Gluten free fish and chips in Northcote – Sweet Salt

Gluten free fish and chips in Northcote, Melbourne

Sweet Salt is a modern family run fish and chip shop with a focus on gluten free and other dietary requirements, such as dairy free and vegan.  It has become a popular venue, recommended by many coeliacs around Melbourne.   Sweet Salt were accredited by Coeliac Australia in May 2018.

The menu is marked up for gluten free and you can even have a gluten free beer 🙂

The food all tastes great – crispy fish batter and well cooked chips and potato cakes – it is amazing for coeliacs to indulge in potato cakes and dim sims, a rare thing even for fish & chip shops that have gluten free batter for fish.


We often get the Gluten Free BFF pack (see photo below), so we get a bit of everything.  This costs $32.90 (2018) and includes 2 sauces (this would cost around $40 if ordered individually).  There are also fresh gluten free salads available, such as coleslaw and greek salad.

If you have room for dessert after all the dim sims and potato cakes, you can have a banana or pineapple fritter.  It is fruit, so it must be healthy!  Or if you like the Scottish idea of deep fried Mars Bars, you can even have a deep fried Snickers bar.  (I haven’t been game to try that…)

They have a dedicated coeliac fryer and you just need to say you require gluten free when placing your order.  As well as the options outlined above, you can also have  scallops/mussels/prawns/calamari, burgers (with a gluten free bun), fish bites and chicken nuggets etc.  Everything is marked up on the menu board as well as the takeaway menus.

There is plenty of room to eat in, as well as two long bench tables out the front. We usually take our dog with us and sit outside and people watch.  If you are taking away, there is a rear entrance on Frederick Street to collect your order.

If you are visiting Melbourne and don’t have car, the 86 tram stops right at the door (stop 32). They also deliver via Uber Eats so there is nothing stopping you getting your fill of gluten free fish and chips 🙂

296 High St, Northcote VIC 3070  Phone: (03) 9482 7158
Check Google for opening hours.
