    Went for lunch based on the reviews here. I have to say we must have gone to different restaurants. We do not do organic, but GF is a necessity. The prices are high for what we got. No sides, 2 drinks for 5 people and 1 bowl of soup, 1 pizzetta, 2 pressed sandwiches, and tortilla chips sprinkled with some cheese (kids menu). My press with "chicken breast" appeared to have 1 slice of chicken deli meat. The soup had a nice flavor, but the rest could have been passed over. We left and drove to our condo for a snack immediately. I won't return and definitely have some buyers regret with what we got and what we paid.

    This has been the best meal I've had during my trip. Australians will love the simple, fresh foods. Great because it is not the overly sweetened food you get everywhere else. Had the white smoothie and the chicken Roma press. Awesome gluten free food.

    Lots of gluten free, dairy free and vegan items. Excellent food. GF grilled cheese is amazing. Soups are fantastic. Beach pops are a great finish to your meal. They take extra precaution to ensure no cross contamination.

    Amazing lunch place! Everything except a few breads are gf and they keep the gluten separated. Designated gf prep area. Great soup, salads, sandwiches, pizzas for lunch + green smoothies and ice cream for snacks.

    Good stuff! Cross contamination chances are very low - as they only offer 3 things that have gluten (flour tortillas, what tortillas & Ezekiel bread) and they treat those as allergens & keep them away from the prep space.

    I travel all over the country for work and this is one of the best places I've been to. So many gluten free options for wraps and sandwiches. They also make sure their daily soup is made gluten free every day.

    This is the place to go if you are too nervous to eat out. They know their stuff and have gone the extra mile to ensure no cross contamination happens. The gentleman behind the counter explained everything perfectly. You will be in awe at all the precautions they take!

    We're vacationing in this area. Two of five in our group have celiac disease. They had so many choices and we're very knowledgeable . I had a wrap which was obviously fresh and totally yummy! We tried their mint cookie, brownie and scone. I'm not a big coconut fan so I didn't care for the mint cookie. Three people got the frozen banana brownie sundae- very good! So many choices- worth stopping by if you're in the area

    Great sandwich shop that is very close to the beach. Lots of gluten free options, actually most everything can be made with gf bread or wrap. The gf focaccia flat bread makes a great sandwich, with a New Grist beer. Only downside is that it is expensive for sandwiches, about $15 per person with drinks, but worth it for an easy Gf meal! My non gf family loved it, too.

    The pops were terrific - tasty, cold, not too sweet, lots of flavors to choose from - the wrap, not so much. The tortilla was cold and brittle so it broke up into increasingly smaller pieces as you handled it, making it really messy to eat. That might have been easy to overlook had it tasted really good, but the sun-dried tomatoes tasted off. The avocado and the fact it was gluten free were the only things that saved it.

    What a fantastic surprise! My GF travel companion and I saw the sign for Wild Roots and noticed they offered organic foods. This normally has a chance for GF items, so we found them on Facebook and saw they mentioned gluten-free. We took a risk right before leaving our "weekend get-away" in the Pensacola Beach and tried them out, after talking with the head chef. She couldn't have been more accommodating. Everything they make is essentially gluten-free. The items that are not GF are pre-packaged things like wheat wraps, which are stored separately from the GF foods. She addressed their policy on avoiding cross contamination before I even asked....GOTTA LOVE THAT! She also revealed that she is one week into eating a stric gluten free diet herself for health purposes. We ate the soup of the day, which was a mushroom and cream of cashew. We also split a GF wrap called the Floridian with veganaisse and guacamole, and a GF flatbread, which was just their toasted version on thr wrapped, served open-faced. She explained that they toast the GF items on grill to the left and "regular" breaded items on the right. She also explained that they have color-coded knifes when cutting the breads, so as not to risk any gluten relatef issues. The fact that this place is across from the Hilton and Hampton Inn makes this small cafe a win for GF beach-goers! In the same building is their smoothie bar called Beach Pops, which has tons of GF options when wanting a cool, refreshing sweet drink at the beach. In May 2013, they will also be expanding to offer grocery items and dinner. They are currently open from 9am till 5pm. Enjoy!
