Montreal's Top Takeout Options for Gluten-Free Eaters

19 options for the gluten-sensitive among us

View as Map

Ordering in can be a burden for someone with a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease, but many restaurants have moved beyond simply dumping a packet of gluten-free pasta into boiling water and calling it a day.

This map includes top picks of places that either have a solid selection of gluten-free options or a demonstrated willingness to accommodate, covering bases from fast food through to fine dining.

Note that while all the spots on the list are great for the gluten-sensitive among us, those with Celiac disease might want to stick to entirely wheat-free establishments, like L’Artisan or Arepera.

L'Artisan (multiple locations)

Copy Link

L’Artisan is a one-stop shop for the gluten- and lactose-free folks on the hunt for goodies both sweet and savoury. The boulangerie and patisserie (which has a second location in Rosemère on the North Shore) offers everything from cakes and flaky viennoiseries to hearty breads and bagels. Although their products are not explicitly vegan, the eggs can be left out of the cakes that they make to order. Open every day but Monday, L’Artisan’s baked goods are available for both pick up (with the option to call or message ahead of time) and (for a fee) delivery.

Le Marquis Sans Gluten (multiple locations)

Copy Link

A haven for gluten-free, pastry-loving folks, Le Marquis’ croissants, baguettes, mille-feuilles, and more are all made with quality rice, flax or lentil flours. Le Marquis has two locations on the island, but thanks to their delivery option (which is free for orders over $50 within Montreal), it’s not necessary to leave the house to get your hands on the goods.

Crêperie du Marché

Copy Link

Jean Talon mainstay Crêperie du Marché has long been known for its gluten-free buckwheat crepes, and now customers can get sweet and savoury pancakes delivered right to their doorstep with several of the third-party apps. Crêperie du Marché boasts an entirely gluten-free menu, from the popular spinach, egg, ham, and Swiss cheese, to the classic chestnut cream.

Pizzeria No. 900 (multiple locations)

Copy Link

No. 900’s wood-fired Neapolitan pies have been a hit since the original Outremont location opened in 2015 — and every single one of the now-numerous locations offers a gluten-free, rice flour base. Pies (and bottles of imported wine) are currently available for delivery and takeout at all of its many Montreal-area locations.

Chef Antonio Park’s Japanese cuisine fused with flavours from South America and Korea is a Westmount destination — and the sushi-heavy menu is ideal for a gluten-free diet, with plenty of reminders on the website to notify the restaurant of any dietary restrictions when ordering. Make sure to request gluten-free soy sauce when placing your order, which can be delivered for free if over $40 and within a 6 km radius of the restaurant.

Tacos Victor

Copy Link

Corn tortillas and gluten-free diets are a match made in heaven, perhaps nowhere more so in Montreal than at Tacos Victor, where the entire menu of fry-topped tacos and other Mexican sides is fully free of gluten. Victor’s cornmeal tacos are served with classic fillings like steak, chorizo, shrimp, and veggies, and can be ordered through several third-party apps.

Sushi Momo

Copy Link

Sushi without fish might seem questionable to some, but all-vegan Sushi Momo works magic with plants, offering a number of truly innovative rolls, appetizers and more, all of which go far beyond wrapping some avocado in rice and nori. Place an order from the extensive takeout menu available on Sushi Momo’s website, where gluten-free items are conveniently rounded up on a separate list.

Mae Sri Comptoir Thai

Copy Link

Get your fill of Thai street food-inspired favourites without worrying about any pesky traces of gluten. Mae Sri’s gluten-free dishes are clearly marked on the menu, and include pad thai, green curry, and vegan-fried rice. Both Mae Sri locations (Milton and St. Denis) are currently open for pickup and delivery.

Kleine Shoppe

Copy Link

This all-gluten-free establishment in St-Henri offers an ever-changing menu of baked goods, including homemade two-bite brownies and poptarts, assorted cookies and cakes, and an all-new “mystery box”, which features an assortment of Kleine Shoppe favourites, all of which can be ordered on its website for delivery every Friday and Saturday. Low-carb dieters are also in luck: all of the bakery’s products can be made Keto-friendly upon request.

