Allergen Overview

Case Western Reserve University & Bon Appetit take food allergies seriously. However, please be aware that the eight most common food allergens are present in Bon Appétit cafés.

If you have a food allergy, it is important that you talk with the manager at your site about how to safely eat in our cafés. The managers and chefs are well-trained to help you with your food allergy needs. Since everything is cooked from scratch onsite, the chefs can tell you what ingredients are in a specific dish and make modifications if necessary.

We are dedicated to providing the freshest, highest quality selections that are planned specifically for each of our sites. As a result, Bon Appetit does not operate from a corporate recipe book. So if you have concerns, our chefs and/or registered dietitian will be glad to work with you on your personal choices. 

Made without Gluten-Containing Ingredients

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.

Fribley Oasis

Case Western Reserve University and Bon Appétit know how risky and potentially life threatening food allergies can be, which is why we feature the Oasis station at our Fribley Marche dining hall. The Oasis station is specifically designed to handle a wide variety of food allergies by offering chef specials and create-your-own options, prepared without the use of the top 8 allergens or gluten.
