Guilt-Free Treats

It’s all your favourite treats – except their nicer, better-looking cousins. Tucked away in Podil, Kyiv’s historic neighbourhood, lies the “Gluten- Free Niche”. It’s one of the few places in Kyiv where “gluten can’t sit with us”, and sugar and lactose can find their own table, too.

No sacrifices
You may think that something made without gluten, sugar, and lactose surely can’t live up taste-wise to the traditional version. I’m happy to inform you that taste is in no way sacrificed, and I’d go as far as to say that it is enhanced. It’s a food-allergy sufferer’s haven and a regular Joe’s newfound guilty pleasure.

Treat yourself
Pick the best looking treat from the glass display, although I warn you it’s easier said than done! The choice between Coconut Napoleon Cake, Tiramisu, and Pistachio Mint Cheesecake is not an easy one. This dilemma can only be solved by bringing a friend and splitting a few of the gorgeous creations! Coffee and tea with a selection of lactose-free milks pairs great with the desserts or a gourmet sandwich on you guessed it gluten-free bread. Gluten-free goodness awaits!
