Naturally for such a family friendly cafe there are plenty of high chairs and nappy change facilities (toilets are in a separate building).

The breakfast menu contains standard cafe classics and generally a few dollars more expensive than I'd normally expect. For instance it's $15.50 for one slice of toast and smashed avocado with peas and feta and a pan-fried cheesy toasted sandwich is $12. But I'm happy to pay the prices as my kids play for 2 hours without disturbing me – it's the equivalent of a play centre + cafe experience.

Everything is made on site except for the delectable brownies and brookies – brownie cookies – which are seriously addictive.
