Kid-friendly cafes

KereKere Green at Fitzroy Gardens, East Melbourne

kere kere fitzroy gardensThis isn't so much an emphasis on the cafe itself (though it's pretty good and family-friendly), rather, the outside welcoming space for the kids.

This is one of those special places where inside dining works, so does the outdoor fenced-in courtyard or the grassy patch outside complete with sandpit and water play.Beware though it's not the full in splash about in your swimmers type water play but a very shallow watering spot to dip your toes in on a hot summer's day. Combine it with a bite to eat and walk around Fitzroy Gardens then you've set up your day pretty nicely!

Right now we love...
