Niche in London’s Clerkenwell serves up all your favourite comfort foods. Only there’s a twist – everything is gluten free. You wouldn’t know it though. Signature dishes such as quiches, pies and burgers are all made using gluten-free ingredients that taste identical to their gluten-filled counterparts.
Niche is the first restaurant in London certified as 100% gluten-free by Coeliac UK. They make it easy to enjoy dinner out without the stress of agonising over the menu. With many dairy-free and vegan options also on offer, everyone can feel at home.
Their handy allergen chart allows diners to see exactly what allergens are in each dish – it’s a godsend for those with allergies! The restaurant even offers dishes for those following a low FODMAP diet.
Everyone Is Welcome!
While Niche understands the needs and preferences of those customers with allergies and intolerances, they still have something to offer everyone. For the theatre crowd, there’s a pre-theatre menu with £5 starters and enticing mains like vegan quinoa risotto. Or dairy-free slow-cooked pork belly with red cabbage and caramelised apple for the meat-eaters.
Brunch-goers can meet over a three egg omelette or sweet potato pancakes with fresh fruit and maple soya yogurt. Vegans with a sweet tooth can happily lose themselves in the hot apple and blackberry crumble with dairy-free custard. Or there’s banoffee cheesecake, made with a cashew base and dairy-free cream cheese.
Since opening in 2013, Niche has garnered quite the following. They’re listed in The Telegraph’s Top Ten Best London Restaurants for gluten-free food and were selected by Londonist as one of the best gluten-free lunch spots.
Join those in the know and find your niche at 197-199 Rosebery Avenue. It’s just a few minutes’ walk from Angel Tube station.
