Considering that crepes are made from flour they are full of gluten and can't be enjoyed by our celiac slash gluten-sensitive friends. A restaurant in Griffintown is set out to offer gluten-intolerant people more than just grainy cornbread.  This spot serves classic French crepes - 100 % gluten-free.

Located on Notre Dame Street Ouest Restaurant Spanel is run and operated by chef Yann Bris who comes from France himself so you can be confident he knows his stuff.
