Awesome little place. I got the pork grilled cheese that was huge. I’m a big guy but I couldn’t finish it. Salad was great too!

I did some snooping around and found this review on tripadvisor. It's from 2013 so I don't know if they still do. It would be best to google the restaurant to get their contact information and ask them. “Gluten free... More
