I have a food allergy. Will I be able to eat at the Cafe? expand_more

We take food allergies seriously and want you to feel safe while dining with us. We utilize restaurant-style descriptions and naming to provide information about the main ingredients and are happy to answer additional ingredient questions and provide product labels for you to review upon request. We cook from scratch in our kitchens and handle foods that are sources of all top allergens. Our menus change frequently, and manufacturers may change product formulations without our knowledge. For these reasons, our chefs and managers are the best source of real-time information about what was used that day in production. Please notify a team member if you have any questions and they will be happy to notify a manager who will be able to assist you.
