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.

First time I have had a waffle since being GF, it was so heavenly to eat a fluffy waffle agin. It was delicious and made in a GF dedicated waffle iron.

I had the blueberry waffle with blueberry compote on the side. Absolutely recommend.

Definitely recommend this place. GF menu was extensive with many options.

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

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.

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

I ordered an omelet. You can get pancakes or toast. You can get gf pancakes, but not gf toast. You can pay an up charge to get fruit. 🙄. It’s really loud. I’m hangry, so maybe disregard my review.

I was really upset with my experience here. I was told they had dedicated waffle iron but that was false information. There was not much I could eat at this establishment except for eggs, which I unfortunately don’t like. It’s hard to be promised something will be safe, but when I arrive I find out they have nothing I wanted. Really disappointed.
