I have been twice and both times my meal came out with toast on my plate even though I clearly said I had a gluten allergy and to not give me any bread. I would t order the Udi’s either bc they use the same toaster. Both times they apologized and remade the food and I did not get sick either time. The food was good. I just do not have any confidence in their ability to handle allergy/celiac or high sensitivity.

They have udi GF bread available. I usually get eggs Benedict. They ask if it is an allergy or preference when I order. I dont react to CC. I would definitely there is CC.

The food was delicious and my order came out marked gluten free. My one complaint is that the regular menu does not list which items are gluten free, so I had to look at their online menu instead. The online menu is very detailed though and lists ALL allergen information. I looked it up ahead of time so I was ready to order when I was there.

Excellent experience. The manager, Paul, came to our table to discuss the menu and options for our GF/DF/SF kids. He helped us select items and turned the order in himself to make sure the kitchen took the necessary precautions. And good food!

I had breakfast here twice and ordered lunch to go over the weekend. The omelets were good, I definitely recommend the Bocado. The staff were very aware of allergy and cross contamination issues. All of my dishes were marked with an allergy stick and brought out to me separately from gluten containing meals. They had Udis bread as a sub for regular toast.

The waitresses here always make sure my order is correct and often detect any issues before I do. I have other allergies besides gluten and they’ve always been able to accommodate my needs. The food is always great and they have a menu online that outlines the allergens in all their menu items.

I thought it was a local place with a similar name. It’s some kind of chain - essentially, a Cracker Barrel at double the price. Food is OK, but it worth eating again, and not safe enough to really risk.

I have celiac disease and eat here weekly. I feel they generally handle it well here and the staff has enough training. I don't do the gluten free toast or bread because they don't have a dedicated gluten free toaster; they can put it on the griddle but I just prefer to not have it. I love the omelets and skillet hash bowls. There are also gluten free quinoa bowls. Look at the allergen guide. The maple syrup is not gluten free, nor is the chorizo.

They offer gluten free options but they do not seem to have any process to handle the gluten free request once the order is sent to the kitchen. My omelette arrived with wheat toast on the plate even after I stated no toast since they use a shared toaster for their gluten free toast. I had to wait for a replacement meal while my family ate. I hope First Watch management is able to implement some basic processes to better handle gluten free orders.

They offer gluten free toast but it is toasted in the same toaster as regular toast, so not celiac safe. The only options they recommended as safe were the quinoa bowls and the chia seed pudding. I had the pudding which was fine, but without the granola and toast it was not very filling. I was also disappointed with the presentation, as they left the stems on some blueberries and the end on a banana. Plus they had the toast on the plate anyway.

After speaking with the manager I was more confident in this establishment. They took the time to clarify if I had an intolerance vs allergy vs celiac and made sure to provide me with all the knowledge they had.

Food was excellent! Make sure to clarify with staff. They put flour in their cheese to help keep it from sticking so any cheese is not GF, however, they were more than willing to accommodate this and omit the cheese for extra veggies!

Super cute breakfast place! I can’t wait to go back. Just make sure to clarify with the waiter, manager and chefs before eating anything. They made a small mistake on my order and promptly fixed it- no hassle at all!

When you ask about a gluten-free menu, you are given a large laminated allergen guide from which you choose your meal. The gf column tells you which items are gluten free. There aren't many, but there are some egg dishes and Udi bread, not one of the better tasting or textured breads for the gf diet. It would be nice to have more selections, but what they offer are good.

The food is okay and they offer a lot of gluten free and dairy free options, BUT it’s probably best to ask for a manager before ordering. They have gluten free toast, but it’s toasted with the regular bread. So I asked for no bread at all. Her food came out after mine AND it had a big piece of regular bread right on top of her eggs!!! So they had to go make it again. By the time her food came out, I was done eating. I’ll probably go back, but not with my daughter :(

I used to visit this location all the time but then they removed their gluten-free toaster. Not a deal breaker but was a bit of a red flag in my mind. The last time I visited I told the waiter I was Celiac and that my meal (a naturally gluten-free dish) needed to be gluten-free and I didn’t want any bread. My meal was brought out with regular ciabatta bread on the plate. I sent this back (stressed again that even crumbs can make me sick) and 5 minutes later the same dish came back, only now minus the bread. At this point I don’t feel safe eating anything there and can not recommend it to other Celiacs.
