Quality childcare in a

Toddler-friendly dining locations

By Jack Kirby 6 January 2010 45

Attempting to take a toddler out for cake, coffee, a meal or even a drink can be difficult for everyone involved!
I’m searching for toddler-friendly dining/drinking locations around the Canberra region.
Some I’ve already discovered include:
Tulips Cafe; – has fantastic enclosed shady playground.
Cafe in the House; – enclosed courtyard for a lazy breakfast – just watch the fountain!
Oaks Brasserie; – let the kids run around the park while enjoying a relaxing breakfast – however we’ve experienced less than prompt service.
Hellenic Club Woden; seems to have a fantastic play area

[Ed] Hopefully some better suggestions than this story.

What’s Your opinion?

We just spent Saturday morning at the Gorman House Markets in reid with a 2 year old and a four year old. There is good food and coffee, space to run around and a free kids play area. There is often gentle live music. There are always lots of kids there, and it is very relaxed. Only good for Saturday morning / lunches though.

I like how the kiddies play area at the Ginninderra Labor Club is right next to the outside smoking area – so, yeah – I wouldn’t recommend that one. Pity, the play area is actually really decent too (esp. for such a small club)…

Keep your snotty-nosed brats at home, mate, at least until they turn 18. I’ve had a gutful of you arrogant, selfish creeps having kids and expecting the taxpayer to pay every step of the way and also expecting us all to put up with them when we go out to lunch or dinner.

yeah – ’cause parents; God knows we need more grumpy nimbys like “A Noisy Noise Annoys An Oyster” out in public than your snotty young kids and arrogant, selfish selves 😛
