Brisbane’s Best Gluten-Free

What is it that makes a café a favourite? The coffee, the atmosphere, its location, whether it’s kid-friendly or dog friendly… It’s all important, but more often than not, it’s the menu!

For some though it goes beyond food appreciation to a serious health matter. For example, coeliacs used to be quite restricted when it came to eating out but now there are cafes and restaurants dedicating themselves to entirely gluten-free offerings.

And with an estimated one in 70 Australians living with coeliac disease, we think that will make our list of Brisbane’s best gluten-free offerings very popular.

Marche du Macaron

As the name would suggest you can buy macarons here which are traditionally gluten-free, but this gorgeous Ashgrove café also offers breakfast, brunch and lunch, with absolutely everything on the menu gluten-free. From breads and croissants to pastries, tarts and cookies… can take your pick! As well as the Ashgrove cafe, there’s a Gordon Park location too.

See the menu here.


Originally specialising in donuts, NODO extended its menu and has become somewhat of an institution for those who love healthy, wholesome, gluten-free food. With locations in Newstead, the CBD and South Bank, they bake all their breads and donuts fresh daily and trust us when we say they definitely pass the taste test. NODO is all about putting the fun back into wholesome food.

It’s Mirchi

This specialty Indian restaurant in Paddington offers up healthy Indian curries and even gluten-free, carb-free naan. That’s right, gluten-free naan! There’s nowhere quite like it in Brisbane, we highly recommend you give it a go.

I Heart Brownies

These amazing brownies aren’t just gluten-free… they’re dairy-free, nut-free and vegan friendly! You can grab yours from the Wintergarden kiosk, there’s a Bowen Hills bakery and café, and from inside the Sunshine Plaza in Maroochydore.
