8 Places in Kelowna to indulge in Gluten-free treats with coffee

Another work of art from Karat Chocolate! The Hazelnut Rocher

This one is all for my GF peeps.

I always feel a little guilty when I post delicious things that they are not able to enjoy. Luckily having gluten allergies is not the tastebud death sentence that it used to be. In today’s world, genius modern bakers have concocted a much larger, much tastier spectrum of foods to eat.

Coffee and treat dates are one of my favourite ways to visit with friends. Here are 8 places to go for a fabulous coffee and a delectable treat to share with your GF pals.

1. Karat Chocolate & Pastry Boutique steals my heart every time I visit. Exquisitely beautiful chocolates and pastries all lined up under glass is a feast for the eyes. Cue to stomach and you will be happily indulged with whatever you choose. GFs, here you can savour a hazelnut Rocher (You know like those Ferrero Rocher balls? Ya, well Karat’s version that is a zillion times better) and/or a new gf and vegan super chocolatey brownie. https://www.karatchocolate.ca

2. One Big Table - This adorable, local-items-only shop is also a great destination for yummy food. They have GF baked goods that perfectly pair with your coffee like blondies and brownies. After your snack you can do a shop for local veggies, cheeses, meats and more. http://www.onebigtable.ca

Affogatos are GF! And dairy free & vegan if you want too!

3. QB Gelato – Affogatos are one my top afternoon indulgences. A scoop of gelato is ‘drowned’ (the word affogato in Italian) in espresso. This is GF AND if you are dairy intolerant, Victor and Kevin have you covered too with a coconut milk gelato.
