I order from here almost weekly. The gyro and pita is delish, and the fried chicken sandwich is a dream. Bagels are excellent as well.

This place is awesome. Had some breakfast items and baked goods and they were all delicious. Shout out to the chocolate chip cookie in particular.

My favorite restaurant in Chicago. Everything is gf and the food is delicious. My favorites are the prosciutto brie panini and the fried chicken sandwich.

It's just such a delight to be able to go someplace and feel so completely confident that what you get will be safe! Lovely staff and tasty food. I live quite close to this place, so I've eaten here many times. The popovers with honey butter are my favorite thing on the menu. Just delicious! Wonderful sourdough too. Love the spicy potatoes too!

I've gotten the spicy chicken several times, both as a sandwich and on its own. Don't get me wrong-- it's tasty! The seasoning is delicious! But I've always felt a bit let down by the texture. The meat itself is just fine, but the breading isn't as crispy/crunchy as one might hope, especially for that price.

So thankful for dedicated GF spots like this. Stayed in the downtown loop for a couple days and basically starved until I found this place! I had the chicken gyro and spicy potatoes..so delicious! I would absolutely go back for all of my meals, but their hours aren’t ideal for our schedule.

Fabulous place. Completely gluten free kitchen safe from cross contamination. I have celiac and am highly sensitive to cross contamination. I had the beef gyro, everything bagel, and pumpkin spice donut. Everything was delicious and no issues whatsoever. My only regret is that I couldn’t go back before my visit to Chicago ended. Highly recommended.

Found this while visiting Chicago. I have 3 celiac kids and I also eat gluten-free. Very safe! Very good food and desserts!! We ordered grilled cheese and tomato soup, spicy chicken sandwich with fries, pancakes, chicken gyro with fries for lunch. And for dessert chocolate chip cookies, coconuts donut, cinnamon roll and a brownie. It was so nice to be able to order without worry, and all the food was great!!

I love this place!! Their spicy potatoes are to die for. Their gyro is also probably as close to a non-gluten gyro as you can get! My only complaint is that I wish they were open for more hours in the day.

It’s absolutely delightful to eat without worrying. We went with my 5, 4 and 2 year old. Chicken and waffles, pancakes, skillet and pop over were amazing. Wait staff was sweet. Some downers though- my daughter wanted a biscuit breakfast sandwich -One fried egg, one slice of cheese, one piece of ham. $13 later they brought her a ridiculously large breakfast sandwich for a 5 year old. I can see why it was so expensive. It didn’t have a fried egg, three huge pieces of ham. Sorry they don’t have kids sized items. Moreover my daughter didn’t want the flat scrambled egg patty but to be fair I didn’t say anything at that point. It seemed really difficult to request an egg sandwich. Also, the syrup was served to us really cold like straight from the fridge. Overall, still a delight but be careful and go simple for kids. They can’t accommodate for them easily.

Unbelievable! Menu has extraordinary things that you wouldn't find anywhere else. I had the holiday Panini which was Turkey, cranberry sauce, cheese, a great flat bread and it was just wonderful. There is no gluten in the entire restaurant and yet they offer scones, donuts, biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, French Toast and the list goes on. Service is impeccable! The next time I'm in Chicago I will for sure visit this darling cafe. Great lattes too!

Very yummy! Great service and extremely accommodating for other sensitivities and allergies. They had dairy free hollandaise sauce and subbed a bagel in place of English muffin (which contain flax flour). Even with the substitutions, the food was delicious. My husband’s chicken and waffles was some of the best he has ever had. Great balance with the level of spice and the sweet syrup.

I was visiting a friend from out of town, I saw this place on the app. This place in wonderful! The chef has Celiacs and really gets it. It being 100% gluten is of course a bonus, but the food is REALLY delicious. I travel for a living and I can say this is one of the best gluten free places I’ve been to! And I love their table signs that ask people to be kind and keep gluten products out of the restaurant to ensure everything stays 100% gluten free.
