The coffee wasn't bad. It wasn't anywhere near the best i've had in Sydney, and given the wait, isn't something I'll be returning for. The food was excellent. Had a slow cooked beef sandwich with beetroot, lettuce and mayo on sourdough, delicious.
The atmosphere is great. The place is... Read more

This place is massive, it's almost overwhelming, but it was such a pleasure to visit. Coffee was great with lovely service, even grabbed a take away on the way out
2 Long Macchiatos
What a gem of a place had the COE Costa Rican as a pour over great flavour, then I have the beef cheeks sandwich which was just sensational. I will definitely be back well done
Plain garbage. I don't understand the reputation given to this place. Poor food. Poor coffee. So much better out there!!
My first visit today, and I am hooked! What a great place. Very good coffee, tasty eggs, gorgeous setting.
After all the hype was a little disappointed. Was super busy on a Sunday morning, perhaps why my coffee was left not drunk. Great venue though
Fun venue... Just to busy the wait is far to long staff can't keep up.... Espresso was to weak with a nice flavour... Lunch pack fun to share
nice set up......
Be prepared for a wait! Was lucky first time round (5ish minute wait on a weekday brunch period) then swamped on another occasion (forget about dine in wait, was waiting 15+ minutes for takeaways) - more of a warning than criticism though, this place is worth visiting at least once.

Have eaten here a few times now and have never been disappointed - worth the long wait. Today however, we enjoyed the experience even more with take-away coffee and brunch in their enchanting garden. A very inspiring place. Great for little ones too, with chickens and a cute little pig named Kevin.
Amazing. Was busy and we had to wait, but it's worth it. Fantastic set up, pig pen, chook pen and veggie garden is a great idea. An oasis in the middle of suburbia. Will be back!
Fantastic concept with amazing fit out. The food was delicious... Although the service and COFFEE, not so fantastic.
Monday 2:00pm and The Grounds was packed to the rafters still.
It doesn't seem to matter when I show up, they're always busy.
Luckily it didn't take long to find a table for two.
My partner and I were there for lunch and I finished off with a cold drip because... Read more

Funky fit out so a real effort has been made to create a classy joint in the middle if an industrial area.
Piccolo was very well balanced and full of flavour. Really nice. Would definitely come again.
They did lose our order so it was a very very long wait for our simple... Read more
After visiting "lunch" ( food industry show) I headed over to the Grounds, place was mind bogglingly busy, I ordered a lamb shoulder sarnie which was dry and stringy, there was not even a drizzle of oil on one of the slices, the other side a stock standard pesto and some iceberg, the bread was...

This is a great cafe for atmosphere.
Went here one Sunday morning with my wife, it was absolutely packed out with a 30 minute wait, but it was really nice walking and sitting in the vegetable and herb garden out front.
When a table was ready, it wasn't that long of a wait to get our... Read more
Beautiful fitout - every little detail's been carefully thought out (you could just tell). Food was tasty and we we were served promptly. Nothing spectacular about their coffee but is was good nevertheless.

The scale of this place kind of freaked me out. It's just pumping- staff and customers everywhere!
The herb gardens are lovely. Herbs, tomatoes and chickens in the middle of the city. Kids playground too.
Awesome mach of SO Ethiopian guji. Amazing that the quality is... Read more
Big set-up. Super fast for take-away coffee and roast lamb sarnie. Great food but very average coffee. Fricking hot milk burnt me bloody tongue. Must pay more attention, if I go back, to see how long they leave their steamed milk stand. A shame when your coffee tastes like... a rush job. You speed... Read more
1 Flat White
Wow! This is a coffee wonderland! Coffee was really nice and the atmosphere here was phenomenal. It was so busy yet my coffee came out quick and made with care. The staff were lovely. You will struggle to find a better total package cafe in Sydney.
Beautifully balanced blend - a little on the heavy side without too much fruitiness. Just the way I like it. Yum!
Service is the problem. Ignored at the table until we hailed someone; lost our order and had to resubmit it on our chasing up; and about 15 mins for our breakfast to appear... Read more
Long wait,this time an hour.Very glad we waited.The coffees are smooth & consistant & always the right temperature.The food is beautifully fresh.No wonder its so popular
An amazing fit out and good idea. I had the house burger and a few house blend lattes. Food was great and service was quick considering how busy the place was. Coffee was created perfectly, but my criticism is that the house blend is a rather 'safe' balanced coffee. Had a filter single origin and... Read more
1 Latte, 1 Pour Over
Went back today ! What a circus. Ordered a coffee no one on the machine for best part of ten mins. People running around everywhere, badly organized for me. Coffee came at its was cold and miserable. No way to start a Monday I think the wheels are off.
A great cafe! The coffee is superb! The flat white was silky smooth, with a sweet nutty taste. This cafe should be added to the regular visit list.
