Gluten Free 4 U to open bakery in Belmont for all your guilt-free indulgences

To celebrate the grand opening, you can score top-notch gluten-free eats and treats for 50% for the entire day.

For those with dietary restrictions, like coeliac or gluten intolerant, eating out has never been more accessible than it is now. We’re truly in the golden age of eating out thanks to Geelong’s buzzing foodie scene and the prevalence of menu options and designated venues that can accommodate everything from allergies to intolerances.

One such place that’s earned a strong reputation across the region for its top-notch options is Gluten Free 4 U, an Australian-wide hidden gem for anyone who is coeliac or gluten-free and looking for a bakery-esque feed. Locally, you could find it in Geelong West, but it’s also got bakehouses in Melbourne, Traralgon and Ballarat, as well as a few spots across Queensland.

Keep up with the latest local food and booze news here.

With a simple mission to provide the very best quality gluten-free baked products (literally all the local bakery favourites sans the gluten), the beloved business is moving from Pakington Street and opening a new and improved venue in Geelong to meet the high demand for gluten-free treats in the regional city for those living with coeliac disease.

Taking over a shopfront on Thomson Street in Belmont, Gluten Free 4 U will open the doors to its Belmont location on Saturday, October 1 and will be celebrating with some cracking first-day offers.

The store will be offering 50% off storewide for the entire day (from 9:30am-3pm), $50 credit to the first customer in line at the opening, and 20 free cupcakes to the first 20 people in line. Those deals taste mighty fine to us.
