We stopped by Pain D'exclamations on a rainy Friday afternoon. We got a raspberry bread pudding pastry and a chocolate croissant as well as two cappuccinos. All was delicious and we really enjoyed spending some time in the cafe. This is a great little spot!

Cafe Chez Nous for one, but you will find more choices by Googling "repas sans gluten La Malbaie QC". Several other restaurants advertise gluten-free options also.
