HOT: The Commoner, 122 Johnston St, Fitzroy

The Commoner is one of my local favourites – great food, reasonable prices, friendly service and lots of different spaces depending on your dining needs, from intimate couples tables to the outdoor courtyard to upstairs private dining room. If you have kids I highly recommend visiting The Commoner at lunch time – they are much less […]

HOT: Momotaro Rahmen, 392 Bridge Rd, Richmond

Features: pram access but you’re better off sitting outside; high chair; toys and books; kid’s servings; and standard menu suitable for kids. Everyone has a winter comfort food. For my mum it’s Ma Po Tofu. For RM it’s shepherds pie. For my friend M it’s lasagne. For me, it’s soup noodles. Laksa, won ton noodles, […]

HOT: Three Bags Full, 56 Nicholson St, Abbotsford

Three Bags Full is a very cool addition to the industrial chic cafe scene that Melbourne does so well and while it’s not overtly a baby-friendly cafe there are enough features that make it a good destination for parents. It comes with good credentials, as it’s run by the same husband-and-wife team (Sarah Foletta and […]

HOT: Mitte, 76 Michael Street (cnr Rowe Street), North Fitzroy

Features: high chair park your pram outside (we were one of three prams that day!) kid-friendly standard menu I’m not sure whether Mitte is named after the district in Berlin and the German word for ‘middle’ but let’s just say at the outset that there are no German references in the menu, decor or service […]

HOT: The Pantry, 1 Church St, Brighton

Heading to the beachside suburbs of Melbourne is now a day-trip for NKOTB and I. But not only is it geographically distant, malady it’s almost a foreign land compared to my local hood (which centers around the Un-Safeway of Smith Street). This is a land where fake boobs bob perkily above skinny soy decaf lattes, […]

HOT: Breakfast Thieves, 420 Gore St, Fitzroy

Features: high chair; pram access; disabled toilet with pram access; and standard menu suitable for children. As a parent you will know that sleep-ins are a thing of the past. No matter how desperately you need it, your little ones will have you awake at 7am, 6am, 5am whether you like it or not. Weekdays, […]

NOT: Foxy Brown Espresso, 31a South Crescent, Westgarth

Features: multiple high chairs; change table; toys and books; courtyard/play area; pram access: kids menu; and child-friendly standard menu. Foxy Brown Espresso is a retro-tastic oasis for Northcote families in need of a feed, but I’d be careful with what you order. As the name suggests the décor is all groovy 70s – swirling paisley […]

HOT: Brunswick Flour Mill, 337-341 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

Features: high chairs; change table; pram access; kids menu; and child-friendly standard menu. Brunswick Flour Mill is a casual, pretension-free family friendly cafe in the heart of Sydney Road. As their name suggests they are an artisan bakery as well as dining out venue, with loaves, cakes, pastries and ready-made sandwiches all on offer. The all […]

HOT: Lux Foundry, 21 Hope St, Brunswick

Features: Pram access; High chairs; Toys and books; Kids menu; Child-friendly standard menu; and Change table. Lux Foundry is one of the friendliest establishments I’ve been to recently and I can’t rave about it enough. The cafe is housed in a heritage listed building, an old stove foundry, and the decor has retained some of the […]

HOT: Red Door Corner Store, 70 Mitchell St, Northcote

While the demise of the neighbourhood milk bar is a sad testament of our time of mega-malls and supermarket duopolies, the silver lining is that Melburnians have managed to transform the humble corner store into fantastic cafes such as Red Door Corner Store. Red Door Corner Store has retained some of the old-fashioned shop signage and the […]
