Gluten Free in Paris

Paris has become a haven for gluten-free food enthusiasts. While awareness around coeliac disease and cross-contamination may not be perfect in every restaurant, the city boasts numerous dedicated gluten-free establishments, making it a delightful destination for travelers with dietary restrictions.

In terms of bakeries, it's fantastic. You could spend a whole weekend taking yourself on a gluten free bakery tour - in fact, I did this myself and highly recommend it! 

Tips for Your Gluten-Free Adventure

  1. Visit Early for the Best Selection: Like anywhere, Parisian bakeries offer the widest selection in the morning. Head out early to stock up on delicious treats for the day. Many bakeries, especially Copains, also provide beautiful sandwiches and baguettes to take away.

  2. Check Opening Times: Always verify opening hours before planning your visit. Some places may be closed on Mondays, and hours can vary, particularly during the summer months.
     

With these tips in mind, your gluten-free culinary journey through Paris will be both enjoyable and delicious. Bon appétit!
