Gone are the days where we only considered the taste of a coffee when we think of going to a café. These days (girls especially) also think of the aesthetics and the physical look whether or not we can find an instagrammable spot for our social media feeds. I am so guilty of this which my husband can never relate but just goes with me anyway although with eyebrows raised when he sees girls suddenly take a selfie or worse line up in the most coveted spot with a photographer in tow.
If you’re in Sydney and haven’t been to the Grounds of Alexandria, what are you waiting for? It’s been there since 2012 and has changed different concepts for their seasonal themes. I was there in January and they had this Cherry Blossom Lane, these days they have a different one which I still have to check out.
Our January visit was special for me as I went with my boys, mum, niece and nephew. It was my niece’s shout for my birthday, as if she hasn’t done enough already 🙂 I was super excited because it was their first time to see this place but my excitement was short lived as it was too packed since we came on a Saturday.
The other time I went with my friends was on a Monday and it was beautiful. If you want to only take pictures and avoid the photo bombers, drop by before the stalls will open which is 7am but it will be empty and defeats the purpose of enjoying the food while in the café. Nevertheless, we had a good time although we waited for 30 minutes for our table in the Potting Shed. The food was delectable and we definitely enjoyed our lunch. On our way out we dropped by the Lemonade stall and Donut cart for our take home food.
I was wearing this flouncy white dress from Indikah which I think has a classic Sunday best look. And finally, I used my Fendi By The Way bag in grande size that was a Christmas present to myself. I love the spikes in the handle and the scallops in the edges, it makes the bag look youthful, what do you think?
