Gluten-free goodness! Gluten-free desserts in Calgary

Before you say “Going gluten-free (GF) is not for me, I just couldn’t do without dessert,” consider the growing array of GF sweets created by some of Calgary’s best cafés and bakeries.

Lakeview Bakery

6449 Crowchild Trail SW, Calgary, AB T3E 5R7

Gluten-free baked goods are a big part of what this health-conscious bakery is known for. Its GF carrot cake topped with cream cheese icing is an outstanding favourite with regulars at its two locations.

Lakeview On 90th

131-2515 90 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2V 0L8

Sister location to the original Lakeview Bakery, you can find Lakeview on 90th in the community of Oakridge at 90th Avenue and 24th Street Southwest. The shop is a completely gluten-free facility that carries fresh-baked breads, buns and pastries as well as imported European GF foodstuffs.

Yann Haute Patisserie

329, 23 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2S 0J3

Not only are Yann Haute Patisserie macarons prepared by a Parisian expat chef, these delicate French cookies are gluten free. Romp your GF-lovin’ way through a giant list of flavours from mint-chocolate and lavender-apricot to salted caramel and strawberry-vanilla.

Ca-Ex Express Ltd

4572 14 St NE, Calgary, AB T2E 6T7

Your craving for a gluten-free strawberry-banana éclair can be handled with the utmost taste and delicacy at Ohh La La. If it isn’t available today, this temptress of a banana-custard-filled, strawberry-glazed dessert can be special ordered.

Ollia Macarons & Tea

810 16 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0S9

Delicate sandwich cookies made with almond-meringue biscuits and filled with ganache, buttercream or jam, Ollia maracon flavours include salted caramel, lavender honey and raspberry white chocolate cheesecake. They also happen to be 100 per cent gluten free.

Epiphanie Chocolate

1417 11 St SW, Calgary, AB T2R 1G7

For the gluten-sensitive sweet tooth, Epiphanie Chocolate has much to offer. Of the gourmet chocolate shop’s 34 available flavours, just one is not gluten-free. Bestselling sweets include the pyramid-shaped Tahitian blonde, which is filled with vanilla ganache and vanilla bean seeds. Also very popular, the rose chocolate is imprinted with an edible photo of a red rose.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
