The Grounds of Alexandria
Raising money for local charities including the RSPCA, they have special deals if you car pool with more than 3 people or ride your bike in and they compost onsite and grow some of their own produce. Not the mention the coffee is great!
Located in a former industrial precinct from the 1920s, The Grounds of Alexandria is a landmark coffee roastery, café and sustainable garden known for its abundance of fresh produce and hands-on experiences.
Opened in April 2012, the site which spans approximately an acre within the inner west city fringe suburb of Alexandria, hosts a coffee research and education facility, artisan bakery and a permaculture garden of heirloom vegetables, fragrant herbs, fresh fruit and flowers along with a small animal farm.
