I’ve eaten here many times and never gotten sick. I follow their gluten free menu recommendations and also alert the staff that I have celiac disease when ordering. The staff always seems knowledgeable and helpful.

I had their original rice bowl, which was quite tasty. The service was friendly and relaxed. The only disappointing thing was that the awesome looking cookies, half dipped in chocolate, are not GF. This is a good place for a quick rice bowl lunch; with a variety of options if you are with a large group of people.

I absolutely love Cafe Yumm! When my celiac family and I order, we make sure to tell the servers we have a gluten allergy, which means they follow a special protocol against cross-contamination. The food is yummy and we haven’t gotten sick. We’d recommend the Hot and Jazzy bowl!

The cashier lied to me when I asked if everything was gluten free. She simply stated “yes” which should have been my warning. I will accept some blame for being naive. This was my first trip to Seattle and the excitement of having gluten free options kind of had me being too trusting with trying new places. I thought I had read that this place was 100%. They are not. The cashier even told me the wraps were gluten free so that is what I ordered. THE WRAPS ARE NOT GLUTEN FREE. I do not recommend this place for those with celiac disease.

So good. Many things are gluten free and they have a gluten free menu. It's quite expensive for a bowl of rice though. So I think twice before spending $24 on two bowls of rice.. but it is super yummy. FYI you can buy their yumm sauce at Roths in the fridge area by the cheese and make your own

I loved whole bowl when I was living in Portland, OR. This is the next closest and I think it’s Yumm lol. It’s healthy, they can make most items gf and you can buy their Yumm sauce separately. It’s definitely worth trying!

Clean restaurant. Staff very nice. Interesting concept but needs work. Gluten Free food isn’t labeled properly and staff has to keep checking with the cooks and there is always confusion. Also, very unhealthy junk canola oil is in most of the food. No one should be ingesting a fake lab made industrial oil like canola, especially people with autoimmune diseases. This place could be safer to eat at, but they need to work on a few things. I wish them luck as they make adjustments.

Ate here once before and do not recall getting sick. This time, not the case. I asked specific question, was clear about my Celiac Disease and cross-contamination issues, and double check that she would note on my ticket about my severe allergy, which she confirmed. I got gluten-bombed right away. Not ideal pre-flight.

Cashier pulled out a nutrition guide from under the counter, apparently it's online too. The only non-GF category is their wraps and bentos, and those are reportedly prepared in a separate area of the kitchen. Portion sizes aren't the best for the price but I liked the Original bowl with chicken.
