This is a great local spot for breakfast. Food is fresh, homemade, and spot on for a reasonable price. Portions are large and the waitstaff is friendly. It can get busy, especially on a weekend though.

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.
