The Grounds of Alexandria Cafe
Wonderful ambience, great food and coffee!
Amazing place for breakfast or lunch!
Food was delicious! and love the coffee! Staff are very friendly an helpful.
It's a lovely place. Getting a table was a breeze with booking made ahead of time, we were taken to our table straight away. The team is very helpful and efficient. Coffee is great! We even ordered second round of coffee because it's so good. The big breakfast was great, it's enough for me to share with my daughter. The kids milk shake is so cute it came in a teddy bear glass. So much to see in this place for kids. The shed area looks great too
Beautiful place and amazing food. Staff were not chatty or friendly.
Absolutely amazing! So pleased that we went out of our way to visit The Grounds. We were blown away! The food and drinks were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our time wandering around. Will be recommending to anyone and everyone.
The staff was great! The food was amazing. I highly recommend the mocha.
A very unique place, the different food & drink places all have there own vibe. The food was simply outstanding. If looking for something to do in sydney, check this place out.
Over priced, under served and not worth it. Won’t be going back. Bugs in food, 45 min wait for cold food(that was supposed to be hot). Then sent back as we had bugs one of my friends food. Then she had to wait 45mins again. Bill arrived for $230. 5 meals on it not ours. No apologies. Not the first poor experience there. We all have not go back.
The venue itself is wonderful, a must check out. Be prepared for crowds
Good, lively place with great staff. Food was yummy but servings could've been bigger. Great coffee.
Poached eggs were over cooked and the waitress was rude. The breakfast burger and hot chocolate was delicious.
First time at the Grounds and was very pleased with the experience. Had lunch at the Cafe and glad I booked beforehand due to the number of people. We went on a Monday but it was very crowded. Was able to park the car with the free valet service which was much appreciated. Very nice place but more toilets would be nice! Overall great. Would like to go back at night as it must look very pretty with all the lanterns and lights on!
Nice place but too crowded. Appreciate the waiter in charge for helping us to get the table as soon as we arrived.
Too crowded. Table too small. Cutleries and glasses still dirty. 1 hour time limit - not enjoyable experience
Booked for Melbourne visitors. Initial placing was outside in characterless and fairly chilly area compared to inside. Staff offered inside idf we could wait which we chose to do. Then placed at a 2 seater table in the 'roasting area' so my chair backed up against another customer and no space for anyone to pass. After standing up 3 times in about 5 minutes, I suggested that the waiters go around another way as they had placed me there and I was not prepared to continue standing up and down. Wwe were then offered another table when someone else finished. Again a 2 seater with 2 of us squeezed next to each other on the bench seat and one in a chair. Bench seat inappropriate height for table. Seated next to 2 mums with bubs who were very loud and badly behaved - food thrown off table etc. Thankfully they left not too long after and then we were able to move for a third time to our final table. Had to eventually ask for the high chair and food scraps to be removed. Not really what I have been used to on previous visits to the Grounds and frankly rather embarrassing with Melbourne visitors.
Beautiful place in sydney magical ! Good coffee and food is Nice! Be carreful it’s very noisy
Great for breakfast, atmosphere was excellent, good service and spectacular food. Only downside it was cold inside!
Very trendy and worth going there once for the experience, but not somewhere I would go regularly. Parking likely to be an issue on weekends.
Lost our order so did not receive our food after 40 minutes of waiting.
The staff make this cafe! Very noisy and crowded but great service with decent food. Worth a visit!
Warning, parking is extremely rare, so try to get there by other means or leave up to 45 mins extra time to find parking.
Far too busy and crowded to be enjoyable. Food was good but not worth the over $115 for 1 adult and 3 kids. Unclear as to where to queue up and ended us wasting 15 min standing in a queue only to be old the cafe was elsewhere.
Loved the Aladdin installation as well as the I wish for more cake!
Food and atmosphere always great. Need to regularly check toilets for cleanliness.
Awesome experience of dinning in rostery and garden!
We went for lunch at 1pm. We booked a table in advance but we had to wait however 10 min to be seated. Not a problem!
Food and drinks were delicious , even if the waiter forgot to put one side of polenta chips in the system so we didn’t get them (not a problem again as we were completely full). Ambience is great even if I think no matter if is weekday or weekend it is always a busy cafe. Good for the business 👍🏼
The only things it leaves to be desired was the service maybe it was just because the cafe was very busy but we’ll see next time.
However, the grounds is always worth to visit ❤️
Great food and cakes. We had a fantastic day. It was our first time there and we will be back again.
We chose a very busy day (although I think everyday would be very busy!). Some of the wait staff (female) could have been friendlier--I thought perhaps they may have been overwhelmed by the business, but I did make the comment to my friend "I hope they have friendlier wait staff at my son's wedding next year (which is booked for the Grounds).
My kids loved it. It was their first visit and look forward to many more ;)
Above average food, fresh and prompt. Front of house was accommodating, with attentive service. Value for money.
We all ordered the chicken sandwich and it was undercooked to the point we didn’t eat them and left hungry. One was refunded as one of our party was pregnant and couldn’t risk eating any of hers. Just very disappointing meal and poor quality chicken used and cooking technique. It has turned me off returning again.
The service at the Grounds Cafe was great, however there were a couple of issues ordering one of the meals that required a few exclusions (due to allergies). However when the final meal came, it was great.
I would definitely go again and everything was great. The service was fantastic. My only feedback is the menu could have a bit more variety and the place was extremely noisy where you couldn't even have a conversation.
Love the look, good was nice but when you pay over $23 for shepherds pie you expect it to me bigger same goes for the minestrone. Very loud but that wasn’t a problem.... expensive but to be expected at this tourist Mecca . Loved the atmosphere but parking is bad and it was more crowded than was comfortable
The day i went it was rainy so alot of people were inside so it was quite packed in and not alot of room. Food was delicious alittle overpriced but the place makes it worth it. Walking around the grounds was beautiful.
Best coffee, food and service. Do yourself a favour and visit this place, you won’t regret it!
Really happy with the service and specially the host.
Service was great at such busy/popular cafe. Food was pricey thou
Nice environment with delicious cakes!! And the nearby is suitable for photo shooting!
Very busy and overwhelming - to be honest I probably wouldn’t go again because I just don’t like how busy it is. That said, we went to the cafe, and food ambiance was great. We went during the week and had a booking, so didn’t have to wait too long. Highly recommend booking to avoid the wait if you go during the week (no bookings on weekends).
Will come back for sure
