HOT: Sir Charles, 121 Johnston St, Fitzroy

I think there’s a perception that Fitzroy is not a particularly family-friendly area and is full of young hipsters with no kids. Well, having lived in Fitzroy with two very young kids I can attest that it’s not the case – and Sir Charles is a fantastic new addition to the collection of family-friendly cafes […]

HOT: Phat Milk, 208 Mt Alexander Rd, Travancore

Phat Milk in Travancore is one of my favourite family-friendly inner-west food discoveries and it’s shaking up the run-of-the-mill cafe menus normally found in the area. And where is Travancore you might ask? It’s a somewhat forgotten suburb between Flemington and Moonee Ponds. Phat Milk is right by the gates of Flemington Primary School, making […]

HOT: CH James, 86 Station Street, Fairfield

CH James is a cafe and restaurant in Fairfield’s main shopping strip Station Street and it’s aiming to be a neighbourhood hub for Fairfield locals. The fact that it’s named after Charles Henry James, a 19th century parliamentary representative for the local area, is a good start. The cafe spans over two contrasting spaces. The […]

HOT: Chapter Too, Shop 3, 110 Canterbury Rd, Heathmont

I don’t get out to the Outer East suburbs very much but when I went visiting it was great to discover a local child-friendly cafe in Heathmont called Chapter Too. The cafe was spacious with plenty of room for prams as well as numerous high chairs. As we had booked they had already set us […]
