Do not eat here- every time I have eaten here, I’ve gotten sick. They have a GF bread that tastes really good, but there must be cross contamination in the kitchen.

Their online menu sometimes lists the GF bread as an option for a pricey $3 upcharge.

Online menu and store menus do not list ingredients or GF options. Save yourself a lot of pain and eat somewhere else!

The staff was a bit short and messed up the toppings on every order but the sandwiches were amazing. Neither of us had any reaction and can’t wait to go back.

Would not recommend this place if you have celiac. Order a salad and talked to them about the cross contamination. When the gal was making my Salad she was also doing others at the same time which had wheat. So ask to remake mi e which they did but again with cross contamination. So ask for money back. Manager was very rude argue with us Finally give money back and total us to leave. This was my first time in the one in Lakewood and last!!!!

I explained to them that I had Celiac Disease and they assured me it would be done separately. I opened my bag and realized oyster crackers were added into my bag (clearly not gluten free) and Nima tested the sandwich and soup. Both came back positive for gluten. So disappointed.

Everything was very good but on the expensive side. However the bread didn’t taste like I was missing out on anything like most gf bread. It was just a good meal. I’ll be back.

The bread alone is worth the trip (and is made locally in Longmont), but the entire sandwich was really delicious.

Terrible service. The manager or owner sat on her phone and watched me wait for service for 5 minutes and as I was leaving without being helped she than yelled for her workers. It was too late

Food was relatively quick. Pretty good. They had a gluten free bun option, though I didn't get one. I would go back again. 3 Celiac individuals in our group, 3 different items ordered, no one got sick. And like I said, was pretty good, too.

I eat here every time I am in town. Their gluten free bread is great and worth the up charge. They can make almost anything gf. They even have 5 breakfast options. They do not have chips though which is weird considering all the sand which options.

I asked for a gluten-free menu and placed my order off the gluten-free menu. when the ordered came it w as on regular bread. When I asked of it wa s gluten-free the server said you didn't say to make it gluten-free and proceeded to argue with me. Finally remade sandwich on a stale gf baguette and the filing was not adjusted for size and density of bread.

Baguette was just ok. The bread was quite dry and fell apart. But one good thing was they were very accommodating for gluten free customers and prepared it separately and changed gloves etc

About $13 for a large drink and sandwich. Sand which was really good and almost a foot long. No chips available. Cashier wasn't friendly. Did not get sick!

They have delicious GF sub sandwich style breads and can make just about any of their sandwiches list on the menu into GF.

This is not a restaurant for people with Celiac disease. They were nowhere near careful enough with our gluten free order, and we did get very sick. Don't even risk it here, no matter how bad you want a sandwich.

They do offer gf options. While waiting for our food I had the opportunity to view the kitchen staff. One of the cooks hugged another worker, his gloves touched the back of the other and didn't change gloves. (Not just a Celiac issue.)One worker on the final prep side had NO gloves and handled our gf bread and also other orders. Even though I specified one of our sandwiches had to be gf, I don't believe they really understood what to do. I asked the gloveless worker, "Shouldn't you be wearing gloves?" He said sorry and put them on after I told him my husband couldn't eat the food he had just prepared due to cross-contamination. He replied that he didn't realize it was for a Celiac order. (Even though I shared this info when I ordered. Maybe they don't have a way of sharing this with all the workers?) The worker then changed gloves and the cook prepared another sandwich. A third worker picked up my husband's (2nd) sandwich and I couldn't say for sure that he had new gloves, but I seriously doubt it. Perhaps if you can go at a slow time between meals you would have better luck. They did place the sandwich on gf bread and on foil before going through the toaster oven. This was at the Edwards, CO location. No complaints about the quality or taste, just about their understanding of cross-contamination.

They are either closed or have moved. There is a Freebird Burrito or something like that at the address listed for this location.

They have GF BREAD!!! They can make just about any of their sandwiches from the menu into GF. I have seriously not had a sandwich this good in years since having to be GF! Their GF bread was a full size sub bun style and very soft & delicious! Definitely my new favorite!

The gluten free bread is some of the best I've had. They only have one size so If you order a foot long you will get two sandwiches. I was stuffed after one.

I can't comment on how celiac friendly this place is, as I didn't ask about their specific protocol for gf orders. I think there's always an inherent risk dealing with sandwich shops since there is so much bread floating around.
