Eating good quality gluten free food, mainly in Edinburgh
Gluten Free Bruntsfield
Bruntsfield is a little spot of gluten free heaven in Edinburgh! Packed with delis, cafes, shops and coffee stops, Bruntsfield is a terrific place for an afternoon potter, with a slice of gluten free cake.
Further along you will come to a little shop called “Dig-in” – a community greengrocer. They sell proper veg and what many people do not realise is that they have a good wholefood section through at the back. Gluten free noodles, flours, biscuits and pasta is all there – so it is a good place to drop in and stock up.
And the gluten free Bruntsfield delights just keep coming. Close to Dig-in is the beautiful Chocolate Tree shop and cafe. Pretty much all their cakes are gluten free and they have a gorgeous selection: carrot cake, pear and almond tart and chocolate cheesecake were all on offer when I stopped by. The chocolate, as you might expect, is also really special and the people are super-friendly too.
It is not labelled gluten free, but I also highly recommend Christie’s butchers over the road – good quality food with traditional charm.
