Finiky Fresh Moves to West End

West End! Don’t get your gluten-free pastries in a twist, there’s a new gluten-free Kitchen in town that just took fresh treats out of the oven. Brisbane’s first solely gluten-free patisserie in Taringa, Finiky, has now moved to new digs in Boundary Streest, West end, bringing to life a myriad of treats perfectly tailored for those sensitive to food allergens. Finiky aspires to eliminate worry, provide choice, and produce a gluten, dairy, soy, sulphites, yeast, preservative and additive free treat, that, and I quote, doesn’t taste like cardboard. At yeast they put some thought into how palatable their gluten free options would be! We’re sold! If you think a store that sells an entirely gluten free menu sounds corny (because corn flour – geddit? #sorrynotsorry), wait until you witness the array of baking that owners Lisa Trickey and daughter Jamie have crafted for your enjoyment, including – but not limited to – cakes, tarts, biscuits. Finiky also focuses on the quality of the coffee they serve, with allergenic options that aren’t your regular run of the milk. They offer a choice of almond and rice milk, deviating from the usual (but losing popularity) non-dairy soy option. And, just when you think Finiky couldn’t be more enticing, they also offer casual dining options for breakfast and lunch, if a baked treat won’t fulfill your sans-gluten hanger. Breakfast granolas, salads and wheat-free sangers, here we come! Finiky’s West End opening hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 7am – 2pm, and Sunday 7am – 12:30pm. Finally, somewhere we can have our gluten-free cake and eat it too! Words by Lucille Burkitt
