Nowadays, everyone knows someone who is living with food allergies. Whether it’s gluten, nuts, milk, or anything else, finding delicious food that is allergen free is not easy.. unless you know where to go!
1. Petit Lapin
Petit Lapin is an adorable little bakery in Westmount free of the top allergens; peanuts, nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachio nuts and walnuts), sesame seeds, milk, eggs, seafood (fish, crustaceans and shellfish), soy, wheat and other gluten containing grain (barley , oats, rye , etc.). Owner Viviane Nguyen created Petit Lapin to cater to allergy burdened children like her own son. Nguyen’s personal experience gave her the motivation to create allergen free cakes and sweets perfectly suited for every tongue. There is no better place in Montreal to get a beautiful personalized allergen free cake than Petit Lapin– not to mention their delicious treats are also vegan! This adorable bakery has broken boundaries and crushed stereotypes, allergen-free and vegan cakes can and are most definitely both delicious and beautiful!

Gluten-free treats for all! This charming café is my ultimate favourite spot for gluten-free sweets; it’s painless pleasure for those who are gluten intolerant/sensitive and celiac.

This perfectly located café in Old Montreal even has salads, sandwiches, soups, lattes and specialty teas; all so good, you need to try it for yourself.
Sophie Sucrée is a beautiful vegan bakery that believes in suiting food philosophies and certain dietary restrictions, including food allergies such as gluten intolerances, eggs, etc. Their commitment to 100% plant based and often-organic products makes this bakery the hotspot for vegans and Montrealers with food allergies.
