If you've experienced a meal at The Grounds (and if you haven't, who are you?), you understand why the foodie mecca has a solid reputation for housing delicious fresh-baked bread and irresistible pastries. And it seems the artisan loaves and insta-worthy baked goods are so sought after, they deserve their own space. Introducing, 'The Bakery' - The Grounds' latest hot-spot where customers can dine-in, takeaway and even attend bakery classes.
The new on-site bakery sits comfortably within The Grounds HQ in Alexandria, which already contains a café, restaurant, kiosk, florist, veggie garden and a pig named Kevin Bacon. Interior Designer Caroline Choker and architect Vince Alafaci of Acme&Co created the charismatic space, inspired by The Grounds industrial roots but with an international bakery flare. The new complex includes a built-in kitchen (where customers can watch the bakers do their thing), black-and-white marbled floors, a grand wooden dining table and retro-designed fridges coated in the signature Grounds green (naturally).
Some of the goodies on the menu include traditional loaves like ash white sourdough, wholemeal, and fig and walnut, but also experiential breads like Charcoal bamboo, lentil du pey and a pigeon seed loaf.
