Growing up in Melbourne food is like a religion. Every important or not so important event centres predominately on the food. Whether it is a catch up with a friend, a celebration or just grabbing a quick bite on the go, food is at the forefront of a Melbournian’s daily life. Therefore being diagnosed with Celiac Disease three years ago was a huge shock and unbelievably overwhelming. I have to acknowledge the fact that being diagnosed as a Celiac has been incredibly difficult at times and it does mean that on occasion I have missed out. However, being Celiac does have one thing going for it, and it is probably something most of us take for granted. It is that unbelievable feeling you get when finding a new little GF eatery. It honestly, for me, is like winning the lottery. As a food enthusiast, I do eat out a lot and whether it is breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner (OK I may have made this one up) or dinner, I am always searching for delicious new restaurant or café finds, that offer genuinely delicious and uncontaminated gluten-free options. In Melbourne, I am spoiled with options, and there has been such an incredible food revolution here over the past couple of years which means that most restaurants or cafés offer something on their menu that is gluten-free. This means, that to really stand out above the rest, the food at a café has to be incredible, and their staff has to show a clear understanding of the dreaded cross-contamination to make it on to my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne list. The following five places are not in any particular order, because honestly, it depends on the day, my cravings, and how recently I have been there. So, without further ado, here are my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne… at the moment!\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.fifthchapter.net.au%20\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eFifth Chapter\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWith a long wall of exposed brick and a significant industrial window entrance, this modern and trendy café feels like it has been ripped out of the meatpacking district of New York City and placed into the suburbs of Melbourne. The buzz that fills the room of people catching up over a meal creates a fantastic and energetic atmosphere. Friendly staff makes it super easy to ask questions and highlight the fact that you are legitimately gluten free. The Mexican bowl, which I find it hard to go past every time I am there, is incredibly delicious and filling. I have never been with anyone who has been disappointed.

With hearty comfort food like pasta, chicken parmigiana and roast lamb, Fox in the Box offers foods often out of reach for the gluten-free.

Each time I've visited, there hasn't been a huge number of patrons, and it isn’t the most attractive restaurant.

Growing up in Melbourne food is like a religion. Every important or not so important event centres predominately on the food. Whether it is a catch up with a friend, a celebration or just grabbing a quick bite on the go, food is at the forefront of a Melbournian’s daily life. Therefore being diagnosed with Celiac Disease three years ago was a huge shock and unbelievably overwhelming. I have to acknowledge the fact that being diagnosed as a Celiac has been incredibly difficult at times and it does mean that on occasion I have missed out. However, being Celiac does have one thing going for it, and it is probably something most of us take for granted. It is that unbelievable feeling you get when finding a new little GF eatery. It honestly, for me, is like winning the lottery. As a food enthusiast, I do eat out a lot and whether it is breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner (OK I may have made this one up) or dinner, I am always searching for delicious new restaurant or café finds, that offer genuinely delicious and uncontaminated gluten-free options. In Melbourne, I am spoiled with options, and there has been such an incredible food revolution here over the past couple of years which means that most restaurants or cafés offer something on their menu that is gluten-free. This means, that to really stand out above the rest, the food at a café has to be incredible, and their staff has to show a clear understanding of the dreaded cross-contamination to make it on to my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne list. The following five places are not in any particular order, because honestly, it depends on the day, my cravings, and how recently I have been there. So, without further ado, here are my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne… at the moment!\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003ca href=\"http:\/\/www.fifthchapter.net.au%20\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eFifth Chapter\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWith a long wall of exposed brick and a significant industrial window entrance, this modern and trendy café feels like it has been ripped out of the meatpacking district of New York City and placed into the suburbs of Melbourne. The buzz that fills the room of people catching up over a meal creates a fantastic and energetic atmosphere. Friendly staff makes it super easy to ask questions and highlight the fact that you are legitimately gluten free. The Mexican bowl, which I find it hard to go past every time I am there, is incredibly delicious and filling. I have never been with anyone who has been disappointed.

Foddies staff has an excellent understanding of the ins and outs of allergies, intolerances, and also the risk of cross-contamination.