Pho Rachel

Copy Link

For those who love noodles but can’t stomach wheat, look to pho. Rice noodles give the satisfying bouncy texture without the gluten. Pho Rachel is particularly noteworthy, as it offers both meaty and vegetarian options, as well as a delicious Vietnamese iced coffee. Available for delivery with SkipTheDishes and UberEats.

Already a well-established favourite among Montreal’s vegans and vegetarians, trendy LOV is also great for the gluten-free crowd, with a number of wheat-free dishes (including mushroom risotto, gnocchi and a hearty chili) clearly labelled on the menu. Orders can be placed on LOV’s website or for delivery through UberEats.

Bocadillo

Copy Link

Another favourite for arepas in Montreal (plus a host of other Venezuelan dishes), Bocadillo’s many gluten-free options are clearly marked on the menu and include a wide selection of the aforementioned arepas (like the arepa de huevo, which is stuffed with a fried egg, avocado and cheese) and fried plantain and cassava wedges. Available for pickup and delivery on the restaurant’s website.

Parc sans gluten

Copy Link

Quaint bakery and La Fontaine Park neighbour Parc Sans Gluten is a hidden gem for lovers of wheatless bread and sweets in the Plateau, with a range of largely French-inspired treats that are gluten-free in name but rarely in taste. Fill your breakfast table with Parc San Gluten’s eclairs, tarts, quiche,s and viennoiseries, and, of course, lots of bread.

Arepera

Copy Link

Montreal has gained several great options for Venezuelan and Colombian arepas — flat, cornmeal-based cakes that are often stuffed with cheese, meat, beans, and more — but few can compete with the flavours (and prices) on offer at Arepera, which sticks to a simple menu of mostly arepas (with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options) to great effect. In addition to a fully gluten-free dining menu (celiacs rejoice!), Arepera also stocks Glutenberg’s gluten-free beer. Place takeout orders online.

Ottavio (multiple locations)

Copy Link

The menu at Italian restaurant Ottavio, which has locations in Laval, Saint-Laurent, and Saint-Leonard, is a dream come true for anyone with multiple dietary restrictions. Ottavio offers separate gluten-free and vegan menus, with many major allergens (including dairy, eggs, mustard, and shellfish) clearly marked. The gluten-free menu features plenty of traditionally wheat-heavy dishes, like pasta, pizza and garlic bread, all available for delivery through third-party apps.

Il Focolaio

Copy Link

Il Focolaio is known for some of the best pizza in Montreal, and thankfully, that extends to gluten-free options, too. Il Focolaio’s gluten-free crust is toasted up in the same wood oven as their regular dough (which means it’s not ideal for celiacs, unfortunately), and the taste and texture is so close to the real deal that it’s near-impossible to tell the difference. They’ve also got lactose-free and vegan cheese options for those whose dietary restrictions include more than just wheat. Pizzas (both fresh and frozen), sandwiches, wine, and beer are available for takeout or delivery on Il Focolaio’s website.

Audacieuse Vanille

Copy Link

Verdun’s go-to gluten-free bakery is also vegan and free of soy. The offerings are wide-ranging, from small treats, tarts, and cookies through to decadent, full-sized layered cakes. 

Cookie Stéfanie

Copy Link

The sweets at this Old Montreal patisserie are proof that dietary restrictions do not necessitate eating “diet” food. Celiac-friendly Cookie Stéfanie specializes in cookies, cupcakes, and cakes. It’s all gluten-free, and some items are also vegan, enabling sugar rushes for a wide range of eaters. Cookie Stéfanie is closed on weekends, but is otherwise available for both pickup and delivery.

Pizzeria Bros (multiple locations)

Copy Link

Those with dietary restrictions could feel spoiled for choice at popular thin crust pizza joint Pizzeria Bros, where guests are asked to build their own pizzas from a list of toppings, sauces and crusts, including a “gluten sensitive” option. Topping choices are vast and suited to any preferences, from meat lovers to pizza purists to strict vegans. The chain now has six locations on the island, all of which offer in-store pickup and delivery (via UberEats).

L'Artisan (multiple locations)

L’Artisan is a one-stop shop for the gluten- and lactose-free folks on the hunt for goodies both sweet and savoury. The boulangerie and patisserie (which has a second location in Rosemère on the North Shore) offers everything from cakes and flaky viennoiseries to hearty breads and bagels.
