GLUTEN free, dairy free, vegan and vegetarian are all terms growing in popularity and demand in today's society and all dietary options available from Bundaberg's newest café, opening today.

Nourish Café is the new face at the front of Earls Arcade, filling the shopfront formerly known as Funkys'.

Owner Judy Plath is a Bundaberg farmer's wife and healthy living activist.

She said the new café brought together all of her greatest passions.

"I'm very, very passionate about healthy eating," Mrs Plath said.

"I get really excited about seeing people enjoy something healthy rather than thinking it's something you're obliged to eat."

Celiac and lactose intolerant herself, Mrs Plath said her quest for healthy food was only heightened by the diagnosis of her four-and-a-half year old daughter Sarah with the same dietary needs.

"It's reached the point where it makes it really hard for us to eat anywhere," Mrs Plath said.

"Then we go down the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane or Byron Bay and there's so many great food options that cater for special diets, but also those that are health conscious and offer organic ingredients.

"When I go down there, I just love what's available and when I come home I just don't have those options here."

Mrs Plath said she found herself at home with her Thermomix cooking up dishes to fill the needs of and nourish her family.

"I was making everything with the Thermomix and tweaking the recipes all the time," she said.

"I started sharing them with my friends and getting good feedback from people saying, 'Hey, this is nice even though it's dairy free', or they'd say, 'You wouldn't know this is gluten free'."

Mrs Plath said one day after she was in Funkys' ordering a coffee, admiring the old style building and she struck up an idea.

There's been a quick one-week turnaround from Funkys' to the newly renovated Nourish.

"We're just doing coffee (today) because we've got to bring everything back in."
