- Alby’s Gluten Free Bakery, Flinders Park

Of course a venue does not need to be 100% Gluten Free or Coeliac Australia Endorsed to be safe! However it does pose many risks, some venues are simply better at it than others. Being confident in asking the right questions and advocating to the staff involved in preparing and serving your meal is a valuable skill to perfect. I would now like to make mention of a few Adelaide Restaurants that do an amazing job of catering for coeliacs in a shared kitchen and that are very coeliac aware.
