We typically love the Grounds and so I made a booking for my Bridesmaids and I are we confirmed their dresses for the wedding. We arrive 20 minutes early as we were close by and we were told to come back at 10.30. We stood up in the area near the stables restrooms and their was a big empty table that was available. When we went back at 10.30 to check in this was the table we were sat at. This was disappointing as we could have been seated early as the table only needed to be set.
The service was lovely and the coffee + cake were nice. The main meals themselves were all cold for everyone. My fathers pancakes were dry and very dense and heavy. Overall the food was highly disappointing.
I would only recommend for coffee and cakes, definitely not a full service breakfast unfortunately.
I enjoyed the cafe but was disappointed at the lack of simple Childrens options

We are normally advocates for the Grounds but found this visit disappointing. The service was great once we were seated but the quality of food was a let down.
It was our first visit to the Grounds of Alexandria and we found it a perfect place to have a coffee break with a friend or catch up over lunch we loved exploring the grounds and had a wonderful lunch with friends the menu was great our food was delivered together so no waiting while others eat. Oh and the sweets are to die for. yum.... Definitely coming back to visit. Ah must not forget the happy helpful staff, great atmosphere definitely a winner.
Thank you for taking the time out to review The Grounds of Alexandria Peter, we are really pleased to hear that you had such a great visit with us and we hope to see you again soon :)
We had to ask for water after we’d sat for about 15-20 mins. It was warm in the cafe so we asked to put fans on but they didn’t work. Food was yummy
Nice place with good food.
It was not overcrowded because I went there on Wednesday so I don't know if the atmosphere could be the same with more clients.
Thank you for taking the time out to review The Grounds of Alexandria, we appreciate your feedback. We are glad you didn't find it too crowded. We have COVID safety plans in place to ensure all of our customers can still safely enjoy our venue. We hope to see you again soon :)

We appreciate you taking the time to review The Grounds of Alexandria Angela and are glad to note that you enjoyed your experience :)
Visually gorgeous but the food and coffee were very average
Lovely location, great set up, could hang here for days. Food is delicious, but I find desserts are much better than main. I could just come here and drink tea, their speciality cold drinks and eat cake!
We are glad to note that you love The Grounds of Alexandria as much as we do. Thank you for taking the time out to write a review, we appreciate all feedback from customers. We hope to see you again soon :)

My salad was innovative, very tasty and a good size. It was good to see some plant food options as I am not keen on hamburger and chips.

Delicious food. More than enough to share with food left over as we were so full! Loved that the menu was different to a regular breakfast/brunch menu.
Thank you for taking the time out to give The Grounds a review, much appreciated. We are pleased to note that you enjoyed your experience with us over the weekend. We hope to see you again soon :)
Did not like the online ordering. took away the experience of dining out . Might as well had stayed at home and ordered on ubereats... The food was average as well.
Such a relaxing place to eat we had the Avo smash coffee juice and cakes everything was fresh perfect portion sizes we thoroughly enjoyed it and will continue going back
Jess, thank you for taking the time out to review The Grounds, we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience with us over the weekend and we look forward to seeing you again soon :)
I love the place but the food came out very quickly and was cold.
Lovely cakes - and beautiful surroundings. Sadly there were several weddings and we couldn't enjoy the entire area.
Thank you for taking the time to review The Grounds of Alexandria. We are glad you enjoyed your visit :)
We tried the weekend brunch. The food was tasty and portion size was great. Staff was helpful and attentive. The only minus was that the table was too small to fully enjoy the brunch experience. There was no room for all the plates. It will be good to serve the brunch on a bigger table.
A great experience. Breakfast was so so tasty and generous serving size.
Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your visit to The Grounds. We will see you again soon :)
I really enjoyed my time The Grounds of Alexandria Cafe! However, we were put at the end of a long table and we only had three people, considering I booked a week in advance I thought we would be at a smaller, more intimate table in a better spot. I also think the ordering your food online was a bit strange because you had barely any/no contact with waiters or staff, I think for older people or people with specific dietary requirements would have found this difficult. It be nice to see the menu expand to include more meals. However, some things were understandable because of covid.
So disappointed with the menu, there used to be big brekkie but now its all pub food which is really not my thing
Love this place! Everything was wonderful! The ambience, food and service keeps me coming back!
We are so happy you love The Grounds of Alexandria as much as we do. We hope to see you again soon :)
Changed the menu which is disappointing and the staff seem too busy with themselves to offer genuine service
Not happy at all
Took forever for our coffee to be served and they were not busy at all
And once we got our coffee it was cold
Cracking bit of food. Burger was delicious. Tasty bit of cake too for dessert
Overpriced food menu is average
Service is poor
Lovely grounds but that is only it
Terrible experience , we won’t be back
Dirty table water ,got all the orders wrong , asked for a mushroom and spinach omelette but got a salmon with caviar ,Asked for cheese in omelette said they can’t do but bought a extra dish with a plate of feta and charged ,friends had things ordered but missing then cost $115
Elizabeth, Thanks for taking the time to discuss this with us directly. We are happy that we were able to elevate this issue. We hope to see you again soon.
