Nearly every type of smoothie is gluten-free but they have virtually no GF food. There is a menu posted with marked GF options.

There really isn’t many options on the menu but if you ask for basically any wrap in a bowl they provide and are very careful, the person taking your order always personally goes and makes your order. I have never dealt with cross contamination. And really enjoy the food.

Most smoothies are GF, all “boosts” are GF as well. Food and oat products are not GF.

Definitely not celiac safe when it comes to the food. The rolls/wraps/flatbread are stored just above all the ingredients and crumbs can very easily fall on everything as they take them out of the packages. They grab all the ingredients by hand so asking them to change gloves beforehand would be pointless since everything would have already been touched after touching the bread items. The smoothies should be safe, though some do have oats.

This is a smoothie cafe for sure. I’m not sure how many of the food options are available gluten free as I usually just get a smoothie here, but they do have salads which I have had in the past and not had any reaction from.

I really adore this place. They have tasty, clean smoothies and salads that help me to reset on the road or when I am extra busy and have to grab a bite from a “fast food” place.

Zero options for gluten free food with the exception of chips and fresh fruit. Nearly all of the smoothies are gluten. They have a very easy to read nutritional facts sheet labeled with gluten free choices.

Didn't go for food so I'm not sure what they offer that could be gluten free, but most of their smoothies are gf. Make sure to double check though, because I saw that some of them aren't (looking at their online allergen info). I went through the drive through and got their tropical green smoothie and it was very good, bigger than I expected.

Only got a smoothie and it was good, asked them to clean the container for me. They have a sign on the door that says they cannot guarantee allergen safety.

Items are clearly marked with allergens - many smoothies are gluten free, if not all of them, as well as many of the protein powders available. Wraps can be made into bowls without a tortilla and they are delicious! Manager was helpful when I asked about allergens as well.

They have a dedicated allergy blender. I forgot to tell them about my allergy before they made my smoothie but they remade it for me in the GF blender no problem. They were very accommodating. However, I did have some of the original smoothie before I realized and ended up getting glutened (totally my fault and not the facility’s), so make sure you do request the allergy blender.

Nice place for lunch with plenty of GF options (vegan too). Only downside was they had no GF wraps so had to get plant based meats or wraps made into a salad. Delicious!

I ordered something that should have been gluten free, but had a reaction within minutes of starting it. They do say on their website not to order something if you actually have celiacs because the kitchen cross contaminates, so this is my bad. But just so everyone else is aware, I figured I'd give my experience.

I asked for an allergy menu and they didn't know what I was talking about. I tried to explain that I had a gluten allergy and they were all clueless. I decided not to even attempt a salad with with the fear of getting sick.

The staff member was very knowledgeable. The manager gave me all of my options for celiac and knew about cross-contamination. He offered to clean area and get a new smoothie jars out to avoid cross-contamination. Offered to make sandwiches into salads. The food was good but very small portions. My smoothie was really good.

Many GF smoothie options. Few other options. Wraps and sandwiches not GF. Loaded spinach salad is GF. Would be better if had GF bread or tortillas available.

I wanted a blueberry pineapple smoothie. They were able to change the paradise point to meet my needs. It was fruit, water and sugar. Next time I would ask for OJ instead of water and sugar. Not bad for a smoothie made away from home. Cross contamination could be an issue, I am fairly sensitive intolerant and had no problems.
