We enjoyed gluten free Virginia ham and egg sandwich and lox open face sandwich for breakfast. Clearly labeled on the takeout box gluten free meals. Portion was fair. Ham was excellent. Coffee was good (leans fruity in character). I found it easy to order gluten free online.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Portions are abysmal even if it were decently priced they would still be too small. They are inconsistent when it comes to avoid CC and communication about food restrictions can be hit or miss between cashier and kitchen.
I'm also allergic to dairy and was told I couldn't get an egg sandwich for breakfast because they use a scramble mix with milk in it instead of having actual eggs to cook to order. The tuna sandwich I ended up ordering was so small I left there still hungry. Not sure why the place is so popular and often packed full of people.
I have given them many chances but this place is so expensive especially for gluten free. You pay more for gf bagel ok I get that BUT to charge $1 for butter. Crazy Upcharge fir dry gf bread is also a lot. Gf cookies tend to be stale.
My salad came with bread. (Not GF) and was watery. Not impressed with food but coffee and drinks looked good.
The coffee is great and the GF pastries are nice. However, I definitely got very directly glutened (ate a whole sandwich made with regular, gluten-filled, bread) due to the staff's poor communication. I told the person I ordered from I needed GF bread and that it was a severe allergy, but that wasn't communicated to the person who actually made the food. This place seems good but BE CAREFUL.
I eat lunch at this location monthly. I have learned to only go early or late. They can't handle the lunch rush and too much CC occurs during this time. They even accidentally gave me a soup with barley one time, luckily I inspected it carefully before eating. Food is good though and when I really want a sandwich or soup I come here.
Great food (with bread and cookies from AnnaB's Gluten Free!) but I can't call this place celiac friendly because all items are made in a common kitchen and CC is a major problem - I once ordered a box lunch and there was flour all over the box when I went to pick it up (they did remake the sandwich, though).
Food was great however I recommend you make sure to tell them of your gf needs.
Really good grilled cheese! Make SURE YOU order gluten free though!
I spoke to the chef about my choices so I knew exactly what I was getting and it was delicious! I enjoyed scrambled eggs with ham, cheese, and gf bread and fresh butter. The atmosphere was fun and perfect for a Sunday lunch.
I was able to go out and have soup and a sandwich! It was a little expensive, but being celiac, I will pay for the ability to eat out on occasion. Plus, the quality of the food is well worth it! I had the mango and turkey sandwich and the ten veggie soup. The soup smelled so good, even passers by were commenting. (We were sitting in front of the beautiful open doors) the atmosphere is a bit yuppie, but the focus on good food and being green kind of causes that. It would be a great place to grab lunch with family or friends.
So worth the stop during a freak March snow storm. Bagel with cream cheese and lox was delicious. Mocha latte also yummy - not you sweet. biscotti to go. Service very friendly, and prices very reasonable.
Since going GF I've truly missed bagel and lox. Urban Farmhouse has it AND it takes fantastic!
Good food and atmosphere. Nice to be able to have soup and sandwich for lunch.
Great atmosphere at this - part coffee house part wine bar part sandwich shop. Good gf sandwich and sweets options from annaB's.
