CELIACS BEWARE of this NOT very gluten-free friendly restaurant in Montpelier, VT,

CELIACS BEWARE. I found the Skinny Pancake by doing a search for restaurants with gluten-free options in Montpelier. The menu offers gluten-free batter alternatives for their crepes. I ordered one for my 5-year-old son who has celiac disease. When ordering food in restaurants I typically ask that his meal be prepared on a separate, clean surface. Unfortunately, and this was my mistake, I assumed that "gluten free" on the menu meant that the food really was gluten free. When I went back to order a second crepe I realized that I had forgotten to ask if the "gluten free" crepes were cooked on a separate surface and the response I got was, "well, how sensitive are you?" The employee then told me that they were not. I gave him a brief explanation of celiac disease and the havoc that even a miniscule amount of gluten can wreak on the digestive tract of a celiac sufferer. He responded that they do not have enough space to use one of their griddles exclusively for gluten-free crepe batter. I suggested that they either make room for a separate griddle or remove the term "gluten free" from the menu. Given the cavalier attitude toward cooking on separate surfaces, I wonder if the "gluten-free" batter is in fact contaminated with gluten during or after preparation in the kitchen.
