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......

Republica's philosophy is simple: The public bar and restaurant for the people, on the beach.republica_restaurant_st_kilda_beach

It’s no surprise spice has a huge influence in the gregarious share plate eating that is prevalent
in the sea ports of all the spice routes in Asia, Europe, Africa and the America’s.
The menu is designed to be a tribute to this food style, with drinks and music to match. Of course you can have a plate all to yourself too.
