Inspire Cafe has gone completely Gluten Free, and only accountants are invited.
An accounting firm has set up in a cafe… but not any old cafe, an entirely gluten free cafe where professionals are encouraged to come and share their ideas on the mathematical world over a soy latte and coconut flour cookie.
Inspire Cafe in Newstead has nabbed Jeff the Chef — a local caterer — as their head chef who’s now cooking an entirely gluten free menu for the local business community.
Apparently there is no other cafe in Brisbane where like minded people can meet up to network and drink coffee during business hours without being disturbed, so if that’s something you’ve been daydreaming about from your local Starbucks, this place is for you.
“‘Networking’ can feel artificial, but when you’re all in the same environment, drinking great coffee, it’s what you do naturally,” Inspire Cafe owner Ben Walker says.
If the gluten free situation is the only thing turning you off, Jeff the Chef says not to worry — the dishes were created with non-coeliacs in mind and do not compromise on taste.
The cafe also offers meeting rooms and co-working spaces for business to utilise while they’re enjoying their lunch. Coeliac Australia has even been invited to take part in the new initiative.
Inspire Cafe is located at 32 Doggett St, Newstead 4006.
