    One of the best gluten free menus. Their homemade gluten free bread is awesome - getting to order a GF grilled cheese out is something I've missed! The Bahn Mi is also great w/ the GF bread!

    The best grilled cheese ever! Every time I come I think I'll try something different but then end up getting the grilled cheese anyway because I love it so much!

    Order the cook brie with sweet walnuts and fruit - you will be glad you did even if you don't like Brie… Even if you don't like cheese… Even don't like food...

    Their gluten free menu is the best! They now offer gluten free bread on their sandwiches. They also use it for their flatbreads, which are awesome.

    We came in at 10:30 on the 4th of July. We sat at a table, we had asked if it was ok, and we waited. After about 20 minutes of watching the wait staff and the manager just stare at us. We got fed up.

    Homegrown used to be a lot of fun. I like the food and beer selection but the bands they have play there really suck.

    Bring some air freshener as this place smells like a room of gutter punks after an exploited show.
