MerakGF The Gluten Free Shack

Gourmet Gluten Free Food

Creating beautiful tasty foods, cakes, & coffee that everyone can enjoy...


About us

Merak GF The Gluten Free Shack is family owned & run café that specialises in Gourmet Gluten Free Foods (including egg, dairy & gluten free (GF) options).
Our journey began several years ago due to family autoimmune issues. With a talented Chef in the family, we worked hard to create a cake that was both delicious & gluten free. We loved our GF cakes so much that when we lost jobs during the first wave of Covid (like many others) we realised that we had the perfect opportunity to put our family talents together and open a small local café.
With our passion for great tasting food and personal experiences with many food sensitivities, intolerances and allergies, we set out to create a humble little venue for everyone to enjoy. 


Our uniqueness is in our name....

Merak 'is that feeling of bliss and the sense of oneness with the universe that comes from the simplest of pleasures. It is the pursuit of small, daily pleasures that all add up to a great sense of happiness and fulfilment.' 

We hope that your experience at Merak GF is one of those small pleasures throughout your day that brings you a 'great sense of happiness and fulfilment.'

 What we do

At Merak GF you can enjoy a range of delicious Gourmet Gluten Free Foods from our all day breakfast, lunch or Friday & Saturday night menus.

We have AMAZING coffee and our absolute speciality is our DELICIOUS GF cakes, all freshly baked by us! If you love our cakes, we also bake & prepare beautiful event cakes for a variety of occasions and you can also pre-order a GF and/or VE Grazing Box (enquire about catering) & many other delicious GF treats. 

All meals and foods at Merak GF are house-made and gluten free (and many egg, dairy & GF options).

Gluten Free Groceries - we also stock an assortment of GF and/or egg, dairy, soy & GF products.

We also stock WILD BAR essential oils, jewellery, gifts and crystals...

Our Coffee

Coffee is important! Which is why we use Coffee Mio Espresso Beans which are expertly roasted by a family run business in Melbourne. The Mio Espresso Signature Blend pulls a thick golden crema and is an incredibly smooth blend which is enjoyable for most palates.
