6 Eastern Suburbs Cafes with GOOD Gluten Free Bread
Are you tired of paying extra for gluten free bread at breakkie, that turns out to be from the supermarket?
Here’s a roundup of cafes serving gluten free bread that doesn’t taste like cardboard…even your non-gluten free company will want a bite.
1. Nelson Rd Tuckshop (Bondi Junction)
Nelson’s house-made GF bread has a touch of sweetness and tastes like a dense, seeded wholemeal bread (without the funny caramel colours you get in ‘wholemeal’ GF breads from the supermarket). A good crust on this one, too.
SO good buttered.
2. Bondi Wholefoods (Bondi / Surry Hills)
House-made Paleo Bread – a meal in itself, loaded with eggs, almond meal, zucchini, red capsicum, olives + sun-dried tomatoes. Cake-like in texture, but there’s no added sugar, so goes perfectly with your eggs.
3. Lox Stock & Barrel (Bondi)
One slice of this super wholesome Sprouted Bread is all you need. Don’t expect it to taste like your usual bread though; sprouted bread is very chewy and heavy because the grains are still intact…something you either like or you don’t.
…or if you want GF bread that tastes like, you know, bread, they have that too. House-made and good with sweet or savoury toppings.
4. Bellagio (Waverley)
All the bread here, GF included, is from Bellagio’s sister cafe, Nelson Road Tuckshop.
5. Shuk (North Bondi)
This Israeli joint makes everything from scratch; you’ll like their GF bread if you’re after a lighter one for mopping up eggs and dips. Not too dry, not too moist – just right.
Henley’s Hazelnut Meal Pumpkin Bread hiding under there. On the sweeter side, you’ll kind of feel like you’re eating cake (fine by me!). I personally prefer this plain and without the savoury toppings.
Here’s to good gluten free bread! Any other spots you’d recommend?
