On the occasion of my first Paris gluten free food tour organised for Francesca, an American blogger, smart and funny – have a look at her instagram page to see what I mean youngbrokenandglutenfree 😉 – I showed her one of my favourite gluten free coffee shops in Paris: Maison Bon.

Created by the beautiful and dynamic Chloé, Maison Bon opened at the heart of the 10th arrondissement of Paris: a neighbourhood that is becoming well known for its new restaurants and interesting food concepts.

Maison Bon is an organic, gluten free, vegetarian coffee shop where the only rule, as Chloé says, is pleasure!

With determination and study, she concocted by herself all the gluten free recipes that she proposes today: from her incredibly tasty savoury cakes – I know, I have a thing for them – to the daily menus and soups, from the to-die-for matcha cheese cake to the muffins, French financiers with almonds, cookies and carrot cake.

If you go, I also recommend you to taste the healthy bowls that are made fresh everyday. My fave ?!! The açai bowl ! Chloé’s recipe calls for cocoa powder, pear (that I personally prefer to the more traditional banana) and almond milk. I think that the cocoa in particular marries beautifully with the açai, giving it a quite unique taste.

I can really say – after the many things I tasted – that at Maison Bon everything is, well, « bon » !

For lunch, I chose the « Chili sin carne » aka a vegeterian chili with basmati rice, vegetables, sweet corn, avocado, and a slice of cake with feta cheese. I did like it.

And what about a gluten free matcha cookie with white chocolate chips ?!!? It’s so good! I do love matcha and you can really feel the taste of this powerful green powder in the cookie.

Another specialities at Maison Bon include the herbal infusions and teas. I did enjoy mine with lime and honey. It felt like a balm.

I did hope that I gave you enough good reasons to go to Maison Bon.

And if you pass by, please say hello to Chloé from me 🙂
