Cafe Reviews – Other Australia
Here you will find reviews of cafes based in Australia but outside of Sydney that have gluten free options and are therefore coeliac friendly!
Bright is a beautiful country town in Victoria Australia. I have been there a couple of times and have been impressed with the selection of gluten free foods.
Here are the places which I found to be gluten free friendly.
River Deck Cafe is a cute little cafe which, as suggested by the name, has a deck which looks over the river. They have a range of breakfast and lunch options and usually stock gluten free bread. The reason I say usually is that the second time I went there I arrived towards the end of lunch and they had no gluten free bread left. On my More >
On our way to Bright (in Victoria) earlier in the year we became desperate for lunch at Holbrook. We would have liked to make it all the way to Bright as there are some delicious lunch options there, however we decided to try out Lenny’s Cafe. When I walked in I was skeptical that I would be able to eat anything. Options consisted of make your own sandwiches and the usual burger and chips. Though, I noticed a sign listing some salads on offer, including a chicken Caesar salad. I generally find that Caesar salad’s can be make gluten free More >
Jugiong is a cute little town just off the Hume Highway in between Gundagai and Yass. With a population of about 250 people it may not be the first place on your list to visit, however if you happen to be in the area (which we were when driving back from our weekend away near Tumbarumba) you must go and visit the Long Track Pantry for breakfast, lunch or even just to take a look around!
We were told about the Long Track Cafe & Pantry by family friends who highly recommended a lunch visit and we were not disappointed.
Unlike Sydney, we More >
I was meeting an old school friend for lunch while visiting Auckland for a friends wedding and came across Constant Cravings in Epsom (on the Coeliac New Zealand website). The blurb mentioned that they offer a number of gluten free options including sweet and savoury muffins, pumpkin, date, ginger & maple syrup scones, slices, friands, salads, risotto cakes, frittata, and quiches.
When I arrived I asked the ladies what was gluten free and they said everything but the sandwich. I was so excited but there were so many options it was hard to choose. In the end I decided on the pumpkin More >
I am usually highly disappointed by Tapas, I find that it is very expensive and you often go home hungry. However there are a couple of places who have proved to me that Tapas can be reasonably priced, offer gluten free options and leave you full (sometimes even exploding if the lack of self control goes out the window!) and one of these is the Austi Beach Cafe in Austinmer.
We arrived at the Austi Beach Cafe and were given the option of choosing the $35pp set menu which included 7 courses (including dessert) or choosing a number of plates off the More >
I have visited Leura many a times having lived in Bathurst for four years to attend university. However I had not been back since I moved back to Sydney until last weekend when we were in the Blue Moutains for a work conference.
On Saturday we decided to go for a bush walk and then have lunch in Leura and I was very excited to re-visit The Wayzgoose Cafe. Unfortunately since being diagnosed as a coeliac I can no longer have the signature dish at The Wayzgoose Cafe, Flowerpot Scones, however this gave me the chance to try some of their More >
