Arsicault Bakery

Location: San Fransisco, California

“Peanut, pecan and walnut free facility! They do, however, use almonds and hazelnuts Very happily and safely had my first croissant here. Wonderfully buttery, flaky, and soft.”
@nutfreefun who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Johnny Doughnuts

Location: San Fransisco, California

“Update: we went yesterday and tried some new flavors including their ‘crodough’ a mix between a croissant and a doughnut. It was even filled with cream which is my favorite. They were so good!! Nut free donut shop in the Bay Area! I was told the owner has an allergy herself so completely nut free. They have a few locations, but I’ve gone to the one in San Francisco. Delicious donuts and great flavors! I believe they do have almond milk as an option to put in your coffee but that doesn’t really make me nervous. Definitely recommend!”

Mariposa Baking Company

Location: San Fransisco, California

“After hearing so many wonderful things about this bakery, I had a chance to visit it, and it exceeded all of my expectations! Dedicated gluten and peanut-free, they do use pecans, walnuts, and almonds, but as Emily mentioned, they take cross-contamination seriously. I would highly recommend the chocolate croissants and the spanakopita!”

Location: Thousand Oaks, California

“This is a gem! It’s a great authentic French cafe. Limited nuts and fully able to accommodate a nut allergy. Crepes and delicious croissants and sandwiches. We love coming here and feeling like we can eat safely. The owner is always there to answer questions.”

French Corner Bakery

Location: Cambria, California

“My son had a delicious cinnamon roll and a croissant. Both were safe for him and were very good. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and a clear designation of the pastries that had nuts or not. They did not use peanuts at all, only almonds and walnuts on a few. They were aware of cross-contamination issues as well. Good coffee and hot chocolate.”
@jjones7 who manages peanut, fruit, and vegetable allergies

Local Grind Coffee + Cafe

Location: Long Beach, California

“They had a lot of vegan and gluten free options which is nice. I don’t normally eat at coffee shops with my allergy kiddo but we had a good experience here. They told us what we could eat and that they hadn’t had any pastries with peanuts in a while. They did have some walnuts. No cashews or pistachios. My allergy kiddo could safely eat the pretzel croissant, which was amazing! She said it was the best she’d ever had. Super local and friendly place.”
@vkotz who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Qargo Coffee

Location: Long Beach, California

“We came here since it was within walking distance of our hotel. The cafe is super cute. They had a nutrition chart and checked ingredients for us. My allergy kiddo had the pain au chocolate which doesn’t have nuts. The chocolate croissant does have almond and hazelnut. The biggest find here though was the vegan croissant! Great vibes and super helpful and friendly staff. Would come back here. Coffee was excellent, I got an oat milk latte. They use lavaaza coffee. They also have boba tea here which was good. My kiddo had the tropical boba safely.”
@vkotz who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

The Merchant

Location: Long Beach, California

“There is cross-contact for their pastries, but we have cleared that with our treatment. That being said, their pastries are phenomenal and so is their coffee. This is a super cute neighborhood coffee shop and would definitely come back just for their croissants and guava and cheese pastry.”
@vkotz who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Melinda’s Gluten Free Bakery

Location: Capitola, California

“Dedicated gluten-free and peanut-free bakery in Capitola! I’ve found a lot of new bakeries popping up that are gluten-free + peanut-free but do use tree nuts, and found that there’s a lot of discrepancy in their allergen practices and cross-contact procedures. Melinda’s was the most tree nut allergy-friendly spot I’ve visited! None of their flour mixes contain nuts, so the only items that have tree nuts are pastries topped with them – it think it was just one with almonds! They also have a sandwich with pesto. They were fantastic about pulling stuff from different shelves, changing gloves, and keeping everything cross-contact free! They fill their cream puffs in the back after you order them so they’re super fresh, and I was so excited when the person working the register asked for a fresh glove change for a nut allergy before it was filled! Everything I got was so high quality and tasted delicious! Highly recommend the donuts, croissants, monkey bread, and breakfast sandwiches!”

MillCross Coffee Bar & Kitchen

Location: Culver City, California

“Really love this breakfast spot! As someone with allergies, I very rarely can have sweet things on the menu, but MillCross was wonderful, and I could safely have their Croissant French Toast!! Absolutely delicious and very reasonable prices. This place has become a regular for me!”
@kqwright5 who manages peanut, tree nut, and sesame allergies


COBS Bread Bakery

Location: Stamford, Connecticut

“This location is entirely peanut and nut-free! Amazing breads and pastries—only safe place I have been able to have a chocolate croissant!”

Three Girls Vegan Downtown

Location: Guilford, Connecticut

“Three girls vegan has been serving delicious Italian cuisine for years. They recently opened a bakery at a second location in Connecticut. They serve bakery foods, breads and more. I went there on their third day since opening and enjoyed their croissants, focaccia, pain au chocolate, cupcakes and cookies. I also had their soft serve ice cream with chocolate dip on a cone. They have a few different soft serve flavors and a choice of chocolate or cherry dip and other toppings. They also make soft serve sundaes, shakes and ice cream cakes. Their soft serve is oat milk based. I believe they use almond milk as well. Their cones are gluten-free. Everything on their menu is dairy-free, vegan and delicious! I can’t wait to go back to try more items on their menu!”
@shaeallergy07 who manages a milk allergy



Location: Kapolei, Hawaii

“Part of Disney Aulani resort, this restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. Ate here for both meals and had a wonderful experience. The attention to detail on allergens is superb, starting from the reservation where they proactively collect allergen information from guests to the check-in where they confirm, to the waitstaff who confirm again. They have allergen menus and the kitchen was able to handle my nut and legume allergies with ease. For the breakfast service, they even brought my my own safe basket of breads and pastries. I almost never eat baked goods out, and was almost in disbelief that I could eat a croissant in a restaurant. All allergen meals delivered separately with allergen flags on each item to confirm.”
@ericrosenkranz who manages peanut, tree nut, kiwi, and legume allergies


Bennison’s Bakery

Location: Evanston, Illinois

“Lots of yummy stuff here, and it’s all peanut-free! My kids like the donuts, but I love their ham and cheese croissants and monkey bread. They do birthday cakes, too. (Try the white cake with lemon fruit filling. It’s the best!)”
@ladybug who manages peanut, egg, and fish allergies

Medici on 57th

Location: Chicago, Illinois

“I love Medici! Such a wonderful environment with great food and people. I’ve had so many things here, from pizza to burgers to shakes to croissants to bread to coffee to tea and the list is kinda never ending. There are a few items in the bakery that have nuts, and they always give me a warning if possible cross-contact, but I’ve never had an issue and they’re normally clean and thoughtful about my allergy. I don’t think there are any other nuts on their restaurant menu, but if there are there are few of them and the staff is fantastic about making a note and keeping my meal safe. During COVID, I ordered online for delivery from Medici and it was fantastic. No problems at all!”
@natalie who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Caffè Nero

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

“Omg!!! Just got my first ever croissant from here!! They have vegan croissants and a few vegan breakfast sandwich options that are all also nut free! They are all kept in the same case as other sandwiches with dairy and egg but they used a separate pan and paper to heat the sandwich for me. I’ve always been a Cafe Nero fan but this really made me even more of a fan.”
@carlinhanley who manages peanut, tree nut, milk, shrimp, and sesame allergies

Hangar B Eatery

Location: Chatham, Massachusetts

“This is a nut-free kitchen but they do purchase almond croissants from an outside bakery. They are very clean and I highly recommend it. It is on at a privately owned airstrip but it is not that loud. When I went, there was a long wait, so get here early.”
@ohio manages peanut, tree nut, and soy allergies

Something Sweet Without Wheat

Location: Woburn, Massachusetts

“Love something sweet! I enjoyed the chocolate croissant. Certified gluten-free wholesale bakery. Also completely nut-free facility. Many of their products are also dairy-free.”
@elise who manages celiac and peanut and tree nut allergies

The Grey Barn and Farm

Location: Chilmark, Massachusetts

“This place is incredible. There can often be treen uts baked in the breads but we haven’t come across peanut. We love the fresh croissants and other breads on the weekends, and so does our peanut allergy 8-year old. Great smoked fish and frozen beef options from their farm!”
@ralphonse3 who manages a peanut allergy

New York

Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery

Location: New York, New York

“I ate here when I went on a trip to nyc the place was so clean and the staff was amazing l loved it. The best part was of course the food the croissant tasted like heaven and the fine dining that I experienced was everything. I got an omelet and it was so fluffy and had a little bit of everything in the seasoning department. Definitely recommend!”
@dakotasims who manages peanut and lentil allergies

Le Pain Quotidien

Location: New York, New York

“All the locations are super consistent. The menu is extremely detailed so if the dish has nuts in it you know. You can ask to remove something in the dish they were extremely accommodating to me. The pastries are amazing a must try, especially the croissants!”
@edenc4 who manages soy, carrot, and fruit allergies

The Donut Pub

Location: New York, New York

“Completely peanut and tree nut-free!! This shop offers a large variety of donuts and specialty donuts. They also offer cookies, croissants, and muffins. The coffee flavorings were all also safe for those with peanut and tree nut allergies. The donuts were wonderful! We ordered the following donuts: Oreo, strawberry filled, birthday cake, salted caramel, maple bacon, cinnamon bun and chocolate filled. Must try when in NYC!”
@graceflah who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Cerbone’s Bakery

Location: Rye Brook, New York

“This bakery is totally NUT-FREE!!! The last time I was there they also had no sesame in the bakery! This bakery is the only place my daughter was able to have safe donuts, rolls, croissants, cookies, and cakes from!!! They also have safe bagels!!!! The staff is not friendly, but don’t let that deter you from having wonderful yummy desserts.”
@coolallergymom who manages peanut, tree nut, soy, and legume allergies

Le Petit Monstre

Location: Brooklyn, New York

“So cute and so delicious. 100% vegan. GET THE CROISSANT. One of the best croissants I’ve ever had (even vs a non vegan one). I believe they might have another location now, I haven’t visited it yet but if it’s as good as the first highly recommend you check out both.”
@edenc4 who manages soy, carrot, and fruit allergies


Belle’s Bread Japanese Bakery and Café

Location: Columbus, Ohio

“This is such a gem! It’s a bakery free of peanuts and they use limited tree nuts (walnut, hazelnut and chestnut). The items that are wrapped and in the main area (not in the fridge/case) all have the ingredients clearly listed on the back. They carry bread, sandwiches, amazing Japanese and French pastries, soft serve ice cream, coffee, tea and sodas. Everything is ultra fresh and absolutely delicious. We tried the croissant, chocolate croissant, chocolate cornet (GET IT), chocolate cake and a cream puff. Nothing is too sweet which allowed the quality of the ingredients to shine. Staff referred to an ingredients list while checking for the nut we avoid when we asked about items in the case and we were comfortable. Don’t hesitate to try this place if you can!”
@lattelauren who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Chameleon Cafe Akron

“The chicken salad croissant was amazing.”

Allegro – Vegan Bakery & Sandwich Shop

Location: Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

“Everything here is plant based! It was amazing to walk into the bakery and tell our daughter she could pick anything she wanted. Even better than that, everything we got was delicious and tasted as good or better than what we would find at a ‘normal’ bakery. How did they get the croissant so perfect! Punkin got to have a croissant for the first time. She loved it!”

Dog Tag Bakery

Location: Washington, District of Columbia

“Dog Tag Bakery is one of our favorite bakeries in DC. They are certified 100% nut-free. It’s posted several places throughout the bakery. They have so many delicious treats and sandwiches. We always get a box of treats to bring home. Favorites include their chocolate croissants, cake pops, brownies, and pop tarts. We also love their message of supporting military veterans and their families!”
@jennthoman who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Berlin Baking Company

Location: Berlin, Germany

“Coffee is great! croissants are large and the quality is good but not the best in the city.”
@nutfreefun who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Épi Boulangerie Patisserie

Location: Köln, Germany

“Wonderful French bakery with no peanuts. Walnuts are used only for walnut bread, not too many almonds, pistachios, and hazelnuts, but they’re definitely present. I safely had Kaiserbrötchen, baguettes, and Croissants here—YUM! One little warning: the person I spoke with was not sure where the chocolate was sourced and potential contaminants so I would still avoid the pain au chocolat.”
@nutfreefun who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Les Pâtisseries de Sébastien

Location: Berlin, Germany

“Incredible! Everything is labeled! the quality is wonderful and the baker is so kind! Definitely try their croissants and baguettes!”
@nutfreefun who manages peanut and tree nut allergies


Boulangerie-Pâtisserie Terroirs d’Avenir

Location: Paris, France

“This was one of the best croissants I’ve ever had. She said there was a chance of cross contamination since they have nut pastries but for what it’s worth I didn’t see any almond croissants which personally made me feel better. And I also got a baguette to go for my train ride.”
@gracekennard who manages peanut, tree nut, and poppy allergies


Location: Paris, France

“I was very hesitant to try any pastry items in paris but i found this place with a very helpful menu which listed out most allergen warnings. each item is labeled with icons what it contains and i was able to work with the staff to go over ingredients and safely try the butter croissant. it was AMAZING and overall a great shop, very allergy aware. there was a lot of cross contamination and the staff was able to use gloves to serve me instead of tongs, and helped me understand what i could / couldn’t have. very delicious!! I was AMAZED”
@rachelkrams who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Bretteau Sébastien

Location: Paris, France

“This was my favorite part of my Paris trip! This was the only place that had safe pastries for me. While it is not exclusively nut-free, there were no pastries with nuts in the same case as the pastries I ordered. The staff assured me that the pastries I got were safe for my allergies. I got a baguette, croissant, and Swiss brioche!”
@nallergy who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

Du Pain et des Idées

Location: Paris, France

“Got a warm fresh croissant here! It was so good but definitely a chance of cross-contamination given they have nut pastries. He said the plain croissant was nut free though”

Helmut Newcake

Location: Paris, France

“I went to a different location, but that one is not on spokin so I’m doing my review for this one. Everything on their menu is gluten free, which is why I went. I got there in the afternoon, but they still had a lot (if not all) of their products in stock. I talked to the lady behind the counter, explaining that I am allergic to a lot more than just gluten, handed her my French allergy card, and she checked every pastry they had!!! She had an ingredient table like the other bakery I mentioned, but looked at it herself. I probably could’ve asked to see it but I trusted her. I ended up getting a cream puff (very messy and sweet, but I thought it was delicious), a salted caramel eclair(same story just a little less messy and sweet), a croissant, and a pain au chocolat. I had never had any of these things before, so I was really excited. When I asked my mom to try a little of the p.a.c. she said it tasted good, like a normal one(my mom has no allergies) Overall an amazing experience!”

Land&Monkeys Turenne

Location: Paris, France

“I have never been more excited for something than I was after finding dairy free pastry options. Coming to Paris to study abroad it was my goal to find as many dairy free alternatives to known Paris foods as I can. Of course a croissant and pain au chocolat is a Paris staple. They had sooo many options; dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan options. They have their full allergen list on their website so I checked it out beforehand to get an idea of what I could eat because they do use nuts in their products. I also got a cinnamon roll which was okay but probably wouldn’t get it again. Going to miss this place when I have to leave.”

Caffè del Doge

Location: Venezia, Italy

“We went here for a quick coffee and snack prior to dinner. My son was able to eat the croissant with apricot and a resin croissant without any issues. It’s a hidden local bakery and the staff helped me identify which food had nuts and which one to avoid.”
@priyan who manages peanut and tree nut allergies

La Fenice

Location: Positano, Italy

“This family owned bed and breakfast is amazing. I notified them of my celiac disease before we arrived and they were incredibly prepared. Every morning they made an incredible breakfast including a basket full of packaged gluten-free breads, croissants, and crackers to accompany the fresh eggs, fruits, meats, cheeses, and more. We ate like queens at this place every morning and ate fresh sandwiches and salads for lunches on a few days too when we stayed around the property. One of the few bed and breakfasts with a private beach. The only con is the amount of stairs at the property. We had an ocean view and our own private terrace for the most reasonable price we could find in Positano. This place is an absolute steal.”
@andglutenfree who manages celiac and an oyster allergy


Craft Coffee & Pastry Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam, New Hampshire

“100% gluten-free bakery in Amsterdam. You will likely have to wait in line but it is well worth it as you’ll have some of the best options in front of you. I had the chocolate croissant and apple pie croissant, which were gluten-free and dairy-free. They were SO good, huge, and impressive for those who weren’t gluten-free. Make sure you check their hours as they are only open a few days of the week, but this is a perfect spot for a morning pastry and coffee.”
@alutin who manages celiac and tree nut, milk, shellfish, vegetable, fruit, and grain allergies

Margo’s Amsterdam

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

“Vegan bakery with incredible pastries! There are some nuts but the staff were knowledgeable and offered to get me a croissant from the back.”

Joey’s Café

Location: Ambleside, United Kingdom

“Completely vegan cafe with a huge array of dairy-free baked goods! Multiple locations at the Claife Viewing Station, Wray Castle, and the Beatrix Potter house! Each location varies on what’s available but it was all delicious and safe! Got to experience my first chocolate croissant and lemon tart! Got some soft serve at Wray Castle and pizza!! Wray Castle is their biggest location if you’re looking for a solid lunch. My whole family (non of which have allergies) found something they enjoyed on this menu. I find the best way to keep track of their hours is their insta @joeys_cafe . This is a place I would go out of my way to grab treats at again!”
@katiekress who manages a milk allergy

“Incredible selection of organic and ‘free from’ products, including coconut yogurt, variety of flours, and tons of Schar products, and brands from all over the EU. Great place to find gluten-free croissants, cookies, and gnocchi!”

Sophie Sucrée

“This bakery is completely vegan so they were amazing with my dairy allergy. (Not sure about other allergies.) This is the only time I’ve ever had real pastries (croissants, scones, spinach and feta savory pastries, etc) so it was amazing!!”
