We had breakfast here and were surprised to see gf pancakes as an option on the menu. My celiac wife and I both had them and they were delicious. There are no guarantees about cross contamination but my wife takes enzymes and supplements such that minor cross contamination is not a big concern.
We didn't have lunch but I saw they listed Udi's rolls and bread available as an option.
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
— Separate gluten-free menu
They try to keep their food from cross contamination but they can’t guarantee it. They even have a printed warning on their menu that states that all food is prepared in the same area and will likely come in contact with gluten.
I had the Tuscan chicken with yellow rice and fresh fruit. It was delicious. For any DF people this doesn’t work for you. It is covered in melted cheese which I sadly discovered once it was delivered.
The serve was good. Our server was very friendly and accommodating.
— Separate gluten-free menu
They offer gluten free bread (Udi’s) and gluten free pancakes as a sub for most of their breakfast items. Not sure if the bread is made in a separate toaster or not. I had the gluten free pancakes and they were delicious. Staff seemed knowledgeable about celiac and gluten allergies. They had a nice patio as well which made for a very good breakfast.
They have gluten free bread that tastes okay. I had fries with my sandwich and they assured me they were safe. I did not have a reaction afterwards, but am unsure if I would recommend the restaurant as celiac friendly. The waitress acted like I was being high maintenance. I’ve eaten at the downtown location before and felt safer there.
Offerings on the gluten free menu are not really gluten free. GF bread and waffles are prepared in the same toaster and waffle iron as items with gluten ect. When I asked the manager about safe gluten-free options, I was offered steamed vegetables or fruit.
The food was reasonably priced and very good. It was one of the least expensive meals we had over the last few days and very good. We had a good experience and they were careful in the kitchen, but we were forewarned by our server that everything is prepared together and they do their best. So since it's not technically dedicated areas there is that possibility. My son did not react from his meal but I also had him take a few Gluten-Eze with his meal, which I know some people don't buy into but we do it as a precaution when we are out because you just have no guarantee unless you go to a dedicated GF place. Our son had a Tuscan Chicken that was wonderful. The Tuscan chicken alone was plenty, but it came with two sides that were also the size of meals! The Notso omelette was very good too. The fruit cup was plentiful and the fruit was definitely fresh. The golden hash browns were very good. My NON potato eating son enjoyed them. I would have rated 5 star, but we sat for quite some time waiting for a refill. Then when our server was standing near our table surveying the room I tried to get her attention but no go. Then she started wiping down a table and I had to use her name a few times to get her attention to request the refills.
Small,very cute cafe style restaurant. Great for families. Somewhat disappointed that they didn’t have a very wide selection of gf options.Overall very nice place and I enjoyed the meal I had! Would come again!!
I have not personally ate here since being diagnosed with celiac disease. However, my close friend works here and informed me that they do not prepare the gluten free items in a separate area; i.e. the gf pancakes. Cross contamination is an issue.If you have celiac disease or are super sensitive, be aware.
They have options available but be sure to constantly double check. We ordered the god hummus and they brought it out with pita bread. An easy catch since it is suppose to come with veggies..so, stay on your toes but know that I didn't get sick and I am highly sensitive.
Eaten at this location twice. First time I didn't get glutened but had received the wrong meal (with gluten) first. Second time I ordered I got glutened, sick for weeks. I don't know why this restaurant has so many good reviews, the whole atmosphere feels like it's about to close and I don't feel like they care about making gluten free food. They even put disclaimers all over everything basically saying it's not safe for Celiacs and comes into contact with gluten. So DON'T PUT GLUTEN FREE on it!!!! Celiacs, do not eat here.
We researched this place when we knew we were coming to town. Excited to see their gluten free options. I have never eaten GF pancakes out and they were wonderful! We also had eggs, gf toast (Udis) and GF hashbrown. Great food! They have a kids train table to play with. Good for little ones, but if you'd like a more quiet breakfast sit away from that area :)
Ate at the Beachwood location, which is very small. Had eggs, bacon, and gluten free hash browns and toast. Delicious. NO cross contamination issue despite small space. Caution: GF pancakes are cooked on same griddle as wheat. Best to stick with eggs and hash browns which are pan cooked, if you are super sensitive like me. They also have a dedicated toaster. GF bread was excellent. Great coffee. Great service.
Wonderful restaurant. We are traveling through Cleveland and I had two breakfasts here. Day 1, I had the Veggie Omelet with Udi's bread and day 2, the Greek Salad with grilled salmon. Both breakfasts were delicious.
Wow! Options galore! Even several breakfast offerings. Very accommodating, knowledgable & caring staff. Everything was perfect from start to finish & I left with a full, happy tummy & a smile on my face. No CC issues either. They have completely won me over.
I ate here with a large group on my last visit to Cleveland. Actually had brought wrapped GF toast in my purse, b/c had no idea that this restaurant was GF friendly, and went in expecting to order just eggs. Well, was I surprised when our server told us they offered GF pancakes & Udi's GF toast! They were knowledgeable and I felt reassured eating a huge breakfast there. The GF pancakes were outstanding! I was thrilled, because we were traveling that day, and airports & GF typically mean a banana & raw almonds. Best of all, I did not get sick, which tells me the kitchen staff was careful preparing my GF meal. I will visit here on my next trip to Cleveland for sure.
Nice family restaurant/diner with some variety of foods. And while they may seem like a medium to late bloomer in the gf thing, they are one of the few affordable restaurants around with new gf options like bread for sandwiches and burgers. Also pancakes. See their gf menu online.
