Right. We’re going to be totally honest with you here – this particular edition of Coeliac Cities was an absolute nightmare to curate. Don’t get us wrong, Bath is a lovely city, as equally lovely as the residents within, but wandering unfamiliar streets in freezing cold temps, whilst trudging ankle deep in snow is not our idea of an enjoyable afternoon. Luckily, Bath did the gluten-free community proud when it came to its offerings, leaving us in a much better mood than we arrived in. We also learnt a fairly interesting fact about the city that we thought we oughta’ share – the planet Uranus was discovered by William Herschel in his back garden on New King Street. Crazy! Anyway, let’s get on with it…
Lunch @ The Whole Bagel
The first place we visited was this fantastic little bagel joint aptly named ‘The Whole Bagel’, based on Bath’s Upper Borough Walls. Rather unpredictably we had a sandwich, but not just any sandwich. A French Brie & Pear Sandwich with Italian Prosciutto, Rocket, Roasted Walnuts & Balsamic Dressing, expertly layered between two slices of delicious gluten-free bread. Trust us when we say it was incredible as it sounds.
Dinner @ Dough
After a stroll around the city walls and a couple of brief visits to Bath’s finest public houses (for heat the not the alcohol of course!) we stumbled upon Dough, considered to be Bath’s greatest Gluten Free Pizza. Now, we’re not entirely sure of the level of competition that exists for that particular title but we felt it was enough to warrant a visit. We went for the Gluten Free Calzone, our first one ever in fact, and boy was it good.
Dessert @ Rosarios Café
Finally, the one you’ve all been waiting for. The most important meal of the day – dessert! When doing a little research for our visit to Bath we found this café mentioned in a few different places and upon seeing a pic of their GF Coffee & Walnut cake it was basically a done deal. Upon arrival we caught sight of their Gluten Free Sicilian Lemon Cake which left us in quite the predicament. Only joking, we had both, and they were both STUNNING. 5/5
So there you have it – three fabulous gluten free offerings from an equally fabulous city. The real question is, where do we head to next? Let us know over on Twitter @TooGoodToBeUK
