i worked here as a server for 5 months, they train their servers well in what is gluten free and what is not…. but they have 2 large grills in the back that they cook everything on, pancakes, bread, eggs, meat, etc. so you have to stress the gluten allergy and see if they have a separate pan to cook your food on to prevent cross contamination. i highly recommend the açaí bowl, but double check that the brand of granola is gluten free. they do not have any gluten free bread, biscuits, pancakes so you have to stick to the basics.

Although there were only a few items on the menu that were marked as gluten free, the waiter was knowledgeable about cross contamination. I swapped my biscuit for gluten free toast, which is toasted in a separate toaster.

Everything is great here, the manager even came out to assure me that all my food was taken care of and walked me through the process of how it was prepared. I have never gotten sick here and have enjoyed the grits, piedmont omelette, side of bacon sausage, mimosas, and even gf toast in a dedicated toaster! Delicious!

GF items are marked as such on the menu. They do not offer any alternatives to biscuit or toast. I wish they at least had GF bread available. “Moon dust” potatoes labeled as GF in one place on menu and not GF in another place. Unremarkable experience

No gluten free biscuit or bread substitutions available, even though the Google menu listing indicates otherwise. The Chorizo hash was really tasty, enjoyed it with no problems later.

I had the very berry salad with chicken, and it was good! I ordered the salad because I thought it was the least likely to be cross contacted. I did have to send it back because they put walnuts on it, and I have a walnut allergy, so I wouldn't say that their allergy precautions are very strong. I didn't sit inside because I usually get a headache from airborne gluten. I think it is possible to eat safely here, but I would be cautious.

They have good food I’m just not super confident that it is safe for people with celiacs. I’ve eaten there a couple times and I’ve never had extreme reactions but my stomach tends to feel a little off. Could be something else and not related but I would be cautious when eating here.

Gluten-free items were marked on the menu (eggs, omelettes, grits, potatoes, fruit, yogurt). Our son (Celiac) had the smoked salmon scramble, grits and gluten-free bread/toast. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. There are no gluten free biscuits or pancakes.

While the menu does include gluten free options and is clearly marked, the staff, including the manager know VERY LITTLE about celiac disease or even allergies. I ordered one of the GF menu items and stated that I had a “gluten allergy” (I have celiac). My meal was brought with a biscuit on my plate. I told them I had an allergy and my meal would have to be remade. The manager came back not a minute later with my meal. I told him, I have an allergy and simply removing the biscuit that was touching the rest of my meal was not enough. Not 2 minutes later I’m brought half of my meal on one plate (same color as it was the first time with the biscuit) and the other half on another plate. Let’s just say my stomach is already letting me know I did not receive a fully remade meal. Steer clear, I’d give zero stars if it were an option.

You must pay for a biscuit, even though you can’t eat it, because they will not allow you to sub the biscuit. The server suggested I try the toast instead...so, clearly the staff isn’t trained well. My plate came out with the biscuit on my omelette. I sent it back and they brought me a “new” plate within a minute saying someone else had ordered the same meal but it didn’t have a biscuit on it yet...except I could see where the biscuit used to be and there was a big chunk of biscuit in my grits. Will not be returning.

I would not say it’s celiac friendly if you are super sensitive. I started feeling sick just sitting in the restaurant. There is flour in the air! Also the staff were not super sure they could fix any food safely. They were like we can try but if you get sick off gluten it’s a risk. I ended up leaving before eating. I appreciate their honesty though.

Several gf breakfast selections. Most dishes come with a biscuit, even if marked gf - make sure to tell them to leave it off or it will be on your plate.

Food is good. Husband loved the non gf pancakes. Some interesting breakfast options you won’t see elsewhere.

I would avoid this place especially if you have celiac. The server was not knowledgeable at all and told us the açaí bowl was GF but it had granola on it that had wheat in it. She literally rolled her eyes at me when I told her I had a gluten allergy and was super rude to me and my whole party. Also found hairs in my napkin and in my food. This place is gross.

I was worried when I went after reading some of the reviews from other locations. Here's my take:Not Celiac friendly. There is too much stuff in the air that's not controllable by the kitchen. Make sure you ask about everything. Take nothing for granted. So being paranoid helped me enjoy myself immensely. I had the vegan scramble thing. So good.

Honestly, I'm not a big breakfast person, but this place makes some really good food. The first time I went there, they places non gluten free biscuits on my plate though I told them it needs to be gluten free. I don't have cross contamination issues, so it wasn't a big deal, but if you do have issues, make sure to stress that no bread can be placed on the plate. Each meal comes with bread, I believe. The awesome thing was that they had gluten free bread to have with my meal! I will definitely come back!

Good GF identification on menu, servers definitely did not seem knowledgeable about the topic. No breads. Food was decent, I didn't have the same experience with generous portions. Ultimately, I thought it was only so-so, but nice to have a place to go for breakfast.
