The three of us had a great lunch. Delicious Salmon Poke, pesto scrambled and a wrap. Coffee really good as was the service. When we were there there was a relaxed vibe (midweek).

A busy cafe in Balmain East. Customer service is fast, efficient and good. Dined in for brunch. Our food & drink were served fast. Corn fritters is a good recommendation by many, topping is sweet and the fried corn cake is crunchy. Sambal (not spicy)...More

Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and

you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens
and shops offering wholefood products and organic
cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates
from the hotels at night. As the place where the
Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has
