Jansana’s Delightful Pastries

A year and a half ago, we moved outside the city limits to a small town near Montserrat. Its about a 40 minute drive into Barcelona, so needless to say, we don’t get out to explore the latest and greatest GF options on a weekly basis.  We do however, try to visit places when we…

Local Mecca for Gluten-Free Baked Treats

At last! Another dedicated gluten-free bakery to add to this blog! It feels like its been ages since a discovery like this has happened to us here at Gluten Free BCN. So far, most places have been quite a hike to get to, and with varied amounts of satisfaction for our wallets and tastebuds. Now…

Gluten Free in the Raval – Forn Boix

As I wander the winding cobbled alleyways of Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, I often pop into random bakeries and cafes to see what they offer. Sometimes I will excitedly see a sign claiming “Gluten-Free” products inside, but am usually disappointed by the lack of actual goods. Recently, however, I was delighted to find a quaint little…

UPDATED – Baci d’Angelo – Patisserie in Clot

Located in the Clot neighborhood, just 2 blocks from the Metro station that bears the same name, is an interesting little cafe called Baci d’ Angelo. Open for a little over a year now, this family run business is starting to make a name for itself among the Coeliac community. As owner Filippo described, they did not…

UPDATED-SYNGLUTEN, Baked Goods to Take Away

As you may have noticed by the lack of information about gluten-free bakeries in Barcelona, well, it’s because they are hard to come by.  In my recent searching, I did, however, come across a little place in the Sants neighborhood that looked very promising.  Its website boasted that they make the best fresh-baked bread in…

Supermarket Showdown

Not all grocery stores are the same, we all know that.  This is especially so for those of us who are looking for gluten-free products in Barcelona. Sometimes I find myself having to shop at 3-4 different stores to get all of the things I need, because admittedly, I am picky about what I eat….

Spice Cafe: I Want Cake!

Many years ago, during my time as a food service technician, a phrase was said to me that I have since uploaded into my permanent usage file.  I came home from work bearing a huge slice of multi-layered Red Velvet cake on an open plate.  Sitting in the living room were some friends of my…

Dietetica Gloria – Dedicated GF Shop!

I recently discovered an amazing shop just a few blocks north of Sants train station that caters to the dietarily restricted such as myself. In general, the different gluten-free options available at most of the Barcelona supermarkets are quite underwhelming, so this place is likely to breathe a bit of excitement into your diet. Its…

Reykjavic Bakery – Glutie But Goodie

For my birthday,  my coworker brought me a delicious slice of gluten-free cake.  It was made mostly from poppy seeds and had the most interesting, slightly crunchy, uber-moist texture.  Even though drizzled with a basic sugar icing, the cake was the perfect amount of sweet, not over the top.  It tasted natural and healthy.  Of…

UPDATE: A Bakery Just For Us!?!?

As many of you have probably noticed, Barcelona is not overflowing with restaurants that cater specifically to the GF Movement.   Sure the grocery stores have a nice selection of processed GF products, but what people really want is food with a homemade feel.  I was really excited when I stumbled across a 100% gluten-free…
