Absolutely incredible! Might be one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had. I highly recommend the salmon avocado toast on GF bread. The grapefruit gin drink was great too. Separate GF menu with items clearly marked for other allergies as well.

I got the gluten free French toast which was good. They used large pieces of bread which were really good.

While their menu if full of gluten free items, it is NOT safe for someone with celiac.

After we ordered, the manager thankfully brought our food out and asked my wife if she had celiac or it was a preference and that is when she explained that they make their biscuits in house so flour cross contamination is very real. They grill all their foods on the same grill and they bake their gluten free bread in the SAME toaster/oven as their biscuits.

Once we found that out, my wife opted to not eat and just munch on the bowl of fruit I had ordered as a side. They took her meal off our bill and apologized for not making that clear when we sat down.

It's a shame because the food I ordered was very good.

Bottom line, if cross contamination is an issue for you, do NOT eat here.

I had the Migas, which is a mildly spicy egg, sausage, and cheese scramble with a special sauce and pico de Gallo. On the regular menu, it is listed as served on tortilla chips. On the GF menu, there is no mention of the tortilla chips, however I did not notice that and was disappointed at the lack of chips since, in my experience, there are plenty of GF corn chips on the market. I missed the crunch that the chips would have provided. Aside from that, however, it was delicious. Staff incredibly friendly and gladly sat us just 5 minutes before closing.

I ordered the corned beef .... essentially served Benedict style with gluten free bread. Absolutely delicious. It is a brunch-focused menu, so heavy on the eggs in general. The result is that every item on the GF menu features eggs. If you don’t like eggs, you will have no options. But if you do like eggs, a fantastic meal with unique choices.

Gluten free menu was nice. The GF bread was okay. I ordered the French toast with bacon. I would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed their food so much that we ate here twice on our vacation. They have a wonderful selection of gluten free options. I love the fact that they have gluten free by their adult beverages because you really never know with mixes that go into them sometimes. Both mornings I had the gluten free French toast with bacon, and a side of eggs. Delicious! For drinks I tried the Morning Margarita, Bloody Mary and Boozy Iced Coffee. The Bloody Mary is spicy. I would eat here again and again.

Only 4 stars cause the waitressed did not seem to want to help me figure out what was gluten free since no GF menus. She did say they had GF bread, so I played it safe with the meat omelet (3 little pigs...I think) grits and the gf toast and was fine. Food was good. Probably not a good place for celiacs.

They don’t have a real menu to help you. And they don’t always have bread. Pretty much is order what u think will work. They say the Costarrican but I’m pretty sure there rice is not gluten-free.

It was dirty. The staff had no idea what was gluten free so I did not eat there. My husband ordered his food and it was the worse meal in New Orleans.

Not for celiacs - you can order omelettes and sandwiches without bread, but its definitely not GF. Our server was kind but knew nothing about GF and initially offered the oatmeal, which is not GF. Be careful

I ended up having an omelette and 2 sides of fruit. It was fair at best. My husband, who is not GF, enjoyed his breakfast. I didn’t feel great later that day, and I was very worried since we were at the museum. It’s a good place if you don’t have to be GF. I wish we went back to Powdered Sugar, but I was trying to be flexible....

Hostess was baffled when I asked about gluten free. My server even more so; she put her hands over her face and heaved a great sigh. Finally she got information from someone else. Ultimately I ate a tasty omelet but I do NOT recommend this place.

The hostess said they do not offer gluten free options. Since we had waited an hour and a half for a table, I was planning to sit with my family and not eat. The waitress was able to get an omelet and fruit for me and mention the gluten intolerance to the kitchen. I didn't get sick but would not recommend this place if you are celiac.

I trusted the other reviewer and had the Costa Rican breakfast with no issues. Menus do not have GF items marked, but the server was kind and spoke with the chef to be certain (that the grits are an option.)

I had a wonderful experience here. The waiter and manager were incredibly knowledgeable and responsive. I had the Gulf Fish St Peter with cheese grits instead of the grit cake and it was the best breakfast and piece of fish I've had in New Orleans. I will be back!
