The Grounds of Alexandria *

"Located in an old pie factory from the early 1900s,
this inner city sanctuary embraces an industrial aesthetic.
With a holistic approach to food and design,
the kitchen uses sustainable practices 
to grow produce for their seasonally inspired menu."

Well worth the wait for a table at this superb venue
housing a coffee research facility, organic garden, cafe & bakery!

Browse through the current season of flowering crops in the front gardens, 
where chickens are clucking and fresh produce are blooming.
An assortment of fresh summer fruits, traditional lemonade 
and an incredible range of granolas are also on display.

house cured ocean trout
soft boiled eggs with dill creme fraiche, pickled cucumber, 
micro herbs and sourdough
(one word: amazing. a work of art by sight and on the palette.
perfect combination of sour, creamy & umami!)

The Grounds Breakfast Board
double smoked ham, avocado, fresh heirloom tomatoes,Persian feta, two poached eggs, house made pesto and toasted sourdough
(bit of this and a bit more of that.
everything one may wish for breakfast!)

my dear friend P, who is ecstatic at the thought of another business idea
stay tuned...
