Husk and Honey have an entirely gluten free and grain free menu, which must make eating out for Sunshine Coast Coeliacs and their friends or families a breeze.
There is an eclectic uniqueness spilling out from every possible place of this cafe, I’d describe it as quirky vintage with a homey kind of feel, which I absolutely adore. The Nambour locals love Husk and Honey, come lunch time, the café becomes packed very quickly, with some even booking ahead of schedule.
The beans used to make the coffee here is touted as some of the best, sourced from a Mr Tim Adams who in 2010 won the title of Queensland Barista champion. We can confirm that it is a great little blend to be had with a sticky cake for an afternoon pick me up.
Staff are welcoming and deliver your meals with an infectious cheerfulness. Another MsBrulee shout out, this time to Leah who works here, we had a nice chat about some other great places to dine at. Thanks for the recommendations we’re definitely going to take up on them the next time we’re in town.
These framed artworks are a charming and innovative way of ordering.
The raw unedited images taken on this day have mysteriously disappeared from my hard drive, so for the life of me I cannot recall what else went in this smoothie other than banana, it is sweet and frothy with two other ingredients, one was some kind of nut.
The lasagne sheets are made with a gluten free substitute and taste just like your usual wheat-based sheets. The lasagne filling is composed of plentiful beef mince, saturated in an oniony, garlicky tomato sauce and layered upon with creamy béchamel. I quite like Ash’s choice, which has him donating a decent portion of his lunch to mine. Thanks hun J and on the side for health purposes is an undressed salad of lettuce, cabbage, beetroot, carrot, pepitas and sprouts.
I prefer my main savoury meals to be filling and these pancakes certainly are that, two massive rounds of the chickpea pancakes, plus a generous serving of roasted pumpkin, carrot, sweet potato and zucchini with a dollop of thick greek yogurt and sprouts round off this satisfying meal.
A very moist, cocoa heavy treat with chia seeds scattered throughout. Apart from the icing, I don’t detect much sweetness, which isn’t bad but when you’re expecting cake, and receive something that resembles bread instead, you can’t help but feel a little let down, despite that, it would make a great slice of gluten free chocolate bread. If you prefer less sugary cakes, like Ash does you will L-O-V-E this.
Husk and Honey like many cafes in the Sunshine Coast close around 3pm, around that time children are still being let out from school, people generally have lunch, sip on a latte whilst cracking open a book. Why they close up shop when there is so much activity elsewhere is peculiar to a Sydneysider like me.
Happy holidays everyone,
‘Til next time, peace out.
Monday to Friday 8.00am – 3.30pm
