Gallery Kitchen Cafe, Faversham

Back in November I spent a week travelling around Kent, enjoying the coast and seeking out the best gluten free food I could find. First stop was Faversham and the Gallery Kitchen Cafe.

This lovely cafe/gallery is run by a chef who discovered she was coeliac after a career in the industry, and so pretty much everything on the menu is gluten free, dairy free and vegan! Ideal for brunch.

I ordered the kale Bubble and Squeak, bacon and poached egg and my friend Grant went for the Pecorino Rarebit.

Both were excellent, but the kale bubble and squeak was the dish of the day. I’ll definitely use kale next time I make it.

The Gallery Kitchen Cafe had such a gluten free community spirit, something I have never seen anywhere else before. The cafe runs regular positively free from and coeliac support events, including coffee mornings and (in November) a Great British Christmas Pudding Bake Off, fundraising for Coeliac UK – I’d recommend all coeliacs join, I’ve found the app invaluable.

10/10 Gallery Kitchen Cafe, I wish somewhere like this existed in London!

Blighty India Cafe

Last Saturday I found myself in Seven Sisters looking for somewhere to have brunch, when I stumbled across Blighty India Cafe.

Although Blighty specialises in lovely, freshly baked bread, they also do gluten free sliced white so I didn’t miss out on toast with my fry-up.

I went for a full English with gf bread and it did not disappoint. The sausage was removed due to its gluten content but it didn’t matter – the breakfast arrived with a side of spicy beans, 2 fried eggs, 3 rashers of bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and black pudding!

The baked beans were definitely the highlight, especially because I could mop up all the sauce with the bread, a luxury I don’t usually have! The rest was great too, good quality and fresh, up there with the best fry-ups I’ve had.

Should I end up in Seven Sisters again I will definitely be making a return visit to Blighty.
