Carss Park Cafe & Grill: Terrific Kid Friendly Cafe in Sydney’s South


carss park cafe and grill

Carss Park Cafe is just great, lovely outdoor seating and the playground just alongside 

Carss Park Cafe really is a super kid friendly spot. I should say family friendly really as all the generations of the family would enjoy a visit here. If you are planning a family meal out with grandparents then this spot would do nicely.

Apart from being a good cafe/restaurant in itself, there’s delightful outdoor seating, plenty of space to run around, no cars nearby, a playgrounds right beside the cafe and Carss Park Baths within cooee.

NB It’s Carss with one ‘r’ and two ‘ss’ by the way, but often mistakenly called Carrs Park Cafe or even Cars Park Cafe, also Carss Bush Park Cafe is used. But it’s definitely Carss Park Cafe and Grill!

Carss Park cafe website here

Open: For breakfast and lunch daily and some evenings for dinner—check website.

A lovely cafe which has the ideal location: set in a beautiful park far from traffic and close to a marvellous playground. Tra-la!!

The cafe has tables indoors and outside, with splendid views over Carss Park Baths and the water beyond. There is plenty of space in and out and this is a favourite with local mums and dads, grannies and granddads. The children can run back and forth to the playground, the water is further away but not fenced off.

The cafes menu includes light meals and full meals, plus drinks, teas, coffees, ice creams, ice blocks and milk shakes.  There is a kiosk also as part of the cafe building, however it was closed when we visited.

Mum’s report: There aren’t many places where the kids can play in a great playground and you can order a glass of wine. Good spot for family meals or just for a coffee whilst the kids play.
