Ate here for the first time and thought it was excellent. I would recommend both the Hashbrown Omelet and Cinnamon Roll. Service was good and the meal was inexpensive.

Give them a call and ask. We were just there and they are allergy friendly like always but didn't ask about gluten.

I would call the restaurant directly as it is too serious for a traveler to make a guess.
