Hotel: Maison Colbert Amelia Collection

“What a quaint and elegant boutique hotel in Paris! Just across from Notre Dame. They have a restaurant on site that serves breakfast and afternoon snack. They have many alternative milk options for morning coffee as well! So nice to have a cafe with oat milk. They also have an outdoor courtyard space where you can bring your own beverages and food to enjoy there. We had champagne out there a few afternoons. The staff is very helpful and aware of food issues and the menu is labeled. They also have gluten-free products, like bread and cookies, upon request.”

Breakfast: Maison Colbert Amelia Collection

Lunch: Les Nymphéas

“This is the restaurant in Giverny on the property of the Claude Monet’s Water Lily Garden. The outdoor back patio is lovely, so request to sit there if you can. I got an omelette and fries! We had wine with lunch after some lovely twirling with the water lilies. The translation cards were most helpful here!”

Dinner: Cafe Jade

“We went to this restaurant because the place we wanted to go was not allergy-friendly. We stumbled upon this place, found out they used sunflower oil, and went for it for dinner. The burger was good, the fries were good, the wine was good, our server was aware of ingredients and was proactive! Not our best meal in Paris, but very yummy and safe. The ambience was cool, and they had outdoor seating!”

Sightseeing: Giverny – Monet’s Water Lillies


Breakfast: Maison Colbert Amelia Collection

“Omelette, potatoes, fresh fruit, coffee, and juice!”

Lunch: Picnic in Champagne

Dinner: Hébé

“This is a Mediterranean, French restaurant run by the nicest couple ever. (If you go, tell Carol I say I love her). They have a a separate allergen chart you can request that outlines which menu items contain each allergen AND which items can be adjusted not to contain them. It’s a smaller plate-style restaurant, so you can try more things! Some highlights: artichoke 3 ways, roasted octopus, and potatoes, obviously! And a great wine selection! This place has 15 tables max, so it is very intimate and lovely! More on the casual side. They do use nuts in the kitchen.”

Sightseeing: Day tour to Champagne booked through ‘My Wine Days’.

“Karl is amazing. Request him if you can.”


Dinner: Didon

“This is the more upscale sibling restaurant of HÉBÉ. The chef here is Michelin starred and the wine and beverage list is phenomenal. They have a detailed allergen chart at this location as well! The owner brought me to the kitchen to speak with Chef Eric directly! All was allergy-friendly and absolutely delicious INCLUDING THE AMUSE BOUCHE! I had risotto, swordfish, zucchini 3 ways, and delicious potatoes. Carol and her husband really are a power couple, balancing wine and food knowledge! They do use nuts in the kitchen. This is on the pricier side, but it is just wonderful!”

Sightseeing: Musée D’Orsay

Sightseeing: L’Orangerie

Sightseeing: Eiffel Tower


Dinner: YA BAYTÉ

“Another amazing restaurant by the owners of Didon and HÉBÉ! This is a true power couple. YA BAYTÉ is a quick service Lebanese inspired restaurant that allows you to customize your meal! (Think Chipotle-style, but fresher and better). This place is in view of Notre Dame, so great for lunch and eating outside. They also have a detailed allergen chart! Everything thing here was delish!”

Drinks: Les Caves du Louvre

“This is an awesome place for wine tasting! There is an educational component about French wines and you get to learn and taste in the underground caves of Paris, just a short walk from the Louvre. The team is incredibly knowledgeable and the wine and ambience are wonderful. There is a scent-related activity so if you have airborne allergies, I recommend not participating in that part or speaking to them in advance, just in case!”

Dessert: Berthillon

“They have so many options and at least 15 dairy-free options. All so delicious and made with fresh fruit. I had chocolate and pear sorbet, and also tasted the apricot, fig, raspberry, and peach. The person was very knowledgeable and used separate scoops. 10/10.”

Sightseeing: The Louvre
