Good coffee and breakfast menu on a Sunday at noon. Most had eggs Benedict which were quite good. Coffee and pastries another time also very good.

Stopped in here for a quick breakfast. The menu is great and the scones are out of this world. Definitely a place I would visit again.

Didn't see any gluten free but it is a very large menu, so a phone call to them could be worthwhile.
