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.
Said do the best we can but probably not safe for celiacs.
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.
Very good gluten free french toast. However, most of their meals include a gluten biscuit, which they placed on top of the gluten free food. Fortunately, our celiac daughter is not highly sensitive.
Their food is delicious! I have been here several times. There are many Gluten Free options to choose from. I always mention that I need my food prepared Gluten Free for an allergy and the waitstaff is always very helpful.
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!
OMG!! Love the Flying Biscuit!! They have gluten free, dairy free bread for your meal!! And they have very good gluten free options for other foods as well like gluten free grits, omelets, and even their famous Flying Biscuit breakfast is GF!! We definitely recommend the Flying Biscuit for a yummy breakfast!!
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.
This place has an amazing breakfast! Their grits are literally OUT OF THIS WORLD! It makes it worth the 5 stars just for the grits! I have celiac and have eaten here a few times and it's been great! Lots of choices and they have GF toast! I am very sensitive and I've never gotten sick. They actually care about their GF patrons.
Good list of gluten-free menu items, but even marked gluten-free on the menu the patron should be sure to still ask the waiter for the gluten-free version. Some waitstaff were not 100% educated about what gluten-free entailed so I deducted 1 star. The food here, particularly breakfast food, is DELICIOUS. Healthy portion sizes, reasonably priced, very diverse menu, and I felt great after eating there. I definitely recommend Flying Biscuit Cafe.
The Flying Biscuit Cafe has so many gluten free options! On the menu, there is a gf beside anything that is gluten free (no changes required). I had the egg-ceptional eggs which was 2 black bean cornmeal cakes with 2 over easy eggs, green tomatillo salsa, feta cheese, and sour cream. It came with a side of grits which were awesome. Just make sure to ask for no biscuit.
Lovely waitresses and no problem getting a gluten-free meal at this southern/sandwiches/breakfast cafe. Amazingly good grits. The only reason I am deducting a star is that there were flies, and some of the dishes were too salty (though no more so than i have found in several other local restaurants). Despite the salt issue, I will definitely be returning because the overall experience was good.
