Manna Dew – 100% Gluten Free Patisserie in London

There’s a new gluten free patisserie in town. I say new – Manna Dew has been around for about a year and a half, but tucked away in less touristy South London, it is a bit lower on the radar than gluten free favourites like Beyond Bread and Artisan Gluten Free Bakery.  I first visited when the team invited me to come and sample their menu (#livingthedream), and have since been back several treat-filled times. I wanted to share it with those gluten free folk who may not have discovered it yet. Here's to deliciousness served fresh. Everything is #guaranteed #glutenfree . Our cakes are primarily sweetened with natural sweeteners. Tarts, Cheesecakes and Specialty Creations. Indulge yourself! #glutenfree #artisan #patisserie #sw11 #glutenfreebaking #glitenfreelife #healthy #delicious #battersea A photo posted by Manna Dew Cafe ( on Mar 2, 2016 at 4:52am PST The Food The food at Manna Dew is 100% gluten free, and also free of refined sugars. Originally developed by an ex-Laduree chef, the menu is full of Mediterranean-influenced delicacies. One of my readers likened it to Helmut Newcake in Paris. …


Beyond Bread: A Gluten Free Bakery in Central London!

It just about made my life when I found out there would be a gluten free bakery opening less than 5 minutes walk from my office. Beyond Bread opened just a few weeks ago, and thus far seems to be getting positive reviews in the gluten free community, for good reason. I’ve popped in a few times to test samples and buy treats, and these are my impressions so far. LOCATION  Beyond Bread have picked a great location; a little shop in Charlotte’s Place, which hits the west end sweet spot between the hordes of office workers with lunch money to burn and the tourists drifting off Oxford Circus. There is space to sit in. This could be a nice place to recuperate after the shopping assault course that is Oxford / Regent Street. THE FOOD So far I have tried the baguettes (they rival the Gluten Free Baking and Living ones – very good), the dark chocolate brownie (almost more cakey than a brownie, but whatevs, it’s delicious), the cinnamon swirl (YUM). One lunchtime soon I would like to sit in …


Romeo’s Gluten-Free Bakery – OH GOOD LORD

Romeo’s Gluten-Free Bakery – OH GOOD LORD It’s September 30th, 2013. It can’t be too much longer until Romeo’s Gluten-free Bakery finally opens (I’m not counting down the days or anything…). The photos on the website look so good, I am genuinely considering moving to Islington to be within walking distance. We have had the wonderful WAGfree bakery in London for a while, (and I have been really happy to see their cakes in Selfridge’s recently, as I don’t make it down to Brixton very often), but it will be fantastic to have what looks to be the complete gluten-free experience available so centrally on Upper Street. What’s more, as the bakery will be 100% gluten-free, it should be a safe haven for coeliacs. A friend of mine lives nearby, and is under strict instructions to call me as soon as Romeo’s Bakery opens its doors. From the website: ‘Romeo’s Gluten Free Bakery will soon be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving coffee, sweet treats, salads, sandwiches and savoury dishes.’ *salivates* P.S. They’re hiring!
