Wellzones GF – 100% gluten free bakery and cafe in Camberwell *closed*

100% gluten free bakery in Camberwell

2020 update – Wellzones GF never reopened after their summer closure and the store has been re-let.

Wellzones GF Bakery is the new kid on the block in Camberwell (Melbourne) which is owned and run by a family with a coeliac son.  They were finding it difficult to find safe and delicious gluten free food for him, so decided to create their own!  The family and staff are all very friendly and keen to get your feedback on what you would like to see on the menu.

They have a small but perfectly formed range. You can buy a selection of amazing cakes, fresh loaves of bread and light lunches (such as sandwiches, soup, curry, pies or salad) which you can eat in or take away.  Many of the products are also dairy free, refined sugar free, vegan or vegetarian.  Onion and garlic free options can also be organised if you are low FODMAP.

They are already listed on the Melbourne 100% gluten free page but this post provides a more detailed review.

You can see the array of sandwiches and cakes in the front cabinet with more options on the menu board.

I have tried quite a few cakes and they have all been amazing. My top picks are the mocha-choc cupcake and spiced pumpkin bread (half shown in photo).

The baked donuts also get a special mention.  They have a lovely flavour with gorgeous icing and the sprinkles add a little crunch and make them look beautiful!

As I work in the area, it has literally changed my life to be able to swing by for a takeaway sandwich!  My favourite sandwich is the chia seed bread with chicken pesto filling, but the quinoa bread sandwiches with a variety of different fillings have all been substantial and tasty.  Kids size sandwiches are also available.

With the cold weather, there are also winter warmers available.  I particularly love the chicken and lemongrass soup.  It is chock full of goodness (chicken, noodles, egg, tofu, tomato, coriander and more!) and was great when I was getting over a bad cold.  I got a takeaway and mixed it all together back at work and it was really filling.

The pies are not pastry pies but a take on shepherd’s pie with chicken or vegetable ragout filling with a mash topping, so much healthier than pastry!  I decided to also get the super salad with an A-MAZING peanut dressing. I had half the salad with the pie and the other half that night for dinner as it was very substantial with potato, tofu, egg and more.

Newer to the menu are fabulous power bowls, with a cauliflower rice base, roast pumpkin and salad, topped with either almond crumbed chicken or teriyaki tempeh – both taste great!

Wellzones GF is walking distance from the Epworth Rehabilitation hospital and the Coles Head Office at Tooronga, so if you work or visit there, you could easily pop out to get something to eat. Most of the menu is available on Uber Eats, so check if they deliver to your area if you can’t get to the store yourself.

I honestly have enjoyed everything I have tried and am very grateful to have such a great option close by.
