Contessa Balmain is a bustling, exciting cafe in the heart of Balmain on Darling Street. With a menu that blends brunch classics with Italian staples, it’s the place to go for a decent and well priced meal, with excellent coffee and service to match.
Run by Marco and Rose Adoncello, Contessa Balmain is generally packed, so it’s important to get there early. Inspired by the best of New York chic, many of the dishes come from Italian recipes passed down through generations of the Adoncello family.
Contessa’s menu brings something special to their table including everything from the Nutella French toast to the cute froggicinos. They even include a ‘boozy brunch’ menu to lighten your day and ease you into the afternoon. The Bloody Mary is excellent, especially when paired with the corn-fritter hotcakes.
It’s a real treat to be amongst the energy and excitement of Contessa Balmain. It’s the whole package: good food, great vibes and top-notch service. Having gone through a recent renovation, Contessa boasts a hip and sophisticated vibe to match.
