One of the best breakfast places in Holland. Good variety of food including things other than breakfast items. Busy place, good service. Many Hope College students like to eat here. They have many specials at very good prices.

Great selection of breakfast and lunch choices. Friendly service. Always has a bustling crowd. Not a quaint, nor a quiet place.

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.
