I lived here for three years and never much liked the place. Had only come for lunch or dinner. Not bad but not great either. Then a neighbor informed me that they did breakfast. Breakfast? I tried it. The rest is history.

Yes, they do! During our visit, a friend with us inquired about gluten-free items. My apologies, but I do not recall what specific menu items were gluten-free.
