About Cafe Free
My mum and dad gave me the opportunity to open my own cafe, which of course I jumped at. We always knew that if we ever opened our own place it would be gluten and lactose free. So with that Cafe Free was born, a safe space for coeliacs and their families.
First opening in Mosman 2015, we were the second dedicated gluten free cafe in Sydney to open. Offering a range of breakfast, lunch and cakes for those with coeliac disease. With an ever changing menu there is always something new and different to try. We fast become popular within the coeliac community, happy they could order everything off the menu and eat everything in the cake display.
After 3 years in Mosman we decided that we needed to find a bigger space. So we packed up and moved to Neutral Bay. The bigger space meant we need to be a bigger family, so Peter and Tanya joined us in running the business, adding in their tastes and flairs to the cafe.
We are looking forward to the future and to see where our little safe space can go.

Doing Our Part
Using Fair Trade ingredients means that we can guarantee that the producers can get paid a fair price. Supporting those less fortunate than us is extremely important to us. We use Paradox Coffee's Purple Rain, Tielka Teas, Callebaut Chocolate and Karma Cola among others.
Using Local Producers
We try to reduce food miles by buying from local producers. Some of the local brands we use are: Inside Out Nutritious Goods, Paradox Roasters, Golden Pig & Co. Dumplings, Pepe Saya Butter, Marshmallow Club, Who Gives A Crap and so many more.
Australian farmers keep us fed, but they can have a tough time. This is why we support our farmers like Trunkey's Bacon & Pork, Norco Dairies and The Grima Bros. By buying from the farmers we get some of the best and freshest quality products. Just try our bacon!
We only have one world so we need to look after the one we have, this is why we use Vegware. A vegetable based disposables. All our coffee cups, takeaway containers and straws are compostable. We also recycle and compost as much as possible with our food waste goes to a waste-energy-facility.
