SaraBella’s Gluten Free Café in Chilliwack has created an array of seasonal treats and beverages for the holiday season. Enjoy!

5 go-to gluten-free gifts for the foodies on your list!

Chilliwack café is a must for gluten-free celebrations

With the heady scent of ginger in the air, a rich and creamy eggnog latté in your cup, and beautifully decorated desserts to delight your guests, there’s no better time than the holidays to visit your local bakery and café.

When those treats come gluten-free and nut-free but full of amazing flavour, it’s even better.

That’s exactly the goal Katherine Taylor set for her team at SaraBella’s Gluten Free Café, where guests will also discover a delicious array of vegan options using no animal products.

After seeing a Celiac friend struggle to find gluten-free food that actually tasted good, Taylor began adapting some of her favourite recipes to share, using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. She’s since grown the menu to include an array of breakfast, lunch and snack selections, in addition to SaraBella’s scrumptious baking.

“We love to develop new selections and flavours – it’s fun for us, too,” Taylor says.

So just in time for gift-giving season, here’s a few ideas for those “special someones” on your list – from stocking stuffers to the perfect ingredients for a sensational basket.

(And if you happen to also indulge your own holiday wishes, don’t worry – we won’t tell!)

  1. For your host or hostess:

    SaraBella’s biscotti is perfect paired with a package of locally roasted coffee, available in light, medium or dark roast – ideal for a holiday hostess gift. Not a coffee fan? Try the vegan hot chocolate mix.

  2. For some family fun:

    Gingerbread is a go-to holiday favourite, and SaraBella’s offers its oh-so-yummy gluten-free version ready for decorating. Of course, if you just want to savour a treat without the work, they’re happy to oblige.

  3. For that Wow! effect:

    Sometimes you just need a sweet treat to enjoy or add that finishing touch to a gift. Meet SaraBella’s peanut-free brittle and their peanut-free “peanut butter” cups, crafted with the award-winning soy-based Wowbutter. So good!

  4. For something new:

    What’s new at SaraBella’s? Vegan cake donuts in a selection of yummy flavours, including chocolate and eggnog. And remember, you can always pick up their gluten-free flour to craft some of your own new creations at home!

  5. For a custom dessert:

    Make your holiday gathering even more special with a custom cake or dessert. It’s best to allow 48 hours notice, and be sure to bring your ideas. “Every order we do is individual. I love to chat with our customers to learn what they’d like to see for their special occasion,” Taylor says.

While shopping, stop by the coffee counter for one of SaraBella’s seasonal drinks … maybe a creme brulée, eggnog or gingerbread latté, or a hot chocolate and s’mores mocha.

Can’t decide? Pick up a gift card – it’s always the right flavour.
