Sitting proudly along Balmain’s blossoming tree-lined streets are a generous number of dining spots pouring some of Sydney’s best coffee, and plating up tender treats for their patrons.

Many among them are already local institutions, but we think it’s time the word got out for people far and wide to swing on by, enjoy a cuppa and chow down for breakfast, lunch, dinner or any naughty snacking in between. We’ve done the intense work (if you call eating your way through two suburbs a life-ruiner), and come up with our favourite dining order – but that doesn’t mean you can’t commit to a future return for any other mealtime munching.

Being gluten and dairy intolerant and liking coffee is one of life’s great challenges. So many places earnestly tell you that yes they have soy milk, to which you reply; which one? Only to be left to awkwardly explain to the bemused barista that unfortunately you can’t drink their gluten filled milk and will now have to tell your friend to choose another café. Then, just when you’ve decided to give up and have a long black, you find it: that shining beacon of both gluten and dairy friendly goodness. 

 Finding the perfect allergy-free cafè is the hard part. So to help, Posse has pulled together a list of five delicious and convenient coffee stops the allergy-prone people of Wellington.
