Everything can be made GF except the bagels. No reaction to the yummy French toast. Great coffee. Good social distancing protocol and outdoor seating was well distanced.

Staff very friendly. Cute, quaint restaurant. Limited parking. Food fresh. Had Gf waffle and daughter had Gf French toast both delicious. Very aware of Gf needs. Not sure if there is a dedicated prep space. Tiny open kitchen.

Staff was knowledgeable and patient. They made all of my food in separate pans. They also had pastries that they assured me were baked separately from the others.

Tasteful, small portions for the price but understandable for what it is: real estate by the ocean in Santa Cruz. Still a lovely quaint spot accommodating to gluten free allergies with outside seating and cafe style self service with some table service when they bring the food out. Small place and always short staffed so don’t down vote it over long wait times and service, they’re not built to be very busy with orders. Overall very good, not confirming celiac safe yet tho in my voting

The owner is careful about celiac and various allergies as well. Her house-made gluten free bread is delicious. I loved the salmon and goat cheese sandwich. Going back tomorrow to try more.

We very much enjoyed our breakfast and did not get sick. They were very knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination. I’d definitely eat there again!

What a find! This place is quaint and the food is amazing! The chef came out and picked the herbs fresh from the patio! The house-made gluten-free bread is full of nutritious seeds.

Had an amazing breakfast and when I asked about gluten free and said I had celiac the counter person said “don’t worry we will wash the pan before we cook your eggs” and told me no gluten has ever touched their waffle iron. Plus it was all delicious!

I really wanted to love this place... gave stars for the great vibes, service, decor, excellent Wild Women organic decaf latte, fruit smoothie, and delish bacon. AND we were so excited to find a cafe with GF waffles...but we were sadly disappointed. Their waffles and baked goods...oat bar, blueberry muffin, and coconut pineapple muffin...ALL had no flavor and were heavy in corn. Basically bland cornbread with some berries, chocolate, and coconut shavings thrown in. GF doesn't mean flavor-free. The waffle was heavy and soft because of the corn...no amount of butter and honey fixed it. I don't mind paying extra for GF but it should taste amazing. It's completely possible. We may be back for their coffee and bacon.

This place nails it! Huge selection of GF muffins/pastries (actually they had more GF options than they did non-GF) as well as waffles, French toast and specialty frittatas. I felt very safe eating here and it made me so happy to have such a great option while visiting from out of town. Not too hippy-dippy either so the hubby could enjoy normal food too.

Excellent place that felt like home. The gluten-free vegan waffles were delicious. My whole family has celiac and we all ate there very safely. I will definitely be coming back to this place. Oh and the gluten-free brownies and muffins were delicious.

They really care! They are more than accommodating! I told them I have celiacs and Crohn's disease. They made sure to use clean pans and the food was great! The guy at the counter was super friendly and said it was his loves/partners birthday. She was in the kitchen making my meal. I felt the love in my Asian Stir fry with wild Salmon. I will go back to this place every time I am in town!

We were excited to try the gluten free french toast. It was very disappointing. Not good, flat and very little flavor. The syrup was good and so was the coffee. I was taken aback because they charged for a coffee refill. It wasn't much, a dollar, but still, really? My husband got a brownie which was gf and very good according to him. Not enough reason to go back.
