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 […]

HOT: Ladro, 224 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Updated July 2016 Ladro is a stalwart in Melbourne dining scene and after 10+ years I still think they produce some of the best pizza in town. The base is just perfect – stretchy and chewy – and the toppings are balanced and never soggy. I love the casual yet cool vibe of the original […]

Features: pram access; high chairs; kids menu; toys and books; cartoon entertainment; disabled access toilets; change table, baby wipes, plastic bags; and baby sunscreen.

NOT: Sofi’s, The Sofitel Melbourne, 25 Collins St, Melbourne

Features: pram access; high chairs; disabled toilets with pram access; and child-friendly standard menu. I love high tea and I think there’s no reason why I should have to quit my addition now, even with NKOTB in tow.

HOT: Alimentari, 251 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Features: high chairs; pram access (just); and kid-friendly standard menu. New cafes seem to spring up every week in Fitzroy so when a cafe manages to outlast the competition for over a decade you know it must be good. So it goes with Alimentari.  I remember when it used to be just a crushed little front […]

HOT: Carolina, 11 Nicholson St, East Brunswick

Features: high chairs (coming soon); pram access (from rear); outdoor area including sandpit and toys; disabled toilets with pram access; kids menu; and kid-fri endly standard menu  (half serves).

HOT: Bluebird Espresso, 134 Johnston St, Collingwood

Features: pram access outdoor area suitable for kids kid-friendly menu You had me at hello. There are some cafes which just grab you by the coat and give you a big bear hug, providing smiles and instant comfort.
