The Grounds of Alexandria



Today I paid a visit to The Grounds with two of my best mates. I've been wanting to go to for a while but it's really difficult to fix a time when the group is available. With my school friends, we have a long tradition of catching up after every semester but it's getting harder as we have more commitments now than we did as 5 years ago.

Anyway, we picked The Grounds this year because we've all seen too many pictures from this cafe on Instagram and other social media so we wanted to see what the raving was all about.

We arrived around 1pm which looked like a very busy peak hour. There was a bit of queue for the tables so we followed suit. Soon after, we realised the line was for people wanting to eat inside and there was a shorter line if you ate outside. The weather was nice and cool so we figured it'd be better to sit out rather than waiting for a table inside. So we got takeaway-

Smashed avocado with feta, tomato and mint ($9.50)
Roast marinated chicken breast ($11)
Falafel wrap ($10.50)
Pineapple, watermelon and passionfruit smoothie ($8)
Super chocolate, hazelnut shake ($8.50)

I went for the falafel because I've never had falafel before. The mint yoghurt kept the wrap soft and moist. It felt like a really huge wrap to finish but it left you feeling satisfied :P


Lunch was quite short compared to the time we spent walking around, as you can tell from the pictures below :) 

















Overall, great place to hang if you have a spare couple of hours. It's definitely worth a visit because it's more than a cafe, it's got the green, flowers, water and even animals! Now I know what the hype was all about :)

We'll be coming back for sure, but I would probably eat in next time because menus are slightly different.
