The first time I went here, the experience and food was great. The second time, I tested the food and it apparently had gluten. Extraordinary pancakes, slightly worrisome service.

I am someone with celiac disease visiting from Maryland. We thought we’d try this iconic spot. I ordered off the gluten free menu and explained my “allergy”. The pancakes were by far the most delicious I’ve eaten since my diagnosis 7 years ago. I couldn’t believe it. Now I know why. One hour later I was in the public restroom at the botanic gardens vomiting on and off for the next 2 hours. Something went wrong with their procedures. I will call the restaurant tomorrow and let them know. I cannot recommend.

Large separate GF menu. They offer GF pancakes and waffles and the standard breakfast items (omelettes, etc.). You can also order GF pancakes on the side and/or specialty (blueberry, bacon pancakes, etc.).

They have large Gluten Free menu. The manager came out today and spoke to us regarding our food. We have visited over 20 times and we have had no issues. It's a safe haven for me and all my family members.

I do like their pancakes but they don't have much other than that. I asked if their hot tea selections are gluten free and they had no idea. This is basically a limited menu so they can say they have GF but nothing spectacular. They server didn't know about GF and the manager wasn't much better. I'd be concerned about cross-contamination since the front line training is so limited. Use caution.

A must! I had a gf plain waffle, eggs, and hash browns with sweet onions. Everything came out with a gluten free allergen stick, the syrup is made in house so is for sure gluten free, and the waffles are made in a separate waffle iron. Everything tasted amazing too. Very knowledgeable staff and a separate gf menu.

Came here as a mix of me (gf) and family (not gf) and they asked if my gluten free waffle was an allergy or a preference and seemed confident when I said it’s an allergy. Really tasty and I don’t feel sick at all
