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

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.

Found this place on this app. I was so excited to actually eat breakfast at a restaurant since the last one got me glutened many months ago and had me very nervous to go out. Staff was very Friendly and assured me that new clean pan and ingredients were used. Food was delicious and I did not have an reactions ! Definitely coming back.

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.

August 14th, 2023:

This place is still awesome and we make a point to come here when we are in the area. Uploaded pictures of the 2023 GF menus. (see photos)

—- Menu states they do everything possible to avoid cross contamination which us the best you can expect in a non-dedicated gluten free kitchen. I had no issues as a celiac.

Possibly the best omelette I’ve had in my life. It was excellent. Everything here was delicous and there are a lot of gluten free options.

Great breakfast food

Pancakes were good, but even for a half order (3 pancakes) it was very expensive. With a cup of tea and tip the bill was over $20. Pancakes were ok.
