Chateau Chiswick

Chiswick

While this cafe spot isn't 100% gluten free, and not strictly a bakery either - Chateau Chiswick is my number one spot for patisserie in London. In the entrance, there is an array of stunning cakes and patisserie that you will be so pleased to know is mostly gluten free (bar a couple with oreos). This is also a lovely spot for brunch!
