Café Breizh
Breton, Paris View On Map
Is an authentic Bretagne café and while there were no seats at the café available for us, we ate at the Deli next door. All savoury crêpes are made with buckwheat and once we explained our son's dietary needs, they also made a sweet buckwheat crêpe for him. You can also buy a pack of 6 buckwheat crêpes to take away and these became a staple for breakfasts at our apartment. Crêperies became a popular eating venue for our two teenage sons.

Buffalo Grill

In August 2013 we stayed at the Campanile in Metz (Est Technopole). Very limited choice of g/f on the menu at Campanile, so we walked up the road to the Buffalo Grill, an amusing French interpretation of a Texan steak house. The staff there were clued-up about g/f and we had a lovely meal.

Bio Sphere Café
8th Arr, Paris View On Map
All the information on the internet suggests that it is worth booking a table before you come as it gets busy. So I did. However we got here about 30 minutes before our booking time and the place was empty. So I am not sure if it gets busier later or we came very early. Either way I would book because it would be awful to get here and be unable to get a table. This place is small but that should not put you off. If anything I guess that adds to the charm of being served by the friendly owner Sylvie.

The great thing about here is they have all the things on the menu that a coeliac would normally be starved off in Paris, I'm talking; pasta, pizza, sandwiches, quiche, baguette and lots of cakes! The baguettes have to be reserved in advance so if you are planning on coming here definitely ask about them when you phone up. We opted for Galettes. Both the cakes tasted absolutely fantastic. They tasted real which just goes to show that if you put the time and energy into things you can achieve great results.

I really loved this place it was so nice to eat in an entirely gluten free environment which I doubt many of us actually do. There was attention to detail. All in all it was a very pleasant experience. Would I go back? Absolutely!

Café Breizh
Breton, Paris View On Map
This is a busy little Breton café serving Breton specialities of Galettes. By this I mean proper buckwheat pancakes made with no other flour. This café is seriously busy at lunchtimes and if I had been more organised I would have booked a table, however being on holiday and not really sure of where we were going to be I didn't do this. Anyway we did go here and while they were full to the brim I was able to get something to take away from their delicatessen next door which was fantastic. I opted for a galette filled with smoked salmon and salad which actually was presented like a wrap which was great as I wasn't in the mood for anything too heavy. Actually this was really good as it meant we could pick up something for me, then pick up something gluten loaded for MrG and have a picnic outside Le Centre Pompidou. Would I go back? Absolutely, I definitely would like to eat in next time!

Vivienne, Paris View On Map
In Paris there was one exclusively gluten free restaurant, called NoGlu. It was really cool to be able to pick anything off the menu without any hesitation. The restauarant has only been in operation for 7 months, and there were many delicious meals on the menu, including items such as a quinoa salad, salmon with a potato dish, and a Parisian club sandwich - which consisted of procuitto, swiss cheese and caramelized onions...it was declicious. They also had cookies, muffins, and other pastries on their menu - I was much too full to indulge though. I should also mention that the bread is homemade and they even bring a gluten free bread basket, it was so fun!

Mon Histoire dans l'assiet
Lyon, Rhône-Alpes View On Map
Mon Histoire dans l'assiet which translates into My Story on a Plate is an ambitious concept in Lyon, France's gastronomical capital. All of their dishes are free of 11 of the top allergens (gluten, eggs, lactose, peanuts, pitted fruits, soya, mustard, seafood, celery, sesame and lupin beans). In addition it also emphasizes fresh and local food. Although I was skeptical about how it would taste, I really enjoyed all my dishes, as did my fellow dining companions who didn't suffer from food allergies. Full Review

Sofitel La Defense
La Defense, Paris View On Map
For various reasons we chose to stay at the Sofitel La Defense. Before going to Paris we emailed and asked for gluten free breakfast items and got no response (in a kind of usual hotel fashion). Anyway being that it was France, I decided not to expect anything. When we got to breakfast the next morning, I went off into my usual coeliac hotel survival mode to forage for anything suitable from the breakfast items. I found: cheese, fruit, yoghurt, meats, fresh sauteed potatoes, scrambled eggs from egg (some hotels have a nasty habit of adding flour when making scrambled egg: WHY?), hot aubergine and courgettes cooked in a pot with fresh herbs. Needless to say I was content. It was only when Mr G got up to go to the bread section he noticed at his eye line height (just short of six foot above ground level) well above the gluten bread a plate of clearly labelled "pain sans gluten"! You could have knocked me down with a feather I was more than surprised. Things are most definitely changing in Paris. The bread was actually very good. It reminded me a lot of the Schar but it was a whole loaf rather than just a section.

Helmut Newcake
10th Arr, Paris View On Map
Helmut Newcake is a coeliac's heaven! You're greeted with a display of lots of delicate looking pastries, normally a torturous sight, but in Helmut Newcake, there's one difference, they're totally gluten free! It's a fantastic place which also sells gluten free products if you're planning on doing any cooking. The cakes were simply divine, so good that we had to buy some for the Eurostar home!
