Destination: Prague

The Capital of the Czech Republic in the heart of Europe is a marvellous city, known for an abundance of inexpensive beer. As we recently discovered, it’s also a home of numerous gluten free restaurants and bakeries, plus grocery stores stocked with gluten free food and treats.

Babiččina spíž

Hradební 1044/14, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia

Little bakery and cafe that was opened just before the beginning of the pandemic and miraculously survived it. They have great baguettes and rolls, tasty cakes and cookies and delicious pizza/sandwiches. If we’re ever moving to Prague, we’re definitely moving right next to this place.

Celiac plus points: 100% gluten free, great tasting food

We tried: Margarita pizza, baguette with egg and gouda, strudel, cookies, doughnut, muffin and various rolls and breads.

Vegan’s Prague

Nerudova 221, Malá Strana, 118 00 Praha 1, Czechia

Slightly pricier restaurant with just a few GF options, but if you happen to get a table on the terrace you get a gorgeous view of the Prague castle. I’m not a huge fan of raw cakes, but these were surprisingly tasty.

We tried: Spinach chimney, yellow curry, raw poppy seed strudel
