Everything was very good! They have a great selection of gf meals. I had waffles and did not experience any reaction at all. Excellent service and excellent food-- I will be returning.

Something has changed at Waffles on Maple. When I tried to order today, I requested that they change their gloves, and was told literally “we’re not doing that. If your allergy is that severe, you shouldn’t be eating out at all.” I was also told that while a plain waffle is safe, all of the toppings are cross-contaminated.

Excellent experience. The cashier alerted the kitchen staff about our gluten free order and let us know they use a separate area to make the gf waffles. Food was delish! No issues for my celiac daughter. This was our first stop in the NOLA area after leaving the airport.

I like to start plain and work my way up... a delicious GF waffle with a side of fruit!

Love this place. They have a separate area in the kitchen for gluten free items. They offer delicious GF biscuits, waffles, cookies and king cake.

I love this place more than words can say. Soft chewy GF waffles in the most amazing flavors - strawberry shortcake being my favorite. I’ve eaten here too many times to count and have never gotten sick. They also have GF king cakes during Mardi Gras season!!

I went to the Metarie location. The young lady who took my order acted like I was bothering her. I thought I had heard that they offer GF crepes. I asked her, and, in a rude tone, she told me "it'll be marked on the menu if it's gluten free". I got the waffle sampler. My waffle was undercooked and the toppings were underwhelming. It was ok, not amazing, though. I'm visiting from North Dakota and this place was recommended by the Gluten Free New Orleans Facebook group. #GFFFM #GFTCM
