Today I am posting on something other then my trip to shake it up a little. On Saturday morning a group of us headed to The Grounds in Alexandria for breakfast. As per usual it was raining and the complete opposite to what summer weather should be like. Prepared with umbrellas and boots we had a 30 minute wait for a table which gave us enough time to grab a coffee and sit outside (undercover) whilst we waited.

Sweet display – I was convinced I would order something sweet after I ate my breakfast but I was too full. Gives me the excuse to come back again.

The Grounds - Alexandria - My Kiki Cake - Za'atar pizza & two poached eggs

Now for the food…

I went with the Zaátar pita and added two poached eggs. The pita was topped with tomatoes, avocado, parsley, quinoa and feta. I am not too sure if you were meant to roll this up and start eating it, but I stuck to the safe version of using my knife and fork.

Jes went with the healthy fruit plate option…Since she doesn’t like mango I had the pleasure of eating that for her. The rest of the plate consisted of watermelon, orange, honeydew, plum, strawberry and apple.
