The Creatives Behind Davies St.

Good quality coffee paired with healthy, delicious food.

Based in Rosanna, Davies St. Food Co. is owned by local Chef, Audrey Kuhl and Baker, Maria Althen. Coming together prior to COVID-19 and both having to pivot due to restrictions, Audrey and Maria came to understand that whilst they both provided gluten free foods to their customers through their own businesses there was nothing readily available for the public to access gluten free (and other allergen free) foods so easily.

Davies St. Food Co. is all about bringing great coffee, healthy, delicious and locally sourced food to the local community in which they operate their independent businesses, The Gut Tribe Kitchen and Fretzy Kookie. Having collaborated on many food projects, Davies. St Food Co. is the biggest and most exciting collaboration of all.  

The humble storefront offers take away coffee sourced by Community Roasters with our freshly made gluten-free food offering varying from salads, sandwiches, hot foods and delectable sweets.  With a small range of gluten free groceries available varying from Ardor Food Co and milk from Milk Lab and BonSoy; Davies St. Food Co. is going to cater for everyone.
