Wondering where to find a gluten free bakery or restaurant in Paris? Search no more! Here is a list of options you can find in my beautiful hometown.
If you've been following me for some time, you probably already know that I'm a born and raised Parisian who is still currently living there. I'm also a gluten free recipe creator and Certified gluten free practitioner. So, between publishing 2 gluten free recipes, I thought it totally made sense to give you some tips about eating gluten free in Paris.

Considering that most bakeries and restaurants listed here don't have their websites available in English, I’ve decided to only include in this guide places that are 100% gluten free to minimize the risk of confusing everyone and risk a cross contamination exposure.
If you are not celiac nor highly sensitive to gluten (only mildly) and won't get sick because of cross contamination, you can go to almost any restaurant. You will easily find main courses that are naturally gluten free. For example, you could have grilled meat or fish with vegetables or a large mixed salad (just make sure they don't include croutons, toasted bread or pasta). But you probably won't be able to eat any desserts, as most French desserts contain gluten.
This guide might seem a little shorter than other guides you might have seen elsewhere. The reason for that is not that I've been lazy in my research but unfortunately, a lot of gluten free places have closed in the past few years. So this is an updated list and I will try to update it regularly.
Though, the best thing to do is to make sure that the place is open before going there. So, please check their websites before going. I have given you all the website links to do so.

Gluten free crepes in Paris
I'm sorry, I haven't found any 100% gluten free crepe restaurants in Paris. So, bad news for you, if you are celiac, there are no gluten free crepe options available for you as there will be cross contaminations in "regular" creperies.
Although, if you are not celiac nor highly gluten sensitive and won't get sick because of cross contamination, you can go to a regular creperie and have a savory crepe (called "galette de sarrasin" which means buckwheat crepe).
Traditional galettes de sarrasin are made with buckwheat flour which is naturally gluten free. So, if you are going to a traditional Bretonne crêperie (crepe restaurant from Brittany) it should be naturally gluten free. Make sure to check that with the restaurant before sitting down and ordering.
You will find a ton of Breton crepe restaurants in the Breton district of Paris which is situated near the Montparnasse train station. So just go have a look at "rue du Montparnasse" and you will for sure, find a good crepe restaurant that serves (cross contaminated) gluten free savory crepes. Please note, that their sweet crepes won't be gluten free. So unfortunately there won't be any dessert for you, unless you ask for a buckwheat galette with a sweet topping (I have yet to try that).
Another possibility though, would be to go to La Crème de Paris (4, rue du Faubourg Montmartre 75009 Paris) where they serve both sweet and savory crepes that are gluten free but also cross contaminated, so not celiac friendly either.
Gluten free in French supermarkets
The French association called AFDIAG works actively at protecting people with gluten intolerance. Their logo below is indicative that a product has less than 20ppm of gluten, and is thus safe for celiacs.
All of the supermarkets (Monoprix, Carrefour, A2Pas, Franprix...) have a large choice of gluten-free products.
When shopping, look for “sans gluten” which means gluten free in French.
Gluten free cookies, snacks and cereals will often be grouped together in a dedicated section for gluten free products. Look for brands like Allergo, Gerblé, Jardin Bio, Genius, Bjorg, Schär, or the supermarket own brand.
Whereas gluten free pasta will often be in the general pasta area. You can easily identify them with "sans gluten" or "senza glutine" (in Italian) written in big letters on the package.
If you feel more adventurous, you can also find "regular" products that don't contain any gluten. But you will need to check the ingredients. Luckily for you, all the most common allergens are written out in bold letters in the ingredient list. Look for “gluten”, “blé” (wheat) , “orge” (barley), or “seigle” (rye).
Organic grocery stores (like Naturalia, Bio c' bon, Biocoop...) offer extensive amounts of gluten free products. Look for brands like Valpibio and Ma vie sans gluten (for breads, cookies, pasta, breakfast cereals and much more), Le Pain des fleurs (for all kinds of gluten free crackers), Biobleud (for a premade gluten free pizza crust, pie crust or puff pastry in the refrigerated area)... Yes, that's pretty amazing. But watch out, gluten free AND organic = super expensive. That's why, I don't buy all my gluten free groceries in organic stores.
