Gluten-Free Coffee Shop To Open in Avondale Estates

Good Karma Coffee is taking the old Jack & Jill consignment shop space.

A coffee shop that sells only gluten-free pastries and breakfast foods will open this month in Avondale Estates.

Good Karma Coffee will be located at 31 N. Avondale Plaza next to Avondale Estates City Hall. The space used to be occupied by Jack & Jill consignment shop.

Good Karma Coffee is owned by Sharonda Frazier and will be the retail wing of Weat Free Breakfast Foods, which she also owns. Frazier hopes to open the shop by the third week of June.

 Frazier said the shop will sell Counter Culture coffee and gluten-free foods including waffles, muffins, donuts in several flavors, plus dry mix for products such as waffles. Baked products will also be dairy, nut and soy free.

Good Karma Coffee will operate 7-10 a.m. Monday through Friday and 7-11 a.m. Saturdays. She expects to employ four or five people.

At first the shop will only sell food and coffee for take out but Frazier hopes to create seating eventually.

Frazier started Weat Free Breakfast Foods last fall and decided to create a retail shop because of good response during demonstrations at stores and farmers markets.

Weat Free products are sold online and at Cook's Warehouse in Decatur and Natural Foods Warehouses.

Frazier said she discovered about a year-and-a-half ago that she's gluten intolerant. Her daughter is is lactose intolerant.

"One of my goals is to make the food as delicious as possible so the gluten-free part is an afterthought," Frazier said.

Will you patronize a gluten-free coffee shop?
