This place advertised gluten free pancakes AND gluten free waffles, which if you've been eating gluten free for any length of time know that gluten free waffles is a rarity. The problem is that even though they may offer gluten free items, I don't believe the cooks or wait staff have been educated on the equally important concept of cross contamination. I happened to ask where the gluten free pancakes were cooked and was told "on the griddle." I asked, "The same griddle you just cooked the regular pancakes on??" And the nice waitress responded, "Yes!" With NO clue that those gluten free pancakes were no longer "gluten free" now. After explaining the problem she still had no clue how to fix it. Finally she suggested having the cook use a separate pan. Imagine if I hadn't asked?? I would have assumed that since they offered gluten free items they'd know not to contaminate them --- obviously they don't! So my recommendation for this place is to make sure you go over with them each step in the preparation department to make sure you don't end up suffering the effects of unintended gluten consumption via cross contamination. And btw--the gluten free pancakes were some of the worst I've eaten. Egglectic cafe's are 10 times better.
