Good news for travelers visiting Spain who follow a gluten free diet…you can have your cake and eat it too! There is a growing awareness and accommodations that can be made for people who suffer from celiac disease or gluten allergies, so you won’t have to miss out on all of the amazing foods offered.
Nowhere has this awareness been more embraced than at Celicioso Bakery. Their storefront location in Madrid’s trendy Chueca neighborhood serves up beautifully crafted treats that are delicious, regardless of whether you are gluten free or not. Guests staying at the chic Only You Boutique Hotel on nearby Calle del Barquillo can also enjoy the gluten free treats at the bakery’s outpost located adjacent to the hotel, with convenient access off the hotel lobby.
Celicioso was launched by Santi Godfrid in 2012, after he was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years prior at the age of 23. Rather than resign himself to a life without the foods he loved, like bread, cakes and cookies, Santi set out to create a place where he and others like him could find a wide selection of their favorite foods, all 100% gluten free. The best part is that even if you don’t have any dietary restrictions, the products prepared at Celisioso are so good that you won’t even notice they are gluten free.
And if your travels happen to take you to Marbella, a popular vacation spot on the Costa del Sol, you can visit the first Celicioso bakery to be opened outside of Madrid. It is located at the Hotel Puente Romano.
