    My partner and I tried their white and regular cheese pizza, they were delicious. I love the fact that the crust isn't flat like most gf pizzas, it was thicker and fluffy.

    The best GF coffee cake I have ever had. I've also had their pizza, muffins, salads and all were delicious as well. The staff is very friendly and the seating Area is cozy and often features work by local artists.

    My son has Celiac disease and we were so happy to find a safe place for him to eat. The food is delicious and the owners are super friendly. His favorites are the sandwiches,pies and cookies.

    I found his little gem today, and am glad I did! I found out they make everything themselves, and they do it right. I had a meatball sandwich, my daughter had the pizza sandwich, and a chocolate chip cookie. The food was excellent, and didn't taste like typical gluten free food. It was much better. This is one place I think I'll make regular visits to. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

    I don't live in NJ, but was actually born in Kearny. My husband and I were visiting relatives in North Arlington in August and made plans to eat at VaMoose and to buy some baked goods too. What a wonderful dining experience we had. My husband and I both had pizza, but I opted for the white pizza. Fanatic doesn't even begin to describe the food. And you can't beat the personal attention we received from the owners. They were more than happy to answer all the questions I threw at them even how they came up with their logo. Their blueberry muffins and chocolate chip muffins are to die for, and still warm fresh-out-of-the-oven cinnamon coffee cake was so delicious. The next time we are in the area, we are definitely going back. If you live in the area and haven't tried this place yet, do yourself a favor and stop in. You will not regret it.

    If I could give this business more stars I would! I am THRILLED to live so close to this café. Let me start off by saying the owners ( Elena and her daughter Marina) are warm, friendly and truly knowledgeable about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance/Sensitivity. Their passion for gluten free cooking/baking is evident. I love meeting people that share the same enthusiasm about high quality whole clean foods. Our server was Jay and he was very attentive and friendly. The café has a cozy feel to it as if you are eating at friend's house :) I enjoyed the spinach omelet with organic eggs and turkey bacon. My side toast of bread was delicious. My mother does not have a gluten intolerance like I do and she enjoyed her blueberry muffin ( so delicious) as well as her egg and bacon Panini sandwich. I love everything about this place.... no artificial sweeteners, no artificial preservatives, all Gluten free menu items, Glass bottled mineral water NOT plastic, non GMO, etc.. These things are very important to me. I most definitely will return to try out the lunch menu very soon... the Cuban Panini sandwich and pizza caught my eye.... I took home the crumb cake, a cupcake and a coconut and chocolate pecan cookie for my family and EVERYONE loved the baked goods. This place is VERY WORTH the drive for those that are not local..... come support them! Thank you for all the helpful information Marina!

    I am so delighted to have VaMoose right in my town. I stopped in to try a dessert and was not disappointed with the chocolate chip muffin. First, it was delicious. Second and very important , it did not taste different than a gluten-full muffin. Third, another bonus, the muffin did not fall apart as I ate it, as many gluten free baked goods do. I will definitely be returning regularly to try all of the menu items. The owners were so friendly and well informed. It also helps that we were told that they did not sell anything that did not taste like the "real thing". I have to say that VaMoose IS the real thing.

    I'd recommend this adorable cafe to not only those of us who eat gluten free, but anyone who's looking for an extraordinary well made and planned snack or meal. I made a great decision stopping here while traveling yesterday. The delicious food was made by Vamoose's thoughtful and knowledgable owners. Not only was it extremely tasty, but the bread stayed together and I can't say that for all places!!! Thanks Vamoose!

    This small shop is definitely "mom and pop" in the best sense - family-owned and served, they definitely care about their product and their customers. Great gluten-free savory food - we had meatball parm and a Cuban sandwich. Definitely yummy. The organic ice cream for dessert was a great addition, too.

    Safe, delicious healthy gluten free food, a celiac's dream. The staff treats you like family. Please support this business. There should be more places like this all over the states. If you're feeling deprived from your favorites after eating here you will no longer feel that way!

    The atmosphere is great, and everyone is super friendly and attentive. I got my breakfast sandwich to go and when the cook brought it out she said "it's not the quickest (only took 5 mins, max) but I guarantee is the best sandwich you'll ever have!" and she was right!! I also got a crumble cake muffin and coffee, which both were great (I rarely regard coffee as great, but if I lived closer I would go there every morning just for it!!). You need to stop in here for breakfast, and you could even bring a gluten-eating friend bc the food is so good they'll never notice the difference!!

    This is a MUST for GF eats! This adorable family run eatery is 100% GF & organic. The owner is Gluten Intolerant and is dedicated to the everyday person having the opportunity to eat healthy. Prices are affordable and the food is delicious! We had 2 panini tuna melts, which came with chips. The bread was crispy & delicious. Then we had a chocolate chip cookie which was perfect and left with 4 other freshly baked 100% GF & organic baked goods. We will be back forsure!!!

    First time visit this past Tuesday and I will be a return customer for sure. I have a grandson with peanut allergies. VaMoose is a safe place to purchase an ice cream cake for birthday celebrations. I am confident VaMoose Café will do well aside from the gluten free products, the atmosphere is charming with the display of art work from local artists. Best of Luck!
