The Grounds of Alexandria Article Lead - narrow

Restaurateur Ramzey Choker and coffee roaster Jack Hanna join forces to create a marvel - a self-contained 1800-square-metre principality in the rapidly gentrifying industrial wilds of Alexandria. Within the grounds are meandering, sign-posted paths, vast kitchen gardens, a chicken coop, wood-fired oven, spit roast and bar. Inside the re-purposed factory are two large, semi-industrial dining rooms, a dedicated bakery and not one but two coffee roasters cranking out some of Sydney's best coffee. The food runs from bright breakfast boards of smoked ham, Persian fetta, sliced avocado, tomato salad and poached eggs to lunches of door-stopper steak sandwiches and chicken meatballs. The Grounds Burger comes with good, crisp chips and pickles, the meat patty feeling a little mulchy; but pappardelle pasta with slow-braised lamb and peas is comfort food squared. Finish with cakes from the cake counter (and a coffee) and amuse your inner child with a chocolatey old-fashioned wagon wheel.

  • After hearing so much about The Grounds I was keen to go for breakfast. Unfortunately it doesn't live up to the hype. Arriving at 9.30am we waited for 30 mins for a table, once seated orders were immediately taken and the food arrived with 5 mins after ordering. The bacon was cold and the toast was hard, on a positive poached eggs were cooked well. Good to have tried but can't say I'll be rushing back, just too busy which is impacting the quality of food!!

  • As a gardener I fell in love with the gardens as I walked into the premise. My wife is into interiors and equally fell in love with the decor, the ambience, the cutlery/jugs etc. However we had to wait 30 minutes for a table despite going for a Monday lunch, the maitre'd wasn't too friendly either. One toilet only for each sex?? I also waited 5 minutes. Our lunches were amazing though, would go back.

  • Love this place - great for Sunday brunch with the kids. Fantastic vibe, friendly crowd, a rock-solid choice for a slow, relaxing Sunday morning.
