Gluten Free Prague

Let’s explore Gluten Free Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic and nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” known for its Old Town Square, cheap beer, beautiful baroque buildings, Gothic churches, a famous bridge and the medieval Astronomical Clock! Looking into travel destinations for a three day break away, my boyfriend and I finally came to the decision that Prague would be a good choice. We booked quite last minute, a few weeks before, so I was very excited to see what Prague would behold! As a coeliac blogger, I thought it was a must to document all my travels as well as gluten free finds! With our bags packed, my gluten free snacks, my passport and my trusty gluten free translation card, we were on our way!

After visiting Turkey and Rhodes last year, I did a lot of research for Gluten Free Prague, as I really didn’t know what to expect and was a little anxious about finding food that was coeliac friendly, however I didn’t need to be as I found a great deal of really nice places to eat, right on our doorstep. Everyone was extremely friendly and spoke English very well, but I would still advise anyone to use a gluten free translation app or print one off like I did.

Where we stayed

We stayed in the Dominican hotel which is situated in the old town, on the bustling cobblestone streets and next to the medieval clock. It’s around 30 minutes away from the airport. We took an Uber to get there and taxi back, but there are trains and trams that are easily accessible for travelling to the airport. I am glad we chose this area, as it was really lovely walking around the old town, with all the markets and the smell of food everywhere, plus it was quiet. Our room was number 303, and it was extremely comfortable, with a large bed and walk in wardrobe. Breakfast the second time we visited wan’t great (most likely due to staff cuts after the pandemic), so I would recommend going out for breakfast if you can.

Svejk Restaurant U Karla 2024 Update-This restaurant shut down in 2020

We enjoyed traditional sausages, dumplings, bread and ribs. For dessert we opted for the delicious apple strudel. The currency for Prague is Czech Koruna and 100 CZK is roughly £3, which was a little confusing to me at first! For our meals and drinks it came to 885.00 CZK which is 38.50 Euros or £33 so for anyone that wants the traditional experience with cheap beer, I would recommend this place!

Tri Cafe 2024 update-This cafe is now closed! 

I found a large list of bakeries and cafes before heading to Prague. Some of the bakeries that I wanted to visit weren’t open over the weekend, which was a shame, but the Tri Café was conveniently located near to our hotel, so we checked it out and I was pleased to see that there were a number of gluten free options. We enjoyed the chocolate cake and the walnut cake with a nice cup of tea (what else?!)

Good Food Bakery

You cannot go to Prague and not enjoy some of the sweet treats available. Chimney cakes were everywhere and we found the Good Food Bakery situated in the Old Town that offered gluten free chimney cakes! It tastes like a doughnut and has a funnel shape with the ice cream inside. The dough is wrapped around a stick that is grilled and there were lots of different toppings and flavours to choose from. The gluten free options were given to us in a cup and they were absolutely divine! You need to try them!

Prague Castle Lobkowicz Palace Cafe

The Prague Castle Lobkowicz Palace Café was another good choice to try out some sweet treats! We enjoyed the delicious black forest gateau cake as well as taking in the breath-taking view of Prague! Just gorgeous!

Lavande-Update 2024 this restaurant is now closed!

The restaurant Lavande was a little further out from our hotel, as it is located by the Palacky Bridge on the corner of Janackovo nabrezi and Lidicka street. I opted for a beef burger with a marmalade sauce and cheddar with extremely moreish baked chips and a cocktail sauce. The menu here includes dairy free options as well! For our meals and beverages, we paid 778.00 CZK which is 35.40 Euros or £30 which I thought was very good compared to London prices.

Alriso restaurant was the final and most expensive out of all the places we visited. The menu is entirely gluten free, as rice flour is used in all the cooking, and is a 4 minute walk from the Dominican hotel. The price of our Bruschetta starter, mains and drinks came to a total of 1620.00 CZK which is around £55. The food was nice, and I did enjoy the cosy atmosphere and elegant desserts, although I wasn’t a huge fan of the risotto. On our second trip we chose pasta dishes. Very tasty!

The Street

After walking over 20,000 steps or so almost every day in Prague, you most definitely will want a chance to tuck into a tasty burger. We found The Street (Prague 1 and Prague 2). The street burgers staff can swap the bun to a gluten free bun and the chips were gluten free too. I opted for the burger with bacon jam, cheddar cheese, caramelized onion, bacon, rucola and tomatoes.

Den Noc Livance Pancakes

We ended the trip in style with some delicious pancakes from Den Noc Livance pancakes. I had loads of options to choose from even though I had to wait a little longer for the preparation of the pancakes but it was definitely worth the wait!
