Gluten-Free in Paris Part 1: Paris’ Best Gluten-Free Bakeries

by Emily Dilling

Paris has seen a boom in gluten-free dining options over the past few years. What started as a specialty niche in a few select bakeries and restaurants is now becoming a common sight in the city, with non-gluten options popping up in pastry shops and on lunch menus across the capital. 

From gluten-free bread to granola, biscuits to muffins, here are some of the best gluten-free bakeries in Paris

Naturalia

With so many gluten-free options in Paris, it can be hard to know where to start. In order to help you find the best of gluten-free in Paris, we’ve put together a series of posts that round up the best GF addresses in the city. From pizza to gluten-free waffle shops, organic to vegan, we’ve got the perfect gluten free spot for every appetite. We’re kicking of the series with a classic: Paris’ best gluten-free bakeries.

The first wave of gluten-free addresses in Paris was made up mostly of bakeries that were either 100% gluten-free or had gluten-free options. Natural grocery stores, like Naturalia, were also early to hop on the bandwagon. These shops remain solid spots to grab a loaf of gluten-free goodness, but if you want to go to the source of the GF movement in Paris, here are some places to start.

First-wave gluten-free addresses have now become institutions and remain go-to spots for the gluten intolerant. Boulangerie Chambelland was one of the first to elevate gluten-free bread and baked goods to an art. Their discreet presentation of home-baked goods, made using artisanal milled rice flour, shows that the team is more concerned with making high-quality products then cashing in on a trend.
