Cafe Free – Neutral Bay, Sydney gluten free *CLOSED

Sydney gluten free, MosmanCafe Free closed in February 2021.

Café Free is based in Neutral Bay in the lower North Shore of Sydney.

Their philosophy is to have something for everyone, but specifically cater for people with coeliac disease, gluten and lactose intolerance.  If you don’t have any intolerances, you will still enjoy the menu, with ‘normal’ bread available (bread being the sticking point for most people who are not gluten free).

Everything that is made in house is gluten free, with most items also being lactose free.  There is no wheat based flour on site which reduces cross contamination risk.

We have visited twice for brunch whilst visiting Sydney. The menu changes seasonally and has a mixture of breakfast options, hot meals and salads, as well as ‘little meals’ all day which would be good for kids or if you just don’t feel like much.

Below is the quesilladas with eggplant (aubergine for the Brits) but you could also have them with beef.  They had a lovely flavour on their own but was delicious combined with the three sides of avocado, sour creme and salsa!

When I was looking at the menu online, I was sure my husband would choose the breakfast pizza as it would combine two of his favourite meals, but apparently it was too early for pizza!  He had scrambled eggs on sourdough (not gluten free) with bacon and a potato rosti (which is gluten free) and was very happy with his meal.

For something more traditional, you could try the club sandwich or the cheese burger.

There is also a good selection of cakes on display if you are after coffee and cake.

We were visiting from Melbourne and found it very easy to get there by bus from Wynyard station, which takes around 20 minutes. It is well worth the trip for a safe and delicious meal.
