For a city blessed with a world-class harbour and golden beaches, it’s unsurprising that Sydney has an abundance of good-looking cafes and restaurants. But as for the top model of attractive places to eat? Well it’s the Grounds of Alexandria. At least according to Instagram.
With over 144 thousands followers and hundreds of check-ins every day, in 2016 it again came in as the sixth most Instagrammed place in Australia. Numbers don’t lie baby. The aesthetics are crucial to the success of this multi-million dollar business, employing two full-time social media managers and an in-house stylist. And the investment pays off, with the cafe now a weekend institution for Sydney brunchers (a borderline city obsession even!) You could scroll their feed for hours, but best you just go there yourself, wander from the florist to the pastry cart, before picking up a juice and some avo on toast to enjoy in the garden. As you say goodbye to Kevin Bacon, the resident pig, turn around and take one snap for Instagram. It’s one of the most beautiful places in Australia after all.
