Do you have or can you get any gluten free pastas. I am both vegan and Gluten free, but I am on a low protein diet which can be very dificult when eating out. No bean, nuts dairy, meat or grains.

Hi Joanna – We’re so sorry, we don’t currently have any gluten-free pasta available, but are always trying to look into new options, so thank you for your suggestion. We hope you can enjoy other options along our salad bar.

My wife and I are vegan. We love your restaurant. One thing that could make it better for vegans, vegetarians and people who want low fat, would be leave the cheese off many of your dishes, like the pasta and salads, and have it available for people to put it on separately. That would make everybody happy.
One other thing that would make vegans happy would be to leave the eggs out of some of your deserts. Currently I think only the cranberry muffins and the lava cake are egg free, and they are not always available. Thank you.
Sincerely, Jerry Barber

Hi,

I am just curious why the split pea soup is only listed as being vegetarian…. Is there cream in it?

Same question about the Asian Ginger Broth?

How come the vegan soups are only available in Texas? :( Are there currently no vegan soups in California? And the baja bean salad is the only vegan salad available until the second half of the month? Also the vegetarian marinara is not listed as vegan. Does it contain egg? And what about the sourdough bread?

Hi Tish – You can find a full list of ingredients for any menu item at any store location, just ask a manager :) We try and offer dishes to please everyone’s tastes and dietary restrictions in all of our locations, however, it is often hard to fit it all on the bar! Thank you for your feedback.

Why would you take away Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup from Lemon Month?? It was my favorite and I specifically visit your restaurants for it every year only to be disappointed this year :(

I love the idea of having the Asian ginger broth, the broth mix-ins, stir fried veggies, and udon noodles where you can create your own dish. I think this concept should be incorporated more often (say with a vegetarian tortilla soup broth, mix-ins for it, fajita style veggies, tortilla strips or perhaps more Italian inspired with a tomato based broth, mix-ins, small sea shell shaped pasta, and Italian prepared veggies). I like how the Asian broth was a vegetarian dish I could run with and would love to see the same concept again. Please make the broth, udon noodles, and stir fried veggies a regular on the menu! It was so good.
Thank you for making the wonton happiness vegetarian! Keep on making more vegetarian options!

Hi I’m so looking forward to have some of your gluten free coconut muffins. But first I like to know if there’s any corn in them or if you could provide a list of ingredients it would be awesome. Since I have different allergies. Thank you.

Hi! The main ingredients for these muffins are Gluten Free flour, egg, coconut milk, and canola oil. For a more detailed list, please feel free to ask a manager at any location who will have the list :)

I just received an email about the cream of asparagus soup. I was wondering if it was gluten free?

Hi Christina – We’re sorry, this soup is not gluten-free.

Hi! Love your GF choices. Is there any thought to trying a Spaghetti Squash for a GF pasta dish? or maybe a Rice Stir fry in place of a pasta on occaission?
Love the GF coconut muffins. I hope you try more varieties. :)
oh… need some more GF soups.
thanks!!!
