Although the reviews said hash browns were safe I was told they are not. My waitress asked what celiac was. Which was not reassuring. They were very kind and asked questions to make sure I was safe. The waitress did tell me that the cooks get annoyed sometimes about dietary restricts. So that would be why this time hash browns weren’t safe. So I guess it depends on the mood they are in to decide how safe you will be and what you can get.

Awesome! Lots of choices can be made GF—GF bread and buns available—and good ones, too! Hash browns cooked in a skillet separate—not on the grill with everything else, just expect it to take a while longer. GF items clearly marked on menu, waitstaff really helpful about adjusting and marking sure you keep it safe. To go orders well packaged & marked. Owner’s Sis is celiac so level of understanding is high.

Very very good awareness of GF celiacs. Caught some cross contamination regardless.. very hard to post a more negative review given how much knowledge the Server and Host staff had. Obviously cross contamination at a diner is extremely likely given the ingredients, but based on reviews gave it a shot. Sadly won’t be back, but experience was good, food was good, knowledge was good.. result wasn’t. Confidently safe for GF, celiacs use caution.

The good and the bad.....just be careful and ask for manager.

My daughter has celiac disease. We went to Winona's based on the many reviews that said it was safe. We went at lunch and ordered a choose your own sandwich with meat and cheese. We were told by a young server that the sandwich would be made in the back away from other stuff....yay! When we asked if mayo and mustard were in squeeze bottles so no cross contamination with spreading on regular bread, we were told no....boo. So we ordered a side of ranch dressing that she could spread on her GF bread with her sandwich. We asked what we could substitute for french fries (common fryer) and were told that the sweet potato fries were cooked separately so we ordered those. When we got her plate, there were a couple regular fries in with the sweet potato fries and my daughter asked about it. Another server (seemed like a manager) overheard and said those are all cooked in the same fryer. The young waitress said "I thought the sweet potato fries were okay" The older server said "No! Only home fries could be cooked in a pan. All french fries are cross contaminated." She then explained things clearly to the young server and the kitchen. She had them re-make it and she comped our meal.....yay. Good way to acknowledge and handle the situation. And I could hear her hammer home to other employees the severity and difference between gluten free and Celiac.

But if my daughter hadn't caught the mishap before eating, we would have been in for a long night of throwing up. So you just need to make sure you are asking for a server or manager who truly knows what they are talking about.

They had gf bread and pancakes, and their hollandaise sauce is gluten free too. I tried the corned beef eggs benedict with toast and fruit. My son (celiac) had their pancakes which tasted pretty good. None of their baked goods are gluten free.

They had gluten free options however, the pancakes were still doughy in the middle. My husbands said his scrambled eggs were dry and the sausage was powdery. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Great GF French toast! They have a lot of GF options - omelets, scrambles, pancakes, GF Udi's toast. They asked if my son was allergic or Celiac. When they learned he was Celiac, they told us they used separate pans, etc. The rest of the family (non-GF) had incredible cinnamon rolls, choc croissants, pancakes, etc. Everything was excellent!
