The Grounds of Alexandria
The Grounds café—run out of a former pie factory in the warehouse district of Alexandria—makes coffee, juices, smoothies, baked goods, and rustic breakfast and lunch dishes with equal care. Order a "flat white" (a cross between a cappuccino and a latte) or a "piccolo" (mini latte)—there's also a coffee tasting board and a deconstructed iced coffee—with your turmeric-spiced porridge or Big Brekkie (spicy chorizo and serrano ham with braised white beans, smoked peppers, halloumi, avocado, poached eggs, and thick slabs of house-baked toast). After brekky, peek into the roastery next door and admire the enchanting garden and event space, complete with a coffee cart, barbecue joint, plant stall, and petting zoo, home to the Grounds' resident pig, Kevin Bacon.
