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.
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.

Celetná 598/11, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
A branch of Ambiente restaurants that specialises on pasta and risotto. They usually have only one GF pasta at a time to choose from, but it’s very well made. Many of the appetisers are naturally gluten free too.

We tried: Mixed platter of meat and cheese, spaghetti carbonara
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: Mixed appetiser platter, buddha bowl, raw cakes
Týnská ulička 1064/6, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
Intimate restaurant with friendly staff with only a handful GF options. They have a small and busy kitchen but they did their best to prepare our food safely and even suggested small tweaks to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination to minimum.
Celiac plus points: Knowledgeable about cross contamination. Prepare food safely, e.g. steamed spinach instead of pan fried.
We tried: Spinach chimney, yellow curry, raw poppy seed strudel
Lucemburská 1497/6, 130 00 Vinohrady, Czechia
