We were just strolling down the street, minding our own business, on the busy streets of Alexandria in Sydney. Then we turned a corner, and unexpectedly faced a small piece of paradise with a strong smell of freshly brewed coffee.

This amazing cafe garden was built in 2012 into the remnants of an old heritage-listed warehouse. It is almost like a little town. There is a mixture of freshly brewed take-away coffee stands. The lovely Industrial style coffee shop, The Grounds, is the centre of attention for this cafe garden.  Walk around and explore and you will find more restaurants, deli’s, bakery’s and even activities for children.
