A new location @The Grumpy Barista

The Grumpy Barista, previously of the inner west suburb of Petersham, has found its way to a new location in Alexandria.

The café occupies the corner of Garden st and Henderson Road and is industriously styled with cool marble and pink interior and hanging gardens throughout. There’s plenty of space inside and out, so you won’t be waiting long for a table. It’s quite nice to sit outside in the sun too.

Serving Toby’s estate coffee and a range of modern Australian dishes for both breakfast or lunch, as well as some sweet treats, it is a popular café with the locals and visitors to the area alike.

I’ve visited now on more than one occasion and the café is continuously striving to perfect their menu offerings. A group of us dined on this day to sample a number of the menu choices.

Two of us went for the Grumpy’s special of chili scrambled eggs, which were presented atop sourdough bread and a side of heirloom carrots, a heatlhy and wholesome meal.

The winner of the day, and also one recommended to us from where_do_i_eat_pete was the Green Pea Smash with burrata and prosciutto. A great combination of flavors and the burrata was perfectly creamy.

From the sweets menu, we went for the Fig Brioche, topped with macadamia, honey, ricotta and vanilla ice cream (in place of the regular fairy floss). There were a few fruits topping it and would love to have a few more.

The Grumpy’s granola and pannacotta is also not only beautiful, but delicious and served with a raspberry pannacotta. Could be a sweet or breakfast 😉

The venue also serves the famous cronuts (a mix of a doughnut and croissant, filled with a range of insides like cream, Nutella, caramel and topped with oreos etc. Surprise yourself.

 

The guys at grumpy’s are always friendly and hospitable. Make sure you pay them a visit.
