GF eating in Paris isn’t limited to just loaves of bread—it’s possible to enjoy a whole meal sans gluten if you know where to go! These gluten-free restaurants can be reserved for your next lunch without any worries about off-limits menu items. 

One of the best gluten-free lunch spots in Paris is the Guinguette d'Angèle, for the organic herbal teas (left) and fresh vegetables (right).

La Guinguette d’Angèle is a great address for vegetarian and-gluten free lunch options, with fresh salads and homemade cookies standing out. 

One of the best places to go for a gluten-free lunch in Paris is Café Pinson in the Marais, and we love their vegetable soups (left) and fun décor like the hand-painted veggie figures on the window (right).

Café Pinson is a go-to for a gluten-free lunch, fresh-pressed juice, and laid-back environment. Bears and Raccoons is a perfect little GF sandwich spot.
