Condeco
, Chain View On Map
We stopped off at Condeco, what seemed like a chain of cafe lunch spots in Sweden. I asked whether they had any gluten-free options for lunch and the waitress let me know that they could make up a fresh gluten-free sandwich for me from scratch - I could just had to let them know what filling I wanted. I also asked whether they had any gluten-free cake and by now I had learnt that pretty much everywhere you go in Sweden, they do! I opted for what looked like a very tasty chocolate tart.

Coop

Coop's pretty much the same as ICA, except they don't have their own gluten free food yet. But you can find the same brands in Coop such as Semper, Crazy Bakers etc. Coop also have a good selection of both frozen and dry products.

Hemköp

Good selection, but usually not huge. You'll find the basic stuff here, both frozen and on a shelf.

ICA
, Nationwide View On Map
It's one of the best places to get gluten free groceries in Sweden. You can find the stuff on its own shelves and usually around the 'normal' bread or the baking stuff. ICA has several brands of gluten free food, such as Semper (who have their own gf oats), Crazy Bakers, Friends of Adam and their own. ICA generally have a large selection, both frozen and on a shelf, depending on the size of the store.

If you're in Karlstad, don't miss Norrstrands Pizzeria! It's a great pizza-place with superb pizza! I haven't eaten a better gluten free pizza yet.

TGI Friday's
, Chain View On Map
I've been to TGI Friday's in Östermalm in Stockholm (just by the Subway exit towards Stureplan) and I had the Jack Daniel's Burger. No problem getting it gluten free (without the bun) and the staff have been knowledgable every time. They also throw in some extra fries if you ask for it, instead of the bun! Great place to eat!

Espresso House
, Chain View On Map
Espresso House is a chain of Coffee Shops in Sweden and definitely in Stockholm one is never too far away. Like all coffee shops in our neutral world they offer numerous varieties of coffee and sandwiches and salad boxes. But where they stand out from the crowd is that they offer individual gluten free bread rolls that are wrapped up (so no cross contamination issues) which obviously means that a coeliac can have a filling lunch. Well, imagine my joy in finding gluten free bread in Stockholm in a chain coffee shop on more than one occasion in different locations!!! Fantastic doesn't even cover it!

Then to add to my general joy, they offered chocolate cheese cake which was gluten free! In fact they had two types of chocolate cheese cake, one with a biscuit base and one without which was set into a container so again cross contamination aware! I can't remember the last time I had chocolate cheese cake. I guess my point is where there is a will there is a way and there most definitely is a will in Stockholm!

McDonalds
, Chain View On Map
So we walked into McDonalds asked for a Hamburger on gluten free bread - yes no problem. That was it. It was a completely normal transaction. The burger took slightly longer to come because of the gluten free bread but honestly it couldn't have been a more mundane transaction! The bread was good. It tasted different to the bread in McDonald's Spain (obviously a different maker) but this one seemed slightly sturdier. It could just be to suit the local tastes. All in all a good experience. Here the bread comes in a special wrapper which says gluten free bread whereas in Spain it depends on where you are, sometimes it says special order or sometimes they will just stick the order print out to the box so that you know it is gluten free.

NB There is a McDonalds at Stockholm's Arlanda airport, there are very limited gluten free food options so if you are hungry before your flight head there. It is before security.

Pizza Hut
, Chain View On Map
I was really looking forward to going to Stockholm for many reasons and one of the more bizarre reasons was so that I could have a pizza made by someone else where I could choose my own toppings. The gluten free pizza is well sign posted on the Swedish Pizza Hut website which is always good to see before you reach somewhere. They state: "You can order any of our delicious pizzas with gluten free bottom in single size". We had just had lunch when we discovered a branch of Pizza Hut and then decided to go back later for dinner. Opening up the menu it was easy to find mention of the gluten free pizza base. The ordering process was again, very easy and complicated. It almost felt too easy. When the pizzas came mine (gf) was on a plate while MrG's was in the Pizza Hut pan. Apparently the gluten free pizza is the only pizza to be served on a plate so again easy to find the gluten free one. The fact that it is one size helped. The pizza was served uncut so this reduces the chance of cross contamination. The actual base was really good. It had a bit of crunch in the crust but then when you bit in it was still soft and doughy which is what American style pizza is all about. As far as I was concerned this hit the mark for me.

Under Kastanjen
Gamla Stan, Stockholm View On Map
This place is a hidden gem for tourists. There are no other word to describe it. Frankly if you have made the effort to go to Gamla Stan you absolutely must make the effort to find it. It is not far from the Royal Palace and worth the wander through the old cobbled streets to find it. By the time we got to Under Kastanjen we were quite soggy and cold. It was so nice to wander in and see a bottle of gluten free beer proudly displayed on the counter. There was no other signage of gluten free anything but frankly considering I don't drink it was fantastic that I recognised the brand and didn't think "this is the wrong place". In fact they are so committed to safe gluten free food here that they even prepare gluten free food in a separate kitchen so there are no issues regarding cross contamination!

We ordered one gluten cheese sandwich, which was taken from the front counter, and a gluten free cheese sandwich was prepared from within and brought out a short while afterwards. The bread was significantly different so there was no chance of any mix ups. It was smaller and had different seeds on top but it was all perfectly normal and yet the experience was in a sense abnormal! Afterwards we ordered some cake. It was so great to have a choice of which fresh gluten free cake to have knowing that I would be safe and not get sick afterwards.

Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel
Waterfront, Stockholm View On Map
It is fair to say I've had a fair few hotel breakfasts. Some have been a case of making do and some have been overwhelmingly fantastic. Yes that does a bit OTT. But look at this from my perspective, I can't function without breakfast. I just can't. I am quite prepared to pay over the odd prices for a hotel breakfast but where I'm bringing half the things it doesn't really make economic sense does it? Needless to say Stockholm was not a case of making do. Stockholm did breakfast! I asked for gluten free breakfast items when I made my booking at the hotel, so was pleased when on checking in they said it was no problem and to ask one of the waiters at breakfast. So I did expecting to be shown an area of the buffet which was suitable for me. I was more than surprised when she came back with a whole selection of different gluten free items from the kitchen. There was so much choice in what I was brought in addition in felt like someone with thought (or coeliac disease) had actually THOUGHT about what makes a good hotel breakfast for someone with dietary restrictions! My plates on both days were different but essentially contained cereal, crispbread, bread, something sweet, cinnamon bun, chocolate muffins. There is only one thing I can say, go to Stockholm!

McDonalds
, Chain View On Map
I'd heard through the gluten free community that McDonalds in Stockholm offered gluten free buns. I asked the server if she had any "of course", she replied as if it were the most normal request in the world. I ordered a Big Mac for old time's sake. The server told me it wouldn't be quite like a normal Big Mac as it would only have the top and bottom of the gluten free bun, and not the 3rd slice of bread in the middle. Perfect with me! She then said something which pleasantly surprised me; if I wanted ketchup I could either take it from the regular ketchup pump or I could have individual sachets. She said many Coeliacs preferred to take the individual sachets. I was impressed with this level of understanding but I can't help thinking this would not happen in the UK, even if gluten free buns were available.

So how did the Swedish gluten free Big Mac taste? Once I'd got over the sheer joy of being able to have something which has been off limits for many years, I decided that the gluten free bun was tasty. However after eating two-thirds of the bun it became too sweet for me. This isn't very surprising as I'm not normally a fan of white bread. The good thing was that the bun held its shape well and didn't crumble. Apart from the gluten free bun, the Big Mac tasted just as I remembered. The French fries are safe to eat because they are cooked in clean oil and not with gluten containing food items, thus avoiding cross contamination.

McDonalds may not be the height of gastronomy but sometimes it's good to do things, just because you can.

Friends Of Adam
Hornstull, Stockholm View On Map
The Friends of Adam bakery is located in Stockholm, in the Södermalm area. Their mission is to produce bread which is naturally gluten free. They use various flours including rice, teff, coconut and buckwheat, instead of wheat starch and use real (not powdered) eggs and real butter. In this way they seek to produce bread which is not only naturally gluten free but is also high in fibre and nutritious. They use two ovens (one of which is a stone oven) to bake their breads and undertake a lot of experimentation to come up with the best possible results. An extensive list of the stores Friends of Adam supplies both within Stockholm and throughout Sweden is available on the website here. Non-Swedish speakers can use Google translate. On chatting to the lovely lady in the bakery, she advised that Friends of Adam have just started supplying their gluten free bread to the Espresso House, a Swedish chain of coffee houses which seemed to be everywhere.

Grand Hotel Lund
Town Centre, Lund View On Map
We had travelled by train to the southern Swedish town of Lund in preparation to fly back from Copenhagen. I got these gluten free rolls: Slightly less exciting than the gluten free spread I enjoyed in Stockholm but nonetheless impressive the hotel was able to offer them at all. This just goes to prove the old adage: If you don't ask, you don't get (at least in Sweden)!

Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel
Waterfront, Stockholm View On Map
One thing I truly loved about our trip to Sweden was the gluten free breakfasts in our hotels. I'd emailed the hotels in advance to see if they could offer gluten free breakfasts. Yes, came the reply, just ask your waitress. So I did. Much as I love an omelette when I stay in hotels (why do they taste so good when someone else makes them?!), it was great to eat these gluten free treats. I absolutely loved the cinnamon buns and the cinnamon swirly things. The waitress told me the flat round bread was a type of Swedish tea cake. They were so tasty with jam, a cross between a muffin and sweet roll. Each day I took the extra items I couldn't eat back to the room for later. Well, you wouldn't want to waste such gluten free gorgeousness, would you?

Restaurang Slingerbulten
Gamla Stan, Stockholm View On Map
A brilliant Swedish restaurant with very knowledgeable staff. I was able to eat two courses (and could have had a dessert too, had I had room left!). I had a starter of Herring - pickled three ways - followed by Reindeer steak. The portions were very generous, the tastes amazing and service was very good. I would go back again. The food was enjoyed by all of the members of the Great Britain Minigolf Sport Team and Coaches on our visit.

Celine Italiensk Bistro
Hornsgatan, Stockholm View On Map
A great restaurant with very knowledgeable staff. We spotted a sign/blackboard advertising Gluten Free Pasta available, so headed in to ask what was available. I was able to choose from six items on the menu, which could be made with Gluten Free pasta. I had the Al Pollo Chicken Pasta dish - which was an enormous serving :-) The food was enjoyed by all of the members of the Great Britain Minigolf Sport Team on our visit. We also made a second visit to the Bistro before we left Stockholm and I opted for the All Manzoni, again it was delicious, and a very filling portion. All of the pasta dishes are cooked in the open kitchen area at the front of the Bistro and are served in very good time :-)
