This cafe in Carlton North is the most spiffing thing since Picasso. Crayons festoon the tables. The floor is one big collage.



Got creative urges? Got hunger pangs? Got children? Bank balance looking crook? If it's a yes to any of these, Crafternoon cafe is bound to satisfy.

At Crafternoon, you order craft projects with a side of food. You can opt to paint, or decorate your own mask, mirror, badge or bottle opener. The staff will set you up with all the tools to make artistic magic happen. There's glitter, sequins, pipe cleaners, miniature easels, alphabet pasta - you name it. At the back of the cafe, you'll find a mammoth stack of books and magazines for your cutting and pasting pleasure.

To get your creative energy levels up, go for one of Crafternoon's tasty cakes. The cupcakes are topped insane amounts of icing. If you want to get even more in sync with your inner child, there's egg and toast soldiers (you can have it with prosciuitto, for sophistication points).

Sitting at Crafternoon and chomping away on something yummy, while making a masterpiece, will keep any kid or kidult happy. Doing craft can be super therapeutic. Add food, and its a dream.

Most of the cafe's craft projects come in at under $4, and the food is very reasonably priced as well. Crafternoon is also a boon for gifts. Make your own Mother's Day, Father's Day or birthday present, and save some serious dosh.
