I had lunch on a Sunday with friends at Cafe La Gaffe. The portions of salad and fruit were generous along with my main. With the dark red walls covered in art, the atmosphere is very cozy. The service was prompt, attentive and very friendly.

They were very accommodating, give them a call and check. I think they had gluten free, not sure about other, but they are very helpful there. Worth calling and asking.
