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 >
About every fortnight my old uni flatmate and I catch up over dinner in order to suppress the withdrawal symptoms we experience from not living together anymore!
When I was living over on the north side of Sydney we used to meet at Sushi on Stanley, a delicious and cheap sushi place in Darlinghurst. However when I moved over the other side of the bridge my friend suggested that we instead meet in Randwick as she knew a great sushi place there. Needless to say, we have been going to Ten Japanese Restaurant ever since.

If you are after a sweet gluten free treat in Chatswood you have quite a few choices, one being Espresso Zarcino in Chatswood Chase.
Espresso Zarcino has a huge range of hot and cold drinks, sweet treats and savory items, however unfortunately they do not have any savory gluten free choices.

Other gluten free options include: lemon polenta cake, japonaise cake (hazelnut and chocolate meringue), peach & passionfruit More >
Someone’s birthday at work is always an anticipated day as everyone else in the office gets to celebrate with them by eating cake. However, this can become a problem when you are coeliac. Fear not, if you or your work mates don’t want to attempt to cook a gluten free cake, Pattison’s Patisserie can come to the rescue!
Pattison’s has a range of savory and sweet gluten free items, among many other amazing looking glutenous ones.
