Local Story | Our Favorite Spots In Balmain

By Silvia Wei

With waterfront views, an incredible café culture and shopping beyond the big labels, Balmain knows how to do Sydney proud. On the outside it’s got that whole vintage charm thing going on, but inside there’s all the modern touches we’ve come to love.

The Fenwick

Propped up against the Sydney Harbour foreshore in Balmain East, The Fenwick is one of a multipurpose venue bearing epic views from Barangaroo to Luna Park.  This heritage boat store-turned-prime dining venue preaches all things classic and modern Australian on the food side of things.

Art of Bloom, Balmain

This is not your average florist. In addition to beautiful bouquets, Art of Bloom in Balmain turns flowers into incredible pieces of art. Included in Lana Lichman’s portfolio are wearable floral pieces including a dress made out of flowers and headpieces that put our daisy chains to shame.

Nutie Donuts

The best part is that Nutie bakes with only the highest quality gluten free ingredients and they also have dairy free and vegan options, so anyone with intolerances will leave, full, happy and on an extreme sugar high.

Egg of The Universe

Sydney’s one and only yoga-studio-meets-wholefoods-café will rock your world. Sure, the food at Egg of the Universe will make your heart (and tastebuds) sing and the yoga will blow your mind. But really, it’s the holistic approach to wellness that has got us loving this Rozelle destination.

Soho in Balmain

Soho In Balmain is the place to drink and dine harbourside. Their cocktail list is basically an ode to this inner west suburb and the food is incredibly inventive. Having a heavy Mediterranean influence, the Northern African spices added here and there are a surprising twist on bar-friendly eating.
