Bright and surrounds – there are currently no known 100% gluten free venues in this area.  Contact us if you know differently!

Quite a few Bright cafes have gluten free marked on the menu. A follower has recommended Wild Thyme cafe – it is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant with GF marked up but does have normal bread/wraps and uses oats. Their website states all raw and baked sweets are made in house; gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free (but I have not enquired about cross contamination).

    I can attest to the excellence and safety of Liena’s in Daylesford. I’ve eaten there three times with no issues.

    Liena herself is indeed coeliac, and brews her own GF soy sauce as well as making everything from scratch safely. 100% recommend.
