l'autre boulangede L’Autre Boulange

This boulangerie featuring a wide span of breads, cakes, pastries, and desserts specializes in gluten-free bread!  I got the quinoa loaf and it was supremely moist on the inside (cooked, just moist), and crunchy on the outside.  Really good bread and a very welcoming staff.  Two locations.

Thank goodness they don’t have glue in their food.  (So that’s why I didn’t become a standup comedian.)  (Amongst other reasons.)  NOGLU is a charming fully gluten-free restaurant which is near impossible to find in this city.  The owner is a delightful French woman with an American pastry chef who concocts very convincing breads, pastries, and normally off-limits delights.  A must-try for someone with a gluten intolerance living in the city of lights.

Gluten-free baguettes in a café in Paris?  Gluten-free eclairs?!  A full organic and gluten-free menu featuring pizza, crepes, sandwiches, and pastry… with many lactose-free options?  You had me at, well, you have me.  So did the owner, Sylvie.  She is clearly very passionate about everything she makes and runs (she even serves the food she makes) and if she has a second, is really worth chatting to.  Super friendly, and very talented.

While the name would normally have warded me off, as even though I obviously monitor what I eat due to food allergies and sensitivities, I do not, and hopefully will never, consider myself “dieting”.  However, it’s a jolly good thing I did not see the name of this restaurant walking in, and would never have given it this title, as it is a joy to behold.  The bright colors inside match the fragrant interior of the tiny restaurant boasting a full menu of organic and gluten-free menu items, as well as a tiny store filled full of organic and gluten-free products and supplies.  A+!

EKXi ParisEKXi

EKXi is a well-priced (as in not expensive) chain in Paris specializing on cafe-style delicious organic food items, ranging from coffee to main plates to desserts to salads, and everything is marked as either containing, or not containing, gluten.  There are several locations, including the airport, and this one is close to Opera.

All organic, vegetarian, really, really flavorful stuff.  This site is not about being “organic”, but the quality of these ingredients is worth mentioning, as well as the creativity of their seasoning!  Many gluten-free and dairy-free options.  For those with nut allergies, just ask.  The cooks were very knowledgeable about their products (which is surprisingly rare) and helped me steer clear of the anaphylaxis-inducing dishes.  Brunch was $25 all-you-can-eat with juice and coffee and tea included.  A marvel!

Yup.  It’s got beer.  Good gluten-free beer.  And they’re open until 3 a.m.  Soooo…. yeah.

    Visited Le Comptoir Gana today and they don’t have any gluten-free dishes/breads/cakes. It would be worth taking off your list.
