12 of the best gluten-free restaurants in Montreal

Sep 9 2021, 9:37 am

A gluten-free diet has become quite prominent over the past decade-plus. The diet consists of excluding foods that contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).

If you have an intolerance, an allergy, or your diet recommends cutting out gluten entirely, there’s a wide range of restaurants in Montreal that have gluten-free menus and meals.

And we’re talking all the good stuff. From pizza, pasta, sushi, cookies, and more, here are some notable gluten-free spots across Montreal.
