Got sick. Pancake was delicious but not worth ruining a couple of days vacation over.

I only ate a side of fruit but I saw that they had gluten free pancakes and options to make other things gluten free. I’m not sure how it is but the option is there. My family thought the food was okay and the service wasn’t great.

The GF Pancakes are the best in San Diego (so far)! Huge, fluffy hot cakes are a must have. Short stack is 2 & enough to feed you for two meals. 3 stacks is enough to share with a friend! Worth the trip!
I enjoy eating here occasionally.
It is Pricey. That being said. It is a favorite of mine.
Love a gluten free pancake along side a GF omelette. I have not had reactions from here. I always order the same thing. Delicious. Very limited selection for GF. I am GF/DF.
Great place for brunch or breakfast with a staff very knowledgeable and ready to help with any gluten related questions! My server was very cautious to ask me about everything before putting it on my plate even double checking that the whipped cream they used was gf! I got the gluten free cinnamon pancakes and they were fantastic!
We came here based off the reviews. My daughter had the GF pancakes and a scrambled egg. She liked them and didn’t get sick. (She is celiac and highly sensitive.). But once they brought us the pancake I asked for GF syrup. They looked puzzled. What’s the point of GF pancakes if you don’t have syrup? Our server brought us a little cup of honey but my daughter wasn’t down with that. Then she brought us a brand new bottle of Smuckers sugar free syrup to try. I looked it up online and found it was GF. My daughter liked it. The waitress really cared about our GF sensitivity and brought us a free bowl of fruit from the owner. We had a good experience and didn’t get sick.
Pancakes were good but NOT WORTH GETTING SICK within an hour of eating I was running for the bathroom :( I informed my server of my allergy and I still got sick... Do not eat here if you have celiac.
Don’t even bother with this place! Half way through breakfast (gf pancakes) I had to ask for the check because of stomach pains. I honestly wasn’t thinking when I ordered my food as to whether or not the food was prepared on the same equipment. It is. The staff advised me all food gf is prepared on the same equipment as everything else...
We tried this restaurant after reading positive reviews. My celiac daughter had the GF pancakes. When ordering we explained about my daughters “allergy”. The waitress informed us about their kitchen procedures (separate pan, cook is careful). The GF pancakes were delicious and no cross contamination occurred.
I have had the gluten-free pancakes three different times with great results. I tell the waitress that I am celiac and they make sure to tell the kitchen staff to use clean pans to not cross contaminate. They write something on the order about taking extra allergy precautions.The staff is always nice and the pancakes are delicious.
There is not a gluten free menu but if you ask to speak with a manager they will tell you the gluten free options. They really accommodate by making substitutions easily. I had The Mom Omelette, a Mexican style omelette with tons of veggies inside and topped with almost an entire avocado! It was delicious! The manager told me my food would be cooked in a separate pan before I even had to ask. I have celiacs and I did not get sick at all at this restaurant. Also, I came planning to wait for a while since the restaurant was packed but they had me seated and eating in no time! I waited a while for my check but I was camped out with my books studying so I was glad they weren’t rushing to get me out. Would definitely recommend and come back 👍🏼
The GF pancakes, eggs and bacon were great, the hostess was knowledgeable about Celiac, and the chef ensured my breakfast was safe and enjoyable. I will be back, and I definitely recommend this place to anyone with a GF lifestyle.
Like a dream come true. Massive breakfast gluten free menu. I had the belgian waffles with hash browns. All gluten free made in their separate equipment. The non-gluten free members were just as happy with their choices. All of us left completely full.
This place use to be great but they have changed to a different bread (Udi's)and possibly a different flour to make pancakes. Last two times we were there, we got major sick. Won't be back unless they go back to what they were using.
Nice staff. Seemed gluten-aware. My daughter was able to get a gluten-free version of the kids pancakes (mickey mouse shape!) and she thought they were great! Adults enjoyed their not necessarily GF meals, too.
Not impressed. Pancakes/waffles, bread and English muffin are the GF choices, besides all other natural GF breakfast foods. Service, well table that got sat after us apparently their order was taken before ours and they had eaten and left before ours ever came, same waitress! Decided to give them another try bad mistake different waitress same horrible service. Yet she was aware of a few more gluten free items available. If cross contamination is a issue this place definitely is not for you!
Make sure your server knows what gluten free means, I have been glutened here everytime I went! Had different servers each time and explained celiac disease but either cross contamination or the waiter not being knowledgeable has contributed to me getting severely glutened. I won't be back!
As a celiac, I'm always scared of trying new restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised by the knowledge of our waitress. I ordered the BLT sandwich and it was delish! They don't have a dedicated fryer so stay away from that.
I ordered the bacon artichoke omelette with fruit and a side of single gf pancake. I told the waitress of my gluten "allergy" which she wrote down and didn't seem confused by but also didn't reassure me she understood either. I was worried when they brought the food to the table since the guy didn't say it was the gf pancake so I asked and he said it was. I took two bites and got scared that it tasted too good to be gf but after eating my whole omelette without issues, I went back to the pancake. I finished it and had no reaction at all! It was so good we went back to another one of these restaurants at a different location to have banana pancakes for breakfast this morning. This time the waiter delivering the food pointed out it was gf pancakes with banana. Ate half before I got full but never got sick at all. Ps the OJ is delish!
Employees are not aware of their allergen menu. Not knowledgeable about gluten free menu. Employee sounded annoyed when I asked about the ingredients. Not warranty this restaurant is focused about cross contamination. Dairy free? Nuts? Gluten?
Very poor food service.
They have two choices in gluten free bread for sandwiches, choose breakfast potatoes, broccoli slaw or fresh fruit as a side. Also gluten free pancakes. Try the gluten free pumpkin pancakes in fall. Stay away from their hollandaise Sauce though. It's got wheat in it. I did ask them about their pancake syrup and they explained it's a corn syrup base made with no wheat and no gluten in the ingredients but they can't account for any cross contamination at manufacturing. They will however run to the market and get gluten free marked syrup if you ask them to as soon as you sit down and place your drink order if they can spare the staff. That's pretty cool.
horrible tease. told no written gf menu but waitresses know by heart. "well we have gf pancakes & can modify some other things" gave me false hope. "great which items can be modified" was met with a blank stare.yeah, no thanks!! filthy sticky table friends 2 meals $40....going to in n out burger for double double animal protein style
I had higher expectations from previous reviews. While the gf pancakes were good, there was no gf syrup option. The server offered honey, but not really what I wanted for my pancakes. The food here is good and the staff great but I won't get the pancakes again unless they come up with a syrup option.
GF pancakes rated 5 star by hubby and son. The four star rating is due to limited choices which are GF. Overall, my husband who is not GF said they tasted like regular fluffy pancakes, which is saying a lot!
