I’ve long heard about the fame of the immensely popular The Grounds, in Alexandria, but nothing has prepare me for the enormity of what is actually not just an eatery but a whole experience.
From the helpful parking attendant on arrival….
…to magnificent Christmas baking…
Definitely more than I’d bargained for!
There’s clearly a sophisticated system in place that keeps hundreds of people happy, supplied by a bakery….
…..take-away and picnic options….
Even special events are well catered for.
We settled on tea $4….
….and the Dried Fruit dish $14 with Chai infused winter fruit compote
…but others were enjoying other more substantial dishes like the smashed avocado on toast, brekkie burger, home-made granola or superfood muesli.
On a Saturday you may need to wait for a table, but even that can be highly entertaining!
Easy to see why it’s a popular destination for families and those seeking a whole ‘outing’.
