Are you gluten-free (or san gluten, as the French would say)? Do not let it stop you from going on an adventure! I know that traveling with this allergy/sensitivity can be daunting. Some travel destinations are friendlier toward food allergies than others, and thankfully Paris definitely makes the list of the friendly destinations. I was pleasantly surprised at how many options I had on my trip to Paris last fall. You will find that the go-to gluten-free flour in Paris is buckwheat flour (although you can find other options as well).

Before traveling to Paris last year, I did my research (like I always do!). Traveling with food allergies does not need to be stressful, and researching safe options before you go can makes for much more relaxing meal times while on your trip. Cooking your own food is always a great option (if you book lodging with your own kitchen), but most people want to experience local cuisine at least part of the time (or maybe the entire time!). You can check out my top 5 tips for traveling internationally here for my advice on navigating this whole food allergy thing while you are away from home.
When doing your own research, I suggest using Google Translate. While the translations usually aren’t perfect, it does a pretty good job at translating French websites into English. This will come in handy as you look at their menus, hours, etc.
I’m excited to share my list of 10 places to eat gluten-free in Paris. I’ve included a mixture of sit-down restaurants, places to grab a to-go meal, and bakeries. For your convenience, I’ve included their hours and address. Be sure to double-check this info before you embark on your journey! Also, keep in mind that many restaurants closed their doors in between meals, so it is important to schedule your meal times so you don’t go hungry (especially if you have food allergies and don’t have the option to simply pick-up whatever you can find in a hurry.)

When doing my own research before my trip to Paris, I came across several suggestions online for restaurants that have since closed down. I will do my best to keep this list updated and current, but please feel free to let me know in the comments if you’ve heard that a place is no longer open (or if you have another place to suggest!). I would love to add and take away from this list as needed!
