Tel Aviv has quickly become Israel’s hub for gluten free food! With nearly a dozen 100% gluten free spots and countless gluten free friendly cafes, it isn’t too difficult to find somewhere to eat. The hard part is choosing which place! Maybe this gluten free Tel Aviv list will help you!
100% Dedicated Gluten Free:
Gluteria– (Not Kosher) Easily the best gluten free pizza in Israel and maybe even the world! Gluteria was originally a yearly pop-up but recently the opened a restaurant which offers delicious pizza, homemade breads, and crazy desserts all year round!
VGF– (Vegan) Located in Levinsky Market is VGF or Vegan Gluten Free. They are a small little shop run by a mother and daughter just off the main street of the market. They offer a few baked goods (which change daily) and homemade comfort foods! Follow them on Instagram to see what’s on the menu today.
Blikemach- (Kosher) Located a little far from town in Ramat HaHayel, Blikemach is a 100% gluten free bakery with all the goodies you’ve been dreaming of! Cookies, cakes, breads, pizza, croissants, and more!
* CLOSED *Lelo– This dedicated gluten free cafe has two locations: one kosher and one not kosher. Their menu offers a wide selection of dishes from schnitzel to pasta and focaccia. Read more about them in my full review here.
Reviva v’Celia- This company has both a restaurant with amazing gluten free options as well as a 100% gluten free store! The store is only open on Thursday’s and Friday’s so be sure to check their website to see if they are open.
Dosa Bar- (Kosher) This cute spot on Ben Yehuda St. is serving up a Southern India favorite called Dosa’s. A dosa is a giant flat pancake made of chickpea flour served with curry and other dippings. Definitely a fun place to try if you’re in the mood for something new!
Gluten Free Friendly:
Meshek Barzilay– (not kosher but their take away deli is Tzhoar. )
Vegan food that is well labeled and delicious gluten free bread, don’t mind if I do! They also host gluten free cooking courses. If you haven’t already added it, be sure to put Meshek on the top of your gluten free Tel Aviv list!
416– A fun mix of a vegan cafe and a high end New York City style cocktail bar, 416 is a can’t miss! Just be sure to tell them if you are Celiac as their gluten free menu options (which are labeled) are not necessarily safe for Celiac. They will however go out of the way to accommodate your dietary needs!
Anastasia- This vegan cafe is offering up Israeli brunch classics, sandwiches on gluten free bread, tofu patties, dosas, and more. They also offer event platters and the option to order online through Wolt or Ten Bis.
Munnar– My favorite Indian restaurant in Tel Aviv, Munar’s Dosas are unbeatable. They also have what might be the best rice pudding you will ever eat! Located on Nahalat Binyamin.
Citizen Garden- A cute little vegetarian cafe with the perfect garden for sitting and studying. They offer gluten free health food bowls, a savory waffle, superfood drinks, and more! Follow them on Insta, @citizen_tlv.
Falafel Belgi- (Vegan) Forget the pita! How about a Belgian waffle that’s made out of gluten free falafel and stuffed with all the salatim you love! Their Tel Aviv location has closed but you can visit their flagship spot in Rishon Letzion.
Biga- (Kosher) Located outside Sarona Market (with other chains around the country as well), Biga has delicious gluten free pasta. They also have take away baked goods, breads, and more.
La Lasagna– (Kosher) With a full separate gluten free menu, La Lasagna is a great option for Italian food in Tel Aviv. They have 14 years of experience and have become a favorite among kosher and non kosher eaters alike.
Nini Hachi– Did someone say sushi? Nini Hachi offers a fine dining option for sushi lovers. They pride themselves in their gluten free options and are a great safe sushi spot for Celiacs.
Donatello- (Kosher) Pizza Pizza! They even offer delivery for those times where you just want to eat pizza in bed while watching shitty T.V.
Johnny Falafel / Falafel Banin- (Kosher) Open since 1955, Johnny Falafel has gluten free pita, a dedicated gluten free fryer, and separate salatim! It really doesn’t get much butter than that- but it helps that Johnny is also one fo the nicest people I have ever met!
Beit HaPancake- Located at the Namal, Beit HaPancake has a full gluten free prep station in their kitchen including a gluten free cook top, utensils, plates, and more.
Mela Goods- In the old north, this super cute sandwich shop and cafe has incredible gluten free bread and a wide range of gluten free snacks/ treats. Their brownie is one of the best I have ever had.
Moses– (Kosher and non Kosher locations) Looking for a cheeseburger on a gluten free bun? I have been told that Moses is the place for you. Just a heads up that if you want to try their kosher location you’ll have to trek to Petach Tikvah.
Bretonne- This Creperie (with multiple locations across Tel Aviv) is serving up gluten free buckwheat crepes with vegan, dairy, and meat options. They also have sweet crepes stuffed with yumminess like Nutella, fresh fruit, cream, and more.
Old Man and the Sea– While I always assumed this famous spot known for its sharing plates would be a cross contamination nightmare, I have heard nothing but wonderful things for their attention to dietary needs.
Nam- (not kosher, like I’m talking shrimp on the menu) They may not be kosher, but they do have 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor! Everyone I know raves about their gluten free options and they also offer delivery!
Ca Phe Hanoi: (kosher) This phenomenal kosher Asian fusion restaurant is extremely gluten free friendly. They have amazing noodle bowls and salads. Check them out in person or order on Wolt.
BaliInjera: (kosher) This Ethiopian spot in the Kerem HaTemani is everything you ever dreamed of. All but two things on their menu are gluten free and they are super cautious. They have amazing vegan options as well. A great budget friendly/ sharing option.
