These 14 places might be good for little ones, but they are also "adult-friendly." Save the chicken nuggets and wall decals for some other day.
To me, the term "family friendly" normally conjures up images of thousands of screaming kids, garish colours, dirty toys and bad pub fare. Ick. Behold: here are some of my favourite places to go and eat in Melbourne's Inner North. They are not dedicated kids' spaces, but they ARE kid friendly. Now everyone's happy!
Eat inside, eat outside, eat in a greenhouse. Delicious fresh meals. Room to turn a pram. A cubby hut. A fish pond. A caravan kitchen. Talking books in the loo!
A beautiful Oriental-style tea-house and tea-shop. A sunny courtyard. Pram ramps. Incredible, exotic teas (and iced teas). Forget babycino, order a baby tea!
Farmers' markets (2nd Sat of each month) & a cafe for you. Cute animals (many wandering free) for them. Cow-milking. Egg-hunts. Abbotsford Convent is next door
A garden, a plant nursery, community workshops, art exhibitions, organic markets and a cafe with loads of high chairs. Plenty of safe space for toddlers to run
For the grown-ups: gourmet pizza, burgers, beer! Also, booths (easier to manage kids); inside/outside rooms; a "family table" with toys & books. On Brunswick St
