'THE GROUNDS' What SYDNEY does best!
Oh my goodness ! What a delicious breakfast experience we had this morning. Attention all Sydneysiders, Facebookers, Tweeps and Peeps... The Grounds in Alexandria is brand new and awesome ! Their website is not quite up and running yet so perhaps this post will do! The re-fit of an industrial space made so exciting with a huge outdoor area, amongst old sleeper raised beds filled with organic herbs, citrus, veges and other plants. The space filled with young families, children, babies , all loving the chicken coop in the vegetable garden. Inside, a space cordoned off by a glass wall, housing the state of the art coffee roasting machines. Mostly raw face-brick walls, plants and baskets hanging up on levered pulleys,, beautiful lighting, and at the back a fantastic coffee station (one of two) or brew bar with the custom La Marzocco, clover, syphons and drip filters. The place was buzzing with lots of people and the service was excellent. Most of us had breakfast, all of us had their coffee served in bright green cups/saucers from Germany. Overall an amazing experience unlike any other in Sydney. The address is 2 Huntley street Alexandria, NSW.
