Many young children enjoy sitting in a cafe with a hot drink and a piece of cake just as much as their parents do. These Brisbane cafes offer a children friendly atmosphere where parents can have their cake and eat it too.
The Hutch Bistro (Shop 6, 100 Days Road, Grange) is a raging favourite with Brisbane parents. The modern Australian bistro and bar offers a playground for the kiddies, as well as a gourmet childrens menu (no chicken nuggets and chips here!) There's breakfast and lunch options, plus a chance for children (or their parents) to customise their meals by choosing a small main (from the simple, like a ham and cheese toasty, to the more fancy, like penne pasta) and adding healthy sides, like celery sticks and carrot batons. Be sure to ask the waiter for colouring books and pencils.
With a name like Gigglepots, how could this West End spot be anything but children friendly? Giggplepots (Shop 5, 235 Boundary Street, West End) is a creative arts studio that runs regular classes and holiday workshops, while the Gigglepots Shop serves up delicious coffees and milkshakes. A great space for children to create and imagine, plus they can be as noisy as they'd like!
Also in West End, the Avid Reader Bookshop (193 Boundary Street, West End) provides a cafe experience for parents and their children, with babychinos and a selection of yummy cakes. The Avid Reader has a storytelling session every Wednesday from 10.30am and a pile of toys to keep them amused.
