Açaí bowls are safe to order gluten free, but I wouldn’t eat anything else here. The paninis are made on the same equipment, but they use wax paper. I don’t think that’s safe for a celiac. I would stick to açaí bowls only here.

I am visiting from out of town and have eaten here twice. The first time, I had a great experience and did not get sick. The second time I visited was a different story. They do not have allergy menus explaining which foods may have been safe/unsafe for a celiac to eat.

I asked the staff to advise what might be safe and was informed that while they had been trained on safe practices when an allergy is present, they were not informed about what might contain gluten.

When I asked about the GF paninis and toast, I was told that they used the same equipment on both gluten and gluten free products.

Not having much confidence, I ended up ordering exactly the same thing I had eaten previously and ended up feeling sick.

I am sure that this CAN be a safe place to eat if the staff on duty is knowledgeable. With better training and documentation, this could be a solid place to get a quick and delicious bite to eat!

Everything can be made gluten free. They have Acai bowls, smoothies, salads, panini, wraps, grain bowls. All gluten free! They have gluten free procedures for allergy safety that the employees follow. My daughter is gluten free and we’ve always felt safe eating here

They make the gluten “allergy”bowls in a separate location and take extra precautions to ensure safety. Super nice and understanding. Gluten free granola is a good alternative.

I was so excited try this place. I ordered gluten free- even told them it's an allergy. The food was really good. Unfortunately I woke up today really sick. The staff there must not take the allergy seriously. I'm very disappointed.

I like to go here for fruit smoothies. I have good experience with those. Also they sell little packaged snacks that are gluten free. Haven’t ventured to try the baked potato, salad or other lunch options. It is the place I feel best eating at the City Creek mall
