Joseph Keith. @ReporterJoseph. 2 Oxford Place, Leeds LS1 3AX. It has a gluten-free kitchen which is open most of the week, serving gluten-free breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. They even have something for vegetarian coeliacs. There is also Filmore and Union which is accredited by Coeliac UK.

Carol Stevens. With three coeliac kids, I shop around all the stores for various brands, but don’t forget to check “ordinary” shelves as there is plenty of gluten free foods. Some items are available on prescription and it is easy to cook gluten-free from scratch x
Lesley Brook Gill. Why don’t people just make their own food from fresh ingredients? Not everything has to come out of a packet. And believe it or not, one can live without bread, cakes and biscuits.
Vicki Brownridge. My daughter is a coeliac and I find Tescos do a good range from cooking sauces, tom/brown sauce & salad cream, cereals etc. Frozen selection very good from potato wedges, onion rings etc. X
Dawn Simpson. I’m a celiac and it’s hard to find a good choice of gluten free food and when you do it’s expensive!!
Sue Rossiter. Sainsburys in the White Rose.
Michael Thackray. Asda do a good range in the larger stores.
Julie Robinson. Hardly anywhere. And those that do are quite expensive.
Michael Canny. Did 2 Oxford Place stay open after the initial hype? Filmore & Union, Roots and Fruits? Most of the decent Italian places like Salvos Restaurant and Salumeria have a decent range of coeliac-friendly items.
Shari Sant. Tod’s Treats Guiseley do many gluten-free sandwiches and cakes as well as sweets without hiked up prices!!!
Liam O’reilly. Is it cheaper without gluten?
Keely Russell. No where has a wide selection and is expensive.
Samantha Brownbill-Meehan. Skyliner fish shop, Whitkirk, Leeds!!!
Amanda Apperley. We recommend 2 Oxford Place. Its Ami’s favourite place to eat and we love it too.
Rick Poppa. The Woods in Chapel Allerton do some great gluten- free pizzas! The beer’s not that bad too.
Sarah Fletcher. When eating out I’d recommend Bella Italia, Handmade burger co & Tgi Fridays.
Debbie Mcdowell. Doghouse cafe, High Street, Yeadon serves gluten-free sandwiches and cakes.
