The staff is so great here. They make my rolls in a separate area so there is no cross contamination with sesame. They are very aware of allergies and the staff knows all ingredients in all their dishes. Super consistent. Ordered from here once a week!
The Chateau Restaurant Waltham
LOVE! If you do takeout they put a sticker on top of your order that says “this order is safe from” and then they check off the allergen boxes. I thought that was amazing and showed they were putting in extra steps to take care of those with food allergies or intolerances.
They take food allergies seriously and have great breakfast options. There is a lot of dairy in the menu though, so I would be careful if you have a serious dairy allergy.
Organized a large party here. They were very accommodating with the allergies and we planned an entire nut free menu. Everyone loved the food!
The Prime Deli + Cafe
They always change their gloves when handling my food. I have never ordered anything fried, but their bread has been safe for me in the past. They’re very helpful in providing labels for anything you order.
