6 Of The Most Fun Dining Experiences For Kids In Brisbane
Family fun and eating out don’t always go hand in hand. However, all that is about to change with these family-friendly dining options, which are guaranteed to please all members of your tribe. From face painting to indoor slides, these are six of the most fun dining experiences for kids in Brisbane.
Arana Leagues Club | Arana Hills
Not only does Arana Leagues Club have a kids’ play area, but a kids’ club. Check-in your child(ren) when you sit down and receive a buzzer so the staff can contact you if needed. The kids will have so much fun you will struggle to get them out of there, even for ice-cream (which comes for free with all kids’ meals). To use the kids’ club, which is open until 9pm/10pm, children must be between three and twelve and be out of nappies. The club also offers a courtesy bus for locals if you fancy a brew or two with your dinner.
Cream House Premium Kids Café | Sunnybank Hills
Ideal for long weekend lunches, the Cream House Premium Kids Café has an indoor play area for kids under six. Entry for adults is free, but there is a charge for kids: $5 for ages six – eleven months ($7 on weekends) and $10 for kids aged one to six years old ($12 on weekends). They have a range of tasty dishes including a good price kids menu with kids pizza for $5. Open from 9.30am – 4pm during the week and until 9pm Friday and Saturday.
Hero Sushi | Chermside
Ok, so there is no fancy play area, but with no wait time for food as you can just grab stuff off the sushi train, this is a great option for families on the run. Whether you are after a quick bite before heading to the movies, or you need a refuel while shopping — even fussy eaters are bound to find something they like here.
Smug Fig | East Brisbane
Located in East Brisbane, the Smug Fig is a kid-friendly cafe with a plant nursery, kids corner with books and a chalkboard, and outstanding food and coffee options. They have a kids menu from $10 offering bacon and eggs, chocolate pancakes and waffles.
Mecca Bah | Newstead
Moving to a new location at the Gasworks in August, Mecca Bah has free face painting and fairy floss from 12pm – 4pm every Saturday. With Middle Eastern-inspired menus — which also include options like pizza for the not-so-adventurous — it's a great chance to introduce your kids to some new dishes.
Mango Hill Tavern | Mango Hill
With a newly renovated indoor play area with books, kids’ TV shows, and games, plus an outdoor playground with slides and a climbing frame, the Mango Hill Tavern is the ultimate kids’ dining experience. Offering a kids menu for $10 which includes a drink, main course and either jelly or ice cream, it is great value, too. You can also add salad or veggies to the kids’ meals for just $1 extra so you don’t have to worry about them missing out on their five a day.
