The ‘Quick Guide - Gluten Free Reviews’ segment is a quick reference guide for people looking for restaurants that cater for coeliacs or people who cannot tolerate Gluten. For regular readers of the blog, you will know my brother (Keith) has coeliac disease and he and his partner Lisa have shared their Adelaide restaurant reviews with us in the past. Now they will be providing us with tips on where to eat out for coeliacs in Adelaide in this quick and easy reference guide.
Name: Eggless dessert café
Where: 162A Goodwood Road, Goodwood SA 5034 (08) 8272 0777
Describe the restaurant: If you love sweets you should definitely give this place a try as Eggless is not your typical dessert cafe. Their menu caters for vegans and coeliac’s – but don’t let the word vegan fool you into thinking the food is healthy or bland. As well as the main menu they also have a list of traditional Asian desserts that are gluten free and vegan also. The menu changes each month so you won’t be stuck eating the same thing over and over again and it’s a nice excuse to keep going back. Eggless only open from 8pm onwards therefore it is a ideal place for dessert after a meal elsewhere or for a date night! Bookings are essential for a group of 6 or more but for less than 6 they don’t take bookings so be prepared to wait.
Your experience: We love everything about Eggless and it is great to go to a place where you can order straight off the menu and not question the ingredients and whether the dish can be made gluten free. Eggless is cosy and small therefore be aware you might be quite close to other tables which is a small issue if you want some privacy. Other than that we can’t fault the menu or the atmosphere. Must try: Asian desserts such as Black Sticky Rice with sundae (GF & V) and Bubor Cha Cha (traditional Malaysian desert with coconut milk – V & GF).
