I loved it here! It is a small place, where the chef is also the owner and he put effort into speaking English with me when asking about the ingredients that can contain gluten in crepes. The savory gallete are gluten free, made with buckwheat flour, however they can also make sweet ones on the buckwheat flour. It was delicious and the staff was very kind!
— No gluten-free information on the menu
Absolutely a gem for celiacs looking for a delicious and authentic meal. So delighted that they keep a naturally gluten free food safe for celiacs. And the food is incredibly good. Go!
Absolutely phenomenal food - both savory and sweet. There was cider as well, which has been difficult to find in Paris. And the waitstaff was amazing. Just sad I found it on my last day in town!
Staff is very knowledgable about the needs for Celiac’s. Crêpes (wheat based) are prepared separately from the galettes (buckwheat)
Staff is multi-lingual (as is the menu; French and English) and very friendly.
The galette menu isn’t as extensive as the crêpe menu, but they will make anything from the crêpe menu as a galette (though some of the more subtle flavors may be lost to the buckwheat, but it is a moot point for most of us on here as we can’t have the crêpes anyhow).
The desserts are under the crêpe menu, just remember to ask for it as a galette, though they will likely take the initiative and make it as a galette if you have already spoken to them about making sure your meal is “sans gluten”. If you are considering the Nutella, take their subtle hint and try something with the chestnut creme instead (not dairy cream, but creme as in ground to a paste and slightly sweetened). Not anywhere near as over bearing as the Nutella and pairs nicely with banana (Banana Juju Split on galette).
Only stomach pain is from eating too much (though I haven’t been glutened once this past week in France. The French seem to have a better handle on it than most restaurants in the US that supposedly cater to gluten free and Celiac’s. Just watch the fried foods, friers are typically shared and that isn’t on most people’s radars).
If you haven’t adjusted to the later French dinners and need something a little lighter and earlier, this is an excellent place to go. You can be eating by 6:45 if the place isn’t overly packed (common for lunch).
Had the galette surprise and the banana juju both with buckwheat flour galette. Important to ask on the dessert for buckwheat (sarrasin). Staff spoke many languages and was very knowledgeable. I had a great time.
Gluten free crepes are delicious and staff is very well informed. Definitely recommend.
Galettes ( salted crêpes ) made with 100% buckwheat flourPossibiliy to eat galettes with sweat ingredients : home made jam, home made salted butter caramel, home made chocolate sauce and chestnut cream if you ask it.A very sympathic restaurant near Galerie Lafayette and Musée Grévin open since 2012.
All galettes are 100% gluten free. Nice restaurant to taste.
