Carss Park Cafe & Grill: Great Sydney Cafes Beside Playgrounds


Carss Park really scores the trifecta.

There’s a lovely park with a good playground, a cafe right beside that and for summertime splashing the baths are just over there… and there’s even Kogarah swimming pool just across the way.

This is a gloriously family-friendly place in Sydney’s south, well worth a visit.

The cafe is lovely and airy, with plenty of seating and space both indoors and out, see the cafe’s website for MUCH better photos.

Carss Park Cafe and Grill

Carwar Avenue, Carss Bush ParkNSW 2221

Phone: 9547 2567


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.

Toilets/Baby change: Yes

Highchairs: Yes

Children’s menu: Yes

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.

The playground is right smack beside the cafe’s outdoor seating – ideal!
