The Grounds of Alexandria

I finally got the chance to check out The Grounds of Alexandria. Nerd Burger a.k.a Will and I caught up with my good friend Hayley and her family.

The Grounds is known for its laid back atmosphere. It’s a homely farm setting in a busy city location. They have monthly markets full of delicious goodies to eat and handmade one of a kind items. It’s a perfect setting for a weekend catch up with friends. 



As you make your way through to the cafe, you will walk past stands with mouth watering cakes and drinks. I tried the Sweet Rose Lemonade. A refreshing beverage even on a chilly Sunday morning.



Delicious pastries. You can purchase 3 for $20.00. I recommend the Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart. The pastry is flaky and the chocolate is smooth with a hint of bitterness.






Fresh homemade donuts. Cooked to order. They have plain with cinnamon, Nutella filled and raspberry filled donuts.



                       



                       


After a brief stroll through the markets, We decided to order. I ordered The Breakkie Board. This has two free range poached eggs, chicken chipolatas, grilled asparagus, smoked salmon, fresh ricotta, toasted sour dough and a cherry tomato and basil salsa.

I must admit I was a little overwhelmed at the amount of food that came out. It was well presented and delicious.  The perfectly cooked poached eggs and asparagus certainly added a nice freshness to this hearty breakfast.





The Breakkie Board $22.00


Chefs Breakkie Pan $19.00


Will ordered the Chefs Breakkie Pan with a side of Lamb sausages.  This has poached eggs, which is served with button mushrooms, kassler bacon, chicken chipolatas in a hollandaise sauce. It also comes with a baby Italian loaf which Will loved. 


                           



Belle the Pekingese

As we were eating out breakfast, I noticed that across from us was a well behave little dog. As a dog lover I just had to say hello. Belle the Pekingese was a darling and so placid. Gizmo could learn a thing or two from this little pooch.

The Grounds is not only known for their fresh produce and homely surroundings. They are also know for their famous pig Kevin Bacon. We took a quick stroll to say hello to Kevin and all his farm friends.



I highly recommend The Grounds. If you are ever in the area, make sure you pop in and check it out. My only suggestion would be to head over early as it does get very busy. There is street parking and a limited amount of parking spaces in the premises.

Good to see you again Kath. Belle is so cute, her little face makes me want to make faces at it. And donuts-yes please!

mmm~~~ I love Grounds, just not so much the wait.
But there are enough to keep me entertained while waiting, but scared to indulge on too much and not end up having enough tummy space for the food at Grounds! haha!
