Loudons Cafe - Our Cafe

We hope this helps to answer some of the questions that arise concerning some of the more unusual products that we use in the restaurant and bakery.  For notes on suppliers see Our Food.


Gluten/Wheat Free Products Notice

Please note that while we take every precaution not to contaminate our gluten and wheat free products, they are all prepared and cooked in the same bakery area that our bread is made. For most people this shouldn't pose a problem however anyone with a severe gluten or wheat intolerance may be affected by the flour left in the air during normal bread making.



If you have a food allergy or intolerance please tell our staff and our chef will be able to recommend suitable dishes for you.


Himalayan Crystal Salt is mined by hand from deep below the famous mountain range. It is far more easily broken down and absorbed by the body. Unlike table salt which consists only of sodium chloride and additives Himalayan crystal salt contains a staggering 84 minerals and trace elements. Benefits include no threat to blood pressure or arteries and it assists the body’s ph balance.

Sweetener the jury is still out on sweeteners and whilst our policy at Loudons is not to either use or sell products that contain them, we respect your personal preference. The product we are happiest to provide is Xylitol. Sources and extraction vary greatly and the one we have chosen, Xylobrit, comes from birch trees.


Water our water filtration System was installed by Freshly Squeezed Water.


Fairtrade Policy on Tea and Coffee both Pekoe Tea and Artisan Roast, our tea and coffee suppliers, share our priority to give our customers a quality product without compromising the grower. Both can guarantee traceability and know that not only are the growers paid much more than the Fairtrade base rate but that socially just and environmentally sustainable structures are put in place.
