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. πŸ™„. It’s really loud. I’m hangry, so maybe disregard my review.

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!

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.

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.

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

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
