Additional Information

Our chefs are the best resource for real time information about products and ingredients used in a specific dish that day.

For our guests with celiac disease or other gluten intolerances, we offer menu items that have been prepared without gluten-containing ingredients. To identify these options, look for items labeled “↓g”. These menus items are prepared using ingredients that do not contain gluten and steps are taken to manage the risk of cross-contact, but are prepared in an open kitchen environment. Please note that our menu items are not guaranteed gluten-free, as defined by the FDA, because we prepare and handle products containing gluten in our kitchen. Please speak with a manager or chef for café specific questions.

Self-Serve Items

2. We provide access to ingredient information for self-serve* items. *Self-serve - Meals that are served buffet-style in a dining hall. These are typically high risk for cross-contact and are best avoided by diners with food allergies.

Made-To-Order Areas

3. We have procedures in place to lower the risk of cross-contact in made-to-order areas.

Made-to-order areas
[Yes, in some stations]
Specific areas

Asian-Style Stations: peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, and soy are often integral ingredients at this station.

Be cautious or avoid self-serve stations in any restaurant environment. Areas such as salad bars, condiment stations, and buffets where other diners serve themselves are high risk for cross-contact. To choose from these areas, ask the restaurant to serve you a portion directly from the kitchen.  

Additional information

While our culinary teams receive significant training about food allergens, please keep in mind that our dishes are prepared in open kitchens and the top eight most common allergens are present in all Bon Appétit cafés.
