The Grounds is a café and coffee shop in the Alexandria area of Sydney, Australia. What makes this place such an inspiration to me is how it combines a garden and hens directly at the source of where the food will be eaten. So, you not only get to enjoy the food, fresh roasted coffee, and atmosphere, but also walking and sitting amongst the herbs and vegetables being grown - and the hens laying eggs. This is a concept that speaks to my heart because it combines some of my favorite things in one unique business idea. I would love to do this here. Tell me you wouldn't love to enjoy some coffee, or some of this beautiful, fresh food...
One of my favorite blogs is from Australia-based food photographer and stylist, Katie Quinn Davies. Here are some of her photos of The Grounds prior to its opening:
