Cakester Café
Old Town, Krakow View On Map
Cakester Café was another gem in the Old Town of Krakow, with a great menu with a lot of vegan, GF and sugar free options. There are GF waffles, pancakes, crepes, and toasted sandwiches. There's also a selection of cakes that changes daily, and a range of vegan icecream. With so much choice it was really difficult to choose what to try, but I went for the waffles with fresh fruit and coconut cream, which was a huge portion and really delicious!
On another visit I tried a GF toasted sandwich with goats cheese, spinach and pear (yum) and a slice of banoffee cake. The cake was great, but a little heavy - the cakester philosophy is no sugar and healthy food, so if you want decadence and indulgence these cakes might not be for you, but it was wonderful having so much choice, and I would really recommend Cakester as a fab destination for breakfast or lunch.

Cafe Mlynek
Kazimierz, Krakow View On Map
We tried Cafe Mlynek on the second night of our stay in Krakow. It's located south of the Old Town in Kazimierz, on a beautiful and lively square with some great bars, and, as everywhere in the city, gorgeous architecture. We chose it after a lot of googling as, although the menu is small, they had vegetarian options, and GF clearly marked on the menu. There's cosy seating inside and out, and we chose to sit outside as the ambience in the square was lovely.
To be fair, there wasn't great deal of choice for me, but they did have GF pasta and our server was very helpful at explaining what I could and couldn't have. I went for the spinach and ricotta pancakes, which were really delicious, and I had a mojito or two, which were the best I tried during my stay.
Overall I enjoyed Cafe Mlynek and would go again, but it might be a better destination for lunch, rather than an evening meal. Our dinner came to £12 each though, and was the cheapest of all the places we visited, so if you're looking for good food at a great price, this could be the one for you.

Nota Resto
Old Town, Krakow View On Map
This was one of my favourite restaurants that we visited while in Krakow, in the heart of the Old Town, Nota Resto is a high-end stylish restaurant serving modern European cuisine, and would be a good destination for a special occasion or a treat. The prices are still very reasonable for how great the food and service was, with two courses each, and a lot of Prosecco, our meal only came to £30 a head.
Gluten free options aren't marked on the menu, but our server was very helpful at explaining what I could have, and they keep gluten free pasta in the kitchen too. I went for pasta and pesto as my starter and a GF pizza (made from soy flour) as my main, with goats cheese, walnuts and pear - this might be the best GF pizza I've ever had!
I couldn't possibly have fit in a dessert, although there were GF options available too, if I ever go back to Krakow I'll have to give them a try! With lots of options for the non-coeliacs in the group too, I would definitely recommend Nota Resto.

Pod Baranem
Stradom, Krakow View On Map
Pod Baranem was the first restaurant we tried during out visit, as it was close to our Air BnB and had the most extensive menu of traditionally Polish gluten free and non-gluten free food. It's a large restaurant, with charming rustic decor and the service was great. We visited twice during our stay and didn't need to book, but this was during the week - at the weekend it might be worth making a reservation.
As mentioned, the menu is extensive with a lot of choice, and 5 pages just for gluten free food, including pierogi! The vegetarian GF section is smaller, with less choice, which isn't surprising as Polish food does seem to include a lot of meat.
I had savoury pancakes with cheese and spinach, and mozzarella and sundried tomato salad, which were both delicious, but there was also stuffed cabbage leaves and vegetable stew to choose from. The dessert menu was huge however, and although the raspberry cake I tried on the first night was great (and so pretty!) the creme brulee was incredible - it was worth the visit for that alone!
Both meals came to around £30 a head, for three courses each and drinks, which is incredibly reasonable for the standard of food and service. The non-coeliacs of the group also loved this restaurant, so it gets a big thumbs up from me, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Friendly Food
Taczaka, Poznan View On Map
Yesterday I did something I haven't done in 2 years and 8 months (give or take), I went to a restaurant and didn't use even ONE wet wipe! We went to a gluten free restaurant! And its really gluten free. It doesn't just have a great gluten free menu, it has a gluten free premises! No gluten allowed what so ever, everything is certified gluten free! The owner and the staff all know their stuff. I assume they are Celiacs themselves, but due to a language barrier I am not 100% sure.

We went a bit crazy I must admit. I mean, a whole menu where everyone can eat everything??!! Its like letting kids in to a sweet shop and saying, 'hey, you can have whatever you want!'. We had crepes with spinach and feta filling, crepes with turkey mince and tomato filling, crepes with chocolate and pizza and hot dogs, and some grainy thing that was some kind of kasha (looked a lot like quinoa) and it tasted so amazing I cant wait to go back and have it again. We had chicken with veggies and roasted veggies. Everything tasted awesome.

I'm not a food reviewer, but if you are a gluten free person and you ever find yourself in Poznan, you MUST visit Friendly Food.

Klimaty Poludnia
Stare Miasto, Krakow View On Map
The second night of our trip to Krakow we ate at Klimaty Poludnia, next to our hotel. The chef cooked a special meal so that it was gluten free and recommended their flourless chocolate cake for dessert. We had lunch there before flying home again on Friday

Pod Baranem Restauracja
Stare Miasto, Krakow View On Map
On Wed and Thurs night we ate at Pod Baranem, just along from our hotel and would recommend this place. It has a gf menu, fresh gf bread served before the meal, and a good choice of food and wine. Personally, I wouldn't choose their ravioli again as I found it too thick for my liking but it was filled with ground beef and tasted ok. Similarly, I prefer pancakes to be crepe rather than thick so had creme brulee the second night. Their fillet steak was superb.

Pod Baranem Restauracja
Stare Miasto, Krakow View On Map
Went as a party of 7, one of which was a coeliac. At the back of the menu is a whole gluten-free section; soups, main courses and deserts. The waiter even brought out gluten-free bread to start with. It's only one of two coeliac-friendly restaurants in Poland, the other of which is in Warsaw.

The menu is extensive, something for everyone! Be warned, it's more expensive than most in Krakow but for a three course dinner, coffee, wine, vodka at the end (recommended by the waiter, delicious way to end the meal) and also a decent tip, it worked out as approx €30 per person, still so cheap compared to Ireland/UK.

We didn't make a reservation but we might of been lucky to get a table, so phone ahead just in case.

The service was excellent. The waiter was incredible attentive and entertaining.

It's located about 15 minutes (walk) from the train station.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, quite a quiet atmosphere the night we went, but it was a Tuesday.

Highly recommend a visit, whether you're looking for a gluten-free dinner or not.
