The owners of EDGE Aquatics in Baranduda have branched out with a new coffee shop, located between the swimming centre and tennis courts, which specialises in gluten-free options.
Coffee on Sage owners Di and David Lake are excited to take on a new venture with the swim centre remaining closed until October 4.
Daughter Kiya Sumpton, who was living in Queensland and recently returned to Baranduda, is helping run the business which has been operating for almost three weeks.
The business sells a range of cafe options including sandwiches, sausage rolls, homemade baked goods, as well as hot and cold drinks.
Mrs Sumpton said there’s a great range of gluten-free options prepared fresh daily including slices, muffins, bread, and the popular chicken schnitzel rolls.
“The gluten-free community is massive here and a lot of people have come out of the woodwork,” she said.
“My sister and I are both coeliacs and find it hard to get our hands on gluten-free products.
“Most of the gluten-free products are baked fresh on site.”
The business has received great feedback from the community.
“People have said that a coffee shop selling gluten-free products was needed,” Mrs Sumpton said.
“We are getting a lot of walk-ins because people are out and about on their exercise and are picking something up to take home with them.”
The shop uses Zoi coffee beans from an Albury supplier and the bread, rolls and a selection of pies and sausage rolls come from the Tallangatta Bakery.
The business is currently looking for junior staff to work on weekends and is open 7am to 3pm from Monday to Saturday.
