Gluten-free food in Amsterdam

Here’s our roundup of the top gluten-free restaurants and cafes to keep your belly happy.

Rose & Vanilla

Whether you have a gluten allergy, are lactose intolerant or both: Rose & Vanilla is the place to go for cakes, cookies, lunch and more that will be kind to your belly. There delicious range was previously stocked only in organic supermarkets, but since early 2023, they’ve set up their own beautiful cake cafe in Oud-West.

Finding decent gluten-free pizza sometimes seems almost impossible. But not at Loulou Pizzabar, where their ultimate gluten-free pizza is developed in their pizza lab in Italy. The thin and crispy crust (made from pea flour, rice flour and corn flour) topped with fresh tomato sauce, rivals "normal" pizza. The vast choice of toppings, from prosciutto cotto to marinated octopus, rounds it out.
