After discovering cocktails and coffees, Paris is finally discovering gluten-free products and is starting to make them well.
I used to avoid gluten-free bread, simply because of the very dull taste but I have to say that at Chambelland, they know how to make it right, which is good news.
The location is also very charming on a little square in a neighbourhood which is more like a village rather than a big city. I definitely will come back around the summer to enjoy the large terrace.
If you wander what they serve in here, the specialty is the bread, made with rice flour and buckwheat flour. They also make some delicious pastries, mostly tarts. The lemon meringue tart was divine !
This is the kind of place where you can come for breakfast, coffee or tea, or even lunch. It is spacious and bright, with a kind of contemporary feel, surrounded with glass, wooden and vintage furniture. This is easily the kind of place where you can sit down for hours and simply forget the time.
And those guys must be doing it quite right when you find out that they supply their bread to well-known places such as the Plaza Athenee’s restaurant run by the famous Alain Ducasse.
The address :
Chambelland, 14 rue Ternaux, 75011 Paris
