Cheeky Kids Will Love Cheeky Chewies

It’s always exciting to find a good restaurant that caters well to little ones, and at Cheeky Chewies you’re greeted with a big smile, leaving with full bellies and happy kids!

Whether it’s the soft play kids’ room or the large selection of high-quality yummy meals (plus bubble tea!), there are plenty of reasons to keep you coming back to this family-friendly restaurant in Laverton.


Cheeky Chewies Café and Restaurant Laverton

Located just off the highway in Laverton, Cheeky Chewies is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. The restaurant is comfortable, clean and spacious, making it a great spot to meet up with friends or enjoy a great-value family meal.

An attentive and warm feel from the team behind the counter ensures you are welcomed and with their fun-loving flair, you’ll also feel part of the Cheeky family.


With an ethos of serving their community, owners and siblings John and Celine Chew employ young locals, strive for best sustainability practices and have a strong focus on accommodating families. There is clearly a lot of passion for good, affordable, tasty food too.


The menu is delicious and diverse. Talented chefs bring Asian fusion to life with very generously sized meals mingling between western, Japanese and Malay tastes and flavours, with a touch of Chinese and Thai in there too.


Whether you’re after a burger or a big breakfast, ramen or rice, noodles, hot pot, laksa, ribs.., the list goes on. Then there’s the range of homemade waffIes for dessert and most notably, freshly made bubble tea.

I must say I haven’t seen any items coming out of the kitchen that I wouldn’t want to sink my teeth into.


For the kids, there are seven kids meals to choose from and for $11.90 they will get a drink, a side of cut fruit and a small toy included.


Cheeky Chewies’ little room of soft play is excellent for preschool aged kids. There’s a soft slide, seesaw and two busy boards on the wall, with colourful soft matting on the floor. It’s a perfect break-out area for busy little legs before or after meals.


The kids area is for under 6s only and of course requires adult supervision. Even though we got up from our meals a few times to go and play, it wasn’t difficult or disruptive to our dinner.

There are high chairs and colouring activities too.


The Cheeky Chewies Marketplace came about during COVID lockdowns. Here, you can select specialty items and cooking ingredients to take home, including Asian sauces, bubble tea, Japanese snacks, kids activities and even accessories.


With their success in feeding families since 2017 in Laverton, the Cheeky Chewies family have opened a second restaurant in Werribee. With the same values and family-friendly focus, it’s definitely worth a visit, too.
