Excellent service, knowledgeable staff. Separate cooking areas. Waffles tasted a bit like corn bread tho. Will be back.

Was there two times in three days. Autistic son had gf waffles one time and gf pancakes the next -plenty of pancakes had leftovers and he actually ate the leftovers later that night or weekend. Going back for the third time tomorrow morning! He's brought them up several days in between our visits and can't wait to go back again!

Go there all the time! Great gluten free pancakes and waffles. Staff is aware and cautious by placing a stick that says gluten free in the food before serving it.

Absolutely delicious GF pancakes, and you get a huge serving--I usually set aside half the order to take home and freeze to eat later. I've also ordered eggs and hashbrowns, which are also very good.

The gluten-free pancakes were super delicious! Some of the prices are a bit high, but the pancakes were worth every penny.

This place is always amazingly understanding and takes great care to make the food safe. My pancakes are always served with a gluten free marker on them to ensure they’re even handled safely by staff. Definitely recommend.

Unfortunately, the pancakes and waffles are not dairy-free as well. They are made with buttermilk. The gluten free menu is extensive with hash browns, different meats, omelettes, and pancakes/waffles. I did not have a reaction here and they even put gluten-free signage on my plate (toothpicks with the word gluten-free on them). The menu says that the waffle are made in a dedicated gluten-free waffle iron. The food was tasty, but expensive.

My son, 17, loves eating here with friends. He can have pancakes, hash browns, etc. without any worries. He can eat like a king. He is a very sensitive Celiac and has never had an issue. They do a great job!

Dedicated gluten-free section of the kitchen. Gluten free pancakes are clearly marked as such (with a little wooden market) when they come out of the kitchen.

They had a separate gf menu with tons of options, and some of the best gf pancakes I've ever had! Only complaint is that the service wasn't exceptionally fast or friendly.

Very tasty GF pancakes, although a little flat and dense (would benefit from more alkaline/buttermilk to make them fluffier). Obviously the omelettes are a great hearty option.

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.

They can make most of their pancakes gf and they clean off the prep area before making your food. The owner's wife started a gf diet and they are very thorough. Great for those of us who also can't eat eggs :)

The Gluten free pancakes taste very good. Be sure to ask for them to clean the griddle because they are cooked in the was location as the other pancakes.
