Got GF avocado toast. The bread was thick and large. I was sure it wasn’t GF but they assured me it was. They told me they sanitize, change gloves, etc. Delicious and didn’t get sick.

My only regret after 3 mornings in Philly is that I only had breakfast here on 2 of those mornings. The food here is pricey but delicious. Kitchen staff seemed knowledgeable about GF precautions and went out of their way to warn about the small possibility of cross-contamination. Dishes all marked with several allergens, with GF bread being able to substitute in numerous dishes for a GF result. Only disappointment was the extra $2 charge for GF bread, but you all know it really does cost more! Coffee was excellent and just to emphasize again, food was delicious.

No dedicated GF menu, very limited GF options. Ordering outside was online only, and no options existed to alter breakfast or lunch to GF bread. We saw other reviews state otherwise, and double checked. This was a bust

NOT CELIAC SAFE. I was ordering for myself and my partner. I asked if the soy they use contains gluten and they didn’t really know the answer but told me no. As I was watching I observed one of the prep staff holding bread over open containers and cutting the bread in half in the air- which is just weird and unsafe in general too. Next I watched the same person walk over to where my partners food was being prepped by someone else and take a loaf of some baked good and bang it on the counter next to her food. I also couldn’t tell if the prep cook working on her food was wearing gloves. I had told the woman ringing me up that cross contamination was an issue. I don’t think it clicked for her which is why I decided to watch carefully. Manager got it right away and was going to refund just her food. Comped me the whole meal instead. Food was fine. Coffee was solid. If you don’t have food allergies it’s not a bad choice but if you have celiac I’d avoid, staff is too young and immature to really ‘get it’.

DO NOT TRUST THIS PLACE. I went there and asked for gluten free options in the pantry place and someone gave me this supposed gluten free sweet bread. I was amazed at how delicious it was and went back a couple weeks later. We saw the same bread and mentioned that it was the best gluten free bread ever! The server (a different person) informed us that it was not in fact gluten free. We did some tests, and of course we realized my health problems had been triggered and had to go down that long hole. :(

We went for breakfast, but all the muffins and pastries were in the same display, uncovered. We asked if they had any out back, but they said no. The girl looked at us as if we were fussy, we left

I wasn’t as lucky with the contamination. I’m pretty sure everything on my plate was gluten free ingredients, but I don’t think the kitchen was gluten free. I definitely got contaminated and was sick after eating the food. Make sure to tell your server that you are gluten intolerant/celiac.... maybe that’s where I went wrong?

Almost all of the items on the menu can be made gluten free, including the avocado toast and other bread dishes since they have GF bread. I had the banana bread with ricotta, honey, and fruit which was delicious and didn’t need any modifications! They also have a great selection of coffee/tea drinks and fresh juices.

Great coffee w alt milk options (almond, oat, soy). Menu labels for GF, NF, DF items. Menu has disclaimer so I can’t tell whether it’s truly unsafe, or just a corporate CYA, unfortunately.

Went for dinner - the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. Tested the pea appetizer and my hangar steak with my Nima sensor and it passed. They have a gluten free menu but ask questions because for example - the potatoes with the steak were fried in the same oil as gluten but they were so helpful in subbing it out for something else. Be super clear with them and you should be good!

Delicious but overpriced. Not that diverse on the GF front. Coffee is very nice. Customer service can improve massively. 3 stars for the whole experience not just GF.

They have GF bread for sandwich and toasts but it’s toasted in same toaster as regular bread. So basically they don’t care. They’re looking into sourcing some GF pastries but as of May 2018 they have none. Nice place but sort of pointless GF menu for those who need it.

1st Breakfast stop after flying into NYC and it was amazing, had GF Banana Bread which was topped with Ricotta and Raspberries! I added 3 poached eggs which were perfectly cooked for my taste. Oh and of course, coffee was a must, happy I had the option for almond milk!

Just to give you an idea: gf banana bread, avocado smash on gf bread and yogurt with fresh berries(gf granola)! This place was amazing! I had the banana bread and so enjoyed it! Also, great spot if you just want to grab coffee! Took one star off because it is a bit pricey.
