The Grounds of the City

Sydney CBD, Sydney, New South Wales

Price: $$$$ - $$$$
Bistro, Modern Australian


From the team that brought you the most Instagrammed cafe in Sydney (The Grounds of Alexandria) comes little sister The Grounds of the City. Bursting with charm and character the decor is vintage, elegant, recycled timber features, antique fixtures and even resident shoe-shiners. The Grounds brings all the best bits from a bygone era, with a menu of homely cakes, homemade delights, juicy steaks, sustainable seafood and quick take away options. It is more than just a cafe, it is an opulent dining experience for all to enjoy and don't forget to pack a camera.
