Ka-fey Café launches Newcastle’s first Keto menu
The Hunter St cafe for the people, Ka-fey Café have launched Newcastle’s very first Keto menu!
So, what exactly is Keto?
The Keto Diet is a low carb, high-fat diet, which claims to lower blood sugar and insulin levels shifting the body’s metabolism to burn fat and ketones, instead of carbohydrates.
The menu features ‘chaffles’ (cheese-waffles made from cheese and egg) and other delicious low-carb meals and treats. Each of the menu items has the number of carbs calculated, making it quick and easy to make informed choices.
“Our Keto bowl has been a top seller for over a year, and we thought it was time to bring out a whole menu catering to our keto customers,” owner Lucy Glover said.
“We have talked to so many people living the keto lifestyle and understand their frustrations about eating out at a café. We are excited to give them a choice and make it easy for them,” owner and chef Julian Ciabatti said.
The menu starts at $8 for a. Chaff-emite and even has a Chaffle Pizza thanks to the feedback from their beautiful customers.
