Founded in 2020 by Sandra Hudson, Hudson’s is an entirely gluten-free bakery offering everything from lamingtons to breadsticks and sticky caramel slices to a cult following that often struggles to find baked goods that fit their dietaries.
After working as a consultant and then partner at another popular Sydney bakery, Sandra was encouraged to set up her own entirely gluten-free baking range by her friends, who – gluten-intolerant or otherwise – couldn’t get enough of her triple-chocolate cookies. Years later, the Hudson’s Bakery market stalls – at Carriageworks and Cambridge Markets – had gained such a following that setting up a separate space became a necessity.
After a brief stint on Old South Head Road in Bondi, Hudson’s has permanently settled on Oxford Street. The scent of just-baked gluten-free loaves wafts through the light-filled space, and a white table on the street crowds with people tucking into gut-friendly goods. Think chewy sesame bagels, sweet and savoury muffins, a range of pizzas and rich chocolate brownies, which invariably sell out every Saturday at the Carriageworks market stall.
Batch-brewed coffee and tea is served for cookie-dunking purposes, and shelves are stacked with packets of crunchy bark crackers and gingerbread biscuits. Eager to help its gluten-intolerant customer base enjoy good food at home, Hudson’s also offers takeaway dishes such as lasagne, stout pie and a seasonal crumble.
