teatime_kid_friendly_cafesOnce upon a time, you could enjoy a leisurely latte and read the newspaper in peace at your local cafe or enjoy a restaurant spulge whenever you felt like it without worrying about pram access or the proximity to the nearest changing table.

But these days you can’t remember the last meal out that didn’t come with crayons. With two children under 2.5 years, boy do we understand this! We scour the 'Kid-Friendly', 'Family Friendly' and Grown-up Melbourne dining scene to uncover tasty spots that really are kid-friendly and foodie worthy, then bring you our favourites. We're not reviewers by any means but we do love Melbourne's cool cafe scene and eat out a lot so I think it's only natural that we share a few of them with you - we really are spoilt for choice in Melbourne.

Sprinkled throughout the cafe and restaurant 'reviews' are tips for dining out with mini royalty, like beat the dinner rush with a late-afternoon seating at one of our fav's and locals, Mr. Wolf.

We're interested in eating where children are welcome and where us adults actually WANT to go. If there’s a kid’s menu, great. If not, we’ll work with what they've got.

So we bring you our family’s experiences eating out in Melbourne! Let the fun begin......

la-petite-creperie-melbourneLa Petite Creperie (found on the corner of Swanston Street and Little Collins Street, opposite the Melbourne Town Hall) is Melbournes' smallest yet sweetest authentic French creperie! 

It is a take-away kiosk where passers by can stop and try a delicious sweet crepe in a take away cone and experience something unique in Melbourne on a day out in the city, every day of the week.  Crepes are authentic and freshly cooked on the spot made with many yummy toppings including nutella, sugar lemon, salted caramel ( our home made recipe) and many more.  They are easy to eat and very affordable!
