In this installment of our Best of Gluten Free in Paris series, we satisfy your sweet tooth with a selection of sugary sweet gluten free spots. A trip to Paris without indulging in a pastry, tarte, or gateau, is hardly a trip to Paris. But for those with diets that don’t necessarily allow for all that flaky crust it can be hard to find a place to get your sweet treat fix.

Luckily, Paris has a growing number of options for those who want to skip the gluten but keep their sweets. Here are a few of our favorite places to pop in for dessert or an afternoon snack:

Sitron serves up pastry goodness with all the bells and whistles- chocolate ganache, whipped cream, pâte feuilletéé– we love when it comes to eating dessert in France. Foucade Paris makes gluten free spins on classic French desserts, including a zesty tarte au citron and selection of beautiful éclairs.
