I’ve been to Sydney three times and made sure we went to The Grounds each visit. It is such a unique outdoor venue and one of our favorites in Sydney!

The Grounds are beautiful and worth a visit for their beautiful gardens. Lots of photo opps. There’s a cafe that serves up coffee; quite a few locals walk through the grounds for their coffee to go. Just a couple yards from the coffee stand is a cafe where you can get sit-down service or get your food to go.

There’s a really long wait time for the restaurants, and food was just OK, but the overall concept of the area is unique and a must go if you’re in Sydney.

Very crowded cafe but the garden is really nice. There are three different places to eat there and I would recommend making a reservation before coming through their website.

Quite possibly the best cafe / restaurant you can find in Sydney. Definitely worth trying the city cafe for an espresso martini

A cafe that embraces nature. The menu is quite limited and it gets very loud and over crowded. The food doesn't live up to its atmosphere and surroundings however is still good.

This was the most adorable brunch spot. Most of it is outdoors under flower covered awnings. Plants everyone. A live pig. "Kevin Bacon" , a friendly Macaw, porch swings to sit on. It was like several little restaurants inside an open air market. Food was delicious and everything is fresh. 45 min wait but lots to wander and look at while you wait.

Drinks are alright but the desserts are sensational! If you ever come to The Grounds, you must try out the massive range of sweets here! Haven't tried the savoury menu but I did see a lot of people ordering savoury dishes. Must be good as well. Price is a bit expensive but nothing unreasonable. If you don't drive you can catch a bus from Central Station that goes directly to The Grounds. Definitely recommend.

The Grounds is probably the trendiest cafe in Sydney at the moment. It's certainly the most talked about and blogged about which is always a sign that the foodies are excited. And we were suitably impressed with its beautiful refurbishment of a warehouse space, produce and herb gardens, baby animals for petting and amazing looking food.
