Basking in the frame

Peaking the relaxed ambience over the open window of an Italian cafe in Sydney.

坂の多いシドニーではこうした半地下のお店も見かける。特に旧い建物にそれが多い。

このイタリアン・カフェはいつも賑わい、この日も朝から活気に溢れていたので思わず一枚。窓枠の中は今日も美味しいコーヒーと楽しいお喋りで溢れていた。

Snaps at The Grounds of Alexandria

Here are a couple of snapshots I took at The Grounds of Alexandria, one of Sydney’s most famous and successful cafes.

They opened sometime 5 or 6 years ago in the concept of ‘organic fresh from the garden to the table’ ( something like that, I thought…) and became popular quickly.

My lazy character trait and crowd hatred nature, however, took me this long to visit them.  We went there quite early in one beautiful winter morning.  It was still quiet with less people at that time.  Actually, their serving coffee was good and breakfast was delicious.  The former warehouse has good space for them to make the cafe premises the nice farm styled amusement space.  There was no doubt why they are so popular.  The Grounds are great spot for both locals and tourists.  By the time we finished our breakfast, the site was getting much busier with crowd (as expected).  I was lucky to have took some photos before they were filled with people.

Anyway, it was a lovely morning cafe time I had. 🙂

There were a few stalls preparing for ‘farm fresh’ products displayed on.   This stall was for fruits.

The florist.  They were lovely but the cotton was the best as I had posted in here.
