This place is really cool. It's an old house converted to seat tables. Went on a Sunday morning and had about a 10 minute wait. Food was excellent and they had chocolate chips for the kid pancakes.

We went for breakfast because it was touted as being "inexpensive". Not so. 5 people and $78 is a bit much for 2 omlettes, biscuits and gravy, and 2 orders of french toast. Waiter was very good though. Biscuits and gravy were cold. Portions were...More

Alas I don't remember if there were gluten free dishes either. I would suggest you call and see if they would be able to accommodate your request.
