Is there anything better than a takeaway coffee in the playground?
Yes, actually there is.
Drinking a coffee in a cafe, with your bottom firmly on a seat, whilst your kids play in a playground within eyesight.
As your kids get bigger, this is feasible.
I know, things you thought would NEVER happen!
Here’s a list of my ten fave cafes which are right beside playgrounds.
You’ll find another list of Nine Great Sydney Cafes Beside Playgrounds on this post.
Just click on the name of the cafe to read all the details you need for a fun visit with the family.
It’s divine, and it’s just up the hill from the playground.
Cars are nowhere close. Lets the kids roll down the hill and run off to the playground whilst you enjoy the views and the green glories of the park.
A lovely spot in a wide open park, and very close to this playground which is a terrific one for younger children.
And I see that I don’t have a photo of the cafe itself to load up… must go and take one.
Very funky cafe in a very modern playground, right inside the playground. Hooray!
This is a lovely spot for children of all ages, even teenagers will find this playground fun…. and what parent or carer wouldn’t love the cafe?
Read all about this excellent playground with a brand new cafe here.
Slap bang beside the playground and with plenty of outdoor seating, this is a great spot if your children are old enough to play by themselves.
This lovely cafe is set in a terrific garden centre, well worth exploring with the family. There’s a children’s playground with great sculptures inside the garden centre, plus the excellent Edible Pavilion which kids love.
OK, so this cafe isn’t right slap bang beside the playground, but it’s pretty damn close. The playground we’re talking about is the excellent one with bike track alongside at Bicentennial Park, full review here.
And OK, OK, you couldn’t really sit here and watch the kids in the playground. It’s too far away and – ahem – across a carpark.
But still, it’s a good one for a meal or snacks for before or after a playground Play.
This is a lovely cafe which revels in water views as well as playground views.
It is practically inside the huge, fenced playground, and serves its family clientele well. All details here.
And here’s another good one, but from north of Sydney:
This enormous playground has just got a new cafe, the icing on the cake!
