The Foodrinkery is a godsend. Located right near the rear of the Wattle Park golf course, it is a treasure that needs to be shared. The cafe pumps out great food with a cheeky side of coffee and options for the mini-me's 7 days a week. The cafe is super kid friendly with almost all the front window space available for play and a huge stack of toys to explore. There a stacks of cute touches in decor with a friendly giant pirate guarding the front door, toy aeroplanes flying up ahead and super cute gingerbread men and women at the front counter. Head out the back on a fine day and you will find the courtyard. There are even more toys, some AstroTurf to play on and plenty of chairs and tables under huge market umbrellas for the grown ups. THEN once the kids have had their tucker, let them loose out on the playground next door.
Mamma's special mention: Playgrounds that are super close to a cafe have a special place in every parent's hearts. If you love this too - be sure to check our Wyreena in Croydon or Serotonin Eatery in Burnley.
