The Windsor's Afternoon Tea

at the Gluten Free Expo!

The Windsor is delighted to bring its iconic Afternoon Tea to this year’s Gluten Free Expo. The grand hotel – which has graced Melbourne since 1883 – has been serving Afternoon Tea for 136 years, the longest-running in the city. Blending tradition with modernity, the hotel is this year proud to debut Pastry Chef Felix Goodwin and a dedicated GF Afternoon Tea, the first hotel to offer a pastry chef focusing exclusively on GF guests.


Following in his father’s footsteps, Felix specialises in GF cakes and desserts, a result of being diagnosed as coeliac in early 2000. Felix has worked at restaurants including Donovans, Saigon Sally and BKK, and was last at Sunda. He now works with The Windsor on their GF offerings, including a series of bespoke celebration cakes which can be viewed at Stand 43.
