“If cafés were beauty queens, this one would take home the crown.” — Time Out
Step out of the hustle and bustle of Sydney CBD and be transported back to an era of old-school charm in our Parisian-bistro-inspired cafe and restaurant.
Open every day, The Grounds of the City transforms from buzzing cafe with a sumptuous all-day menu to moody dinner restaurant and bar at night.
Allow our hosts to find you a cosy table, and settle in with a menu that features something for everyone.

Seats are limited, please pre-book your High Tea at The Grounds of The City at least 24-hours in advance to make sure that you don’t miss out!
Really nice decor and great ambiance. Amazing menu and great coffee. We were celebrating our anniversary here and they surprised us with a little strawberry tart. What’s there not to love about this place?!
The Grounds of the City serves delicious food, great coffee, and if you need one a wide range of alcoholic beverages. I’ve visited a few times for coffee, but once I went inside for a sit down meal I was sold. The staff were lovely, and the menu was great. Highly enjoyed.
Coffee there was superb, and the food (brekkie bowl plus the smoked trout) was quite amazing. The Grounds provides an experience hard to find elsewhere.
