Colourful & Creative in Cook
Little Oink Café is a quirky, family friendly café which has been open for over a year and already has a strong following. The café is an inviting place to walk into with huge murals on the wall (with a flying pig of course!), eclectic tables and chairs, mismatched paintings and cute little pig ornaments all lined up on a shelf.

Located at Cook shops, this café is a hidden surprise amongst the local businesses. Although small, it is jam-packed full of character and you can't help but notice the large pig loitering out the front.

On the inside there are a few seating options, with tables and chairs by the window looking out...

As well as a little nook inside the door with a comfy couch for a coffee and a chat with a friend. The rest of the café has several distressed tables and tables near the children's play area to choose from.

The play area with child gate is a handy addition, so parents can sit next to the play area and wait for their meals while the kids pretend to make it in the toy kitchen.

Books, toys, kitchen...enough to keep kids entertained while you wait.

The child size milkshakes come out in a little milk jug with a handle and the coffee and meals are served on vintage plates with souvenir spoons from faraway places. When I visited with my daughter Miss Four, we ordered ham and salad rolls from the display cabinet (with my coffee and her milkshake) which were fresh and tasty, however they have also have an extensive menu and regular specials on their chalkboard.

The Little Oink Café is also licenced and open for dinner on selected nights in Winter and more regularly in Summer.. Check out their Facebook page to keep updated on their special events, dinners and Sunday roast pork specials.

Little Oink Café is a small, intimate café which is the perfect place to catch up with a friend, have breakfast with the family or like I did, visit with your child on your own.

For Cook locals, they have their own special secret hidden at their neighbourhood shops.
