Welcome to Lucy's collection of ideas and adventures designed to inspire others to get off the couch and explore our local environment.

Breezy interior of Cafe Auchenflower

Cafe Auchenflower is homely and child friendly - two super important characteristics for my ideal cafe experience. As you walk into the renovated antique shop, a feeling of relaxation and calm descend. Maybe it's the colorful artworks lining the walls, maybe it's the use of natural light or maybe it's all the cushions and happy customers?

Fantastic kid's meals

My kids made a grateful beeline for the user friendly coloring corner and play area. They loved their creatively presented (which is so, so important for kids) individual platters of ham sandwiches, fruit salad, milkshake and rainbow treat.

Convenient stools overlooking the playground

My mum and I enjoyed our home baked Gran's Bolognese and Deb's Sourdough Sandwich. Both of these are worth driving across town for - believe me. For us, organic Black Star Coffee and She Tea Chai followed with great satisfaction. The kids raced out to the park as soon as their food was consumed and I noticed Cafe Auchenflower had thoughtfully placed stools for the parents to sit on while on "playground duty". The little park on the corner of Annie Street lies beneath a giant shady fig tree - just perfect for summer.

The whole experience was deliciously family inclusive and we will definitely be heading back to Cafe Auchenflower sometime soon - maybe to try their breakfast?
