It was good! The eggs were not quite as done as I'd have liked, but I had no reaction to the food. The kitchen staff told me that they make everything that is gluten free separate from the gluten products (so eggs are made on a grill where no gluten is also cooked, for example).

I asked them for something sweet and gluten free. They made a custom “stuffed French toast” using a gluten free cinnamon bagel!

Delicious gluten-free breakfast. Staff knew what we needed, knew what we could safely substitute and advised against ordering menu items that could be cross contaminated.

I had the corned beef hash which came with breakfast potatoes, eggs and fresh fruit of berries and melon. The potatoes are fried in the same fryer but I talked to the executive chef and he says he can boil them in water instead and then could sauté so they will not be cross contaminated.

They also have turkey sausage and turkey bacon. It is uncured and no fillers.

They have fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juices

The chicken is Coleman brand and antibiotic free.

Separate waffle maker for gf waffles and they clean the grill very often and will clean grill before making your pancakes if requested.

I would call the chef out to the table because the waiter was not up to date on the particulars.

Overall it was a great experience!

They also use free range omega 3 eggs.

Upon entering the restaurant the door handles are whisks. I knew I was in for a special treat. My breakfast was amazing. All foods are labeled GF. The staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant if in the area.

Visited here for brunch. Other than replacing bread and ordering eggs there was very little our 9 year old could eat. They were able to adapt the menu and make her a grilled cheese sandwich but definitely not gf pasta or pancakes available as listed by a previous diner.

There is no GF menu. Omelette, salad and fruit bowl are the only safe options. No GF bread.

Echoing another reviewer, gluten free options were essentially just salad and staff made no suggestions of any other options that could be modified.

Staff was aware of GF needs. Omelette was great. Service was great. Potatoes are dipped in flour so I was disappointed that I couldn’t have them. Would definitely go again.

Nothing is gluten free other than salad and fruit. Everything else is cooked on shared surfaces, including shared fryer. Definitely not okay for Celiacs. Not sure why it’s appearing in this ap.

This place has been great about hearing their customer’s GF needs and making adjustments. They offer GF flatbread now, as well as GF waffles. It’s so nice to find places that want to give their GF customers interesting food and not just salad.

Great GF omelette with a GF bagel on side. Knowledgeable wait staff. Was told there’s a notice to the kitchen for gluten allergies. Wait staff even pointed out potatoes are fried in the same fryer as gluten products & served separately (or replaced).

Very disappointing! The GF Eggs Benedict was gross! We couldn’t eat the bagel because it was so hard, lacked flavor, and service was slow. We will not be returning! Also, so overpriced!

The food here is amazing, unfortunately however, there aren't many gluten free or dairy free options (or other allergies). For gluten free you can do eggs or a salad, with one or two other main dish options (which all have dairy). The waitstaff is very friendly and willing to assist to try and accommodate, but the options are just limited.

They do not have a separate gluten free menu but are accommodating. I ate at one location and also another location. Was not told at the first location that the black beans are not gluten free ( thankfully didn’t eat them) but was told at the second location I ate at that the black beans have gluten in them.

Server was not knowledgeable at all. Even after emphasizing that I was a celiac and expressing that I could not have ANY wheat - they still brought my breakfast out with toast touching my eggs. Sounds silly but one crumb can make me sick for days.

The food was nothing special for the price. My omelette was tasty but dry and under seasoned. It cost extra to substitute fruit for potatoes. My bill came to $20 for an omelette with fruit and a coffee. The menu specifies which dishes can be altered and made GF but it doesn't tell you how. I was expecting potatoes and GF toast and just got fruit. The fruit was very good, though! I just wish the menu, or my server, had specified GF meant no potatoes or toast.
