The staff are very friendly and organized. We waited 15 minutes but got to visit next door at the Savory Pantry, they will come and get you. We had breakfast and it was average quality, but the location was very convenient. We would visit again.

Check online and hopefully they are keeping it up to date. My daughter needs to be GF but is able to eat buckwheat. Maybe with celiac disease this is not the case.
