Customers with special dietary requirements have been on the rise, and now the Coffee Club Hobsonville is responding to the growing demand by offering as many gluten-free offerings as possible.
“We have a loyal following of customers that come in and order gluten-free meals on a regular basis,” said co-owner Greg Bauarschi. “Since we opened the café in early 2016, we’ve noticed the demand for gluten-free options increasing so we have tried our best to offer a menu that is all-inclusive.
“Customers often ask for gluten-free because they’re dealing with celiac disease – having that option available means that friends and families can continue to eat together, even if one of them can’t eat gluten,” he explained. “Other people simply enjoy the health benefits of eating gluten-free. We make sure that gluten-free menu items are light, fresh and tasty, meaning that anyone can enjoy them, whether they have a health condition or want to avoid gluten for another reason.”
There are a variety of gluten-free meals available at the café from the menu and the cabinet. Gluten-free customers can enjoy smashed avocado, nachos, eggs Benedict, chocolate muffins and more.
Along with the gluten-free meals, The Coffee Club Hobsonville has recently expanded its range of vegan and vegetarian options. A number of drinks and dishes are also dairy free.
“Meeting the needs of our customers is of the utmost importance to us,” said Bauarschi. “We want anyone dining with us to have a great experience and not to miss out just because they need to stick to a restricted diet.”
