The culinary team, led by Executive Chef Paul McGrath, deliver beautiful wholesome food inspired by their site, which teems with life and beauty thanks to stylist Therese Moussa and horticulturist Greg Bush.
Staff dart from one end to the other, balancing plates of food and drink from various points within the cafe. The swarm of people is never-ending, but is cleverly organised by communication.
The menu offers attractively presented dishes showcasing produce that is seasonally ready and in abundance. Health bowls are a speciality item that The Grounds do well. Pick a warm or chilled healthy bowl from their selection and choose an accompanying protein, such as tofu, chicken or beef. Breakfast items are offered even during lunch service, which will please most, though the ‘Ground’ Burger is very hard to pass up. Featuring ground beef brisket, cheese, lettuce, dill cornichon and mayonnaise on a toasted brioche bun, it comes with a serve of crunchy battered chips.
PSST! Ever considered cake in milkshake form? The Grounds have that covered, with the Red Velvet being the ‘go-to’ shake.
