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.

I have eaten the plain waffle here several times and have not gotten sick. They have a separate waffle iron for gluten free.

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.).

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
