Mother's Day Cafe Idea: Gluten Free For Me

Date of Review: 1 May 2013
How many times have you looked at a menu in a cafe and known with confidence that you could order anything you liked and it was guaranteed to be gluten free? There is only one cafe I know of and it is in Maroochydore, Queensland.
Gluten Free For Me was developed in response to the diagnosis of coeliac disease in the owner's son. Sick of being told "no you can't have it", this cafe was created with "can" in mind. As well as a cafe open for breakfast and lunch, there is also a large selection of gluten free groceries and you can also order them online!
The fresh green and white decor of the cafe spills out onto the courtyard in front and welcoming smiles greet us as we walk in. It is a very hard choice, but I opt for something I've never been able to have since being diagnosed with coeliac disease - waffles!
Although the size of the plate does not match my ravenous appetite, the waffles are crisp on the outside and chewy in the centre. They come with berries and syrup which drips through them.
The coffee here is good - even my coffee snob friends agree! And once we're done, I peruse the glass cabinets, oogling over the gluten free cakes and slices. I take a large slice of carrot cake home.
Cafe prices are very reasonable and even though the cafe is clearly gluten free, my non-gluten free friends have said they would definitely come back!
TOTAL SCORE: 26/30 or 87%
