Mason Dixon is fresh, healthy, and happens to be 100% gluten-free. Enjoy menu items like cinnamon rolls, avocado toast, and fried chicken biscuits. Also, try coffee items like my favorite earl grey latte with fresh lavender petals. Lunch menu items include vegan and dairy-free options, chicken and rice bowls, turkey Bahn mi, burgers, and salads that are all gluten-free and delicious. This is a celiac-safe facility.
Sit at a table and enjoy the bright natural light while you eat your beautiful and delicious food. These food items will make even the non ‘foodie’ want to let their camera "eat first."
Grab some frozen loaves and cinnamon rolls to bring home for later from the grab-and-go coolers.
