ok this is a bit of a 'niche' topic... sorry. But I have not been able to get an answer from Qantas, and its another 10 weeks before I fly again...

The Adelaide lounge had the best gluten free bread I have ever tasted last time I went in there, but I was for various reasons unable at the time to ascertain its source.

Is there a way to find out? The usual lines of enquiry have given me a ticket number and no other response. Seriously - I need some of this bread - it was totally the best.

Brown, high rise, a bit chewy but just like my mother used to make (except gluten free....) delicious, toasted to a crisp well, good flavour. Nothing at all like the wet sponge experience one can get...

Hi @Brocoli

When did you eat the bread and when did it go away? I went in July and again last week so I might have an answer.

Cheers,

I can't remember and I'm trying to do my tax so I really should not be distracting myself by checking for answers lol... :-( I went to Melbourne a couple of months ago.. So not exactly last week, however I have no reason to believe it isn't there anymore, its just that I didn't have that moment to ask at the time. I would love an answer, I dream about it....

Well, in Adelaide there was this delightful bread which was served near hummus on the buffet. It doesn’t exactly fit you description (although it is damn close) and it wasn’t signed as GF. Was absolute delicious though and isn’t served in SYD or CBR (were I go tons for work). Hope this helps.

I’ve never seen any GF bread other than plain white or seeded in QF lounges. It’s usually stale and/or still half frozen as well, which given that you can’t toast it in the communal facilities, makes it quite unappetising. Just got to hope there’s GF soup to dip it in to warm / soften

We're here to help. But if you ask an honest question from our brains trust, please be prepared for a little follow-up (they're simply trying to help you!) instead of dismissing your would-be-helpers. Being 'busy' with tax is no excuse for bad manners. The other (polite) alternative is not asking questions in the first place.....

Hi @sunnybrae,

This is in regards to you comment that put down another frequent flyer and was kinda passive-aggressive. I don’t believe there was anything disrespectful or rude about @Brocoli’s 2nd comment. It was done in a jovial and humorous way and I was fine with it. He’s probably a nice bloke and this comment is unfair and pointless.

Cheers,

BTW Broccoli, if you looking for the best GF bread, try tip top. I haven’t tried the brown yet but the white is amazing. First time I’ve been able to have a sandwich without toasting the bread in a long time!