My Top 5 Gluten Free Cafés in Melbourne, Australia

by Georgia Stephenson

 

How great is eating out for the soul? Growing up in Melbourne food is like a religion. Every important or not so important event centres predominately on the food. Whether it is a catch up with a friend, a celebration or just grabbing a quick bite on the go, food is at the forefront of a Melbournian’s daily life. Therefore being diagnosed with Celiac Disease three years ago was a huge shock and unbelievably overwhelming. I have to acknowledge the fact that being diagnosed as a Celiac has been incredibly difficult at times and it does mean that on occasion I have missed out. However, being Celiac does have one thing going for it, and it is probably something most of us take for granted. It is that unbelievable feeling you get when finding a new little GF eatery. It honestly, for me, is like winning the lottery. As a food enthusiast, I do eat out a lot and whether it is breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner (OK I may have made this one up) or dinner, I am always searching for delicious new restaurant or café finds, that offer genuinely delicious and uncontaminated gluten-free options. In Melbourne, I am spoiled with options, and there has been such an incredible food revolution here over the past couple of years which means that most restaurants or cafés offer something on their menu that is gluten-free. This means, that to really stand out above the rest, the food at a café has to be incredible, and their staff has to show a clear understanding of the dreaded cross-contamination to make it on to my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne list. The following five places are not in any particular order, because honestly, it depends on the day, my cravings, and how recently I have been there. So, without further ado, here are my top five gluten-free cafés in Melbourne… at the moment!

Fifth Chapter

With a long wall of exposed brick and a significant industrial window entrance, this modern and trendy café feels like it has been ripped out of the meatpacking district of New York City and placed into the suburbs of Melbourne. The buzz that fills the room of people catching up over a meal creates a fantastic and energetic atmosphere. Friendly staff makes it super easy to ask questions and highlight the fact that you are legitimately gluten free. The Mexican bowl, which I find it hard to go past every time I am there, is incredibly delicious and filling. I have never been with anyone who has been disappointed. The Fifth Chapter seems to always get the balance of flavours right, leaving their customers satisfied. Customer satisfaction is apparent by the number of people who flock to their doors. This being said, I have never had to wait more than 10 to 15 minutes for a table, as their turnaround time is smooth and easy-going.

399 Centre Rd, Bentleigh VIC 3204
Open everyday 6.30am - 5pm 

 

MoM Café

A very Instagramable place, MoM Café is aesthetically stunning with exposed brick, light timber and white details giving it a Scandi vibe. Adopting a healthy philosophy to its food, this small health café uses health professionals and chefs to create food intended for healing the body and mind. Each item on the menu specifically relates to improving some part of your health, e.g., immunity, digestion or sleep. This gorgeous café not only intends to improve health but also caters to a variety of dietary requirements and needs. The food is absolutely delicious, and their Miso Eggplant Bowl is to die for!  

388 Malvern Rd, Prahran VIC 3181
Open weekdays 7.30am – 4pm, weekends 8am – 4pm

 

 

Foddies Café

Having recently moved to its new home in Camberwell, Foddies Café is a beautifully renovated and cosy café. This café is a welcomed addition to the neighbourhood due to its offerings of gluten-free and other allergen-friendly foods. Having a sister who is lactose intolerant and on a Low FODMAP diet, this is a great café to get to, if you are catching up with other allergy friends or family. Foddies staff has an excellent understanding of the ins and outs of allergies, intolerances, and also the risk of cross-contamination. Burgers, fries, donuts and even take away frozen meals, are just some of the things this little café has to offer.

393 Camberwell Rd, Camberwell VIC 3124
Open weekdays 7am – 3.30pm, weekends 8am – 3.30pm 

 

Jake and the Beans Talk

Jake and the Beans Talk is a beautifully renovated café with exposed brick walls, raw timber finishes and a large outdoor dining area that cleverly closes in during the colder months with a Vergola, large outdoor blinds, and outdoor heaters. The staff here are very accommodating and understand the importance of being Celiac and the impact of cross-contamination. Half the menu is gluten-free is a terrific plus, and the wait staff shows a clear understanding of cross-contamination when asked. I have not been with anyone who hasn’t liked the food! The zucchini fritters are so yummy that I can’t visit without ordering them!

Fox in the Box

Fox in the Box boasts an entirely gluten-free café with a restaurant that specialises in dietary requirements. With hearty comfort food like pasta, chicken parmigiana and roast lamb, Fox in the Box offers foods often out of reach for the gluten-free. Their delectable Pudding Noir is a must for any chocoholic, as it truly heavenly. Atmosphere and décor here are probably the only negatives. Each time I've visited, there hasn't been a huge number of patrons, and it isn’t the most attractive restaurant. With this being said, however, Fox in the Box is a hidden gem that is definitely worth venturing to! And the search for amazing gluten-free cafés goes on…
