Gluten free sweet options in the past were a little so-so. But the selection on offer these days is rather impressive. And as proven by my husband who will quite easily turn his nose up at the words 'gluten free', he will devour a Nodo donut.
Owner Kate Williams has mastered the wholesome donut. The cafe's signature range are free from gluten and artificial ingredients. Some of which are also free from dairy. Blueberry-lemon cheesecake, pumpkin maple, and Valrhona chocolate appeared on the menu today. And it often changes as they experiment with new flavours.
The cafe at Newstead also serves up a delicious menu of fresh and natural options like avo on house charcoal bread with goats cheese and pomegranate, or a dragonfruit smoothie bowl loaded with fruits, granola and coconut. All to be enjoyed with a custom Nodo roast coffee by Barefoot Barista, or a nourishing super natural shake.
The philosophy of Nodo is simple - eat donuts for breakfast. And judging by the line of customers dressed in gym attire this morning, the consensus is just that.
