So I was sure to avoid those. Thankfully I didn’t get sick & maybe I’ll try more next time!

This place is the bomb, they have any pancakes you want. They are GF friendly and they have the GF on the menu. Makes it easier to order. I hate when I have to ask for a GF menu. it's usually a card, ugh!! I have eaten here and never had a reaction. Great staff as well.

I have not eaten at this location. Based on my experience at the downtown location, I would assume this location is not celiac friendly. It has a nice breakfast menu and is a good option for people without dietary restrictions.

We ate here at about 9:30am on Monday and it was packed! But we had great service. Rachel was our server and seemed very knowledgeable about keeping our Celiac family safe. My main question is whether the GF pancakes are cooked on a dedicated portion of the griddle and they are! Yahoo! Both of our kids got the chocolate chip pancakes (kid sized) and loved them. I had the quinoa in coconut milk and it was about my favorite breakfast I've ever had - now I'm on a mission to recreate it at home. Our server marked our ticket as the requisite "allergy," and told me the cooks would change gloves for our order. All in all I'd highly recommend it!

I had a gluten free muffins classic eggs benedict. The wife had a traditional muffin. The muffin was very good. but we both felt they skimped on hollandaise sauce. Also, the hollandaise lacked tang. We both had poached eggs that were cooked a bit too long, there was hardly any runny part. My plate had less hash browns than hers.

There's a pokestop nearby ;-)

The other reviews lead us to this place, few clarifications. Only the pancakes, eggs and hash browns and English muffin are gluten free and you have to pay more for that option. Gre as the food and service just wish I had known about the price difference and that they didn't have gf bread/rolls ( I was excited for French toast) . I will go back again.

my first experience here was phenomenal. Unfortunately, my last 5 times have been expensive and either bland, or just flat out untasty. I've actually taken to telling my friends I'll eat at home rather than join them here any more.

The staff seems knowledgeable about Celiac and careful. The servers never give me a hard time when I ask questions. I LOVE their gluten free pancakes, though I'm not thrilled about the (admittedly small) charge for gluten free ingredients. I buy the pure maple syrup for extra because I wasn't sure about the gluten free status of their regular syrup--but I like the maple syrup better anyway.

Pretty good food and gf clearly labeled. We got the gourmet pancake flight with a strawberry cheesecake (only ok), blueberry something (a little better than the cheesecake), and Hawaiian which was the best by far. The gf pancake base was one of the better ones I’ve had so I bet the classic buttermilk would be great! We also tried the corned beef hash with a gf English muffin on the side. The corned beef was awesome - the jalapeno bacon jam on top was incredible!!- , hash browns delicious, but the English muffin was… almost inedible. I hate to be that harsh but I’m pretty forgiving of gf breads and this one was just not good. I’d definitely go back to try other menu items!

I’ve gotten takeout from here a couple of times, and the best thing about it is the bacon. I’m not a big bacon fan, but I really like their bacon for some reason. I have only ordered the three egg scramble with spinach and mushroom, it comes with hashbrowns, and once I opted for the gluten-free tortilla and the other time I splurged and got the gluten-free English muffin. There is an up charge of $3.50 for the gluten-free English muffin, PLUS an up charge of $3.00 just for simply marking it as a gluten-free meal. Obviously, that’s pretty annoying. It’s all very good food though, except for the gluten-free tortillas. They come with the meal free of charge, but they are barely edible. I would either opt for the English muffin, which was actually very good, or just nothing at all in that category. Hard pass on the tortillas. The staff seems well-versed in cross-contamination, and the gluten-free meals come with a gluten-free label pick in the food, which always makes me feel reassured that they got the order right and didn’t get mixed up with another meal. I do appreciate that.

I plan to get breakfast here, one more time before leaving town, and overall, I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

After ordering, the server inquired about any allergies. I’d eat her for breakfast everyday if the prices would support that lol.

I always feel sort of bad after I eat here, but I can’t tell if it’s the richness of the super yummy food, or cross contamination. My 9 yr old daughter feels the same way.
