On Thursday my friend Emma took me to The Grounds of Alexandria for a cute lunch because I've never heard of it before. It's actually a knocked down warehouse in the middle of an industrial area that's been all prettied up with flowers, trees, vines, a fountain and a petting zoo. They're famous for their coffee and their little secret garden area and of course the food there.
I wore just a casual coordinate because we were going out shopping afterwards and it was warm sunny day which was so nice for the middle of winter !!

Emma showed me around and I got to see all of the flower store which also had amazing dyed coloured cactuses and roses, as well as organic homemade jams and granola mixes which is on my list of things to buy next time I go !! Their ATM machine was located inside an old telephone box which was so cute.
The pastries, tarts and breads were all so amazing, and my favourite part was the lemonade stands where they had rose flavour and tea flavour. Emma and I got one of each and then shared because we couldn't choose which flavour we liked better. Because it was school holidays it was really busy and the wait for the restaurant was an hour long we ended up just getting the garden BBQ food which was just as amazing. We had the most amazing burgers ever.
I really wanna go again already it was just that nice. Everywhere you looked people were relaxing, sketching, chatting, eating and just having a really awesome time and it's definitely on my list of places to go on a regular basis !! Afterwards Emma and I went on a huge shopping spree in the city and I got a lot of cute things that I'll be posting about soon !!
