Gemma Simply Italian, Carlton

The most delicious, home made, potatoes gnocchi and it’s gluten free! All their sauces are gf too and are made with cherry tomatoes – they have ragu, eggplant, pork. Highly recommend this place for dinner! http://www.gemmasimplyitalian.com.au Did I get sick: NO Strict with Cross Contamination measures: Yes I’ve been here a few times and they…

Byron Bay

I love going to Byron Bay. I’ve been going twice yearly for the last 8 years & I can’t get enough. It’s always been the case up there, that cafes and restaurant owners are into healthier foods which makes it easy when you’re a coeliac. This trip, I headed up for Bluesfest. It was my…

Fina’s Vegetarian Cafe

Fina’s Vegetarian Cafe – 268 Victoria Street, Richmond This unassuming cafe/restaurant is on Victoria St, right next to Pho Chu The. Heading out to dinner with my friends, one’s vegetarian and I’m coeliac, it’s sometimes overwhelming trying to find a place to eat. My friend Lucy took us here and wow, it was just amazing! The menu…

Coffs Harbour 

Happy Frog Cafe – Park Ave, Coffs Harbour I found heaven in Coffs Harbour! An amazing concept of a blend between shopping and lunch – this place does a roaring trade throughout every hour of the day and for good reason. The shelves are stocked full of healthy, fresh and a lot of gluten free…

Newcastle, NSW

Scotties Fish Cafe – Scott St, Newcastle, NSW A few days in this lovely town and we found a cosy little place near to water called Scotties. We drove past during the day and once we found out that the fish and chip shop, Jeremiah Jones, closed at 7pm we called and asked if they had GF….

Pope Joan, Brunswick East

Most of the menu was gluten free but as soon as they said they use a separate fryer for chips, I knew what I was having… hot chips of lunch! They have GF bread but use the same toaster, so I wan’t willing to risk it. Other items were sardines on toast, guacamole with corn,…

Platform Espresso, Glen Iris

  I usually try to avoid breakfast at cafes – the whole ‘yes we have gluten free toast in the same toaster as normal bread and the same butter/knives’ really annoys me and so I find it best to stick to coffee and avoid the hassle. Platform Espresso was really accommodating and the waiter kept…

Moroccan Soup Bar Deli, Lygon St

The little sister to Moroccan Soup Bar, located on Lygon St, Brunswick East. They have heaps of home made dips, marinated Moroccan goodies like olives, artichokes and preserved lemons. The owner came out and guided me through which are gluten free and all the staff are really knowledgeable and helpful. They only have one item…

Henry and the Fox 

They were so thorough, brought the manager out who read through the whole menu and ticked off what I could eat/couldn’t. The options were: salad ($18), pork (which I’m not a big fan of unless it’s in dumplings) and GF pizza ($14 + $5 for the base). I choose pizza… if you haven’t noticed all…

Port Fairy & Warrnambool

Coffin Sallys – Port Fairy: Delicious ingredients are used to top all these pizza’s. Set in the back on the shop, in a brownstone building and wooden shed out the back – lovely, warm decor and lots of shared tables, this place is the best for a casual dinner in Port Fairy. They are knowledgable…

Yarra Valley

Melettos & Stones – Yarra Valley A beautiful setting, with gluten free cider (no cross contamination) and a decent menu that is clearly marked with GF options. Sadly, the options include nothing substantial for lunch apart from a steak or whole fish. The rest of the menu is delicious pizza (no gf option for a…
