Carry gluten free foods!

I live in Palmer so I frequent many of the restaurants, and Turkey Red is one of my favorites. Their breakfast potatoes are to die for! Excellent service, great menu and gluten free substitutions. They don't have brewed decaf coffee however, you have to order an espresso to get that.

I ate breakfast and lunch here on two different occasions recently. The food was very good. Waffles with berries one time, and an omelette the other time. Coffee was great. No WiFi though, which I think would increase business a lot for the owners (hint, hint). My only other suggestion / complaint is the servers were very eager to bring... More

After spending the afternoon with icebergs we were ready for a great meal. TripAdvisor said that Turkey Red is the place in Parker. The GPS lady got us to the general area but not the exact spot. The outside blends in with the local community but the inside is filled with a fashionable ambiance. The counter for takeout made us... More

Good farm to table restaurant. Service is good, relaxed atmosphere. The food is locally sourced. I had the salmon, it was a bit over cooked. My hubby's chicken dish was excellent.

You don't go here for a quick meal. You go here for some good wine, good food and enjoy the time you wait to talk with your partner you bring with you. I love their chocolate torte for dessert.. yum!

We had a group of around 30 people for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Just being a member of the family I did not set it up, but was pleased overall with the experience. They had us in a large room to ourselves with a single waitress working with us, she did have some help when bringing the meals. She was... More

Four years ago we happened into Turkey Red and had a fantastic meal. This time when we came through Palmer again, we knew we wanted to swing in again. We arrived on Saturday night at about 5:30pm and it was pretty busy. We were able to get a table and ordered the polenta parmigiana (which we had tried to replicate... More

This cafe came highly recommended, we found the service to be below average along with the food. Our waitress was not friendly, had no suggestions for a first time patron and extremely slow. The food was bland and way over priced. We were in Palmer for several days but we were all in agreement to dine elsewhere.

Each day has a different homemade soup. The sausage soup on our day wasn't my favorite, but I'm not a big sausage fan. On the other hand, the caprese salad with fresh grown tomatoes was a hit. Nice stop for lunch on the road. The pastries and homemade desserts look good, but we didn't try.
