Down here it seems there are three types. The "people of Walmart"/typical fat southerner who eats everything and anything. The people who are super sensitive about food, in some way (no sugar, no gluten, no dies) but not all the same. And then me. I'm kind of in the middle. We were at one of the parties and someone had gluten free potato chips. I wasn't aware there was gluten in potatoes.
Melbourne on a whole is known for it's food 'snobbery' in comparison to other Australian cities. 'Something'-free, and various other diets are popular and catered for in most restaurants.
Personally, my family is vegetarian, and I am very fussy about the source of our dairy and eggs. I'm also very erm... obsessive about buying local and cooking from scratch. I don't like most packaged foods.
As for coffee... we buy rain for alliance single origin, which I don't think you can say without sounding like a snob, I'm sorry I don't mean to be, it's just what we buy.

My mom is gluten free. Her diet is legit...she was diagnosed with Celiacs a few years back. Once she got used to it, it didn't seem to be much of an issue. They have so much "special food" out now that she can get about anything she wants, and of course a lot of foods are naturally gluten free.
In my immediate household we just have a regular diet. I try to cook healthy and serve plenty of fruits and veggies. I do love my coffee. No allergies for any of us thankfully.
