A word from The Little Aussie Bakery & Cafe
While we are 100% gluten free, our influences are Australian and European, and very much from the home kitchen. We prepare our meals from scratch. While healthy eating is a big part of what we do. We believe that this does not mean that the enjoyment of food is in any way compromised. We are all about comfort foods, slow roasted meats, meat pies, pasta bakes, lamb sandwiches, colorful salads, and dessert cakes that are to die for. And you know it really doesn"t matter whether you have food allergies or not. You are in for a treat.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Very unhappy with service and treatment by staff. I would not recommend anyone going there for dining in."

  • "The Little Aussie Bakery & Café was the #1 rated gluten-free dining recommendation on "Find Me Gluten-Free" and there's a reason. The food was incredible! My wife has Celiac Disease and must have gluten-free food. This was her destination dining experience. The Little Aussie is 100% gluten-free and absolutely delicious! We ate there twice simply because it was that great. The Sunday Brunch was a revelation in great food. We went back 2 days later for lunch and had an even better meal. They make awesome desserts that don't look or taste like gluten-free! It's a little off the beaten path next to Brackenridge Park, but worth seeking out."

  • "My visit to the Aussie Bakery & Cafe, even after the NPR report, was a pleasant experience with the tone being set by the person behind the register who was beaming with a beautiful smile & great attitude. After being at another restaurant up the street & around the corner which was chaotic, at best, it was so nice to walk into a laid back chill atmosphere. The service is good. The food, expeditiously served, was close to perfect as eggs are difficult to cook & bacon was missing to this otherwise great meal for those who might be watching the figure or expectant mothers.As I have zero expectations of any of my experiences and always pleasantly surprised, The Aussie Bakery & Cafe IS a neighborhood gem that pleasantly surprises! Keep it up!"

  • "I went to this place on Sunday and ordered off the brunch menu. This place was so cute. A little house converted into this bakery/ cafe. You order and pay at the counter and select any table you like. We were then greeted by our waitress who was from Baltimore and recognized my east coast accent right away. We were given the super strength coffee which was fantastic and homemade gf biscuits to start. They offer count cream for the coffee incase of any dairy allergies. After our bacon egg and cheeses arrived one of the employees came around with a basket of the most amazing goat cheese, onion biscuits; they were warm, gooey, and just fantastic! "

  • "The Little Aussie Bakery and Cafe is totally committed to gluten free dining. It's quaint and intimate but has very specific hours. Rita and John are the essence of the establishment."

  • "It isn't often a restaurant mets the needs of the gluten free and the food is still wonderful but Little Aussie does it hands down. The food is wonderful and full of flavor. The salad dressings are fresh and light, the waffles chewy and crispy and delicious. Definitely worth the drive from Austin. And that doesn't include the desserts which are a story all by themselves."

  • "I went to this resteraunt because I have a gluten intolerance and was a little apprehensive about how the food would taste. The food was amazing and my family thought the food was very flavorful. Sediment lay coming back."

  • "I have no idea who our waitress or waiter was! Three people seemed to help but I had to ask for napkins and for refills. That's frustrating when your trying to have a nice meal. Getting up from table and searching for someone isnt service. Who serves pizza with no Parmesan cheese? The meal was ok but Dessert was delicious actually the star...as we sampled a few beauty's in the display case. Would I go again... Yes, but I hope next time the service improves. If your not going to serve refills put the pitcher on the table I will serve myself Pizza Hut Style!"

  • "The Little Aussie Bakery and Café has a great gluten free menu especially brunch which can be difficult to find. The food was delicious and hot even our husbands(who are not gluten free) enjoyed. This is always a treat for my friend from Houston."

  • "I came here with my friend whose gluten free and it was both our first time. Everyone was really nice and provided great service not to mention the food was delicious whether you are a gluten-free person or not. I also enjoy the atmosphere; they had great music playing like jazz, blues and swing. Though I didn't get to use their free WiFi I know that I will go back to work from there sometime."

  • "We went for brunch and it was fabulous! Quaint little place that's got about 8 tables total. Everyone is so friendly like they're bringing you into their (tiny) home. The brunch menu didn't offer a huge selection but there's something for everyone. Now for the food. I've only been gluten free for almost 4 months, I desperately crave a burger bun. The buns at this place are PHENOMI! If you've eaten gf bread before, chances are you needed a tall glass anything to gulp down that dry crumbly mess. Little Ausdie's buns are soft, spongy, moist.. I'd go as far as say better than the real thing! The quiche was yummy too. Flaky goodness. The best thing is, I can buy these at some HEBs. They even ship!Trust me and just eat it. My new fave place!"

  • "Totally gluten-free bakery and cafe! And to boot, the food was wonderful. Try the quiche. It was some of the best I've ever had gf or not. We also had a very good pizza (on a Tuesday evening, in spite of something I read that said weekends only) that had a crispy crust. And don't forget the decadent cakes!"

  • "Not sure why you need a reservation. No wait service. No alcohol lisense. Should have advertised that Saturday is only pizza night. Very disorganized at register where you have to order your food and pay in advance. Not a very good way to run a business. Very poor mom and pop operation. They didnt even acknowledge our reservation but again why even make one it certainly wasnt necessary. This was a special birthday that was ruined. :("

  • "It's a quiet little spot with a focus on serving great tasting food to finicky people. They do gluten-free with flair. Only EVOO. The mango chicken is the best chicken I've had in forever."

  • "I REALLY love going to this restaurant. The only reason I gave the service 3 stars was because there was only one waitress on that night. She was EXCELLENT so no issues there but she was just trying to serve 6 tables by herself. I know they're looking for help so hopefully once they hire more waitresses or waiters that will improve. Food is always excellent!!!!! I reserved through Open Table and there was even a "reserved" sign on my table when I went in. How cool is that? :)"

  • "Great food, but somewhat disorganized & SO expensive. We will go back, but not as often as we would if the prices were more reasonable."

The food was wonderful from the salad to the meat pie to the dessert. Perfect! The wait staff was also very friendly and helpul. We ate there every day while in town. They will also ship some of their items to you! Wonderful place!"

  • "Garlic butter for breakfast for(cold)rolls? Not appetizing.Sale offered to orders for bread but not applicable instore to first time visitors. Was told to go online and place an order. I wont pay for shipping and pay more. Sorry. Cake was awesome! Bread is good. French toast was good. Prices are high for french toast and and egg sandwich at $10 each with no sides. Service was slow, server forgot about us - I had to go look for napkins. Not offered water or refill on coffee. If I were local I would def go for cake. Website offered free loaf of bread to first time visit.When I mentioned all played dumb. Conveniently, removed from website after. If I had a good exp I might be int in ordering."

  • "I was a bit sceptical when I was told about this place but I thought if I could find somewhere with decent gluten free bread it would be worth it. It is a very cute place small but it has personality. The food was good and you couldn't really tell that everything was gluten free. I got some sandwich buns to take home and if you toast them with a little butter they come out crispy and delicious best sandwiches I've had since becoming gluten free. The service was a bit slow, there was only one waitress but she was very energetic and pleasant,overall this is a great place for all of us with a gluten intolerance."
