Eating good quality gluten free food, mainly in Edinburgh



Finding really good gluten free is not easy, until now. A very kind and thoughtful friend bought me these little rolls for dinner this weekend.  They were bought from a new cafe which has opened in Marchmont called Cobbs. And it is definitely worth a detour to buy them.

While I have not visited myself yet, I have it in my sights. Cobbs is served by its own bakery based in a popular haunt of mine, Drumnadrochit.  With a table of cakes, quite a few of which I understand are gluten free, the cafe seems deserving of its own review sometime soon…


Where some gluten free bread has a core grittiness and a tendency to stick around the teeth, these little beauties are really and genuinely hard to distinguish from ‘normal’ bread.  There is no grittiness, they taste good and while there is a tiny bit of sticking right at the end of eating the roll, it really is hardly noticeable.  So I should happily give these the accolade of the best gluten free bread I have eaten so far!

Make the effort to buy some – you won’t be sorry.  As the freshness goes they are good toasted too.
