 1. The Victoria Park Golf Complex Bistro,  Herston Road, 4006

Bistro dining area

Victoria park Golf Complex Bistro offers so much more than just a good kids meal menu and the opportunity to challenge the family in a round or two of putt putt.  Also on offer is an amazing playground, complete with re-purposed farm tractor, row boat and giant wooden cubby house, and a giant games area. Kids can also enjoy the rock climbing wall and imaginative play areas as well.

 2. Avid Reader. 193 Boundry Street West End 4101.


Independent book stores are, sadly, a dying breed, but Avid Reader has been around forever and makes kids welcome. Head on out the back to the cafe and you’ll find a relaxed spot with a box of toys. A great spot to inspire their love of books.

3. Dragonfly Cafe. Corner of Gympie and Beams Roads, Carseldine 4034

Nestled in Edens Gardens, you’ll find a child friendly cafe where you can enjoy a coffee and the kids can play in the gated playground. When they’re not playing, they’ll be spotting the water dragons or enjoying the great kid’s menu.

7. Miettes Boulangerie Pattiserie. 158 Graceville Avenue Graceville 4075

Miettes is a bakery with some truly yummy treats. Wash them down with a Campos coffee while the kids play with the box of toys provided.

8. Apples On Ainsworth. 36 Ainsworth Street Salisbury 4107

A friendly little cafe in a quiet corner in Salisbury. The food and coffee is divine, and the ambience is all about retro. Just across the road is a lovely little park, so if the kids aren’t up to sitting still, grab your treats to go and have a play in the park.

9. Word Cafe. 442 Enogerra Road Alderley

Word Cafe is within The Word bookshop. There’s a big playground for the kids to keep them entertained.

    Rosetta Sunsmile cafe at Stafford Shopping Centre has a bit of a kids play area great for walkers to 3 year olds. Children will need to be supervised though.

    The Gap Baptist Church on waterworks road has an amazing cafe complete with massive kids space including fully fenced sand pit & first, hall with balls & many tubs full of cars, dolls, dress ups. Great stress free morning to catch up with friends or excellent for rainy day. The coffee & kids coffee/milkshakes are cheap too.

    I just love Ooniverse cafe on Hawthorne road. I only wish I had gone earlier. The place is loaded with activities for my child while I can have a coffee, relax but also keep an eye on him. It’s also secure so I’m not afraid that he will run off (and he is a runner!). My son loves the blow up animal balloon which is given every visit. Nicky (the owner) is lovely,fun and makes great coffee. I know many places say “relax while your child plays” but this has been the only place that I can actually do that.

    The Bush Pantry Cafe in Capalaba is a lovely cafe and very kid friendly. They have a large outdoor deck and seating area with lovely bushland views and they have a kids play corner and loads of space for prams and big groups. They also support employment of people with disability so a great cafe to get behind. They are only open weekdays though.
