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.
