About The Grounds of the City:
Nearly three years in the making, this coffeehouse-inspired inner-city hub is set to transport you back to an era of old-school charm and reignite the heart and soul of Sydney’s CBD.
Trading from dawn ‘til dusk 7 days per week, offering breakfast and and all-day menu daily with late trading on Tuesday through Sunday nights.
Allow our hosts to find you a cosy table, and settle in with a menu that features something for everyone. You’ll find our coffee sommelier at The Barista’s Bar ready to take you through a tailored coffee experience, and our baristas expertly serving up The Grounds house-roasted espresso and filter coffees. As our tea lady roams the room with her trolley, you’ll find it adorned with fresh coffee to top up your bottomless cup, our selection of ethically sourced teas and cakes baked fresh daily in The Grounds Bakery & Patisserie.
Prefer your morning caffeine dose and breakfast on the run? Take a moment to yourself while you wait as our shoe shiner tends to you. After all, they do say you can tell a (wo)man by their shoes.
It’s time to stop, slow down amid that city rush and get social again,
The Grounds of the City is at your service.
