Rose Bakery is the place to be in Paris if you are nostalgic of organic English food, tea, porridge, and cakes. With two venues, one in the Marais and one at the Abesses, Rose Bakery proposes a daily menu of simple, fresh, tasty food with some gluten free options.
I was there on a Sunday morning hoping to get some of the brunch I heard so much talking about. Actually when I arrived the displaying of great food, especially cakes and tarts, was quite impressive and very tempting. For us gluten free eaters the options are quite a few but I was nonetheless grateful that there were some. I took a delicious vegetable mix with beetroot, baby carrots, quinoa, tofu, goat cheese, avocado, broccoli and mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and grains. Followed by a genmaicha tea wit roasted rice and a gluten free cake with polenta and lemon.
At Rose Bakery you can also shop a nice selection of the English brands that I love like Pukka tea herbs and Primrose’s Kitchen raw muesli with carrots and beetroot. They are both very good.
The only thing that left me a bit disappointed was the price: to me the food you eat, despite being good and fresh, does not justify the price you pay for it.
I hope that one day their famous granola can be also made of gluten free oats so that everybody could enjoy it!
