Kid-friendly cafes

Nature Boy Cafe, Murrumbeena

nature boy cafe cubbyhouseSo you want to combine play, conversation, coffee and good food all in one go? With a cubbyhouse and courtyard full of toys, it's no wonder this place is the talk of the town.

Be sure to head out straight out the back with your Mother's group or friends as that's where toddler action is going on! From the unassuming frontage, Nature Boy opens out from a narrow cafe into a spacious area for diners.

Right now we love...

Marina Reserve Skate Space & Playground, St Kilda

st kilda skate park kidsAsk us how we entertain and please all three kids at once - this place screams at us all the time! A skate park, a playground with views and the beach and a cafe with take away coffee - winning!

Soak up some rays, take in the sunset (or sunrise!), have a splash and a play at Marina Reserve - a highly valued reserve on the St Kilda foreshore. If you've got a dog, the bonus is, dogs are permitted off leash (but dogs are not permitted within 5m of the playground, BBQ and skate space). There's a large grassed area in between the skate park and playground that's just perfect to throw the ball to your four-legged friend or play some frisbee or even fly a kite.

Playgrounds
