A Dublin café has caused an uproar after it has asked patrons to provide a doctor’s note should they want to order gluten-free food.

This happened after a girl asked the café if they made gluten-free pancakes and when they asked her if she was a coeliac she didn’t even know what the word meant. The girl then proceeded to order regular, gluten-rich pancakes anyway.

“From now on, guests who demand gluten-free food are required to produce a doctor’s note which states that you suffer from coeliac disease,” the White Moose Café said in a statement.

“Guests following a gluten-free fad, who don’t even know what gluten is, can eat regular food like everybody else.”
