Gluten: For our customers who prefer products without gluten, we stock gluten free bread and at least two different Artisan baked cakes. Because we work with bread and there may be particles of gluten in the air, we cannot claim that our soups are 100% gluten free, however, we do not use any products containing gluten in our soups, with the exception of broth which contains barley.

At the beginning of every day we have vegetarian and vegan options of panini's, rolls and soups, however, they are popular and do tend to sell out quickly.
