Sunday Brunch growing week to week!

July 31, 2014 - By - 0 Comments

Many know we have a great gluten free menu and have for a long time. We’ve won 5280’s “Best Gluten Free Restaurant” and been recognized by several local celiac support groups. And because of this, we have been asked repeatedly to serve brunch, not just on special occasions, but regularly. Other restaurants do brunch, yes, but they don’t do gluten free like we do.

In March we began serving brunch, on Sundays only, beginning at 10am. We have “make your own omelets”, eggs benedict, breakfast burritos, and more, and everything on the menu will have a delicious gluten free option. We also have many of our favorite lunch items available.


Hope you can join us this Sunday!

Below is our menu or download here:
