Freshly made pancakes, still warm and wafting sweet smells of cinnammon and sugary dreams were not the kind of thing I expected to be able to buy in the small holiday village of Woolacombe, North Devon.
Absent mindedly scouring the board with a taste of envy, I was shocked when I noticed the magic words: Gluten Free Available.
Without a second thought, I ran in to find that not only did this place make gluten free pancakes, but they had all the knowledge of contamination of the importance of keeping everything gluten free separate. GJ's Pancake Bar in Woolacombe has now become my new favourite place.
With a range of sweet and savoury to choose from on their menu, I couldn't get my head around the idea that this tiny little shop would provide gluten free treats!
Although the menu states that you may have to order the gluten free batter in advance during peak season, this little business is more than happy to help.
I chose a simple option with maple syrup, but with more extravagent ideas including the "Tailender" which includes a small donation to a dog charity in the price and "The Amsterdammer", I will definitely be back for more!
GJ's Pancake Bar is situated in South Street, Woolacombe. They are featured on the Coeliac UK website and you can see the shop's website here.
